A hastily assembled, often half-assed shelter. Hobos often live in shantys. Poor people in crappy countries often build entire shanty-towns. Pirates also make Shantys out of leaves, sticks and other things, on islands, to sleep in.
I shall fashion a shanty from discarded cardboard and dwell within it.

Panties worn by those interested in scatology, or scat play, for the exclusive purpose of defecating in; a throwaway pair that can be disposed of after using for its intended fetishistic purpose, thus avoiding burdensome cleaning.

(A portmanteau of "shit" and "panties".)
Knowing she was going to scat play later that night, Cheryl put on her shanties in the morning, and had 3 cups of coffee, 2 and-a-half packs of cigarettes, a big lunch, and treated herself to Fiber One bars liberally throughout the day.

Since my hemorrhoid surgery, I have been wearing shanties every day, rather than ruin my silk Victoria's Secret.

Shorts that look like panties
I love that girls outfit, but her shanties are giving her a cameltoe.
