In the present times, owning a comfy, soft, good-fitted lingerie has become a requirement. The size can change significantly due to various factors ranging from stress, weight loss or gain, or any medical issue. However, it is important to always have well-fitting lingerie by your side which will be your companion and support at all times. 

Due to the pandemic and the numerous deals, purchasing it all online has become second to our nature. But buying the right one can be an issue as we cannot try them out. So here are a few tips by Mr. Siddharth Grover, Director, Groversons Group, that must be kept in mind before investing in them.

Measure Yourself

It is very important to measure your size every 3 months as the size might change depending on your lifestyle. You must measure your band size and cup size before heading out to buy lingerie for yourself. It makes it easy for you to ask for the right size when shopping through physical stores or shopping online without any confusion. 

Try It Out

It is highly advisable that you try the lingerie before buying it. Grover shared that "one of the major reasons for giving this tip is that doing so will help you in getting the real touch and feel of the product, and hence you will be able to make a well-informed decision.  Another key reason is that different brands have different sizes and hence 34B from one brand might be a different variant in some other brand. Hence, always try the lingerie before purchasing so that you have an idea about the fabric and the fit."

Knowing Your Prefrence

Just like your closet has a space for your branded clothes, your intimate wear deserves a wardrobe too. Your collection should have T-shirt bras which are to be worn under t-shirts and shirts, sports bras for workout regimes, backless and off-shoulder bras for different designer tops and dresses along with a diverse variety of thongs and bikini bottoms and other variants considering that any one single type of innerwear won’t go perfectly with all kinds of clothes. 

Hence, do your research as to which type of intimate wear is ideal for the type of clothes that you own and pick the right lingerie accordingly!

No matter how luring the lacy bras and undergarments would be, opt only for the ones that are comfortable. Also, take care that the fabric is of good quality and it should be non-irritable and breathable on the skin. Healthy women should always try to buy bras with wider straps so that there is maximum comfort and no digging of straps.
