The Oscars of Underwear
The Undie Awards were announced this week. (Yes, there really is such a thing!). Over 40,000 women and men voted for their favorites—from bras to boxers...and categories you may not have even considered, like man thongs. Check out whether one of your go-to styles made the list, or amp up your underwear drawer and try one of the award winners at 15 percent off.
All of this talk about unmentionables, however, got us thinking about how important it is to find a strapless bra that doesn't slip (or give you back cleavage), panties that don't bunch and a support system you can count on no matter what your cup size.
Next: Our pros reveal a few of their top picks...
O's creative director, Adam Glassman, knows how to solve any dilemma when it comes to your delicates—even if your breasts are different sizes. His solution: Fruit of the Loom's Pick Your Perfect Pair bra. Cups are sold individually so both your left and right can find the right fit. And at $5 per cup, this customized support system is a steal!
Or if you've got curves—but want to keep that cleavage under wraps at the office—he's got a fix for you. Try the 9to5 bra by Wink Intimates, which keeps everything lifted and in place, but provides the coverage of a camisole, in one step. Adam calls this one a "win-win!"
Style expert Stacy London gave us her take on what to wear to make your tush look firmer (and panty line free).
"Bra whisperer" Susan Nethero of Intimacy Boutique shares the must-haves that should be in every woman's lingerie drawer.
And Oprah.com editorial assistant Natalie Tebbi recently discovered the Lilyette strapless bra by Maidenform. She road tested this and found that not only did it stay in place and not end up around her bellybutton by lunchtime but it also doesn't look like a shelf either. "I could perform an entire Olympic gymnastics routine—or in my case, more likely a butchered somersault—and this thing would not budge," she says. Bonus: It comes with adjustable straps.
What's your favorite? Have a go-to bra you couldn't get through the day without? Share your find with us!
