Origin: Short for knickerbockers.
Panties are a form of underwear designed to be worn by women and girls in the crotch area below the waist. Typical components include an elastic waistband, a crotch panel to cover the genital area, and a pair of leg openings which, like the waistband, are often made of elastic; materials are chosen to be breathable. While panties were originally designed to cover the entire lower half of the female form, the modern version has either no legs or, in some cases, very short ones, and has become progressively more revealing over time. "Panties" is usually used to denote more than one "pair of panties", whilst "panty" is used in such derivatives as "panty liner" and "panty hose". The term is usually applied only to female underwear, with "underpants" often used as a term for the male counterpart.
