Lingerie shopping is NEVER what it looks like in films... We either shop for ourselves or basically send a link to the set we want to some unsuspecting partner. It's far from what you're brought up to believe; walking around a beautiful, expensive boutique with some dapper Richard Gere-esque company.
Whether you're an effortless mesh underwear gal or like/want/need a little more support and uplift, we've chosen the best sets to buy now. They're not try-hard sexy but chic, low-key and modern.
That doesn't mean you have to do some cringe 'big reveal' but, basic as it sounds, wearing a new sassy set is always a good feeling.
As we all know you can spend LOADS on lingerie (like, really loads), so we've picked a few pricey pieces you'll be wearing (and handwashing delicately) for ever more, as well as some impressively bargain bra and knicker combos.
Cos and & Other Stories are our favourites from the high street - with cool sets for about £30 and a pretty great range, you can't really go wrong. (Note to partners, too: Make sure you find out the right size before you shop. That's never going to go down well. Ever.) Cheek Frills, too, are a go-to for cute easy-to-buy sets.
Araks is our current hero brand. If you're obsessed with personalising (so, everyone), you can get monogram briefs as well as beautiful cotton and silk sets in playful jewel tones. Fleur Of England is another favourite, if you want something a little more provocative. The minimalist lacy sets are pretty naked without looking at all tacky.
Whichever way you want to do it — shop for yourself or pass on to a present-buyer, here's our edit of the best sets to buy now...
