Investing in some fun, sexy lingerie is a necessity for every woman. Why shouldn’t your underwear look as good as your outerwear?

Having said that, your first mission is to start with the basics. You know, a few bras in black, nude and white. Seamless panties and one or two thongs (I’m no fan of these, but it’s essential).

Go with the mood of the moment, and give your underwear drawer a chic update. Besides, do I need to remind you that Valentine’s Day is coming our way (preparation is everything, right?).

Here’s my guide to the best lingerie to wear now. Plus, I have a great tip from a lingerie-loving expert (from Femina) on how to find a bra that fits.

Look better in your bra

A lot of women have “bra issues.” Apparently one of the biggest is, believe it or not, wearing the wrong bra size. So, I turned straight to the experts of Femina Lingerie, and here’s what they had to say.

“Choose straps with elasticity, that will give you the best support. Always make sure that the whole cup lies flat against your breast, with no excess fabric.”

(Left to right) Zabajan at Dizengoff Center: Undies and bra set NIS180, Intima: NIS219.90, Femina: Bras NIS249, undies NIS99, Hanky Panky at Afrodita: Undies NIS169, bras NIS259, H&O: NIS119.9

My tip? Go to a professional fitter. Almost every store has one.

Psst… keep in mind! A bra that fits well won’t just feel great, it will also make your clothes look better.
