I’m a pear shape size 12 (size 10 tops, size 12 bottom, 5’5 with 29 inch legs). I followed advice in other reviews to see size down to a S, however I would say these are exactly a size 10. They are slightly too small for me (not a high waist fit and the leg tops are slightly too tight). Obviously I can’t comment on whether the size M would have been ‘enormous’ as other reviewers claim, but I can confirm that the S are a 10 (would probably be too large for a size 8)
Since the birth of my baby, my period has been really heavy! These pants were amazing! No leakage, no wet feeling. The great thing is the absorbing pad is large and long, so goes all the way up covering the back too.
Also protects against smell! There’s no waftage - which is really important to me
My main concern was feeling wet. These are, hands down, the best period underwear. No wet feeling, no puffiness like you’re wearing a nappy, and very nice-looking. I’ll be buying more.
