They come in all different shapes and sizes.
To look and feel your best in an outfit, it’s important to find the right style for you – and this, ultimately, comes down to your personal preferences. But to help you select the perfect pair, here we take a look at the top four women’s underwear styles currently available at Tokyo Laundry.
A brief guide to women’s underwear
This is the most classic type of ladies underwear.
They’re designed to offer the perfect balance of style and comfort. And as such, typically have a traditional ‘knicker’ shape and benefit from both an elasticated mid-rise waistband and generous coverage of your bum. Some briefs are also seam-free, which means they create no visible panty line (VPL) and can be thrown on with just about any outfit.
As part of our women’s underwear range, you’ll find an extensive range of classic briefs to choose from – with colours and patterns to suit all tastes. These are all crafted from stretch cotton-rich jersey, to create a close body-hugging fit, and are finished with iconic brand lettering to the woven waistband. A reliable no-nonsense design for day-to-day wear.
2. Hipster briefs
Hipster briefs are another popular type of women’s underwear. They’re very similar to classic briefs, sitting comfortably across your hips and waist and providing a high level of coverage. However, they tend to be low-rise and have a sporty ‘boyshort’ shape.
Here at Tokyo Laundry, we typically stock ladies hipster briefs in a variety of cute colourways. And each pair is cut from a super-soft cotton blend with a stretchy woven waistband, making them a welcome addition to your everyday knicker collection.
3. Boxer briefs
Also known as boyleg knickers or boyshorts.
Boxer briefs are an increasingly popular option in the world of women’s underwear, and it’s easy to understand why. Designed to mimic the shape of men’s boxer shorts, they have a low straight cut on the leg – creating maximum coverage – and are super comfy. In fact, we believe they’re the most comfortable type of knickers a girl can buy, without having to compromise on style!
Again, our collection is bursting at the seams with this particular design and there’s plenty of adorable colours and patterns for you to choose from. If you’re unsure of the best knickers for your body shape, boxer briefs are a failsafe and stylish option.
Once reserved for special occasions, thongs are now a staple in every women’s knicker drawer. Why? Because although they provide the least amount of coverage – with a high leg and thong back – they minimise the appearance of panty lines and help to smooth your silhouette. And as a result, they’re the perfect option for under form-fitting bodycon outfits.
All thongs available in our store are made from cotton-rich jersey, with either a wide woven or a slim no VPL waistband. Therefore, despite their signature thong-shape, they’re still very comfortable – and will help to accentuate your feminine figure.
