Posted by editor On November - 7 - 2008

There are different kinds of paties out there so what is your panty styles?

Thong – these bareback basics panties have much practical purpose, in that they eliminate unsightly panty lines under skirts and snug-fitting pants. Among thongs categorie here are the most common thong varieties:

G-strings feature little more than a triangle of fabric in front and a thin “string” of fabric around the hips and down the back. This is one of the skimpiest thong styles and is best reserved for wearing undertight-fitting bottoms to eliminate visible panty lines. (see g-string thong pictures bellow)

V-strings are similar to G-strings but feature a rear string that separates into a “V” of two strings (or a small triangle of fabric) at the rear waistband. (see v-string thong pictures bellow)

T-backs have waistbands or strings that stretch straight across your waist; so from the back, the side and bottom straps have a “T” shape. (see T-thong pictures bellow)

Rios are similar to T-backs except the waistband rises above the hips at the sides instead of sitting straight across your waist and back. (see rio thong pictures bellow shown on man and woman)

Bikinis – give full coverage in the back with leg openings that are cut above the thigh. Most bikinis sit about three inches below the natural waistline, although with the popularity of low-rise pants, some are now cut even lower.

Boy-cut short, Culottes & Hipsters Briefs


Boy-cut short is a full-coverage panty style with a low-riding waistline and leg openings that rest just above the thigh. Because they sit so low on the waist, boy shorts can visually lengthen your torso (see boy-cut pictures bellow)

Culottes is cut like a boy-cut short except it looks like a skirt wrap/mini divided skirt. (see culottes pictures bellow)



Hipsters Briefs – offer the same low-riding waistline as boy shorts, but the leg openings hit well above the thigh, helping to avoid the fabric “ride-up” you sometimes get when wearing longer-cut boy shorts. While hipsters are generally considered a full-coverage style, some may be cut a bit higher in the rear than classic boy shorts or briefs

Modern briefs, like traditional briefs, offer full front and back coverage, but have a lower rise. Their waistbands sit a few inches below the natural waistline.

High-cut briefs offer the same full coverage as traditional briefs, but have high-cut leg openings in front. The waistband sits at or just above your natural waistline.


French-cut briefs (picture shown bellow) have the highest-cut leg openings of all brief styles. The leg openings hit the highest point on the hip and are positioned more to the front of the panties than the standard high-cut brief. The waistband should sit at your natural waistline.


Control briefs (picture shown bellow) are meant to slim your tummy, bottom or upper thighs. They look like traditional or high-cut briefs, but feature control panels at the front, rear or both.
