Honestly, I Buy All My Under-$20 Lingerie Here

I understand the luxury of treating yourself to expensive lingerie, but to be truly transparent, it's rare that I spend over $20 on underwear. Mostly because of the fact that there are actually plenty of brands making cute (and comfortable) bras and underwear at refreshingly affordable prices. My personal favorite is Aerie, where I've been buying underwear literally since high school and continue to almost a decade later. I find its underwear to be so comfortable that I often just forget about them all together. As it turns out, cheap lingerie doesn't have to look or feel cheap—in fact, it can be quite luxurious.

To prove it, I've rounded up the affordable underwear brands I love, starting with Aerie but also including a few other $20-and-under favorites. With options that range from comfortable cotton briefs (because we all need to prioritize comfort every once in a while) to romantic, lacy styles, you'll find a little something intimate to add to your underwear drawer. Read on to shop them all now.

Topshop may be better known for the statement pieces you show off, but as it turns out, it's a great place to shop for affordable underwear too. From lacy to sporty, it runs the gamut.

It should come as no surprise that Uniqlo is a winner in the comfort department. Its affordable lightweight bras and underwear are pieces you can wear all day without even noticing they're there.

Madewell does great denim, but its underwear and bras are pretty darn awesome too. Minimalist and romantic, they're the comfy pieces you'll want to lounge around the house in (and cancel all your plans).
