Your fashion statement starts here
Great wardrobes start with great…ahem…unmentionables!
While it may be true that few people see them, the right pair of knickers can kickstart your outfit and give you an extra confidence boost to wear that tight skirt or fitted pair of trousers.
The World of Underwear
When it comes to underwear, men have it easy. Mens underwear is one of three things: tighty-whitey, baggy boxers or the middle ground, boxer briefs. And basically, with any man’s wardrobe, any of the three will do for any outfit.
But when choosing womens underwear, even the slightest seam can ruin a hot look and the wrong fabric can make for an uncomfortable evening. That’s why we have every underwear option under the sun - from sexy underwear, like French-cut silk panties with a hint of lace, to those tried and true full-size briefs perfect for days when you’re feeling less than your best.
How to Choose Your Underoos
No matter what the trend, your underwear style comes down to what feels best on. If you’re uncomfortable with less coverage but don’t want to feel like your granny, bikini underwear and boy-cuts cover a lot of territory and come in cute styles and colors that make them just as attractive as more daring varieties.
For bolder gals, it’s all about the thong (see below). But even the most adventurous girl doesn’t want her sexy panties feeling uncomfortable. When choosing any underwear, be sure to look for soft fabrics and avoid elastic bands that bite.
Sometimes it doesn’t matter how cute the panties are, comfort always wins out – and hey, if it’s 40 below outside and you want to hop into your waffle-knit thermal underwear, go for it! But keep in mind that sometimes the best way to feel sexy on the outside is to dress for it underneath.

Think you’re limited to white panties when you choose this style? Think again! Cotton underwear is available in nearly any color and patterns that let you make whatever statement you like. From bold geometrics to sassy embroidered phrases like “Proceed with Caution,” the options offered are nearly endless. And, if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, many companies allow you to customize their basic cotton panties, so your underwear can make a statement that’s true to you. So don’t be afraid to step beyond your basic whites – while still keeping the comfort of cotton!

Ladies, don’t fear the thong! Many women feel intimidated to even try this more risqué underwear style, but rest assured, womens thong underwear comes in enough cuts and fabrics to please even the most modest gals. String thongs and micro thongs (which, let’s face it, are virtually non-existent) are great for a sexy encounter, but if you want to try hot thongs with a little more coverage and comfort opt for bikini thongs in soft fabrics like cotton. Or, try silk thongs, which combine a sexy look with a soft feel against the skin.
Keep in mind, there are a few thong rules that should be adhered to before you buy. First and foremost, exposed thongs are a huge fashion don’t. Sexy thongs are great but the whole world shouldn’t have to see them. Second, stay away from any fabric or adornment that will chafe, scratch or otherwise irritate the downstairs area. Unless you’re planning on wearing your thong only briefly, it’s best to opt for comfort over sex appeal.
