Underwear: You wear it every day, so you better get it right (much like jeans and white tees). Whether you prefer bikinis, high-waisted briefs, or thongs, the ideal pair of underwear is one that takes you through the day without requiring much thought. To find the best kinds of women’s underwear, we reached out to 26 stylish businesswomen, models, designers, and musicians to get their favorites. And to ensure we left no pairs behind, we also culled our archives for underwear recommended by other interesting people (Amber Rose and Barbara Corcoran, to name two). Read on for all of their picks, which include practical underwear that will get you through the workday without a wedgie, pairs that will be invisible under even the slinkiest dresses, and a few styles that you’ll probably want to show off.
Hosiery garments are the product of hosiery fabric produced from hosiery yarn. Like the yarn used for making woven fabric, hosiery yarn comes from a separate spinning (yarn making) process, and is used with circular knitting machines to form fabric. One or more hosiery yarn is used to make knitted or hosiery fabric, and garments produced out of this are generally referred to as hosiery garments.
Pantyhose have been criticized for being flimsy because the thin knit fabric is prone to tearing or laddering (or "running").[9] The wearer can cause a run in the hose by catching a toenail in the fabric when the hose is put on, by catching it on a rough surface like a corner of a desk, or a car, and by numerous other risks. Some women apply clear nail polish or hair spray to their hose to prevent runs from growing.

Up until this time, there was little reason for women outside show business to wear "panty hose", as the longer hemlines allowed for the use of over-the-knee stockings secured with a garter belt. Nonetheless, during the 1960s, improved textile manufacturing processes made pantyhose increasingly more affordable, while man-made textiles such as spandex (or elastane) made them more comfortable and durable. The advent of the fashionable miniskirt, which exposed the legs to well above the knee, made pantyhose a necessity to many women. In 1970, U.S. sales of pantyhose exceeded stockings for the first time, and it has remained so ever since.[8] Pantyhose became a wardrobe staple throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

Luisana Mendoza de Roccia, co-founder of Maisonette, calls the brand Negative Underwear her “no-fuss underwear solution.” She says all of the styles are sleek and lay smoothly on the body, and that she can feel confident that they’ll stay in place during the day. “For the daytime, I’ll go for the cotton briefs, and for evening affairs where I want to feel a bit more luxe, I’ll pull out the silky briefs,” de Roccia told us. “Plus they’re made by women for women, so you can’t go wrong.”

Laura Schubert, co-founder of pubic-hair-oil company Fur, says ODDOBODY’s underwear is “perfect” — especially the brief. “It’s a classic,” she says. “I love a classic brief because they are comfortable and easy to wear. The stitching and fabric ensures that they don’t bunch or have weird lines.” Schubert also likes that the brand’s pieces are made of 100 percent cotton, and that ODDOBODY “promotes speaking comfortably about bodies, health, and identity.”
