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 if it’s a bra that’s comfy and does it’s job! For knickers, 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
