Throw away the thong! Granny panties are suddenly hip and trendy

Here's a trend that every woman can (quite literally) get behind. We used to think of so-called "granny panties" as something every woman detests.

But now, many young women are “Saying No to Thongs,” as The New York Times wrote last May, and turning away from traditionally sexy, skimpy lingerie styles in favor of underpinnings with a bit more coverage. If you’re ready to embrace this underwear evolution and try on fuller-coverage bottoms, read on to discover a few of our favorite briefs and boy shorts, all available online now.
