There’s been an accident: An unexpected period, a drip of pee or a case of sweaty swamp butt. Now it’s time to change your underwear.
Just one problem: You can’t swap your undies in plain sight.
It’s a problem most women (and men) have run into, which is both uncomfortable and awkward. In response, one woman created a new active-intimate apparel line that hopes to solve the issue.
Slick Chicks is an intimates brand that allows women to change panties without taking off their clothes. The underwear comes with easily removable hook and eye closures at each side, so a woman can slip in and out of a pair whenever she needs.
“It’s a convenient way of wearing underwear without having to bend over and take off all your clothing,” founder Helya Mohammadian tells Mashable.
Mohammadian says the underwear is discreet and easy enough that women can get in and out of their undies inside a subway train, at their cubicle desks or even at a restaurant.
“I designed this line for women who are in situations where they can’t readily get to the bathroom,” she says. “No one will know.”
Mohammadian, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, came up with the idea after working at Soul Cycle. She realized that with an active lifestyle she was constantly changing in and out of soiled undies. To combat the elements, she ensured that each pair was also breathable, moisture-wicking with antimicrobial fibers, but strong enough to hold wash after wash.
Mohammadian says her company is meant to empower women to become super independent. “Whether it’s an expectant mother, someone with a physical handicap or someone who needs assistance changing, the easy clasps make it easy for anyone to change themselves,” she says. “You can be active, you can be pregnant or in a wheelchair, but know that with this underwear you can really be able to do it yourself.”
The line is offered in three styles: Bikini brief, thong and boyshort.

You know the drill: you’ve just found the most amazing dress that fits you like a glove and is perfect for that upcoming occasion. The only issue? It requires a special kind of foundation. From cutout details to backless designs, Classic Shapewear has you covered with a wide range of innovative bra solutions.
A plunge neckline may be daring, but thanks to specialized bras, you no longer have to fear a wardrobe malfunction. Our plunge designs offer support and shape while remaining sight unseen, allowing you to wear the lowest of necklines without foregoing the proper support.
Showcase your backside in the most ladylike of ways with a bra that’s specifically designed for those sexy backless or low-back dresses. These styles work their magic in the front without showing through on the back opening, giving the illusion that you’re wearing nothing underneath.
Strapless dresses require adequate bra support without the straps, and finding one that doesn’t slide down is sometimes difficult. Our strapless bras stay in place while giving you the shape and lift you desire. Bare your shoulders confidently without sacrificing the boost these dresses require.
Is your favorite top a bit too low for the office? Adjust your neckline accordingly with modesty panels that fit securely at the bust to give you extra coverage when and where you need it. These panels can be removed for an easy transition from work to play, and they create a layered look that’s fashion-forward without adding unnecessary bulk.
If you need a little lift or additional fullness, consider using bust enhancers for the look of a fuller chest. These inserts shape and boost your bust while creating ample cleavage to enhance a lower neckline, and the gel design is comfortable enough for frequent wear.
Strappy back or challenging cutouts? Converter solutions allow you to transform your favorite bra’s straps to fit your fashion needs. Slide these into place to accommodate racerbacks and crisscross straps with ease.
7. Shoulder Cushions
Bras are meant to be comfortable and supportive, and there’s no need to suffer through a long day with bra straps digging into your shoulders. Shoulder cushion pads are ideal for adding a gentle, padded cushion along the top of the strap to prevent unnecessary friction and discomfort.
Our diverse bra styles help you look your best while exploring today’s latest trends and fashion must-haves.
A style icon Nicole Richie once observed, “lingerie plays a big part in how you carry yourself.”
The items you wear underneath your clothing are vital to building the right foundation for an outfit, and they can make you feel undeniably confident at the same time.
Panties and Thongs

Love the look of vintage lingerie? Then bustiers are your go-to style. These corseted designs amplify your bust and draw attention to your décolletage while discreetly slimming your upper midsection.
When your lingerie matches cohesively, you just feel more self-confident throughout your day, but it can be difficult to find an exact color match if you don’t buy the pieces together. Our lingerie sets take the guesswork out of the process so that you’re always perfectly coordinated.
Why buy two pieces when you can slip on just one? Teddies are versatile enough to wear as comfy loungewear or provocative lingerie.
Sleepwear doesn’t have to be contained to just flannel pajamas. Go to bed feeling well-dressed in our selection of night dresses and chemises. Fishnet and mesh styles provide a see-through effect that leaves little to the imagination, while modest designs are made with romantic lace or comfortable microfiber fabric for lounging. Whether you prefer strapless or strappy nighties or feel best in short or full-length gowns, we have various styles to cover you as you wish.
Hosiery adds such a sexy touch to lingerie, and it’s the perfect complement to teddies and garter belts. Try wet look thigh-high stockings for an edgy vibe or back seam styles for vintage appeal.
Garter belts aren’t just for show, although they’re definitely made to show off. Ruffled and frilly versions offer a romantic addition to your lingerie, while high-waisted styles provide shaping for a slimming effect.
Many full body shapewear blogs, such as The Lingerie Addict, highlight some of the lesser-known lingerie styles that are equally as important as the most recognized staples. From waist-cinchers that guarantee a coveted hourglass shape to lingerie drawer dividers and specialized detergent for proper garment care, we offer the extras that complete your look and keep your collection cared for and organized.
