An Overview of Styles for Women's Underwear

Jun 20, 2008
When it comes to a woman's undergarments, there is often a natural conflict between comfort and sensuality. Although many brands have claimed to incorporate both, few seem to have actually made the grade.

When picking panties, we tend to go in one of two directions. The first is to go for something sexy. The second is to go for something comfortable and practical. Oddly, the two are rarely put together in most bottoms.

Much like bras, bottoms or panties come in a wide variety of styles. You wouldn't think so at first glance, but they do. Let's take a quick look at the styles and when you might use them in relation to other clothing or events.

Every structure must have a foundation. When it comes to women's underwear, the full brief is definitely that foundation. The design maximizes support through coverage. These briefs are very practical, but not the most appealing visually.

The bikini brief is our second most common panty style. As the name suggests, it is a bit more revealing than your basic brief with higher cut legs and lower cut backs. A more seductive version is the string bikini that comes with straps around the hips.

A step up on the intimate scale from the full brief is the French cut. This is a comfortable brief that has a high leg cut allowing for shorts and skirts, but lots of upper support. Not quite a bikini look, but definitely headed in that direction.

How low can you go? These days, the low cut of jeans is making many wonder about the answer. You need bottoms, but don't want them to show. Hipsters are the answer. These bottoms provide you with support, and a low cut waist that hides them below the cut of the jeans.

Like the look of a thong, but can't stand the high riding uncomfortable sensation? Give a Tanga a try. It is essentially a thong, but with more back support. It is an attempt to combine the comfort of a regular bottom with the sexiness of a thong.

Panties may seem a minor thing when it comes to outfits, but they can make a big difference. From horrific panty lines to dark colors showing through light colored pants, we've all seen mistakes made. Don't be one of the unlucky who has the same problems.
