Some look good in anything. It's more about you than the panties.

I grew up in the 80's with the horrid high-waisted pants and no thank you. They look good on some people and some people love them so they can have them.

No granny panties for me either. Too uncomfortable, they show when you wear low waisted pants and yikes, panty lines, lol.
Yeah, high waisted on me comes up to the bottom of the bra band. I wear petite pants to get the waist where it should be on me.

You have to be flexible with meanings, too. My high cut “hipster” underwear fit near my waist. No panty lines.

Four pages on underpants! Yaaaaaay!

#31 shows what they look like only they are usually made of cotton. We wore them when we were little girls and then, when we got older it went to bikinis and nylon--but there were numerous articles about how elastic at the waist was comfier than elastic at the hip but mostly how nylon underpants could give you a yeast infection. At least make sure the crotch is cotton, that's what they said.

They come in all colors, often in packs of threes. There was one brand that was the most common by far. I can't remember what it was. Lollipops?

I seem to remember a post about two/three years ago with the same article based comment that granny panties are back in style. This Vox/NPR article is new and I believe the other one spoke of an independent underwear maker and not Rihanna. I remember in that thread, there too was the same confusion as to what granny panties actually were and if the panties in the article. The fact is typically what constitutes granny panties are high wasted, fully cover the butt and go about where the leg starts. Hipsters that hang low or boy shorts which look like male briefs but cut to women dimensions are not grannies. Many posters got that wrong in that thread and continue to in this thread from what I see.

As for this post, what I think is that there are more people who perhaps are open to "granny panties." I'm not quite sure if the Rihanna picture is exactly a granny or not. Perhaps the underwear made by Rihanna and others is more sexy grandma than the stereotypical ones that go down past the leg. I do think the thing is that we are in a day where women aren't tied to a single look and that is partially why it is making a comeback. Many brands have gotten in the way of the Fredricks and Victoria's Secrets that dominated women's underwear for the past 25 years due to the expansion of ecommerce. Rihanna's Fenti line was said to be sold based on an Instagram post. Even Walmart upped their underwear game. I'm male but it is weird how they have the women's underwear right at the lane across from the men's apparel section...

As for young people wearing them, I had two girlfriends that I knew their underwear and neither wore granny panties but they would wear thongs, boy shorts or hipsters. Maybe I knew the wrong girls. I'm sure my latter ex would have worn Rihanna's line, she was always into Rihanna's cosmetics because they were for girls of any ethnicity.

Just as a general comment, "there is nothing new under the sun"...everything in fashion is a recycled version of what came before. If you're young and weren't around for the last cycle it may be a big deal but once you've been around for a couple you figure out what fashion really is!
And, really, how many ways CAN you cut underwear? Or anything else, attire-wise. Trends are bound to repeat themselves.

Those in the photo are hip huggers and I wore them exclusively in my teens and 20's. At some point in my late 30's, after having kids, I switched to a simple nylon brief like in post #31. I guess they are granny panties? Never wore floss in my nethers.

If you really want to be correct, panties is short for pantaloons, it's not short for underpants. The word pants is also short for pantaloons. Eventually pants became the substitute name for trousers and panties became the substitute name women's pantaloons.

No matter what the style, size or fabric, for 70++ years they've always all been just KNICKERS for me. They always will be just knickers. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

You should call them whatever makes you happy but you don't need to get your Big Grrrl KNICKERS in a twist over what other people are happy to call them. It's a trivial thing for a grown woman to worry about. Seriously.
