Starting any outfit with a comfortable, flattering set of intimates is key to looking and feeling fantastic in the clothing you wear. The best fitting bras, panties and shape wear showcase your assets in the best way possible and let you go through the day with confidence, even in figure-skimming clothing. To help you stock up on the essentials, here are a variety of comfortable pieces that every lingerie drawer needs.
Cosabella Never Say Never Flirtie Bandeau Bra
This pretty, lacy bandeau bra has no uncomfortable hooks or wires, so you can feel secure without being bothered by anything digging or poking into your flesh. The fabric is so soft, it feels like second skin. Built like a stretchy band, the bra fits more like a tube top, but silicone along the top and bottom keep it from slipping, while side boning provides the extra support your girls need.
Panache Atlantis Solutions Short Panty
These boy shorts are the men’s boxer equivalent for women. They’re super comfortable for every figure type. The seamless construction means you can wear them under a tight pair of pants or dress and no one will know. The undies are made from micro fiber and have a flat, thin elastic along the waist and leg openings for a smooth look.
Hanky Panky Signature Lace Hot Pant
Stretchy lace makes these shorts-like panties perfect for all day, anytime wear. Because they're designed like tiny form-fitting shorts, they won't budge or be visible under your clothing. The pretty lace fabric is very feminine and instantly molds to your curves for optimal comfort and wearability.
Cosabella Smooth Teddy
This body suit flatters by covering and enhancing your assets. Underwire cups keep your girls comfortably situated and supported, control panels help smooth your torso and a thong-back makes any seams invisible. Constructed from bamboo fibers, this do-it-all bodysuit actually can lower your body temperature, so you stay cool no matter what the season or situation.
Parfait by Affinitas Charlotte Brief
The retro-style undies you'll want to wear all the time, this full coverage brief is as comfortable as it is sexy. This pair won't bunch up and will be seamless under clothing. When you think of high-waist undies, you might imagine a granny panty. But, the high waist on this 50s-inspired design is what makes them stylish, And, they also secretly help smooth your tummy, waist and hips.
Mary Green, Cotton/Spandex Hip Hugger Boy Thong
A cross between a thong and a brief, this boy short thong featured a wide band to help streamline your hips, but unlike a regular thong, the back is lower and wider so you never need to stress about it bunching or riding up. It may look like a boy short from the front, but the rear had minimal coverage. They also sit low on the hips, so they won't show underneath lower rise pants. The cotton/ spandex combination is made for ultimate comfort and daily wear. Plus, you can buy them in almost any color combination imaginable.
