I thought it was about time I did an edit of my favourite underwear pieces. Just like I love swimwear, I love lingerie. It’s a joy to wear and over the years I’ve developed quite a collection of everyday pieces and ‘special occasion’ sets. I love a classic black pant as much as a lace bra, so I’ve listed my favourites below. For me, putting on my underwear each morning reminds me to spend a little moment with my body, and with good cuts I’m more easily able to appreciate my shape – something I think is healthy to do at least once a day – even if it’s just a glance in the mirror. It’s as much for me as for anyone else. It doesn’t mean it has to be a fancy lingerie set everyday, just something I feel confident in.
Overall, the brands I reach for for comfort are Chantelle (with amazing one-size-fits-all seamless underwear – my favourite is the high waisted thong), for beautiful underwire bras that can be worn daily I love Fleur of England, and for the ultimate fun lace, mesh and satin it’s Dora Larsen. If you’re going for super cosy bamboo – then Arq and Hara are both incredible brands with sustainability at their forefront.
And since we’re all struggling with the loungewear-that-looks-chic at the moment, I also added in some of my favourite pieces to WFH in. Comfortable for the sofa but also chic enough for a video call.

the kind of bra you can wear and forget you’re wearing it. perfect for under t-shirts
comfortable but still chic
this is not to say everyday underwear shouldn’t be fun, but you get my drift… these are all part of sets, even if just one product shows in the image below.
from body suits to chemises, these can be worn either as tops, underneath clothing or even as nighties
