Spring cleaning is not just deep cleaning all the nooks and crannies in your house, it also includes purging all unnecessary clutter and unused items.
Let’s chat about your underwear drawer. When was the last time you cleaned it out? I do a deep clean and purge at least once every six months. I purge any undies or bras that are uncomfortable or I don’t wear.
Here’s your reminder to get your butt in gear and to do the same!
So now, let’s talk about what pieces I actually keep in my drawer and wear every day.
Cami Bra. I’m wearing this as we speak. It’s technically called a Brami because it’s a cami meets a sports bra. I have it in the shade, “Ballet” in size: XS/S. It’s become my favorite thing ever the past few weeks. I wear it as my sleep top or sleep bra. I wear it as a cami alone or as a bra under tee shirts. The comfort level is amazing. I’m also ordering it in white and black since I know these will be worn basically daily all summer long. Quick note- I have an incredibly short torso, so I was nervous about the straps not being adjustable. The straps are so stretchy that it didn’t matter at all for me, which was awesome.
Everyday Bra. During pregnancy, I really got away from wearing underwire bras. After breastfeeding for 13 months, my breasts changed significantly. This bra was a complete surprise to me. I never expected that a non-adjustable bra (again, because of my weirdly short torso!) would become my go-to everyday bra. Nor did I expect to love a front-closure as much as I do. Yet here we are. This is hands down the bra I reach for the most the past 6 months.
The Comfiest Strapless Bra. Thats a big claim right there. HUGE. Because comfort and strapless bra usually don’t go in the same sentence. But, this bra deserves that title. When I wear it, I don’t even notice that it’s strapless. It’s comfortable, but never slips down. It stays in place all day long. It has these grippies that help it from slipping. Also it’s super lightweight, which is so awesome since we tend to wear strapless bras most often in the hot summer months.
Backless Bra. I’ve tried more than my share of backless bra options and I keep coming back to this one. I don’t like pasties because they do nothing to help with my (lack of) shape. These are actual cups that help provide a little shape and create a little cleavage for smaller busts like mine.
Push-up Bra. I’m very particular about push-up bras. They need to be comfortable AND they need to not create that weird cup gap that you can see through most shirts. That’s a tall order, because it’s been difficult through the years for me to find the perfect push-up. This bra checks both boxes and is the reason I fell in love with Soma, well that and their INSANELY comfortable PJs.
only undies I wear
Last Fall, I set out to try all of the undies people claimed to be the best. Here is a list of the pairs I tried:
CK signature cotton bikini
VS cotton bikini
wirarpa Women’s High Waisted Cotton Underwear
Amazon Essentials Women’s 4-Pack Lace Stretch Hipster Panty
Lululemon Namastay Put Hipster
Auden (Target) Briefs with Mesh Waistband
Spanx Undie-tectable® Lace Hi-Hipster Panty
Thirdlove comfort stretch bikini
Auden (Target) seamless hipster
VS stretch cotton hiphuggers (lace trim)
Commando CLASSIC SOLID TINY THONG
DKNY Modern Lace Sheer Hipster DK5014
Aerie Boy Brief
Only one of these were worth wearing again… The Amazon Essentials! I Ended up ordering SEVEN sets of them and threw out pretty much the rest of my underwear drawer. I did keep some randoms undies, but my drawer is composed of primarily this one type now. And I see no end in sight. They don’t ride up or give wedgies. They’re made from a soft, stretchy lace. They wear great during that time of the month. They’re honestly amazing.
