You may have no idea how a simple tank top can be transformed into a sexy outfit with the right underwear. Having the right underwear not only transforms how you look; it also helps keep your wardrobe simple.
You won’t have to buy unnecessary things to pull off an outfit.
Tee Shirt Bra
Tee shirt bras are among the most important underwear items to have. If you don’t have these bras already, it’s time to get them in nude and black.
These two colors will work with almost every color of tee you own. The no-line cups bra is smooth and perfect for wearing with tees and sweaters. It won’t cause visible bumps under plain tees.
It won’t be the fanYou love keeping your closet updated and full of essential and trendy outfits. You spend hours coming up with the perfect outfit to wear on a date or while out for a drink with your friends.
However, people often miss one simple yet important detail. It’s the underwear that makes the outfit work. Yes, you heard that right. A halter top or crop top often fails because you don’t have the proper base.
It’s just like doing makeup: you also need a perfect base layer to make an outfit work.
You can pull off just about any outfit with certain items in your underwear drawer. Ladies, let’s take a look at the essential underwear you must have, shall we?
ciest piece of clothing you have, but it will be the most breathable and comfortable. You will find yourself using it most often.
Although the pulling and lifting can get annoying, you have to admit a strapless bra is a must-have if you are dressing up for a special occasion. If it’s annoying, it’s because it’s not the right fit.
With strapless push-up bras, the fit is everything. Invest a bit more in a bra with good fabric and a good style, and the strapless won’t be so annoying anymore.
Keep in mind that you should also get a size smaller than usual when buying a strapless bra. You will definitely see the amazing transformation once you get a perfectly fitting one in your underwear drawer.
If you don’t own a plunge bra already, buy one immediately. It’s an amazing piece of innerwear. A plunge bra has a deep V-shaped neckline and a flattering fit.
If you own a V-neck dress or top, a plunge bra is a must. There’s no risk of exposure when you wear a low-cut top or a sheer piece of clothing, and no need for a stick-on to hold things in place. A plunge bra does the work.
Camisoles provide extra coverage under blouses and button-ups. You probably already have a camisole in your underwear drawer. They also work well with sheer tops.
A camisole gives you the flattering shape you want. If you have a low-cut blouse, wear a cami. It will give you the most appropriate look for work because it hides bra straps and any bumps or bulges.
Nude, white and black are the three must-have camisole colors, so stock up, ladies.
Wait…what??? A bra that converts? Yes, it does exist, and you must invest in this fine piece of clothing. It works well with almost any blouse or top, provided you have the best-fitting one for you.
How does it work? The straps come off easily so you can use it as a strapless bra. It also has hooks you can attach to make it into a cross-body, one shoulder or racerback bra, depending on the clothing you choose to wear.
You can always rely on shapewear to smooth out the edges. No more zipper battles, ladies. Shapewear gives you an amazing outline when you wear your favorite dress.
It makes you feel confident so you don’t have to stress about the way you look. High-waisted slimming pants or an all-in-one body shaper will give you that amazing silhouette.
Shapewear gives coverage down to the knees, so you can wear that pencil skirt you’ve always wanted.
Why cotton briefs? They’re practical, just as everyday briefs should be. 100% cotton briefs are super comfortable. That’s something the lacy, fancy silk ones can’t offer.
Buy cotton briefs in bulk. They’re pretty handy on hot summer days.
It’s quite distracting if you have an ill-fitting bra. Many people work out, but even if you don’t, you should have a sports bra. It minimizes the bounce and gives you a flattened shape.
If you are planning to wear a crop top and looking for extra support, a sports bra is just the thing. You should have at least two of these bras in neutral colors.
A slip is something that comes in handy occasionally. You may have the prettiest skirt or dress, except you can see straight through it. Instead of changing the whole outfit, put on a slip.
A black and a nude half slip are definitely needed add-ons to your wardrobe for these sheer occasions.
Tights go perfectly well with a flared dress or A-line skirts. You must have black and patterned tights in your drawer. You can get that killer look if you pair the tights with boots.
You can never go wrong with tights.
These are for occasions when you need something that is barely there. They work well with pencil skirts or that black evening gown and give you that sexy feeling.
Buy a few comfortable G-strings. They sure do come in handy.
Even the sexiest dress can fail if you don’t have the right layers underneath. If you go out of your way to have the perfect look, having these essential undergarments takes the stress out of getting dressed.
