It can throw off the molding and padding. Your first job is to take all your underwear and dump it out on the bed. If it helps, think about it as another kind of recycling.
If it used to fit and you've gained weight like me i know its depressing and easy to say i'll keep it for when i get back to size x but really if you toss it and then lose the weight what a great excuse to go shopping!
I use the cloth drawer organizers from Ikea they look like little cloth baskets to keep everything neat and tidy in my lingerie drawer. This works great to keep everything separated bras, everyday panties, special occasion stuff —each has their own little spot! These are great tips! Right now I have one drawer full with everything thrown in it… not a good thing! PS, love the new look of your blog. I organize my stockings by "can wear to work" solid colors, no seams, no really funky patterns and "cannot wear to work" all the rest of it.
Much gratitude for helping me with my resolutions! I've been good and thrown out a bunch of clothes, lingerie included, but I really need to part with more. I wanted to ask you how to store bras properly; laying down, standing up, smooshed in to make one cup etc?
These are great — I try to sift through my piles every six months or so… Pro fittings make such a big difference! I just noticed you have a new blog layout. My latest organization layout is a drawer for panties, a drawer for bras and a drawer for garter belts, chemises, camisoles and stockings. As my collection evolves, I suspect so will my lingerie organization. Darling the new aesthetic of Confessions of a Lingerie Addict could not be more divine!
And this post is a lifesaver! At present my lingerie is tossed in a haphazard jumble on my closet floor — tres sad, I know!! This is such a really good guide, thank you! I need to sort mine out because I'm always forgetting I have stuff—such a good reminder to get organized: I've been waiting for this lingerie organization pointers from you for a long time. Thanks for finally sharing the tips. And 1 is dead on.. I have big canvas bins I use to store my lingerie.
It's certainly not the most elegant solution but my bedroom ceiling is slanted all funny and there's nowhere that a nice lingerie chest could both a fit and b not hit the ceiling. In my new house I will definitely have something better. But I digress…I keep bras and garter belts in one bin, panties in another, "miscellaneous" slips, crinolines, teddies, corsets, chemises, etc.
I keep my stockings in ziploc bags in a similar bin where I keep my socks. The baggies are actually super nice — it keeps my stockings from getting snagged when I am rifling through looking for socks, and it keeps pairs of stockings matched up!
I like keeping the "always used" and "seldom" used stuff all together, because it inspires me to bust out my nice "seldom worn" stuff more often. This is such a handy post. A simpler option is to divide your drawer into three or four sections and organize by color. Or you can divide your drawer into two sections and place your bras on one side and your panties on the other.
But try to keep your matching sets together, and store them, along with your frillier, more expensive pieces, in a separate place. If the latter is particularly delicate, lay it flat, if you have the room. Some people even prefer to hang particularly dainty garments. If you are among them, make sure you use the right hangers: You need a fresh pair every day. But for most busy women, laundering bras every two or three wears is more realistic sports bras being an exception.
Some underwear obsessives hand-wash their delicates every few days, but, again, who has the time? Just put your bras and panties in a lingerie bag and toss the whole thing into the washing machine with the rest of your clothes.
In other words, a pretty terrible way to store lingerie, especially for someone who loves it as much as I do! The A5 ones shown above are the perfect size for a bra set or body and the A4 ones should fit most basques or girdles.
If you buy luxury lingerie it typically comes in a box as standard, but even high-street stores usually offer some sort of gift-wrapping option. Ask the cashier to see one of their gift boxes and if it looks sturdy, it might be worth paying for even though the lingerie is for yourself. However some brands will use cheap cardboard that bends easily even the luxury ones — my Agent Provocateur box was more of a one-time wrapping solution than long-term storage so if it looks at all flimsy, it might be better to buy your own gift boxes.
Whilst boxes are great, they do take up a bit of space. The three storage solutions listed above are how I store my lingerie, but there are other ways to do it:.
