Frenchify Your Lingerie

There are a few things I have learned from my French friends over the year about the culture. One of those that stood out to me years ago is that what you wear under your clothes is just as important as what you wear on the outside. Single or taken, lingerie is an important element of the French wardrobe.

After a little hesitation, I tried it and I have to say it was an instant mood booster! No one needs to know that you are wearing a matching lace set underneath your sweatpants or flowy Summer dress but it makes a huge difference in the way you feel. I think we could all use a little uplift right now.

I have tried out a few brands over the years that I have come to love and currently wear. (Mom, clothes your eyes or maybe you want to take notes)

Wacoal

Wacoal reached out to me about a year ago about sending me a few items. I hadn’t tried their bras before so I stopped over to Galleries Lafayette to get fitted. I wanted to make sure I was getting the right size. They do offer them at Nordstrom and they can size you in the lingerie department. If you are buying online, try to buy your regular size and then maybe one size up or down if you want to make sure you are getting the right fit. I have had issues with bras in the past and now it is a big focus of mine to always get refitted and checked. I wear a 30DD normally but my chest is the first thing to shrink or grow when my weight changes.

P.S. I have heard the Wacoal strapless bra is the best one out there. This is my next purchase!

Natori

The Natori Feathers Bras are the bras I own and have bought for years. I have them in neutral colors of nude and black but I also have some fun patterns and colors.

Cosabella

Cosabella is the brand I wear the most. I love their thongs/boyshorts. They are way more comfortable than Hanky Panky in my opinion and last for years. (hang dry do not put in the dryer)

Chantelle

Chantelle is designed in Paris and available in the US and around the world. They have a variety of sizes for all body types.

Princesse Tam Tam

Princesse Tam Tam is a brand you will see around a bunch on the streets of Paris. They make adorable lingerie and also super cute swimsuits!

If you are looking for an affordable brand, Adore Me sent me some matching sets around my birthday and I loved them! I have been wearing them all of the quarantine. I didn’t realize how much I actually needed to feel good until I put them on. Plus, my bra size isn’t the easiest to find and they had my size and it fit great!

Take a little time for yourself this weekend and before you queue up another Netflix marathon, draw a bath or hot shower and put on a matching set of lingerie.

  1. Wonderful post! I’ve always been of the belief that you should enjoy your lingerie for yourself first and foremost. When I travel to Paris, I always budget for a trip to my favorite lingerie store Aubade. Their staff is always helpful in helping me chose pieces that fit well and are comfortable. And-while it can be an investment-if you start slowly with quality pieces-they will last a long time. Plus-it’s a wonderful memento from your travels 😉 I’ve found that it is good to purchase 2-3 pairs of panties/thongs that coordinate with each bra. This way you can get more wear out of them. Thank you for the great post and beautiful photos!

  2. Such a fun post! I am a Natori Feathers girl too. Shocking how getting an actual fitting changes what bra size you would wear…One of my favorite purchases was lingerie on my first trip back to Paris years ago..It’s the little things that make the difference ;)! Your photos are gorgeous.

    • You are so sweet, thank you!! The Natori Feathers bras are the best and the discount during the anniversary sale is the best time to stock up! Wearing the right bra size can make ALL the difference.
