For our monthly Stylish Monday collaboration, we’re discussing, passe-partout, seamless, well-fitting undergarments that can take us through the coming summer months, comfortably and discreetly. A topic that is certainly of much importance to all of us ladies and needs to be discussed. We don’t want to go back to the beginnings in fashion history where corsets and bustles were all about restraining, reshaping and constricting.
Today, we’ve hopefully learned from history’s past mistakes and look onto finding great fit, comfort and a beautiful seamless look as well. We deserve it!
My Stylish Monday Fashionista friends offer suggestions on favourites and, what works best. Read on and click on their links to find out more.
Suzanne – Ask Suzanne Bell
Having the “correct” undergarments on hand can make the difference between an article of clothing getting worn or not, especially in the summer months, when shoulders are bare, and pants, dresses & skirts are more revealing, more sheer, and less forgiving. Today I’m sharing my go-to convertible bra, along with a tank top friendly “no side boob” bra, no show panties, and my favorite high waist brief to wear with dresses and skirts from Target.
Summer is right around the corner (I hope!), which means I’ll be wearing more bare shoulder looks. Finding the right fitting, comfortable strapless bra is such a challenge! I’ve found the perfect one that fits all sizes, is super comfy and stays in place all day long! I’ll also be wearing all the white shorts, jeans, pants and am sharing the perfect undies that are comfy, add a little tummy control and don’t show through! Winning on two accounts!!
Nicole – High Latitude Style
Call me a prude if you want, but I have a medium size collection of old-school half-slips and slips. They are great to stay a bit warmer in winter, and avoid that cheap trendy summer dresses look cheap. Adding a half-slip or slip underneath gives them the look as having a lining when you are standing between the Sun and an on-viewer.

“Period panties were a strange concept to me at first. But now in perimenopause, I am finding them most beneficial. I am reviewing my first pairs on the blog today.”
Ada – Elegance and Mommyhood
I have always loved lace tops and camisoles and this year more than before they are really trending. The lingerie style garments are so stylish right now, like the millennial pink cropped camisole I am wearing (you can find them at Express). I wore mine over the infamous lace Free People bralette (mine is a neutral soft grey color and it goes with everything). With warmer months coming up, wearing bralettes, lace camisoles or lace-trimmed camis is a great idea to layer underneath your Summer dresses, sundresses, or even under tank tops and jackets, cardigans or blazers when you are indoors with the heavy air conditioner blowing.
