I am loving these new underthings!! Jockey briefs with fabric covered elastic is definitely worth the extra bucks I paid. The package of three pair was $25 but I bought them on sale.
The elastic on my previous brand was sewn together at the side seam on the inside of the panty. That created a bump which tended to rub on the skin at my waist. Combine that with the waistband of pants and it's tolerable. But add pantyhose, a slip and a skirt and it's miserable!
To those of you who are thin enough not to require elastic waists in trousers or skirts, this may not be a big deal. But I am feeling very happy today!!
Thank you, Jockey brand!
