Comfort is Key: How to Find the Most Comfortable Underwear

Underwear is an essential garment, often underestimated in its potential for comfort, especially when trying to achieve a sexy silhouette at the same time. Wearing uncomfortable underwear can lead to frustration, distraction and discomfort. Discovering the most comfortable underwear for your body type and lifestyle can make for a truly transformational and life-changing day to day experience. Fortunately, as the creators of the World’s Most Comfortable Thong®, you’ve come to the right place. We know what we’re talking about when it comes to comfortable lingerie. Follow us and we will steer you towards the most comfortable underwear options and what to consider when shopping for new knickers.

Understanding Your Body Type
The first thing to do when finding comfortable underwear is understanding your body type. We all possess a unique body shape and it's crucial to find underwear that fits your body comfortably. Whether you're curvaceous, athletic, petite, or plus-size there are numerous underwear styles can cater to your body type.

Take Your Waist and Hip Measurements
Before embarking on your shopping journey, taking measurements of your waist and hips can serve as a useful starting point in finding your perfect fit. Tight underwear can cause chafing and discomfort, while loose underwear can lead to bunching up, riding up, or even slipping off.

Different Styles for Different Body Shapes
Various underwear styles are tailored to suit different body types. For instance, briefs are an ideal choice for those with “straight up and down” body shapes, whereas thongs complement curvier figures (but truly, they work for everyone!). Additionally, high-waisted underwear offers more coverage around the waist and stomach, catering to those who prefer extra support and a smoothing effect.

The Right Fabric
The choice of fabric significantly influences your comfort level when it comes to underwear. When shopping, opt for soft, breathable, and moisture-wicking fabrics. Here are some top fabric choices for comfortable underwear:

Signature Lace
You can’t beat the softness of our Signature Lace - just ask anyone who has tried it before. Built with significant stretch weaved into its nylon composition so it moves with your body, you will be surprised at just how comfortable lace can actually be.

Cotton is a favoured material for underwear due to its softness, breathability, and gentle feel on the skin. It's a natural fibre that's easy to maintain and incredibly durable. Look for cotton underwear with a slight stretch for added comfort. We use the finest Supima® cotton in our products, and every single one of our lace, microfibre and modal fabrications feature a Supima® cotton gusset!

Microfiber, a synthetic fabric boasts softness, a lightweight feeling, and breathability. It's also moisture-wicking, ensuring you stay dry and comfortable throughout the day so it’s great for working out - VPL also disappears and is virtually invisible, even under yoga leggings. Microfiber underwear, such as our BreatheSoft™ collection, is an excellent choice for those leading active lifestyles.

Modal, derived from beech tree fibres, is exceptionally soft, lightweight, and boasts excellent moisture-wicking properties due to its natural sourcing. Modal underwear like our DreamEase™ collection, is also perfect for individuals with sensitive skin due to its unmatched softness.

The Right Support
Comfortable underwear should not only feel good but also provide adequate support for your body. If you require extra support for your back, stomach, or hips, there are underwear styles designed to meet your needs. We’ve listed some top underwear styles for various types of support:

High-Waisted Underwear
Ideal for those seeking additional support around the stomach and hips, high-waisted underwear offers a smoothing effect and a flattering silhouette. It's also a fantastic option for those desiring a little more midsection coverage.

Attention to Detail
When shopping for comfortable underwear, it's vital to focus on the finer details. Here are some aspects to consider:

Ensure the waistband of your underwear fits snugly without being overly tight. Look for a waistband crafted from soft, stretchy material that won't dig into your skin or roll down. There’s a difference between low and high quality stretch too, so look for something that will always bounce back like our Original Rise Thongs or Low Rise Thongs. If you prefer additional comfort and support, a wider waistband like those on our Retro Lace styles can offer that.

Leg Openings
The leg openings of your underwear should fit snugly without causing discomfort. Look for underwear with smooth, flat edges that won't gather, bunch or ride up during wear.

Smooth, flat seams will help prevent irritation and chafing.

Investing in Quality Underwear
Investing in high-quality underwear is crucial when finding the most comfortable options. While opting for cheaper alternatives may seem tempting, they often lack comfort, durability, and quality construction. Here are the benefits of investing in high-quality underwear:

High-quality underwear is designed to withstand numerous washes and wears while maintaining its shape and comfort. We prioritise durability in all of our designs and pride ourselves in our long lasting knickers that defy fast-fashion!

By understanding your body type, selecting the right fabric and support, paying attention to details, and investing in quality knickers that will last, you can discover the perfect pair of underwear that offers exceptional comfort and fit. Don't settle for discomfort! Prioritise comfort and relish the benefits of feeling great all day long.
