Have you found the right bra and panties?

How to navigate the lingerie department on your own!

Finding the right bras and panties can be tricky. Walking into any lingerie department can be intimidating — there are literally bras and panties everywhere! And if you’re like me, it’s easy to gravitate towards our tried and true favorites. This is fine, but aren’t there some better options out there? Is there such thing as a comfy bra? And what about the perfect panties – do they even exist? 

So what are the ideal options? I’ve tried many of these, and between fitting room experiences and personal favorites, along with my trusted sources (thank you friends in the lingerie department), I’ve found some pretty great options! Keep reading to see which undergarments will work under all your outfits!


Natori bras

The top two sellers in the Nordstrom Lingerie Department are the Natori Pure Luxe and Natori Feathers (I wrote about them here and here). I have personally tried them and I love them both!!  The Pure Luxe style is SO comfy, and is perfect to wear with all your favorite tees. The Feathers style has a plunging neckline, so it’s a little sexy, perfect for lower cut blouses. (It also has 2,957 reviews – that’s a lot!). This Natori Flora bra is newer and everyone is starting to love it.

Strapless bras

These are always a must for halter style or strapless dresses, as well as jumpsuits. They can be tricky to find though – this one by Wacoal is a favorite. Try this style by Natori, or this one by Lively. If you need a convertible style (one that has straps that can criscross), try this one.  I own it and love it. These all get great reviews!

Trusted Thong

In my mind, there are only two thongs to consider: those by Hanky Panky, or my newest favorite, Bliss by Natori. Both one size, both super comfy, I wrote about them here. You should own AT LEAST one thong. You never know!

Granny Panties

I’m sure Chantelle won’t appreciate me calling them this, but I’m going to anyway, because they aren’t that attractive but they sure are comfy! And believe it or not, they are one size.  The Chantelle soft stretch panties come in several versions (and colors). Our favorites are below. My trusted sources tell me that all the women in the lingerie department love this panty and they fit everyone well. Try them!


Commando Brand

These panties quickly air dry, making them perfect for vacation. They are seamless and therefore don’t show AT ALL!! We love the boy short, the thong and the panty


For a little tummy control

I absolutely love these panties by Spanx. They have a lace back with a light control in the front. The best part? They’re actually pretty!! I wear these under all my dresses if there’s any chance of seeing an unsightly roll!



We all wear it!
