Confession: We love a good pair of plain, white, cotton undies. But, every so often — whether for a date night or just a little personal mood-booster on a rainy L.A. day — we reach for a different corner of our intimates drawer, in search of something a little bit sexy.
The problem is, finding that isn't always easy — particularly if your definition of sexy doesn't include ruffles, bows, or crotchless styles. Thankfully, when it comes to finding lingerie that's subtle, chic, and just the right amount of flirtatious, Los Angeles has us covered. Ahead, we rounded up 17 subtly sexy buys, sans raunch — or, God forbid, cheesiness — including everything from retro satin panties to an amazing toile-print bustier. Oh, and did we mention most of the pieces happen to be by L.A.-based designers? Because, there's nothing sexier than supporting local talent.
