The Best Underwear for Travel

Two pairs of blue underwear hang on a clothesline outside.

Whether you’re traveling for business, pleasure, or outdoor adventures, you want undies that will work with you, not against you. That means quick-drying, moisture-wicking skivvies that you can wash quickly in a sink if need be.

Over the past six years, we’ve tested 37 pairs of men’s and women’s underwear while road-tripping, hostel-hopping, and backpacking in backcountry and urban environments.

Throughout these trips, the men’s ExOfficio Give-N-Go 2.0 Sport Mesh 6″ Boxer Brief and the Patagonia Women’s Active Hipster have both proved to be the best underwear for most travelers and active people in general.

Uniqlo Men Airism Boxer Brief

Affordable boxer briefs.

Comfortable, compact, and fast-drying, these are a great value. But they don’t fit quite as nicely and aren’t as supportive in the crotch as the ExOfficio briefs.

Uniqlo Women Airism Ultra Seamless HipHugger

Affordable panties.

Made of similar fabric as the Airism Boxer Brief, with a no-ride cut, these undies are the least expensive of any we tested and among the best performing.

The ExOfficio Give-N-Go 2.0 Sport Mesh 6″ Boxer Brief is the best men’s underwear for travel because it combines fit, comfort, odor-proofing, and value better than anything else we’ve tested.

The Sport Mesh fabric excels at breathing and wicking and has better odor-resistance than other fabrics. It feels soft on the inside and smooth on the outside, so it slides against your pants instead of creating friction, reducing potential for chafing.

These briefs also feature a sculpted crotch area that gives wearers some much-appreciated support without feeling stifling. These dry quickly, pack compactly, and weigh less than almost all the other boxer briefs we tried—basically, these briefs are everything you’d want from travel underwear.


If you’re willing to pay more for better fit and fabric, the Tommy John Air Mesh Boxer Brief 8” feels like a fine-tailored garment with the price to match. Offering the best front pouch of any boxer brief we tested, these soft undies also stay in place better than the competition, for a truly wedgie-free, riding-free, rubbing-free experience. They’re a bit long in the legs—not ideal for pairing with short shorts—but other than that, we have no complaints if you can afford the hefty price. (Tommy John does make a version with shorter legs .)

The Patagonia Women’s Active Hipster doesn’t appear special upon first glance. Only after trying everything else and living through their failures to stay put did we remember what “special” really means in a pair of underwear—feeling as if you’re wearing nothing at all. The Patagonias have the best fit, comfort, and style out of all the panties we tested. The nylon material is fast-wicking and better than most synthetics for odor-proofing, making this pair well suited to athletic activities.

The Active Hipster is lightweight and packable, and it is the fastest-drying underwear we tested—perfect for minimalist travelers who go weeks at a time with just one or two pairs. But these same characteristics make these panties great for any traveler looking for something comfortable and packable, regardless of where you’re going or what you’re doing.

If you want great performance at an even more budget-friendly price, Uniqlo’s Airism line is a great choice. The fit isn’t as nice as you’d get with our other picks: The legs on the Boxer Brief are a bit too short, and the Seamless HipHugger had issues with sagging at times. Also, the odor resistance isn’t as effective or durable compared with pricier boxers and panties. But given the line’s more-than-reasonable price, you’re still getting great underwear that wicks, breathes, supports, and dries as well as the best travel underwear available.

The research

Why you should trust us, who this is for, how we picked, how we tested, our pick for boxer briefs: exofficio men’s give-n-go 2.0 sport mesh 6″ boxer brief, runner-up boxer briefs: tommy john air mesh boxer brief, our pick for panties: patagonia women’s active hipster, budget picks for boxer briefs and panties, the competition (men’s underwear), the competition (women’s underwear), what to look forward to.

Liz Thomas is a former Appalachian Trail speed-record holder who has hiked over 15,000 miles in performance underwear. As an ultralight backpacker, she’ll use the same two pair of undies for six months, washing and drying yesterday’s pair for tomorrow’s use. She’s taken travel undies hostel-hopping on five continents, too.

For feedback on the challenges undies may face internationally, we pinned down global nomad and author of The Hidden Europe Francis Tapon during the Sudanese portion of his five-year walk through all 54 African countries. To get a better grasp on design features, fabrics, and the changing men’s underwear market, we checked in with Michael Kleinmann, aka The Underwear Expert , editor-in-chief of The Underwear Blog and founder of the Underwear of the Month Club.

Anyone who wants to travel light or needs more room in their luggage for the fun stuff will appreciate the convenience of ditching cotton underpants. The material used in travel and performance underwear (the two categories overlap considerably) is thinner and takes up less space in your bag. It also reduces chafing and wicks away moisture—ensuring that discomfort from your undies doesn’t hold you back from your adventures—and dries about twice as quickly as the cotton used in typical underwear.

With the convenience of quick-drying, hand-washable underwear, you’ll no longer be at the mercy of the laundromat hours or expensive hotel laundry service. If you can commit to handwashing nightly before bed , you can travel indefinitely with just two pairs of travel undies.

The only major downside is that travel underwear tends to be more expensive per pair than typical cotton undies. For example, Uniqlo makes both cotton and synthetic boxer briefs, and the cotton version is about half as expensive. And though synthetic materials have a slick, silky feel that many people love in underwear, they tend to feel less luxurious than the softer modal-blend skivvies popularized by companies like MeUndies. But these softer materials dry too slowly—about as slowly as cotton in most cases—and aren’t as effective at wicking moisture.

Underwear laid out on top of each other.

The panties and boxer briefs that we decided to test met these standards for travel underwear:

  • Moisture wicking and breathable: Travelers will generate more sweat in their groin than the average office worker. Moisture-wicking and breathable fabrics maximize comfort, reduce odor, and minimize chances of infection—all important features when you may not get a chance to change your underwear for a while.
  • Quick drying: Tapon wrote us, “You want [underwear] that you can wash at night and that [will be] nearly dry in the morning.”
  • Odor-resistant: Odor is caused by moisture and bacteria. Certain materials like wool or treated synthetics are more difficult for bacteria colonies to develop on. We included only undies that advertised terms like “odor-control,” “odor-resistant,” “antimicrobial,” or “anti-odor.”
  • Stretch: When you’re in a remote location filming leaps over chasms and rooftops on your GoPro, the last thing you want is a rip in your drawers. “For active guys, we recommend underwear that contains a performance fabric, or at the very least some amount of stretch,” Kleinmann wrote us. Typically, 6 percent spandex, elastane, or Lycra is the minimum you want to look for in a pair of good travel undies.
  • Style: Travel underwear shouldn’t mean dorky underwear. If your travels bring you to a place where you’ll be showing off your skivvies, what you’re wearing shouldn’t scare away the company.
  • Cut: Whether a particular pair of underwear stays up and doesn’t dig into your body depends a lot on your shape and the cut of the underwear. We opted for undies with generous coverage, but not so much that they hinder mobility: Boxer briefs for men, hip-hugger/bikini-style panties for women. When traveling, modest underwear allows more freedom to change in the open if need be, or for unconventional activities like swimming. We also found that medium-coverage underwear stayed in place, and skimpier underwear gave wedgies over time. Similarly, ill-fitting underwear tended to bunch up from rubbing against our pants.
  • Variety of cuts: We focused on boxer briefs and hip-hugger/bikini styles in this guide, but different bodies have different needs, so it’s nice if a line has multiple styles available.

We ran each pair run through a vigorous set of tests at home, including washing, drying, and sniff tests. Our ultimate goal was to determine how each pair ranked according to:

  • Fit and comfort: You should get wedgies from your siblings, not your clothing. A good-fitting pair of underwear is designed and cut to minimize readjustment. We looked for a pliable elastic waistband that stayed up without feeling restrictive. “If the waistband is digging [into you] or rolls over, chances are it’s a low quality pair or the wrong size or style for your body type,” warned Kleinmann. The fabric should also help your undies stay up with a snug fit and enough stretch to maintain free movement. Though underwear can be designed to be high- or low-rise, the top of the inseam should always go to the bottom of the crotch. When the rise is too short, you’ll feel restricted. Too long, and you’ll have to ride your pants up like Urkel or suffer a sag at the crotch. Many men’s boxer brief designs have a shaped front panel, also called a 3D panel or pouch. A good-fitting 3D front panel should fit closely, without restriction. Some companies, like Saxx put an additional pouch within the pouch—essentially underwear in your underwear—to add even more separation, but our testers preferred the lighter touch of a formed panel.
  • Fabric and seam scratchiness: Is the fabric soft or does it make you itch? Are there any annoying tags that can’t be removed (or if they are removable, is there still some rubbing where the tag was)? Do the seams rub against your skin or are they flush and out of the way?
  • Durability: Performance skivvies aren’t cheap. Look for fabric that will last. A solid waistband should not fold over or lose stretchiness over time. After handwashing, the fabric and seams should not show signs of pilling or loosening of threads. Experts differ on the reasonable life span of a pair of underwear, with estimates as low as six months to as high as four-plus years. What’s unacceptable is a pair that develops holes within a few months.
  • Long-term comfort: Whether you’re on a 23-hour plane ride sandwiched between two 10-hour bus rides or you’re backpacking in the tropics, you should be able to wear these for more than a day or two.
  • Lightweight and packable: Underwear won’t be the straw that breaks the weight limit on your check-in, but pairs that take up less space leave you more room for gear you really need.

