7 timeless basics for your lingerie drawer

Jeans that fit perfectly, a little black dress that always makes you look stylish and simple black court shoes that complete any outfit. Basics that every woman has in her wardrobe. But what are the must-haves for your lingerie drawer? We’ve put together a handy checklist.

1.    Ultimate T-shirt bra

Its smooth seamless cups ensure that a T-shirt bra goes under any outfit, from a light top to a sexy cocktail dress. A bra without much embellishment, yet anything but boring. Like Madison's foam bra with checks in sparkling Florida or Scarlet, Billy Jean's bras with romantic denim look or Precieuse's foam bra in two irresistible colours.

2.    Clever styles

A La Folie's figure-shaping briefs do wonders for your waist and with a bodyshaper like Perle's you leave nothing to chance when it comes to bottom, waist and tummy. In these clever styles, you are ready for anything. And don’t forget the bra with detachable shoulder straps, like Perle's or Satin's. They are just perfect under an elegant bustier dress or top with sexy low neck.

3.    Little black bra

The popularity of black lace in lingerie never seems to wane. A black lace bra is lingerie’s LBD: ideal for a big meeting during the day and a night at the restaurant. Or when you want to look radiant and self-assured at an impromptu party. And if that bra provides perfect lift and support for your breasts, like the sexy Couture or A La Folie balconnet, all the better.

4.    Seize the day

A bra for special occasions or simply when you feel like it. The seize-the-day bra fits perfectly, suits you wonderfully and looks anything but humdrum. Like Aurora's bras with gorgeous floral patterns and fluorescent colours, Stella's ornate embroidery and fantastic colours, Divine's irresistible lace look or Frou Frou's seductive draping.

5.    Me-time

Time for yourself is all about relaxing in style. Snug in an armchair with an engrossing book or watching TV in a delightfully cosy outfit. Wear shiny satin in Marie Antoinette style, like Stella offers, or opt for Precieuse's comfy styles in a hip colour.

6.    Something sexy

When you wear sexy knickers you get an instant confidence boost. Clearly, then, they are a must in your lingerie drawer. The only problem is choosing: sensual with transparent lace on the buttocks, like Trésor's Italian briefs, a G-string in a smooth fabric like Sweety offers or Divine's elegant polka dot tulle? Eeny, meeny, miny, mo… They are all equally irresistible to us.

7.    Marilyn moment

A summer dress lifted by the wind is an iconic image, provided you have the right knickers on. Playful, sensual but revealing. Like Luna's flirtatious hotpants, Billie Jean's briefs with that cute strip of lace or Oh La La's seductive colours.
