A GOOD FOUNDATION: 4 INTIMATES YOU SHOULD OWN

We women are master magicians. With a slight of hand we can hide, conceal, change and conform just about anything on our bodies. Unfortunately, some or our sisters are unaware of just what to keep in their bag of fashion tricks (you know you all have a friend with lumps and bumps peeking out from under her clothes!). Here, a list of 4 must have intimates you need in your closet...now!

1. Full Slip: And not the kind of slip you wore as a child. We're talking a completely grown up piece that's sexy and slinky and fits your body like a glove.
Clover Canyon Neoprene Dress, $178 (sale),  Net-a-Porter.com | Spanx Slimplicity Lingerie-Strap Slip, $78, Spanx.com


2. Multiway Bra: Stop sticking one side of your bra strap in your cups. It's tacky! A convertible bra is a great investment, as it can be worn strapless, one-sided or as a halter.
Asymmetric Top, $60, Zara.com | Donna Karan Multiway Strapless Bra, $58, Couture.Zappos.com

3. Seamless Thong: Preferably in nude or black. Wear these with your skinny jeans and you'll completely forget you're wearing any underwear at all.
J Brand Midrise Skinny Jean, $172 (also available at Nordstrom Rack and Saks Off Fifth for less!!), NeimanMarcus.com | Hanky Panky Nude Seamless Thongs, $22, Hankyhttp://www.hankypanky.com/BARE-Eve-Natural-Rise-ThongPanky.com 


4. Nipple Covers: If you're like me, then you can attest to this embarrassing condition whenever the slightest breeze graces your chest. For the fortunate few who can go bra-less, these nipple covers are great for those popular sheer panel tops and dresses. Keeps the peepshow to a minimum.

  2. Thank you! It is our duty as women to share this with our sisters, girlfriends, et al. No woman should go out looking like she's hiding a sack of nickles in her pants.

  3. I'm definitely guilty of tucking one bra strap! LOL! This was super helpful.
