How many of you have had panty lines showing through your dress when you were looking absolutely flawless? I can imagine a million hands going up right now because almost all of us have had that awkward experience sometime or the other. This is because most of us go for the basic undies when buying lingerie. We choose our bras according to the outfit we wear, right? Then why don’t we do the same with our underwear?

Just as a strapless bra is essential when you’re wearing your cute, summer tube dress, a seamless underwear is important when you’re wearing that pencil skirt as well. Here’s a guide to all the types of different underwear and what you should pair them with: 

1. Boy Shorts

Inspired by men’s boxers, boy shorts are super-comfortable. They are very functional and you can wear them with your skirts, as well as your flared dresses. 

2. Classic Briefs

These are your regular underwear. The ones you buy in a pack of three or five. You can pair them with mostly anything as long as your outfit is not body-hugging because that would put your panty lines on display. 

3. Hipsters

These are low-rise and have a wide coverage on the sides. They go with almost everything. So make sure you have more than just a couple of them. 

4. Thongs

Nothing says sexy like thongs do. But more than that, they’re the perfect underwear type to wear with outfits where otherwise, the bump of your panty line can ruin the outfit. 

5. French-Cut Panties

Also known as high-cut panties, these are very 80s in their style. They have a high cut on the leg holes, which makes them better for circulation from the regular ones. They go superbly well with high-waist jeans. 

6. G-String

They’re very similar to thongs, but these have absolutely no coverage. They’re meant for times when you would like to go commando, but then you would also like some sort of coverage. A little getting used to is required to be perfectly comfortable with this type. 

7. Control Briefs

These are super comfortable and all about functionality. They come with a tight elastic waist band to keep your paunch in. 

8. Seamless

This is one type that we should have more of. Unlike other types of underwear, they don’t have stitches on them. Hence, making them perfect for every dress.  

9. Brazilian Briefs

They have the qualities of both a hipster and a thong. And they are just what you need when you’re vacationing on the beach.

This calls for some lingerie shopping for sure.
