Briefs, knickers, undies

Last time we talked bras, this time we take a look at briefs.


There are six key design profiles, it’s about finding what’s most comfortable and supportive for you. Go for plain styling if you're wearing fabrics that cling or show-through. A fuller brief can give a nicer line underneath trousers, skirts and dresses, whereas some women prefer the thong to avoid the VPL (visible panty line).


I personally love and always get, matching lingerie - bra and briefs - so I first choose the bra and then hope like anything that the briefs are to my liking and suit me. Most ranges include two styles of briefs to choose from.


Remember to look after your lingerie by washing it on a delicate wash cycle and in a lingerie bag.







A bikini is a comfortable brief that gives you moderate coverage, and a high leg line. Depending on your bikini’s brand and style the waistband can rest high or low on your hips.

A thong is a “barely there” style of brief. It consists of a small garment strip in the front and tapers to a string, resulting in a bare bottom. This enables you to avoid any possibility of the dreaded visible panty line!
