Panty Underwear Style for Women
A style of women's underwear that has a close-fitting waistline, placed at the hip rather than at the natural waist, but that offers support of more boyish or subdued curves. The fabric for hiphuggers can be made of many fabric blends, however commonly, these panties are based in cotton or lace, sometimes a hybrid with lycra. These panties are also often low-rise, allowing women to wear them under clothing and avoid them being visible above pant or dress lines.
As a choice, hiphugger panties are also sometimes worn on days during a woman's period which are heavier in flow. Since the undergarment style is rather sexy and supplies good coverage, these also tend to be worn for comfort and modesty.
