You’ll always find our wardrobe well stocked with everything from top trends (the ones that work for us, of course) to classic closet staples. But apart from clothing and accessories, we feel that a carefully put together selection of intimates is just as essential! We put together a checklist for your underwear drawer. These are the 7 kinds of panties every woman should own - quickly head to the nearest lingerie store and stock up!
As "unsexy" as people would have you believe cotton panties are, there’s no denying that they are the most comfortable! They are your best option for daily wear and a definite must-have for shark week. Don't hesitate to stock up on a whole bunch of them!

Lace panties have sophistication written all over them. And we think that’s good enough reason to stock up on a few! There’s no going wrong with black, of course, but a few fun colours wouldn’t hurt either. You sexy thing, you!

They may not be on our list of top 10 comfortable things to wear (and, yes, wearing them on a daily basis can be harmful too), but that doesn’t mean thongs can be ruled out of the underwear essentials list. Because, sometimes our pants and skirts really are too tight to wear anything else underneath but thongs!

Seamless panties are a great alternative to thongs. They’re definitely more comfortable. While thongs may sometimes reveal a little too much, seamless versions provide adequate coverage minus that dreadful VPL! Fun colours and prints are always a welcome addition, but make sure you have your nudes in place - they are the handiest, after all.

Now this may be different for everyone - a lace thong or mesh bikini for some and boy-shorts with a cute print for others. But every woman ought to have a pair of go-to sexy panties, whether someone’s going to see it or not. This is something that makes you feel sexy and confident at the same time - just what you need on days that demand an instant pick-me-up.

The comfort they offer is not even up for debate. But more than that, they also offer great coverage and are quickly being considered as lounge-wear (behind closed doors, of course) too. And don’t be boring while buying them. We give our vote to boy shorts in bright colours, fun prints and cheeky statements. Don’t you agree?

Shapewear panties are generally styled like briefs and come with a high waistband, promising to give your lower half a smooth and shapely look. They are perfect for midriff control and derriere construction.
