Bali Skimp Skamp Brief, sizes 11-14
I thought at last I had found plus size panties that didn't pinch or bind, they were comfortable but I hadn't even wore them half a day when I noticed the elastic trim around the legs was coming apart at the seam of the crotch of the panty... I bought 5 pairs and the other 4 I am returning..

Serious Quality Assurance Errors
Ever since I was a panty size 7, about 20 years ago, I have adored first Henson then Bali Skimp Skamps. For the past 10 years I have gradually gone from size 8 to 10. Seeking a bit extra room I tried the 11's. The plus size version has a couple problems with the gusset, wider and noticeable shorter than the regular (up to size 10) version...with more flesh/heavier thighs you do not need a wider panel, and the shorter front to back measurement does not allow for panty liners of even average length. That would rate 4 stars but in the last 6 months, and over 2 dozen pairs, I have noticed a very serious quality assurance error in the size 11 panties making them smaller than the size 10's! The elastic in the waist, and legs has less give, and a smaller circumfrance making the panties very uncomfortable and at times almost unwearable. I have tried a couple pairs of the 12s, and they are a bt large for what I need, but okay. More telling, I have had to go back to Bali size 10 which are snug but worlds more comfortable. Please, please address this issue which I have noticed in 1 color of the 10's and all colors of the 11's...seem to be coming from a manufacture site "P".

Not like they used to be...
This latest order of Skip Skamp Briefs was a complete surprise. They were not at all like the previous orders.
1. The fabric was different: it was tight, stiff and had very little give/stretch. It, also, did not feel as silky, as earlier pairs, it was rougher and seemed thicker. The color was also off from a side by side comparison with older pairs.
2. Although I ordered exactly the same size as previously, they were too small, more like a size 9, than an 11. I did check the label to make sure it was not a mistake in packing. The label and the packing slip said they were size 11's. Generally speaking, a 10 is tight but wearable, an 11 is comfy, which made not even being able to get them on such a shock.
I don't know if they changed factories, or fabric or both, but I will not be buying this product again.
I am very disappointed in this company, it is not easy to find a well fitting and comfortable pair of full briefs in plus size, and I will have to start searching again.

The very best panty. period.
I love these panties. They fit beautifully, don't slip and wash well. They feel light and wonderful. I won't buy any other kind and I hope Bali never stops making them.
