Tip #1: Edit out anything old, tattered, or uncomfortable.
“Undergarments should make you feel confident, beautiful and powerful,” said Amber Tolliver, the founder of lingerie brand Liberté, in an email. And with that in mind, there's no reason to hang on to the pieces that don't. This should also help you pare down your underwear selection to the best of the best.
Tip #2: Organize your best pieces by style.
By sorting your lingerie into sections by style, you'll be able to have a better idea of where everything is. "Your underwear drawer is the first one you open in the morning. If you reach into a crumpled chaotic mess, it’s setting your mood for the rest of your day," the founder of Evelyn & Bobbie, Bree McKeen shared.
Tip #3: Fold your pieces neatly and so that you can clearly see where everything is.
The key to maintaining your underwear drawer's organization is by folding it so you can not only see everything but also keep it from getting too disheveled. Monique Morin, the founder of her eponymous lingerie brand said, "Fold using a method that keeps your bras and underwear organized." For bras, Morin suggests keeping them open on top of each other, whereas underwear should be folded with the design visible.
