I have to confess to being a little safe and perhaps square when it comes to underwear. For me it’s all about comfort and up until quite recently it had to be white and cotton. I love to be warm and have always been a fan of knitwear, especially cashmere.
To ensure a sleek silhouette and ensures that there are no visible lumps and bumps I choose cotton seam free underwear which is also really comfortable next to my skin.
My favourite brands are Bodas and Hanro. Both offer luxury cotton bras and briefs in pure cotton and the colours are great. I usually buy a selection, black, white and nude plus few a brighter colour ways to liven things up a bit.
If I find a style I like, that’s comfortable I will buy more than one in each colour. I just can’t wear discoloured underwear and make an effort to refresh my lingerie drawer as soon as I feel things are looking a little jaded.
Bodas sell really good sheer tank tops in neutral colours that are perfect for wearing under sheer cotton poplin or cotton voile shirts. They are also great for layering in winter if you need added warmth without feeling bulky.
For more delicate lingerie pieces, I love Stella McCartney and for nightwear Donna Karan Sleepwear collection and also love Eberjay. Rae Feather will be launching their own sleepwear range for SS 14 – watch this space."
