Do you love buying lingerie? I do.

It’s easy to buy all kinds of exciting or cool lingerie pieces and wind up with a drawer full of things you never wear, or find you don’t have the piece you need to go with your outfit, so today we are working on a list of the basic pieces you need to round out your lingerie wardrobe. You should ideally populate your basics with nude and black. Black clothes need black lingerie underneath – nude will show through. Flesh-toned nudes are ideal under most other colors including white.

Once you have the basics covered in nudes and blacks it’s fun to buy items in other colors.


Lingerie Items Every Girl Needs

A good t-shirt bra.

Actually you need multiple t-shirt bras. Ideally they should have a smooth finish, give you some lift and support, hold you in all the right places, and be the day to day workhorse of your bra wardrobe.

A push up bra.

When necklines dip and plunge you need a little lift.

A strapless bra.

A good strapless bra that has been fitted to you will stay put when you raise your arms above your head, and will hold the girls in place. It also won’t squeeze you, give you fat rolls over the top of the band or be uncomfortable to wear.

Shapewear bottoms

Nothing will smooth out your derriere under a fitting dress quite like shapewear. Even the biggest movie stars and models in the world wear industrial strength power pants on the red carpet, so don’t feel bad about needing a little help yourself! Not only will they make your cellulite dimples disappear, your shapewear undies will also do away with visible panty lines all while holding your jiggly bits in.

Smoothing briefs.

Most of us don’t want to wear power pants everyday, but we still want a nice smooth silhouette. Smoothing briefs are the answer.


Cotton thongs are the easiest underpinnings to wear. They help you avoid panty lines, don’t ride up or move, and are an ideal daily pair of undies.

A Slip

Under a skirt and blouse or under a dress, a slip keeps everything smooth and stops static electricity from sticking fabric to your legs. If you wear pantihose or tights a slip is essential.

Plus they look and feel super sexy!

Wear a black slip under black, a nude under anything else. Choose the right length slip to work with the hemline you are wearing.
