I used to be a lingerie fanatic. I bought my first bra at 13 (a traumatizing tale for a different day) and quickly graduated from my cotton old faithful to more exciting lingerie. I know I’m not the only one here who thought Victoria’s Secret was the height of sophistication, and once I discovered La Perla and Agent Provocateur, it was game over. I’d feel giddy, sliding on a decadent lingerie set underneath an otherwise innocuous outfit.
Somewhere along the way, I settled into a routine of simple and comfortable (if somewhat boring) daily underwear. I was spending a lot of time working from home in my sweatpants. Anything underneath it became an afterthought. That is, until earlier this year. While attempting a closet overhaul, I stumbled across a long-forgotten trousseau my bridal party had gifted me. My maid of honor organized a lingerie shower (a ripping good time that I highly recommend) at my bachelorette and my friends had not disappointed. Inspired by this collection of sexy, lacy, and frilly underpinnings, I set out to revamp my lingerie drawer. My WFH days are a lot more fun now that I’m pairing oversize sweatshirts with something cheekier below the waist.
Inspired to do the same? Whether you’re wearing them for you (or someone else), these are some of the prettiest pairs of underwear out there.
