Every woman deserves to look and feel her best. Whether you decide to achieve this by booking a spa treatment once every few months or by taking the time to do your skincare routine each day, investing in some luxury underwear could be just what you need to make your week extra special.

Underwear is easy to forget about, but it can make a huge difference to your overall comfort and sense of confidence. Budget or cheap underwear doesn’t always do the trick, as it might not fit as well as you’d like or stay in good condition after a few washes.

So, if you’re in the market for some luxury underwear to keep you feeling like your best self, what should your first steps be? This guide should make your shopping experience much smoother, helping you find your next favorite lingerie set

Pay attention to materials

Materials are one of the main things that make luxury underwear such a pleasure to wear. Look out for materials like silk, cashmere, bamboo and organic cotton. However, don’t be put off by pieces that are made from a blend of natural and synthetic fibers. Lots of underwear is made with added stretchy materials for extra comfort.

You will also need to pay attention to the way the underwear is stitched together. If the fabric is already coming apart at the seams or you can see loose threads, changes are your lingerie isn’t as luxurious as you’d hoped. 

Price isn’t everything

It’s natural to gravitate towards underwear that has a higher price point when you’re looking for quality. After all, don’t higher-quality pieces cost more? Not necessarily. While you’re unlikely to find the luxury quality you’re looking for at your local supermarket, just because a brand sells its products for a high price doesn’t mean they’re worth that much money. Always do your research and figure out how to best spend your cash. And if you do find that the luxury underwear of your choice is a bit out of your price range, make sure you look out for sales and coupons.

Take your time

Shopping for luxury underwear isn’t like picking up a pack of three T-shirt bras from the nearest outlet – it’s an indulgent act of self-care. Make sure you enjoy the shopping experience as much as the items themselves, so don’t rush into a purchase. Why not make a day of it and treat yourself to lunch as well? You may even decide to book a fitting consultation at one of the boutiques you visit, which will help you to find underwear or a bra that fits perfectly. Many sales assistants are also well-versed at helping you find a set of lingerie that’s suited to your body type too. So, regardless of whether you have wide hips, a small rib cage or a larger bust, you’ll be able to find something that makes you feel great.

Even if you can’t see yourself wearing luxury underwear on a day-to-day basis, it’s always worth having a special set on hand for those days when you want to pamper yourself.
