As the name suggests, this style is cut like a bikini bathing suit bottom. Bikinis are similar to briefs but usually have a waistband that sits around the hip area with less rear coverage. Bikinis are the most popular panty style among women. This cut also includes string bikinis with a very thin side waistband and can come in a variety of fabrics like cotton, mesh, silk, spandex, and polyester.
Boy shorts are modeled after men’s briefs. While boyshorts can have a low or moderate rise, the style has coverage around the legs with fabric extending below the crotch line.
Hipsters are similar to briefs and bikinis but have a more square rear cut and hit around your hips. The side coverage is greater than the bikini cut combining a low cut style with modest coverage. This style is great under low rise jeans and is available in seamless styles to eliminate visible panty lines.
The classic brief silhouette is fit for every woman and body type. Low, moderate, and high rises combine with a range of fabrics and leg cuts. High cut briefs are derived from the French style with a higher waist and larger leg hole opening with thinner side coverage. Classic cuts provide the most coverage around the waist and thighs.
