No one wants their underwear on display – well, unless you’re Kim Kardashian, of course. But, how do you avoid visible panty lines, particularly if you don’t want to wear a thong under your clothing? Take a look below at the best no show underwear that you can wear under everything in your closet.

You’ll find choices that won’t show even under your leggings or tight clothing.

Two choices to avoid visible panty lines

When making sure that the lines of your underwear aren’t visible under your jeans, skirt or whatever you happen to be wearing, there are really two main choices available to you.

You could opt for a thong so that you can’t see any visible seams across your derriére. Or, if you find thongs uncomfortable to wear, you could choose to wear a fuller, smooth brief. I’ve concentrated on fuller briefs, but his article gives you options for both so you can choose what works best for you.

What color to choose for your no show underwear

Depending on your outfit, you could potentially choose any color at all and it won’t show through. But, if you are wearing lighter colors, the best color to wear is nude.
