The Best Underwear
April 7, 2009
We’ve found the best ladies underwear from thong panties to string bikinis and every lingerie between. The time has come to mix up your top drawer repertoire. We told the world about your favorite bras and now it’s time to discuss the nether regions. Enough with the slingshot thong, the butt floss, the visible panty line and the dreaded whale tail. We asked: what is your favorite underwear? Here are the solutions you recommended for the ultimate in comfort to sexy.
Cosabella makes our hands-down favorite mesh underwear. It’s light and comfortable, well-cut, and often seamless.
|Soire Mesh Thong|
The mesh thong is like wearing nothing at all, according to readers: “Bar none the most comfortable. Fit, feeling, total invisibility – there’s nothing about it that should be corrected.”
|Soire Mesh Boy Short|
The boy short comes in an array of fun colors, and can be worn as undies or to sleep in with a tee on top.
|Devon Low-Rise Bikini|
This bikini goes low enough for even the most daring of low-cut jeans and hipster pants.
For pretty, lacy underwear, look no farther than Hanky Panky. Whether it’s boy-cut or a thong, this brand is sweet and sexy.
|Original Signature Lace Thong $18|
SheFinds readers love this thong: “I’m not really a thong girl, but this thong changed my mind. The waistband doesn’t cut into you at all and it’s so soft you don’t even feel it.”
|Low-Rise Signature Lace Thong $18|
The low-rise version of the Original thong works best for women who wear smaller sizes – and is just as comfortable.
|Signature Lace Boyshorts $29|
When you want a little more coverage, reach for the company’s boy shorts, which don’t pinch in weird places.
GapBody makes some of the best basic underwear we’ve ever tried. Their prices are just right and the array of cuts, colors, and fabrics can’t be beat.
|Ultra Low Stretch Cotton Teeny Bikini|
The cotton bikinis are inexpensive enough to buy in bulk and machine wash.
|Ultra Low Lacy Dotted Thong|
Readers say these lace thongs are “practically like going commando.”
|Ultra Low Lacy Dotted Girl Short|
These shorts fit like a sexy, curve-hugging second skin.
In mesh or cotton, these solid-colored, basic panties by OnGossamer fit well and are never bulky.
|Mesh Hip G|
“OnGossamer’s Mesh Thong is the perfect, comfortable panty for the thong novice,” one reader says.
|Mesh Hip Bikini |
A classic bikini cut made using OnGossamer’s stellar mesh.
The light mesh fabric of these boy shorts doesn’t feel bulky under pants.
