Today we’re talking about what goes UNDER your clothes. And ladies, let me tell you, I’ve done my homework in this category and truly believe I have this figured out for you. Finally. It took me years of VPL’s, wedgies and overall discomfort before I found exactly the right regimen of underwear for every situation in my life and I’m happy to share the goods during the Nordstrom Sale because they are all marked down!
So if you’ve been with me here for a while, you know that I am anti thong underwear. I only wear them when they are an absolute MUST and when that happens, there is only one kind I wear which we will get to in a minute! Let’s break it down:
For EVERYDAY: I can’t remember when I discovered these gems. They are ONE SIZE FITS ALL, seamless and overall incredible. Having tried a bevy of “seamless” underwear which really showed a lot of “seams”, I was skeptical to invest in these. But thank goodness I did because they really stand up to their claim of being seamless. As in they completely disappear under your clothes. Even yoga pants! Oh joyous day. Knowing how much I detest thongs, can you imagine my excitement? They are the best and I wear them everyday.
For NIGHT/COMFY DAYS: These are just the best comfy, cotton underwear. I wear them at night to bed and on days where I’m lounging around the house!
For ANYTHING CLINGY/WHITE SKIRTS AND PANTS: This (for me) is where the thongs come in. I have a few pairs of pants that are light weight and slightly clingy. I have also noticed with white dresses and pants, even nude colored underwear can show a shadow under the white. So thongs are the key here and these are hands down the best. Even Oprah has talked about her love of them! They are the most comfortable of the uncomfortable category, haha!
Favorite Pajamas: When I was pregnant, I discovered these nightgowns and fell in love with them. I can’t wear pants or shorts to bed because I feel like they twist and turn around my legs at night which bugs the heck out of me. Am I the only one that feels this way?
The Best Bra: Hands down, the best. Perfect under t-shirts, silk tops, v-necks…just about anything. It provides optimal support and a good amount of coverage as well. There are a few other bra’s I’d like to share with you as well but I’m not going to get into detail on this post considering I’ve either been pregnant or nursing for the last 5 years so things have been shall we say…fluctuating. But this bra was my favorite for years prior to pregnancy and nursing!
Shapewear Must Have: Every gal needs a pair of Spanx. The creator of Spanx is a self made billionaire for a reason. Trust me. When I worked at Neiman Marcus, Spanx had just hit the market. Every girl wore them regardless of if they were a size 0 or 10. We all agreed that they just help you feel more pulled together and SMOOTH under dresses- especially ones that are more fitted.
ROBES: This plush robe is LIFE! You need one to cozy up in. My Mom has gotten me two as gifts and I just love them for the cooler months in San Diego. Most of time though, I throw on this light weight robe! I brought it in my hospital bag when I had Coco and it has stayed in great shape for 4 years now. She loves snuggling up against it because she did so much as a baby- it melts my heart when she asks if she can snuggle when I’m wearing my “robe-ie”.
Do you have any favorite undergarments? I’d love to know what they are! As always, thank you so much for following along! xo
