I've Tried Over 15 Lingerie Trends—These Are the Ones I Swear By

Let me try to read your mind… What even is a lingerie trend, and why has this girl tried over 15 of them? Close? To that, I say fair point, but let me explain. I love lingerie. Ever since I witnessed Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl wearing some of the most stunning corsets, matching sets, and garter belts underneath her everyday clothes, I've been intrigued by the notion of it all. Do "normal" folks (aka not fictional characters) wear lingerie that gorgeous in place of the random, probably way-too-old-to-still-be-in-my-underwear-drawer items I was wearing instead? The answer is yes.

After talking to many lingerie experts throughout my time here at Who What Wear, testing a large handful of styles out for a little lingerie challenge I set for myself, and being a die-hard lingerie fanatic, I have officially tried over 15 lingerie trends IRL. I will admit a lot of them did not land, including underwear that basically has no back (yeah, I know), shimmer lingerie (my clothes had glitter all over them for weeks), and a few others I'd rather not talk about. As far as the ones that did stick, though, they've been sticking with me for years, and I can't imagine what my lingerie life would be like without them.

Ahead, find out which, out of 15, lingerie trends are my official favorites, plus shop pieces I'm loving from each trend category.
