Granny Panties Can Be Just As Sexy As Thongs

by Yesha Callahan

Apparently not all undergarments are created equal and some are now considered more worthy than others by people, by worthy I mean sexier. I recently caught a clip of Megan Good in “Think Like A Man”, and in order to adhere to the 90 abstinence rule, she didn’t wear her usual thongs, but wore a high-waisted panty, commonly known as a “Granny Panty”. Apparently these were supposed to keep a man away and make her less desirable.  Not that I bothered to finish the movie, but I hope that worked out for her.

For the record, I don’t understand what’s sexy about a string in between a pair of butt cheeks. I’ve never worn a thong, but I imagine it takes a little getting used to. I also realize a lot of men are fans of them, but that still doesn’t entice me into wearing them.

Thanks to designers and the revival of retro  fashions,  granny panties have evolved. They no longer look like the panties your mother or grandmother used to wear. Even top designers are realize that thongs aren’t the only panties designated for the sexy label.

Recently, Isaac Mizrahi spoke to New York Magazine’s The Cut blog about panties,  “It’s hard for it not to have a je ne sais quoi — I mean that for real. Little panties can be sexy but so can big [granny] panties.”

Just take a look at a few of these retro styles below, and his point is proven.

A quick internet search will point you in the direction of several sites that specialize in retro styled undergarments, some are a little more costly than others, but it’s all about how much you’re willing to spend on undergarment fashions. Fashionable, sexy & comfortable. Your granny would be jealous.

    women wear granny panties when they don’t have a kim khardasian figure. It gives the illusion of having more of a smaller mid section than you really have. If you see pics of Rihanna in other bikini shots she is kinda more even from top to bottom. Even the models in these pics are not that curvy, but the angles that they took the picture and the panties do give the illusion that they are curvier than they really are.

    Thongs are uncomfortable to me. Whether they’re in style or not, boy shorts, regular bikinis, and “granny panties” are where it’s at for me. I have to be in the right frame of mind to deal with the ultimate/intentional wedgie that is a thong for more than just a “hello, let’s skip dinner”.

    “Granny Panties Can Be Just As Sexy As Thongs”

    Errrrrr…….no.

    I don’t understand why the fascination with style of the underwear (at least to men). Most men can’t tell a thigh high, from a bikini, from a boy short, to a boxer brief. And women’s underwear really do come in about a dozen different style, and “granny panties” the way so many men refer to them are actually plain, white, cotton, high-waist briefs. But other types of brief-style under wear like the bikini cut are definitely just a sexy. But if you wear a black lace brief versus a white cotton bikini, then all of a sudden the bikin becomes the “granny panties” just because it’s white cotton.

    I’m personally a fan of boxer briefs and boy shorts. I find them incredibly sexy, on males and females. Throw them on with a white ribbed tank top and it’s an incredibly sexy look for a woman.

    And oh by the way, if a guy has something smart to say about the types of underwear a woman is wearing she can always just keep her pants ON!

    Thongs and G-Strings do not promote vaginal well being.

  • ChillyRoad

    I think they’d look better on you so you wear them.

    I wear granny panties because they are comfortable and healthy. I especially where them when I am going to the gym. I have a Kim Kardashian figure except my ass is bigger, my thighs are bigger, my waist is smaller, and my breast are smaller. I still rock my grannies.

  • Jade Noelle

    ok, women who are celebrities and take photos for photoshoots. That is what I was thinking of, but I should have said.

  • Patience

    I prefer boy shorts too.

  • jamesfrmphilly

    um, it is not the panties, it is what is within the panties…..

  • @jade Beyonce has an hour glass shape and is pictured above in granny panties.

    Thongs and G-strings are uncomfortable to me. I only wear them on occasion. I like pretty cotton panties. It’s funny how some people think anything other than thongs are granny panties.

  • Pseudonym

    Thongs are the same as panties in regard to how they “promote vaginal well being” because the pad underneath your vagina is basically the same. It’s more about having material that breathes than the shape of it. G-strings don’t have a pad for (if I may be honest) any drips that may occur during the day so while it may end up on your leg or clothes instead, your vagina will still remain just as healthy as it would have been had you worn full panties.

    So I would say this statement is false.

    Please let me dog for a minute and say that Rhianna butt looks better in those bloomers than in any of those bikinis I always see her in on the beach!

  • Jaslene

    I love big ass granny panties if I am wearing them at all. Thongs can’t handle my butt crack.

    Personally, I keep a selection of granny panties because they make good lounging and sleep underwear…lol I do think they do have a certain sex appeal if you pair them up right and if you pick a proper cut, material and design. NOTE: not all “granny panties” are created equal.

  • Jade Noelle

    She has wide hips. But her body is not like Kim K’s. Her clothes are tailored to make her curvier. see this picture http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2008/startracks/080922/timberlake_beyonce.jpg She typically stays away from outfits like these, and tends to wear outfits like these http://stylefrizz.com/img/Beyonce-black-sequined-Pucci-dress-Met-Gala-2011.jpg but it’s hard to tell with her because her weight has varied over the years, and she has been known to use padding.

  • Hehe

    I love lacy “granny panties” and lacey boy short panties. I love them because they’re comfortable and pretty. I hate thongs and my man actually prefers boy short panties.

  • MommieDearest

    Actually, thongs and g-strings are unhealthy for the vagina. Wearing thongs and g-strings can cause urinary tract infections, because the bacteria from the anus is carried conveniently along the “string” right to the vagina. Whereas with panties, there is no “carrier” for the bacteria.

    I’m also a boyshorts fan. Been wearing them for years. I have a large behind, and boyshorts provide coverage without unsightly panty lines. And they are very sexy.

  • Miami

    The undies you are showing are hardly granny panties. Men generally abhor the white, cotton, no-elastic-having panties that women tend to wear when they are being lazy. The beautiful briefs and high-waist panties you are highlighting, would hardly draw the same reaction as a “granny panty”.

    I agree with you. I was just about to say granny pantaloons on someone with “my” figure don’t look nary as good on someone with a figure like Rihanna. HOWEVER, the level of comfort I’m sure is the same for all womenz. LOL. I swear, full briefs especially made of good material are so darn comfy!

  • Sanura Hart

    :) agreed! boy shorts are definitely sexy. love them

  • African Mami

    a thong is not comfortable.

    @ … Beyonce does not have an hourglass figure, she is a pear shape like Alicia Keys, even when she is smaller or bigger, she is still a pear shape. I don’t understand how people can get these two shapes mixed up. If you have a bigger lower body that your top half, you are a pear not hourglass. Kim seems to have an even bust and bottom half, with a small waist.

  • @smile beyonce has always been labled as someone with an hourglass figure.& aks body is way diff from beys.when they have on bikinus u can see the difference.

  • Wang Ming

    It’s a woman’s curves that are sexy; the shape of her tummy, her hips, and her rear. Seeing a woman in a pair of so called ‘granny’ panties, especially the non-cotton ones, looks extremely sexy, especially the way the panties hug, move and highlight every curve she has. It’s a package I love to unwrap!!

    Thongs are comfortable if you’re not fat. Of course, if you’re fat I don’t care what you’re wearing; my blinders go on automatically.
