High-waisted panties are very trendy right now. I see them just about everywhere: magazine spreads, on celebrities, in boutiques, etsy, pinterest etc. I like their retro, sassy appeal, but let's face it, no matter how much you dress them up, they are still granny panties underneath all that pretty lace. And like most women, I was quite unsure whether I wanted to embrace this trend no matter how cute they looked on that model in Elle magazine. I got over my phobia last year when I began to design this collection. I sewed myself a pair and decided to try them out for a day. The verdict? They were amazingly comfortable and I felt like a sexy pin-up girl to boot! I now wear them regularly and I have found that they are best for skirts and dresses because they smooth out the lines of the tummy making a sleek silhouette. The moral of this story: embrace the high-waisted look, as these are not your "granny's panties!"
