These are definitely good for what they are. There are times when these are useful, travel for example, and in an emergency bag of clothes as well. One pair will hold up to at least a few washings so far but I like that they can be thrown away with ease if need be. Sometimes traveling for hours makes you all sweaty and it is convenient to simply be able to toss them out or wash them out and let them dry and wear again but throw out at the end of the trip. It is nice to have this option when traveling and they are surprising comfortable and don't even ride up or give panty lines.
