Survey Says: Best Full Back Panty for No VPL

Survey Says: Best Full Back Panty for No VPL

Want full coverage underwear without the visible panty lines (VPL)?


According to a survey of Hanky Panky staffers, the best full coverage panty for no-VPL confidence is our Breathe boyshort. “They do not show under my yoga pants,” said Larissa, our Senior Designer. Hanky Panky Breathe is made from a soft, smooth, and ultra-lightweight microfiber knit. The boyshort’s raw cut edges make it invisible under the closest-fitting pants, skirts and dresses. All bottoms in the Breathe collection include a Supima® cotton gusset lining.

For full back coverage without panty lines, Hanky Panky boyshorts in Signature Lace, Heather Jersey, Modal, and Organic Cotton took a close second. Camille, our international sales manager and a “devout boyshort gal,” prefers these other boyshorts for wearing under skirts. “Our sig lace, jersey, modal, and cotton boyshorts are trimmed with a narrow band of lace that lies flat on the leg, so there’s zero chance of them rolling up.”

The Retro Hot Pant has been a “sleeper” style since it was introduced in Spring 2011, with a strong cult following among Hanky Panky staffers and customers. “The Hot Pant is the most comfortable, sexiest thing to wear under anything short,” says Shannerri, who works closely with lingerie boutiques. “There’s no VPL under pants, but I mostly wear the Hot Pant with short skirts and dresses.”

Unlike our Signature Lace thongs, Hanky Panky’s full back coverage panties are sized. Please check out our size chart if you are unsure of your panty size, our style guide for information on fit and different fabrications.
