Once upon a time, a little-known brand known for its push-up bras and pink-striped walls ruled the lingerie world. It wasn't inclusive, it wasn't diverse, but it was all we had. Lingerie brands have come a long, long way. While that specific brand (you know the one) has made some strides, it's been toppled as the ruler of lingerie land. Now, a slew of lingerie brands have come forth, giving us more inclusive, more diverse, and more comfortable lingerie to shop. Because, no—not everyone has a beige skin tone, nor does everyone want to wear a spaghetti noodle for a thong or fit into a 34B cup.

We've scoured the internet and tested a ton of bras, undies, bustiers—you name it. The verdict is in: lingerie is better—waaay better—and more body-positive than before. There really is a style, color, and size for every person and occasion. Below, the 25 best lingerie brands to shop right now.

The best, most comfortable lingerie brands

ThirdLove

The DTC brand has made waves for good reason. Using measurements from millions of real, authentic people, ThirdLove creates inclusive bras and bralettes in more than 80 sizes, including half-cups. Say goodbye to spilling, rubbing, and adjusting—with ThirdLove, you can find your true, perfect fit at an affordable price.

Our pick: 

ThirdLove 24/7 T-Shirt Bra — $65.00

The bra that started it all is made from airy memory foam that cushions the contours of the body in A-I sizes. While other T-shirt bras gap or pucker, this one stays seamless, no matter what you wear.

Cuup

Fan of the simple, "I'm wearing underwear so minimalist it makes it even more sexy," look? Get Cuup. Its lingerie is about as minimalist as you can get for silhouettes that are equally stunning and supportive in A-H sizes. Even fabrics you think wouldn't support you—like sheer mesh and soft modal—get the job done and feel amazing.

Our pick: 

Cuup The Plunge Mesh Bra — $68.00

Light but sturdy, simple but elegant, the Plunge bra really has it all. Paired with a matching set of highwaist undies, and you’re sure to feel like a buxom starlet while you wear.

Negative

As its tagline suggests, Negative makes underwear you want to live in. Really. The brand prioritizes comfort and function in its products, using only the essentials to create dreamy bras, undies, and pajamas. There's no lace, no padding, no wiring—negative frills for a positive fit and feel.

Our pick: 

Negative Whipped Triangle Bra — $60.00

If the feeling of whipped heavy cream could be captured and turned into a fabric, it would be this bra. It’s buttery soft, feeling plush and luxurious while it supports you. The bra is great, but we want the entire whipped collection, TBH.

Harper Wilde

Harper Wilde is another go-to for great lingerie at an even greater price. From delicate bras to cozy sleep shorts, the brand has seriously comfy products with a great mission—it donates 1 percent of proceeds to Girls, Inc., a mentorship program for girls ages 6-18 that's dedicated to lifting up our future ladies, if you will.

Our pick:

The Move is Harper Wilde’s low-impact, silky soft sports bra that has it all—sweat-wicking fabric, compression coverage, and pockets for storing keys, cards, and other personals. Stock up with the Orchard Bundle, which includes three sports bras in stunning new colors like mauve, orange, and lime green.

Nubian Skin

Nubian Skin is a London-based lingerie and hosiery brand that goes beyond beige with an inclusive product line designed specifically for women of color. This isn't your grandmother's nude undergarments—Nubian Skin's products are gorgeously designed, giving to meaning to the word "second skin."

Our pick:

Nubian Skin Naked Bra — $53.00
