Before we get into the meat and potatoes, let’s take a look at some of the important factors to consider when choosing the best underwear that will offer you an outstanding fit:
Choosing the Right Style
Knowing which style panty is best for you comes down to analyzing several different factors. First, you will want to consider your body type and what level of support will make you more comfortable. Ideally, you will want to choose a style which eliminates any type of unwanted pinch. For example, women with a full rear typically find panties that provide full support on the back and will be not only the most comfortable but also the most flattering, while women seek to minimize the appearance of their stomach area will appreciate a supportive high waisted style.
Additionally, you will want to consider the type of clothing that you usually wear. For example, women who like to wear a lot of tight clothing may find a thong style most appealing, however, many women prefer to wear fuller coverage boy shorts under loose clothing such as skirts and dress pants.
Choosing the Right Size
