When I was growing up, I had a friend who literally believed it was a cardinal sin to not own a matching bra and knicker set. Even at the age of 15. And from then on I remembering thinking – is it odd that I don’t match?? Is this a thing everyone does apart from me???
Let’s just say, I definitely panicked/thought a lot more about it than I should have. And as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gone through multiple stages of caring/not caring for different reasons.
Now I work for Brastop and my lingerie drawer is fully stocked with well-fitting, beautiful bras, I definitely find it easier to grab a bra with matching knickers, even at 7 o’clock on a Monday morning when it’s the last thing on my mind. But not everyone is like that or has the privilege.
I’m sure everyone has different reasons for swinging either way. It could be that your partner likes it, or purely because you like everything to be the same – which is definitely me these days. Others may think 'well my trusty knickers are ones that don’t match my bras and I’m okay with that'. I definitely believe that when you’re a teenager, especially at the age my friend questioned me about whether I ‘matched’ or not, should NOT have been a major concern.
Some of my favourite sets right now include the Curvy Kate Smoothie Soul Plunge Bra, because the Curvy Kate Smoothie Soul Brazilian Brief make any bum look sh-amazing.
The Scantilly Peek-a-Boo Lace Balconette Bra with Scantilly Peek-a-Boo Lace High Waist Brief, as there’s no better way to wear a sexy high rise brief than with Scantilly!
And finally the everyday Gossard Glossies Sheer Plunge Bra and matching Gossard Glossies Short in the bronze colourway as the lightweight fabric and subtle shimmer is just super dreamy, and the short is so comfortable you forget you’re even wearing it!
But we want to know what you think! Do you match your bras and knickers on a daily basis? Or is it just for special occasion? Or do you generally not care, and comfort is key for everyday? Whatever it may be, shout about it to us on Twitter or Facebook!
