Besides the leg opening that sits on the top of the thigh, boyshorts panties are distinguished by their low rise cut. The rise is the measurement, in inches, from the waistband to the first horizontal seam of the panties, which is usually at the crotch. Typical womens briefs have a six inch rise.
In low-rise boyshorts, the rise is less than 5"", meaning that these little boy-styled panties sit well below the waistline, usually around the hip. The combination of the low rise and low cut legs makes for a flattering and cute style that works perfectly under low-rise jeans and skirts. Boyshorts typically leave no visible panty line, either.
