    I am SO glad you have aerie up there! I have a butt that won’t quit and I LOVE them. Even more so because I thought they were going to be the typical cheap ride-up, but they weren’t, because they’re awesome. :)

  • Shevon Says:

    I’m with you, forget panty lines, thongs are for looks only.

    Dear Maggie,
    Please, as a favor to your future self, wear something made of cotton. Other materials may be prettier but trust me… :)

  • abby Says:

    american eagle underwear is my favorite! every pair i’ve owned has stayed put, isn’t too high/low, and doesn’t sag like victoria’s secret.

  • Laura Says:

    If you’re like me and have ever wondered if men’s boxer briefs would be really comfortable to wear around (or if you satisfied that curiosity by actually trying some on…) you may be pleased to know that hanes makes them for ladies now: http://www.hanes.com/Hanes/Products/Women-Hanes/Women_ShopByCategory-Hanes/Women_Panties-Hanes/Women_Panties_authenticcollection-Hanes/21342.aspx

    I bought pink ones at target, and they really couldn’t be more comfortable (I guess they are the ultimate in panty lines… but whatever)

  • charm Says:

    Being an Australian, most of those brands arent available to me… Luckily I don’t need any of them because down here, we have Bonds. Best Underwear EVER!

    Love the first pair though. Totally CUTE!

  • Robin Says:

    The Hanky Panky thongs are wonderful (and worth the price)! I’m five months pregnant with twins and plan to wear them for the duration of the pregnancy. They might get a little stretched out but I can hardly tell I’m wearing any underwear at all.

  • lucy Says:

    thank you for this post! hope you enjoy them all :)

  • anna Says:

    Another vote for Hanky Panky. I wear the thongs when I absolutely have to, and the boyshorts the rest of the time. But look for the non-ruched variety–they have them at Bare Necessities, I think.

  • Rhi Says:

    I ordered the free BlogHer panty from HerRoom (I got the boy short) and OH MY GOSH, those panties are comfortable. They’re microfiber and unlike my cotton boy shorts, they do NOT ride up.

  • divrchk Says:

    How many of you spend $35 on one pair of panites? If so, are these your every day undies or special occassion? I must be living in a closet. I wear the seemless Jockey’s which are much less expensive.

  • Eric Says:

    When I saw the title of this post I was expecting desert recipes or something, not a bunch of women’s underwear. I haven’t decided if am disappointed yet or not.

  • Ms. Karen Says:

    Wow… So many different styles. But $18 for ONE pair? Holy shit! $36??? Uh, no. Unless they also did all the laundry, dishes, AND cleaned out the cat box, then…maybe.

    Yeah, I wear cheap underwear, and I stab people.

  • Simpson Says:

    Um…yeah…I think $245 is TOTALLY reasonable for one week’s supply of underwear. There isn’t anything BETTER I could do with that money.

  • Stephanie Says:

    Maggie, there is not a more comfortable SINGLE PAIR OF UNDERWEAR than these from Gap Body: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=16087&pid=520478

    They have changed my life. And they’re super cute on, to boot…

  • poptart Says:

    Hanky Panky’s changed my life. I’m glad they made the list. They are awesome! The thong…I never thought I would be able to comfortably wear a thong, but indeed the Hanky Panky is the answer.

  • valerie Says:

    i love the hanky panky thongs – so comfortable and so pretty!

    they go on sale every year at the nordstrom anniversary sale. this year i think they were about $11, which is a great deal.

  • auntjone Says:

    Your honesty re: thongs is refreshing and hilarious. I was wearing them every so often until I got too fat for every pair I own…grr….

    I’ve not found a comfortable boy short but then I have hips that won’t quit so maybe I’m not built for them. They are cute but I’m just not motivated to try again.

  • Tara Says:

    Thanks for an amazingly helpful post!!! I’m right there with you on the thongs (and love the way you phrased it). Though hear they’re the thing now that I’m pregnant — sit below the belly and you don’t have to worry about fitting an ever-widening butt. Sigh.

  • pantyraid Says:

    Am I the only up in here who gave up on underwear altogether? Spanx for special occasions/skirts but I haven’t worn undies in 10 years and I’m a college graduate and have all my teeth and everything, I promise.

  • Jen Says:

    Maggie. I simply just gave up, and only wear them for special occasions. So long panties. Life is so much better now. Here’s my post about it: http://jlogged.com/2007/09/02/panties-who-needs-them/

  • torrie Says:

    Yes Maggie, but which pair did you find most comfortable?

  • Laurie Says:

    Thongs for $18 even $11 is not at all reasonable! The amount of fabric and design that goes into thongs is less than a tank top. Think about it, you are basically paying $18 for a pantiliner.

  • Julie Says:

    I LOVE Hanky Pankys, but they’re just too pricy.

    Gap Body has a knock-off that is pretty damn good, too. 3 for $24.

  • Elise Says:

    We readers are pretty passionate about our drawers.

  • Mark Dodge Medlin Says:

    For a while, one of the photos on my blog was near the top of Google’s search results list for “boy shorts.” As you can imagine, this was one of my proudest moments as a photographer.

  • chicklet Says:

    While I’m not sure how comfortable they’d really be, I love the gobstoppers – who can resist polkadots!?

  • The Stiletto Mom Says:

    Hanky Panky’s are the BOMB. Here’s the thing though, you have to go through two or three days of getting used to the “what the hell” feeling and then you don’t feel them anymore and can say goodbye forever to VPL’s. One more thing, if you buy them…when you wash them, you need to hang them to dry, they get softer and then you don’t even know they are there! Take the plunge and buy them on sale, otherwise they are $$$!!!

  • kate Says:

    Hmm. This is good. I’ve been thinking a lot about tights lately as fall approaches and how they can be so fabulous, but comfy tights are hard to find. Anyone know of a great brand of tights that are stylish and won’t suffocate or constantly slip down to the knees?

  • elfini Says:

    “From your keyboards to my butt” – nominated for greatest post title ever!

  • Lucy Says:

    Here’s another vote for aerie underwear – I love all the styles, not just the boybrief.

  • Ellis Says:

    One vote here for abandoning women’s underwear altogether for boxers unless the quality starts improving. Digging the first one, though, damn I love polka dots.

  • eliza Says:

    Another vote for Hanky Panky thongs (now they have organic cotton ones too). I like the lowrise option. Cute AND comfy, I swear. I purchased the Gap knockoffs once but they stretched out and didn’t last very long. Hanky Panky’s are pricier but last for years! Still wanting to know which ones you like the best, Maggie…

  • Liona Berani Says:

    Recently go on the Internet TV channels I stumbled upon on this and am happy to provide it to you. I was surprised, but the channel was obsolyutno free 24 / 7. Watch and enjoy.

    Just chiming in late, but wanted to give feedback on the Women’s Mesh Hipster Underwear. I also have trouble with underwear and these were SO Comfortable!! The sale was great, and although the shipping was a tad slow, the final result was worth it.

    Thanks so much for this feature!
