'Breathable, cool and comfortable': This breezy cotton Hanes underwear is on sale for less than $2 apiece

Brand-name quality at a bargain-basement price: 'They are soft, stylish and wear well even after hundreds of washings,' raved an Amazon reviewer.145 down there, isn't it? A great solution for keeping things light and breathable is going with 100% cotton fabric for your undergarments, and Hanes has a fan-favorite six-pack of hi-cut cotton briefs on sale now at Amazon for a mere $1.50 apiece.

These panties are made with 100% cotton, which many OB-Gyns recommend as the healthiest option for breathability.

At just $9 for a pack of six, you're getting each piece in this set of panties for only $1.50 a pop. That's much less than most brand-name underwear costs per item! Yet, you're still getting that Hanes brand-name quality — and at a stellar savings. These haven't been marked down any lower than this since January (and even then, only by about 50¢).

You can never have too much underwear, but it's a waste if it isn't good underwear. Hanes certainly knows their undergarments, and their Hi-Cut Cotton Briefs are longtime favorites of fans who keep going back to them as their everyday undies. Made of 100% cotton, these panties are lightweight, breezy, and cooling — eminently important factors as the temperatures continue to climb towards summer. Cotton is also one of the preferred fabrics of many OB-Gyns, due to its breathability. The fabric is moisture-wicking, too, so no swamp tush here!

The high cut of the underwear also provides a sleeker look, with full coverage in the front and back for most wearers. And, since the cotton fabric is preshrunk, there's no worrying about a single wash changing the size — these will stay the same fit from your first try-on to your fiftieth wear. Comfortable leg holes and a stretchy waistband are also featured to flex right along with you.

More than 6,000 Amazon shoppers have given the Hanes Hi-Cut Cotton Briefs a fresh five-star rating, with tons of reviewers raving about their comfort, quality and even their cooling capabilities.

"I have always depended on Hanes hi-cut cotton panties for comfort and affordability. They are soft, stylish and wear well even after hundreds of washings," shared a reviewer. "I have fancier underwear, but Hanes is my go-to underwear for every day. They are good for my budget and good for my body."

"Breathable and cool. Very comfortable," said a shopper. "I don’t know who would want a heavyweight material pair of panties, but it's not this girl from sweltering Florida." Sounds ideal for the upcoming high-temp months — and we're not the only ones who think so: "Thin and breathable. Perfect for summer wear," said another fan.

Many customers call these Hanes hi-cuts their everyday go-tos. "I have tried many different brands, styles and fabric panties and they never seem to fit correctly. I've found a winner with these Hanes," said one. "They run true to size, there has been no shrinkage, and so far, they have held up like new. I can wear them under slacks and there is no visible panty line. The leg openings don't curl up, and the waist band stays put."

Curvier queens may want to shop around if they're looking for complete coverage: "Every aspect of these panties are great UNLESS, like me, you have a full bottom ... then they ride up ALL the time and give you wedgies," noted a frank wearer. "I don't think they were designed for fuller tushies. ... Otherwise, they are terrific."

It's also worth noting that the color and pattern selection may vary from what is pictured, which is noted up-front by the brand in the Amazon listing. "This would have been a five-star purchase, except that 'assorted colors' does NOT mean you will get the color assortment in the photo," advised a reviewer. "I ordered an assortment of soft blues and greens and was sent an assortment of VIBRANT HOT PINK. I kept them and am otherwise very pleased with the fit and comfort — I'm just not thrilled with the colors."

The colors you receive may vary from what is pictured here, but that's no biggie when it comes to the excellent price offered on this six-pack.
