How To Shop For Lingerie

July 29, 2014

Darcy Pentel of Sirens at the Beach helps us shop smarter for pretty little underthings

If you haven’t refreshed your lingerie wardrobe lately, you may have a little catching up to do. The right pieces and the right fit go a long way in helping a woman’s wardrobe and t-confidence.

PLAN AHEAD   Take stock of your own inventory and keep in mind which items you’re shopping for. A well-stocked lingerie wardrobe includes a mix of everyday bras and panties plus comfy loungewear and a few special occasion pieces. Different tops call for different bras, so a woman might have a t-shirt bra, a push-up bra, a non-padded bra and a strapless bra in her regular rotation.

GET FITTED   So many women buy the wrong size lingerie. Ask for a professional to measure your bra size so you know you are investing in a piece that will give you the best fit. Women are often surprised when their correct size is different than the one they’ve beeen buying for years!

SHOPPING FOR A SPECIFIC OUTFIT? BRING IT!   If you’re on a mission to find a piece of lingerie for a specific outfit, be sure to bring that item to the store to try on with pieces before you buy. You can make sure you get the best possible fit and invisibility.

GO OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE  Wearing lingerie doesn’t have to be reserved for special occasions. Comfortable loungewear can be sexy or conservative and casual. Flowy tanks, robes and even rompers are great for hanging around the house. On the flip side, try mixing sexier pieces under everyday wear.

BE ADVENTUROUS   Much like a stylish outfit can boost a woman’s confidence, beautiful lingerie set can help a woman feel amazing. Try wearing a lacy bra or fun panties on days that might be stressful. Knowing there is something sexy underneath can totally change a mood. Instead of worrying about panty lines or support, women can be ready to take on the world.
