Briefs are a type of short and snug women’s panty style, as opposed to other styles that has material extending down the thighs. Briefs come in their own various styles and usually feature a waistband attached to fabric that runs along the pelvis to the crotch and buttocks. This panty cut is worn by both men and women of all shapes and sizes. Many women don’t think briefs have the sexiest connotation. We say, so what? Briefs can be attractive and stylish. Not to mention, they’re perfect for comfortable everyday wear – especially when you’re not trying to hide panty lines. They’re very similar to the bikini panty, but they offer a more traditional cut and extra coverage. Women's brief panty styles Traditional brief: Traditional female brief panties are a panty style designed to give you plenty of extra coverage in both the front and rear. It’s typical that the waistband of a traditional brief rises to the natural waistline and the leg lines are lower and have a squared off look. Mid-rise/low-rise brief: With the same generous front and rear coverage of the traditional brief panty, the lower-rise brief panty’s waistband usually sits at about one or two inches below the natural waistline. Hi-cut brief: With the same rear coverage you expect from a traditional brief underwear panty, the higher-cut leg openings provide a longer leg appearance due to the higher-cut leg openings in the front. The leg openings typically hit the high point of the hip. French cut brief: French cut briefs are made to give your legs a flattered, sexier look. With the traditional full coverage in the back and a waistband that hits the natural waistline, the leg opening hits the high point of the hip. Control brief: With the same appearance of a traditional brief panty or hi-cut brief, control briefs are made with control panels to slim, smooth and perfect your silhouette.
