Once upon a time, a little known brand known for its push-up bras and pink-striped walls ruled the lingerie world. It wasn’t inclusive, it wasn’t diverse, but it was all we had. Lingerie brands have come a long, long way. While that specific brand (you know the one) has made some strides, it’s been toppled as the ruler of lingerie land. Now, a slew of lingerie brands have come forth, giving us more inclusive, more diverse, and more comfortable lingerie to shop. Because, no–not everyone has a beige skin tone, nor does everyone wants to wear a spaghetti noodle for a thong or fit into a 34B cup.
We’ve scoured the internet and tested a ton of bras, undies, bustiers–you name it. The verdict is in: lingerie is better–waaay better–and more body-positive than before. There really is a style, color, and size for every person and occasion. Below, the 25 best lingerie brands to shop right now.
