Transitioning into summer intimates is exciting! Stores are full of light and airy bras, panty colors to keep you comfortable and cute during the sweltering summer days.  When it comes to choosing the right summer intimates, it’s important to make a different choice from your winter lingerie.  Here are a few tips to keep in mind when shopping for summer intimates.

CHOOSE LIGHTER COLORS

CALVIN KLEIN LIGHTLY LINED NUDE STRAPLESS BRA. MACY’S $42

Lighter shades in the summer not only apply when it comes to your clothing but it applies for your intimates as well. This is especially important when wearing your summer whites.  Let’s settle the debate once and for all about what color intimates to wear under white clothes. Is it white or black? The answer is neither.  You should wear intimates that match your skin color as close as possible to avoid sharing your underwear preferences with the world.

COTTON IS YOUR BEST FRIEND

LANE BRYANT CACIQUE INTIMATES COTTON STRING BIKINI PANTY $9.50

There isn’t a better substitute for cotton when it comes to summer intimates.  Cotton is moisture-absorbing and great for summer clothing and even better when it comes to intimates because it helps to keep you dry, hygienic and rash-free during warmer temperatures. Avoid silks and synthetic fabrics!

KEEP IT SIMPLE

DKNY SEAMLESS LITWEAR RIB BRALETTE. BELK $33

One of the things we love to do is find the panty and bra set with the nicest lace, the prettiest satin and sexiest embellishments, but in the summer keep it simple. During the summer it’s about practicality.  Keep your intimates as basic as possible. The less friction and rub from synthetic fabrics and embellishments is better for your skin and comfort!

LESS IS MORE!

VICTORIA’S SECRET VERY SEXY BRAZILLIAN PANTY $19.50

Now that bikinis are a summer staple, so should your panties. That’s right, less is more when it comes to your picks for panties. Choose styles that involve less fabric like thongs. However, if you feel that you need a little more coverage purchase panties that have a boy cut brief or a cheeky bottom cut.

CUT THE WIRE

AERIE REAL SUNNIE WIRELESS LIGHTLY LINED BRA $44.95

Underwire is our friend, but during the summer it’s not. While support is important when it comes to your bra, underwire can impede on comfort. Look for soft padded bras and bras that offer side support or ones that are a bit sung to offer additional support.
