Larissa’s Designer Picks: What to Wear Under Summer Whites

Thursday, June 21 marks the first day of Summer in the northern hemisphere! And when the heat is on, nothing is as cool and comfortable as lightweight, white and light-colored clothes.

Here are a few of my favorite bottoms for under those thin, lightweight pants, jumpsuits and dresses.

Step 1 Choose Your Nude

Hanky Panky's Signature Lace panties are available in a spectrum of neutral hues. From top: Cappuccino, Suntan, Taupe, Chai, and Vanilla

The first step in finding just the right undies to wear under your light colored clothing is to find your nude. Our BARE, Retro and Signature Lace collections include styles in a variety of neutral hues which can blend with many skin tones, from vanilla and chai to cappuccino and mahogany.

Step 2 Choose your Style

Our Signature Lace and Retro Thongs are perfect for under pants and jumpsuits where VPL is a concern

If you’re looking for something to wear under lightweight pants or a jumpsuit and are concerned about VPL (visible panty lines), I’d recommend one of our thongs in the rise that works best for you.

If you’re looking for something with a little more coverage to wear under skirts, dresses, or other looser-fitting styles where VPL is less of a pressing concern, I’d recommend one of our boyshorts, bikinis, or briefs.

Larissa’s Designer Picks: Summer Sundress Solutions

Hot summer days call for easy, comfy sundresses. But what to wear underneath? Here are a few of my favorite sundress solutions for summer dressing with minimal effort.

Tops & Bralettes

Hanky Panky Signature Lace Padded Bandeau

Signature Lace Padded Bandeau

Our multi-way signature lace bandeau with lightweight, breathable spacer fabric lining is going to become your new BFF (breast friend for summer). The pretty lace looks nice peeking out from low cut necklines, backs and armholes, and it’s available in 5 must-have colors, to coordinate with almost any outfit.

It can be worn strapless, criss-cross, halter-neck, or with straps straight over the shoulders. And, it’s held up with soft, non-irritating, silicone-free brushed elastic, so it’s super comfy. The spacer lining in front gives a great silhouette, and the back is lined in stretch tulle for a little extra support. Available in sizes XS to L and fits B/C cups best.

Hanky Panky Organic Cotton Crop Top

Organic Cotton Crop Top

I love this organic Supima® cotton crop top. As I’m fuller-busted, I wear them all summer long, layered over my more utilitarian underwire bras. The pretty lace straps cover my bra  straps, and the neckline hits at just the right spot to keep everything work-appropriate. Worn on its own, it’s also great as a low-support weekend lounge bralette. Available in black and white, in sizes XS to XL and 1X to 3X.

Hanky Panky Signature Lace Removable Pad Bralette

Signature Lace Removable Pad Bralette

If you’re looking for a comfy bralette that won’t show under low-cut sundresses, look no further than our padded triangle bralette. The skinny 1/4″ elastic straps are easily concealed, while the low V-neckline and low back won’t peek out under open necklines. The padded cups give subtle shaping and coverage for AA to B cups under thin summer fabrics. Available in a variety of colors and prints in sizes XXS to L

Hanky Panky BARE Bralette in Toffee

BARE Bralette

For minimal shaping and concealment under lightweight summer dresses, try our BARE bralette. The raw-cut neckline lays flat under clothes and the technical fabric wicks moisture, keeping you dry and comfy on the most humid of days. It’s available in black and two of our best-selling skin-tones to blend under sheer summer fabrics. Fits AA to B cups best. Available in sizes XS to M.

Slips

Sometimes you just need the coverage and smoothness slips provide. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Hanky Panky Fitted Slip with Lace Plus Size

Fitted Slip With Lace

Our Hanky Panky Silky jersey offers coverage under summer sheers, while keeping you cool, thanks to its ultra lightweight, breathable qualities. Our fitted silky slip is available in black and mocha, in sizes XS to XL and 1X to 3X.

Silky 30” Convertible Slip

Silky 30” Convertible Slip

Our convertible slip is super versatile under almost any summer dress. The 30″ mini length ensures it won’t show under short dresses or high slits, and it can be worn strapless, criss-cross, halter-neck, or with traditional straight straps. Available in Mocha and Black in sizes XS to L.

Bottoms

Hanky Panky Signature Lace Bike Short

Signature Lace Bike Short

Swingy summer dresses and sweaty summer days sometimes require a little extra coverage underneath. Our Signature Lace bike shorts are super comfy, non-constricting, and cute! Available in black and chai, in sizes S to L.

Hanky Panky Silky Shorts 861254 & 861254X

Hanky Panky Silky Shorts

If you’re looking for a little more opacity and slipperiness under your dress, try our Silky shorts. They’re made of the same breathable, Hanky Panky Silky jersey as our slips, but keep you covered whether you’re doing cartwheels or caught by a sudden summer breeze. Available in sizes S to XL and 1X to 3X 

Organic Cotton Shirred-Back Betty Brief

Organic Cotton Shirred-Back Betty Brief

If shorts are just too much fabric in the summer heat, try a pair of our organic Supima® cotton undies, like these super cute shirred-back briefs.

