Cheeky Underwear

Types of Underwear Styles For Women

Not to be dramatic, but your underwear is probably one the most important items in your wardrobe. The foundation of every outfit, the right pair can boost your confidence, and your comfort. But one style doesn’t always fit every occasion. 

Whether you love the freedom of a thong or the full coverage of a high brief, here’s a breakdown of the seven different underwear styles you need in your top drawer—and what outfits they’re best for.

1. Thongs

Best for: Underneath tight dresses and fitted pants.

Don’t want your underwear to show? You probably already know you should reach for a thong. With zero coverage on your butt and minimal coverage on your hips, a thong provides a seamless and VPL-free look. 

2. Bikinis

Best for: Jeans, skirts, dresses, you name it!

Like your favorite bikini swimsuit, bikini-cut underwear typically has a lower rise on the hip and a higher cut on the legs, while still offering plenty of coverage on your backside. One of the most popular underwear styles, bikinis pair well with nearly every outfit. 

3. Cheekies 

Best for: Whenever you’re feeling cheeky! 

Cheeky underwear offer more coverage than a thong, but less than a bikini, revealing a little more of your…cheeks. More flirty and playful than your typical bikini cut, cheekies are still a great everyday option.

4. Hipsters

Best for: Low rise bottoms. 

Halfway between a boyshort and a bikini, hipsters have a bit more coverage on the leg-line than a bikini cut, but still sit a few inches below your natural waistline. If you love wearing low rise pants and jeans, hipsters are pretty perfect, minimizing the risk of accidentally exposing your underwear.

5. High Briefs

Best for: High waisted bottoms or any time you want to feel more secure. 

Designed for full coverage with slimming lines, high briefs are great when you want a little added support or an extra comfortable barrier between you and your high waisted pants. Sure, some may refer to these as “granny panties,” but we’ve been seeing (and making) this high coverage cut in tons of modern colors and fabrics.

6. Mid-Rise

Best for: Mid-rise pants and skirts. 

With more coverage than a hipster, but less than a high brief, mid-rise bottoms barely graze your navel for a comfortable, mid-coverage fit. Designed for daily wear, this style works especially well under mid-rise pants.  

7. Boyshorts

Best for: Loungewear and flashing-prone outfits.

For a full coverage brief that’s between a base layer and loungewear, the boyshort is a versatile piece that can function as well under clothing as it can on its own. Perfect for a night in, or as an insurance policy on a breezy day, the boyshort has you covered, literally.

From Briefs to Boyshorts: Your Definitive Guide to Women’s Underwear

From Briefs to Boyshorts: Your Definitive Guide to Women’s Underwear 

When asked what type of underwear they buy, 58 percent of 650 guys surveyed in this Huffington Post/AskMen survey said “boxer briefs.” That kind of makes us laugh… what about you, ladies—do you have a favorite kind for yourself? Not so easy, right?!

Not only do we have lots of options to choose from for women’s underwear styles, but some of them serve totally different purposes or have very subtle differences that you might not be aware of. Or, perhaps you’re less confused and more indifferent about underwear variances, having never given much thought to them before.

Either way, it’s good to be educated about these things so you can reach for the best underwear every time without hesitation. To make things easy, we’ve compiled a guide to types of women’s underwear and the purposes they serve to meet your underwear needs.

Bikinis vs. Hipsters

Bikini vs. Hipster

These two popular styles are undeniable in their versatility and go-to goodness. While they are similar in shape, bikinis sit right below the hips, while hipsters, as their name suggests, fit a bit higher—usually just above the hips and have a wider waistband.

Bikini cuts can include string bikinis and other variations with narrower sides, while hipsters typically offer a bit more coverage. You can easily find cheekier styles (or less cheeky styles) that fall into either category, depending on what you’re looking for.

When it comes down to it, both bikinis and hipsters are incredibly versatile and go perfectly with any outfit—especially when they’re seamless. So it’s really just a matter of personal choice. These Silk Panties are a great option for a bikini or hipster style. 

G-String Thongs vs. Regular Thongs

G String vs. Thong

Ah, the thong. What was once a racy lingerie item reserved for special occasions has now become a staple in any woman’s underwear wardrobe. A G-string thong has the most minimal coverage of all undie styles, featuring a single string of fabric down the back and usually around the sides as well. (V-string and T-string are similar to the G-string, with V or T-shaped fabric right at the tailbone).

A “regular” thong is really just any thong that is not a G-string. They can be found in varying fabrics—though we happen to prefer our VIP Seamless Thong made of our sweat-wicking Happy Seam fabric (perfect for the gym). Any type of thong-style underwear will have little to no coverage in the back, which makes them the ideal choice to wear with those leggings, linen pants, or a little black dress that hugs in all the right places.

Briefs vs. Boyshorts

Brief vs. Boyshort

Briefs are the most classic cut, often with a higher waist and more coverage than previously mentioned styles. They aren’t typically very cheeky and some brief styles are mid-rise, like our No Brainer highwaisted brief—which is also stretchy, tagless, and made without any stitched seams. Boyshorts are a feminine twist on a men’s classic boxer style, with coverage past the cheeks and a hipster waistline.

We tend to think briefs are an excellent choice if coverage is your concern, or if you just need something hassle-free to toss on during the morning rush. Boyshorts are a fun, flirty style that may not be best if you’re looking to avoid panty lines, but they’re great to wear for lounging with just a big t-shirt or a cute cami.

Hopefully, this guide has given you some info to use next time you’re shopping for new undies or digging through your drawer of current favorites. If you’re in the market, we’ve got a few lacy and seamless styles that are sure to fit right in to any wardrobe.

What are Cheeky Panties? 

A Cheeky panty is exactly what it sounds like! It’s similar to our silk underwear brief with a lot less fabric around the seat. A cheeky panty is our least favorite underwear style at Uwila Warrior. A cheeky panty is not designed to stay in place throughout the day. It is not designed to wrap around your bottom, so as you move around the fabric will not recover with you. This style of underwear will 9/10 times cause an uncomfortable wedgie and our team suggests you opt for a thong or a full coverage brief. The “in-between” styles are what causes unwanted underwear problems!
