We are sorry this item did not fit properly for you. This style features moderate control and to provide support has one-way stretch fabric. Note that this item hits about 2 inches below the navel, but if you are a taller women, it may sit even further below. For a panty that sits a little higher and has more stretch please try our Teri Marlene D Full Coverage Microfiber Panty 311.
Teri Response: We are very sorry to hear about the issue with the sizing chart. The size chart takes your given dress size and converts it into a panty size. We are sorry these did not work out for you.
