The ones on ebay, What's up with those, I don't hear too much about them on these boards, was wondering if anyone liked them? They seem to be just about the only knit soakers you can get at the ready. Are they any good? Opinions appreciated!
TIA!

We have actually had a LOT of discussions about them here -- you could probably find them in a search.

I love them! I have 2 soakers and 1 pair of shorts with 2 more shorts on the way. She has done 3 custom ones for me which I much prefer over the ones just listed on ebay.

They are very well made, super soft and the best price out there.

The concensus here has been we all really like them!

I am curious as to who makes them and where they come from.
We've discussed this issue several times, and I think the final answer after someone emailed her was that her relatives in China knit them for her. So, I don't think it's slave labor or sweatshop.

She has SsIL in China who knit for her -- she pays them much more than minimum wage there which is supporting her family. She it is very nice to work with. Each one is hand knit, not machine knit. She will do pretty much any custom order you want.

Seriously do a search in this forum -- we have talked about her and her soakers at length.

I have one and really like it for DAY use. It is very trim, stretchy and soft...but definately not thick enough for nights around here. The price certainly is right. I would be interested in a custom since the thighs of all of the ones on eBay are really too big for dd

Sorry, I hadn't seen those discussions. I wasn't implying anything, just curious more than anything. Thanks for answering my question.
