15 Sexy-Cute Body Positive Underwear For Grown-Ass Ladies Who Value Playfulness And Girl Power

Full disclosure: I hate “sexy” underwear. Sure, I have some pretty, strappy bras that I like to wear peaking out from under tanks and sheer tops, but I see them more as part of my outfit than “underwear” (and I do so love the body positive lingerie trend!).

But when it comes to the nether regions where the sun don’t shine, I am definitely a breathable fabric, mostly full-coverage kind of gal. My panty drawer consists almost entirely of items that walk the line somewhere between granny panties and adult-sized underoos. I prefer boy shorts and hip-huggers over g-strings and thongs, and it has nothing to do with wanting to cover up or “flatter” my body/shape (because, news flash, you should always wear whatever you like) — it’s really just all about what feels comfortable to me.

The thing is, though… I still think my weird, novelty underwear are kinda sexy. Why? To me, it’s all about how you wear them. I’m a grown-ass lady whose tastes sometimes gravitate towards things that are “cute” — but that doesn’t mean I’m prudish or oblivious to my feminine wiles. I feel comfortable in my grown-up underoos, and feeling comfortable in your skin means you can feel confident in who you are, and confidence is super sexy. One thing that frequently helps boost my confidence: Having a fun and playful print on my bum that sums up the kind of girl power message I want to express.

To demonstrate my point, I’ve put together this list of delightfully cheeky (no pun intended), body/sex positive undies you need right now.

Pet The Kitty?

Miss Galour Knickers, $22, Naja

Undiz Crayoniz Chalkboard Briefs With Chalks, $14, Asos
