What could be more essential than underwear? After all, it's the first piece of clothing we put on before everything else. As comfort is a matter of personal taste, here are 5 different types of underwear for women, each of them made in Quebec. There’s something for every preference…and for every butt! In this post, I walk you through the different options and offer you some of my recommendations.
These panties were designed and made in Quebec from our incredibly soft bamboo rayon fabric. I’m proud to say that all these styles are extremely comfortable, stylish, eco-conscious AND locally made!
1. Bohemian Bikini
One of the first models I created. It's a classic cut, though a little cheeky as it covers only half the bum! It’s a nice cut if you’re looking for medium coverage.
But if you're the type to be bothered by underwear that rides up, I'd recommend the next model. This is not to say that the bohemian bikini would be uncomfortable for you; it just depends on our body shape and personal preference!
The hipster garçonne is low-rise underwear that covers the bum more than the bikini does! It is low-waisted, but not too low, a garçonne cut without being a boxer (for a real women's boxer, keep reading 👇). It’s a super popular model that appeals to many women, no matter their body type.
Like the cut of our hipster boyshort but prefer underwear with a higher waist? The high-waisted boybrief may quickly become your favourite underwear! The fit is the same as the previous model, but this one covers up to the waist. The elastic is soft and delicate, so it doesn't feel uncomfortably tight. We love to wear it under skirts and high-waisted pants, and under dresses too!
I’ve met tons of women who borrow their boyfriend's boxers because they just couldn't find a pair of women's boxers on the market that didn't ride up. Search no further! The globetrotter boxer offers optimal coverage, without annoyingly riding up! This is my personal favourite for sleeping. I also wear the globetrotter boxer under summer dresses.
P.S. If you’re really keen on borrowing your boyfriend’s boxers and he could use a few new pairs, we have a section for him too!
If you're looking for minimal coverage, the gipsy thong cut is for you. It’s perfect to avoid panty lines under leggings. This model is made a little smaller than the other models, so opt for a larger size if you tend to fall between two sizes.
All these models are available in several colours. Order a few to benefit from a bulk discount. It's the perfect opportunity to refresh your underpants wardrobe! Shop the full collection here.

Hi! I am the designer and founder of Clothes & Roads, I love tea, succulent plants, yoga, chocolate and baby animals.
Between designing new clothes for my brand, managing my social accounts, the production and the business finances, I like to share on the blog a diversity of subjects like slow fashion, travel, zero waste, local products, minimalism and vanlife! 🚐
Being zero waste in the fashion industry is hard. It requires brands to rethink their production processes, to choose sustainably sourced materials and to make choices within the limits of our geographical and industry resources. It’s not mission impossible, but it sure does pose many challenges. Not only do the items need to be packaged eco-consciously, either for merchandizing, shipping or retail, but the cutting and production process itself is a huge challenge.
How does your wardrobe make you feel? Is it cluttered and overwhelming? Do you find yourself uninspired by your clothes or mentally exhausted when trying to decide what to pack? If this sounds like you, then a capsule wardrobe may help simplify your life! In this post, I walk you through the concept of a capsule wardrobe and its many benefits.
The clothes we choose to wear are a form of self-expression and a source of comfort as we go about our daily routine and milestone moments in our lives. But what if we could do more with our wardrobe—for the planet and for our communities—simply by being intentional in our choices
