There's no reason to fill your dresser drawer with a pile of plain white cotton briefs. Sure, they're functional and comfortable, but they sure don't make you feel sexy. No matter what size you are, you can find a pretty, feminine, sexy or elegant panty that's as comfortable and functional as it is visually appealing—the key is to find the right fabric and the proper cut to ensure the panty lies gently against your skin and keeps you comfortable all day long. Start with the right foundation, and you'll be able to wear any outfit with confidence.
Fits that Flatter
If you favor function over fashion in plus-size panties, a simple brief may be just what you're looking for. A thin material will keep you cool and comfortable, and a high-cut leg will give you more length than a boy short or full-brief style. While you may think more coverage is appropriate for everyday wear, keep in mind that panty lines can affect your polished look. The solution is a seamless plus-size panty style that's cut from a thin microfiber material which stretches easily and sits flat against your skin. Another way to eliminate panty lines is with plus-size thongs, which can be as comfortable as they are sexy, as long as you wear the correct size.
One of the most popular choices for women's plus-size panties is the Hanky Panky brand, which makes a stretch lace panty that won't cut into your waist, won't ride up and will extend to fit an incredible range of sizes. OnGossamer is another popular brand that carries several brief, thong and boy-short styles in comfortable thin cotton and mesh fabrics. For more coverage, look to the Bali, Barely There and Flexees brands; Flexees also offers good quality plus size shapewear to support and smooth your hips and butt.
The way your plus-size underwear sits beneath your outfit is very important to its overall effect. While a thong contains less material, it won't necessarily be invisible; in fact, the best way to reduce panty lines is to wear a full-coverage seamless panty. And although many brands come in a host of fun and fashionable colors, beware of vivid hues under lighter outfits. White panties may seem like a natural choice for a white dress or pants, but they will show right through—a nude shade is your best bet for translucent fabrics, light grays, beiges or whites.
