What is a gusset and what is the difference between them all?

A gusset is a piece of material sewn into a garment to strengthen a part of it, such as the crotch of an undergarment.  For all of our gussets, we recommend following a few rules:

  • Practice using the gusset at home before using it in public (you might pee on yourself a bit)
  • Always hover! Do not sit on the toilet seat.

Regular Gusset – this means the item will be just like a regular, normal panty with no openings

Double Gusset – these will have 2 pieces of fabric that overlap to provide a discrete opening between the legs for ease of use when using the restroom (think guys underwear for girls).

Easy Access Gusset – this gusset looks like a normal gusset that has been cut down the center. This cut creates a natural opening of the fabric when you sit to use the restroom.  Over the slit, there is a strip of super stretchy fabric that you need to slide to the side to expose the slit allowing you to use the restroom.

Hook & Eye – the panty bottom actually has hook & eye closures, similar to a bra, allowing you to fully disconnect the front part of the garment from the back.
