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.

  1. 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.

    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”.

    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!!

  5. 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.
