What knickers do you wear?

Couldn't think of a less blunt title so I apologise for that, I went shopping for some new underwear and the number of different styles amazed me, it made me wonder what is most popular or most commonly worn.
Me personally I've always gone with a BoyShort because I find them most comfortable and any styles that sit directly on the bikini line usually cause me a rash so I avoid them.

What do other women mostly wear?

Apparently I wear tangas? I’ve always called them thongs 😂

Tangas or bikinis / hipsters

@Checkingout811 Tangas are like a thong bit less like dental floss going up your arse 😂

'But' less not bit 🙄

I would wear any of them apart from the bottom row. Can't stand a hungry bum grin

Bikinis or boyshorts

Mostly control or classic these daysgrin

For years Ive worn the shorts style. Recently bought some that can only be described as big pants and it's a revelation. Classic briefs in your picture. They are so comfortable. I plan to throw out my entire knicker drawer and replace them.

Used to wear Brazilian, but in wide in the hips and small in the waist so I actually find high cut more flattering now

Classic high waisted briefs to cover the full belly and fat arse. So comfie and being classy I go for 4 for £5 from Tesco. They wash and wear really well.

Full briefs or the classic briefs for me.

Control briefs form since I had an operation and used them to try and reduce the chance of a hernia. They have worn out yet!

PaperMonster Thu 06-May-21 16:44:44

High cut briefs or tangas for me.

inmyslippers Thu 06-May-21 16:46:40

Classics wish I could say otherwise 🤣

Tangas in microfibre because I find them much more comfy. Big pants (no matter what shape, or how many sizes up I go) just end up scrunched up in my bum crack. At least with a tanga or thong it's just a tiny strip of material so not uncomfortable. I wore them even when I was pregnant. It's absolutely not to look sexy but totally for comfort reasons. I wear soft crop tops instead of proper bras for the same reason. I can't tolerate uncomfortable underwear any more.

Bikinis with thongs for certain outfits.
I hate VPL.

QueenPaw Thu 06-May-21 16:48:42

High cut high waist briefs

You do not appear to have apple catchers on your list.

I'm assuming tanga is Brazilian..... I went to them from thongs a few years back.

idontlikealdi Thu 06-May-21 17:01:16

Brazilian. Not on your list.

Bikinis (M&S).
I have occasional brought other brands, but revert to M&S.
I've probably been wearing them for 30+ years.

Sarahlou63 Thu 06-May-21 17:07:11

Nothing. Ever. Unless I'm going to the doctor or leg wax then I have an emergency pair of granny pants.

GString or thong.
