Crotchless Lingerie: All the Sensual Secrets to Know

Strappy Crotchless Panty

Are you ready to take your lingerie game up a notch? Let’s talk about something daring and unexpected: crotchless lingerie. This lingerie adds a playful twist, blending fun, flirtiness, and boldness in perfect harmony. 

Whether you’re new to lingerie or a seasoned pro, crotchless lingerie can add some excitement, confidence, and spice to your love life. 

Join us for a dip into the alluring world of crotchless lingerie – what it is, its history, and why it’s such a popular style for lingerie, and featuring some of our best-loved pieces to ignite your passion. 


Before getting into why our customers adore crotchless lingerie, let’s first clarify what it is. 

The name says it all: it’s underwear or a sexy piece of lingerie that’s open at the crotch. The opening can be more discreet with a slit opening (like boxers). It could also be more overt with a completely open crotch area or even backless. 

Styles of crotchless lingerie can include:

  • Panties (thongs, bikinis, hipster, high-waisted)

  • Teddy/bodysuit

Now let’s take a quick peek into the history of crotchless lingerie and its evolution over time.


You may be surprised to learn that “ouvert” (that’s French for open) underwear isn’t some new trendy fad; they’ve actually been around for a long time, although crotchless lingerie looked very different than today’s version – think open-crotch pantaloons. Not sexy at all.

In fact, crotchless undergarments used to be the norm for women when they wore many layers with long dresses and petticoats. Seems crazy to think that when it was scandalous for women to even show off an ankle, they were actually wearing crotchless underwear underneath. But it was considered to be practical, hygienic, and even modest because they didn’t have to undress to use the bathroom.

However, as women’s fashion changed over the years with shorter dresses and skirts, crotchless lingerie became a novelty item and worn more for sensual rather than functional purposes. Nowadays, crotchless underwear is viewed as a sultry statement piece for special (sexy) occasions. Quite the change!


In a recent poll on our Instagram page, we asked our followers to choose between a few crotchless and non-crotchless pieces. Can you guess which pieces won every time? 

Spoiler alert: Everyone chose the crotchless lingerie pieces. But why? 

Here are some of the most common responses:

  • Empowerment: There’s something indescribably empowering about putting on a piece of clothing so bold and unapologetically sexy. It screams body confidence and helps women embrace their desires. When wearing crotchless lingerie, you’re sending a clear signal to your partner about what you’re in the mood for, no explanation needed. If you struggle with initiating, this can be a simple, direct way of making your sexy intentions known.

  • Convenience: You can’t deny the ease and accessibility of crotchless lingerie. You can enjoy peak pleasure without the awkward gymnastics to remove clothing. Not to mention, it makes having quickies even easier. An open crotch can also mean less friction in sensitive areas and more breathability. And less adjusting and fixing. Plus, because there isn’t anything blocking the way during intimacy, you can wear your lingerie longer to get more use out of it.

  • Spontaneity: Wearing crotchless lingerie means you’re ready to go whenever and wherever the moment strikes. Surprise your partner on a date night with a quick peek as you step out of the car or whisper in their ear about your, ahem, “availability” during dinner. This can help heighten the anticipation for later and be the best kind of tease. For many women, wearing provocative clothing can help them explore and live out fantasies, like doing something a bit naughty or forbidden.
