The underwear drawer is often overlooked when it comes to tending to your wardrobe, so it’s time to reassess your collection and stock up on the essentials. We always suggest a good solid pair of cotton underwear is best, and finding some go-to options is easier than you think. Most come in a variety of colorways and prints, so you can switch things up from day to day. Or, if you’d rather leave the decision-making to your actual outfit, then stick to the basics with all-black or white panties. When it comes to silhouette, there’s a ton to pick, as well, like a stylish high-cut or a comfy boyshort.
The best part? Almost all of the choices we found are available in multi-packs of at least six or even up to a dozen pairs, so you can buy in bulk and never run out of such necessary yet often-neglected item. Plus, they all boast at least 4 stars in reviews, so you know you’ll be getting a good (and quality) deal. Ahead, we picked the best cotton underwear for women that will keep you comfy all day.
