Does your top drawer need a pick-me-up? If you're nodding your head, the arrival of the Madewell x LIVELY collab may be the key to giving your undergarment collection the refresh it needs for the new season. The intimates brand and the fashion-girl favorite retailer have joined forces to create a collection that's both feminine and playful. Even better? The pieces are all wallet-friendly, so you won't have to spend a fortune to add to your lineup of bras and undies.
Available as of Aug. 20 on both Madewell.com and WearLively.com, this collaboration brings together some of LIVELY's most beloved fits with Madewell's exclusive colors and prints. The result? A 17-piece collection of bras and underwear that's equal parts stylish and comfortable. And, considering prices go from just $10 to $35, you can plan on snagging quite a few items for under $100.
When it comes to the offering of bras, you'll find a mix of styles in three autumn-ready hues called "Sweet Dahlia," "Burnished Mahogany," and "Asparagus," as well as two silhouettes — the Bandeau Strapless Bra, $35, and the Mesh-Trim No-Wire Bra, $35 — in a dark floral print. The latter style's front-adjusting straps and wireless cups will provide a custom and supportive fit, while the bandeau comes with removable padding so you can choose what's most comfortable for you.
If you prefer a solid over a print, both of the previously mentioned styles are available in the "Burnished Mahogany" colorway, too. Other silhouettes up for grabs in solid shades? The easy-to-wear Stripe-Mesh Bralette, $35, as well as the $35 T-Shirt Bra — an everyday style with lace detailing on the straps (which by the way, can be converted into a racerback thanks to a handy J-hook).
For those hunting for a more supportive bralette, the final style in the group may be exactly what you've been looking for. Ringing in for $35, the Stripe-Mesh Busty Bralette is made specially for DD cups and above, and incorporates wider straps and an inner sling to give you the support you need without compromising on style.
Once you select your bras, match them up with one of the undies offered in the collection. Those who prefer a thong will gravitate toward the low-rise No Show Thong offered in both the burgundy hue as well as the flowery print for $10. But, if you like a little more coverage, opt for the Mesh-Back Bikini for $10 a pair.
Continue on to add a few new underthings from this collaboration to your drawer before fall arrives.
