These Ribbed Cotton Undies With Strappy Sides

This cute cotton underwear is a dream for anyone who wants a subtly sensual look while lounging around. The set gets its appeal thanks to a ribbed cotton construction and cut-out hips — just note that these aren’t seamless panties, so they might show through leggings or ultra-thin bottoms. “Although they are not no-show through tight bottoms they are extremely comfortable and I love the colors,” one shopper wrote. They’re just the thing to wear with an oversized tee.
