The Sky Rise are the high waisted version of our comfy undies that don't go up your bum. In sizes small - 3x large this very comfortable full brief sits in the natural crease at the top of the leg and reach 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.
Caitlin is a size Medium: 5'5" tall, 34" bust, 30" waist, 40" hips
Breana is a size 2X Large: 5'4" tall, 46” bust, 37” waist, 53” hips
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!
Sky Rise Balance by Lisa Congdon
Sky Rise FTW!
I was hesitant to try the high rise because I'm petite (5'1") but OMG I LOVE THEM! Paired with the bralette, just perfect for hanging out around the house and feeling cute or sleeping in. And like all the other pieces I own, super comfy.
Love Farm to Bun Indigo Sky Rise
I bike in skirts and these are such a wonderful undergarment to maintain modesty in the gustiest of rides. The high rise is a great fit for skirts — no bulges.
I wanted these to work
I wanted durable, full-coverage, high rise underwear and these looked like they would work. I'm 5'1'' but I saw where these fit on the shorter models and got the sky rise anyway. That was a mistake, they sit about 1.5" above my waist. My main problem is with the leg holes. I love that the gusset is wide enough, but the thick fabric binding sits below the crease between torso and thigh. It cuts into my legs and rolls up. It's uncomfy and unflattering. I have thick thighs, but so do most of the models, so I thought these would work. I don't think a bigger size would help because the waist and hips fit great. I'm good at sewing so I plan to make some alterations to my pair so they fit my body better. The fabric is sturdy and will probably last a decade.
I love just about everything about these underpants . . . except for the very pokey, scratchy tag on my left hip that tells the size and washing instructions. I tried, on a different pair, cutting it off--but that just made the remaining end of the tag more aggressive. Those tags torment me.
Love the design! So cute and comfy.
