Should You Switch Up Your Underwear With The Seasons?

Should You Switch Up Your Underwear With The Seasons?

By now winter is well and truly on its way. The leaves have shifted in shades, the air is starting to snap, and our long-forgotten coats have been brought out of the recesses of our wardrobes. We might even have started using a different shade of makeup. But did you ever consider switching up your underwear for cold weather? 

Sure, it’s difficult to part with your go-to undergarments after wearing them regularly during the summer. But if you are finding your toosh is feeling a little too frosty on those increasingly chilly mornings, consider opting for a different fabric or style for winter. For example, while you might’ve been sticking to slinky styles over summer due to the lack of layers required, finding something with a bit more coverage might be a better option. 

Fabric is of the utmost importance when it comes to your smalls. At Everyday Lingerie Co, we work with the best bamboo fabric that feels breathable, yet still keeps you and your booty nice and toasty on cold days. The fibres of the fabric can pull moisture away from your body, which makes it a great choice for sweaty summer days. But did you know that it also works in reverse, as bamboo also possesses the ability to insulate warm air? This means that you’ll stay cosy through all seasons. 

Another consideration might be your choice of coverage. At ELC, we know that underwear is an individual choice, which is why we have a considered range of styles from G-string to full brief. You might be married to our G-string – and hey, the bamboo will keep you warm either way – but if you’re looking to stay a little warmer during the winter season, why not consider more coverage with one of our other styles? 

Our boyleg short cut is the perfect winter solution, as it covers the cheeks and your upper thighs. It also keeps your tummy toasty with a mid-rise waistband that will work perfectly with your winter wardrobe. You won’t be sacrificing on style either, thanks to the classic black and white colours with our signature waist trim. Oh, and did we mention they’re extremely comfy and won’t show up underneath your gym leggings? It’s a win-win-win. 

Ultimately whatever your preference, ELC has you covered with our ultra-comfy, super supportive range of Australian-made underwear. Whether you opt for our G-string, boyleg or briefs, you can rest assured your undercarriage will always stay warm and cosy in winter – no switching smalls necessary.

Sizing

Trying to find the right underwear size can be difficult due to different companies making different sizes. To make things easier we have created a step by step guide to take the guess work out of the equation.

Below we have measuring instructions with images to assist you.  

Finding your size in our Underwear Range:

All you need to do is take a couple of simple measurements; your waist, your lower waist and your hips. The best way to do this is by using a soft measuring tape and a mirror to ensure you are accurate.  If possible stand in front of a mirror when taking your measurements to ensure that the measuring tape is also parallel to the floor and is flat.

Measurement 1: Your waist

Your waist is the natural in indentation above your hips or just below your rib cage (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down.

Measurement 2: Your Lower Waist

Your lower waist is approx. 12cm down from your waist.  Take your measuring tape and run this down from your waist to 12cm (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around this area firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down.  

Measurement 3: Your hips

Now wrap the soft measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, this is approximately 25cm below your waist (see image). Use the mirror to check that your measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor – write this measurement down.

 

 

Finding your size in our Crop Top Bralette Range:

All you need to do is take a couple of simple measurements; your Full Bust and your Lower or under bust. The best way to do this is by using a soft measuring tape and a mirror to ensure you are accurate.

Measurement 1: Your Full Bust

Your Full Bust is the fullest part of your bust (see image). Ensure that the measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor. Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down

Measurement 2: Your Lower or Under Bust

The Lower or Under bust is measured by wrapping the measuring tape around your rib cage directly under your bust (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down
