They say it's what's inside that counts, but to your outfit, it's what's underneath. Whether you're wearing an evening dress or your favourite tracksuit, a good pair of knickers will have you feeling fabulous all over.

Finding the right pair of knickers

Whatever you're wearing, a great pair of knickers can make all the difference to how you feel. Sheer satin and silk knickers are a luxurious option underneath a designer evening dress, while lacy french knickers are elegant with a balconette bra under workwear. Thongs are perfect to wear with figure-hugging outfits such as pencil skirts and bodycon dresses. Try a cotton thong for every day, or opt for a lace string if you want the seduction factor. French knickers are an alternative to wear underneath close fitting skirts or trousers, choose a pair with a scalloped lace finish so it doesn't create a visible panty line underneath your outfit.

Comfort in knickers

If you're all about the comfort, make sure you're cosy to the core with some casual knickers. Choose a pair in cotton for a comfortable fit, and go for full-bottomed briefs if you want something that's easy to wear. Pick a thick waistband for extra comfort around the hips, and look out for printed logos and brand names for that sporty touch. Boy shorts will add to the androgynous look of the season. Choose some shorties or Y-fronts for a playful edge, or go for boxer shorts that will look great with a t-shirt at bedtime. If you prefer the feminine silhouette, choose some high waisted knickers to create a flattering but sultry shape.
