Top list: Stylish briefs for every occasion

The range of different brief models and boxer briefs has probably never been greater and it can be really hard to stand in a store and try to find a new favourite. Here are some of our favourites!

Top list: Stylish briefs for every occasion

Underwear has always changed with clothing fashions, and now the choice of styles is wider than ever. After thongs made a controversial entrance in the early 2000s and every Hollywood celebrity seemed to be wearing them, maxi briefs have now returned in even more models than before. Maybe we’re tired of having too little fabric covering our most delicate parts. In any case, here are seven brief models for all tastes!

Sloggi 24/7 Microfibre Tai - Black

Sloggi 24/7 Microfibre Tai – Black

Since 1979, Sloggi has offered soft and comfortable briefs with a good fit, and they are one of the best-selling brands in Europe when it comes to underwear. These briefs from Sloggi’s 24/7 series are no exception, being made of a soft material mixture of 88% polyamide and 12% elastane, which makes them very stretchy and comfortable. The thin elastic edge at the waist and at the legs means they offer an extra good fit and stay put comfortably.

Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Thong - Black

Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Thong

A thong in a slightly sportier design with a lower waist. The soft elastic means that this thong fits very well and comfortably around the hips. The material is an incredibly soft blend of 53% cotton, 35% modal and 12% elastane, which makes the briefs both stretchy and smooth. The Modern Cotton Thong is available in several different colours, all with white elastic with the Calvin Klein logo.

Hanky Panky Signature Lace Low Rise Thong - Black

Hanky Panky Signature Lace Low Rise Thong

Hanky Panky are known for their soft and stretchy thongs, and this model is no exception. A perfect model for those who prefer a v-cut in the front edge of their briefs, and a low waist. The soft lace, which has become Hanky Panky’s hallmark, is designed so that it doesn’t irritate your skin. And according to the company themselves, they sell an average of one thong every ten seconds.

Triumph True Shape Sensation Shapewear Maxi - Black

Triumph True Shape Sensation Shapewear Maxi

With this model, Triumph are offering form and a lot of fabric to give a real shaping effect. For those who like underwear with a high waist, which gives full coverage over the backside and are low cut on the thighs, this is the perfect choice. The neat transparent edge at the top makes the design a little more fun and the material mixture of 50% polyamide and 5% polyester also contains 45% elastane to make it really stretchy and comfortable.

Three tips when buying briefs

  1. Think about your activity. Avoid underwear that cuts into you or doesn’t feel comfortable, whether you are sitting in the office or on the yoga mat. Choose the right model for the right activity.
  2. Check the material. Some people’s genitals are more sensitive than others, so be sure to buy materials that won’t give you any problems.
  3. Check the washing instructions. Having only underwear that must be washed in a small bag on the lowest washing programme can make washing a chore. Choose (at least some) underwear that can handle normal washing.
