So-called Granny panties aren’t just a joke anymore. Some people say they’re a sign of the times. Lingerie lines like Rihanna’s Fenty brand and Victoria’s Secret are selling full-coverage underwear. Swimwear lines like Wanderlust are also following the full-coverage trend. Many women see full-coverage as both comfortable and a badge of feminism.
