Keep Your Panty Drawer Looking and Smelling Pretty!

Hey Beauties!

Every woman has that special drawer that she keeps all her delicates in, strictly for panties and bras and any other lingerie or undergarments. I absolutely love's so feminine, sexy, and comfortable! Plus, it really gets you in a certain type of mood..whether it's sexy, fun, or happy. Lingerie should make any woman feel her best! Your drawer should be a reflection of this!

So I found some cool ways to organize your panty drawers with dividers. They come in an array of shapes, sizes, colors, and materials to jazz up your space and give it some life! You can also DIY and create dividers from cardboard boxes...just wrap or cover them in your favorite material or print!

Good Housekeeping has some excellent tips on how to keep your drawers looking and smelling pretty!

To instill some undergarment order, first edit out tattered, ill-fitting, or uncomfortable items (and be honest — you know you hate wearing that scratchy lace bra). Use inexpensive drawer dividers to give everything a place. Then, group undies by type (brief, bikini, thong). Fold bras one cup into the other, so cups keep their shape and take up less space.

Make finding the right foundation for your outfits less of a scavenger hunt with specially designed boxes for bras and easy-to-customize cardboard organizers for underwear, and spring-loaded drawer dividers. The latter are perfect for sectioning off shape wear, like Spanx, from stay-in-shape wear, like sports bras and athletic socks. Trouser socks plus nylons and stockings (in snag-preventing zip-seal bags and grouped by color) fill out the drawer.

For the life of your bras, laundering by hand is best. But for those of us living in the real world, machine-washing items on cold water/delicate cycle in structured mesh zipper bags will do. Clasp bras before bagging them. Panties tend to wear out faster than bras (because of how we wear them as well as how often we wash them). So consider picking up two or three new bottoms for every new top.

Once they're out of the wash, avoid putting bras in the dryer — heat wreaks havoc on their construction. Smooth out lumps or dents in padded cups. Then, drape bras over coat hangers (or lay flat) to dry

Toss scented drawer liners and sachets whose oils can stain your lingerie. Instead, tuck in an empty bottle of your favorite perfume. Wrap it in a handkerchief to ensure that it doesn't give off anything but a hint of scent.

Toss worn-out bras. How can you be sure they're done for? Go by fit: You should start hooking the bra on the first (or loosest) hook; then move in as it stretches. If it's loose on the tightest hook — or if the straps won't stay up and can't be readjusted — it's time for a replacement. (Got the opposite problem — a new or gently worn bra you no longer want? Donate it to your local women's shelter.)

Keep at least one nude and one black bra, post-drawer purge (in total, five to seven bras should cover your wardrobe needs). Likewise, you really only need enough undies to last
