1. Know your size
One of the most important aspects of choosing lingerie is the size. Lingerie that is
a poor fit can cause discomfort and a weird appearance under clothes. One of the

tape measure and compare them to a size chart, or visit a department store to
help size you when you are buying lingerie.
