If you want to splurge, Harrington recommends a pair of silk tap shorts, like this pair from Harlow & Fox. “Silk is the ultimate lingerie fiber — cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and with a luxurious feel against the skin,” she says. “If you can afford silk, buy silk.” Harrington calls these her favorite elegant silk pair, and “the definition of everyday indulgence.“
While braless or wearing a non-padded bra, use a measuring tape to measure around your torso directly under your bust, where a bra band would sit. The tape should be level and very snug. Round to the nearest whole number. If the number is even, add four inches. If it’s odd, add five. Your band size is the sum of this calculation. (So if you measured 32 inches, your band size is 36. If you measured 33 inches, your band size is 38.)
Three women we talked to named underwear from newly launched brand The KiT as their current favorite. Created by stylists Jamie Mizrahi and Simone Harouche — who, as the Cut notes, have plenty of experience working with undergarments that fit seamlessly beneath outfits — the brand offers bras, bodysuits, pasties, bandage tape, and eight kinds of underwear that come in neutral shades. Maisonette co-founder Sylvana Ward Durrett is one fan of the brand. “From the seamless briefs to the adhesive thongs, each style is like true magic where I don’t have to worry about underwear lines,” she says. “I also love the high-waisted styles that smooth everything out and often opt for these when I’m wearing a slim-fitting dress or skirt.” On the whole, Durrett says that underwear from The KiT is lightweight and has a barely-there feeling. Morgan Hutchinson, founder of clothing line BURU, says that she’s become a “fast fan” of the brand since its launch as well. She particularly likes The KiT’s seamless thongs. “The high-rise is awesome for mum-tum,” she says. And, as the Cut reports, the fact that the underwear is designed by stylists who have to pay attention to what shows and doesn’t show under a garment is a big plus. Nell Diamond, founder of Hill House Home, agrees, saying she loves that The KiT was created by stylists because it means she worries less about whether her underwear will show under a dress or if her bra is the wrong shape. “The KiT’s styles have really simplified things for me,” Diamond says. “Plus, their lightest shade is pale enough even for a ghost like me (my nickname in middle school was Casper.”)

I'm a guy and I live in Florida. Exposure to the sun has given me some serious leg blemishes...I talked to my Doctor and she suggested that I try wearing Thigh High Stockings to soften the look of the skin blemishes. I bought several pair of Q2 Nude and they look, and feel awesome..I have received several positive comments from ladies who say my legs look rather sexy....they knew I was wearing stockings.
Hosiery, also referred to as legwear, describes garments worn directly on the feet and legs. The term originated as the collective term for products of which a maker or seller is termed a hosier; and those products are also known generically as hose. The term is also used for all types of knitted fabric, and its thickness and weight is defined by denier or opacity. Lower denier measurements of 5 to 15 describe a hose which may be sheer in appearance, whereas styles of 40 and above are dense, with little to no light able to come through on 100 denier items.

A fitted t-shirt will show up any bulges from cups which are too small, and likewise a moulded bra that is not filled out will show lines at the bust where the edge of the cups are visible. It's also useful to make sure that the colour of your bra is not showing through a thin or light coloured top - if you need to make your bra invisible, go for seamless cups which match your own skin colour rather than the colour of your top.

Laura Schubert, co-founder of pubic-hair-oil company Fur, says ODDOBODY’s underwear is “perfect” — especially the brief. “It’s a classic,” she says. “I love a classic brief because they are comfortable and easy to wear. The stitching and fabric ensures that they don’t bunch or have weird lines.” Schubert also likes that the brand’s pieces are made of 100 percent cotton, and that ODDOBODY “promotes speaking comfortably about bodies, health, and identity.”
Performance fibers: Synthetics like polyester and nylon are common in activewear because they wick moisture and dry quickly. For the same reason, these fibers are ideal for underwear, especially if you're working out. Lace underwear and microfiber styles are also usually made from synthetics. Just remember to remove them after sweating; according to Dr. Dweck, "it's important to remove wet exercise clothes as soon as able to avoid infection and irritation in intimate areas."

Luisana Mendoza de Roccia, co-founder of Maisonette, calls the brand Negative Underwear her “no-fuss underwear solution.” She says all of the styles are sleek and lay smoothly on the body, and that she can feel confident that they’ll stay in place during the day. “For the daytime, I’ll go for the cotton briefs, and for evening affairs where I want to feel a bit more luxe, I’ll pull out the silky briefs,” de Roccia told us. “Plus they’re made by women for women, so you can’t go wrong.”
I am delighted to find Shadowline again. I used to purchase it at a department store. When they discontinued it, I was disappointed. However, I am completely satisfied with my orders from herroom.com. They arrive in a timely manner and are packaged well. So far, I am very pleased with the product and the price. I look forward to their occasional special offers.
