Those of you who wear lovely matching underwear...
I've decided to have a lingerie overhaul as I have loads of lovely stuff that I never wear. Every day I just go for the usual hi-legs and t-shirt bra. So my question is, more specifically, what about those days during the month when you just need to wear more practical pants? Do you have an stash of 'emergency/boring' pants or do you still wear the lovely stuff even during your period?
I wear matching everyday. I have different knickers I wear when I work out they Brazilian type ones as look ok under workout bottoms. I usually wear black undies when I have my period. They are still nice knickers though & I always wear a black bra to match. I always worry if I was in an accident that I didn't have matching underwear.
I don't tend to buy matching sets of knickers as they tend to be man made fabrics and chosen for look rather than sense. I buy M&S knickers that coordinate (easy if white or black) and in cotton. I do have some complete matching sets but they don't look any more matching than the sets I've chosen to put together if that makes sense?
Whenever I buy a new bra I always buy two pairs of matching knickers which helps because I don't wash bras after every wear. When I have my period I wear plain knickers but in colours which vaguely match the bra I'm wearing. I also had to overhaul my underwear drawer a few years back and bought a nice new set each month on payday so now I can always be coordinated.
I always, always wear matching lingerie and I wear it every day. I don't buy very expensive/fragile lingerie anymore - I want it to wash easily and survive the process - and my main supplier is Princesse Tam Tam. I buy 4/5 bras and two pairs of matching knickers every season.
