When it comes to the best, most comfortable and sexy undies to have for everyday wear, there’s definitely not a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants situation happening (aka, no one fabric, fit, or style works for everyone). So then, what’s the one pair of essential undies everyone should own? The easiest way for a woman to feel sexy is when she feels truly happy in her own skin, comfortable with herself, and confident to go through her day feeling like a total rockstar.
The best undies for feeling sexy and comfy boils down to the ones that make you feel your personal best. Whether you feel amazing in a pair that’s seamless, or you feel your most comfortable when you’ve got a little piece of mind by way of moisture-wicking fabrics, that “one magic pair” of undies should make you feel incredible, no matter what you’re wearing. Plus, there’s even a pair here that will keep you confident during that time of the month by giving you extra leak-proof protection that looks adorable (yes, it’s possible).
So read on, choose your favorites, and get ready to learn how to have your most comfortable and cute underwear drawer ever.
