When it comes to buying briefs, it’s not always about getting something really pretty. Sometimes you just need a good functional pair that you can be comfortable in all day!
We get lots of requests for cotton briefs, and there are many reasons why this natural fiber is in such high demand. Other than being super soft and stretchy, cotton is also hypoallergenic which is great news if you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergies. Cotton is also breathable, moisture wicking and durable: making it a great choice for underwear.
Recently we introduced the Beyond Naked range by Wacoal to our collection. The fabric is a clever blend of 86% pima cotton (which is softer and more durable than regular cotton) and 14% spandex, to allow the bottoms to stretch with your body. Available in three different styles, each has a clean-cut leg and waist, with no excessive seams, to give you a great line under clothing.
Caring for your cottons
Although cotton is a very durable fiber, to get best results we advise to hand wash in cool or warm water, dry naturally and do not iron or dry clean.

And while we are on the subject of comfortable briefs, we cannot not mention Smoothease by Fantasie! These briefs are clean-cut and stitch free with bonded seams and gusset, so you get absolutely no VPL (visible panty line): making these perfect to wear under your tight fitting/silky/slinky outfits!

The best thing about these fuller coverage briefs is the super soft fabric, which has optimal stretch so can fit all sizes between an 8/XS and 18/2XL….and yes we have tested this on members of the Avokado fitting team!
The 4 basic colours of Black, Navy, Beige and Ivory can be matched with some of your favourite Avokado bras including;
