There are so many words in the mere description of these panties that putting words here almost seems redundant. Still, I feel bound to point out the very interesting ‘cross ribbon’ design at the front of these panties, which I haven’t seen on any others that leap to memory. I also really like the almost pin stripe / cable effect of the front panel. It’s like the panties have their own little jersey or something. These are adorable and feminine and oh so pretty. There’s a few more color options displayed in the images below, plus if you’re interested, a matching brassiere!
It’s a thong! It has lace! It is comfortable! And seductive! These panties from DKNY are clearly seeking to be all things to all people, so I’m pretty sure that these panties will probably do your taxes and change the oil in your car. Or not. If you want to leave them with your tax forms for a few hours and see what happens, be my guest. That’s what we in the panty business call science.
But seriously, a thong that sets out to be comfortable as well as seductive is the sort of thong you want in your life. These panties come in four colors, black, white, ‘dune’ (which frequent visitors to this blog will immediately recognize as a veiled description of ‘beige’ and this animal print called ‘Urban Cheetah’, because it’s an altogether more sophisticated print than the feral wild cheetah would allow.
Most of the lace mentioned is on the rear of these panties, in that tantalizing triangle before the ‘thongy bit’ dives down the cleft of your cheeks to secure your panties, much like Bear Grylls leaping into a dark and mysterious ravine. If that isn’t a mental image you’ll thank me for, then I don’t know what is ;).
Modern day materials and a slinky low bikini cut join forces with something a little more classic to produce these darling mesh and lace polka dot panties from Betsey Johnson. The playfulness of the dot pattern (dubbed ‘Hottie Dottie’) is offset by the darker mesh lace at the sides which hints at sensuality and it’s all wrapped up with two little ribbons and bows at either side of the front panel. The panties come in both red and blue polka dot versions (both are quite striking in their own way) and have a ruched rear seam which I can tell you from experience is a great deal more comfortable than it might look at first and really provides definition for your derriere. No more pancake butt for you!
Would you look at these panties? Would you look at the leopard print? Would you look with your eyes? I would and I did. These panties are in ‘Electric Tonal Leopard’, which is possibly the best print / color combination of all time. Or at least this week. They also come in other colors if the red isn’t quite your thing. Grey and sort of blue and also ‘soft girlie pink’, which looks like a sort of chiffon bridal pair of panties. Oh what the heck, I’ll add a picture at the end of this to show you. Also, how many rayon panties do you see these days? Not many, if any.
Garters belts and panties unite! I like these, I like these a lot. I think it has something to do with the mesh and the lace both playing an integral role in the general wonderfulness that is this panty combination. Jezebel makes many such wonderful garters if the length displeases you, but I think there’s a certain femininity about the way these garters extend far down the thigh, shrouding it in meshy lace mystique that will delight even the casual panty wearer – or indeed the panty wearer looking to branch out into the delights of hosiery.
Ruffles and lace and hipster panties, oh my! If you’re an edgy sort of girl, or an edgy sort of guy more likely, you might fancy edging your end into these pretty panties which come in lovely black and white and also white and black, if that’s more your speed. Also ‘Carribean Blue’ and some kind of pink perhaps. I don’t want to get your hopes too high, especially when the black / white, and white / black options are so very classical and monochromatically lovely in their aspect.
These panties have such a long name one almost suspects that they’re making up for something. It turns out that what they’re making up for is a lack of rear coverage because they’re a thong style panty.
The color of the panties pictured is called ‘lovely orchard’ which is perfectly charming and mildly agricultural. What better color scheme to adorn the region of the body where one’s seed is produced? (That’s not vulgar, I maintain that the designer knew exactly what they were doing when they called purple and blue ‘orchard’. What orchard has blue and purple in it, I ask you? Blue and purple are berry and vegetable colors. But now I have digressed so far from the topic of lingerie that returning to it will take more skill than I have. So I shall end this parenthesis here and allow you to do with this information what you will.)
The DKNY classic beauty hipster panty is an entire range of panties, a variation on a single theme, a panty plethora. The plain versions of these panties are wonderfully meshy and see through, so if you like having your rear somewhat visible, these will work for those purposes.
If you forget who made your panties, DKNY have thoughtfully written their initials on every single pair, so you can impress other people and enjoy the thrill of brand recognition. Mmmm branding. Saucy.
But seriously, there are some very pretty panties here in a range of colors and styles so whether you’re in a plain white mood or a sort of sparkly red sheer mood you can satisfy your desire.
Tanga panties are panties that seem to be bikini panties from the front, but when one turns around they transform into something more like a thong, with minimal rear coverage that leaves a saucy amount of cheek showing.
These Maidenform tanga panties come in several colors and patterns, each mnore lovely than the last. There are deep reds that bloom with sensual style and lighter, pinks that blush across the wearer’s behind. Those who prefer a more austere and serious look will be glad to discover that these panties also come in ‘steel grey’, a very rare color in panties indeed. When it comes to variations on a theme, Maidenform are at the top of their panty game.
If you’re looking for panties that are light, lacy and able to reflect your changing moods throughout the week, I suggest browsing the Maidenform French Collection.
Calvin Klein’s lace and sheen panties have a delicate shine to the fabric, a quality that catches the light and elevates what might have been a common lingerie experience to a new plane of sleek smoothness. The effect can be seen quite clearly on the plain blue styles, though it runs throughout the entire line. What’s their secret? I don’t know for sure, but I’m reckoning it can be found in the nylon / elastane blend. These panties come in a wide range of colors and styles, so if you like the cut and style but the color doesn’t leap out at you, you might be well served by viewing these panties more comprehensively at your leisure.
Today’s lingerie selection was something I poured over for quite some time. I wanted something special, and when you’ve looked at as many pair of panties as I have (which, to be fair, many of you probably have,) you know that a sort of lingerie fatigue can set in after a while. But Natori is a brand that can always be guaranteed to bring two things to the table, originality and luxurious feel. These panties are no exception to that rule. They’re high cut, though the bulk of that high rise is lace. Only the gusset is made of an opaque nylon spandex blend, the front and rear are one solid band of feather styled lace and mesh that leaves little to the imagination.
You’ll notice that these panties are beige, which is an underrepresented shade on this site for reasons I’ve gone into many times, but I’ll give panties as beautiful as this a pass. They can be as beige, or as ‘cafe’ as they want to be. Those who share my aversion to beige can also find these panties in black and a creamy off white. The black is much more dramatic looking than the beige, the high contrast of the darker lace and mesh emphasizes the sheerness of the panties.
Here are two very cute, very feminine and very sweet sheer panties, panties that will not hide all that lies within their soft boundaries. Though quite different in their own ways, they both embody a concept of light lingerie, the sort of lingerie to be worn on a balmy summer’s evening, or a sweet spring day.
The first panties, from Coquette are absolutely gorgeous. Not only do they have a white mesh that is quite sweet, they have a short lace trim and a rear seam that will define your cheeks in a way that will make you see your rear in a whole new light. These are not the sort of panties that will withstand rough treatment or hard nights, but if one wishes to wear something delicate and to drift for just a while in the flimsy floaty dreams of light lingerie, these are your panties.
The second panties I’d like to talk about today are actually thong panties. They are rather ornate in nature and unlike the panties above, do not feature a rear of any consequence at all. The thong ensures that the front of the panties is where all the action occurs and with contrasting colors and patterns tracing their way across your intimate areas, there’s going to be a lot of attention drawn there.
