While it seemed like a natural progression, we still couldn't quite believe it when Madewell launched their own in-house collection of lingerie. The bralettes and underwear stay true to the brand's comfortable, wearable aesthetics and we'd be lying if we said we hadn't already added a few pieces to our online carts.
Madewell's new line got us thinking — what other brands have great lingerie and intimate collections that we might not know about? We found six other brands and stores with under-the-radar underwear lines you need to see. Shop them all below.
Comfort is the name of the game with Madewell's collection of 42 different intimate pieces. Made from custom fabrics like mesh and cotton-modal, these bras and undies are so soft and stretchy you'll probably want to sleep in them.
Madewell 'Eliza' bralette, $28, Madewell
Madewell lace boyshorts, $15, Madewell
Madewell cotton-modal bikini briefs, $13, Madewell
