As expected, these offer less coverage than the briefs, which is fine, but the leg openings are also tighter with lots of VPL action. I can see that other reviewers have mentioned the same thing, so it's not just me. I will buy a size up if/when I order these again or stick with the briefs. Might even try the men's briefs! Regardless, the material is lovely, they don't get cold and sweaty when I go hiking, and even though they're a bit small on me they don't ride up.
Thank you for your feedback, Yes so the Briefs are a fuller coverage and hipsters are half the coverage of the Briefs. They come up lower than the briefs that will come up to around the belly button. I will be sure to pass your feedback on to the team as this is appreciated.
Great to hear that they have been perfect for when you go hiking and stay in place.
Absolutely fantastic pants, no chaffing when walking over 30km in a 25 degrees hot day. Super comfy, body temperature was perfect in them. Worth every penny
Great to hear that you are loving your Merino Briefs and you are chafe free! We love this!!
We are pleased to hear that you feel that they are worth every penny and love them as much as we all do.
I’m a small size 8 and have the merino shorts in a size s so thought I’d try these. I will keep them to wear under running shorts but won’t wear them under leggings as the seams show too much. Shame as the fabric helps reduce sweat rash and there is no silly gusset seam.
Sadly the fit was too small
I've had many pairs of your pants which are great but these are smaller and create an awful bum bulge!! I've worn them so can't return. Disappointed in a much loved brand
Thankyou for your feedback, Sorry to hear that you did not get along with the Merino Hipsters. We are always more than happy to help if you have any queries
