Thongs fill an increasingly smaller section in my lingerie drawer these days. I used to think they were mandatory for certain pants and close-fitting skirts but my attitude is changing and I’m much more comfortable now. I’m talking about granny panties, aka full-cut briefs. We’re going there because I’ve found them the best option for my over 50 body.
Granny panties are defined as classic briefs with a high rise and have full coverage in the rear. They’ve been the butt (pun intended) of jokes for years. Described as uncool, unsexy and frumpy, they’ve been the panties that every woman was supposed to hate, even women over 50.
The fact is granny panties are comfortable and healthier to wear for many reasons. They minimize muffin top bulge, help conceal lower belly sag and prevent visible panty line. They’re also healthier than thongs if you have hemorrhoids, urinary tract infections or leak a bit when you laugh.
A quick peek around the internet turns up more sites selling full panties than ever before. They come adorned with lace, satin, sheer inserts and silk bows.
These are what I wear most days. They have a vanishing edge at the leg opening with stay-put silicone strips that keep the panties in place without panty line. The light nude is a perfect shade for me that is invisible under white linen pants which are notoriously see through. They have several nudes to choose from so I recommend you choose the one that matches your skin tone the closest
Full-cut briefs are available with high cut leg openings and also in a thong version which defeats the purpose in my mind but each to her own.
Have you discovered full briefs AKA granny panties?