We started by trying everything on. Anything that wasn’t comfortable to sit at a desk and work in failed the initial test and was cut from the list. We then wore the top performers for two days in a row, before conducting a sniff test. Testers also noted whether the pair felt grimy or otherwise gross. If so, we asked the tester to run the underwear through another two-day trial. To test durability, in addition to usual washing after wear, we washed each pair of underwear three times straight with a few pairs of jeans (to simulate a rough wash).

Because drying time is an essential component of travel underwear, after running all the underwear through the spin cycle, we line-dried it. We touched each pair every 20 minutes to determine whether it was dry and order of drying time.

We then moved onto real-world testing. The trips included backpacking 215 miles throughout the city of Portland, Oregon; six weeks backpacking the Canadian Rockies, walking from the lowest point in the Continental US to the highest; and road-tripping to the national parks of the West. And of course, wearing them on all the flights to our destinations.

Afterward, we checked for signs of wear. As we continued to test the finalists, we repeatedly checked for durability problems.

A pair of blue Exofficio give-n-go sport mesh boxer briefs hanging from an elastic drying line.

Whether we were sitting on a bus or walking hills, the ExOfficio Give-N-Go 2.0 Sport Mesh 6″ Boxer Brief  nicely balanced fit, comfort, durability, and cost. It’s virtually identical to its predecessor and our previous pick, the Give-N-Go Sport Mesh. The only difference is a slight change in material: from 92% nylon and 8% spandex to 90% nylon and 10% spandex.

Front panels are notoriously difficult to size correctly, but the Sport Mesh’s simple, stretchy pouch should accommodate a wide variety of body types, whereas the more complicated, multi-flap designs found on Saxx briefs can feel superfluous or stifling, depending on your personal situation. The Sport Mesh stretches as you move and retains shape well. It had the quickest-wicking performance of all the underwear we tested and dried fairly quickly, too.

ExOfficio made its name as a travel-underwear company with its long-lasting classic Give-N-Go model, which we also tested and has since been replaced by the 2.0 version (which we haven’t tried out yet). The Sport Mesh version has the features that made the Give-N-Go famous but pairs them with a better, softer, stretchier fabric. It also has a 3D front panel, a major improvement over the flat front panel on the original Give-N-Go. Our tester felt supported and contained, regardless of his movement.

What set the ExOfficio Give-N-Go Sport Mesh apart from the rest is that it transfers moisture away from the body better than the competitors. It is the ideal pair of undies for sweaty activities and hot locales. This pair also had better odor treatment than most of the others we tried, a feature appreciated by athletes and lazy launderers alike. “I have worn these boxers for years,” said our male tester, “and they have never let me down. They definitely combat odor.”

At 2.65 ounces (among the lightest we tested), the ExOfficio briefs fit compactly in luggage without a lot of bulk. They’re easier to fold than other underwear, with a more articulated front pouch.

Another advantage ExOfficio has over other brands we tested is that it offers a wider variety of cuts, colors, and sizes . Though we tested the green 6-inch boxer brief, if you want good performance in a specific color or leg length, it’s likely ExOfficio offers your combo. They are also among the most widely available performance underwear.

Our personal experience after years of wearing the original ExOfficio Give-N-Go shows that the odor-proofing antibacterial treatment eventually fades, and with it, the ability to wear them for multiple days in a row. But the fabric itself is nearly indestructible. The same can almost be said of the Sport Mesh version. Despite some early signs of pilling—especially in the perineum and the area between the legs—after six months of daily wear of a single pair (yeah, gross—we didn’t ask him to do this), our tester said this pair didn’t manage to develop any holes, despite some initial pilling. So if you can live with the old-sweatshirt look or don’t need to impress anyone with your undies, the Sport Mesh will serve you well for a long time.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

The ExOfficios had a good fit, but it wasn’t quite as perfect as that of more-expensive underwear we tested. The waistband can roll over, although it doesn’t dig. During backpacking trips, the six-inch boxer brief caused our tester some slight chafing between the thighs (he attributed this to the size of his thighs, as this is a problem he had with all the underwear). This issue could be mitigated by opting for the longer, nine-inch model, which we did not test. Our tester also attributes chafing to the fact that he wore the same pair for a few days, allowing the accumulation of salt, dirt, and other substances that could contribute to or exacerbate rubbing.

Our tester also noted that although the ExOfficio Give-N-Go Sport Mesh wicks away sweat and dries quicker than the competition, the times when you do manage to get them soaked, they can stick to the skin and be harder to remove than our other picks.

The Give-N-Go Sport Mesh also didn’t top the charts in our drying-time test. They took a bit less than 2½ hours to fully dry on a line compared with two hours for the fastest-drying boxers, but it’s unlikely that the extra 20 to 30 minutes of drying time will make or break any situation.

Amazon reviewers and Snarky Nomad warn that sizes run large, so size down if you can. Those with athletic thighs or butt may find the waistband and thigh holes don’t correspond to your body dimensions. ExOfficio offers a 60-day return program for unused items (with tags still attached) bought their its website, so if you aren’t sure what size to get, you can afford to make a few wrong guesses and the company will cover the return shipping.

A blue pair of Tommy John Air Boxer Briefs hanging from an elastic drying line in a tree.

If you’re willing to pay a premium for something with a better fit and stretchier, softer fabric, the Tommy John Air Mesh Boxer Brief 8” is a great upgrade. Our tester said they “fit like a fine tailored piece of clothing, yet excelled during strenuous exercise.” The fabric moved with the body, requiring no adjustment throughout the day. The undies didn’t dig, sag, or ride up. Tommy John scored higher than any other pair we tested, getting near-perfect marks in all categories. But these briefs cost $6 more than our pick and more than twice the price of our budget pick.

What made the Tommy Johns stand out for our tester was that it had an easily accessible fly and the best front pouch of any boxer brief we tested. The fly allows exit from the top, not the side, which our tester found convenient. He said this design allowed for a great flow of pee while also reducing pressure on the urethra to reduce dribble.

Close up of the fabric on a turquoise pair of Tommy John Air Boxer Briefs.

Snarky Nomad also likes the Tommy John boxer brief, despite some pilling issues. In his review , he notes that “most irritation is caused by the contents of the front pouch coming into contact with the leg...if the contents of the front pouch are properly surrounded, they are also immobilized , and they can’t escape the confines of the front pouch at all, and will never come into contact with the leg.” Snarky Nomad and our tester both agree that a standout feature of the Tommy John is that the front pouch is not flat, instead shaped to safeguard its contents. It also lacks seams that can rub in an area that really should not be chafed.

Another benefit of the Tommy Johns is the wide range of sizes—from small to 4XL. However, color options are more limited compared with ExOfficio.

Tommy John offers among the best return policies we’ve seen on any product: “ The Best Pair You’ll Ever Wear ” allows first-time online purchasers to love the product or keep it with money back if reported within 30 days. The company also offers free return shipping labels within 30 days for unused products.

A blue pair of Patagonia Active Hipster Briefs hanging from an elastic drying line.

The Patagonia Women’s Active Hipster doesn’t sacrifice style for performance. It stays in place better than any other underwear we tested, dries quickly, and is more packable than anything else we tested. And it holds up great to strenuous activity and multiple washes—unlike the women’s version of ExOfficio Give-N-Go Sport Mesh , which sagged a bit on our tester and pilled noticeably after just a few wears.

The Patagonia Active Hipster has soft reinforced openings for the legs that prevent wedgies or riding up. We also enjoyed how the underwear is seamless, reducing areas where chafing or rubbing can occur.

