6 Tips for Updating the Top Drawer of Your Dresser

Everyone has been on this Marie Kondo frenzy, but I wonder, are they updating the top drawer of their dresser at the same time? Just as you update your wardrobe when styles change and things don’t fit the way you wish they did anymore, you should update your lingerie wardrobe as well!

No matter what your excuse is, I will tell you that you should buy lingerie that fits you and that you love in your current stage of life.
