Lingerie is often mentioned in tandem with Valentine’s Day, but the truth is we don’t need to wait for an excuse to wear something beautiful. Special moments, of course, make it fun to put in a little extra effort. But we’re of the opinion that every day is an occasion for sexy, simple lingerie.
We’re firm believers in not waiting to bust out the pretty stuff. On top of that, we need lingerie to be more than just sexy. Sure, the lacy factor is fun, but the restricting cuts and itchiness are not. Anyone else find that they actually use their lingerie when it fits well and is minimal enough to wear under an everyday outfit? Give us lingerie that’s chic, elegant, and comfortable too, please.
With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the prettiest lingerie sets that don’t scream Valentine’s Day, in a good way. There’s some lace, of course, but the pieces below are sexy enough to feel special, while being comfortable enough that you’ll actually be excited to wear them again.
Whether you’re looking for something to freshen up your lingerie drawer in time for the holiday or throwing a tee over your skivvies before hopping on a virtual girl’s wine night, these bra and undie sets (and a bodysuit or two!) from our favorite lingerie brands have got you covered.
Fleur du Mal
Looking for a truly unique piece to make yourself feel extra special? Fleur du Mal has you covered with its beautiful silks and lace—luxurious lingerie for any occasion in a variety of sizes.
What began as a small children’s line in 2016 is now gaining traction among the masses. ARQ creates cozy and soft undergarments with an equal focus set on function and style. Their basics are anything but… basic—the prints are pretty, the colors are vibrant, and they’re just the thing you want to be lounging around in all day, every day.
After growing frustrated with the lack of skin-tone undergarments in the market, founder Ade Hassan set out with a goal of empowering women of color and redefining the color “nude.”
Pretty, sustainable styles that don’t break the bank? Adore Me’s all about all of that. Famous for being the first brand to offer extended sizing across all categories, Adore Me is changing the game around inclusivity and what it means to feel sexy in your body in 2022.
The Great Eros
Expert fits with cutting edge fabrics that move with you throughout your day, these pieces are oh so soft and ideal for every day, while still remaining quite sexy.
Luxuriously crafted, accessibly priced, these intimates are made to fit your lifestyle. You won’t find lacy hot pink sets here—Negative’s sheer, minimal, and seamless sets are something you’ll want to wear every day.
Gone are the days of wearing pretty lingerie for someone else. Juem designs styles with the mission of empowering women to own their confidence and sensuality. They offer everything from maternity pieces to styles that are perfect for everyday wear. The Australian brand also donates 1% of their revenue to non-profits and is committed to offsetting their carbon emissions (they’re carbon neutral in Australia!). Just a few more reasons you can feel good about your purchase.
Whenever there’s a new SKIMS drop, you can expect to hear about it on social media within the hour. Among her many other pursuits, Kim K knows how to do lingerie. SKIMS styles are comfy, cozy, and give off cool-girl vibes. While there’s dupes aplenty, I can’t stress this enough: There’s nothing like the soft, smooth fabric of the real thing.
We love the play on words. The Underragument advocates the power of individuality and arguing against the norm. Showcased by a diverse set of models, each lingerie piece is named and labeled after an empowering quote to remind the wearer to embrace their individuality.
Supporting women-owned brands is where it’s at, particularly when it comes to lingerie. Beyond that though, there are plenty of reasons to want to shop from LIVELY. A community-driven brand, they’re committed to supporting women, literally and figuratively, with comfortable styles that couldn’t be further from being restrictive.
Sexy pieces you can wear on the regular? Yes, please. Kye Intimates boasts the perfect combination of romantic and modern lingerie, made from light and sheer fabrics, for you to slip into.
Known for their lux minimal pieces, this Melbourne-based lingerie brand wants you to turn up the heat with a little self-love. You’ll find breathtaking bra and panty sets that will easily be incorporated into your everyday attire.
Kit Undergarments is the brainchild of two stylists with 20 years of industry expertise between them. While their client roster boasts a range of the best-dressed celebs (Katy Perry, Nicole Richie, Riley Keough, and Jessica Alba, to name a few), their styles and fits are accessible and paired-back while still feeling special.
Their IG bio says it all: “Loving the way women are naturally and the perfectness in that.” Arak’s consciously crafted pieces are beautifully classic, yet playful.
No lingerie collection is complete without the perfect bra. A cult-favorite, CUUP makes unrestrictive, flattering bras in supportive sizes ranging from A-H and comfy undies to match.
Featuring everything from backless bodysuits to light-as air bralettes, each of their pieces is meant to embrace a woman’s natural curves and turn “worn for your partner” pieces into everyday wear.
With an intimates line that focuses on comfort, your search for a comfy cotton bralette and undies set is over. We love this soft set for a cozy night in.
Savage x Fenty
Riri can do no wrong and Fenty x Savage’s commitment to inclusive sizing and gorgeous pieces is no exception. Savage x Fenty offers everything from loungewear to racy and fierce options that kick it up a notch.
Hanky Panky’s classic lace bras and panties can be spotted from a mile away. The brand is known and loved for their subtly sexy, but streamlined, styles. Hanky Panky’s been designing lingerie that balances comfort with beauty for the past half-century, but there’s nothing old-fashioned about them. Pro tip: If you’re a bralette kind of person or are looking for an ever-elusive comfortable thong, Hanky Panky has the fits for you.
There’s a reason certain brands make it big on social media. Their prints are creative, their shapes are cute, and they offer a wide and inclusive range of sizes and styles. Parade checks off all the boxes beautifully. Their undergarments are a sight to see (seriously, it’s tempting not to cover them up), but more than that, they’re as comfy as comfy can be.
