Thunderpants 90% organic cotton/10% spandex fabric is sturdy, very stretchy, and has great retention to give our garments just enough stretch and bounce back. It helps the undies to stay up and on, and the other garments to keep their shape without sagging or bagging. We use the same soft organic cotton blend to cut our binding into a wide strip instead of using elastic so there is never any irritating elastic against your skin. The Original comfy undies that don't go up your bum. This very comfortable full brief sits in the natural crease at the top of the leg and usually hits just below the belly button. The Original is a higher rise, but not a high waisted undie. This is our most popular style and easily fits many body types.
