High Rise Panties: A Do Or A Don't?

What: Tease Intimates High Rise Panty, $12

Why: At first High Rise panties made complete sense to me. Waistlines are rising, so our panties should follow suit.

I say made, because when I read the instructions on the box, I was informed that these panties are actually supposed to be worn over your pants – thus the rhinestones and bow detailing on the waistband. So I summoned up all the fake confidence I could muster and gave ‘em a whirl out in public.  Surprisingly, it didn’t look half bad. In fact, the style mimicked the look of wearing a tied belt or an extra layer under a longer shirt. But no matter what it looked like, I couldn’t get past the fact that strangers were seeing my underwear.

I’m not sold on their intended purpose, because no matter how cute the pattern, how sparkly the rhinestones, I doubt I’ll ever start willingly showing off my undies. And the crowd who I imagine will be attracted the novelty – mainly 12 year old girls – should definitely not be strutting around, showing off their bedazzled underthings. That being said, I’m loving them under my hot new high-waisted jeans. Let us know what you think below!
