You spend hours and hard earned cash updating your closet each season — but there’s one section that’s often neglected. Yes, we’re talking about your underwear drawer.
Intimates are a staple for every woman’s wardrobe because lingerie can make or break an outfit. There are certain pieces that no woman should be without — most notably bras and undies that make you look and feel fab.
Here’s your crash course in lingerie and the few necessary pieces you should have in your drawer:
T-Shirt Bra…try the Calvin Klein Perfectly Fit Modern T-Shirt Bra $46
An everyday t-shirt bra that doesn’t show through is a must-have. Our top pick features molded microfiber cups that contour to your shape for a streamlined fit. Trust us, you’re going to wear it under everything.
Convertible Bra…try the Nordstrom Lingerie Uplunge Deep V-Neck Convertible Bra $28
Finding a good convertible bra is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. This versatile deep plunge design lifts and shapes. And you can adjust the straps to work with any neckline — whether it’s racerback, strapless, crisscross, or halter.
Backless Bra…try the Fashion Forms NuBra Ultralite $36
Sometimes, less is more. A minimalist bra is a must-have for strapless, backless, and other revealing styles. Silicone cups adhere securely to bare skin, and can be positioned for more or less cleavage.
Bralette…try the Free People Intimately Prism Strappy Bra $20
Stock up on lightweight bralettes! They’re comfortable and perfect for carefree, off-duty style. The crisscross strappy back on this bralette will look fab peaking through tanks and open knit sweaters.
Breast Petals…try the Bristol 6 Nippies Skin Adhesive Nipple Concealers $24
Let’s face it, you can’t wear a bra with everything (like super low cut tops and slinky knits). Nipple concealers are an ingenious way to cover-up “head lights.” This pair is made with smooth flesh-tone silicone and re-usable adhesive — so they stick on and stay put.
Matching Set…try the L’Agent by Agent Provocateur Amalea Padded Plunge Bra $98 & Julina Trixie Thong $33
Every woman should have at least one super sexy set of matching lingerie (yes, we know this counts as two items). For us, it’s this little lace duo. The sheer lace and scalloped edges evoke old Hollywood glamour. Wear under your LBD for a formal occasion or to simply spice up date night.
“Barely There” Thong…try the Commando Classic Tiny Thong $22
Everyone needs a no show nude thong. Opt for neutral — as close to your skin tone as possible. This seamless, barely there style comes in four shades to suit every skin tone.
Everyday Thong…try the Hanky Panky Signature Lace Low Rise Thong $20
As far as thongs go, Hanky Panky corners the market on comfy and sexy. The “world’s most comfortable thong” features signature stretch lace fabric, low rise fit, and flattering v waistband. And did we mention no panty lines?
Boyshorts…try the h.dew Riki Cotton Girlshorts $8
The boyshort is the new “it” silhouette. Because it offers a bit more coverage, it’s a great to wear under skirts and dress. Rendered in stretch cotton, this low rise silhouette is available in tons of fun colors and patterns.
