Shadowline® Comfort Band Full Brief Panty 3-Pack

High waist underwear – shop our classic full coverage panties

Love traditional panties, just the way they used to make them? Some of our Shadowline® panties and Dixie Belle® panties have been in production since as far back as the 1940s, and we still make them on the same machines and using the exact same fabrics to this day!

Our full brief panties sit at the natural waistline for enhanced comfort, and have a full coverage back that won’t bunch up or create a visible panty line. And if you’re a fan of retro style panties, naturally you’ll love the authentic vintage look of these ultra-high waist panties.

If you also want a true vintage feel, choose our 100% nylon panties. Marketed on its launch as an alternative to silk for your hosiery drawer, nylon fabric is wonderfully soft, lightweight and smooth against your skin. But, for those who like the convenience and flexibility of a modern stretch fit, we also offer many of our nylon underwear styles with added spandex.

We have high rise panties for every aesthetic, including both simple basics such as black or white high waist panties, and fashion colors. Our Dixie Belle® panties are available in delicate pastels, while selected Shadowline® panties come in a variety of shades from metallics to jewel tones.

Looking for sheer high waist panties? Choose one of the many designs made from our exclusive Satintrique® fabric, a semi-sheer nylon with a subtle shimmer finish for added glamour. Prefer your full briefs in a solid color? Choose our Opacitrique® nylon instead, which offers much greater opacity than traditional nylon panties.

Our collection of full briefs also includes high waist cotton panties for those who prefer this soft, breathable and natural fiber, as well as seamless nylon panties for a completely smooth look below your clothing.

And yes, we’ve got you covered if you’re shopping for plus size high waist panties! We pride ourselves on our inclusive sizing, and all of our full brief panties are available in extended sizing. High waist panties from the Shadowline® label go up to size 11/3X, while our plus size high waist underwear by Dixie Belle® ends at a size 15 which fits up to 60” hips.

Not sure which style to try first? Here are three of our customer favorites to narrow things down: the 17032 Nylon Hidden Elastic Full Brief Panty, offering semi-sheer coverage and a choice between neutrals or fun colors, the 17005 Spandex Full Brief Panty, made with 15% spandex for a flexible fit, and the 719 Dixie Belle® Scallop Trim Full Panty, a 100% nylon style made from the same fabric as our Velrose® slips so you can mix and match.

Whether you’re here because you love the look of vintage style panties or you’re just searching for some exceptionally comfortable women’s underwear, you won’t be disappointed – after all, there’s a reason we’ve been in business for over a century!
