SPRING has sprung, turning thoughts to cleansing and regeneration. Take a good look at your lingerie drawer and ask yourself if each piece makes you feel beautiful, and if you'd want someone else to see you wear it. If not, it's time to say goodbye and start afresh. Here is our guide to the essential items for your lingerie drawer - from bras that can be worn with any dress, to the invisible control knickers that make you feel as carefree as a spring lamb.
Having the days of the week on any garment will certainly keep your diary in check and these colourful knickers from Cheek Frills also call to mind that famous When Harry Met Sally scene, which can only be a good thing, £70 for the set from FullDisclosureLuxe.com
Colourful Bra Top
Pretty enough to be glimpsed under a denim shirt or low-cut vest, the coloured bra is a universal style essential - even for those not accustomed to flashing their intimates. Available in sizes up to FF, this version comes in a range of colours, £42 at Passionata.com
Everyone needs a smooth bra that appears almost invisible under a tight jumper or top and this one comes in colours that veer away from the traditional black or nude, £30 at VictoriasSecret.com
