Your guide to the Best Underwear for Summer

The Brief? Staying cool, comfortable, and confident during the hottest months of the year.

As temperatures rise, choosing underwear that not only offers support, but also provides breathability and moisture-wicking properties is essential. Whether you’re lounging by the pool, tackling outdoor adventures, or simply trying to beat the heat, the right knickers can make all the difference. Let’s explore the top picks for summer-friendly underwear styles that will keep you feeling fresh and breezy no matter how high mercury climbs. Here are a few key considerations to make when it comes to buying your next pair.

Breathable & Moisture-Wicking Fabrics

Opting for underwear made from breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics is one of our top recommendations when selecting your summer knickers. Our favourite fabric that hits these goals? TENCEL™ Micro x Modal. These sustainable fibres naturally manage the transportation of moisture, enhancing fabrics by keeping your skin feeling pleasantly comfortable. Derived from natural material, the sub-structure of modal fibres is structured to regulate the absorption and release of moisture. This contributes to fabrics breathability that support the body’s natural temperature regulating.

Lightweight and Seamless Designs

You want your summer knickers to be so lightweight, you feel like you’re not wearing any at all! And don’t get us started on VPL. Nothing sabotages a summer dress like those unsightly lines. Our flatlock stitching delivers on that ‘seamless’, VPL-free look without sacrificing on the femininity of a gorgeous lace trim. Often compared to clouds in terms of their softness and lightweight feel, Stripe & Stare knickers are the next best thing to going totally commando.

The Colour

Invisible underwear is the goal when it comes to summer-dressing. For layering under linens, selecting the right colour is essential to ensure nothing shows through. Our top three colour recommendations for your underwear drawers? Sand, Pink-a-boo, White and Nude Tones. God-tier for remaining completely hidden under your lightest shirts and trousers.

The Shape

The shape of your pants is not an element to overlook. Different occasions require different shapes and it’s important to nail this when selecting your summer knickers of choice.
