Do I put my 17 month old daughter in big kid panties or diapers?

Hey, I would love some input on potty training my 17 month old daughter. We just started the process yesterday and she already peed on the potty two times yesterday and once so far today. She has shown so many signs that she is ready. Should I be putting "big kid panties" on her or should she still wear diapers? I hate to put diapers back on her during the days, as I am a SAHM, so I am with her 24/7. I am scared if I put diapers on her during the days then it will pretty much defeat the purpose of "potty training". I feel if she was in big kid panties that she would find out that she doesn't like having a wet or dirty bum (as she doesn't like to with diapers as well). I am very aware that we are going to have lots of accidents, which is completely normal with the potty training stage. If you have any advice can you please kindly share your thoughs or opinions. I am open to anything:) TIA

Since you are home with her... I'd potty train naked and just use a diaper/pull up for sleep and outings (until she's gotten the hang of using the potty while out of the house).

I have two that were 100% successful right from the beginning while naked, but any type of bottoms (underwear, diaper, pull up) and the success rate went down to about 50%. I left them naked at home and used pull ups while sleeping or out of the house. We still had accidents for YEARS with them though.

Then I have the kid that potty trained himself in diapers.... ;)

@ Dove: Great! Thanks for your response. I am definitely going to try it with her being naked (without any bottoms), and see how that goes:)
