I firmly believe shopping is not the same experience from one person to the next. Everyone has different priorities and challenges when it comes to building their wardrobe. Searching for the perfect pair of jeans or comfortable sandals may feel arduous for some and joyous for others. Whatever the case, shopping is a very individualized experience, especially when you're shopping for undergarments. 

While everyone's experience, needs, budget, and style differs, there's no denying that building a strong capsule wardrobe takes time. Even for lingerie fanatics, it can be overwhelming to identify the best places to shop and what's worth buying. To make the process easier, you have to be willing to try different types of underwear (e.g., thongs, classic bikinis, or boxers) to see which works best for you. But if you're more risk-averse and want to skip the trial runs, one style is almost foolproof: cheeky-cut panties.

Characterized by a more narrow cut of fabric across the backside (providing more coverage than a thong but less than a bikini), this style has become known for its sublime balance between functionality and fashion. It's no surprise then this style is beloved by women everywhere, and we've got the receipts to prove it. Ahead, we rounded up 27 of the best pairs of cheeky underwear from across the internet. We considered reviews, price points, materials, functionality, and editorial perspective to ensure these are the best of the best. So make room in your dresser because shopping for new lingerie has never been easier.
