No Lingerie Collection Is Complete Without These 7 Staples

A vast majority of lingerie trends come and go, but knickers are for life, which is ironic, seeing as they’re the underwear style that is constantly overlooked.

Bras command most of the attention, likely because they can be styled in a way that makes them integral to your outfit—think a flash of lace underneath an unbuttoned blouse, or a jewel-tone satin strap peeking out from underneath a chunky cardigan. However, as knickers are, for the most part, going to be covered up (sheer and naked dresses aside), they’re all too often forgotten about. It’s a shame, seeing as there are so many beautiful briefs to be had out there.

Now, though, brands like Hanky Panky and Love Stories Intimates are putting knickers back in the spotlight, making shopping for your smalls a more stylish endeavour than ever before. But do you know your Brazilian from your bikini? Your French from your short? Keep scrolling to see and shop the types of knickers every woman should have in her lingerie drawer

Now that you’ve got your knickers sorted, see how many other pieces you need to create the perfect lingerie capsule wardrobe.
