Please use the size chart to get your correct size, they should fit snug to prevent leakage. Measure yourself at the widest part of your bum to get the correct hip measurement.
I adore this style; it feels like a proper hug around your tummy. They lasted a whole day and night without budging (I've a light-medium flow). I tried hand-washing my two pairs and I think it's fine for a quick turnaround but the machine wash was definitely better. Size guide on the Thinx site is very useful because it includes a round-the-butt measurement. The hi-waist does sit right on your belly button, which I prefer but some might find too high for their clothes. Either way, Thinx is absolutely worth the investment.
Now I know my size I will never go back. They maintain their shape and wash really well, are structured, and have a firm hold without being restrictive. The mesh paneling in breathable, and the whole pant is comfortable, and when they say High waist they are, so they feel so much more secure. The lining that would be towel has fantastic coverage, from the top of the vulva all the way to the back of your bottom, which helped me wear these with confidence, especially as I have a heavy flow.
