Here are the different types of underwear for men and women.
- BIKINI PANTYThis is the panty part of a 2 piece bathing suit used for swimming. It is very brief and the top of the panty usually starts well below the waist and consists of a triangle shape in the front and the back. Bikini panty is made of an opaque waterproof fabric. A V cut bikini has a V cut in the front.
- BOY SHORTSThis is a type of innerwear for women that looks very similar to the boys’ underwear (boxer briefs) with the leg hem cutting straight across the thigh. It will be very short with the waist sitting by the hip but with full coverage on the back and the hem will be almost on level with the crotch. (Boy leg briefs/Boy cut panties)
