If your underwear draw is disorganised, your bras and pants don’t match, your bras are greying and your knickers are losing elastic then here is a definitive guide to organising your lingerie draw. Now for this to work you have to be prepared to spend a bit more and also to lose those lucky pants! If you are ready to do that then read on.
Buying underwear isn’t something we do all at once usually and so we find we have a lot of things in our lingerie draw that doesn’t match or we don’t wear. Also we often replace the bras and knickers we love with the same styles rather than branching out and trying new things. It’s because of this that our lingerie draws can become hectic and we can find that we can never find what we are looking for in the massive pile.
1) Throw everything you don’t wear out.
First of all start off with everything you don’t wear. If you haven’t worn it in the last year that means you aren’t going to wear it and if its brand new and you regretted it the minute you bought it then make some money off it and sell it online. Make sure before you do that that it’s in good condition this will give you a bit more money to play with when buying your new underwear.
2) Get rid of everything that has seen better days.
We all do it. We hoard items we once loved slightly too much which are now threadbare because we have worn them so much. We reason with ourselves that we have to keep those items because we might never find something similar again. Remember, however, that the point is those items can’t be worn. Hanging on to them won’t make the fabric grow back! So let your threadbare lingerie go. If it greying, has a wire poking out, holes or is losing elastic throw it in the bin!
3) Assess what you have
So you should be left with the best items in your underwear draw. Now that will most likely be some mismatching underwear, a few basic bras, sports bras perhaps different styles of briefs. Have a look at what you have and what you need. If you have some great pink knickers that are gorgeous and you would love to wear with a pink bra then have a look for a bra that’s similar to make a set. If you do not like matching sets that’s okay but make sure the bras you have look good with the knickers you have.
4) Think about nightwear
A lot of people when buying underwear don’t think about what they sleep in happy to sleep in a t-shirt and some fluffy socks. If you want to have a massive overhaul of your lingerie, think about what you sleep in too. Some new pyjamas or nighties or a sexy negligee can do wonders for your confidence.
5) Buy more!
Now this doesn’t have to be a lot of lingerie. You are mainly looking for the key items you are missing so you would need at least 3 matching sets that are pretty. Lingerie for every occasion so that means a good strapless or multiway bra, some seamless knickers or thongs that are invisible under clothes and some sexy nightwear.
Finally have a look at your lingerie draw. See how much better it looks! It doesn’t cost a lot to change things. You most likely do not wear what is in that lingerie draw anyway and giving it a much needed makeover is a good idea. You can buy separators for your lingerie draw to divide bras and pants and make it easier to choose form your matching sets. If you want to be really particular you can get clear lingerie boxes so you can put each set in, but who has time for that?
