Vibrating panties are one of those sex toys that can spice up your love life outside your bed, though not all of them live up to the hype. To help you choose the best vibrating panties for your naughty activities, we’ve done some research to find the top models on the market.
When choosing the six products for our reviews, there were a few features we made sure to include. First, these models needed to be as quiet as possible to maintain some discretion when used out of the house. We also chose models that offer couples play as well as solo use. We included both clitoral and G-spot models, some with panties while others are sold on their own. These products come with a wide variety of speeds and patterns that you can adjust as you see fit. If you’re interested in the best vibrating panties but still aren’t sure which one is right for you, keep reading.
The concept of the Bluemotion Nex/1 caught my attention right from the start. A mini wearable panty vibrator, which comes with lace panties and allows for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi control – what can be more intriguing? I’ve always wanted to try something like that with my boyfriend – a little game in a public place – and this gave me the perfect opportunity.
The device comes in a beautiful iPhone-like box, with everything packed neatly inside. Included in the package are the device itself, a USB cord, a satin storage bag, blue lace panties, and an instruction booklet. Everything looks and feels like a high-end, hi-tech, and even high-fashion device, thanks to the sleek design, velvet-smooth silicone, and amazing capabilities. These include multiple vibration options (even customizable ones!) and remote app use for long distances or Bluetooth connection when in the same room.
Why are we impressed?
The toy can be controlled manually (3 intensity levels, plus 2 patterns to choose from) or via an app (which is much more fun if you play with your boyfriend). I tried both and the possibilities of the app impressed me a great deal. Not only does it allow for a ton of patterns in addition to the manual ones, but you can even link it to your Apple Music or Spotify and the vibes will be synched with your favorite tracks. I tried this mode with some Rammstein songs and it was mind-blowing. Also, your partner can control your toy from a distance, which is fantastic for long-distance relationships.
It’s worth mentioning that the device has rather long battery life. Mine lasted for 3 full sessions before it needed to be recharged.
What negatives must you be aware of?
The public play is a bit tricky with this device. While the vibes are somewhat discreet and relatively silent, you should keep in mind that you can’t use this toy in the office or any other quiet place. Otherwise, everyone will be wondering whose phone is vibrating that hard and why no one is answering it. Just opt for a location that is crowded and loud enough to cover the vibrations to not draw extra attention. I’d also advise wearing skinny jeans or other tight pants over the panties.
The Secrets Vibrating Lace Thong is one of the best-rated vibrating panties on the market due to the high quality and ease of use, not to mention how well it works. This model is also cheaper than some of the other products available, so you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy it.
The pretty lace thong hugs your body but isn’t one size fits all, so it may be a bit snug for some ladies. It has a little pocket that the vibrator fits in, allowing you to adjust the panties positioning as needed so the vibrator is hitting the right spot.
The vibrator itself has a curved and tapered design, like a small saddle, so it fits nicely against your natural curves. It includes three speeds and two patterns, so you can adjust it for some teasing or finish the job, whichever you’re in the mood for.
This vibrating panty comes with a remote control as well, which you can use yourself or hand off to your partner, allowing him to surprise you during dinner, a movie, or a naughty night out with some friends. This remote control can be used from up to 10 meters away, so he can even tease you from a distance.
Both pieces require batteries to power them. Luckily, the first set is included, so you can get started as soon as this set arrives at your door.
If you’re interested in the best wireless vibrating panties, the Lovehoney Desire is a good option to try out. This vibrator piece is also smooth and comfortable, so it feels good on a variety of levels.
This model is made of smooth silicone, with a saddle shape that fits nicely against the natural curves of your body. It is completely waterproof, which means you can take it into the shower with you if you like, as well as using it in the bedroom, when watching television, or out on the town for some spicy adventures. It is also easy to clean after it has done its job.
There is a button on the vibrator piece that allows you to turn it on and adjust the pattern and intensity to suit your pleasure preferences. You can also download the Desire by Lovehoney app for easily changing settings during use. This app is easy to use, even for beginners.
Another handy feature of the app is that you can choose to use it solo or pair your phone with your partner’s phone, giving them the ability to control the settings for some couple’s play. The only downside to the app is that it isn’t customizable to replay the settings you like without you adjusting it manually.
Included with this set is a pair of pretty panties with ties for the perfect fit. It also comes with the USB for charging the vibrator and a locking zippered case.
The Mantric Panty Vibrator is a compact model that is comfortable against your skin. It is made of silicone, which is smooth and supple. Its curved shape fits nicely against you once you have it positioned to your liking. It is also soft and flexible for an even more comfortable piece.
This hidden vibrator also includes a contoured tip, which cocoons your clitoris for the best stimulation possible. Once you’re ready to use it, there are seven patterns and three speeds to choose from, so you can take your time with it or finish quickly when you only have a few minutes to spare.
