With lockdown in place, many of us have all of a sudden found ourselves with a lot of free time. Keeping yourself occupied at this time can be tough, but we’ve discovered a new found love for sort-outs. Oddly enough, sorting through cupboards, drawers, spare rooms and sheds (even under our beds) are proving to give a great feeling of accomplishment in lockdown. After all, a tidy room means a tidy mind!
After tackling our underwear drawers, we realised there were lots of bras and briefs (even socks!) we’d been holding onto for perhaps a little too long. We recommend having an underwear drawer sort-out the next time you find yourself a little bored. The satisfaction of a tidy drawer is a great feeling, and it helps you see which essentials your collection might be missing!
Here’s a few of our top underwear drawer sort-our tips:
1.Stop folding your bras!
Many people store their bras by folding them in half. This can actually misshape the bra over time, compromising the fit and the way it’s meant to mould over your shape. It’s important to give them space in your lingerie drawer – lay them to rest stood flat against each other to retain shape.
2.Know when it’s time to let go
We all have that favourite bra that’s had our back for about 6 years – it may have gone bobbly and we have to twist its straps back into place every time we wash it, but it’s in one piece, right? Wrong. It’s time to move on. Old bras may look like they’re in one piece on the outside, but on the inside they’re exhausted and worn out. We’d say if your bra is over a year old then it’s time for a refresh, as after that time frame, their support breaks down, elastic loosens and the back gives way.
3.Make sure your essentials are in check
There are so many stunning lingerie sets in our collections that are sure to grab your eye. Make sure you have all your solution pieces before you get wandering eyes! We all need reliable T-Shirt, plunge, strapless, balconette and full cup staple pieces in versatile shades in our underwear drawer. It’s important that your lingerie collection can handle whatever outfit you want to wear!
