Despite what some may tell you, white undergarments are not the best pick underneath white clothing. Instead, you should wear nude or flesh-toned underwear if you don’t want anything showing through semi-sheer or light fabrics this summer.
A few years ago, the fashion industry was under the impression that there was only one shade of nude: A very light shade of tan or beige. Luckily, brands have come a long way and now most offer a range of nude shades to complement many different skin tones.
If you want to rock white clothing with confidence this summer — and without worrying about your bra or underwear showing through — add the nude undergarments under $20 below to your lingerie drawer ASAP. They’re all affordable, comfortable and versatile enough to wear on heavy rotation during the summer months and beyond.
