Evening underwear

3 of 4
When considering underthings for nighttime, the challenge is making sure that your choices stay invisible. "You don't want to plan an evening in a killer dress only to discover at the last minute that you have nothing to wear under it," says Nordstrom's Sandra Saffle. Be prepared with a convertible bra that adapts to all necklines, including strapless, plus a few lightweight shapewear pieces to address any excess.
