What to Wear and Not Wear When Buying Lingerie

Lingerie can be beautiful but can also make you feel downright scared. It can take the world of undergarments into a new realm for some. Garter belts? Teddies? Balconettes? Chemises? There is more to lingerie than just bras and underwear. We’re used to spending more time at home, so there’s no better time than the present to learn lingerie and shop while you’re at that.

A representative of Journelle was kind enough to inform us about the best and worst ways to tackle these sometimes intimidating underpinnings. These tips will help you, whether it’s your first or second time wearing lingerie.

Do it: Have an expert fit you.

“My first piece of advice is to be properly fitted for your bra size. Don’t be too focused on your bra size. Bra fitting and lingerie are all about finding the right size and styles that fit you well. As the majority of your support comes from the band, it’s crucial to make sure there is no gaping at your cup.

“Don’t worry about your measurements. You can wear what feels most comfortable for you. It will look great on you, I promise.

Do it: Make your Lingerie Wardrobe from the Ground Up.

Invest in great-fitting, stylish sets to build your wardrobe if you are a newbie to lingerie. This includes a T-shirt bra and a plunge bra. These are your lingerie workhorses, so ensure you take good care of them.

“If you are a lingerie fanatic, go for the WOW factor. You don’t want to miss out on an extravagant set with suspenders, a sleek bodysuit, or revealing bottoms you love. You don’t need to spend a lot, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be extravagant. It can also be something unexpected and not practical. It will delight you long after it’s unwrapped.

Don’t rush to buy the 3-piece garter set. Take your time and get to know yourself and your comfort level. Next, go all-in!

Do: Search for high-quality fabrics.

There are many things you should look for when shopping for lingerie. The technical aspect of the garment is important. It must fit properly, be high-quality, and have solid construction. But it is not enough. This is where silks and laces, unique embellishments, design and construction all play.

You’ll feel amazing every time you wear it.” It will make you feel amazing every time you put it on.

Do you love the set that you’re wearing?

“Lingerie should be the first thing you wear in the morning. You need to love it.” You must love it. This is not only about fit and style but also how you feel attached to certain pieces. This starts with the love for what you wear. You will be taller if you choose the right lingerie set you love.

Remember that lingerie is your choice. Wear only styles that make you feel amazing.

Do: Always Hand-Wash Your Lingerie

“Handwashing your lingerie can be the best thing you can do for it. Although it sounds tedious, it is very easy. Add a cupful of gentle lingerie wash to the sink basin. I like the Linden Lingerie Wash ($18), which we made with The Laundress. These girls are skilled at caring for delicates. After rinsing, gently squeeze the water out and then lay your pieces flat to dry.

Do not dry your lingerie in the dryer.
