I just never saw the point, I guess.
I don't ever wear dresses, just shorts or jeans.
Underwear just seems like an uncomfortable and unnecessary extra layer of clothing.

I don't consider myself a really unconventional person in any way, but I must admit I've never encountered another female who shared my views on this.
Seem to recall that Ashley Judd agrees with you...

I would not consider them old-fashioned, by any means. These are called "briefs," and very comfortable to wear. Most women over 35 will wear them, without flicking an eyelash. Rather than have those "skimpy" ones riding up my bootie, I will wear these anytime!

To each his/her own when it comes to undergarments but I dont' know that I would say that "most women over 35" would wear those. I'm over 35 and would never ever wear those. Pretty sure none of my friends would either. There is an awful lot in between those "granny panties" and anything that would "ride up your bootie". JMHO

Don't those panties the OP posted just look like they would be HOT? Not as in sexy hot, as in sweaty hot. Also, not very healthy if they are made out of all synthetic, which is what it looks like.

The closest I have to granny panties are merino wool boy shorts from Icebreaker (wool underwear, sounds weird I know, but really it's not). But, those are mostly for warmth under skirts in the winter and for hiking & outdoor stuff.

(and actually they're pretty cute in a sporty way in real life... not on the model who has zero curves though)

It's all about your past. The leg cut of boy shorts reminds me of these:

Put a $500.00 price tag on them and you'll have people falling all over themselves trying to buy them.

Gotta be with the "in" crowd.

I think she's on to something there...

Anyway, for the poster looking for reasonable cotton boy shorts on the skimpy side, here you go:

Victoria's Secret - Cheeky boyshort

(Looks like a hiphugger to me...)

Code 10for25

Victoria's Secret - $3.99 Cotton Styles

Now, there's a whole lot more material than most need right here...but the COLOR makes this an outstanding...fetish-ish...sort of ensemble. I think the model helps a bit...

I saw some like those on close-out through Sierra or...one of those...was wondering how they were. Have Merino hats, tights...leggings...gloves...socks, sweaters, dresses...searching for camisoles and I'd imagine the boyshorts would be dandy come cold weather. GREAT fabric. Keeping that in mind...good for brisk hiking and other outdoor adventures.
