The Must-Have Underwear
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.
According to Faveable, 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.
With the right underwear, you can pull off anything you wear quite graciously, so hurry up and stock up on these items.

The Centre has continued the Naga peace talks with the Isak-Muivah faction of National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN-IM) leaders, but negotiations face roadblocks as the Naga leaders are adamant in their main demands for a separate Constitution and flag.
The sources aware of these developments said that the Centre was hopeful that a successful solution of the six decades-long peace talks would arrive at a logical conclusion, but in the recent statements, Naga leaders have accused the Centre of offering post-solution options.
Sources quoting the stand of Naga leaders said that NSCN's stand was loud and clear that it would not follow the forbidden route to the Naga solution that was linked to foregoing the Naga national flag and Constitution, which is the face of the Naga political struggle and identity.
The Naga leaders have also said that the Centre has been using divisive policy and flattery in the name of finding the Naga political solution when the matters heated up.
When the Centre resumed the peace process in September this year and sent the former special director of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) A.K. Mishra as the Ministry of Home Affairs' emissary to the rebel outfit's chief negotiator and general secretary T. Muivah, he assured him (Muivah) that the peace talks would be initiated under the original framework signed in 2015, a source in the Naga rebel group said.
"Here we are talking about the Naga national flag and Yehzabo (Constitution), the two issues that are holding up the Naga solution under the ongoing Indo-Naga political talks in Delhi.
"The chequered history of the Indo-Naga political issue is clear enough before us, with accords and agreements that were never meant to be implemented in letter and spirit", an important office-bearer of the rebel outfit said while criticizing the governments' stand.
Accusing the Centre, he further accused the Centre of persuading the Naga people again to accept whatever is being offered to hurry up the Naga talks.
On the invitation of the Centre, the senior leaders of the NSCN-IM including T. Muivah arrived in the national capital on October 6 this year to hold another round of talks with the Centre.
Both, the Centre and the Naga leaders had indicated their keenness on resolving this long pending issue by the end of this year in an amicable manner.
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma, who is also chairman of North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), and Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio had been actively involved in the resumption of the peace talks and taking it forward to a logical conclusion.
Soon after the transfer of Nagaland Governor R.N. Ravi, who was appointed as the Centre's interlocutor for the Naga peace talks on August 29, 2014, to Tamil Nadu, the peace talks resumed on September 20 in Kohima when the Centre representative met the Naga leaders and invited them to visit Delhi for further rounds of peace talks.
The NSCN-IM and the other outfits entered into a ceasefire agreement with the Government of India in 1997 and over 80 rounds of negotiations with the Centre have been held in the past in successive governments. (IANS/JB)

The series decider for the Test series between England and India will now be played at Edgbaston from July 1 next year, said the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Friday. India is currently leading the series 2-1 before the fifth Test at Old Trafford was cancelled hours before the start due to concerns over COVID-19 outbreak in the tourists' camp.
"The fifth match of the LV= Insurance Test Series between England Men and India Men has been rescheduled and will now take place in July 2022. The match, which was due to take place last month at Emirates Old Trafford, was called off when India were unable to field a team due to fears of a further increase in the number of Covid-19 cases inside the camp," said an ECB statement.
"With India leading the series 2-1, the concluding fifth match will now take place from July 1, 2022, at Edgbaston, following an agreement between the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)," added the statement.
ECB also said that due to the rescheduled Test, the white-ball series between England and India will now start six days later than originally planned. The T20I series will begin on July 7 at Ageas Bowl with Edgbaston and Trent Bridge hosting the second and third matches respectively on July 9 and 10. It will be followed by the ODI series starting on July 12 at The Oval followed by Lord's and Old Trafford hosting the second and third ODI on July 14 and 17 respectively.
"Ticket holders do not have to take any action as all tickets will remain valid for the equivalent rearranged matchday at their host venue. Host venues will communicate the new fixture details to ticket purchasers and the options available to them, including the timeframe for requesting a refund if they are not able to attend the new match day," further said the statement.
"We are very pleased that we have reached an agreement with BCCI to creating a fitting end to what has been a brilliant series so far. I'm very grateful to all the venues involved for the cooperation they've shown in allowing us to reschedule this match. I'd also like to thank Cricket South Africa for their support and understanding to allow these changes to be possible," said Tom Harrison, the CEO of the ECB.
"We would like to apologise again to fans for the disruption and disappointment of September events. We know it was a day that so many had planned long in advance. We recognise that accommodating this extra match means a tighter schedule for the white ball series. We will continue to manage our players' welfare and workloads through next year while we also continue to seek the optimum schedule for fans, players and our partners across the game."
"I am delighted that the England-India Test series will now have its rightful conclusion. The four Test matches were riveting, and we needed a fitting finale. The BCCI recognizes and respects the traditional form of the game and is also mindful of its role and obligations towards fellow Board Members. In the last two months, both BCCI and the ECB have been engaged in discussions and our efforts were aimed at finding a suitable window. I thank the ECB for their understanding and patience in finding an amicable solution," said BCCI Secretary Jay Shah. (IANS/JB)
