I live and breathe red carpet season. For me, it’s not so much a season, as it’s my job year-round to dress my A-list clients for award shows. From initial fittings to day-off dressing, there are a handful of items I always have with me in case of a wardrobe emergency. Last month, I shared the under-£20 items I have in my styling kit; today I’m adding to the list and sharing the undergarments I recommend and provide for my clients.

I never attend a fitting or event without a selection of nude seamless thongs. Of course, Commando is an industry favourite over in the States, but I also love Soma lingerie. The brand makes some of the best seamless thongs in luxuriously soft fabrics. The design lends a no-show look and works for nearly every dress style you can imagine. I’d go as far to say that the style is a must-have for everyone’s undergarments drawer. Shop my picks for the best seamless thongs below.
