I've tried several other brands offerings for period briefs and these are BY FAR my favorite. The fit is classic, major bonus points for the color selection(!!!), excellent coverage and absorption and the WOOL gusset! I'm beyond thrilled to find some period underwear that I can wear under light colored clothing (I'm light/fair skinned so the beige works well enough as a nude for me). I also really appreciate this brand's range of absorbency options. I have some days that are super heavy and then more days that are super light. I also deal with spotting. Its been a challenge to find lighter absorbency for the days that I might have just used a thin liner in the past. These are my holy grail undies, super close to being 'normal' cotton briefs, with just enough protection and breathability. And my goodness, I am so relived to find a period product that has a more breathable gusset. The wool makes a WORLD of difference. My nether regions feel so much better with the breathable wool layer. I've used Aisle and Thinx for years and both use a thick synthetic layer in the gusset and my body hates it. These are my new absolute favorite brand! I ordered my usual size in underwear/bottoms and they seem to run pretty TTS. I am usually a medium or a 6 for reference. I agree with one of the other reviewers that the elastic is tight at first, but I also noticed that it eases up pretty quickly and hasn't bothered me at all.
