There is no shortage of underwear options, either. There is a fit for every need and mood. If you require a thong for an unforgiving skirt, boyshorts for lounging around at home or cheeky panties for your jeans, they are all available. Like bras, panties are sold in solid colors. They are also sold with lace, floral patterns and strappy details. Sometimes a plain pair of panties is best. Other times, you may want to be adventurous, cute or sexy. The good news is that there are panties for all occasions.

If you prefer something lacy, Hanky Panky is a classic underwear brand that remains a favorite of several of the women we talked to. When we asked Barbara Corcoran, the founder of Corcoran Group, about her favorite things, Hanky Panky’s Signature Thong made the list. “Everyone seems to wear these,” she says. “They come in every color, like 30 colors, and it’s like a lace crayon box when you open your drawer.” The thing about them, according to Corcoran, is that “they’re inexpensive and last forever.” She says she doesn’t think she’s ever thrown a pair out, and that the stretch material never gives up, despite the fact that they don’t feel like you’re wearing underwear. “I can’t say I’ve worn just these with a skirt (I need pantyhose), but they’re just great and never, never wrinkle,” Corcoran says. And if you want to stock up, Hanky Panky’s three-packs are a good option. Iva Pawling, co-founder of Richer Poorer, prefers the brand’s low-rise style, of which she has many. “I am equal parts proud and embarrassed that I have only been wearing Hanky Panky underwear for, oh, about 14 years,” she says. “I don’t have to think about them, and they just work.” For something with more coverage, costume designer Leesa Evans told us, “Hanky Panky boy shorts are so soft and comfortable, and never show a panty line.”

When we talked to model, actress, and entrepreneur Amber Rose about the things she can’t live without, she told us a story about going underwear shopping: “So my friend Chyna, we were at Neiman’s the other day, and I was picking out some La Perla underwear,” said Rose. “They were like $120, and Chyna is like, ‘What the hell are you doing? Why are you buying such expensive underwear?’ And I was like, ‘Girl this is going to change your life,’ so I bought her a pair.” If you’re on the fence about splurging on pair of underwear, Rose makes a compelling case for doing so. “I know this sounds crazy, but wearing expensive underwear under your clothes gives you a certain type of confidence in a really cool way.”

Plus, with those measurements you’ll finally get confirmation to toss out or donate those bras in your drawer that you’ve been keeping just to keep (bra, bye!).

The cups should look full and smooth, without spillage. If the cups look kind of empty, you need a smaller cup size. If you are seeing spillage on the sides or the top of the cups, you may need a larger cup size or a bra designed with more cup coverage or higher sides. If you wear an underwire bra, the underwire should be flat against your chest without pinching anywhere.

Several of the women we spoke to named Commando as a go-to underwear brand, whether it be for briefs, bikinis, or thongs. Stylist Jasmine Caccamo says that the brand’s stretch-cotton bikini briefs are seamless and “create a super-flawless (a.k.a. wedgie-free) fit” whether she’s wearing them under leggings or a silk cami dress. “For me, it’s all about comfort and functionality,” Caccamo says. “Not only do I love Commando-brand underwear for myself, but for my celebrity clients as well … I’m obsessed.” Costume designer and Strategist contributor Alison Freer prefers the brand’s boy shorts, which she says “are both elastic and trim-free — meaning they won’t dig in, bunch up, or cause lumpy, unflattering bulges under a flattering pair of pants.” The underwear never shifts, slides, twists, or reveals itself once you start moving and sweating, according to Freer, and best of all, the wide sides keep it securely in place on your body, preventing a wedgie. “If you’ve ever wondered what the stars on the red carpet were wearing underneath those sheer, unforgiving gowns, the answer is almost certainly a pair of Commandos,” Freer says. If a thong is more your style, two of the women we talked to recommended the brand’s mid- and low-rise options. “Okay, so here’s the thing about these thongs,” says Cupcakes and Cashmere founder Emily Schuman of the mid-rise cut. “There is nothing remotely sexy about them — they’re devoid of lace, have super-thick sides, but they lie completely flat against my skin and don’t show under even the tightest, lightest pieces.” The absence of seams and tags “makes it feel like you’ve gone commando (hence the name),” says Schuman. “Best of both worlds!” Stylist Tiffany Gifford is a Commando thong fan, as well, though she prefers the low-rise over the mid-rise. “My favorite underwear are Commando’s thongs,” Gifford says. “They are seamless, and come in great colors and an array of sizes. The best underwear you forget are even there, and that’s what these do.”

Thong: Giving you the least amount of coverage, a thong has just a strip of fabric in the back to prevent panty lines from showing through clothes. According to Dr. Dweck, they're totally safe as long as they're not too tight. "The right thong with a cotton crotch and non-chafing 'G-string' that fits well is not a problem for those who prefer them," she advises.
Former Strategist writer and editor Margaret Rhodes wrote an ode to these high-rise briefs, which she says are like “a warm embrace,” and akin to curling up with a hot-water bottle or a puppy. Part of the Elance’s magic, according to Rhodes, is that “unlike the chic — even slightly sexy — grandma-esque briefs from lines like Araks and Baserange, the plain cotton Elance leaves pretty much everything to the imagination. You don’t wear these undergarments — they wear you. More exactly, they swaddle you.”
Deep V bodysuits can be worn comfortably under your business attire. They are more likely to stay in place throughout the day than separate pieces. However, just because you're wearing a bodysuit doesn't mean that it has to be drab. Cute designs make it so that when it's time to spend time with your partner at home, you can still look confident and sexy.
