Low-rise boyshorts are a popular new style of panties, with lower leg openings as well as a lower rise. A low rise is defined as a measurement between the waistband and the first horizontal seam that is 5"" or less. This lower waistband is perfect for modern low-rise pants and skirts.
Boyshorts, with their 1/2""- 1"" inseam, get their name from their resemblance to men's briefs, but with a decidedly feminine look. Even with a lower rise, the modern boyshort offers good rear coverage and many women say this style eliminates visible panty lines.
