"Granny panties" is defined by android5 at Urban Dictionary ( as a type of panties uncool for the sub-60 wearer. It seems it's not "panties" that aren't worn, but a particular style that are out of style:

Granny pants are usually high cut, with a highly elastic waistband that will come up to at least your belly button. They may also come in floral patterns, pink patterns, or other "old lady" looking styles- just like any other type of underwear, actually, anything's possible stylewise.

"Soft and silky" disagrees on their coolness, saying, "Hey everyone the secrets out! Granny panties aren't just for grannies anymore."
