Yay or Nay??
I happen to like them. Love them, almost.
I recently purchased a few and though I wear them out ..I think they're best for bed time dress-up.
They have a super high waist and most often my jeans don't reach that high - so with a pair that's low-rise, you may feel as if you're wearing an exercise band o_O lol.
[This is strictly dependent upon how thick your fabric is.]
But without any outer layering, they create a pretty sexy silhouette.
& don't listen to your friends, they aren't Granny Panties lol.
I like to pair mine with lace midriffs.
