Hanes Women's Classics White Cotton Bikini 3-Pack
What a difference from the original all white bikini that I have always purchased before - very inferior - I always wash new underwear before wearing, so I did notice that there were little holes - not that many that you would see them immediately - also, the elastic band used to be covered with the same material as the pants, now it is just elastic and there are threads hanging - Hanes quality has certainly disappointed me - not ordering from them any longer - problems with the socks, too.

I am glad that you decided to have the white cotton again. It is healthier and more breathable.

Only choice if you want all white, but it's good
My gripe with the other panties Hanes sells: color. You don't get much of a choice ("assorted"), and many of the colors are too gaudy and the patterns too ugly. I'm a grown woman now. I don't wear bright orange panties or hideous pattens--not a little girl!
The waistband on these is really solid. They are of higher quality than the similar looking No-Ride up cotton 6-Pack (see recommended products below), which I totally love but regret is not sold in whites anymore (see my review there), so the extra cost is somewhat justified. However, the cotton is not quite as soft. But if you want white, this is your only option at the moment, it seems.
One more plus of the waistband: no brand name on it. I don't mind the world knowing I wear Hanes panties if the top slips out, but not everyone does. There's also some glimmer in the pattern-thing you see in the picture. It adds a hint of high class to the panties.
They do run a bit small and tighter, if you're used to the No-Ride up bikinis. They rise a bit lower (especially in front, with a slight scoop), which is always good too. I can wear my usual size 5 without any complaints or discomfort.
However, I knocked these down one star because they're not as good a value as I come to expect from Hanes. With only 3 to a pack, I expect a bit more for the money.
