5 Different Types Of Underwear That Every Woman Should Own

March 28, 2018 by Jihan Forbes

You wouldn’t wear high heels on a hike or rock sneakers to a ball, would you? We didn’t think so. Women have all different styles of shoes for different occasions, so why wouldn’t the same line of thinking apply to underwear, as well?

A woman’s top dresser drawer is usually bursting open with a bunch of different styles of underwear–from thongs to cheeky, to boyshorts and briefs. Our intimates choice depends on our desire for style, comfort, and practicality. Your sexiest thong is not the best underwear option for working out, just like our women’s briefs are not acceptable for underneath tight dresses.

Whatever the reason is behind a woman’s intimate choice, you can be sure that when she picks out a pair of panties for the day, she has certain plans and expectations. With that in mind, these are the 7 different pairs of underwear styles that every woman should have in her wardrobe. They all serve a purpose!

1. Thongs

Hanky Panky Print Original Rise Thong ($25)

Usually, thongs are not the most comfortable underwear style on the market, but they’re definitely one of the most popular. When a woman wants to look sexy or needs to eliminate underwear lines for under tight dresses, skinny jeans, or leggings, she chooses a thong. Thongs come in a variety of different styles, fabrics, and colors–from workout thongs to wear under your athletic attire, to pretty lace ones to show off in the bedroom.

2. Body-Shaping

Spanx Oncore High Waist Mid Thigh Shaper ($72)

When a woman breaks out her control-top underwear briefs, it’s usually for an important event. Whether it be a big night out in a tight, form-fitting dress, or a fun date where you want to squeeze into your favorite pair of skinny jeans. Body-shaping underwear helps you fit into your snug clothing, while looking and feel your best. Hello, instantly flat tummy!

3. Lounging Boxers

Hanes Cool Comfort™ Women’s Cotton Sporty Boy Brief Panties ($10.25)

For those who consider themselves members of the no pants at home club, in every underwear drawer are a couple pairs of good ‘old fashioned at-home chillin’ undies. Nothing is more comfortable than relaxing after a long day in an oversized t-shirt and your favorite pair of soft panties. These undies are also optimal for sleeping, if you despise wearing pajama shorts as much as I do.

4. Spandex

Calvin Klein ‘Invisibles’ Hipster Briefs ($13)

Spandex underwear, whether they’re cheeky or thong style, work amazingly underneath gym attire or other tight clothing. Spandex athleisure leggings or shorts show everything–including panty lines. Seamless undies solve this problem, and are comfortable and practical.

5. Semi-Formal Panties

Hanky Panky Open Gusset Panties ($36)

For those days when you want to be more comfortable than wearing a thong but still want to look cute, semi-formal undies work great. Cheeky or full-coverage underwear don’t have to look like granny panties. Plenty of retailers make adorable underwear in comfortable styles.
