Spring Cleaning For Your Lingerie Drawer - What To Keep, What To Toss
It's officially spring, which means it's time for spring cleaning. Last time we wrote about spring cleaning for your lingerie drawer, we went through item by item, which is a good place to start. But if you still have lingerie that you are unsure about, here are a few more rules on what to keep and what to toss.
Anything that you don't completely love - This excludes basic pieces like a nude T-shirt bra and shapewear (because, let's face it, there's not much excitement there). But outside of that, if you have a piece of lingerie that you don't wear because you're just not that into it, it's time to let it go.
Anything that's not pretty, practical or sentimental - If you hardly wear it but you LOVE it, then keep it. If it's not that pretty but it's a piece that you get a lot of use out of, keep it. If it's a piece that you just can't get rid of because it was the first lingerie you bought for yourself or it was what you wore for your first time, then keep it. Anything else, toss it out.
Anything that's not your style - We know that a women's tastes ebb and flow over the years, and sometimes you pull something out of your drawer that you haven't touched in years and suddenly you love it again. But if there's a piece you've pulled out, and then put right back, again and again you should just go ahead and give it up. The only exception would be for lingerie that's extremely rare, such as a vintage piece or a limited edition style.
Once you've cleared out some space, you have our permission to do some lingerie shopping to and fill that drawer back up again! ;-) Do you have any more lingerie spring cleaning tips to share? Be sure to leave them in the comments section!
