Swimwear, waistbands--anything that needs to stay up while stretching.

It looks like PJ elastic to me.

It reminds me of Sportswear Elastic that is used in waistbands for shorts or sweatpants. You attach the elastic to the upper edge using a zig-zag stitch or serger, flip it down, and stitch in the channels with decorative topstitching. However, you can just stitch one row at the bottom if you choose.
