Step Into Our Underwear Drawer

The age old adage “wear clean undergarments in case you’re in an accident” needs an update.

How about “wear clean undergarments in case of a spontaneous rendezvous with the new guy in accounting”? Or “wear clean undergarments because your personal hygiene and sense of self-worth are at stake”?

Regardless, clean underwear is important (as is the spaces in which they’re kept). Don’t get your knickers in a knot.  Follow these simple rules to keep your drawers and drawers fresh, organized, and up-to-date.

Compartmentalize – use drawer dividers and hanging cubbies.  If possible separate from socks and PJs.  Intimates deserve alone time!   Empty drawers occasionally to vacuum and dust.

Fold delicates appropriately. Rolling underwear saves so much space!

Take your time laundering. Use mesh laundry bags and gentle detergents. Always wash in the “knits and delicates” setting and forego the dryer.

Let go of faded undergarments, boxers, and lingerie that a) doesn’t fit or b) hasn’t seen a cheek or chest in 5 years.  Intimate pieces (especially those given as gifts) can evoke sentiments and memories – be discerning and remember letting go makes space for new things to enter (how esoteric of us!).

Shop strategically.

Invest in a good bra fitting – it’s so worth it! We’ve heard as many as 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. We love Secrets From Your Sister in Toronto.  Or check out blogTo’s Ten Best Bra Boutiques in Toronto.

Avoid the dreaded muffin top. If a piece is too small, it’s time to say goodbye (for everyone’s sake).

Check out: or go,er, commando.  Terrible expression, we know.
