The perfect lingerie

Bras and briefs that work for you

Lingerie problems solved

Underwear woes? We’ve got you covered with seven surefire fixes:

Falling straps

No more tugging straps up — choose a seamless, slightly padded bra with a clip across the back that keeps straps in place.
Try: Gap, $45, sizes 32A to 36D

Tight-fitting top

No seams and no stitches guarantee a smooth shape without sacrificing underwire support.
Try: Playtex, $38, sizes 34B to 36D

Strappy or strapless top

Double-lined cups and underwire give support while rubber grippers prevent sliding or shifting.
Try: Gap, $50, sizes 32A to 36D

Sheer fabric top

A nude-toned bodysuit made of comfortable microfibre shapes and fits your form.
Try: Elita, $34, sizes S to XL

Low waisted

A hipster thong sits low so you can bend over and sit comfortably without revealing your undies.
Try: Hanna, $12, sizes S to XL

Visible panty lines

A barely-there thong is surprisingly comfortable when it’s in a soft stretchy fabric.
Try: Gap, $13, sizes XS to XL


Full-cut yoga briefs that cup your cheeks without riding up solve those obvious lines.
Try: Lulemon, $8, sizes 1 (S-M) and 2 (M-L)
