All about Undergarments

I am often asked about my favorite bras and undergarments, so I decided to dedicate a blog post to my “go-to, can’t-live-without” functional lingerie!

Here are the pieces I wear in constant rotation ::

THE EVERYDAY BRA 

There are three essential types of bras for everyday wear :: a tee-shirt bra, a strapless bra and a racerback bra. I find myself wearing my strapless and racerback bras more often during Spring/Summer since I wear so many off-the-shoulder tops and tank tops in warm weather.

My favorite everyday bras are this one by Panache and this one by Chantelle. Both of these give great lift, support and shape and look smooth under just about everything! I recommend having at least a nude and a black everyday bra. For those of you smaller chested ladies, Chantelle also makes a gorgeous Demi Bra that I have also tried and love.

My favorite strapless bra is the Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Bra. It gives shape and stays in place, even on larger chests!

As far as racerback bras go, I love this affordable one by Wacoal. Racerbacks are so nice to wear with tank tops and sleeveless blouses since you don’t have to worry about seeing bra straps!

THE BRALETTE

A bralette is a layering essential. It’s perfect to wear under dresses and tops that are low-backed or backless as well as low-cut. If you are small chested, you can most-likely get away wearing a bralet alone. If you are busty like me, I recommend owning a few bralettes to layer over your bra. I personally wear mine to cover my bra straps. I recommend having at least two bralettes :: one black and one in either white or ivory. Free People makes a ton of styles, including bandeau {my personal fav} racerback and halter.

PANTIES

I personally only wear thong-style panties, and Hanky Panky’s are my favorite. In my opinion, they are worth the investment since they hold up well and give a seamless look under just about anything. I highly recommend purchasing the majority of your underwear in nude, especially for summer, since it’s the most sheer under white. 

For those of you not familiar with Hanky Panky panties, there is the original cut, low-rise {my preference} and boy shorts.

SPORTS BRAS

Having properly fitting sports bras is so important for giving support and shape during workouts. I recently invested in this one by Chantelle which is not the sexiest-looking bra, but it really gives great shape under tanks and tees for those of you who are busty like me.

I also love Zella sports bras and discovered this pretty cross-back bra at Athleta today that I snagged in both black and hot pink! 

Last but not least, if you don’t own a Lingerie Wash Bag, I highly recommend this $14 one. I have used this one for years and it truly makes a difference it keeping your bras and panties…and even swimwear…in great condition as you launder them!
