Ladies Briefs - How To Look Sensational

Ladies Briefs - There's something undeniably calming about briefs - soft, comfortable and perfect for everyday wear, they're the effortless panty that you don't have to think about - slip them on and you're good to go.

While briefs (or full panties) of the past had a reputation as frumpy or old fashioned - they were often called granny panties - today's styles are quite different.

Flattering and on-trend, modern briefs are available in a wonderful range of options for almost every want and need - including classic, high-cut (or French cut), bikini and boxer briefs.

With a covered waistband that rests at or below the belly button, full hip and rear coverage, these popular undies are designed for maximum comfort and easy movement.

Here, we share the essentials. From fabrics to color, mix and match to glam, everything you need to know to go beyond the garden variety basics and turn your regular rotation of ladies briefs into something simply special.

Ladies Briefs - Add A Bold New Color

A plain pair of panties gets an instant update when you pick a pair in a fun shade that you don't usually wear.

Think outside the box and try a crisp coral, minty turquoise, deep plum, or play with leopard prints, polka dots, or fresh florals.

As soon as you cast aside the traditional basic shades of black, white, and nude from your drawer and reach for a pair of briefs in a vibrant and exciting new color, you’ve successfully taken your lingerie game to the next level.

Carmen's Tip

While some may think briefs are too old fashioned, thanks to new and innovative fabrics such as microfiber, bamboo and spandex, briefs can be just as sleek and fashion forward as other hip and trendy panty styles.

Fancy Up The Undie Fabric

A few simple swaps from everyday basic to beautiful can make all the difference in how special and luxurious your underwear can be.

Even your everyday undies can get a welcome dose of glamour and luxury when you opt for a pair in a fancier fabric.  How?  Think -

  • Lace panties instead of microfiber
  • Silky satin instead of cotton panties
  • Other great choices are mesh, silk charmeuse, or sheer nylon panties

The result? A plain pair of panties gets a much needed makeover simply by buying briefs in more luxe and ladylike fabrics.

Pay Attention To Pairing Ladies Briefs

Even the prettiest of briefs will look boring if you throw them on with an oversized t-shirt or the same basic go-to bra that you always wear.

Instead, try pairing your panties with something prettier on top, like a statement bustier, a lace bralette, or a silk camisole.

Don’t worry about whether your bra and panties come from a matching set or not. What matters is that you kick up your everyday basics a notch by wearing them with special favorites from your lingerie drawer, making them feel like an indulgence to wear.

One of the most popular promotions that runs at certain times throughout the year includes a "buy two panties, get one free" option - a great way to stock up on your favorites.

How To Care For Womens Panties

No matter how high-end your panties may be, they’ll look ho-hum and bland if you don’t take proper care of them. Nothing is worse than ratty looking undergarments, and briefs are no exception.

Take a few extra moments to care for beautiful lingerie properly - undies included - and they’ll look so much more sensational and posh.

Hand wash them or use your machine’s delicate cycle to wash your bras and panties in a mesh bag. Use a mild soap - baby shampoo works in a pinch. Or, treat yourself to a special detergent made just for intimate apparel.

Your briefs will last so much longer and look so much better if you treat them with the care they deserve - a little TLC goes a long way in keeping your briefs looking brand new.

Go Glam  From Head To Toe 

Take your panties up a level when you wear them in the prettiest way possible. Looking beautiful goes beyond buying high end panties or mixing and matching them with designer bras.

Pamper yourself from top to bottom and you’ll feel an instant boost. Make sure you’re properly groomed - your skin is silky soft, your hair is beautifully styled, and you’ve paid extra attention to your makeup.

Looking and feeling gorgeous is a great way to boost your confidence and take your exciting new look to a whole new level of beauty and elegance.

Stores and online shopping often offer multi-packs that allow you to mix and match ladies briefs which gives you more choices and greater flexibility.
