While it looks like everyone has time on their hands, before you know it the doors will open up again and poof there goes the time you had to do a little self improvement of your intimates. You know you have old favorite underwear, bras, nighties. Sure they are comfortable and they have seen you through some tough times or boyfriends; however, now these favorites are thread bare, have pics and runs, plus maybe a torn hole or two.
And you remember your mama always told you to have clean underwear. Plus do you want to be caught in those when an unexpected opportunity presents it’s self? Of course not! Time to refresh those worn items.
OK, let’s get started. Those old ragged panties need to go. Now some soft cotton briefs or boyshorts will fill their place. On the plus side they are not only a practical choice but also sexy if you get caught with your pants down.
Next, that bralette you love so much but the elastic is gone and that once pretty lace is now all ragged. There are new styles of bralettes, enough to fill several lingerie drawers. There are a few staples which every woman should have for lounging around. The “Longline Lace Bralette” is one. These feature a longer lacy panel under the breasts to give you an elegant sexy look with a bit more coverage.
If you have larger breasts and feel you need more support then a underwire lace cami bralette will fit the bill.
Of course you can always opt for a bra and panty set. The fashion trend now days is for a strappy bralette top and a matching strappy thong panty. The nice thing about these sets is you will always feel stylish if you are called out unexpectedly with little time to change. Your mama will be proud.
For now staying in and binge watching your favorite show is cliché. Nothing better than plopping down on the couch wearing one of your well worn babydoll or camisoles. Problem is there is a ragged piece of lace scratching you or a little hole in just the wrong place letting a nip get caught in it, ugh. Time to donate those to the trash bin and get a new favorite.
Camisoles pop to the top of the list here. There are so many styles to choose from. Many with built in shelf bras if you need that feeling of support. Some short or see through, but hey, you are lounging on your couch, so what.
On the other hand maybe a nice babydoll is more your personal style. The classic styling of babydolls make this garment a clear go to favorite. Many come with matching panties and are long enough to curl up into and you are still covered when your room-mate or her boy friend pop into the living room. (You can substitute kids, mom, husband, in the above sentence if you like.)
The nice thing is if you redo your lingerie drawer now you will be ready for date night and not have to worry your underwear will embarrass you.
As always your comments and suggestions are more than welcome.
