Lingerie storing can be tricky sometimes. How do you store your Bras to help them last longer? Where should you keep your underwear? Should they be folded or rolled? How should you keep your Baby Dolls and other delicates? We are here to answer all your questions!
Modest spaces and a hectic lifestyle may have resulted in pushing Lingerie storage at the back of your mind. We don’t blame you! But now it’s time to raid your closet and make some changes. Here are some of our tips to help you out:
Separate the junk: Girls, we know this all too well! We love hanging on to old but cherished Bras for sentimental reasons. It’s ok to admit it! Some just don’t fit us anymore, some have lost their colour or shape. So, the first step is to separate the Lingerie that you have not worn in the past year. Donate the ones that have never been worn (if your friends are ready to accept it). Keep them aside. The rest can be discarded or recycled. In fact, try this DIY face mask using your old Bra, it’s useful and fun!
Organise: Now that you are left with Lingerie you wear every day or on special occasions, it’s time to organise! First group your Bras either by colour or style. For example, Bras with moulded cups can be kept together, Minimisers can be grouped together and so on.
Store your moulded Bras in a drawer, placing them one after the other like they are spooning. Keep in mind that your Bras are not turned inside-out else they will lose their shape. For other non-moulded Bras and underwear, you can get your hands on an inner-wear organiser for your drawer (it has sections) and simply roll your belongings and store them easily. If you don’t have a drawer, you can also use a fabric-lined basket (no snagging) for storage. Simply fold your inner-wear and stack them in a way that all your belongings are visible in one go.
This is a great way of storing your items as you get a bird’s eye view of your collection at once. The inner-wear organiser also helps you avoid messing up a folded pile while grabbing one on the go. In the end, place a scented sachet or some dried flowers like lavender to keep your Lingerie section smelling fresh.
If you have enough closet space, consider using a non-slip hanger with extra slots for strappy Lingerie/Babydolls/Body shapers. You can even get a skirt hanger with clasps for storing strapless Bras.
Hot Tip: Lingerie can make or break your outfit. So it is important to always #pairitright by style, fit, colour and design. It is always a good idea to store your lingerie with matching outfits. E.g keep your Pretty Back Bra with a matching backless/low back dress- you save time and just like that your outfit gets a va-va-voom facelift!
Girls, these are our tips to help you organise your Lingerie cabinet a little better and help them last longer. So, go set that closet and thank us later!
