The Only 17 Pieces You'll Ever Truly Need in Your Underwear Drawer
We all own items we rarely wear: that dress we just had to have before a big night out, the bag our mom got us two birthdays ago, etc. But the drawer that could really use a major overhaul? The one that holds our underwear. We tend to hold onto pieces "just in case," anticipating events that never happen. In reality, however, there are only 17 types of undergarments — that's bras, panties, and shapewear included — a woman will ever truly need.
Read on for our ultimate undies guide, then stock up on what you're missing and ditch the rest.
