A wing structure is removably attachable to a garment facing side of the baffle and includes laterally extending flap portions having dimensions so as to wrap around the crotch portion of an undergarment. The garment facing side of baffle includes hook material defined in a pattern extending generally over the surface thereof, the hook material providing a primary attachment between the baffle and the undergarment. The wing structure has a body facing side of a hook compatible material and a garment facing side comprising hook material defined in a pattern extending generally over the surface thereof. The wing structure is variably positionable on and removably attachable over the entirety of the garment facing side of baffle.
