Briefs

Commonly identified by the colloquial term "granny panties," this undergarment provides full coverage and a high waistband. Sure, it's not the most attractive style of underwear, but it's certainly the most comfortable.

When to wear them: Unfortunately, the up-to-the-navel waist makes these visible in low-rise jeans and trousers, so limit them to your high-waisted pants or for, you know, that time of the month.
