Let me just say first, these underwear are amazing!!! I stumbled upon these when I was google searching best underwear to help reduce UTI’s (maybe tmi but have struggled with these for a long time) I had no idea there was such thing as “anti-bacterial” underwear. So when I found these I was more than thrilled to give them a try! When I think of hemp I usually think rough but when they arrived I was so happy with how soft the material is, and the band is stretchy and so comfortable! I actually went out on a limb and bought the 6 pack for myself and then I also bought the 6 pack of boxer briefs for my husband (which he absolutely loves as well). I sized up in them and am so happy I did, I usually wear a M or L sometimes depending on material so I wasn’t sure if I should get the L or XL for sizing up. I decided on the L which fit great! I think the XL would probably still fit as well but be a little more loose. I am 5’5 and 150lbs. I absolutely love these underwear though, after two days of wearing them my husband and I both had the same comment “we sometimes forget we have any on at all” hahaha. So comfy!!! I don’t know how they do it, but truly they are so great. I actually am in the process of replacing ALL our underwear with WAMA. I just ordered the boxer style for girls and hipster style so I’m excited to try these when they arrive in a few days. The thong style I have always loved for no show panty lines with jeans and leggings and these are by far the best underwear I have tried! They are super breathable and soft. Definitely so thankful I stumbled upon this company!