Close up of the stitching on a blue pair of Patagonia Active Hipster Briefs.

Some Amazon and REI reviewers complain that the fabric is thinner than on earlier models, but we found that to not be a problem.

Most of the reviewers who have concerns about the current Active Hipster compare it with previous models, noting that the material isn’t as soft, the waistband isn’t as thick, it doesn’t have as much coverage, or isn’t as durable. Our testers found the material to be soft and were satisfied with the coverage. Compared with the other underwear we tested, which are among the finest in the genre, the current model of Patagonia Active Hipster is still the best.

We noticed no loose seams or pilling issues so far, but will continue to test for durability. Patagonia has among the best return and repair policies in the industry, but the company does charge for a return label.

Since we first tested the Active Hipster briefs, Patagonia has done away with the cutaway tag in its underwear. (Tag info is now printed onto the fabric itself.) Our only remaining complaints are the limited range of color/print options (four at the time of publication), and that the sizing is not particularly inclusive (it goes no larger than XL).

A grey airism boxer brief and blue airism hipster panty hanging from an elastic drying line in a tree.

If you want to spend as little as possible without sacrificing performance, the Uniqlo Airism line lets you replace an entire underwear drawer on a tight budget, as long as you can deal with its slightly odd fit and less-effective odor-control treatment.

The Uniqlo Airism’s fit provides a comfortable amount of coverage in both the Boxer Brief and Seamless HipHugger cuts. The coverage aspect isn’t about modesty: We found that medium-coverage underwear stayed in place, and skimpier underwear gave wedgies over time. Similarly, the merino pairs we tested tended to bunch up from rubbing against our pants. The Airism underwear was also quite durable and held up through several handwashing cycles with no signs of wear. Travel gear reviewer Snarky Nomad loved them .

A close up of the stitching on a grey pair of uniqlo men's airism briefs.

After trying all the options, our male tester noted that the Uniqlo Airism could have been a touch more supportive in the front pouch, but liked them overall, concluding: “I love these boxers and I think they offer the best of both worlds for affordability and comfort.” But the fit wasn’t ideal compared with the more-expensive options we tested. We think this is a result of the shortened inseam (leg length) combined with a taller rise (the distance from the crotch to the waistband), which can cause different fit issues on different body types. And although our tester did not experience this, other user reviewers report that this also leads to the boxers bunching up in the back.

If you find that the normal-fit boxer briefs don’t cut it, Snarky Nomad recommends getting the low-rise version and going a size up. The result is that it doesn’t ride too low. He also finds that the fit is better, especially in the front pouch.

A close up of the stitching on a blue pair of Uniqlo womens airism underwear.

The Seamless HipHugger cut also offers an excellent balance of comfort, affordability, and performance. However, we’re also happy that women’s Airism panties come in three cuts (HipHugger, Bikini, and High-Rise Briefs). Unfortunately, the two cuts that were at one point available in a more extended range of sizes (HipHugger and Bikini) no longer come in XXL.

As would be expected for the price, Uniqlo’s return policy is not particularly generous. It accepts garments that are “new, unused, unwashed, unaltered” with tags still attached and with original receipt. You can’t return in-store purchases via mail, but online purchases do come with a prepaid return label.

The ExOfficio Men’s Classic Give-N-Go Brief wasn’t as soft as the Sport Mesh version. It also didn’t fit as well and physically looks more like travel underwear than the Sport Mesh version.

The quite-affordable Boody Men’s Original Boxers ran small for their sizes and the men’s waistband rolled too easily. The bamboo-based fabric is a viscose rayon derivative, making it among the slowest to dry in drying-time tests. It is quite packable and the least expensive of all the undies we tested except for the Uniqlo.

The Stance Mariner was a tester favorite in terms of comfort, but we discovered after a poor showing during the drying-time test that Stance’s proprietary ButterBlend fabric is a rayon derivative—a fabric similar to cotton. Despite superior fit and comfort that would make them a good choice for everyday wear, the Stance did not wick or dry as effectively as other pairs we tested, which made them difficult to remove after sweaty workouts.

The ExOfficio Give-N-Go Sport Mesh Hi Cut Brief felt soft, dried quickly, and wicked well, but didn’t stay in place as well as our picks. However, we do appreciate that the Sport Mesh is available in more colors and styles than any other brand we tested. (The Hi Cut Brief has, however, been discontinued.)

The Boody Hipster Bikini and Boyleg Briefs ran small for their sizes. As mentioned in the men’s competition, these are made of a viscose rayon derivative, explaining why it was among the slowest to dry in tests. It is quite packable and the least expensive of all the undies we tested except for the Uniqlo.

We also tested and dismissed men’s and women’s briefs and underwear from Arc’teryx, Lululemon, Smartwool, and UnderArmour that have since been discontinued.

Our previous runner-up pick, the Smartwool Women’s Merino Sport Seamless Bikini, has been replaced by the Women’s Intraknit Bikini . The fit is similar, but the wool content has dropped from 72% to 39%, and the fiber blend is now 39% lyocell. We’ll need to test the new version thoroughly to see how it performs before being able to recommend it.

We also plan to test new and updated options for men and women from ExOfficio, Icebreaker, REI Co-op, Ridge Merino, Smartwool, Tommy John, and Under Armour, and keeping an eye out for products that offer inclusive sizing.

The clothes you bring on a trip can really make or break your experience — and undergarments are no exception. Underwear is often an afterthought (but hopefully not forgotten) when packing, but having the right pieces will make an immense difference in your overall comfort, no matter where you're headed.

So, what's the best travel underwear? That depends on where you're going, which outfits you'll be wearing, the activities you have planned, and how much available space you have in your luggage. But generally speaking, lightweight, breathable, moisture-wicking materials are ideal.

With this in mind, we researched standout options for men and women and rounded up various styles worthy of bringing on your next getaway. Our favorite for women is Parade's ultra smooth and seamless Invisible Sculpt Hip Hugger. And for guys, we like the stretchy, structured Calvin Klein Icon Micro Boxer Brief. Whatever your preference, we’ve got you covered.

Best Travel Underwear for Women

Best overall, parade invisible sculpt hip hugger.

These exceptionally smooth and stretchy undies are endlessly comfy and versatile enough to wear with any outfit.

They run slightly small, so consider ordering one size up.

Our top choice for women is Parade's Invisible Sculpt Hip Hugger. These seamless panties are made of an exceptionally smooth and stretchy blend of polyamide and spandex. They're designed to offer a barely-there feel that conforms to the shape of your body and looks virtually undetectable underneath clothing. And the lining is certified-organic cotton to ensure breathability while preventing chafing.

These undies feature a versatile mid-rise cut and medium coverage. You can wear them with trousers, skirts, dresses, joggers – you name it. Made primarily of recycled materials by a company that prioritizes minimizing its carbon footprint, we also appreciate that they're eco-friendly. One thing to note is that the fit is slightly small, so consider ordering a size up unless you like more of a compressive feeling.

The Details: XS to 3XL | Polyamide, spandex, organic cotton | Machine wash, tumble dry

Best Breathable

Arq lou undies.

They're naturally soft and airy, with a classic bikini cut you can wear with just about anything.

The brand doesn't accept returns on underwear.

ARQ makes the most breathable underwear for women. Lou Undies are woven primarily from organic cotton, a naturally soft material that allows lots of air to pass through, with a small amount of spandex to make them comfortably stretchy.

They feature a low-rise bikini cut you can wear day or night with just about any ensemble. We also love that the inclusive size range goes all the way up to 4XL.

The Details: XXS to 4XL | Organic cotton, spandex | machine wash cold, line dry

Best Sweat-wicking

Fruit of the loom moisture-wicking panties.

These affordable panties draw sweat away from your skin to keep you dry and comfy throughout the day.

The thin material is prone to rolling down from the waist.

Looking for something that wicks away sweat? Fruit of the Loom Coolblend Panties might be your best bet. Woven from a blend of cotton, polyester, and spandex, these undies draw moisture away from your skin and keep you dry throughout the day.

This affordable four-pack comes with enough pairs to get you through a long weekend away. And the flattering mid-rise cut is versatile enough to wear with most outfits.

The Details: XS to 3XL | Cotton, polyester, spandex | Machine wash, tumble dry

Best Size-inclusive

Skims cheeky briefs.

The exceptionally flexible, buttery-soft fabric stretches to fit all bodies.

Popular colors and sizes often sell out quickly.

