10 Essential Undergarments Every Woman Must Own

Many women still don’t realise the power of the right undergarments. The correct undergarment for women makes you unbelievably confident & relaxed. The foundation of every outfit is the correct undergarment, it can make or break the look. But the question is how to determine the best undergarments for you. Worry not!

Here, we offers up a list of the top ten pieces of lingerie every woman should have in her closet. Read on to learn what you should be shopping for.

 1. T-Shirt Bra

The first & foremost thing you need in your undergarment wardrobe is a t-shirt bra. It is an everyday accessory to wear with all the tops, dresses, shirts, blouses and whatnot for a modern woman. You could own a few in the basic colours such as black, grey, and nude and own one or two in your favourite colours for some fun. If you have any transparent t-shirts, get a matching bra, too!

2. Bralette

The latest in the fashion scene are bralettes. Usually unlined, non-padded and wire-free, they can be worn under blouses revealing a bit of lace. The best thing to be added to your undergarment list. 

3. Multiway Bra

Every woman has got to have one of these convertible bras. They are great for low-lined necks, straps can be adjusted into halters, crisscrosses, etc. and even strapless. Make sure you try them on in all their different uses before picking the right one for you.

4. Nude Bra

Owning a white basic is great for when you have white colored clothing and semi-sheer blouses. But make sure you try on bra colors that are closest to your skin shade for thinner white clothing.

5. Cotton Panty

The basic cotton panties are great for everyday wear. Own one for every day of the week and try to match them to the colors of your bra, that way you’ll have cute matching sets. Also have a few cotton briefs for women. The briefs avoid harsh knicker lines that would otherwise appear in the folds of your legs and waistline.

6. Seamless Panty

A seamless panty is perfect for the tight skirts, shorts, dresses and work pants. Since the seam lines are close to invisible, they leave the area looking and feeling smooth on the outside, and help avoid the ugly panty-lines.

7. Thong

Thongs are super sexy. Although lot of women find them uncomfortable. Thongs made of light materials such as lace gives that ease and make you feel great compared to the spandex/synthetic based ones. Once you find the right pair, you can wear them under tight dresses and leggings when you want a no-show!

8. Matching Bra and Panty Set

Whether or not you have a partner or a husband, every girl should have a pair of matching bra & panty set. If you don’t want to do it for your partner, do it for your own body’s confidence. Matching lingerie can elevate your sense of carrying an outfit to the next level.

9. Shape Wear

Shapewear perform mini miracles and is definitely a must-have undergarment element. Get that evenly toned body when you wear that fitted dress. It tucks away the cellulite and reduces your waist by a small measurement. Make sure you buy under-bust shapewear to enhance and uplift your bust as well.

10. Night Dress

PJs are one thing, but a sexy night dress is a whole different ball game. It’s every girl’s must must must! Find the right one with a lot of lace and the satin so soft it makes you feel extra glamorous! With the right night dresses comes the matching dress robe. For a quick walk down the hallway in the middle of the night, the robe comes in handy.

Let the shopping spree begin!

Likewise, different lingerie serves different purposes and can be worn for different occasions. Being a modern woman, you should own different lingerie in your wardrobe:

Functionality: Different lingerie is designed for different purposes. Some lingerie is meant to be sexy and alluring, while other pieces are meant to be practical and comfortable. It’s important to have a variety of lingerie so that you have the right piece for whatever occasion you may need it for.

Occasions: Different lingerie is also meant for different occasions. You wouldn’t wear the same type of lingerie to bed every night as you would to a special event or on your wedding night. Having different types of lingerie gives you the ability to dress appropriately (and sexily) for any occasion.
