The people who know about these things told us we need longer product descriptions to satisfy google (our overlord of online searches). Did you know A.I. can write production descriptions now?? All we have to do is give it some appropriate key words and boom! So easy! Look at this masterpiece. This is actually real good... Might be out of a job soon!


"Sky Rise Balance by Lisa Congdon offers an innovative blend of style and comfort. Crafted with organic cotton and a snug fit, the collection features vibrant undergarments with colorful shapes, designed and produced locally. Experience the perfect balance of comfort and fit with this unique collection."


Here are the keywords we provided: organic cotton, underwear, high rise, colorful shapes, locally designed, undies, snug fit.

The Sky Rise are our high waisted style. In sizes SM - 4XL, this ultra comfortable full brief sits in the natural crease at the top of the leg and reaches all the way to your natural waist. They taper in at the top, so will sit and stay right at the waist all day long. Perfect for those who are looking for an extra high wedgie-proof undie. 

Thunderpants 90% organic cotton/10% spandex fabric is sturdy, very stretchy, and has great retention to give our garments just enough stretch and bounce back. It helps the undies to stay up and on, and the other garments to keep their shape without sagging or bagging. We use the same soft organic cotton blend to cut our binding into a wide strip instead of using elastic so there is never any irritating elastic against your skin. All the garments are made locally and lovingly in Portland, OR.

To preserve the vibrant colors and life of the fabric we suggest you do not soak or bleach your Thunderpants items. Use a gentle detergent in a cold machine wash and dry your Thunderpants on the line (they will survive drying on low, but may fade a bit and cut down slightly on longevity). If you do wash warm or dry, make sure not to use too much heat as heat will break down the spandex!

Too deep

Love the fabric. The fit does not work for me. They are too deep so roll. Would love to try another size I guess, but only if the issue isn’t the same

Comfortable and cute

I really like these panties. They are stretchy but still hold you in, which as a plus size mom, I need. My one item of feedback is how wide the crotch is. It's like about an inch and a half wider than any feminine pad, so I can't wear these while having my period because the wings don't make it around the pad. It seems like an odd scaling for the larger sizes...the space between your legs doesn't get bigger, just because your are a bigger size. I would still buy from them again, since the fit, aside from that, is excellent.

It's true our crotch is wide! -wider than most undies, but it's not wider in bigger sizes. Every size, from XS to 4XL, has the same crotch width, because, as you say, the space between your legs doesn't get bigger :) We agree this does make use with feminine pads a bit annoying (I have experienced this myself too), but it is mostly a selling point for people who are looking for undies that are full coverage and don't ride up.
