Boy shorts, also known as boy short panties, boys' cut, booty shorts, shorties, tap panties or boyleg briefs are a sort of lingerie that goes all the way down the hips.

They are a relatively new, but increasingly popular style of lingerie among women and are named for their similarity in looks to men's knit boxer shorts, which themselves are a variation on traditional boxer shorts. Some even resemble men's briefs, complete with fly and contrast trim. Unlike men's briefs, however, this style is usually lower cut, and is designed to fit and flatter a woman's figure.

Boy shorts often cover most of the buttocks area, but this is not always the case with thong-back lingerie also widely available, also in addition to this, they do not cover the upper thigh area either like the French Knickers do.

Boy shorts are a popular choice since most of them may avoid displaying a prominent visible panty line provided they don't ride up, and yet are a modest and comfortable alternative to thongs and conventional panties. They are also popularly matched with a camisole top and worn as loungewear. Cotton-spandex blends and lace are the most popular materials for boy shorts.

The term boy shorts can also refer to bathing suit bottoms in the same style.
