It seems like everyone and their mother has a different opinion on what type of underwear is the best, and that’s because every woman’s body is beautifully unique. Thongs might feel like the most comfortable thing in the world to some, while on others they might feel like a torture device. Same goes for boy shorts and hipsters.

Below you’ll find 19 of the best, most comfortable underwear brands to shop online, whether you’re looking for something to throw on every day, a no-show silhouette, a sexy lace number, or all of the above. These will keep ya butt covered (literally and figuratively).

Soft Stretch High Waist Seamless Briefs
Everything that the French lingerie brand Chantelle creates is…how you say…très chic, including this no-fuss option. They’re a mix of a boy short and a brief, giving you the perfect amount of coverage. And the material really hugs your body for an “I’m not wearing anything” feel.
Graphic Lace Cheeky
ThirdLove is known for its wide range of bra sizes, and the same rings true for its underwear. These cheeky undies are available from XS to 3X, and reviewers say they feel incredibly sexy wearing this allover lace style.
Cotton Rib Briefs
Kim Kardashian West is killing it with her Skims undergarment collection, which has cozy, sleep-worthy bras and ridiculously soft fuzzy lounge pieces. Want something with comfy, I-stole-this-from-my-BF vibes? These high-waisted briefs with contrasting seams check all of the boxers, er, boxes.
Inside Edit Shaping Briefs
You might know Wacoal for its impressive bras, but the panties are also *chef’s kiss* good. This high-waisted pair is ultra lightweight, which is a must on hot summer days, and it has some hidden contouring powers too.
Bliss Cotton Girl Briefs
Natori makes ready-to-wear, home decor, and accessories. But the undergarments are the hero pieces, like these pretty briefs. The stretchy (not loose) fabric will feel like heaven on your bootay. Not to mention, reviewers say that sizing is spot on.
Second Skin Thong
Tommy John might have started out creating undergarments for the fellas, but the brand also nails things in the women’s department too. Take this wildly comfortable thong for example. The wide band along the hips and in the back of this best seller guarantees the thong stays put. That’s definitely a must because who has time for wedgies?
Leakproof Boy Shorts
Knix’s founder set out to create a chic pair of panties for periods, et voilà. This triple-layered panty will keep things feeling dry down there—no matter what happens. And the smooth bulk-free design is also a major plus!!
For You HW Thong Underwear
Ultra sexy, bondage-inspired pieces aren’t out of place on Gooseberry’s website. The French brand loves testing out daring elements, but these simple, flirty mesh panties—thank goodness—come in a pack of three.
From watches to furniture, you can find it all under the Calvin Klein label. But the logo-trimmed undergarments might be one of its most famous creations (well, next to that cult-favorite fragrance). If you want a ’90s look (or if you want to channel Kendall Jenner), grab a few pairs. They’re not just for Instagram selfies. They’re actually SO soft.
Mesh Palm Lace High Cut Thong
Aerie’s won tons of respect from customers and critics for its inclusive marketing. But I love that their pieces, like this high-rise thong, don’t annoyingly dig into your skin like others can. Another plus? You can buy them in bulk and get six of these for $25.
Under Statements® Thong
You may know Spanx as a shapewear brand, but don’t sleep on their other undergarments OR their leggings. This ultra-breathable thong makes it feel like you’re not even wearing anything and comes in tons of neutral shades or fun patterns, depending on your mood.
Renata Thong in Riviera Blue & Moon Ivory
Since the ’80s Cosabella has been a go-to for the cutest lace undies. For those moments when you want to feel extra pretty (even if nobody else sees them), slip on this delicate lace pair. The scalloped design along the hip and the centered bow is too gorge to pass up.
Whipped High Rise
Negative Underwear has a range of cute and practical underwear options, but the Whipped High-Rise is by far the best for full-bum coverage. Also, although it is high-waisted, you won’t find any lines or marks from the material on your skin.
Everyday Lace High Waisted
Naja is an eco-conscious brand on a mission to help keep single mothers employed. You sorta get two-for-one (hello, savings) with this mixed-material style that has a sporty band and a frilly lace finish. Also, a percentage of each purchase goes to the brand’s entrepreneurial sewing program.
Yep, Athleta makes amazing leggings, and its undies are just as soft. Ever touch a fabric that feels like butter? Then wait until you put these on. The silky material is like a second skin, and the raw-cut edges mean you won’t ever deal with those annoying panty lines. Plus, the neutral shade adds even more invisibility.
Nala Mid Waist Shaping Briefs
When you want an extra hug around your waist, Yummie products always come in clutch. This high-waisted brief looks pretty norms, but there’s a hidden contouring band that’s not too tight.
Looking for a hard-to-find bra size? Go to Cuup’s website rn. The brand also has panties that have an amazing fit, like the bikini ones pictured here. The cheeky style cuts low in the front and high in the back for a sexy fit.
The High-Rise Hipster—Heather Grey
Everlane’s a go-to for all our sustainable fashion needs, including underwear. If you haven’t tried these “soft as your favorite T-shirt” panties, you’re missing out. That Supima cotton feels like a fluffy cloud for your tush.
Fleur du Mal
Fleur du Mal is the queen of making fancy lingerie that doesn’t feel uncomfortable. Go for these floral-embroidered undies, and you’ll be all set for a night out. The mesh fabric is breathable and cozy enough to wear when you don’t have plans on the calendar.
