Wardrobe Refresh: Understated and Sexy Lingerie For Everyday

True & Co, my fav online source for all things gorgeous and lacy and cozy and loungy,  have made some changes in the last couple of years.  Their quiz has been updated (and works better now, in my opinion – they basically addressed all of the concerns I had originally highlighted here), and, even more exciting, have branched out into creating their own line of lingerie.  And?  It. Is. Fabulous.

If your underwear drawer needs an update (and mine really does), you won’t go wrong with…

Start With The Basics

1.  True&Co Contour+ in Scallop Shell (goes up to 38E)+ True&Co Hidden Hipster Panty in Ash

2. Kensie Riley Bra + True&Co Hidden Hipster Panty in Black

3.  True&Co Convertible Wirefree in Ash + True&Co Hidden Hipster Panty in Plum Kitten

 

Include:  A Flattering Sports Bra

4. Natori Power Yogi Bra (love that this sports bra keeps ‘the girls’ nicely separated…but they also have this one which I used while nursing.)

 

Loungewear, Of Course

5. True&Co Racerback Tank in scallop shell + True&Co Easyfit Short in plum kitten (These are my new favorite PJs.  Mike loves them, too.  Thankfully, they also come as a set:  mint+plum kitten or scallop shell)

6. Eberjay Baxter Cami in cloud + Nikibiki Two Tone Leggings in rock

 

Something For Your Glamorous Self

7. Eberjay Colette Bra (so perfect under racerbacks, tees, or sexy sweaters) + True&Co Best Lace Thong Ever (comes in a 3 pack for the price of one Hanky Panky…and they’re just as good.  Promise.)

8.  Josie Bardot Bustier + Josie Bardot Panty

 

Shapewear, Shhhhh

9.  Berlie Control Slip  – I KNOW.  Can you believe it’s shapewear??? Take that, Spanx!

 

And lastly, pick a little something fun.

1. Triumph Perfectly Soft in orange + True&Co Faster Than Light Panty in nude and poppy (this panty is surprisingly sexy – check out the back!)

2. True&Co We Were Voodoo Bustier in charcoal and mint True&Co Faster Than Light Panty in charcoal and mint (I have this set – it’s understated sexiness, like something a cool French girl would wear.  You can see it here.)

3. Freya Deco Bra in cobalt (this stunner goes up to 38DD) + True&Co Faster Than Light Panty in seaport

4.  Calvin Klein Strapless bra in edison blue +  True&Co Best Lace Hipster Ever in ash

5. Montelle Coquette in emeraldTrue&Co Exotic Plume Panty  (love the over-the-top romantic vibe)

6. Calvin Klein Icon in delilah +  Montelle Romance Panty  (soft lilac and navy is my new fav combo)

 

I mean seriously.  Well played, True & Co.  WELL PLAYED.

xo,

ps.  A huge thank you to True&Co for sponsoring this post!  As always, all thoughts, opinions, product choices and penchant for miss-matched underwear is my own.

    Beautiful things! Right now I’m 7 months pregnant and my girls have gotten HUGE, so I’m holding out as long as I can to get nursing bras in case these chi chis keep growing, but I can’t wait to get some new underthings! Everyone’s told me that when you’re shlumping around on maternity leave, that some pretty lounge pieces can really make you feel better.

    Perfect! I was hoping you would post another one of these. I am finishing up nursing kiddo #2 and I am ready to burn burn burn and buy buy buy. I just placed my order.

    Hi Shanna, I was fit recently at Nordstrom and I too am a 30D. When I plugged that in to the True & Co. quiz it just told me sorry, we don’t have anything your size. That was only 2 or 3 weeks ago???

    I hate to offer a bit of negativity here, but hopefully it’s constructive…. Please, not so many sponsored posts. I am gradually losing interest with the, ” thoughts and opinions” that are your own when the posts are sponsored. Seems they are sponsored most of the time, now.
