I have extremely fond memories of my wedding and ended up having no regrets about my bridal jumpsuit look, except for one major oversight on my end: I didn't opt for a pair of no-show underwear. It was a major face-palm moment. Unfortunately, it wasn't until after the wedding, when I saw the pictures, that I realized I had VPL (visible panty line) in some shots. Thankfully, it wasn't too bad and could be edited out of photos, but it will forever be a thorn in my side when I think of my nuptials. It's for reasons like these that seamless underwear is such a popular and photogenic item.

The style is truly one that everyone needs in their lingerie collection, no matter the occasion. Whether worn with your favorite jeans while running errands, a formfitting dress on date night, your everyday leggings, or even your yoga pants, a pair of no-frill, seamless panties will help to keep your outfit streamlined. This ultimately spares you the disappointment I experienced firsthand at my wedding. Here's to a simple pair of underwear being able to give you one less thing to worry about. Hey, the little things can make a huge difference.

Top Review: "Feather light stretchy mesh. As comfortable as wearing nothing. No panty lines."

Top Review: "After 10 years, I have had to replace my On Gossamer mesh briefs. They are virtually invisible, even under leggings, and have help their shape (with hand drying) through years of regular use. It's great to be able to buy the same, excellent product so long after I bought my first ones. Kudos to On Gossamer for not tinkering with perfection!"

9. Calvin Klein

Top Review: "These thongs are the only underwear that I'll wear anymore. I love the fit, love the feel, they're invisible under any outfit and I can't even tell that I have them on."

Top Review: "I love this underwear! It is the only underwear I wear with yoga pants and under spandex and to the gym. It is silky smooth and comfortable, creates zero lines, and makes you feel like you're wearing nothing at all."

Top Review: "There are a lot of so-called seamless panties out on the market, but Calvin Klein's Invisibles line is truly seamless due to the laser cut edges!"

10. Hanro

Top Review: "This is the best underwear I have ever worn. They remain at the top of my drawer because all the other panties I have I NEVER wear. They don't show under your clothes and they are so comfortable.”

Top Review: "These are my 'go-to' panties, comfortable, some support, and seamless under clothes."

Top Review: "I did a lot of research looking for new underwear to try that were actually comfortable, not too tight, soft, and airy—these briefs check all the boxes. I wash them in mesh laundry bags and hang them to dry, and they've kept their form."

12. Wealurre

Top Review: "The fit is perfect, and they are so soft and smooth it's like you don't even have them on. The sides and bottoms stay in place and don't roll up or show a panty line."
