During lockdown, there was a moment at which wearing a bra suddenly became as strange as wearing a pair of crotchless knickers. With no one around to impress - let alone seduce - the concept of lingerie seemed pointless. But as support bubbles get bigger and social distancing guidelines decrease from two metres to one, what you wear beneath your clothes - if you ever cared in the first place - may begin to matter again. Underwear, however, is more than just what you wear beneath your clothes. The right bra and briefs can give you as much comfort and support as the compliments and advice of a group of unfamiliar women in a club toilet. Mostly, lingerie is exciting. It’s exciting to look at. It’s exciting to try on. It’s exciting to show off. Ultimately, it’s the perfect antidote to the boredom of lockdown. Here’s to wearing it anywhere but a locked room on Houseparty.
