8 Essentials For Your Underwear Drawer

A great underwear drawer has pieces for every occasion: whether it’s that special lingerie for date night, or that supremely comfortable T-shirt bra for when you’re dressing casually,

Create a fresh undies drawer with pieces for every type of lifestyle and occasion with our 8 essential pieces, complete with tips on how best to wear them.

1 - Cotton Briefs

The most essential part of any woman’s wardrobe, the basic cotton brief is a versatile and durable choice of undergarment. Not only are cotton briefs an easy option to throw on when you’re in a rush, but pure cotton underwear is also hypoallergenic, and gentle against your skin. Pick up a pack of super soft cotton briefs as the baseline to your underwear drawer.

Wear basic cotton briefs with anything loose-fitting, such as a pleated skirt, A-line dress or jeans.

2 - T-Shirt Bra

The perfect T-shirt bra is comfortable and invisible, making it the ultimate underwear essential that can be worn under both casual and formal outfits. Whether you opt for padded, half-cup, full-cup, or unwired, a high quality T-shirt bra accentuates your natural curves without being attention-seeking, and provide comfort and support for hours on end.

The seamless elegance of the T-shirt bra means it can be worn discreetly under fitted tops and dresses.

3 - Boy Shorts

The female equivalent of men’s boxers, boy shorts offer supreme comfort and support, and have the added bonus of creating a sleek and seamless silhouette. Choose a pair of divinely fitted Sloggi shorts, that are sexy and feminine without being revealing.

Boy shorts provide extra discretion and protection, and are perfect for wearing with short skirts and dresses.

4 - Lacy Bra

No underwear drawer is complete without a beautiful lacy bra, and just because it looks good doesn’t mean you need to compromise on comfort. A high quality full cup lace bra adds a touch of sensual femininity to even the most simply bra design, and makes you feel sexy without missing out on the support you need.

A lacy bra is best worn under shirts and other loose-fitting tops.

5 - Brazilian Briefs

Brazilian briefs are another essential. The Brazilian design is a low-slung thong style brief with minimal coverage, perfect for wearing discreetly under a mini skirt or shorts. Ideal for the beach or a sexy summer night on the town, choose breathable Brazilian briefs made from cotton or silk to feel fresh and comfortable while looking amazing.

6 - Sports Bra

Whether you’re into fitness or not, every woman needs a great sports bra in her underwear drawer. Especially useful for your time of the month when many women may need that extra support, a sports bra is supremely comfortable and allows you freedom of movement, whatever you’re doing. Whether you’re pumping iron in the gym, or having a busy day running errands, a well-made sports bra is a must-have for your undies collection.

You can wear a sports bra as part of your athletic wear, under a casual tee, or even with your workwear, and stay feeling comfortable and supported all day long.

7 - Control Pants

Invisible control knickers are the ultimate confidence booster. The seamless design and super-stretchy material helps create a sleek, sensual silhouette, giving you the confidence you need to take on the day. The high-waisted design helps control and shape your figure and accentuate your best assets. Control underwear doesn’t need to be a big deal: discover affordable everyday shapewear from Sloggi.

The beauty of shapewear is that it can be worn discreetly under anything, but it works particularly well under bodycon dresses and fitted skirts.

8 - Sexy Bodysuit

Every woman needs a sexy lingerie piece in her wardrobe, even if it’s just for herself. A sensual bodysuit that flatters your figure is the ultimate showstopper, and it will make you look and feel divinely feminine. Whether you’re dressing up for a special someone, or lounging about the house with a glass of wine on your own, there’s nothing quite like a bodysuit (complete with suspenders if that’s your thing) to make you feel wonderful in your own skin.

So, there you have it: the 8 essential garments for a perfectly balanced underwear drawer. Wherever life takes you, every day begins with comfortable, flattering undies that make you look and feel your best.
