Panty Types And Styles

Bikini

Bikinis are a type of underwear similar to the brief but without as much coverage. Typically sits 3 inches below the natural waistline, making bikinis a good choice for lower-cut pants. Full seat coverage plus a scooped-out leg line. They also come in string bikini form, in which the leg holes are constructed with a thin string of fabric.

Hipster

Like the name suggests, the waistband on hipster (or hip hugger) underwear sits on the hips, a couple of inches below the waist, and have low-cut leg holes.  You might think of the hipster as a fusion between the bikini and the boyshort. So, if you like the look of a bikini but want just a tad more coverage, then the hipster could be the perfect solution.

Thong

Thongs are made for super minimal coverage (to avoid visible panty lines), with a T-shape string in the back. Like the bikini, it sits three inches below the waist with the sides usually hitting right at or above the hip bone. They come in a variety of fabrics, from cotton to lace, so that you can wear them every day and on special occasions.

Boyshort

Boyshorts are inspired from men’s briefs or what we call as ‘men’s boxers’. They are very similar to shorts, but act like panties. They offer full coverage at the front as well as the back, thus qualifying as the most modest panties in the market. The best idea is to wear them underneath your shorts and skirt dresses. Boy shorts have a variety of rises in the waistline (sit at the natural waist to 3 inches below the natural waist). The leg line typically hits below the buttocks, but some are more “cheeky”.

Cheeky

The cheeky is exactly what you think it is! It’s similar to a bikini with a more exposed back. The cheeky thong covers a little bit of your cheeks, but isn’t a full-on bikini fit. These are perfect to wear with jeans, because you won’t get a strong panty line and you have a little more coverage on your lady parts from bulky jean seams.

Brazilian

This popular underwear name refers to how the back of the panty looks, while the front can be any style. The most common way to describe a Brazilian panty is that it is wider in the back than a thong, but much less coverage than a regular bikini. This style is a popular cut for both underwear and swimsuits in Brazil, which is where its name originated.
