I'm a strong believer in wearing pretty lingerie for the same reason I believe in maintaining my pedicure regimen during boot season: Just because no one is going to see it doesn't mean it should look like a total mess. It's about feeling confident more than anything because frankly, there's nothing more distracting or uncomfortable than an itchy, ill-fitting bra. I tend to replace my selection fairly often since bras stretch out after a few months (it's a sad, sad truth), so I'm currently eyeing all of these gorgeous options that are under $50. Shop my top picks below, from the best everyday T-shirt bra to a slightly impractical but super-sexy lace number.
