Most days, you’ll find me in jeans, and panty lines aren’t something you have to worry about with jeans. However, there are days when figuring out how to get no panty lines is more of an issue.

How to Get No Panty Lines
Nothing says fashion faux pas more than a sexy pair of pants or a super hot sheath dress with panty lines showing through.
Avoiding panty lines is possible. It just takes a little bit of creativity and planning to achieve the look. Make sure you have a full-length mirror available to check out the final look.
After all, chances are those panty lines will be visible from the rear, and that’s not something you’ll typically see as you check your look before heading out the door.
Wear thicker fabrics
Thicker fabrics (like denim) with texture (like corduroy) have the least probability of showing panty lines. It’s not always possible to choose an outfit with one of these fabrics, but it is the easiest way.
Wear shapewear. They make shapewear that goes from bust to above the knees, so depending on your outfit, this is an easy solution.
It doesn’t work as well during the hot summer months for me. I love Shapellx. Check them out here.
Wear tights under your pants or leggings under your dress. Another layer of fabric will help reduce the chances of panty lines.
This works even better if you choose control top tights or leggings with Lycra.
Slip on a slip
If wearing a dress, wear a slip underneath. I know. No one wears slips any longer, but they work.
Wear a thong
Wear a thong or a g-string. I’m not a fan of these, personally. They aren’t that comfortable. If that’s not an issue, it’s a great option.
Choose boy shorts. Because boy shorts end slightly below your butt, you’ll have less of a chance of a visible line. These are my favorites.
This is even more true if you choose a pair of boy shorts that is mostly lace because there won’t be an abrupt end to the fabric.
Go Commando. That’s right. Leave the panties and foundation garments at home. No panties mean no panty line.

I’m walking the red carpet this weekend for the Cinderella premiere, and definitely want no panty lines!
Have fun, Debra!
I hate trying when I find the perfect dress and the dreaded panty lines happen!! These are great tips to help to avoid that.
Thanks, Vera. I totally agree. It’s frustrating!
Cottonelle commando huh? I find that entertaining. Checking out that site because panty lines stink!
LOL, Aubrey. Hope you request your sample!
There are a lot of options when trying to avoid panty lines. I have generally found that when you wear the proper underwear for the outfit that you are wearing you shouldn’t have any issues.
That certainly can help. I do have a few outfits that it doesn’t seem to help though.
Panty lines surely can kill the look of a dress. I want to be panty line free as much as I can!
That is totally true, Susan!
Great tips… thanks so much for sharing!
You are very welcome!
Yeah, nobody wants VPL! lol I have some underwear that doesn’t have any elastic(it’s just sort of stretchy all over) and that works really well, too!
That is a great idea, Leah. Thanks!
Great advice and excellent suggestions! I have more problems with panty lines in pants rather than jeans but the same advice applies thank you!
Glad to share, Joely. Thanks for stopping by!
