If I'm cross-playing as a male, I like to wear boxers over my panties. Weird, I guess but I just don't feel... covered otherwise.

I think whatever you think is most comfortable, but if you're going male to female, you don't want to have any weird lumps where your underwear is bunching under your, for example, latex catwoman costume.

On the flipside, I like to actually wear swimsuit bottoms under some of my costumes as normal underwear, for lack of a better way to say it, is not skimpy enough, and you don't want bumps where there are ties either.

It's really all up to you. ^_^

Based on what you describe the costume as, I'd go with boxer-briefs or bloomers or similar - I think the only important thing other than how you feel is if people can get an upskirt or not. :P

Personally, it depends on the costume. My everyday underwear is pretty androgynous and I only do something else if it would impact the costume.

you should wear gender specific undergarments.
for me i hate it when women have pantie lines and i think thongs are the best clothing invention for women.
i am a freak not a hypocrite so i wear thongs when i crossplay.
no lines, feels more feminine and im not a hypocrite.
so if the dress is tight. do not have lines, wear thong panties.
if dress is loose wear bikini panties tighty whities or boxers.

Panty lines can also be avoided by using lace-type panties where the lace goes to the edge and effectively blends with the skin by not compressing as a tight elastic would and not creating a uniform line, either.

There are also solid panties that are specifically designed to not create panty-lines. And there are also full-body shapers, shaper shorts that go to the knees, et cetera.

After wearing a thong under a set of costume panties (Rocky Horror, w00t) I wouldn't tell anyone to do it unless they found it comfortable with their anatomy - there are many other choices for getting rid of panty lines.
