4 Must-Haves for Perfect Undies #bringcomfyback

Date Mon, August 10 2015

This sponsored post is brought to you from U by Kotex, a company that’s encouraged me to think about finding the right undies. So I got to thinking about what it is I keep in mind when shopping, and I thought I’d share that all with you.

What follows is a list of criteria I consider when buying the perfect panties for me!

1. They’re Cute and/or Sexy

If someone else sees them, they’ll like them. Bonus points if they match my bra. I have a navy blue bra from VS with several pairs of undies in the same color. For undies of other color, I have a black bra that I pair with. I also have an adorable set of Harley Queen undies + bra from Hot Topic that I only ever wear together.

I don’t like a lot of patterns, but the details need to express my desire to feel pretty, I suppose. Most of my undies have some lace details, ribbons or bows or something otherwise feminine. I love lace and mesh backs with cotton fronts!

2. They’re Comfortable

No riding up, slipping down, twisting or wedgies, okay? Stay where I put you whether I’m sitting down to work, walking 5 miles, drinking with friends or helping someone move. That’s must.

So, sometimes this means something silky and smooth isn’t perfect because it slides out of place more often than not. Bummer!

3. They’re Flattering

The perfect pair of undies for my body might not be the perfect pair for your body, despite what the ads would have us believe. I often like hipsters and stay away from anything with string sides that will cut into my hips and sides in an unflattering way.  Bulges aren’t sexy, am I right?

I don’t necessarily need full coverage, but everything needs to cut off at the right place because I’m short and curvy. I think you know where I’m going with this.

Plus, it should look good under clothes, especially if they’re form fitting. There’s nothing worse than realizing the pair of undies I grabbed from the drawer doesn’t fit or sit right with the shorts, jeans, dress or skirt I wanted to wear that day! Oops.

4. They’re Durable

Most of us don’t hand-wash our undies, even if we’re supposed to, you know? So something I can toss in the washer is ideal. I do have and use a lingerie bag, but sometimes super delicate panties won’t even survive that. So while I like lace, I look for higher quality stuff that will last a while after being washed in the machine.

Right now, my two favorite pairs of undies are both from VS. One’s a higher hiphugger that actually has a lace panel over the cheeks with a cotton waistband like this one. It sits a bit higher, but has this retro feel that I really love, especially when I seem to be gravitating toward that sort of fashion in general!

The other pair is an all-over lace style called the Itsy that’s a cross between a cheeky panty and a thong. Mine is in allover lace and fits damned near perfectly. Currently, it’s not available in the lace, and I’m not sure I’d like the other materials as much. See, finding the perfect undies is harder than some people might realize!

    My very favorite pair of undies is from VS too. I never thought of buying several pairs in one color to match one bra – brilliant! I love that U by Kotex keeps panties pretty. :)

    I totally do it all the time but it’s easy when they’re all from the same company!

    Yeah. I’m definitely not hand washing my undies either, so the perfect ones need to tolerate machine washing.

    Right? Who has time for that?

    The older I am getting, comfort becomes more important. But cute is second for sure! :)
