I'm Obsessed With Zara's & Mango's Lingerie—Yes, I've Tried the Fancy Brands Too



I've tried nearly every major lingerie brand out there by way of my job, testing each of them out at least once so as to be able to give truthful advice around which ones are really worth buying and which ones you can rightfully pass on. And while there are certainly luxury lingerie brands that, if you're in the market for a gorgeous silk or lace piece, merit a purchase, spending a ton of money on lingerie isn't your only option. In fact, there are two brands that can get you that same look for a whole lot less. 

After a fair share of trial and error, I discovered that really, my two favorite lingerie brands when I'm trying to stay on budget are Zara and Mango, neither of which get enough credit for their selections. Both only recently started emphasizing the sartorial genre, which could perhaps be why they're often slept on. But personally, I'm obsessed. From bras and panties to slip dresses and elevated pajama sets, keep scrolling to shop my go-tos for lingerie that, despite looking extremely expensive, won't cost you a pretty penny. 

Bras & Panties

Any good lingerie collection starts with the classics.

Shop the matching Sheer Fabric Thong ($20).

Good strapless bras are hard to come by. Don't pass this one up. 

This set could go for way more than this. 

Shop the matching Lace Panty ($20).

This set is simply stunning.

Shop the matching Classic Lace Panties ($36).

Me? I'm obsessed.

Shop the matching Cut Out Bottoms ($23).

This color is almost too good to be true. Emphasis on the word almost. 

Shop the matching Silk Thong ($36).

I love underwires but dislike padding, which makes this bra perfect.

Tasteful sequins are hard to come by, but this set is exactly that. 

Shop the matching Classic Lace Panties ($30).

Goth-girl summer is here.


Though this is sleepwear, it could easily double as a wardrobe basic. 

Baby pink will always be a lingerie favorite. 

A glittery take on sleepwear. 

Shop the matching Shiny Knit Shorts ($30).

This French-inspired set is a definite yes if you ask me.

Shop the matching Cotton-Blend Pajama Shorts ($26).

Give me a sheer, pink set for every day of the week.

Shop the matching Semi-Sheer Top ($28) and Semi-Sheer Shorts ($40).

*Buys one for every member of my family.*

Shop the matching Satin Pajama Pants ($50).

These cotton boxers would be so cute with sneakers and a button-down shirt.

If I didn't know better, I'd think this slip was $500 or more. 

Zara's bridal lingerie line is actually so gorgeous. 

Bodysuits and Corsets

Pair this with jeans for a stylish and on-trend look for summer. 

This shade was all over the F/W 22 runways. 

Shop the matching Semi-Sheer Thong ($36).
