Why You Should Never Buy Cheap Lingerie

  • 2 min read

It’s the age-old dilemma: you need bras and underwear, but don’t want to feel like you’re spending an arm and a leg on new lingerie. We get it. We love scoring a good discount, too. But going so far to save money on lingerie can come at a cost. In the short-term, saving money is great. Long-term, though, you’ll end up with a top drawer filled with pieces you won’t want to wear.

Here’s why you should never buy cheap lingerie:

You should only buy lingerie that you love

Lingerie is special. And we’re not just saying that because we’re lingerie fanatics.

Bras, panties, slips, and bodysuits are the most intimates pieces you wear on a near daily basis. And if you don’t love what you’re wearing, what’s the point of owning it? If you’re buying lingerie just because it’s cheap, chances are, it’s never going to leave your drawer.

Shop mindfully and reach for the pieces that (1) stick out to you and (2) you know you’ll wear again and again.

Cheap fabrics are harsh on the skin

The quality of your lingerie’s fabric matters. In general, you’ll want to avoid cheap fabrics because they can irritate or even scratch your skin.

High-quality lingerie doesn’t just feel better on your skin. It’s better for your skin. Lingerie touches the most sensitive and vulnerable parts of your body. Exposing yourself to over-processed, harsh fabrics isn’t worth the risk—or your money, for that matter.

Cheap lingerie doesn’t last

Low-quality fabrics are prone to snapping, ripping, and losing elasticity. You’ll only get a handful of uses out of the lingerie, and have to buy new pieces more frequently, which eventually adds up.

Plus, depending on the dye quality of the piece, the color can stain your clothing or fade in the wash.

Lingerie should feel good

Lingerie is the first thing you put on and the last thing you take off every single day. Your bras and underwear are the closest things to your skin all day and night. If they’re uncomfortable, then you’re going to be uncomfortable.

What you wear makes a world of difference in how you feel. So if you’re constantly tugging at tight, itchy fabrics, you’re going to feel irritated. You’ll only feel relief when you take it all off.