The Skims Fits Everybody line truly fits everybody. Not only are these briefs available in sizes XXS through 4XL, but they're also so exceptionally stretchy that they're basically guaranteed to fit.

The fabric is a buttery-soft, quick-drying blend of polyamide and elastane, and the lining is breathable cotton. There's also a super popular thong version of these panties if that's your preferred cut.

The Details: XXS to 4XL | Polyamide, elastane, cotton | Machine wash, tumble dry

Hanky Panky Original Rise Thong

This soft, stretchy universal thong feels nice against your skin and won't show through your clothes.

The one-size-fits-all design is supposed to fit women's sizes 4 through 14.

The best thong for women is Hanky Panky's Original Rise Thong. People swear by this cult-loved underwear, and it's easy to see why. The incredibly stretchy and soft lace feels good against the skin and won't show through your clothes, no matter what you're wearing.

The one-size-fits-all design takes the guesswork out of figuring out your size. Just bear in mind it's supposed to fit women ranging from sizes 4 to 14.

The Details: One size | Nylon, spandex, cotton | Hand wash, dry flat

Best Shaping

Spanx shaping panties thong.

The firm waistband holds you in without pinching or rolling and looks invisible under clothes.

To minimize the tight, compressive feeling, think about ordering a size up.

For underwear that holds you in, look no further than Spanx. The brand's Everyday Shaping Thong has a targeted waistband that cinches your belly and keeps things firmly in place without pinching or rolling.

With smooth materials and minimal stitching, it looks invisible under clothes — even form-fitting pieces made of thinner fabrics. There's also a brief version if you prefer a bit more coverage on the back.

The Details: XS to XL | Nylon, elastane, cotton | Machine wash warm, tumble dry low

Best Period

Saalt leakproof seamless high waist period underwear.

This underwear absorbs your flow and keeps you dry and leak-free while flattering your figure and holding in your waistline.

You may want to pack a laundry bag or sealable pouch to keep them out of the way after wearing them.

If you expect to be menstruating on your trip, Saalt has you covered. These period panties absorb your flow for an entire day, so you won't have to worry about leaks — or remember to bring a tampon in your bag.

They feature a four-way stretch that flexes to the shape of your body. Not only that, but the figure-flattering cut provides full coverage without bunching up under your pants, and the high waist holds you in when you're bloated.

The Details: XS to XXL | Lycra | Rinse, machine wash cold, hang dry

Best Travel Underwear for Men

Calvin klein boxer brief.


These super stretchy and supportive boxer-briefs are endlessly comfortable and breathable enough for any activity.

They'll take up slightly more room in your suitcase than regular briefs.

If you ask us, Calvin Klein makes the best men's travel underwear. The brand's Icon Micro Boxer Briefs are made of silky-soft microfiber (a blend of polyester and elastane), which is supremely stretchy and supportive but definitely not restricting. This pair is also notably breathable and moisture-wicking, making them an excellent choice for almost any activity.

Boasting an ergonomic fit, these boxer-briefs have a structured pouch and extended leg panels that promise to prevent chafing. Like all CK underwear for men, they feature the iconic logo waistband that subtly contrasts the fabric. A perfect cross between loose boxers and traditional briefs, this cut seems to be the most popular style among guys today, but bear in mind the extra material will take up slightly more room in your suitcase than regular briefs.

The Details: S to XL | Polyester, elastane | Machine wash, tumble dry

Mack Weldon AIRKNITx Trunk

Saks Fifth Avenue

The mesh-like fabric is airy, moisture-wicking, and stretchy, keeping you comfortable and dry throughout the day.

They don't have a fly that opens like most men's underwear.

The most breathable men's underwear comes from Mack Weldon. The brand's Airknitx Trunks are made of a mesh-like fabric woven from a blend of polyamide, polyester, and elastane.

The material is not only comfortably airy but also stretchy and moisture-wicking, so it helps draw sweat away from your skin. This pair doesn't have a fly that opens, but if that's not a concern, you really can't go wrong.

The Details: S to XXL | Polyamide, polyester, elastane | Machine wash cold, tumble dry low

lululemon Built to Move Boxer 5"

These boxer-briefs are made of a moisture-wicking, quick-drying fabric that keeps its shape and won't ride up.

The fit is slightly tight, so consider ordering a size up.

If you're planning on working out while you're away or just want to make sure you stay comfortably dry while exploring a new city, go with Lululemon. The Built to Move Boxer is made of the brand's Luxtreme fabric, a blend of lycra and elastane that wicks away sweat and dries quickly. 

The material feels cool to the touch and boasts a four-way stretch that keeps its shape and won't ride up. That said, men's underwear from Lululemon runs slightly tight, so consider ordering a size up.

The Details: S to XXL | Nylon, lycra elastane | Machine wash cold, tumble dry low

Uniqlo AIRism Ultra Seamless Boxer Brief

This size-inclusive pair is made of a special fabric that's not only incredibly stretchy but also notably smooth, soft, and breathable.

They don't have much structure and aren't as supportive as other styles.

Uniqlo Airism Boxer Briefs are made of a notably smooth, soft, and breathable fabric that feels cool to the touch and dries remarkably fast. They're also completely seamless to prevent lines under your clothes.

Designed to fit guys of all body types, this pair is available in sizes small through 3XL. While the forgiving fabric is extremely comfortable and stretchy, we should note it doesn't have much structure and may not be as supportive as other styles.

The Details: S to 3XL | Nylon, spandex | Machine wash cold/gentle, tumble dry

Best Boxer Briefs

Unbound merino merino wool boxer briefs.

Unbound Merino

These wool boxer-briefs are naturally breathable, sweat-wicking, and odor-resistant.

The steep price might be hard to justify for just one pair.

Unbound Merino makes the best boxer-briefs for men. This pair is made of — you guessed it — merino wool, a naturally breathable, moisture-wicking, thermoregulating material that keeps you dry without overheating.

Wool has antimicrobial properties , too, meaning it won't harbor odor-causing bacteria, so you can count on staying fresh, wherever you're headed. These boxer-briefs also have a small amount of nylon and spandex to enhance durability and stretch.

The Details: S to XXL | Merino wool, nylon, spandex | Machine wash warm/gentle, tumble dry

Best Briefs

Tommy john second skin brief.

These briefs are breathable and stretchy, with a waistband that doesn't pinch, bunch, or roll.

The leg holes might be slightly too wide on some men.

For men who prefer briefs, we recommend Tommy John. The brand's Second Skin Brief is woven from modal (a breathable cotton alternative derived from beech trees) and spandex for some added stretch.

The material resists pilling and feels silky-soft against the skin, while the supportive waistband stays in place without pinching, bunching, or rolling. Though the leg holes might be too wide for some body types, you can generally rely on a comfy fit that doesn't ride up or need adjusting throughout the day.

The Details: S to XXL | Modal, polyester, spandex | Machine wash cold, tumble dry low

Best Boxers

Bombas men's cotton modal boxer.

These boxers are relaxed but not too baggy, so they won't bunch up or look bulky under clothing.

The extra fabric will take up a bit more space in your luggage.

If you're partial to boxers, you'll appreciate this pair from Bombas. The Cotton Modal Boxer features a modern relaxed fit that's not too baggy, so you won't have to worry about it bunching up or looking bulky under your pants.

As for the fabric, you're looking at a naturally cooling and immensely soft fabric with just the right amount of stretch. The only thing to note about wearing boxers while traveling is that the extra fabric will take up a little more space in your suitcase.

The Details: S to 3XL | Modal, cotton, elastane | Machine wash cold, tumble dry low

Tips for Buying Travel Underwear

Consider the material.

When buying travel underwear, pay attention to the material. Natural materials like cotton, modal, and wool tend to be the most breathable and have natural moisture-wicking abilities. Wool is also antimicrobial, meaning it keeps odor-causing bacteria at bay.

Additionally, you'll find many pairs made of sweat-wicking, quick-drying synthetic fabrics, like polyester, polyamide, lycra, and nylon. If you like a stretchy feel, look for underwear made partially of spandex or elastane.

Think about your intended activity

You should also think about where you're going and what you'll be doing. For instance, if you're spending time in a hot climate, dancing at a wedding, or exercising while on vacation, sweat-wicking, quick-drying underwear is ideal.

On the other hand, if you're planning on dressing up for a special occasion and want to look your best, you might opt for a shaping pair or something seamless that won't show underneath your clothes.

