Let's Talk Pants


Written on 06 October 2014

Nobody can claim that there isn't a great choice of underwear and lingerie available when you can choose from a high waisted, long legged control brief all the way through to a teeny tiny string. 

High waisted briefs, invariable with support, will help with shaping around the midrift and give a more streamline figure. Not something you'll get from a thong!

Contouring Sensation is a great choice. Support wear is an ideal choice for special occassions but not necessarily what you want to wear everyday. Girdles will also offer fabulous shaping and often provide firm control. We'd favour the new I Can't Believe It's A Girdle range from Playtex

More suitable everyday underwear would be covered by the following choice of knicker styles.

Starting with maxi briefs like Sloggi Basic Maxi, this apple-catching style sits lower on the top of the leg and higher up in the body, levelish with the belly button (body shape dependent).
Named aptly, they give maxiumum coverage and are still highly popular amongst ladies.

Midi briefs, Sloggi Invisible Supreme or Playtex Flower Lace, as shown,  will provide a similar lower cut shape to the leg but not such a high rise. Minis, like Travel Trio, will be even shorter in the body.

Tai styled briefs can also be referred to as high-leg knickers or a hikini. Want underwear in a glamourous style? Then choose something from this lovely Triumph lingerie range.
These are perfect for the woman who prefers a higher cut leg but doesn't want to compromise on the rise of the brief.

If the tai style isn't for you and you want less depth in your underwear but still require a high cut leg then a bikini brief is the way to go. 

 Sloggi Myday HipsterYou may feel the need for less bottom coverage in which  case  hipsters  like Sloggi Myday, a cotton rich range, or a brazilian underwear style like the lovely Gossard Animal Brazilian Brief would make an ideal choice. Slung much lower in the body and without the depth of fabric covering the cheeks these are very popular particularly under jeans and trousers to minimise VPL.

Then there's the string or thong for the more adventurous amongst us.

If you like some coverage on your legs then boyshorts and shorts are your thing. We love the Ultimo Miracle Seamless briefs as they are ultra smooth under clothes.

If you want more coverage then opt for a long brief which will cover your thighs. Sloggi Basic Long are our number one choice. 
These are perfect whatever your size particularly to stop any inner thigh rub and also perfect under jeans and trousers for a panty line free look around the upper leg and bottom.