This piece is rechargeable, using a magnetic USB cable, leaving the surface of the vibrator smooth, with no cracks or crevices to collect moisture and destroy the piece. It is even waterproof, so you can use this handy device in the shower or bath, plus cleanup is a breeze.
The remote control allows you to alter the settings when the vibrator is tucked away in your panties. You can also hand it off to a partner for some couple`s activities. You do need to be quick with it, though, since the remote can disconnect from the vibrator after a couple of minutes. A handy keychain loop lets you carry it with you wherever you go.
This remote vibrating panties set has a runtime of about 60 minutes, with a similar charge time.
For some ladies, the best vibrating underwear is a hands-free one. The Love Rider Vibrating Panties gives you this type of convenience, plus they are a pleasure to wear almost anywhere you like. These discreet panties are almost silent, so you don’t need to worry about anyone finding out about your naughty secret unless you want them to.
The panties themselves are pretty and soft, though they are recommended for ladies that are UK size 12-14 for the best fit. They are machine washable, though the vibrator isn’t, so be sure to remove it before you toss the panties in with your other delicates.
Attached to the panties is a pliable rubber dildo with a small bullet vibrator that fits inside before you insert the piece into your body. There is a small button on the bullet that you can push when you want it turned on. Though nobody can see it, it isn’t easy to do so discreetly in a public setting, so a remote control added to this piece would be helpful. There is one setting, so you only need to push the button once to get it going. You can also use the bullet on its own if you like.
Another great feature that this G-spot vibrator has going for it is the price, which is extremely cheap when compared with other vibrating panties, so you don’t need to spend a fortune for some personal pleasure.
The Fifty Shades of Gray Panty Vibrator is part of the official Fifty Shades of Grey Pleasure Collection, which was inspired by the books of E. L. James and are even made with the author’s approval. It even includes a large name logo on the front of the remote, making it a bit less discreet when using it out in public, though not impossible to enjoy.
Some great features make this one of the best remote control vibrating panties set around. The vibrator piece is saddle-shaped, so it conforms to the natural curves in your most private area. It is made of soft silicone that has a velvety feel against your sensitive skin, increasing comfort while maximizing pleasure. It is also waterproof for even more usage options and easy cleanup.
There are ten patterns and six speeds to choose from using the remote control. Though the instructions are limited, there are only a few buttons, so it’s easy to figure out what you’re doing after only a few minutes.
The vibrator is rechargeable using the included USB cable. The remote requires a CR2032 battery to function, which is included with the set. There is also a handy satin bag included with the other pieces. This makes it easy to store all the parts together in one place, plus gives you a handy travel bag for taking your vibrating underwear with you wherever you go.

Things to Consider
Vibrating panties are great for couple’s play, especially if you hand a remote over your partner, letting them take control for a while. They can also be used during your private time, with a partner or on your own, to stimulate you and enhance your bedroom activities. If you’re considering buying one of these models but aren’t sure what to look for, the following sections can help.
Features to consider when choosing a panties vibrator
When choosing the best vibrating panties, there are a few features you may want to check out. This will ensure that you’re getting the right model to meet your needs and sexual preferences.
Clitoral or G-spot?
There are two options when choosing a panty vibrator. These are clitoral and G-spot models. Each of them offers a unique experience, so you need to consider their differences before choosing one.
Most of the models in our reviews are clitoral vibrators. These stay outside of your body, resting against the natural curves of your private area. They stay near or on your clitoris, stimulating this area with different functions. The G-spot models, like the Love Rider Vibrating Panties, include a piece that is inserted inside of you for a different type of stimulation. There is no right one to choose since no woman likes exactly the same sensations as another woman.
Whether you prefer the clitoral or G-spot models, you should look at the size of the unit and how discreet it is. Some of these are bigger than others, so aren’t very portable. The smaller pieces can be slipped into a purse or pocket when you’re not using them. Larger ones are best used closer to home when doing some chores, shopping online, or watching a movie.
What can be used to control it
There are a few different options when it comes to controlling your new vibrating panties. One option is a simple on/off switch, like the one on the Love Rider Vibrating Panties. Though this is easy to use, it isn’t very discreet since you would need to reach into your pants or under a skirt to press this button. This makes it almost impossible to adjust when in a public setting without running to the bathroom first.
Some of the best vibrating panties come with a remote control, including the Fifty Shades of Gray Panty Vibrator. You still need to turn on the vibrator but then you can control the functions using the remote control, keeping your hands out of your pants while you enjoy the stimulation. You can also hand the remote to your partner to allow them to control the different settings and speeds. The downside to the remote control is that they have a limited range, so if the remote is too far from the vibrator, it no longer works.
The best control options are the ones that allow you to download an app on your smartphone to control the vibrator. This way, you can use the app yourself, plus your partner can download it as well. You can give them control, no matter where they are, making these the best vibrating panties for long-distance relationships.
The materials used on the vibrating panties is extremely important since it is going to be against your most sensitive areas. If the material is uncomfortable, you aren’t going to want to use your new pieces.
