Bikini

Bikini

Bikini style of panty offers more coverage than a thong, but not as much as a pair of hipsters. As it sits on or below your waist, it allows you to wear those chic low-rise pants with ease. With a wide range of colours to choose from, you can always find one which matches your outfit.

Hipster

A hipster panty gives almost the same back coverage offered by full briefs, with the comfort of boyshorts and the low waistline of bikinis, creating an innerwear which is ideal for daily wear.

Thong

Thong

Boyshorts

Boyshorts

This style of panties offers full coverage to your hips and sides and your upper thighs as well. It may also offer a certain degree of shaping to your figure. Boyshorts are great for everyday use, and can be worn under a skirt, if you are someone who likes to be extra careful.

Brazilian

Brazilian Panty

A Brazilian panty sits on or below the waistline and offers lesser coverage than a bikini panty, but more than a thong. It is a good choice for women who want less coverage at the back, but don’t want to wear a thong.

Full Brief Panty

This panty offers the highest coverage, extending up to the back and a waistline that usually sits above the belly button. Considering the amount of coverage, it can offer mild shaping benefits to your tummy and sides.
