Don’t get your panties in a bunch! It’s easier said than done when you have the wrong undies on, so we’re here to help you sort out your panties drawer with our Yummie underwear guide. 

Below, take a peek at the types of underwear every woman should own, from when you need less coverage to when you crave the most. With Yummie women’s underwear, you’ll find super soft fabrics and comfortable designs of shaping and non-shaping styles to make you look and feel your best, always.

Best Underwear for Women Seeking Minimal Coverage: A Barely-There Thong

Sometimes, you only need a little. A little coverage, a little fabric, a little support from a Yummie thong. Under figure-hugging pants or a skirt, say buh-bye to visible panty lines without sacrificing comfort. 

Yummie thongs, like our Liliana Comfortably Curved Shaping Thong disappear under your clothes, yet still provide a gentle smoothing band for your tummy and lower back. If you want more support than our mid-waist slimming underwear styles, we also have high-waisted versions that slim the entire torso to under the bra line, front and back. 

The Most Comfortable Women’s Underwear for Everyday: A Classic Pair of Briefs

Briefs are the women’s underwear equivalent to your favorite tee: soft, reliable, and a no-brainer. Our briefs are the best underwear for women seeking a style that revolves around comfort with plenty of coverage to make you feel totally secure. Perfect for lounge days or weekends, our briefs come in different colors and waist heights to provide you with support where you want it. From flirty slimming underwear like our Gemma Signature Logo Ribbed Smoothing High Cut Panty to those trimmed with delicate lace, our briefs are an everyday women’s underwear staple. You can be sure: No granny panties here!

A Beautiful In-Between: Slimming, Non-Shaping Bikini Underwear

With slightly less coverage than briefs, bikinis are a good in-between style that many women love to wear on a daily basis. Bikini panties typically have higher-cut legs than a brief with a lower waistband. Without compression, our Non-Shaping Simply Soft Seamless Bikini is among the best underwear for women who are looking for an ultra-comfy option to wear under loungewear, dresses, and almost everything else.

Women’s Underwear for Wearing Floaty Dresses or Athleisure: Shaping Shorts

We all need a trusty pair of shaping shorts for days when extra coverage is required. Many women love wearing our shaping shorts under dresses because they feel less exposed and enjoy the slimming base that stays put. Plus, during the warmer months these shorts are true thigh savers – no chafing or rubbing in these beauties. Our shorts run the gamut of lengths and style, from our Ultralight Seamless Shaping Girlshort to long shorts that extend to just above the knee. For an everyday basic, our Bria Comfortably Curved Shaping Short is a go-to slimming underwear style with light compression and five beautiful colors.

For All-Over Torso Smoothing: A Bodysuit

Let’s not forget that a bodysuit can be slimming underwear, too! The beauty of a bodysuit is, of course, how easy it is to wear. With 360 degree torso smoothing, it can be worn as a top on its own, or with a cardigan. A fun on-trend stripe, such as our black and white striped Ruby Cotton Shaping Thong Back Bodysuit has the comfort of classic women’s cotton underwear yet looks effortless and ready-to-wear with a pair of boyfriend jeans and sandals.

Best for When It’s Hot Outside: Temperature-Regulating Women’s Underwear

Temperature-regulating shaping bottoms are the bonus item in this women’s underwear guide that you didn’t know you were missing. However, once you try our stay-cool underwear, you’ll want to wear them all summer! 
Our Cooling FX shapewear collection is made from lightweight NILIT® Breeze underwear fabric that moves heat away from the body to keep you cool even on the warmest days. It’s what makes these among the most comfortable women’s underwear because they’re both buttery-soft and have impressive cooling power. Our Cooling FX® Mid Waist Thigh Shaper and Cooling FX® Wear Your Own Bra Shaping Singlet Bodysuit are a dream beneath structured clothing like formalwear.


Toss out your uncomfortable panties and give your underwear wardrobe the makeover it deserves. Whether shaping or non-shaping, the best women’s underwear should make you feel like the goddess you are. With Yummie undies in every style, getting dressed is a breeze because you look and feel confident from the inside out!
