Although we’re not totally sure how it happened, anytime you think “mom underwear”, we know exactly what you’re picturing. Mostly because we’re doing the same thing. Up-to-your-bra-line, drab beige, stretched-out cotton. There’s really nothing wrong with that. If you’re comfortable rockin’ the classics, we’re all for it. But gone are the days where we have to go that route if we want any sort of departure from lacy pieces of fabric. The most comfortable women’s underwear out there isn’t the most boring anymore.

Nope. We live in the age of cute, functional, and, most importantly, comfortable undies. Obviously, moms aren’t the only ones who can fill their top drawers with these styles. But we also know us moms rely pretty heavily on all things easy when it comes to the basics. The nice thing about these goodies is that while they really are easy, they’re anything but basic. Retailers have stepped up their game when it comes to underwear for those of us who are in between all-lace and stretched-out beige. Maybe we’re just noticing them more now that we’re shopping for them, but we’re thinking brands have gotten the idea that practical and comfy doesn’t also have to mean boring or dumpy. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite pairs of the most comfortable women’s underwear right here. This underwear is definitely not your mom’s underwear. Colorful, seamless, flirty. We’ve got them all here.
