Boy shorts, also known as "boy short panties", "boys' cut", "booty shorts", "shorties" or "boyleg briefs" are a sort of
lingeriethat goes all the way down the hips. They are a relatively new, but increasingly popular style of lingerie among women and are named for their similarity in looks to men's shorts. Boy shorts often cover most of the buttocksarea, but this is not always the case with thong-back lingerie also widely available. Boy shorts are a popular choice since most of them may avoid displaying a prominent visible panty lineprovided they don’t ride up, and yet are a modest and comfortable alternative to thongs and conventional panties. They are also popularly teamed-up with a camisoleand worn as loungewear. Cotton-spandex blends and lace are the most popular materials for boyshorts.
The term boyshorts can also refer to bathing suit bottoms in the same style.
