Underpants Ahead

Karen suggested a roundup of cute panties, and I was like, "Okay!" Yup, that's the entire backstory. Unfortunately, browsing undies is a bummer because 99.99% of the models are really thin and pale. Can we plzzz get some diversity up in here?! Anyway, I decided to focus on artisanal, US-made, or fair-trade options (although one pair is merely organic).

  1. Hi Sonya! I found your blog via Leah at Style Wise, and I really enjoy your daily posts. The Ryan Gosling panties cracked me up (Hey Girl!), but it is so hard to find ethically made underwear. Thank you for posting these links. I hadn't considered trying Etsy for my unmentionables. :)

  2. Omg the Ryan Gosling panties. The first are my favorites, but his face is a close competitor.

  3. I love the ones with the heart on the butt. Not that Ryan Gosling panties aren't incredibly practical.

  4. Cute underwear are the best and this post just reminds me how sad my underwear are looking these days. Time for new ones - though I can't spend $45 on a pair of underwear despite them being awesome. Those red heart butt ones are my favorite!

    1. I know right?! I'm in the same boat. If only money did grow on trees :(

  5. I was wearing "granny panties" regularly until one day I walked into the Aerie store and realized that just because it will go underneath my clothes, doesn't mean it can't be pretty.

    That Ryan Gosling underwear tickles me. I would totally wear a pair of Benedict Cumberbatch underwear.

    1. Noooo I'm not gonna lie, the idea of Benedict Cumberbatch panties horrifies me. But to each their own, I suppose. Regardless of taste, hooray for pretty underwear! Tbh I care more about comfort, but both is best.

    2. Hahaha! Even though your opinion about BC undies is the complete opposite of mine, I couldn't help but physically burst out laughing at the way it's worded.

  6. Hey Girl.

    This is fabulous. I love what you did with this. Plus, the pdf is pretty awesome. I've never been tempted to make my own granny panties (Bloomers, yes.), but those look very cool. I would totally wear them.

    1. I know, right? I'm really tempted to try it out but elastic intimidates me.

  7. Definitely agree on the need for models who aren't the 'typical' type! I think retro and vintage underwear models are going some way to addressing this but it should be more widespread in mainstream lingerie!