Hanky Panky at the Gloria Awards

The Resistance Revival Chorus singing at the Ms Foundation for Women Gloria Awards

The Resistance Revival Chorus

On Thursday, May 3rd, the 30th Annual Gloria Awards were held at the historic NYC landmark, ‘Capitale’ on the Lower East Side. This year’s theme was #OurVoicesOurTime, which honored women of color who stand at the forefront of political, artistic, and social grassroots movements within their communities.

In the clutter of the 24-hour news cycle, the voices of marginalized people tend to get overshadowed, and certain voices are privileged over others. The Ms. Foundation for Women amplifies those unheard voices. It was incredible to share air with a ballroom full of people helping to make a real difference in the lives of so many. The night’s group of powerhouse nominees included Marley Diaz, founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, Elaine Welteroth, former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue, Joanne Smith, Executive Director of Girls for Gender Equality, Monica Simpson, Executive Director of SisterSong, Shannan Reaze, Executive Director of Atlanta Jobs with Justice, and Ava DuVernay, Academy Award-Nominated Director.

Hanky Panky table at the Ms Foundation for Women’s 30th Annual Gloria Awards

The night reignited the flame that had become a low sizzle for many of us over the past year. It also gave us the opportunity to bond with some of the wonderful women that make up the Hanky Panky team. We not only listened to the amazing guest speakers, but started our own discussions about women, race and equality, all over delicious bites of food and refreshing sips of wine. Not to mention, watching the Resistance Revival Chorus sing live was extremely inspiring!

We were proud to represent the Hanky Panky organization, which is a longtime sponsor of both the Ms. Foundation for Women and the Gloria Awards. A magical, inspiring night was had by all!

Hanky Panky: Made in NYC

Hanky Panky’s social calendar was all filled up last week! On Thursday night, May 3, groups of employees went in different directions in order to enjoy the Ms Foundation’s Gloria Awards in downtown Manhattan and to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Made in NYC at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Fifteen years ago, Hanky Panky joined about 20 organizations as a founding member of Made in NYC. Now 25% of all NYC manufacturers—about 1200—are on the roster. This popular initiative, which creates branding campaigns, marketing assistance programs and employment and internship support, brought out high profile individuals, headlined by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who addressed the crowd.

About 25 Made in NYC beverage and food partners kept everyone going back for more, including Gotham Greens, whose hydroponic greenhouse sits atop Hanky Panky’s warehouse and cutting facility in Queens.

Wedding Dresses by Gale

After a rugged winter, Spring is here! And it is inspiring lovers! In just the last week I heard of three wedding engagements of young women I know. This got me reminiscing about the wedding ensembles I have made for sisters and friends over the years. I thought you might like to see them.

Mopsy

After nuptials in the Rabbi’s study on 5th Avenue, my sister Mopsy had the most charming, intimate gathering in Central Park on a perfect day in June of 1983. The dress was made of hand-embroidered linen handkerchiefs combined with fine linen. We all walked over to Cafe des Artistes for dinner and were seated at the table next to Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. *Swoon*

Lida’s second dress, fall 1983: This was my hand-embroidered chiffon scarf phase which evolved out of the handkerchief designs for our company. A version of this dress and cover was a peignoir set available in the Hanky Panky collection.

My sister Debby was married in Charleston, SC in September of 1987. I made her dress from ivory charmeuse and a beautiful Leavers lace that I was also using for Hanky Panky creations at the time.

Toody’s 1996 Stretch Lace, Tulle, and Baling Twine (!) Wedding Ensemble

Toody

Toody is a close equestrian friend. I was thrilled that she wanted something unusual for her outdoor farm wedding in the fall of 1998. Her long sleeved, funnel neck, lacy top and cotton/Lycra tank underneath were from the Hanky Panky collection at the time. I made a skirt from many layers of tulle. For the last last layer I sewed hemp hay-baling twine around the hem, while pulling the tulle, to create a frothy effect. Under that top layer were randomly attached fall leaves.

Sara's Ruffled Chiffon 2003 Wedding Dress by Gale Epstein

The daughter of a mutual friend of Lida and mine, Sara’s outdoor Adirondack summer 2003 wedding called for a soft chiffon floral print with lots of ruffles. So romantic.

Introducing Hanky Panky Lingeriecycle™

Hanky Panky Lingeriecycle

Lingeriecycle: Don’t let your lingerie languish in a landfill.

Introducing Lingeriecycle.™ Hanky Panky has partnered with B.R.A. Bra Recyling Agency to recycle no-longer-wearable lingerie by shredding and converting into carpet padding.

From co-founder Gale Epstein’s very first designs using repurposed handkerchiefs, sustainability has been a core value for Hanky Panky’s 4+ decades in business.

Unlike nearly every other category of clothing made, worn underwear cannot be accepted for reuse. Additionally, synthetic fabrics and trims are not biodegradable.

