Lingerie can be simple, sweet, sexy, or all of the above. It can be worn under a suit, as a personal touch for yourself, or in the bedroom. Unlike the practical bras and underwear you stock up on, these pieces are meant to be enjoyed — especially in 2020 when we deserve little pleasures. Whether you put on a soft pink teddy for a night of lounging at home with a bottle of wine or if you feel like taking sensual mirror photos in a matching lace set to send to your quarantine crush, there’s no time like now to update your lingerie drawer.

Shopping for a pretty bra or slinky slip is experience that allows you to explore yourself on a deeper level. It’s therapy for your body-ody-ody. To help you with that, we gathered up some of our favorites, at all different price points.