While a travel bra can be worn multiple days on your trip without washing, you should pack one pair of underwear for each day you'll be on vacation, plus one spare, just in case. So if your trip is five days long, you'd pack six pairs. However, if you're able to do laundry while you're away and want to pack light, you might consider cutting this number in half.

The best way to pack underwear for travel is with packing cubes, which compress the fabric into a small pouch you can easily fit into your suitcase. Otherwise, men can tightly roll their underwear and tuck it into a corner of their luggage. And women can usually zip theirs into a side pocket of their suitcase.

womens travel knickers

The right underwear can make or break a trip. Some travelers might view this to be a trivial factor, but if you want your trip to be as convenient, stress-free, and comfortable as possible, then seeking out the best quick-dry women’s underwear for travel is crucial.

While it might seem easier to just buy a set of cheap, cotton underwear right before your trip, it can actually cause more discomfort and inconvenience in the long-run. In addition to being easier to clean, quick-dry underwear often has naturally moisture-wicking and odor-preventing capabilities. Obviously, these things are especially important if you plan on going hiking or trekking, or spending days (or weeks) away from home. And, since you can simply wash your quick-dry underwear in the sink and hang them dry, you don't have to pack as many pairs in the first place, thus reducing your travel load.

When choosing the best pair of quick-dry underwear for you, there are a few things to consider, like fabric and the climate you'll be in. Synthetic blends with nylon or polyester are the most popular options, as they're extremely breathable, while merino wool, which is naturally anti-microbial, will be your best bet if you're headed somewhere cold.

No matter where you’re going or how long you’re traveling for, it’s important to alleviate yourself of any possible discomfort or extra work. That being said, here are six pairs of the best quick-drying underwear that will significantly simplify your travel experience.

A Pair Of Breathable, Odor-Preventing Underwear That Keeps You Feeling Fresh At All Times

ExOfficio Women’s Give-N-Go Bikini Briefs

With an odor-eliminating mesh fabric that wicks away moisture and allows for excellent airflow, these breathable bikini briefs keep you cool and comfortable even on the longest and most grueling days of travel. The durable fabric is also easy to wash and quick to dry, so you won't need to bring more than a couple pairs on your trip. They come in a variety of pretty colors — including nude, black, coral, and purple — and boast a near-perfect rating with over 1,000 reviews. "They aren't joking when they say you can hike with [just] two pairs... [I] wore a pair, washed it, and hung it by hand, wore the other, did the same that night, rotating them. Awesome," read one. "I bought three of these for a trip to Italy as I would need to wash and dry overnight while traveling. They worked very well. I normally wear 100 [percent] cotton but these were comfortable and breathed quite well. They roll up and pack much smaller than my normal pair that they don't take up any extra room," read another.

  • Available sizes: XS – XXL

Another Breathable Option With A Near-Perfect Amazon Rating

Fruit of the Loom Women’s Breathable Bikini Panties

The unique ventilated fabric of these breathable micro-mesh underwear makes it easy to stay cool and dry all day long. With colors like black, grey, purple, and white, as well as cut options including low-rise brief, boyshort, and bikini, you can choose your ideal style and fit. The underwear also have over a thousand reviews on Amazon, with one reviewer raving that they remained cool and dry even during a canoeing trip: "It was 95 [degrees] out in south Louisiana with high humidity. I wasn't planning on getting [in] the water but did, and they dried very quickly, better than any swim bottom I've ever worn." With a tag-free design and a smooth waistband, this four-pack of breathable underwear provides comfort at all times.

  • Available Sizes: S – 3X

A Set Of Underwear That Eliminates Panty Lines And Has Four-Way Stretch For Peak Comfort

Balanced Tech Women’s Seamless Bikini Panties

In addition to being able to easily wash these quick-dry underwear on the go thanks to the breathable polyester and nylon fabric they're made of, they're also a great option when you’re looking for a flexible and supportive fit. They're designed to provide full coverage without riding up, and the four-way stretch of the fabric conforms to your body for excellent support, while also allowing for freedom of movement. Like the Fruit Of The Loom underwear, above, this option has tagless labeling to eliminate itching and chafing, but also features smooth and seamless edges that eliminate panty lines, making it much easier to pair these underwear with just about any outfit in your suitcase.

  • Available sizes: XS - XL

A Pair Of Merino Wool Underwear That Naturally Adjust To Your Body Temperature

Woolly Clothing Co Women’s Merino Wool Hiphugger Brief

Although you probably never would have guessed it, merino wool makes for a surprisingly great pair of travel underwear, because it’s naturally anti-microbial and moisture-wicking. These merino wool briefs are designed to stretch and adjust to your movements, but without the overheating or bunching that can sometimes happen with cotton underwear. By naturally adjusting to your body temperature, they'll keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold. The fabric is soft to touch and non-itchy, so you can have all-day comfort in addition to flexibility. But keep in mind that while it’s easy to wash and quick to air dry, merino wool can’t be placed in a dryer.

  • Available sizes: S– XL

Women On The Road

How To Choose The Best Travel Underwear For Women

Writing about best ladies underwear for travel isn’t necessarily my first choice for a topic but let’s face it: it’s an important one that can make or break your trip.

Sound a bit excessive?

Think about it. If your outer clothes are uncomfortable, you can stop and change. It’s a bit harder with what you’re wearing  under  your clothes –  privacy isn’t always available . Whatever has happened to that underwear will have to wait until you get back to your room.

Yes, of course you can wear your regular underwear when you travel and that’s fine for walking around the city. But if you’re going hiking or plan to do anything more strenuous than stalking the Mona Lisa, purchasing the  best travel underwear  for women makes perfect sense.

Many ladies travel underwear choices offer things like   light, practical and washable options , all of which make a huge difference in packing and traveling!

So let’s look at what is travel underwear, why you need it, examples of different kinds (depending on your travel style and body), and I’ll provide some travel underwear reviews to help you feel confident in picking the best panties for travel.

Comparison chart: top women’s travel underwear

Best women’s travel underwear: here’s the skinny.

All the above travel panties are good travel buys and it’s hard to make a decision, so I’ve highlighted some of these pairs for you here – those I consider to be some of the best underwear for travelling.

womens travel knickers

  • For travellers who prefer boyshort coverage AND natural fibers, consider these. Although they do include nylon and spandex, these are primarily made from organically-grown bamboo (a sustainable plant fiber). The price is less than half the cost of ExOfficio panties, making them easier on your pocket book. They only come in basic “boring” colors, and hit mid-rise height (just above the hips). They do tend to run small, so give yourself some breathing room to prevent chafing or binding. If synthetic materials tend to irritate you, try these instead. The biggest drawback? Like my favorite cotton panties, they just don’t dry as quickly as purely-synthetic products.
  • PROS: Made from natural fibers (bamboo) | Comfortable silk travel underwear feel | Inexpensive | Breathable | Good for sensitive skin
  • CONS: Run small | Limited color choices | Not quick-drying

ANLIQI Quick Dry Womens Underwear for Travel Briefs Panties 4-Pack Full Coverage Moisture Wicking Hipster No Ride Up Comfy Undies (4D,S)

  • We all have our favorite travel underwear - and ANLIQI is mine. I used an earlier model (which I dont think is available anymore but these are very similar) on my one-year cross-Africa trip and I had two pairs. They both withstood constant washing - I washed one pair every night, so thats about 170 washes in a year per pair. They kept their shape, unbelievably! Most important when youre constantly on the go is that they dry very quickly - overnight indoors for sure, but after a few hours in a draft. When youre packing and unpacking daily, as I was, this is an irreplaceable advantage. These keep you cool and fresh, too, even in the hottest African tropical weather. Heading for a long trip but need to travel light? Get two of these.
  • PROS: Keep their shape | Breathable | Very quick-drying panties | Lightweight | Anti-bacterial fabric | Moisture-wicking
  • CONS: Not particularly attractive

Best women’s underwear for travel: how to tell your briefs from your thongs

First things first: when you choose women’s travel underwear,  consider the style .

Brands like ExOfficio offer panties made from the same moisture-wicking, odor-controlling material, but with different levels of coverage. Which one is right for you? Check out this list to learn more.

NOTE: Definitions often vary by country/region, and there is always some overlap between styles depending on the manufacturer. This is a quick guide, but read reviews to learn more about how a particular pair tends to fit.

