Brief Encounters

Your underwear may be hidden for the majority of the day but that doesn’t mean you don’t carefully consider which bra might look best with which shirt and which brief you won’t see through a certain dress. And with so many options out there how is a woman to choose! That’s why we’re giving you a brief encounter into 7 of our different brief styles and explaining the benefits of each.


The Brazilian Brief

A Brazilian knicker covers more in back than a thong but less than a full knicker. A Brazilian knicker has a full crotch, but the back is cut back to follow the apex of your cheeks in a V-shape.

The Ardour Brazilian Brief has a seamless front with a beautiful lace back for a discreet finish underneath your clothing. It’s a fashionable style that’s sure to flatter your curves; sitting wider than a thong but giving less coverage than your everyday brief.

The Thong

A knicker with a narrow strip of fabric in the back that begins as a “v” shape at the waistband and then tapers to a thin strip by the time it reaches the crotch. The cheeks of your bottom are thus exposed. This style knicker is great if you want no visible knicker lines and a smooth appearance.

As we’re sure you are away, thongs offer little coverage but are great option when you need a brief that is a little more discreet. The Porcelain Thong offers a smooth seam free look under clothing, perfect for everyday wear or under those more fitted items for no VPL!

The Full Brief

A knicker whose waistband rests at or just below the navel, provides full back and side coverage. A variation to a brief is a hi-cut brief which has a hi-cut leg.

As it says in the name, this brief offers full coverage, having a high waist and a lower cut leg; a perfect style for those who feel a little more conscious of their belly or simply like the comfort of a higher waist. Lace trims add a feminine touch to the Sculptresse Full Brief Chi Chi, whilst the leopard print bow adds a fashionable twist.

The Short

The legs sit much lower allowing full rear coverage, although sometimes the back is slightly cut away to create a sexy shape.

The Andorra Short is perfect for every day comfort and style; with a full stretch lace for a smooth finish and bow at the centre front for added feminine touch. The short offer good coverage, with a lower cut on the leg.

The Brief


The Clara Brief has a double lace front with a semi sheer back panel; giving you a feeling of every day luxury, style and comfort.

But for a more fun and flirty alternative, try the Cleo by Panache’s Marcie Brief; sitting a little lower on hips with a cheeky frill edge.

So whether it’s Brazilian, Shaping, High Waist, Short or Thong, we’ve got a brief to keep you feeling peachy! Discover more from our brief range here.
