Boxer briefs for curvy ladies?

I want to wear long-legged underpants, to minimize thigh chafing and eliminate wedgies, but I'm not sure how. If you are someone with a large-ish body and hips who wears something like boxer briefs, can you tell me your secrets?

I'm a size 16 woman who prefers skirts to pants. I've recently determined that I'd like to retire my panties in favor of boxer briefs or similar: regular ladies underwear gives me constant wedgies, and I'm often adding a pair of legging-like shorts under my skirts to prevent chafing, so it seems expedient to combine those into one garment. I dislike pettipants and shapewear. What is the best way to do this?
If men's boxer briefs are the best option, how do I size them? I have a high hip-to-waist ratio. And are they uncomfortable with the extra room up front?
Is there a secret, non-shapewear, ideally cotton ladies option I'm not aware of? I would buy the heck out of girly boxer briefs.
