Intimate Must Haves

The Right Underwear Will Enhance Your “Look”

Beverly Weinkauf, owner Toujours ( — a tiny shop offering a selection of fine intimate  lingerie designed to make women more attractive and sexy, says lingerie has always reflected the lifestyle and female fashions of the day. She selects styles based on quality, how well they are designed and how well they fit. She has been in business for over twenty years and has seen a number of changes in women’s intimate lingerie over the years. We asked Beverly to list the essential intimate lingerie.

Beverly’s recommendations for a lingerie wardrobe to suit all your needs:

Four (4) everyday, no nonsense, comfortable bras — two (2) light-colored, two black. Why four? If something works, the more you have, the longer they last. Either a contour or smooth cup.

One good, low pushup bra for low plunging necklines.

One strapless bra with removable, transparent straps.

One racerback bra.

One incredible, sexy, lacy, over-the-top set.

Twelve of the same style of bottoms (full bikinis, thongs, tangas) that work best for your body shape and age. Try some colors for interest, and of course basic black. Panties should be comfortable. Look for a high-waisted firm control-shaping brief; that has flat seams.

One control brief for slim-fitting garments.

Two or three tank or spaghetti-strapped camisoles for layering and coverage (adds a layer of warmth for the winter).

One full or half-slip.

Half a dozen hosiery, including neutral, black, and something festive (try fishnets, leggings, or a different color).

Wearing the right underwear will enhance your “look” and  thus add to your self-confidence. From time to time getting a bra fitting at a good  lingerie shop or department store is necessary because our body parts are constantly shifting, and / or our weight might change, etc.
