Don’t know where to go to get bras that fit, or need an undie update for Valentine’s Day (and beyond)? Check out our shopping edit of what’s new. Here are our new season shopping picks for lingerie that will have you looking and feeling great.
Expat Living staff recommend their favourite lingerie stores in Singapore. From women, to women!
I need a bra with good support for a larger bust and pants that are preferably seamless. M&S used to have the perfect bra that held everything together and looked fairly attractive, but now often the shoulder straps don’t tighten enough – an issue I’ve had with several brands in the past. La Senza ones are sometimes alright. I’m happy to spend $80 on a great bra. For pants, Cotton On Body works for me, as well as M&S and La Senza. Fabrics need to be really soft; some of the acrylic lace is really scratchy. I must be a princess!” — REBECCA BISSET
“I’ve been buying Bonds hipster briefs since I was a teenager. They’re soft, stretchy and long-lasting. I have to wear cotton in this heat! I buy them in bulk when I’m back in Australia, but they are also now available on Zalora.” — DANIELLE ROSSETTI
“I shop at Victoria’s Secret. It has the prettiest range of underwear I’ve found! Generally, bras are priced from $129 to $150, and most of the time I find the pants are on offer.” — JACQUI YOUNG
“I love Gooseberry Intimates (gooseberryintimates.com). It’s my go-to brand when I want to treat myself and give my confidence a little boost – they have some really sexy get-ups! Their bodysuits and lace bras fit amazingly and offer lots of support. Prices range from about $50 to $200.” — LEANDA RATHMELL
“I love the simple yet elegant designs from Naked & Unbound (nakedandunbound.com), which is a local lingerie brand. Everything is designed and made in Singapore from lightweight fabrics that are suitable for our hot weather. If I’m on a budget, I like stocking up on affordable yet comfortable lingerie in Bangkok at Platinum Fashion Mall. You can easily find seamless underwear in various colours going at $9 for three pieces – a steal! ” — ANTHIA CHNG
