The Best Women's Undies Style for Your Body Type

Every body is different, this is why we offer a wide range of styles and sizes of knickers to accommodate everybody! Shopping for undies can be difficult and for some it can be quite overwhelming with all the different style names out there. This is why we have created this guide to help you find the right fit of underwear for your body.

Why Wool Undies?

Wundies or Wool Undies. Our 100% Merino underwear is made with our specially developed lightweight, easy-care, 100% Merino wool jersey fabric - Merino Knit. Merino is naturally elastic and with our special knitting it gives the fabric great stretch to move with your body without the need for added synthetic fabrics. This makes our underwear unique to other Merino underwear in the market and this is why our customers love the feel of our Wundies

There's a lot to think about when buying knickers. Too big they fall down & spoil the outline of an outfit with excess fabric. Too small you get muffin top and bulge in all manner of places. But when you get it right you’ll look and feel amazing.

Now let's find the best style for you! We have basic cuts - FULL, HICUT & HIPSTER. 

Full Briefs (sometimes called granny pants) these are exactly what they say they are. They cover everything from high waist to low cut on the legs. They are good for minimising your tummy. High-Cut Briefs are cut high on the legs. They are great for creating curves and making your legs look longer. Hipster Briefs are lower cut and the waistband sits on the hips, a couple of inches below the waist, and have a low-cut leg line

Underwear is defined as clothing that is worn next to the skin and under other clothing. Although both lingerie and underwear are usually worn under clothes they serve very different purposes. 'Underwear' implies a very functional benefit and can be anything from your grandmother's briefs to long-johns!!
