You abandoned your low-rise jeans in the early 2000s, so let me ask you this: Why are you still wearing underwear that barely rises above your hip bones?
While you ponder the answer to this question, let me tell you about the benefits of wearing high-rise underwear. They are naturally smoothing for the belly area, without the tight, uncomfortable feeling of shapewear. And they give you a little extra coverage that can make wearing a short skirt or flirty dress feel like a confidence-boosting exercise.
All this to say that high rise underwear is not just for grandmas, people. Today’s styles come in sexy cuts that are a throwback to the ‘90s or offer a cheeky peek of booty, all served up in slinky pastel satin or super comfy (and eco-friendly) cotton weaves.
Here, 11 pairs of high rise underwear that just might make you a convert.
