Choosing the perfect style of undies for you
Picking the right styles of women’s underwear isn’t easy. From fit and fabric to colour and design, there are several things to keep in mind when choosing the right style of women’s undies for you.
A classic style of women’s underwear with a little less coverage than your standard pair of briefs, bikini briefs tend to sit a few inches below the waist and feature high-cut leg holes. Bikini briefs are nice and versatile, you can wear them with anything from your favourite pair of skinny jeans to a floaty dress.
If you’re after a little more coverage, look no further than a pair of women’s briefs. Designed for extra comfort, briefs provide lots of front and back coverage. Women’s briefs come in a range of rises, from low to mid to high. Wear yours with low to high-rise pants.
If you’re after a pair of women’s undies that teams with low-rise jeans and pants, the hipster style is for you. Women’s hipsters (or hip huggers) sit on the hips, a couple of inches below the waist. Hipster underwear has low-cut leg holes and shows about ¾ cheek.
Showing cheek’s not your thing? Maybe boylegs are for you. Women’s boylegs or boyshorts are inspired by men’s briefs and are a little like the hipster. The main difference is that boylegs have a lower-cut leg – some go down as low as the thigh. Wear your women’s boyshorts with medium to high-rise pants and enjoy the comfort they provide.
Forget coverage. G-strings form a T-shape like a thong but feature a thinner string for even more cheek exposure. Perfect for when you’re wearing form-fitting styles such as bodycon skirts and dresses and tights and leggings, a women’s g-string will avoid visible underwear lines.
After something a bit more cheeky? Go for a Brazilian bikini. Featuring a low-rise cut, this hybrid of the bikini and g-string offers a playful touch and provides moderate bum coverage. A fun and feminine design that’s also great for wearing with your favourite dress or pair of skinny jeans.
