Lingerie Essentials

Cross off your list: Our top 10 picks for building your perfect lingerie wardrobe.


$32.20 - $46.00
A signature seamless mesh overlay is invisible under clothes, while this bra's graduated bump of va-voom padding offers oomph (and a super-low plunge neckline to show it off).
For the extra perfect detail the gorgeous eyelash lace on this smooth stunner is ingeniously placed on the inside lip of the cup, to sit, lovely, on the decollete and also lie flat.
Lovely, lovely, lovely. This absolutely lovely contour plunge bra is our kind of basic. And by that we mean: does the job of a boring old t-shirt bra and looks anything but.


Plunging cups, whisper thin molding for perfect coverage, and side boning up to an F cup make this strapless one of our go-to faves. It's been that way for years.
Polished molded cups with impossibly smooth overlay, deep-U underwires, a plunge-spacer construction, and fully convertible straps give impeccable fit and lift up to H cups.
Seamless mesh, gradually padded cups, side boning and silicone edging on the band offer just the right amount of this-won't-fall-down-when-you're-dancing-up-a-storm.


There are black bras and then there are the kind of black bras that seem to possess a transformative magic beyond their powers as simple underpinnings. This is the latter.
With its classic balconette shape and luxe silk satin finish, this sophisticated demi is the kind of fabulous-yet-wearable stunner every woman needs in her lingerie drawer.
This dazzling demi is a true showstopper. And traffic stopper. Delectable single-seam eyelash cups, contrasting silk wings, and lovely eyelash straps? Jaw dropper.


This floral lace bra is a breath of fresh air. The double straps have a delicate little lace tendril up one side, perfect for peeking out of boatnecks or trenchcoats.
This gorgeous balcony bra is like a perfect poem, with its delicate embroidered cherry blossoms and classic French palette, faces in the crowd, petals on the bough.
A lacy demi that is as gorgeous on the body as it is wearable as an everyday basic from an A to an E cup is most certainly something worth noticing. Consider yourself noticed.


Covered in a perfectly decadent, deco-luxe, amazeballs graphic jaguar print (!) these 100% silk Coco-piped PJ's are LITERALLY the cat's pajamas. We can't get enough.
It's incredibly rare to find something that's (literally) as perfect layered over leather skinnies or under flowy chiffon as it is over or under nothing at all. Total swoon.
Calling all lovebirds! This lovely, airy, bohemian teddy is the perfect thing for feathering your nests. We are all a-twitter over its feather print and think you will be too.


From its tuxedo collar to its pockets, if this isn't the most glamorous, luxe, fabulously luscious and tactile silk robe you've ever seen, frankly my dear, we don't give a damn.
This sweet robe is Sunday-evening tested and Journelle approved. Equal parts cottony-and-fluffy, the combo of soft and warm is pretty much ideal since it's also reversible.
When we couldn't find the perfect silk robe (classic, timeless, luxe, effortless, utterly divine) so we decided to take matters into our own hands and make our own.


With their perfectly flirty Minnie Mouse polka-dots, slinky sheer Betty Boop feel, and gorgeous Bettie Page pin-up vibes, these stay-ups are as fun as they are fabulous.
Though we most certainly love being naked, sometimes being just almost naked is even better. When that's our get down, we always reach for these gloriously sheer stay-ups.
Classically stunning and totally sexy, these silky smooth sheer thigh highs have us reaching for our heels and counting down the hours until we can take off our skirt suit.


$16.10 - $20.00
The wide bands of signature no-dig stretch lace at the hips make this low-rise thong invisible under clothes, totally comfortable, and truly quite sexy. One of our faves.
Literally seamless, this wide-sided slinky microfiber thong is totally invisible under clothing. You could go commando, but we promise this is better.
We get excited when we find something that is so exactly right we wouldn't change a thing. That's why we love the Trenta thong. Soft, comfy, flattering, and totally sexy.


A classic boyshort shape rendered in gorgeous, sheer, stretch floral lace. Wedgie-proof comfort and coverage with the perfect amount of sexy. One of our fave lovely basics.
With its delicately lovely picot trim, classic bikini silhouette, and exclusive to Journelle Dentelle de Calais honeycomb lace, this piece is effortless elegance incarnate.
$21.00 - $30.00
Oh, hey, there. Soft and lovely stretch lace has sweet edging that's the perfect width not to dig into hippy hips and the sheer bum is simply stunning. What's not to like?


Wary of wardrobe malfunctions? May we (highly) recommend this double sided tape arsenal. The wondrous strips come in three sizes and are seriously like little miracles.
We know, we know. Stick on bra? Um, nope. But for those fabulous dresses which require no straps, back, middle (or all of the above), these are truly fabulous. For A/B cups.
Whether it's a chilly office or a clingy dress, sometimes you want a little, um, coverage. Nippies are made with a new Invisifeel silicone for the smoothest coverage possible.
