|The brief style of panties has a high waistband, sitting at or just below the navel. Womens briefs provide full coverage and are cut roomier than other panty styles. Briefs are not the sexiest panty style out there, but they can be the most comfortable, which is especially important in control panties and shapewear. |
Control briefs may be designed with a waistband even higher than the navel and most styles have a low-cut leg opening. This allows for great shaping of tummy, rear and hips, providing a smoother silhouette. Some control briefs will have all-over control and other styles will have an additional control panel to firm the tummy. As utilitarian as shapewear briefs are, they can still be pretty. Some are embellished with scalloped lace. Others may be trimmed with ribbon and bows. Whatever the design, a shapewear brief will provide a smooth, clean line without bumps and bulges, so you can wear your clothes with confidence.
