Lingerie is an essential part of your everyday wardrobe, from work, to the gym and every special occasion you attend, and with the power to make you look and feel amazing, the affect of a good fitting bra in undeniable. Yet, it seems, the lingerie wardrobe is one which is overlook and neglected by many.

Building your lingerie collection is just as important, if not more so, than compiling your clothing wardrobe and just as your apparel needs an occasion "sort throught and throw away" session, so does your underwear. A bra that is worn for many months, or even years, is not going to give the same desired effects - support and a great lift - as a brand new one. So, if it's time to re-vamp your lingerie draw, here's the 5 essential, must-have items, every woman should own.

1. The Everyday Bra

If you intend to splash out on any item in your lingerie collection, this should be it, because, as the name suggest, you'll wear it almost everyday. A nude or skin tone colour is extremely useful for wearing under any item of clothing...even black! When you're looking for an everyday bra, search for a style that will suit your shape and that you will feel comfortable in. Your everyday bra should reflect your lifestyle, if you work in a job for which you wear a shirt, a smooth, seamless cup would be a great choice.

2. The Multiway Bra

Once you have a multiway bra, you'll wonder what you ever did without! From halterneck to one shoulder, backless to low cut - you'll never have a lingerie dilemma again. For maximum versatility, opt for a plunge or low cut style which can be worn under any type of neckline.

3. Shapewear

A smooth, firm figure with minimal effort...yes please! The key to shape wear is identifying the area which you are conscious of, there are hundreds of different styles to choose from, whether its slimming knickers or a waist clincher - you'll have no trouble finding the perfect shaping garment for you. The best thing about shapewear? A fabulous silhouette in seconds and no one has to know! Let the compliments begin...

4. Seamless Knickers

With a few pairs of these in your knicker draw, VPL (Visible Panty Line) will be a thing of the past. New technologies mean fabric can be electronically welded together, a revoultuon in invisible underwear. It's also a great option for those not accustomed to thongs, and are fantastic under white or sheer fabric trousers or skirts.

5. A Robe

A robe is the sort of item every woman needs without realising it! Lounging around the house, carry it with you on holiday, a pamper session, after a shower...a good rode should be simple, soft and easy to throw on whenever it may be required. The fabric of the robe is entirely a personal choice, for those who love to curl up with a mug of tea and a good book, a cosy towelling robe is the ultimate in rope selections. Light silk or chiffon robes are fantastic in summer time and can even be converted in chic beach cover ups.

Most importantly of all, your essential lingerie should make you look and feel great. Fit is vital in the comfort of your lingerie, regular bra fittings ensure you are always getting the best support and lift you can. So, with these 5 items in your lingerie wardrobe you can begin to build a fabulous collection for yourself!
