Types of Knickers: Your Guide to The Best Knickers

Outfit building starts at the very foundations of every look; that’s right, your undies. Your choice of underwear can affect you so much - how comfortable you are, how your clothes look and how much confidence you have in your outfits. And it’s all about confidence.

So, for your next wardrobe update, let’s start at the very beginning. The best knickers and most flattering underwear can do wonders for any look. And there’s no need to choose between comfort and style anymore. Now you can ooze confidence with the best knickers for your shape and style with Peacocks.

Choose full coverage briefs for every day.

Classic Full Coverage Briefs

Let’s start with a classic cut that everyone has in their underwear collection, full briefs. These types of knickers are either mid or high-waisted and are also often referred to as bikini cut briefs.

This flattering and comfortable style of knickers for women has the benefit of full coverage over the bum and tummy areas, perfect for everyday wear.

Classic and breathable cotton full briefs are a simple and effortless choice. Or you might opt for full lace briefs for an added touch of femininity. Want the best of both worlds? Go for a pair of our stunning high waist briefs with lace leg inserts for the perfect balance of the two.

Choose barely-there thongs to ensure zero VPL is on show.

Zero VPL Thongs

Now, let’s get down to business. The sure-fire way to avoid any risk of VPL is the thong. Super high leg, thong back types of knickers serve up the least coverage when it comes to fabric but have a whole host of pros. Not only do you zero out your risk of VPL, but thongs are also super comfortable – if you get the size, fabric and cut just right for you.

Choose all lace for the most sultry of looks or go for everyday cotton thongs for maximum comfort and breathability. The latest Peacocks thongs collection is packed with plenty of colour and prints too – try this stunning floral and lace thong for ultimate feminine style.

Opt for sultry, flattering and super comfortable Brazilian briefs.

Flattering Brazilian Briefs

A super comfortable brief with a touch of spice is the ever-popular and exceptionally flattering Brazilian briefs - the best knickers if you want something that sits between brief and thong. The Brazilian brief usually has a low waistline and cutaway back that sits higher on the bum than a full brief but offers more coverage than a thong.

Brazilian briefs are known and loved because of their flattering cut, perfect for curvy pear-shaped ladies.

Lacy styles will give you all the sexy feels this season, but the latest Peacocks collection is packed with simple everyday Brazilian cuts too. So, you’re sorted for every mood.

Lengthen your legs with our high leg briefs for all outfits.

Leg-Lengthening High Leg Briefs 

A particularly popular style of knickers for women now are leg-lengthening high leg briefs. These types of knickers sit higher up, closer to the waist, and are cut high on the leg, elongating your pins for a feminine feel – and bags of extra confidence!

This cut is comfortable to wear under your clothes no matter the style you choose and offers good coverage at both the back and tummy areas. Adding some extra curve appeal to your shape, high leg briefs are perfect for straighter and more athletic body types.

From floral styles to stripes and polka dots, discover the perfect high leg brief multi-packs for your collection with Peacocks.

Enhance your curves under every outfit with our stunning shapewear knickers.

Curve-Enhancing Shapewear Knickers

Have you invested in some seriously curve-enhancing shapewear knickers for your collection yet? No? Then you’re in the right place.

So, what is shapewear? These types of knickers are designed specifically to offer some extra control at the tummy, bum and often the top of the leg too. If you feel like you’d like that little bit of extra hold, shapewear knickers have your back.

Sculpting your shape under your clothes for the best possible foundation, shapewear is surprisingly comfortable to wear. Forget the rigid corset styles of the past, modern shapewear is stretchy, soft and effortless to wear – even all day.
