Panty Guide

Bikini Brief:

A bikini brief is a panty that is cut to cover most of your cheeks but is very narrow on the sides, providing a high, flattering leg opening. A string bikini has only thin straps at the sides.


Boy Short:

(Alternatively known as a Hipster)
A boy short provides more coverage than other styles of briefs. It falls at or under the cheek where your tush naturally creases, eliminating most visible panty lines.  Boy shorts can be a great option under pants because they sit close to the body but don’t dig!


Brazilian Brief:

A very cheeky brief style, brazilian briefs flatter your assets by covering very little in the rear. Somewhere between a traditional brief and a thong, the back fabric is v–shaped and lays on top of, not between, the cheeks.



Classic briefs fit close to the body, provide moderate to full rear coverage, and are cut higher on the leg than a boy short (but are not as narrow as a bikini brief). Because they're so comfortable, briefs are the perfect option any time you're not worried about panty lines. They're also great to sleep in - just be sure you have a robe handy!


French Brief:

French briefs are a flirty, abbreviated relative of the boy short.  The wide sides of a french brief wrap smoothly around the hips to the back, where a very minimal cut exposes the bottom of your cheeks! Usually very low cut, these mini briefs are a hit with guys and girls alike.



A g–string is even skimpier than a thong. The front is usually very small and triangular in shape. The back has just a string that goes between the cheeks. Designers often decorate the top back of the g-string with a bow or some other small detail.



“Peekaboo” is a very nice way of saying that a pair of panties has a split front and is, in essence, crotchless.  A pair of  peekaboo panties can resemble a brief, thong, or even boy shorts. Though they may seem impractical, peekaboo underwear are a big hit with men (and usually a big surprise for them, too)!


Tap Pants:

A sexy, loose short that grazes the body.  Tap pants are often made from very delicate, feminine fabrics like lace and silk. Perfect for wearing under a swingy skirt or dress, tap pants will make your legs look amazing when worn with a classic pair of high heels.



Thongs look like most other panties from the front but have a thin piece of fabric at the back that lies between the cheeks. Wearing a thong is not about coverage, it's about preventing panty lines while looking and feeling sexy! A thong that fits properly will be comfortable enough for all day wear.
