Summer Survival Guide: Underwear Edition
Whether you're searching for a bridal shower gift or treating yourself to new undies, we've got several amazing options in store! Here's a quick guide to our favorite brands and styles for every occasion:
For a bridal shower gift:
Eberjey's Colette collection is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy, which is why it's one of our favorite options for brides. We love the cheeky lace thong designed with moderate coverage that's extremely popular for ladies who want something revealing (but maybe less revealing than a g-string).
Pro Tip: We also offer gift receipts if you're unsure about the recipient's sizing! We're more than happy to help them make an exchange.
For 90 degree weather:
When you combine a heat wave with Maine's humidity, you've gotta think twice before wearing just any random pair of lace undies. Natural fibers are key— that's why we love Knockout! Their thongs and briefs are light, soft, natural and breathable, with a 100% cotton liner that's patented to wick and absorb moisture.
For thin fabrics and summer outfits:
Commando makes the best seamless thong out there. It's laser-cut patented European microfiber is ultra-thin and breathable, which makes it our ideal choice for even your slinkiest maxi dress. We're also a huge fan of Chantelle Soft Stretch bottoms because they stay put and don't shift around when worn underneath a flowy skirt. Bonus points are awarded to Commando and Chantelle's high rise briefs, which smooth out your silhouette without feeling too tight around the waist.
Pro Tip: No matter which styles you prefer to wear, we always recommend wearing nude bottoms under white clothing. It blends in better when you match your skin tone, whereas white underwear reflects light and shines ultra-bright through many fabrics.
But if you're looking for shaping:
We love Simone Perele's Invisi'Bulles control briefs that are luxuriously soft, yet snug and supportive. If you're looking for a thong, Yummie makes a few different styles in varying rises that are fantastic for tricky bridesmaid dresses.
Pro Tip: We know shapewear racks can be overwhelming with so many options, and our goal is to help customers have the most easy-breezy shopping experience possible. Please feel free to ask us questions! We've got you covered :)
And finally, the best underwear for when you forgot to bring extra underwear:
You're not the first person to dash into Aristelle after forgetting to bring a change of underwear to the gym! But if you're going to have to make an unexpected purchase, we believe it should still be something you'll love and enjoy wearing everyday. That's why we recommend Hanky Panky thongs or Chantelle soft stretch bottoms (for fuller coverage). Both brands are comfortable, breathable, tried-and-true favorites of many longtime customers. And one size fits most!
