As a Valentine’s Day special request, I am discussing how to organize lingerie. This is a popular gift, but these small articles of clothing can easily be forgotten if not organized and stored properly.
Tips to Organizing Your Lingerie
Sort through all of your lingerie, bras and underwear and edit out items that no longer fit, are worn out or not your style anymore.
Sort Lingerie by Type
Sort clothing by category such as hosiery, underwear, sports bras, everyday wear, special occasion wear, sleepwear, slips, camisoles, etc.
Determine Storage for Each Category
Decide where you’d like to store these items for the easiest access based on the layout of your room. You may want to store lingerie items in dresser drawers, in lingerie chests, in fabric bins on closet shelves, in under-bed boxes, or hanging in closets.
Buy the Right Organizing Products for Your Lingerie
Once you’ve determined where you’ll be storing each type of lingerie, buy the right storage products. For example, you may want:
Honeycomb drawer dividers (great for panties or hosiery)
Small baskets or bins, just the right fit for your closet shelving
Other Lingerie Organizing Ideas
In drawers or bins, lie bras within each other, so you can see everything at a glance.
Organize by color to make it easier to find the exact color you’re looking for that day.
Keep matching sets together. Whether in the same drawer or box, or on the same hanger, keeping sets together will save you time searching through your collection.
Use lingerie bags for washing, this helps care for the lingerie, and it saves you time when putting away clothing.
