Boob & Bra FAQ

Underwear Styles For Every Shape

We give bras the majority of our attention here on the blog, as we should, but we don’t want to forget the second love of our lives, knickers! Just like bras, there are plenty of underwear styles out there to match and we’re going to help you suss out each style and what works best for you!

Briefs come in all shapes and sizes – a bit like us. The standard briefs you see paired with almost all bras are usually a midi fit and suit everyone. Thrown on day to day, they’re a good one for comfort and are generally an all-rounder in terms of fit and coverage.

Panache Jasmine Brief Black

Freya Popart Brief Black Floral

One of our favourites is the high waisted brief. This style generally comes up higher on the body, sitting just on your belly button. It was much loved in the 1950’s and having made a serious comeback over the years, this one looks like it’s here to stay. It’s flattering on all shapes, but it’s particularly great for minimising the tummy.

Scantilly By Curvy Kate Unleash High Waist Brief Black

If you’re looking to spice up your collection, the Brazilian brief is a good place to start. They sit lower on the hips and have a cheeky back that although larger than a thong, is still smaller then a brief. Framing your rear, it’s such a flattering style if you really want to show off more. If you’re not a fan of thongs, this will still help with the dreaded VPL and look particularly great if you’re all about the bum, hips and thighs!

Freya Pandora Brazilian Brief Black

We can’t write about thongs without having Sisqo’s 90’s hit playing in our heads, are we right?! A thong is completely open at the back, coming in both low and high rise styles. If you want an underwear type that’s undetectable under clothing, this one’s for you.

Gossard Glossies Thong Blue

 Who doesn’t love wearing a pair of comfy shorts? And who wouldn’t want to mirror this comfort every day? Like a brief, there are a few variations. Cute shorties are a little less covering if you want all the comfort but not the coverage. A hipster short does what it says and sits on your hips for a lower look that’s great for low rise jeans or trousers and it still covers the entirety of your bum.

Wonderbra Refined Glamour Short Pink

Party season is creeping up on us fast, so we’re instantly thinking about shapewear. We’re a big lover of the Curvy Kate Smoothie shaper pants – thanks Bridget Jones for making big pants cool again! It’s not about altering your body shape; it’s about making you feel great whatever the occasion, so never be scared to try a pair. Shapewear underwear, like the ones from Curvy Kate are completely seamless under clothing, so you’ll be the only one who’ll know you’ve got them on. Not just for the tummy, if you opt for a shaper short it’ll smooth your bum and thighs too!

Wearing whatever you feel comfortable in is the aim of the game here. No doubt you all have underwear styles you prefer to wear during the day and other pairs you save for the evening or bedroom, but never be afraid to switch it up! (Check out our Scantilly post here about how to turn boudoir lingerie into everyday wear) We hope we’ve helped shed some light on the different knickers out there, and how best to wear them if you want to try something new or just freshen up your collection. Whatever you wear, rock it with confidence all year round!
