I'm Sort of an Underwear Snob—These Brands Pass My Test

I’ve always had a thing for underwear. I love collecting pretty lingerie pieces and have tried so many different brands to find the perfect everyday pair of underwear. Something about it just feels so girly and fun. When looking for a pair of underwear to wear every day, I’m the type of person who gravitates toward something seamless and body-hugging. The most important thing is to hide panty lines and find a fabric that feels comfortable and doesn’t irritate my skin.

When shopping for lingerie I’m a huge satin and lace fan (anything with dainty details or that looks like it would be in the closet of a princess, I’m into). Color-wise, while black is always a good choice, I recommend sprinkling in some color but, a great skin-tone pair of panties is also a must. Of all of the underwear brands that I’ve tried, check all of my boxes. 

Keep scrolling to see which underwear brands are in my top five.

Before trying this brand for myself, I had heard rave reviews from friends and co-workers alike. These are great if you like to wear lace undies on a more regular basis since they’re super comfortable. Trust me—once you try these out, you’ll be hooked.

What I love about Intimissi is that it’s a great one-stop shop for all your undergarment needs. The brand has great strapless bras, everyday bras, lingerie sets, you name it. The underwear is also soft and comfortable. I’m honestly obsessed.

This brand is every cool NYC girl’s favorite lingerie brand. Fleur Du Mal’s collection of bras, panties, slip dresses, and lingerie pieces are so beautifully designed and truly feel like a luxury when you try them on. I can’t get enough.

Agent Provocateur is basically what you see under the definition of luxury lingerie. This underwear brand has been a celebrity favorite for years now and has some of the prettiest pieces of lingerie on the market. It offers corsets, stockings, suspenders, and more. All of your lingerie needs will be met when you go with Agent Provocateur.

From my first time trying Skims, I knew I was going to be joining this brand’s cult following. I could have an entire underwear collection full of Skims if it was up to me. The Fits Everybody collection is the ultimate everyday pair of panties and bralettes that are so comfortable you won’t want to take them off. I haven’t tried out its shapewear yet, but it’s on my list.
