Underpants fads come and go.
Thankfully, the era of the thong has passed and the age of granny panties has begun.
Over the past few years, more women have opted to forgo super lacy, skimpy panties and thongs for comfortable, ass-covering underpants. And thankfully, modern full coverage underwear doesn’t look or feel bland. We’ve rounded up 5 pairs of cute granny panties — or what we’re calling sensibly sexy panties — that provide comfort and sex appeal.
1. Astra Hi-Waist Brief
If you’re looking for a pair of briefs that exude pizazz, consider getting this scarlet underwear from Botanica Workshop. The brand is dedicated to creating underthings made from organic and sustainable materials.
This comfortable pair of underwear is made of organic cotton jersey and cotton elastic. The red, high-waisted panties are accentuated with a light pink, petal hue. In addition to being full coverage, these panties also are form-fitting and will conform to your body’s shape after a few wears. Priced at $65.
2. Silverlake Short 2
If you dig underpants that have an androgynous vibe, check out this pair of no-frills briefs from Sloane & Tate. The company makes panties for women’s bodies and curves.
The Silverlake Short looks like menswear. However, the underpants are crafted to fit a woman’s body. And these underpants are made of super-soft fabrics — ultra lightweight Supima cotton and Modal. This pair of shorts is breathable, made of sustainably-sourced materials, and provides full coverage. Priced at $36.
3. Sundae High-Waist Panty
If seduction is on your mind, consider getting a pair of sheer, polka dot briefs from Dottie’s Delights. The lingerie company makes made-to-order, handmade, feminine designs.
This pair of panties comes in a soft pink hue that looks and feels delicate but provides full coverage and support. And this pair is made all the more sexy because of its soft plush scalloped elastic leg and tummy lining. In addition, the 100 percent nylon panties also feature a 100 percent cotton gusset lining. Priced at $50.
4. High-Waisted Brief
This pair of underpants from Nude, an ethical underwear company based in Spain, is perfect for lounging around all day on the couch. The underwear provides full coverage and is free of lines that could cause ripples under clothing. The panty’s edges feature flat elastic trim. Priced at $27.16.
5. Edith Knickers
And Bluestockings Boutique, a lingerie company that believes in ethical manufacturing, LGBTQIA+ inclusivity, and sustainability. The business rose the bar on stylish underwear when it created these velvet underpants. This pair of full coverage black velvet panties are made in San Francisco. Priced at $33.
