In my quest to find comfortable underwear, I made my way to Gitanjali Saxena’s desk. Gitanjali is the category head for lingerie at TataCLiQ.com, who has recently returned from a lingerie buying trip to Paris. Not only does she know what will trend in 2018; she has also picked up a season’s worth of Etam lingerie that’s coming soon (and exclusively!) on TataCLiQ.com.
But I digress. My point of contention is the dreaded panty line, and I’ve been looking for the perfect panty to wear under form-fitting dresses and trousers. Gitanjali’s advice? To go for boy shorts (they're on sale too!). “They’re very comfortable,” she says. “They’re to women what boxer briefs are to men,” she adds and explains that because of the longer cut, boy short panties offer more coverage and also stay in place.
She’s also directed me towards the core collection from Dutch brand Hunkemoller, which is made up of basics – lingerie in basic colours, comfortable fits and breathable fabrics.
Gitanjali’s top pick? This:
