There's some, but not much vpl, and they are comfortable. The legs show no vpl, although the waistband does show a little at the front. I presume this will lessen as my bump gets more baby and less Malteser-filled! (I'm 20 weeks pregnant.)
Good for wearing under the ruched dresses, as you can't see them at all, but would show slightly under a non-ruched fitted lycra-type dress.
Generally a great product, although my main gripe is that they do feel very synthetic - would have preferred a cotton gusset to make them feel less 'nylony'."