Classic/Full-Cut Brief

These are probably what you imagine when someone says “underwear” (or pants, panties, undies or whatever you call them). Often referred to as “granny panties,” these fully cover your bottom (and front) and depending on the pair, the band sits well above your hips or even above the belly button.  Classic and comfortable , these are almost always a sensible option. They’ll take up more space in your bag, but that’s about the only travel-related downside.

High-Cut Brief

Like the classic brief, these provide  full bottom coverage  and rise up on the stomach, but the leg openings are cut higher towards the waistband. This reveals more skin in the front, while keeping full coverage in the back.

Click here to read more reviews

As the name implies, these are briefs that  sit at hip-level . You still get medium back/bottom coverage, but with less fabric up around your midsection. These are a great choice if you prefer low-rise trousers, or if standard briefs tend to cut into your tummy. They still offer enough coverage to keep your comfortable during a hike, but will also save space overall.

See Amazon’s Choice for Best Hipster Travel Underwear

Essentially  a hipster with a narrower waistband . Again, great for anyone who wears low-rise pants or simply dislikes extra fabric around their middle. These are probably the best compromise between comfort and space-saving.

See Amazon’s Choice For Best Bikini Travel Underwear

Because only men can wear shorts? Despite the sexist name, these women’s underwear  closely resemble men’s boxer briefs . The fabric is skin-tight like normal panties, but these look more like shorts rather than bikini bottoms. Most sit on or below your hips, and many women love the full bottom coverage, while others dislike that the legs sometimes ride, roll or bunch. They’ll take up more space in your bag, but otherwise they make great undergarments.

Not to be crass, but these are bikini panties that  show off a lot more cheek ! They aren’t as revealing as a thong, and offer more coverage to your undercarriage. Women often wear these under jeans or trousers because you’re less likely to see panty lines, but you still feel like you’re wearing underwear. They save space, for sure, just make sure they stay put and don’t leave you with a wedgie!

(Another name for this style is the “tanga”: Although some manufacturers consider these to be two different styles of underwear, others use the terms interchangeably. If anything,  the tanga provides even less coverage  than the cheeky.)

See Different Cheeky Style Travel Underwear Here

These come in various degrees of tinyness, but the central marker of a thong is  frontal coverage and an exposed rear . Some thongs have wider waistbands than others, and those connected with just a string are called g-strings. While these will certainly save space in your bag, I wouldn’t bet on them for comfort. And, you can’t wick away moisture with so little fabric.

Women’s disposable underwear

One more thing: on a very short trip,  women’s   disposable underwear for travel  might be worth considering. You can actually wash some of the models once or twice so they’re not one-time wear only (the environment thanks you). 

The following are reputable and well-liked:

  • Starly 100% Disposable Cotton High-Cut Briefs

What to look for in travel undies

Not all travel underwear are alike, so here’s what you should look for.

  • Best quick-dry women’s underwear : When you’re traveling, the last thing you want to cart around is soggy underwear so yes, quick dry women’s underwear is a good idea. Women’s underwear that dries quickly is made of modern synthetics that are so performing you can wash and wring your undies after dinner and wear them again for breakfast. (I personally prefer cotton for comfort but sadly they take too long to dry.)  Click here for the best women’s quick dry travel underwear
  • Comfort:  If it’s hot you certainly don’t want the elastics to pinch and chafe, around your thighs or your waist. (Plus ill-fitting undies  can be bad for your health !)  Click here for the best women’s underwear for hot weather
  • Form : Make sure those elastics are sturdy and last as long as your trips. Saggy elastics are just as uncomfortable as tightly gripping ones. The elastic should last at least as long as your trip!
  • Fibers : You’ll probably want something that breathes – and most modern fabrics do, while wicking sweat from your body and keeping you comfortably cool. Some panties have  anti-microbial properties , useful when you can’t change as often as you’d like. Wicking properties are important to control sweating. 

Travel underwear, vintage, hanging off a clothes line

  • Colors : A pair that matches your skin tone is the most versatile and reduces the risk of visibility through light fabrics. You can of course spring for something red or fuschia or anything under the sun – just avoid packing white pants. 
  • Style : Boyshort, thongs, bikini, hipster, brief? This comes down to personal preference, and there’s no “right” answer. Boyshorts and full-cut briefs take up the most space, while thongs and bikinis can fit almost anywhere. But don’t pack tiny underwear just to leave more room in your bag: you’ll regret it a million times if they aren’t comfortable.
  • Easy to wash : It’s hard to tell before you actually try to wash a pair because a lot depends on the soap you use or the hardness of water but yes, when you travel, your undies should wash with ease.

In addition to the bottom − known as underpants, panties or travel knickers, depending on the country − there’s also a top called a camisole or vest (you’ll find several on  this page ).  The best camisoles for travel are made of wicking material and mostly used in colder weather.

When I travel, I sometimes take along a camisole (if I’m heading into the cold) and  2-3 pairs of travel women’s underwear : two if I plan to wash a pair every night, three if I’m feeling a bit lazy. If I’m washing a pair each night, you can see how important it is that they dry quickly!

I bet you thought it was a lot easier to choose the best travel undies!

See the chart below for our Crop Style Bras.

If you're not a fan of pulling a Crop Bra over your head we we recommend stepping into it and gently pulling it up over your hips using fingers not finger nails and then popping the straps over your shoulders.

All our knickers are designed for full coverage with generous fabric allowances and great stretch and recovery. How knickers fit is a very personal preference.

Our knickers are true to size but if you are at the top of a size range and prefer a looser fit then we recommend sizing up.

womens travel knickers

True to size our shorts and leggings have fabulous stretch.

Even though extremely stretchy, if you are at the top of a size range and prefer a less firm fit we recommend sizing up.

Our shapewear is designed to be firm fitting yet comfortable and non-constricting so you can wear it all day! For our gentle firming underwear stay within your size range. If you are between sizes and looking at our firmer 'Curve Control' range then you may wish to size up.

Our best tip for getting into any shapewear is to step into it as the widest part of our body is our shoulders so even shapewear tops are easier to get into by stepping in and gently pulling it up the body being careful not to put fingernails through the fabric.

Keep reading to learn more about how we test underwear and for a helpful shopping guide, but first, here are our top women's underwear picks.

An elevated version of the basic brief, this style from Natori features delicate lace trim and a lower waistline for a more feminine flair. Testers gave this pair perfect scores for comfort, highlighting the "buttery soft" and lightweight feel of the material, with one tester raving that she "honestly forgot that they were even there" when wearing them. While testers were skeptical that the lace would feel uncomfy or dig in, they were pleasantly surprised by the smooth and stretchy feel.

Testers also loved the fit, sharing that the underwear stayed in place all day long without bunching or restricting movement, even during workout classes. The briefs also earned high ratings for looking great under clothes, and testers said the underwear offered the "perfect amount of coverage."

When we evaluated stretch recovery in our Textiles Lab tests, the underwear returned to its original shape without sagging, but when we evaluated washability, we noted heavy linting after laundering. The brand recommends hand washing the underwear to keep them in peak shape.

With three pairs in a pack, this underwear from Maidenform is priced at under $7 a piece — a total steal. Despite the low price, the underwear earned top marks in our evaluations, outperforming pairs from popular brands that cost double.

The underwear received high ratings for its attractive design and comfortable feel. Testers loved the cut, describing it as "flattering" and sharing that they felt confident wearing the high-leg style. They also enjoyed the high waistline and appreciated the slightly compressive feel of the underwear, comparing them to a subtler and comfier version of shapewear.

This pair is made of a smooth and stretchy material, so testers loved wearing them for everything from a workout class to working in the office and even said they were comfortable enough to wear to bed. The underwear isn't seamless, though, so testers noted that they had to be mindful of what pants they wore to avoid unwanted underwear lines.

The Aerie Smoothez underwear line is popular among GH Institute analysts because the material is so "buttery soft and smooth." One analyst shared that she exclusively buys underwear from this line and says, "They're the most comfortable underwear I've ever worn." The brand carries other styles like thongs, cheeky panties and boyshorts made of the same material, but our testers especially love the boybrief style and describe the cut and crossover waist as "super flattering."

While the material doesn't dig in or cause irritation, some testers had issues with it rolling down or bunching on the hips and said the pair becomes more noticeable under clothing when that happens. We haven't formally evaluated this style for washability in the Textiles Lab, but we have laundered other underwear from the brand, and they have held up well without major shrinkage or changes in appearance.

