Looks like you're losing some of the definition that's in the original. Try a darkening or steepening curve in Luminosity mode set under your color layer. Masked to the panties, of course.

Re: Color change needs some feedback

Looks good but yeah needs more contrast. A white object provides a lot of fill both on itself and surrounding elements, where as a darker or purple object would have a lot less fill and hold more contrast.

A quick and simple way that I tested on the image is to duplicate the background layer, mask it for the panties only and set it to softlight. This added a nice contrast but caused a minor colour shift so clip a Hue/Sat layer and adjust hue to match original purple

Yeah, that's why I suggested putting the contrast layer under the color layer. If it's part of, or above, the color layer it increases saturation; but if it's beneath, then the Color layer gets the final say on hue and saturation.

Just my habit to separate color from tone, but both ways should get to the same place.
