The Best Women’s Underwear Trends for This Summer

Summer is officially here; before you start picking out your new dress or shorts, there is one crucial thing that needs to happen first: underwear shopping. Shopping for women’s underwear used to be so simple. We’d grab a pack of our favorite brands and go about our day. But now, there are so many types of women’s underwear! Thongs, low-rise, high-cut, hipsters, briefs, boy shorts, and more. What are the best women’s underwear for you? And what does each type do? Let’s explore the different kinds of underwear options Cosabella has to offer and see which is best for you.

How to pick the right underwear

Picking out the perfect underwear is hard. When you’re looking for new underwear, it can be complicated to find one that fits your style and makes you feel comfortable. But it doesn’t need to be this way! Some tips on finding the perfect women’s underwear for you include knowing what size you are. Don’t know your size? Make sure to use our size chart to find out.

Once you know your size, you can distinguish your style. That means what colors are good for you and also what kind of material you like best. The options are endless at Cosabella. For some people, comfort is critical when picking their panties. For others, they may prefer something more attractive or seductive. Whatever the case, we’ve curated these ten women’s lingerie trends that will fit into everyone’s personal preference.

Best Women’s Underwear

Boy Shorts

Take a look around. Whatever the store, you’re bound to see a variety of boyshorts on the shelves. What is it about this underwear style that makes it so popular? They are comfortable, stylish, and versatile. Boyshorts offer more coverage than the average underwear. They are perfect when wearing skirts or dresses because you will feel more comfortable and won’t be totally exposed.

High Waist

High waist styles are a great way to accentuate your waist. High waist underwear is the perfect fit if you want to support your stomach, control your figure, and create a slimmer line. Whether they’re briefs or thongs, the high waist will help firm up your tummy and give you a more streamlined silhouette. Also the higher waistband can make your legs look longer!

No other type of underwear draws as much attention as the thong. The small piece of fabric is perfect for when you’re wearing something form-fitting, and it’s also a great way to spice up your lingerie drawer with something a little different. With the tight fit, they won’t show underneath your clothing and keep you comfy all day long. These delicate panties come in different shapes and styles and work well under a wide range of clothes.

Sheer Underwear 

Another lingerie trend making headlines this summer is the rise of sheer and semi-sheer underwear. Wearing see-through mesh underwear is a trend that has been around for many years. With the perfect balance of fashion and comfort, mesh underwear is one of the hottest trends in today’s market.

We all have days when we wake up wanting something a little more delicate, sultry, and even intimate. Forget the old set of granny panties and opt for an unlined semi-sheer lace bra and panty set. For days when you need a little extra boost, there are sheer Italian mesh panties and bodysuits to give to add a little more sparkle to your step. Mesh panties offer a sexy alternative to regular cotton panties.

Floral Lace

The lushness of lace fabric with playful floral decals add a touch of natural beauty to your lingerie drawer with floral designs that bring the outside in. From muted flowers to colorful exotic plants, floral lace panties may be what you need to add a little wow into your wardrobe. Even if you have a minimalist wardrobe full of neutrals, use your lingerie collection to add some fun while maintaining your style.

On the other hand, embroidered lace accentuates lacy intimates to create elegant pieces that are luxurious to the touch. Floral lace in light, airy colors, such as pink, play against the smooth texture of transparent tulle.

Some women shy away from wearing lace panties, but this is a huge mistake. Lace underwear should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Lace is comfortable, and they make you look great too. They can help you feel confident and sexy because they’re so soft against your skin.

Seamless Panties

We touched upon thongs, which are a great choice if you want no visible panty lines. However, Cosabella’s new collection, Free Cut Micro, is made with ultra-soft fabric with seamless edges that will lay flat against your skin. Available in thong and boyshort styles no matter your preference of panties. This collection is also available in shades Uno to Sette, so match your skin tone perfectly.

Printed Fabrics Are Still in Style

Printed fabric underwear will be a welcome change to the usual plain pair of underwear. Not only are they more comfortable, lightweight, and breathable, but they also come in a variety of colors and prints. Our new range of printed underwear has something for everyone, whether you love leopard prints, stripes, or fun geometric patterns. Our printed panties are designed on lace or sheer mesh. They also have better elasticity, which means that you can wear them for long periods without feeling any discomfort.

Trending Colors 

With summer comes bold colors, and pastel colored lingerie is one of the items that are trending. Pastels can make you feel peaceful, and they provide a burst of happiness. The feminine color palette is perfect for any occasion, from romantic to casual. So if you’re in need to buy new underwear, this summer is the best time to do it! Choose from different pastel shades, including muted pinks, soft blues, pretty purples and dreamy greens like the Allure Boyshort. From delicately dainty ruffles to lace details and everything in between, you’ll find something to suit your tastes.


Bodysuits are a great choice as an alternative to underwear. They’re comfortable, feminine, and chic. Bodysuits are an undergarment that has been gaining popularity in recent years, and the trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. With structured bodices to provide support and intricate lace designs, bodysuits are the perfect no-slip undergarments to wear under skirts or pants this summer. You don’t have to sacrifice your favorite panty style, either. The latest bodysuit designs range from full briefs to thongs and deep v bottoms to match every woman’s preference and outfit. Complete with a cotton gusset liner for all-day wear.
