Cosabella

Cosabella makes our hands-down favorite mesh underwear. It’s light and comfortable, well-cut, and often seamless.

Soire Mesh Thong

$16

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

$22

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

$40

This bikini goes low enough for even the most daring of low-cut jeans and hipster pants.

Hanky Panky

For pretty, lacy underwear, look no farther than Hanky Panky. Whether it’s boy-cut or a thong, this brand is sweet and sexy.

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

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.
