In the interest of full fashion disclosure, I have something to confess: I am hopelessly and shamelessly addicted to Victoria's Secret VS Cotton panties – to the point where my friends have to distract me whenever I'm within a three block radius of a Vickie's. I can say without a hint of hyperbole that I have enough pairs of their comfy cotton knickers to last me through five laundry cycles, but I still can't pass the store without stopping in for a pair or five to expand my ever-growing collection. Sure, they're not the fanciest panties in the world — they're not even close, when you consider all the gorgeous, delicate, frilly, flimsy, sexy options there are out there — but you can't beat them for durability, fit, and variety. There are currently 11 different cuts, including the classic bikini (my personal poison), four cuts of thongs, a playful boyshort, the new "Girl Boxer," and high cut briefs that are perfect for those not-feeling-so-skinny days. Opt for classic black, white, or nude, and throw in a few pairs of the fun seasonal patterns to mix things up (because having a hundred pairs of the same underwear is outrageous but having a hundred pairs of the same white underwear is certifiable).
These certainly aren't weekend-away panties, but you won't experience Bridget Jones-level embarrassment should someone else happen to spy these skivvies. For everyday, they're the best, and they're perpetually a great bargain at five pairs for $25. Stock up on these guilty pleasure classics at Victoria'sSecret.com, and let us know what you have an embarrassingly huge stash of in the comments section.
