They can be made from many different fabrics, including cotton and lace. Some also have a stretch fabric like elastane or spandex for added comfort and fit.


There are a wide variety of fabrics that are used to make herpanties. Most are made from breathable, soft fabrics that wick moisture away from the body and allow air circulation. Many also have an extra layer of Zorb or another special padded material in the crotch to prevent heat and moisture buildup. Some herpanties are crafted from 100% cotton while others are made from lightweight and soft performance fabrics. Modern underwear and panties come in high wasited, thong, hipster, brief, bikini, and boyshort silhouettes.

Women with flat or minimal back flesh should avoid hi-cut panties because they may ride up in the back and create a wedgie. Instead, they should consider boyshorts or tangas, which offer cheeky back coverage that looks good on most women.


For the most comfortable fit, look for panties with a thin waistband. These allow air to circulate around your waist, reducing odor and itchiness. Some brands also include spandex or elastane, which provide stretch for a custom fit.

The best panties are made from cotton that’s organic and ethically sourced. Pact’s organic cotton basics have a great fit and come in many styles, including lace-waist thongs that are soft and pretty. This style is a good option for pregnant women and new moms, as it has support in the front for postpartum bellies.

Other options for period underwear include this thong, which has been described as “a little bit bluesy and a lot tough.” Montinique Dever, founder of Riot Swim, loves it because it’s “not bulky like a pad but absorbent.” It can hold up to six tampons, she says. The high-waisted version is another favorite, as it’s a more comfortable choice for mini dresses.


The fit of women’s panties is important. The fabric shouldn’t pinch or twist, and the crotch area should lie flat against the body. Women should use a soft measuring tape to measure the fullest part of their hips. The measurement should be taken while standing up. The waist should also lie snugly against the body.

For a comfortable, cute pair of women’s panties, try Pact’s lace-waist thong. Customers have rated these undergarments 3.8 out of five stars, saying they’re soft and comfortable. They’re also easy to wash. The only downside is that if you put them in the washer, the lace may come undone.

Another great option is WAMA’s bralettes. Their size chart correlates with typical bra sizes so you can find the right fit. The company’s bralettes are made of organic cotton and sustainable silk. They’re machine-washable and available in a wide range of colors. Meena Harris, founder of Phenomenal, recommends these undergarments for their comfort and ability to replace pads and tampons.


While selling worn panties is a lucrative endeavor, you must be careful when setting your prices. Overpricing can deter buyers and leave you with fewer sales. Underpricing your panties can also send a message that they’re not worth much, which can deter potential customers. It’s best to start with a middle range for your used panties, especially if you are new to the industry.

Other factors determine the price of herpanties, such as their fabric and style. For instance, a pair of herpanties made from satin or silk can cost more than a pair of cotton herpanties. You can also add a pair of lingerie sets or stockings to increase the price. Generally, herpanties sell for about $60 – $80 per pair on Sofia Gray.
