    Love that you point out a girl should own different types of undies! I totally agree. Too many girls don’t realize different clothes require different undies.

    @ Melisa: Why do you care what Cosmo says? If you like your thongs, wear them! It’s not like everybody knows what you’re wearing under your pants/skirt/dress. Wear what’s comfortable to you and makes you feel good.

    I’ve gotta say, I love my Victoria Secret bikini panties. I’ve had them for about 7-8 months and they still fit the same as when I got them, no stretching or breaking elastic like I got with the packs of underwear I used to buy. They are totally worth the $8 a pair, but they go on sale often (usually $25 for 5, but you have to buy in multiples of five).

    If you haven’t already you should check out Aerie’s panties. Their boybriefs and bikinis are so comfy and great quality that I’ve had some of them for over 2 years. Love that store!

    My favorite style of undies is the boy short because they provide the wearer with a lot of coverage while still coming in cute options. The only ones out of the types you featured that I own are boy shorts and the low rise bikini because I’m still in high school and I think that thongs are uncomfortable and trashy. You did an awesome job on this post because you featured pretty much all the styles of undies that are popular right now.

    I totally agree with everything on this list! I work at Victoria’s Secret on college breaks and every time I go back I stock up on more cute and comfy undies! I never used to like thongs (I thought they were kinda skanky when I was in high school) but I started wearing them when I was at work so I wouldn’t have lines and I love them now! Who cares if Cosmo says they’re on the way out, I feel so much sexier and more confident when I go out if I’m wearing something super cute and lacy :)

    “Cosmo says that thong is out… do you guys agree?”

    Yes, I do. Well, I hope. I rarely wear thongs. They aren’t all that comfortable for me. I generally only wear them if I have a pair of pants that would show even a boyshort panty line.
    I’m a low-rise bikini type of girl. :)

    I completely agree with your list! I am wondering how you all feel about matching bras and panties. Even though I work at VS I am not big on buying matching sets. I feel like I put all this effort into matching and my guy doesn’t really care. Opinions?

    Jennifer- At VS, you only need to buy at least 5 to get the 5 for $25 deal. Any pair after 5 will also be $5. Unfortunately, the same thing does not go for the 3 for $30 panties.

    Love the article! Although I don’t wear all these types of underwear (I’m a thong girl), I apreciate the variety.
    For those of you who think thongs are uncomfortable, a strange thing happened to me: I started wearing them because it looked better with most of my outfits, and after getting used to it, I can’t wear anything else! I feel uncomfortable in bikini types, although I wear boy shorts to bed (I don’t like walking around in a thong, that definitely it’s to much). And I don’t think they’re trashy at all; they are hot, maybe too hot for a high school girls, but definitely great for college and older.

    I also love, love, love underwear! I’ve never bought Hanky-Panky underwear, but the underwear that I have that has a lace waist band is straight up the most comfortable pairs I own.

    lalalina- I never knew that about the 5 or $25, good thing to know for the next time I feel like buying underwear.

    I love boyshorts but they always give me wedgies! Does anyone else have this problem? I usually stick to hipsters.

    Sarah – Persevere and you will succeed! hahah, thongs rock (and if Cosmo says they’re out, they better ask the guys their opinion).

    I’m a lingerie junky, but I don’t live in the US, so I can’t get any of the brands you talk about! I went to VS last time I was in NY, but it is ridiculously expensive for me (a dollar equals 4 argentinian pesos, you do the maths); I better use that money to buy the highest priced brand or double number of panties from a regular brand at home.

    There’s something you didn’t mention: I don’t know about the US, but here lots of panties (from cheap to expensive) are not made out of cotton but out of lycra or symilar fibers. Though artificial fibers may look shiney and hot (sheer underwear, for example) I think you should leave those type of undies for “hot environments” (where they won’t be worn long). In your underwear, you need fabrics that let your body breath, right? (I don’t mean to be gross, it’s just plain reality).

    i love love love this article
    im a lingerie collector…..i have every thing on ur list except the nude tone coz i always prefer colours, prints, laces(better start looking for nudes now)
    and i always match the top with the bottom(been watching too many victoria secret fashion shows)
    but yeah i hear the thong is out and boyshorts are the new thongs
    thongs are fine for dresses or pants that cling to ur butt but no whale tales!!!!
    but even a nice fitting pair of boyshorts can do that.

    thisizkim-boyshots can giv u wedgies if they are not the right fit for u(but also a lot of movement can make that happen too)

    I love lace trimmed bikini cut undies, my favorite pair are ivory and black stripes with ivory lace edging and a cute little ribbon bow at the front. I always feel so girly and sexy when I wear them. I only wish I had a matching bra :(

    this article is genius! one of my faves :]. whatever i get, i try to get it in cotton, because it’s wayy healthier to your lady parts.

    also, for those who find thongs uncomfortable, try getting a bigger size. i used to think thongs were uncomfortable, but getting a size bigger than i normally wear really made a difference! it’s not slicing your butt anymore.

    Hey girls! I’m glad you’re liking this post! I’m a lingerie addict, so it was super fun to write and even better to read your comments!

    I’m definitely a boy shorts/cheeky girl, they’re super cute and comfy. Although for some outfits thongs are just the way to go. Love you Cosmo, but like Julie said–if thongs are out I don’t wanna be in! I actually think they’re super comfortable and easy, which is always a plus!

    I’m a thong girl, have been for 8 years now. I have terrible luck with other kinds of panties always riding up, and I figure if my panties are going to ride up my ass anyway I’d rather have as little fabric as possible in there. Besides, as long as the thong is just a string and not a wide strap you don’t feel it anyway.

    But I love lingerie, I have a million different pairs of panties and am always on the lookout for more. Great article.

    Love this article! I’m a Gilly Hicks girl myself :) I too, am also a panty connoisseur, although I mainly collect thongs and cheekies. I like to have a huge variety of prints and colors, although I do have plain nudes when I’m wearing a sheer dress or something :}}}}

    Ok I just wanna say that after reading this post I ran off and bought the lacie victoria’s secret thongs ( they’re 3 for $30) and I have to say, I am going to buy more tomorrow! They are by far the most comfortable undies I’ve ever had on me in my life, something I never thought I would say about a thong lol. Thanks

    This dude wants to know what’s so gross about a panty line? I don’t get it, who cares if you can see that? It’s not like your underwear is hanging out of your pants.
