How to Store LingerieNothing beats sexy lingerie when it comes to bedroom seduction, but after the first wear it's easy to throw everything in one drawer and forget about it, only to be met with a bundle of tangled stockings and bras next time you want to dress up.

If you've taken the time to hand wash and dry your sexy underwear, it's a good idea to spend an extra couple of minutes putting it away properly, too.

In fact, you can extend the life of your lingerie with a few tweaks to how you store your pieces.

Our lingerie expert Gemma has outlined some easy ways to sort and store your lingerie below so you can keep your favourite pieces ready for action at a moment's notice!

1. Line Your Drawers

If you like to fold your lingerie, try lining your underwear draw with some scented tissue paper. Not only will it keep everything smelling fresh and prevent snagging, you can also invest in some more seductive scents (like, sandalwood or jasmine) as an added tease for your lover. Maybe spray a little of your favourite perfume, too, for that personal touch that your partner will adore.

2. Lingerie Bags

3. Hang It Up

It seems obvious, but hanging your sexy lingerie keeps it crease-free and looking like new. If the material is particularly delicate (silk, chiffon or satin), try using padded hangers as an alternative to your usual plastic ones. This is particularly useful for longer pieces like babydolls and chemises.
