We Tried It: Mission to Find the Best Basic Black Underwear

We've spent years and years collecting drawers full of cute and lacy underwear that, if we're being honest, no one ever notices anyway. But the older and wiser we get, the more we appreciate the beauty in a basic black bikini-cut bottom -- there's something to be said about comfort and coziness and underwear that's straight-up delightful to slip into.


So we gave the lacy stuff a break and converted to comfy-only for a week to narrow down the enormous list of basic underwear and bring you our review of the best and blackest of the bunch. For the experiment, we opted for bikinis from each brand for consistency, but we imagine our findings would be reflected in other cuts and styles from these brands, too.

What we found is that all underwear is not created equal -- shape and material really make a difference when it comes to comfort and breathability, and it's not all as wedgie-proof as we'd like it to be. 

So with all that in mind, here's our list of our best basic underwear on the market. You'll want to ditch the lace soon too, we promise.
