Lately, it seems as if everyone is wearing thongs and swearing up and down that they really are more comfortable than non-thong panties. But if you’re still not buying that line, there are plenty of non-thong alternatives capable of fighting VPL—that is, visible panty lines. You just have to know which style to wear under what. Here are my top three choices.

Gap Ultra-Low Modal Teeny Bikini, $4.99, available here. This delicate panty is my favorite to wear with jeans, because it stays put but doesn't cut into the skin.

Two more, so

Victoria’s Secret Sexy Little Things Lace and Fishnet Brazilian-Cut Panty, $14, available here. The wide lace edging makes these panties perfect for dress pants, jeans, and tight-fitting skirts. Avoid wearing them with jersey dresses, though, as the lace texture will show through.

Barely There Invisible Look Modal Bikini, $7.20, available here. This style is great with jersey dresses and loose-fitting skirts, since the seams sit smoothly against the tush.
