As we’ve shared in the past, we’re always on top of the latest trends to hit the lingerie market. Recently that’s included strappy underwear styles and barely there sheer pieces, so with that in mind, the next big underwear trend to emerge may take you by surprise. Ready or not, high-waisted underwear—jokingly referred to as “granny panties”—is suddenly everywhere we look and all over our favorite shopping sites like Nordstrom, Shopbop, and Need Supply.
No, this is not a drill. We know that the underwear style had a bad rap in the past for not being the chicest of all underwear styles (sorry!). But that said, this new wave of high-waisted briefs are some of the most stylish we’ve ever seen. Think about it—if comfort is your top priority when it comes to what’s in your undergarments drawer, then it really doesn’t get any better than “granny panties.” With all the pretty embroidery, delicate lace, and luxurious satin options to choose from, there are so many stylish picks that might convince you to try the style out for yourself.

If I haven’t yet convinced you to reconsider “granny panties,” then maybe these underwear trends will appeal to you.
