Foundational garments are the unsung hero of women's fashion
. These intimates are engineered to do everything from flatten midsections and cover bare legs to support and even lift busts, all in the service of making garments lay right and look flattering. Of course, as women's everyday clothes have gotten more casual since the 1960s, so too have their unmentionables. Groupon's always-updating selection of women's underwear showcases this wide range.
Groupon's stock of women's underwear starts with the basics: bras and panties. The most traditional bras
have molded, often padded cups and underwire to offer major support and full coverage. Some women find that too constrictive, so you may prefer bra styles
such as seamless T-shirt bras or trendy bralettes. Sports bras, including those from Groupon's exclusive Form + Focus line, help make exercising more comfortable
—especially when our bra size chart
guides you to the right fit. There are just as many choices of underwear styles
, running the gamut of full-coverage boy shorts and high-waisted briefs to smaller bikini-cut panties
That Little Extra Something
Bra and panty sets already strike a variety of distinctive styles, but when you add a little glitz here and a little glam there, you get lingerie
for all sorts of tastes. There are lacy corsets and garter belts for special occasions, as well as satin-smooth chemises and robes for when you want to be feeling yourself at home. Shapewear
, on the other hand, is diverse in terms of the purposes it serves, from slimming waists and compressing thighs to lifting busts and boosting booties. Both styles of women's underwear are intended to add some extra spark to women who are already glowing with confidence.
The Not-So-Private Pieces
Finishing off your lingerie-based look with high-end pantyhose or stockings is a classic look, but there are plenty of casual uses for hosiery and socks
. Extra-thick or fleece-lined tights help keep dresses and skirts in the wardrobe rotation well into winter, while thermal socks are key to enduring the outdoors in cold weather. But as soon as the day is done, it's time to pull on the comfy loungewear
. Which, if we're being honest, the fun patterned socks, fluffy robes, and flannel pajamas are how we want to dress most of the time anyway.
