Fabulous Rumba Boyshort | Reader's Lingerie Pick

Updated on May 30, 2010

Thanks to all those of you who contribute suggestions and tips, this is a lovely tip I received from Erica, who found this adorable pair of rumba boyshort panties made by Lane Bryant, which is, in case you didn't know, a great place to buy lingerie in the plus sizes, and therefore a great place for men to buy lingerie as men tend to be larger than ladies.

Rumba panties are always popular amongst men who love lingerie because they're pretty and feminine and something a little out of the ordinary, with flounce and flair, and these panties at first seemed to be no different, yet they were. These panties weren't afraid to do something when it came to the back of the panties, where instead of making a person look like they're wearing frilly diapers, the ruffles dispersed to create a ruched rear end that was both flattering and innovative. Why am I talking about these panties in the past tense?

Unfortunately, this item is no longer available for purchase from Lane Bryant, though who knows, they may appear back in the future. (Side note here, it's actually annoying how many changes women's clothing go through. My boyfriend and I went shopping the other day and he wanted some black jeans. He was able to purchase the same black jeans he bought two years ago from the same store. There's no way you can do that with most women's clothing. Though it is nice to have the variety, the downside is that you really have to buy, buy, buy when you find something you like, because it will be discontinued. )

Anyway, I'm going to feature these panties regardless because Erica took the time to send them in and because their prettiness is a cautionary tale to those of us who assume that lingerie will be around for ever. It won't be.

Erica was smart enough to buy four of these panties. Erica says:

I saw these panties while browsing Lane Bryant's web site, they looked really cute, and I decided to purchase a pair of the sharp green. I'm not a big fan of the 'boyshort' style because they usually have too much coverage for my liking, but these panties looked more like a 'hipster' or 'bikini' from the back. And the ruffles looked fabulous!

I'm glad I purchased them because they feel as good on as they look. Just the right amount of material and support for me. And they are nylon which is perfect for the warmer weather we are now getting in the Midwest. I just purchased three more pairs to wear this summer.

Good for you, Erica! You have triumphed in the quest for lovely lingerie.

      Just went to my nearest Lane Bryant and bought the same ruffled rumba panties in green with poka dots. The are fabulous. When the clerk asked if she could help, I was lead right to the rack of assorted colors. I asked to try them on and there was no hesitation by the clerk. These are really, really nice panties. Good pick Hope.
