The Lingerie Rules, Summer Edition
Aug 17, 2017
Just because it’s not Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean we can’t talk about lingerie (see January’s post, here). Pretty underthings are a good buy any time of year. Here are the best lingerie and sleepwear picks for the end-of-summer.
Sleep Attire. Our house is so hot in the summer. Even with A/C, the style of the home makes the upstairs nearly impossible to cool. So what do you sleep in to avoid the heat?
My first choice would be a cute sleep set. My current favorite is this $20 Target set with pom-pom trim. I also like the floral print on this Kohl’s set. The Kohl’s set is also available in plus-size. If you have a bit of money to spend, try the sweet bows on this Sadie Sleep Set.
I also like a chemise made out of soft jersey. Unlike silk chemises, they breathe. These white Eberjey number has cap sleeves. This PJ salvage slip has a hint of lace, while this Naked Jersey chemise is plain (but so comfortable). Plus-size? Try this one from Honeydew Intimates.
If none of this is to your liking, you can always sleep in the nude.
Lingerie. One of the reasons I wrote this post is that the lingerie colors are so much better in the summer. In the fall/winter, almost everything is black. Around Valentine’s, they release a few colors, but the selection is better in the warmer months.
This Soma Intimates bralette is so unique, and I love the adobe rose and slate blue colors. This Else iris-purple bra is pretty, on sale, and something you could wear comfortably. This pink satin set from Anthro is also a really great look.
Also, if you are looking for just black, try it in a summery floral embroidery–this Stella McCartney set is one you cannot miss.
