I have bought and worn these panties for many years, but I also buy some from other sources now, and will continue to do so. The reasons? The first is the severe limitations on colors. I prefer beige (and also) black, but the "assorted" selections are totally unacceptable. I would love to have options of all beige, all black, and basic colors (mix of beige, black & white), but this is not available. (It used to be available in retail stores.) I would happily pay more if color options were available. The new sizing may run small, because I still wear the same size after losing 30 pounds. I really do like the fact that the waist is not too high, and actually corresponds with my natural waist. The overall quality seems to have declined over the years. It seems that they get stretched out and baggy sooner now. I wish you would consider customers' comments. I am not the first to complain about the garish colors and prints! They are not acceptable. I would like options.
