We’re well into the Christmas party season now, perhaps you’ve even attended one or two. When considering your Christmas outfit’s how much of that thought was about the underwear? Not a lot? Don’t worry we anticipated that!
When we talk about underwear, we think about bras—how we’re wearing the wrong size, how they should really fit. Underwear, however, is often overlooked,” Choosing the right type of underwear truly sets the foundation for your entire day. Taking more time to be aware of what you’re wearing can go a long way in helping you look great.
We have worked with five of our biggest suppliers and models from the lingerie industry to bring you the do’s and don’ts. So let’s get to work and correct—the eight most common underwear mistakes you’re probably making, but had no clue.
1. You’re wearing a size too small.
Now is the time to put vanity aside and go a size up in your clothes with your underwear! If they are too tight they can pinch and give you the dreaded muffin top or VPL (visible panty line), not to mention increase your chances of nether-region unpleasantness like a UTI or yeast infection.
2. You’re wearing the wrong underwear with your outfit.
A string may prevent V.P.L, but it’s not always the best underwear for your body-con clothes. If it’s made from textured material, for example, it will still show through a tight, lightweight dress. A more appropriate choice, in this case, might be a seamless boyshort, maybe one with slightly longer “legs” to prevent ride-up. Wearing a high-waisted skirt? Try a high-waisted brief vs. a low-rise bikini to help smooth out the tummy area.
3. Not trying before buying.
Fit is essential when it comes to undergarments. Even the most swoon-worthy bra can lose its “lustre” when the sizing is off. Bra shopping, in many ways, is very similar to shopping for a pair of jeans — every pair fits differently, especially across brands, so trying them on is key. We offer free shipping on orders over ?100. and returns on garments, we’re always available to answer your questions too, as we have knowledge regarding the brands.
4. Not following the care instructions properly
Always read the care instructions. Lace, silk and satin underwear and bras need a little extra love when it comes to washing, and shouldn’t be treated in the same way as their cotton counterparts. Delicate fabrics and constructions often require the use of cold water, hand-washing techniques, mild soap and air drying to maintain their like-new appearance.
5. Not getting rid of worn out pieces
Yes, it can be hard to part with your favourite pieces of clothing, but there comes a time when you just have to “let go”. Bras and underwear that are wearing thin or sporting holes should be ditched and upgraded.
6. You’re not spending enough on your lingerie.
It’s tempting to save money on your lingerie and spend it on that pair of jeans instead—after all, that’s what everyone will see. But even if you are the only one who ever sees your underwear, remember that this is the foundation to your entire look. The right underwear has the power to make or break how you walk, talk, look and feel throughout any given day. A ?5.00 pair of underwear may seem like a great deal to start with but probably won’t stand the test of comfort, or time. The cheaper the underwear, the lower the quality—expect materials that are rough against your skin, exposed seams that dig-in as well as show through clothes, underwear that’s not lined properly, or ill-fit that can cause ride-up. Good quality underwear, on the other hand, will be made with first-rate materials for comfortable, all-day wear, superior attention to fit and will hold both its appearance and fit after numerous washings.
7. You’re wearing light underwear with your dark-colored clothing.
Most people (we hope!) know not to wear dark underwear through light-colored clothing, but did you know you can also see light underwear through dark-colored clothing? Especially if a camera flash is involved. So if you’re wearing a black dress, it’s best to stick to black lingerie.
8. You’re wearing mesh underwear in the summer.
It may seem like mesh underwear is more breathable, but you may be surprised to hear that it’s not. Synthetic materials such as polyester hold and trap heat, moisture and bacteria—putting you at greater risk for yeast infections and UTIs, or just feeling uncomfortable all day. In the summer, it’s best to wear underwear made with natural, breathable materials such as cotton or bamboo that absorb and/or wick moisture away from the skin.
