12 Perfect Pairs Of Underwear For Your Exact Body Shape
A startling percentage of women don’t wear the right underwear for their body shape – or they pull a Britney. Liezel Morkel, owner of Lady Chatterley’s Chamber Lingerie Boutique, has some useful tips to ensure you always make the right choices.
Classic And High-Cut Briefs
Pro: Full coverage and moderate support for sagging tums and bums. Cons: Can’t be worn under low-rise pants. Gynaecologist Dr Salema Nosarka warns against control panels. Tight undies can lead to indigestion and bloating.
Boyshorts And Hipsters
Pros: Prevent visible panty lines (VPLs), and smooth out lumps and bumps on your hips and upper thighs. Con: If you have a bit of a belly, wearing boy shorts or hipsters will result in a muffin top.
Thongs And G-Strings
Pros: Make you feel sexy and eliminate VPLs. Great for women with small bums. Con: These may look sexy, but the health effects aren’t. Women prone to vaginal infections or chronic cystitis should avoid them, says Nosarka.