With all this in mind, we are proud to announce Lingeriecycle, our new sustainability initiative to help divert worn out and no longer wearable items from landfills. Even though there are processing costs, it is an expense that Hanky Panky is covering for our customers in order to take responsibility for our products. It is the right thing to do for the planet.

We hope that in the future, all brands and retailers will take responsibility for the entire lifecycle of the items they sell, and we are proud to lead the way for the lingerie industry to transition into a sustainable future.

How Does It Work?

 

How It Works: Fabric components are recycled into carpet cushion. Metal components are extracted and sent to a metal recycling center. The final result: carpet cushion.

Items accepted for recycling are finely shredded. Metal items such as underwires and hooks are separated out by magnets and sent to a metal recycler. Fabric components are ultimately converted into carpet padding.

Fill the proprietary Lingeriecycle™ envelope with your washed, no-longer-wanted bras and panties (any brand accepted), and take to the post office for accurate postage. You may request up to 5 envelopes with your HankyPanky.com order.

Questions? Check out our Lingeriecycle™ FAQ.

I’m now in the process of moving some still perfectly wearable thongs into my Lingeriecycle™ pile to make room for new favorites:  Signature Lace Betty Briefs and Organic Cotton French Briefs.” -Lida, Co-founder & CEO

Retro Lace

“This style gives me a little control in the middle and clean lines under my favorite dresses.” -Anne, Director of E-Commerce

“Since I’m nearly 5’11”, I often have a hard time with finding the right fit and length in any apparel. The Retro Thong sits perfectly on my hips. The wide lace band is super soft on the skin, and gives a “little hug” providing a totally smooth line over the hips, which is unusual for me due to my height. The V-front and the leg line created by the wide lace band are super flattering, making your tummy look flatter, and your legs look longer. Who doesn’t want that!? Retro Thong is great under dresses and skirts in the summer, and under leggings all year round. It’s my go-to pant on any day when I don’t wear hose.”
-Cindy,  Vice President of North American Sales

Lingerie Madness

Ahh, March. The days get a little longer, the air gets a little warmer and all your favorite things (sports teams, Disney movies, even pop songs) go head to head to find the one to rule them all.

This year, we decided to get in on the “madness”. We made use of Instagram’s new Polling feature in our stories and made your favorite Hanky Panky styles face-off to find out which one our fans and followers love the most!

Here are the results:

WEEK 1, MATCH 1: Classic Thongs

The first week we decided to start with our most well-known silhouette, our thong.
We put Original vs. Low Rise as well as G-string vs. Retro. Classics vs. Coverage!
The winners of the day were Low Rise + Retro.

WEEK 1, MATCH 2: Low Rise vs. Retro

In this battle between low rise and VERY high rise thongs, Low Rise was the fan favorite beating out Retro by a mile!

WEEK 2, MATCH 1: Battle of the Bralettes

In week two, we switched gears from bottoms to tops and let the bralettes duke it out.

In poll one, we had our classic Crossover Bralette vs. the flattering and glamorous Retro Bralette. In poll #2 we had our Padded Triangle Bralette against our Bandeau.

Although this one was close (Crossover + Retro needed a tie break!) the Crossover and Padded Triangle beat out the others to advance to the next poll.

WEEK 2, MATCH 2: Crossover vs. Padded Triangle

When it came down to our two most classic bralette silhouettes, Signature Lace Padded Bralette was crowned the champ

WEEK 3, MATCH 1: Naughty or Nice

On week three we wanted to see who would win in the battle of sexy vs. sweet: Hanky Panky After Midnight® & Bridal.

The first match was between our sweet flounced Peek-A-Boo Teddy or our plunging thong-back Josephine Bodysuit. Match two was our titillating tie-cup Plumage Babydoll vs. the flirty and demure Peek-A-Boo Babydoll. Our first round winners we’re Josephine and our Peek-A-Boo Babydoll.

WEEK 3, MATCH 2: Josephine Bodysuit vs. Peek-A-Boo Babydoll

The old school glamour of Josephine won this poll by a long shot!

WEEK 4, MATCH 1: The Winners Circle

The last week we took the winners from the previous weeks and threw in a wild card: our Signature Lace Cami!

In Poll one, we had our Signature Lace Padded Bralette up against our Low Rise thong. Poll two had the Josephine Bodysuit against the Signature Lace Cami.

Our Low Rise thong beat out the Signature Lace Padded Bralette to get to the finals. Our wild card Signature Lace Cami performed surprisingly well and only beat out Josephine by ONE vote (your vote matters, people) to get to the final round!

 

FINAL VOTE: Low Rise Thong vs. Cami

If there was ever any doubt what our most popular style was, this poll put it to rest.
Our Low Rise was a clear winner from the beginning of this final poll and is our Lingerie Madness reigning champion of 2018!

When we asked our 4911 style what they were going to do now that they’ve won, they said “I’m going to Disney World!”

Good game and see you next year, voters!

-Carrie, Graphic Designer
