The fabric has a reasonable amount of stretch and these briefs provide full coverage. With elasticated waist band and leg openings, these will give a snug fit with confidence and support if worn by a man. They are obviously made for women who, I am sure would also find this a wonderful item of clothing. The front is finished at the top with a small matching bow. The gusset on these knickers is cotton, matching in colour and over 2 1/2 inches wide making these an ideal choice for both men and women. This is a very good quality item of clothing made by Valbonne Lingerie.
