We know lingerie means very different things for different girls. For some, it’s about the basic colours, the right fit and mostly comfort, and for the rest, it’s a lot about experimenting with new styles and cuts. Either way, there are some things that each one of us should definitely own to make life easier! Here are some basic lingerie items every girl needs to own.
1. Seamless Knickers
We need these to wear under our fitted dresses, pants and skirts. If you don’t want pesky issues like visible panty lines or contrasting colours , you should opt for a nude coloured, seamless pair. Here is a great option:
If you already don’t own this, invest in one that is slightly smaller in size so that it doesn’t slip off. This is worth the money you spend because it keeps you covered appropriately under off-shoulder or halter dresses. A multiway is ideal when you want that extra support under racerback and one-shoulder tops.
On those days when you need a spill-proof panty that doesn’t get stained easily and that can be your go-to underwear every time you are on your period, then this panty is ideal! We suggest you stock up on a few of these.
A slip on bra - wire-free and not padded - seems just about ideal on days we’re lazing at home. You can get a lot of bralettes that are equivalent and they look good too! They are not just comfortable but it also give the breasts some space to breathe and don’t constrict them like an underwire bra!
Commonly known as a spaghetti top, a camisole is super helpful when you’re wearing something slightly translucent. It works like magic under georgette and lace tops. Pick one that is closest to your skin colour as that blends well and becomes seamless. For black, wear black underneath, but for white, wear a nude colour.
Basic shapewear goes a long way! To get the perfect fit under a bodycon dress or a fitted pencil skirt, picking the right shapewear can help smoothen out your figure and show off the curves you want to flaunt!
When you don’t want to wear a camisole under your clothes, bandeaus come to the rescue. They can be worn on top of bras and work as good underslips! They’re also a great option if you’re wearing off-shoulder tops or tank tops.
