3 Tips for Choosing the Right Underwear

Your underwear, though not seen, plays a crucial role in your overall comfort whenever you dress, especially on vacation when you may be a lot more active or switching between multiple activities. According to a survey, the average woman owns about 34 pairs of underwear, and it is important to ensure that those pieces are comfortable and stylish. As a woman, your appearance and sense of style go beyond how you look. More importantly, it has more to do with your personal confidence and that’s what others pick up on. Believe it or not, wearing the right underwear can give you a much needed boost in confidence everyday.

Invest In High-Quality Fabrics

Quality underwear may cost more, but it's worth the investment. High-quality underwear is made from durable fabrics and is designed to last longer, saving you money in the long run. Additionally, quality underwear is more comfortable and less likely to lose shape or stretch out after a few wears. As you focus on quality, it is important to consider the fabric. Look for underwear made from breathable and moisture-wicking materials, such as cotton or bamboo, to keep you fresh and dry throughout the day. The fabric of your underwear can greatly affect comfort and breathability. Cotton is the most popular choice for its softness, breathability and absorbency. However, for a more luxurious feel, you can also try other fabrics, such as modal, bamboo, or silk.

Choose the Right Fit

Make sure your underwear fits well to avoid discomfort and visible panty lines. It is best to look for pieces that have a snug yet comfortable fit and sit smoothly against your body. Getting the right fit also includes your bras. The most comfortable bras can go a long way in enhancing your confidence and preventing sweat. A well-fitting bra will not show visible lines in your outer clothing. Did you know that wearing underwear that is too small can lead to discomfort and even health problems? Meanwhile, wearing underwear that is too large can lead to bunching and riding up.

Special Occasions

Do you have a variety of underwear styles on hand for different occasions? For example, you should have a few seamless thongs for tight-fitting clothing. Additionally, you can get a few pairs of boyshorts for more casual looks and high-waisted or full-coverage briefs for more formal occasions. Again, do you have them in different colors, especially neutral ones? Not having the right underwear for different occasions can cause discomfort. It can also cause you to waste a lot of time trying to find the right fit.

I usually wear different underwear on days I'm out running around than I do on the airplane where having a bit more breathability is nice, since the airplane can be very stuffy and warm. I also bring boyshorts or long line (like bicycle shorts) for under dresses/skirts and to sleep in if our accommodations aren't that cool.

No matter the type of underwear you choose for different occasions, remember there are seamless options for each. Thanks to fashion technology, various threads and fabrics enhance your comfort and style when wearing these undergarments. Remember to keep records of the combinations or types that worked best for your comfort as you experiment with different styles.

Whatever style you decide is best for you and are perfect for packing, always keep your comfort, hygiene, and functionality in mind. You don't want to realize halfway around the world that the undergarments you have on are actually the worst. If you think bra shopping at home is terrible, just think about doing it in another country where you may not even speak the language. Use the above tips before you pack and stay comfy and looking good.
