You may think it doesn’t matter but the importance of a fitted bra with proper coverage and an underwear can’t be stressed enough. A good bra implies good fitting of the blouse. Choose hipster-style panties and proper coverage panties over thongs. If your thighs are prone to chafing and rashes, wear tights and apply Vaseline to prevent it. Pay attention to the cup size and underwire if you are wearing a padded blouse.