One popular material for use on these vibrators is silicone. Models like the Mantric Panty Vibrator choose this material because it is soft, supple, and smooth. It also has some flexibility to it, so it bends with you as you move while maintaining its position in your panties. This material is also easy to clean with some simple soap and water, keeping stains and sticky messes from soiling your new toy.
Another popular material is rubber, which is similar to silicone in flexibility and smoothness. This is usually used on the internal models since they have a bit more give to them, allowing you to fit them into yourself comfortably.
Though having one speed on your new vibrating panties can still offer some pleasure, having some variation to the speeds and patterns of the vibrations can enhance your experience in many ways. Sometimes you may be looking to feel the sensations as a way to tease yourself, so the lower and slower functions can offer some pleasure without bringing you to climax. This is fun for couples since you can get yourself warmed up beforehand and finish the job when you’re together in the bedroom.
Other times, you may be having a solitary day where you want to be alone or you don’t have a significant other to play with. The different settings can simulate being with a partner, offering varying stimulation before you turn up the vibrations and finish yourself off.
The different speeds and patterns are also great to offer different types of stimulation. Some women are more sensitive than others, so they climax much quicker. Other women need a bit more pressure and faster vibrations to get the job done, so having a variety to choose from makes units like the Lovehoney Desire a better choice for all types of women.
The power source is another important feature to look into before buying these units. Many of the vibrators, as well as the remote controls, need batteries to run, so you need to keep a stock of the proper ones to ensure the vibrator doesn’t die when you’re in the middle of using it. It also won’t be easy to change the batteries when in a public setting, so you’ll need to carry extras with you and have a bathroom available if the batteries run out when you’re out of the house.
Rechargeable models are a bit more environmentally-friendly since you aren’t constantly changing the batteries on a well-used toy. The runtime varies on these units, though, so you may want to keep track of how long you’re using it so a pleasurable session isn’t cut short. You should also consider how long it takes to charge the unit. For instance, the Mantric Panty Vibrator has a charge time of about an hour, so you don’t need to wait too long before it’s ready to go.
The runtime on any of these types of toys is one of the most important features to look at. If you can only use it for a short time, there isn’t much point in trying to wear them out in public since most of the time it will just be sitting in your panties doing nothing. The longer the runtime, the more use you’ll get out of it.
Of course, you likely won’t just leave it in there running for the entire time. The beauty of these devices is that they can be turned on and off for some stimulation throughout the day. You don’t want one that runs down and stops working, though. A longer runtime, like the 120 minutes offered by the Lovehoney Desire, will ensure that you get the most pleasure possible throughout the day.
If the panties are included
Though not every model in our reviews offers this feature, many of them do come with a pair of panties to use with the vibrator. This is handy since the panties are designed to be used with that specific vibrator, so they will work together for the most comfortable fit possible.
The flaw with these panties is that many of them aren’t designed to fit every woman. They may have a size range that they fit comfortably, so if you aren’t in this range, they will be either too big or too snug for your body. If this is the case, you’ll likely use your own panties anyway, making the included pair useless. Of course, some models, like the Lovehoney Desire, include panties with adjustable ties, so they are a better fit for varying shapes of women.
Technically, yes, you can use these vibrators in a public place. The downside is that they can be a bit loud, due to the vibration. In a quiet restaurant, others around you may hear the sound of the unit buzzing. Louder areas, like clubs or concerts, won’t have such issues as the other sounds in the area will cover the sound of the vibrator. You should also consider where you sit since a wooden bench could pick up the vibrations, while a padded couch will be a bit more discreet.
The best vibrating panties for long-distance relationships are the OhMiBod BlueMotion NEX|1. This model has the option of controlling it with an app, so there is no maximum distance. As long as you have your phone linked to your partner’s, you can select the option to give them control and they can use it to turn it on and off and control the settings from wherever they are.
All of the models in our list of best vibrating panties recommend that you use lubricant with these products. Of course, you shouldn’t overuse the lubricant since this could result in the unit slipping around in your panties if nothing is holding them in place. A small amount on the tip is best for smoother movements and great results.
With so many varieties of vibrating panties on the market, it can be hard to choose the right one. Though all of the items in our reviews are great models, we have a few favorites.
For long-distance relationships, the best device is the Bluemotion Nex/1. This amazing model offers both app and Bluetooth function, making couple’s play easy and fun, no matter how much distance is between you. It also comes with everything you need, including a pair of sexy panties to hold the toy in place.
Our second choice is the Secrets Vibrating Lace Thong, which includes a pocket for the saddle-shaped vibrator. The vibrator is battery-powered, easy to use, and includes two patterns and three speeds. There is also a remote control included.
The Lovehoney Desire is a curved silicone vibrator with eight patterns and twelve intensity levels, a runtime of 120 minutes, and it is waterproof. It can be controlled with buttons on the unit or the Desire by Lovehoney app, which you download on your phone, as well as your partner`s. It also includes an adjustable panty and a zip case for storage and travel.
