mesh wash bag for bras

A true lingerie lover will have a bountiful lingerie inventory. From corsets and a variety of bra styles, to matching sets and stockings, she has it all. But there are some non-traditional items she needs to complete her lingerie drawer.

Here are six non-lingerie items every lingerie lover must have:

1.  Shapewear

No lingerie drawer is complete without shapewear. Whether you’re a size two or a size 12, every woman needs good shapewear. It keeps your garment from riding up, and it offers a smooth silhouette under your clothes.

2.  Lingerie wash bag

A lingerie wash bag is essential when using the washing machine to launder lingerie. It keeps your lingerie safe within its meshing, so water can gently flow through. And, it protects your lingerie from other garments in the wash. Of course, it’s best to hand wash your intimates to extend the lifespan of lingerie. However, sometimes you’re in a pinch and need a quicker option. And, when lingerie lovers have so much lingerie they adore, having a lingerie wash bag is a must.

3.  Lingerie travel container

Just like a lingerie wash bag protects lingerie in the wash, a lingerie travel container protects lingerie in your luggage. This item is one of many lingerie packing hacks to make travel easier. There are a few different styles of lingerie travel containers. Some are hard shells to protect your bra cups from being pushed in during travel. Some are larger containers with compartments to let you stack bras and organize panties. Others are simple pouches, making it easy to find panties in your luggage. From lingerie to swimwear, these travel containers are perfect for keeping delicate items safe and organized.

4.  Adhesive bra

An adhesive bra is a non-traditional piece of lingerie. These bras are backless and strapless, simply adhering to your breasts. Adhesive bras are great to wear with garments that are low-cut, backless or have a unique fit.  This type of bra can give you additional cleavage, if you want it, and it covers your nipples. Lingerie lovers need this item to add more versatility to their wardrobes.

5.  Pasties

Like an adhesive bra, pasties keep your nipples from showing through your clothes. These are a go-to for when you want a natural look, yet don’t want to be worried about your nipples peeking. Pasties come in variety of materials and shapes. It’s a great idea to have a couple pairs of pasties. You can keep one in your lingerie drawer and one in your lingerie travel case.

6.  Bra converting clips

A lingerie lover will most likely have a convertible bra. Convertible bras can be converted into a variety of bra styles – like strapless, halter, one-shoulder or crisscross. But, what do you do when your convertible bra is dirty or misplaced, and you need a bra to wear with a racerback top? You use bra converting clips! These clips pull your bra straps together in the center of your back for strap-free shoulders. This is another item that you should keep in your lingerie drawer and in your lingerie travel container.

If you thought you had it all, lingerie lovers, think again! You now have some extra items to add to your drawer. And with these non-lingerie items in your lingerie inventory, you’ll be ready for anything.