When you're wearing a bodycon dress or a fitted skirt, a pair of seamless underwear like this one from Bombas is the key to avoiding pesky panty lines. This underwear is made of a stretchy nylon and elastane blend that testers say feels smoother and lighter than other pairs they've tried. Our testers also appreciate that the inside of the leg openings and waistband are lined with textured velvet for a gripping effect designed to keep the underwear in place without rolling.

Some testers noted that while the legs and waistband didn't roll or pinch, the underwear rode up in the back, leading to wedgies, but other testers said the underwear stayed put under their clothes. We love that there's a cotton and elastane gusset inside for a more comfortable, breathable feel and that, according to our testers, the fuller coverage hipster cut still looks invisible under clothes. This pair also received high scores for maintaining its shape and looking great during stretch recovery and washability tests.

Designed with a traditional bikini cut and fuller coverage back, these underwear from Harper Wilde are ideal for everyday wear, with one tester sharing that they have become "a reliable staple in [her] closet." The underwear is made of a cotton, modal and spandex blend material that testers said felt substantial yet breathable, and they gave it top scores for comfort.

Testers highlighted that the underwear didn't ride up, cause annoying wedgies or roll down, and they loved the waistband, emphasizing that it didn't pinch or cause irritation. While testers said the leg openings were roomy and didn't restrict movement, some said the seams around the legs were thick and more noticeable than other styles they tried. When we tested stretch recovery in Textiles Lab tests, we were impressed by how well the underwear maintained its shape.

This thong from Tommy John with a barely there feel is the perfect pair to sport to the gym. Testers loved wearing the underwear to their workouts and said the minimalistic design was completely hidden under their leggings and yoga pants. Made of a mesh material, the underwear is super breathable and light as a feather, and testers said that they dried almost immediately after getting wet or sweaty.

Testers also appreciated that the underwear stayed in place when they were active and felt comfy while they were relaxing. When we washed the underwear in the Textiles Lab, there was no noticeable shrinkage or major wear, but we did note a few loose threads around the seams. Our testers who laundered their underwear reported no issues with washing and said the underwear looked as good as new after several cycles.

While thongs have gotten a bad rap for being uncomfy, this one from trendy intimates brand Skims is seriously soft, stretchy and lightweight for a next-to-nothing feel that GH experts and testers love. One tester emphasized, "This is the first thong where I even forget I am wearing it." The underwear is cut to sit on the hip without digging in, and testers say it stays in place throughout the day without falling down.

It comes in an inclusive range of ten "nude" shades, making it easier to find a pair that matches your skin tone for a camouflaged look under your clothing. Some testers said the seams were noticeable under tight pants or dresses, but most testers rated the underwear highly for looking great under clothes. While we haven't evaluated washability in the Textiles Lab, GH experts and testers who have washed their pairs at home say they come out of the wash looking "like new" with no snags or shrinkage.

Testers loved the classic yet sexy look of this string bikini from Victoria's Secret. It's made of a smooth synthetic material that testers said felt lightweight and breathable , and we love that there's a 100% cotton gusset for comfort. When we washed the underwear in the Lab and evaluated them for stretch recovery, they maintained their shape without shrinking or stretching out, and testers agreed that the underwear looked great after laundering them at home.

According to testers, the underwear is "cheeky" with moderate coverage in the front and back — somewhere between a thong and a typical bikini style. The strings are thin but comfortable without digging in, and testers loved that they could adjust them with the metal slides to achieve the perfect fit. Several testers did note that the metal hardware was visible under some styles of clothing, especially formfitting and light-colored bottoms.

If you're looking for something a little more feminine and flirty but don't want to sacrifice comfort, Hanky Panky has you covered. The brand's lace underwear is a favorite of GH analysts and testers who love the delicate look and soft feel. In our evaluations, we've found that lace underwear can sometimes be scratchy and stiff, but that's not the case with this pair. The underwear received perfect scores for comfort, with multiple testers emphasizing that this lacy style is more comfortable than any other thongs they have worn.

Testers were a bit skeptical of the one-size-fits-all sizing, but our testers of various sizes were impressed by how well it hugged their curves without feeling saggy or restrictive. The underwear performed well in Textiles Lab stretch recovery tests, returning to its initial shape after being stretched, but we did note considerable wrinkling in our washability evaluations. When our testers laundered the underwear at home, they said it held up well and looked great.

Woxers are boxer-brief-style underwear that are designed to fit a woman's body better than boxer briefs made exclusively for men . The medium-rise underwear has a more streamlined fit with no fly opening and a secure waistband that, according to testers, doesn't pinch, dig in or roll down. Testers said the underwear stretched nicely over their curves and stayed in place all day long, but they did find the leg openings to feel a bit snug.

The boxers are made of an ultra-thin and lightweight material that impressed GH analysts and testers who shared sentiments like, "The fabric was breathable and just the right thickness," and, "It barely feels like I'm wearing underwear." When we washed this pair in the Lab, there were no major changes in appearance or shrinkage, and testers agreed that the underwear held up well and felt just as soft and smooth after laundering. If you love your Woxers as much as our testers did, there's even a subscription option so you'll never be without a fresh pair.

Knix Leakproof Bikini

Leakproof Bikini

Knix's leakproof underwear is made of a silky smooth nylon and Lycra material that testers say feels just like a pair of regular underwear but can absorb up to three tampons' worth of fluids during your period. When we tested absorbency in the Textiles Lab by pouring viscous liquid on the gusset from different angles, we were impressed by how much this pair was able to soak up despite it being one of the thinner styles. Our testers also appreciated the lack of bulk, with one sharing, "It was the most comfortable and most discreet period underwear I've tried."

Most testers gave the underwear high scores for fit and comfort, but some said the waistband of the underwear felt loose and shifted down throughout the day, requiring regular re-adjustments. We love that, unlike most styles of period underwear we've tested, these ones are machine washable for easy cleaning. If you have a heavier or lighter flow or prefer underwear with more or less coverage, Knix carries tons of different styles made of the same comfy, easy-care materials.

Evelyn & Bobbie High-Waisted Thong

High-Waisted Thong

While most thongs sit lower on the hips for minimal coverage, this one from Evelyn & Bobbie is designed with a high waistline for a more substantial look and feel. Testers loved the high rise of the thong and appreciated the wider cut of the cotton-lined gusset, sharing that they felt supported and secure when wearing this pair.

When our testers were asked to rate the appearance of the underwear, they gave it perfect scores and said it looked seamless under clothing, but if you do wear a pair of lower-rise pants, the waistband may peek out. This style is available in just two sizes — one meant to fit 0-14 and another for 16-24 — but our size small and medium testers who tried the 0-14 size were impressed by how well it conformed to their shape. According to testers, the underwear also sits comfortably on the hips without rolling or riding up.

How we test underwear for women

line break

The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab is composed of fiber scientists and apparel experts who test all types of intimates, such as bras, socks and shapewear. W e recently conducted an extensive underwear test, including over 90 pairs of men's, women's and gender-neutral underwear , gathering thousands of data points for review. Here's how we evaluate underwear to find the best of the best:

✔️ Washability: We repeatedly wash each pair of underwear according to its care instructions and analyze the underwear for signs of wear, changes in appearance and shrinkage.

gh analyst clamping underwear for stretch recovery testing

✔️ Stretch recovery: Underwear should stretch to conform to your body for the perfect fit, but it's important that it maintains its shape after the elastic has been stretched. We evaluate stretch recovery by marking a section on the underwear, stretching it out and clamping it into place for two hours. We then release the clamps, wait a minute and measure the markings to determine how well the underwear was able to return to its initial shape. After one hour, we remeasure and then score the results.

✔️ Wear tests: Most importantly, we share underwear with consumer testers with a variety of body types who are able to try the pairs out for themselves and provide us with feedback. Testers share their thoughts on everything from fit to comfort to appearance under clothing to the ease of putting the underwear on and taking them off. We also allow our testers the opportunity to share notes about their experiences laundering the underwear and expand upon what they specifically like and dislike about each pair.

What to look for when shopping for the best underwear for women


Here are the key features to look for before purchasing a new pair of underwear:

✔️ Style: There's a variety of different types of underwear for women. Here are the most common options:

  • Brief : A basic style that gives you good coverage in both the front and the back. There are variations within this style, like a brief with a high-rise waist or a high-cut leg opening.
  • Thong : With the least amount of coverage, a thong has just a thin strip of fabric in the back to prevent panty lines from showing through clothes.
  • Bikin i: It looks similar to a brief, but there's less coverage. It's usually a lower rise and has higher leg openings.
  • Hipster : Like the bikini, this is a low-rise style that sits on the hips. It has more coverage around the hips with wider panels of fabric.
  • Boy shorts : This one offers the most coverage and looks like a cross between underwear and shorts.
  • Cheeky : It has more back coverage than a thong, but still less than a bikini.
  • French cut: With a higher cut on the hips, this style is high-waisted and is designed to elongate the legs.

