I have 40” hips, 32” waist and purchased size M. I wouldn’t want any smaller on the waist and probably wouldn’t be able to get a small on over my hips, but after going for a walk and lounging around in them I found the waist to be soft and comfortable. The back fits a bit loose compared to the compression in the front, so there is room for a fuller bottom than mine and also no panty lines. I bought them with the intention of wearing under dresses to avoid lines in weird places in the front which this underwear completely smoothes. They also work under extra high rise pants and shorts, however the back seam where the lace meets the sheer part is definitely noticeable under thin fabric so I might not wear them under a dress or skirt that’s tight in the back and would only wear under pants that go above my belly button. Lastly, I love the high leg cut it is not restricting at all despite these being full coverage, which is sometimes an issue in other full coverage underwear. They’re soooo fun and sexy so I’m happy I have them!
I purchased the Mercedes high cut panty during the Garment pop-up and I love them. They are so pretty, and so feminine but also perfectly functional. They have amazing coverage, they stay put and the waist does not roll down. They are perfect!
The fit of the brief is perfect and I love the combination of lace and sheer fabric. The lines and cut of the piece are incredibly flattering! I definitely feel sexy in these while also feeling adequately covered! My only complaint (and hence the four stars instead of five) is that the cotton lining on the inside stops midway up the front of the panties, so when I put them on there is a visible line across my midsection. I sent an email mentioning the issue and I've been told they are going to revisit this design decision in the new year, so this critique may not apply to future pairs! I should also mention the customer service has been grand!
The garment is extremely comfortable. It stays in place, does not bunch up or slides down. The fabric is very comfortable and pleasant to wear. I received excellent service and follow up from the team and now own a whole collection of items from the designer. I would absolutely recommend Mayana Geneviere to any woman.
