Cheekini panties are clearly a play on the ‘bikini’. The general idea of the cheekini is that the rear of the panty is cut quite high across the buttock, leaving a fair amount of cheek showing whilst also reducing panty lines in the process. These are a viable alternative to thong lovers who are growing tired of feeling as if they have a never ending wedgie.
The cheekini panties pictured today are by Betsey Johnson, a firm that isn’t afraid to give their panties some serious names. ‘Hottie Dottie Powderpuff’ is the moniker for the sweet pair shown at the top of this article, whereas the pair demonstrating the rear cut below have been named ‘Layla Leopard Skinny Dip’.
