We never need an excuse to shop for lingerie, meaning now’s a perfect time to treat yourself to a sexy new bra and matching thong or to stock up on comfy cotton undies. But when it comes to buying lingerie, you may not know where to start — there are so many different brands and styles on the market today. So to streamline your shopping experience, we turned to a few of our favorite celebrities for some undergarment inspo. From logo-adorned cotton Calvin Klein underwear to luxurious French lace bralettes from La Perla, we picked out a handful of the best lingerie brands that A-listers have been wearing for years.

We’ve also included some newly launched lines that are already proving to be forces within the fashion industry, like Kim Kardashian West’s Skims shapewear collection and Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty label. These collections are pushing the boundaries of size inclusivity and redefining what it means to be “sexy” — and given the huge fan bases they’ve gained, they’re clearly doing something right. What’s more, both brands are actually affordable and can be found at two of our favorite retailers; Skims recently launched at Nordstrom after months of anticipation, and you can shop Savage x Fenty on Amazon.

New launches aside, there are plenty of other fashionable lingerie, underwear, and shapewear brands with large celebrity followings, including classics like Intimissimi, Spanx, and Hanky Panky. No matter what you’re in the market for, these star-approved brands are fun to treat yourself to any time of the year.

We love that Skims is more size inclusive, offering shapewear from XXS to 5XL.

Here are the 12 best lingerie brands for 2020:


Kim Kardashian West’s inclusive shapewear brand may have just launched last year, but stars like Ashley Graham, Selena Gomez, and Chrissy Teigen have already expressed their love for it. The fashion mogul’s line includes solution-focused shapewear, underwear, and accessories, plus, the entire collection comes in sizes XXS to 5XL and nine different shades of nude (and counting). With prices ranging from $18 to $98, shoppers can choose from sculpting bodysuits, shorts, underwear, and body tape, with more styles expected to launch as the brand continues to grow — and now you can shop it at Nordstrom.

Spanx shapewear is a red carpet staple and the OG name behind sculpting undergarments. Stars like Khloe Kardashian, Mindy Kaling, Jenna Dewan, and Karlie Kloss (just to name a few!) have been fans of the brand for years — and for good reason. Besides offering up sculpting shorts, bodysuits, and slips, Spanx now also has an entire line of activewear — including the Booty Boost leggings that Jennifer Garner loves and the ultra popular faux leather leggings — plus bras and underwear that are made with the same technology used in its shapewear, but designed for everyday wear.

Gooseberry Intimates

Supermodels like Kendall Jenner, Kaia Gerber, and Taylor Hill have been longtime fans of Gooseberry Intimates’ barely-there one-piece swimsuit, but the French brand originally started as a go-to for sexy, delicate lingerie. Khloe Kardashian has worn the brand’s lacy bodysuits for years, and supermodel Joan Smalls has been spotted in its super cute pink leopard-print bra and matching pajama top.

La Perla

Looking to splurge on some of the most elegant, beautifully made lingerie? You’ll love luxury Italian intimates brand, La Perla. Kourtney Kardashian has been spotted wearing its Mosaic Motif Underwire Bra, Priyanka Chopra was seen sporting its Second Skin Bodysuit, and Kendall Jenner (who was previously the face of the brand) has worn everything from nude-colored bodysuits to her 2017 Met Gala La Perla Haute Couture gown. Though some of La Perla’s lingerie, sleepwear, and swimwear styles do come with a celebrity-worthy price tag, it uses the highest-quality silk, lace, and tulle to create delicate and lavish designs that are sure to last for years (with the proper care, of course).

Savage x Fenty

When it comes to size-inclusive, playful, and affordable lingerie, Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty takes the cake. Stars such as Cara Delevingne, Bella and Gigi Hadid, and the brand’s first-ever ambassador, Normani, have all appeared in its fashion shows. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna even showed off her dance moves in a Savage x Fenty black lace lingerie set. Needless to say, RiRi’s eye for sexy and ultra-flattering underwear knows no limits. Bonus: You can shop the entire line at Amazon.

Calvin Klein Underwear

Calvin Klein Underwear has tapped supermodels, professional athletes, musicians, and famous families like the Kar-Jenners to front its #MYCALVINS campaigns over the years. Most recently, Naomi Campbell, Bella Hadid, Odell Beckham Jr., and Euphoria star Jacob Elordi were featured in the brand’s ad campaign. So why are stars so eager to rep the line? Probably because it’s the go-to brand for underwear drawer staples — including soft cotton t-shirt bras and underwear with the iconic Calvin Klein-branded waistbands — that are the epitome of cute, classic, and comfortable.

Good American

Khloe Kardashian’s Good American may have started off as a size-inclusive, solutions-focused denim brand, but since its launch in 2016, it’s grown to encompass everything from jeans and bodysuits to activewear and jackets. And one of the newest additions to the Good American lineup is the Active Intimates collection. Featuring bras and underwear designed for three different impact levels, this collection provides support, coverage, and comfort for any type of workout. Not only that, but the pieces are so cute, they can double as lingerie.

Fleur du Mal

Stylish stars like Victoria Beckham, Dakota Johnson, and Gigi and Bella Hadid have been spotted wearing bras, bodysuits, pajamas, and lingerie-inspired pieces from Fleur du Mal. The New York City-based brand is known for its beautifully detailed lace bras and luxurious silk lingerie, and more recently, its complete range of swimwear and ready-to-wear pieces. Styles range anywhere from $32 to upwards of $350, but thanks to its quality fabrics and ultra-flattering designs, you can consider Fleur du Mal’s pieces a worthy investment.
