“HOT” Undergarments

Summer means two things will happen with certainty:  hot weather, and therefore you will be forced to wear more revealing clothing, whether you like it or not.   This is not the time for fussy bras and control-top anything, unless you enjoy being a sweaty, hot mess.


There are two things to consider when shopping for summer undergarments: comfortable, cool fabrics and the right silhouette for thinner materials and cuts.  Oh, and the undergarments should be sexy when at all possible, like this bra perfect for tanks and maxidresses.

 This bra checks both boxes: it has a minimalist silhouette, and a light, comfortable fabric.

Now, if you’re more generously endowed, you already well know that a dainty little “bralette” is not for you.  This smooth, thin, sweat-wicking fabric is perfect, and the racerback silhouette makes it possible to wear under most anything.  Plus, Wacoal simply manufactures the most well-made bras on the market.

Hanky Panky undergarments have a cult following, and for good reason: they are made well, they are sexy, and they are uber-comfortable.  What more could a girl (or a guy) want?  The airy, lace-like properties of this thong are perfect for higher temps, and won’t show lines under your favorite dresses.
