No Line No Crime

I will be the first to admit that after the birth of my child I am in no mood for a thong ( sorry TMI). Therefore with pants season upon us (vs. summer where I wore skirts of a flowy nature) I am in need of a undie drawer makeover and the courage to break out a thong again. I don't know what it is but I just don't feel up to it.

So I am thinking that I may be able to get away with these "no line" panties if they really, truly are line-less. Thoughts? Reccomendations? Comments are appreciated.

No Line Briefs:

Then... super duper No Line ( since the line is up your butt)


  • ya know...the way i feel about the whole "panty line" thing is: i just wont put myself through the violating feeling of wearing a thong as a trade off for removing panty lines....and honestly, a lot of times you STILL have a panty line at the top of your butt crack where that thing is coming out!!

    and i'm just thinking....please, oh please, dont make me carry that image around in my head, people!

    and then there are the pants that are white and so transparent that you have to wear a thong because your underwear shows through the material...again, wearing a thong is NOT helping!!! we can still see it!! ack! my eyes!!! saw an example of this the other husband and i said at the same time, "Nice thong!" (to each other, of course, not to the poor women who thought she was getting away with something).

    sooooo, i'm a firm believer in "whats wrong with people knowing you actually wear underwear?" oh no! the horror!

    now, theres a difference between seeing a little evidence and being able to determine exactly the kind of underwear you're that second case, the pants are probably NOT the right size!

    however, I have heard that usually these no line panties are pretty effective, and the price is right, so i say go for it! I bought all my maternity underwear from target and these look like they are made from the same kind of "microfiber"...and let me just say...i will still wear those underwear to this day (my son is now two!), they are ultracomfortable and light!

  • I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT PANTY LINES!!! I seriously don't care. I will never care. I totally agreea with Krysten, who cares if people know that I actually wear underwear? I am very "Fashionable", I really am. I wear Earl jeans and stilleto's and all the cool stuff, but I will not wear a thong! As I have gotten older, I realize I just don't like that area being uncomfortable. I might wear inappropriate shoes, but I draw the line at a thong with jeans, Hello Chafing!

    Having said all that, Underwear should not be visible outside of your clothing, nothing peeping out. If something requires a thong, know what....I won't buy it, simple as that.

    On a side note. I hate strapless bras, and any shirt that either requires them or require some bra that has never been invented. Why do they make clothes that are see thru? I don't buy them, but still, why don't they just put a liner in, a real liner, not another thin piece of fabric, and a shelf bra, or something?

    Sorry about this rant, I really needed to get it out. Also, I am sure that the undies are fine. Screw the thongs though!

  • WOW ladies- thanks for the feedback! I hear you I was brought up by a very fashionable woman in a VPL (Visible Panty Line) type of family. It's okay to rock the grandma panties in my book, I just thought I would do the rest of the world a favor and try to decrease the buldge. I could solve this problem by eating less chocolate and spend less time sitting on the computer blogging.. and spending more time on the treadmill I suppose...

    It's great to know that there are cool chicks out there who hate thongs too.

  • DON'T BUY THOSE UNDIES. Seriously. I bought them, and the seams came out almost instantaneously. The Target version (I *love* Target!) is like a cheap version of the Victoria Secret ones I got a year ago and are still holding up well. I was so terribly disappointed b/c usually the Target brand is excellent, but in this ONE case, it was very disappointing. And yes, I did purchase the correct size for my boootay.

  • I get the Hanes Microfiber Hi-Cut Brief at Target. No lines. So comfy.

  • I can NEVER find those hanes microfiber briefs at Target. I seriously spent a 1/2 hour staring at the undie display one day. People must have thought I was nuts.

    I guess I will have to go back there today, oh well an excuse to see what is up with the cart cupholders and drink a pumpkin spice latte..

  • I refuse to wear a thong too, but another option that I go for with some pants -- especially the white ones are those things that look like bike shorts. They're nylon and spandex, they hold it all in and they don't leave panty lines. They are not the most attractive on their own, but no one can see them under your pants. I know they sell them at Target, but I don't know what brand they are.

  • The root of panty lines is that panties are not shaped like women's butts. Who has a bit that's shaped like an upside-down triangle? Nobody. Yet all panties are shaped like that.

    Panties need to be shaped so the line is going to hit the place where your butt meets your leg, then it won't show. Something like a boy-short, but sleek fabric like a panty.

  • Get the hanes microfiber briefs. There's nothin like em.

  • Those things are awesome! I picked some up from target on clearance, and I LOVE them. Totally comfy and no lines.
    Another option is just to go commando. :)

  • OK, I have not had any luck with any "intimates" that are Gilligan & O'Malley brand.

    There are no-line cotton (not microfiber) undies at Target and they are my favorite, but I can't remember the brand - they're not Hanes, though. All cotton and no "bands" at all, so they are totally comfy. They're not grannies but they do fit the shape of the normal female booty, and are barely visible when wearing pants.

  • The best thongs are found at that other big box retailer. The W. They have a line called The World's Most Comfortable _______. The Thong is fabulous. Seriously, I wear them all day with NO complaints. The only drawback is that they come up a little high, but since I think that I might be too old for ultra, ultra, low rise jeans, it is okay.

  • These are great, no lines, very thin, they feel like you're wearing nothing at all. The only drawback-they get a little ballie after a couple months washing, but they're so cheap I just get new ones.

  • you know i thought i was the only one that did not wanna wear thongs after my son was born that was 2 yrs ago this saturday thanks for letting me know i'm not a weirdo

  • A few days late in the game, but I am a devoted thong-hater. And I've never even had kids. I tried to get used to them, and just couldn't do it.

    I HIGHLY recommend Barely There Microfiber Seamless No-Ride-Up Panties. Low-rise bikinis for day, high-cut for bedtime. They are the closest thing to going commando, SO comfy, no VPL, no riding up - and they just started making them tagless. Generally around $8-9/pair at most major department stores.

    There is a brand of undies called "Commando", but they only come in thongs and girl shorts (which is cross between a thong and a bikini - I've tried them, if you don't like thongs, you won't like the girl shorts). And they're $30 a pair, so far too pricey.
