I tossed half my lingerie drawer: Here’s why!

You might remember a post from a while back where I talked about tossing half my closet. I know, it sounds dramatic (!!), but I really did go through everything, and it felt really good! But, when it came to the lingerie drawer, let’s just say I wasn’t as decisive. All of a sudden, I noticed the pj drawer was over flowing — something even got stuck behind the drawer and it was a big ordeal to get it out 😂 My bra and pantie drawer was messy and overflowing too. So, I actually tossed half my lingerie drawer. Yep, I finally set aside all the stretched-out bras and ratty looking panties and pj’s I’d been wearing for years. Then, I set out to find high quality, well-designed replacements, and I’m sharing them with you below.

Today’s post is about the best-selling bras and panties you’ll love, tried-and-true shape wear, the one item that’s flying off shelves everywhere, and of course, the coziest pj’s perfect for lounging at home. I’ve tested pretty much everything in this post, so this is all my own opinion and of course a little ‘blog research’ from my trusted sources. I hope you find something you love for yourself and your loved ones!

Best-selling bras

I’ve tested A LOT of bras over the past two years thanks to an amazing partnership with Wacoal, and there are several I wear over and over again, including the stylist favorite Red Carpet Strapless style. I’m also including the best-selling bra at Nordstrom, which is the Natori Bliss bra, followed by Natori Feathers. The Feathers bra has a plunge which makes it a little sexier and is perfect for low-cut tops. For total comfort, the True & Co is another top seller at Nordstrom, and I agree, it’s super comfy!

Comfy bra options

Best-selling panties

For everyday panties to wear under jeans, I prefer wearing a thong style. The Hanky Panky Original Rise is hands down the number one seller, followed by the Natori Bliss thong. I’ve worn both and I’d say they’re pretty equal, but Natori Bliss is the one I’ve purchased for over two years. For comfortable and practical panties, the Chantelle Soft Stretch one size fits all is a favorite, and in the summer, these are my go-to’s under dresses. Another comfy option is this Natori cotton style and this Wacoal one.

More coverage 🙂



Best-selling shapewear

Someone asked me recently if I wear Spanx … um yes, they’re a can’t-live-without lingerie staple in my opinion! This mid-thigh short in either the regular or high rise is the one to try. Perfect under most dresses, and any time you need a little extra smoothing. Add some great shapewear to your lingerie drawer and you’ll always look and feel smooth under all your beautiful clothes 😊



The item that’s flying off the shelves …

Barefoot dreams everything — these blankets, these robes and this cardigan – all amazing and so cozy!

Right now, hands down, Barefoot Dreams is what everyone is buying; everything from this soft cardigan to this fluffy robe to blankets and throws. These make the perfect gifts and they’re super cozy, which is perfect for winter!




The best pj’s around!

I’ve tried A LOT of pj’s recently, and there are several that stand out. For starters, as I’m writing this blog from my bed with two kitties snuggled in, I happen to be wearing The All-American Pj’s by HoneyDew. I’ve talked about these over and over again because I love them so much! They’re soft, reasonably priced and the perfect weight most of the year. Another one that I only recently tried, and I think may be the last one to the party on this one, is the Nordstrom Moonlight collection. Whether you like a shorts set, or long or short sleeves, this collection has you covered. They’re so soft, and my personal new favorite!
