I've had underwear like this in the past so was pretty excited I found them again. They are definitely not the same! There is no rubber type band in the lace to hold it up so the entire pair of underwear constantly falls down. I ordered 9 pairs online and they were shipped in 5 different packages!!!! What a waste as you had a large postal bag, inside was a medium clear bag and then 6/9 were wrapped individually in clear bags. Unfortunately I washed 3 pairs to try so I am only able to return 6 of them.
