We're suckers for satin and lace, but during a cold snap, skimpy lingerie doesn't stand a chance. Here, our five favorite basic underwear lines that can stand up to heavy, cold-weather wear without sacrificing sex appeal.
Ten Undies: Former costume designer Daphne Javitch set out to make herself the perfect pair of bikini-cut undies and ended up creating Ten. Javitch has since expanded the line to include a high-waisted briefs, boy cut shorts, and bralettes, but doesn’t stray from her original formula of USA-made Italian fabrics.

They created a cotton, high-waisted pair of boxers that promises to be the ideal companion under midi-length skirts. Bonus: their smocked bra can convert to a crop top when you’re feel like a night out. (Source: Wood Wood)Base Range: Organic and sustainable don’t have to mean granola. Base Range’s line of undies and bras are just about the sexiest things around, cut into sporty tomboy-approved shapes.

We’re devout fans of their bra section, devoted to stocking every shape imaginable, from nude strapless underwires to a genius racerback whose inch-thick straps won’t be cutting into anything.

Commando: Full coverage doesn’t have to mean you’re flashing the whole office an embarrassing panty line. Stock up on these stretch microfiber bottoms that boast invisible edges to smooth your derriere down there, and muffin top up there. (Source: Commando)
