12 Pairs Of Cute Cheap Underwear


When it comes to shopping for underwear, comfort is key — but that's not to say that aesthetics aren't important, either. In fact, wearing underwear that you find cute (or beautiful, or sexy, or what have you) can have a major impact on your self-esteem, even if nobody else will be seeing it. But on the other hand, stylish lingerie tends to be pricey — which is where these 12 pairs of cute, cheap underwear come in. Not only is every set of panties on this list super affordable (each pack contains at least three pairs, and the most expensive set is $25), but their pretty designs will make you feel comfortable, confident, and totally put together.

Next time you get dressed, take a Maria Kondo-eqsue approach and think about it: do the underwear you're putting on spark joy? Do they make you feel confident? Or are they full of rips and holes? Perhaps they have an uncomfortable synthetic gusset. Or maybe, you've simply outgrown their design, and wearing them doesn't make you feel like your best self. If you notice any of these patterns, it's time to clean out your underwear drawer and replace those panties. With the cute, affordable sets on this list, there's really no excuse not to.

Whether you gravitate towards black lace hipsters, prefer breathable, cotton briefs, or love a cozy boy short, scroll on to discover 12 sets of cute panties for under $25.
