As summer is on its way, and smaller, tighter clothing will be coming out to play, frantic searching for the best VPL-free knickers to add to our shapewear collection, has begun.

So much so, according to data, Lounge reports that searches for seamless underwear have increased by a staggering 400%.

Honestly, we all love a big pair of pants every now and then when we’re not quite feeling our best. But, on a confident, girlboss day, we need underwear that won’t show us up.

From obvious lines to that nasty bulky feeling, thick material should just not exist when it comes to knickers, especially around the edges. (Seriously, it’s almost like they were designed by men🙄.)

Comfort and seamlessness are the two non-negotiables when it comes to thongs. No one wants thick edges showing through their leggings at the gym.

Usually the most discreet underwear option, thongs are the most popular choice in today’s market. With the lack of material guaranteeing a smoother silhouette under skin-tight clothing, thongs are the undetectable heroes.

If you can’t already tell, we are big supporters of the minimal briefs.

So from workout undies to loungewear favourites, we’ve found the best seamless thongs that actually deliver what they promise, with no VPLs in sight.

If you’re into comfortable underwear, you must already know about Lounge. These nude thongs were made with subtlety in mind. With the softest materials and stitched to perfection, they are an everyday staple.

The name gives them away, they are literally invisible. Of course, the Lululemon team knows exactly what they’re doing when it comes to making the most comfortable and functional workout underwear. On the expensive side, but if you’re a regular gym-girly, we can’t recommend these enough.

We love barely-there thongs, but sometimes a bit of extra support is needed. This high leg thong from lingerie legends Boux Avenue will be snug in all the right places. With a range of seven different colours, why not get the lot? (That’s one for each day of the week.)

No underwear list would be complete without Calvin Klein. Their Invisibles collection is made from lightweight microfibre, and comes in 5 minimalist colours. Amazingly, the panties are laser-cut on all edges. Now, that’s the sort of seamlessness we’re talking about

If there’s one brand that can do seamless, it’s Skims. Kim K clearly knows our struggles. This super smooth thong is guaranteed to stay flat against you all day long.
