7 Reasons Why You Should Clean Out Your Lingerie Drawer Today
You’ve cheered as the clock struck midnight and had your new year’s kiss, so what do you need to do next? Well, why not kick off this new year by making some positive changes in your home and, more precisely, your lingerie drawer?
Here’s why it’s the perfect time to tidy up that drawer and make sure that it’s more organized than ever:
Your lingerie needs room to breathe
Here’s a little-known secret that we’re happy to let you in on: Lingerie needs room to breathe! When storing your quality bras and briefs, you need to make sure that they have the right amount of space. If you happen to be guilty of packing these items tightly into a small space, you’re making a grave mistake! Take a look at the current state of your lingerie drawer and be honest with yourself. Is it time that you had a real clear out?
You can make your lingerie last longer
When you invest in some fancy pieces of lingerie, you want them to stand the test of time. This is especially true if you happen to adore the sets that you have at the moment. So, with that in mind, you want to do everything you can to make your bras last longer. This may be something that has never even crossed your mind, but it’s vitally important.
While you may not realize it at first, storing your lingerie in an organized way could mean that the pieces last longer. For one thing, it means that the material won’t be stressed out by the pressure of being shoved in a small space. You will also find that things, such as the bone and band, will be kept in much better condition too.
Decluttering is good for your well-being
Decluttering isn’t only great for your lifestyle, it also impacts your mind. The truth of the matter is that your physical environment often impacts your mental well-being. For instance, if your home is always messy and untidy, you may find that trying to relax on the sofa is more difficult that it ought to be. Similarly, if you have a sparklingly clean abode, it’s likely to be super simple to unwind after a long day at work.
There’s no reason that this logic shouldn’t apply to the likes of your lingerie drawer as well. When you pull that drawer out and it’s filled to the brim with old and often unused clothing, it’s sure to have an impact on how you feel. So, tidying up and sorting out the space really is a no-brainer here.

You can (and should) get rid of old, worn items
Let’s face it – we all tend to hold onto things much longer than we should. If you’re guilty of *gasp* hoarding old items, you really need to think about clearing out your drawer. It’s completely illogical to keep old, worn out items that you are never going to use or wear again. Doing so only makes your drawer look more cluttered than it needs to be and has a negative effect on how you feel when you open it.
To solve this very problem, take each item out of the drawer one piece at a time. Take a look at it. Question whether it’s still the right size, whether it’s in decent condition, and crucially whether you still wear it. The answers to these questions will help you figure out whether you need to get rid of the item or keep it. Simple.
And those items that you just don’t love
Oh, and by the way, it’s not just items that are old which you should be saying goodbye to here. If you have bras or briefs that you simply don’t wear because you don’t love them, you don’t need to hold onto them. Whether they were misguided gifts or just impulse buys, if you’re not going to wear them, you shouldn’t keep them. It’s that simple. If they are decent quality, though, don’t throw them out. You can donate your bras instead.
It will make getting ready easier than ever
Once you’ve gone ahead and tidied up your drawer, it will completely change the way you feeling about getting dressed. If you’ve managed to put various types of lingerie in different sections – everyday to fancy wear – getting ready will be ultra easy. That means no more searching through your drawer to find your fave t-shirt bra; it will be just where you left it. There’s a whole lot to be said for good organization from time to time.
The new year is a truly great time to get organized and sort out those tasks that you may have been putting off for quite some time. Starting 2018 off right means taking the time to get on top of all those things. Organizing your lingerie drawer is not only a great move for your clothing, but it also means that you will feel freer and happier when it comes to getting dressed each morning! It really is a win-win situation.