✔️ Material: Comfort is key when it comes to material. These are some of the most common options:

  • Cotton: Soft, breathable and absorbent, cotton is a great option for those with sensitive skin. While most underwear today is made with synthetic materials, you might find that they have cotton gussets for comfort.
  • Nylon: Nylon is a synthetic fiber that's durable and stretchy. It has a silkier feel and is often used for seamless styles.
  • Modal: A regenerated fiber made from chemically processed plant matter, modal is buttery soft and super lightweight.
  • Spandex, elastane and Lycra: This is what gives your underwear its stretching and conforming abilities. These fibers are typically blended with other fiber types like nylon or modal for a stretchy yet comfortable feel.

Major winter storm brings blizzard conditions, making travel dangerous during busy holiday

A major blizzard-fueling winter storm is sweeping across the Plains and upper Midwest with heavy snow, freezing rain and strong winds, making for dangerous travel conditions during the busy holiday week.

Blizzards with wind gusts up to 75 mph Tuesday could topple trees and power lines, and bring whiteout conditions that make travel "difficult to near impossible," the National Weather Service said. Blizzards happen when blowing snow and sustained strong winds combine for at least three hours and reduce visibility to a quarter-mile or less.

"Widespread travel disruptions are likely across the region," the weather service warned, adding that the storm will continue to impact a large swath of the north-central US through Tuesday.

Parts of Nebraska, South Dakota, Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming are under blizzard warnings Tuesday.

Residents were cautioned to avoid travel, but if they must be on the road, to bring survival kits and stay in their vehicles in case they get stranded.

The storm was hitting parts of the region Monday, and driving conditions were "rapidly deteriorating across the state," the Nebraska State Department of Transportation said that day.

Cars were colliding and sliding off roads Monday in Nebraska, where tractor-trailers jackknifed and got stuck on eastbound Interstate 80 near York in the morning and early afternoon, the Nebraska State Patrol said.

The heaviest snowfall was seen Monday across the border of the Dakotas, stretching north over parts of I-94. While snowfall began to weaken across I-90 on Monday afternoon, visibility dropped as snow continued to blow over the roadway.

I-90 was closed in both directions Monday night on a more than 200-mile stretch between Mitchell and Wall, the South Dakota Department of Transportation said. Eastbound lanes between Wall and Rapid City - about 50 miles - were also closed, the department said. The westbound lanes were expected to remain open "unless weather and road conditions change."

"Motorists should not use secondary highways to avoid Interstate closures. Significantly reduced visibilities and blizzard-like conditions will make travel very dangerous during this storm system," the department said.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol said it responded to several crashes in Watertown as ice and snow blanketed roadways.

"Please slow down, don't use your cruise control, and always wear your seatbelt. Snow plows are out, please give them room to work," the South Dakota Highway Patrol urged residents.

Snowfall of 1-2 inches per hour was possible in some areas, the weather service said Monday afternoon. More than 12 inches likely will have fallen from south-central South Dakota into northern Nebraska by storm's end, according to the weather service.

In parts of the northern Plains, a mix of sleet and freezing rain could fuel scattered power outages, and make for dangerously icy roads and sidewalks, forecasters said.

The storm will gradually weaken by Tuesday night, but a "wintry mix is likely to persist into Wednesday" across portions of the northern Plains and upper Midwest, the weather service said.

A driver took a plunge into the East River early Sunday morning after her car came to a fiery crash on the FDR Drive, according to the NYPD.

Police said the 23-year-old woman behind the wheel was traveling northbound through Manhattan when she crashed at East 102nd Street on Christmas Eve.

After her car went up in flames, police said the woman managed to safely get out. Investigators believe she hadn't suffered any injuries, but for some reason chose next to jump into the river.

I’m living on a cruise ship for 9 months — my double mastectomy gave me a new outlook on life.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

She’s sailing away from her troubles.

After enduring a double mastectomy, not to mention the loss of both parents to cancer in their 60s, Angela Linderman found herself thinking a lot about longevity — and how nothing is guaranteed.

And so, the 38 year-old did something many people push back into their golden years — she took a cruise. A 274-day cruise to be exact.

“There is no way I’m waiting to do s–t till I retire,” the freelance marketing consultant told her followers in a now-viral TikTok video . “Because that’s not promised to any of us.”

Linderman, from the Pacific Northwest, flew to Miami earlier this month and hopped aboard Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas. She won’t be back on dry land for good until late 2024.

The bold step came after a wave of harsh life lessons a few years back, beginning when her father was diagnosed with prostate cancer, followed by her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis. Both died at the age of 65.

Then in 2021, the same year that her mother passed away, Linderman learned that she inherited the BRCA2 gene mutation, which increases her risk of developing breast, ovarian and skin cancer.

To reduce her chances of also being diagnosed with cancer, Linderman underwent a double mastectomy, removing all breast tissue and her nipples. Then she had implants done. She also needs to have her ovaries removed.

Grappling with her parents’ passing at the age most Americans retire, not to mention her own increased risk of also being diagnosed with cancer, Linderman told The Post that she decided not to wait another minute to see the world, like she’d always dreamed.

“I’m going to do the things that I can do now and not put them off,” Linderman told The Post.

She explained that with BRCA and losing both of her parents at 65, she knows “retirement is not a guarantee.”

To make her dream come true, Linderman dipped into a pool of life insurance money she received after her parents died, booking an Ultimate World Cruise itinerary on Serenade, which will allow her to visit more than 60 countries in less than a year.

“My family’s genetics aren’t lining me up to let me have a terribly long life so doing all the things I can now is kind of the motto,” Linderman said earlier on a TikTok video.

The freelance marketer will be continuing to work her social media job remotely, as she has done since 2019, but decided to cut back to part-time to enjoy as much free time as possible as she travels around the world.

“It’s not a nine month vacation,” Linderman told The Post. “This is nine months of my life.”

And she’s doing more than sharing her journey via social media — a brother and his children will be traveling with her.

The months-long cruise set off from Miami on December 10 and is scheduled to sail around the world and visit all seven continents, although passengers will content themselves with a view of Antartica, rather than a land tour. A whopping 11 Wonders of the World can be experienced — Linderman plans on seeing several, including Macchu Pichu and Petra.

While passengers were allowed to book for shorter portions of the trip, over 600 are committed for the full nine months.

Serenade, built in 2003 and last refurbished in 2012, lacks the extreme bells and whistles of Royal Caribbean’s newest ships, but features luxuries like a rock climbing wall and a pool with a retractable glass ceiling to allow enjoyment in all weather.

While cruisers can continue to join the ship for shorter segments as it voyages around the globe — at a cost of about $1,500 per person for two weeks, depending on length and destination — those looking to sail the full nine months faced a hefty price tag starting at $88,000 and going up to $1.2 million per person.

Angie Linderman

TikTok has been flooded with videos of people sharing their adventures during the first few days of the trip — Linderman included.

Her following has grown from under 100 to over 153,000 in the first two weeks of the trip as she’s shared insights into her daily life and answered curious viewers’ questions — earning millions of views.

But she said that while the social media attention is crazy, she’s just trying to balance how to make the most of her time, enjoy it and remember it.

@angielinderman Ultimate World Cruise Q&A or really FAQ since i dont know how to do a Q&A on here. Help! I tried to andwer as many as I could that I know a lot of people have, but let me kniw what else you want to know about what its like on @Royal Caribbean’s Ultiamte World Cruise. #RoyalCaribbean #crusing #explore #solotravler #worldCruise #UltimateWorldCruise #UWC #SerenadeOfTheSeas #cruise #travel #solofemaletraveler #cruiseship #cruisetok ♬ original sound – Angie

“When I travel, I often forget the small moments,” she said. “You remember the big the high highs and the lows, but you don’t remember kind of the quiet moments that are also really valuable and so I wanted to capture those.”

If people do watch her videos, she hopes that she’ll encourage them to undergo genetic testing and health screenings to maintain their health and be inspired to travel whenever and however they can.

“Life is short and it is not a guarantee to any of us that we see old age. So I’m just very much trying to do all the things that I can do now while I’m here,” Linderman said.
