Your Ultimate Lingerie Guide: Tips, Trends, and Sizing Advice | UCALingerie

The start of a school year can cause first-day jitters, but the right bra and panties set can set that comfortable, confident mood from move-in day to graduation. Effortless everyday styles should feel so light on your skin that you can concentrate on class instead of your clothing. What about nights out? Fun, trendy styles add an instant confidence boost that will make you the life of the party while having multiple options stress-proofs your wardrobe.


Ready to properly prep for the school year? Here are some styles we recommend.

  1. Bralette: A lightweight bralette is a perfect way to bring together comfort and style for everyday wear.
  2. Sports Bra: A sports bra is vital to your workout gear. They’ll help support your back and prevent injury and sagging when you hit the gym.
  3. Push-Up Bra: A little boost from a push-up bra is the ultimate way to create a feminine silhouette under low-cut clothing.
  4. Wireless Bra: Are you looking for comfort but need more support than a bralette? Wireless bras are the way to go.
  5. Specialty Styles: Specialty bras like racerback, convertible bras, and bra tops are a great way to add versatility to your lingerie collection.
  6. Matching Sets: A matching set is a classy and confident way to start building any outfit. They’re the perfect sexy secret for nights out!

    UCA’s collections include all of these styles and more. Our women-designed, sustainable sets match comfortable materials with trendy style. Let’s take a look at some of UCA’s best college-bound styles.

    Reese is a wireless convertible bra with stretch. Unlike an underwire bra, the wireless support takes pressure off breast tissue. This makes Reese a great choice for underneath t-shirts or sweatshirts. The lightweight mesh (and matching mesh boyshort) keeps you cool on hot days or under layers.

    This style isn’t just for daytime. In addition to being ultra-comfy, the lightly lined coverage means Reese can double as a bra top. Try pairing her with high-waisted leggings and an oversized jacket for bar trivia or girls’ night!

          sage green deep plunge bra


    Pearl’s delicate floral lace combines vintage style and modern design to create a comfortable, everyday bralette. The lightweight padding adds more shape and support than a traditional bralette, and the plunging style is a great match for lower necklines. Pearl is day-to-night wear at its best!

    This bralette isn’t just about function, however. Her sexy lace style and classic blush pink color make Pearl flirty and fun. Take her out on a daytime date or keep her as a little secret, paired with the cheeky, vintage-inspired matching panty.

    light blue vintage lace panties


    Grace is your go-to girl for a night out! Alongside the matching high-waisted panty, this set offers lightweight comfort and flirty style. The removable cups take Grace from a comfy longline bralette to an all-in-one style you can wear on its own. Want to add sexy style to any look? Choose Grace. The on-trend orange color stands out on any skin tone. Dress her down with denim and a moto-jacket for a hard-meets-soft style, or take her out on the town with a form-fitting skirt.

          bright orange padded bra


    Mia is your girl if you’re looking for a more romantic style. Her breathable material is the ideal match for your favorite basics. She even has detachable padding so you can choose your level of support.

    Mia’s matching lace panty only adds to her sweet style. This full coverage hipster brings chic accents to everyday style. Wear them as a set to give yourself a little boost of confidence, whether taking a midterm or asking out your lab partner.

    pink unlined lace bra


    If you’re less about neutrals and more about bold colors, Mika is the perfect addition to your lingerie drawer. Her molded cups and underwire construction offer supportive shaping. The matching panties are made out of a lightweight, sweat-free material for extra comfort on your most stressful days. Mika also has details that help your wardrobe take flight. The butterfly-inspired racerback offers support and character that you don’t have to hide. Try Mika with an open-back top or dress that shows her unique style.

          bright orange padded bra


    Every lingerie wardrobe needs a good push-up, whether you’re looking for a dramatic lift or a small boost. Our Adah push-up bra is made of a seamless, skin-friendly material that feels effortless under v-neck tees and night-out tops. She even has convertible straps to work with any neckline! Adah’s matching tanga panty is in the same playful baby blue color in a superfine fabric that hugs your shape. Between Adah’s shapely support and her matching panty’s seamless style, creating the perfect feminine silhouette is simple and sexy.

    pink unlined lace bra


    Whether you’re hitting a downward dog on your yoga mat, hitting the pavement on a run, or hitting homers on the softball team, a sports bra is the active girl’s best friend. Faith is a supportive sports bra that’s anything but boring. The bold blue color and matching peekaboo hipster briefs take your workout looks to the next level. Faith pairs shape with style with a non-restrictive wireless design and lightweight molded cup. The contrasting band adds a little playfulness and the convertible straps make this sports bra versatile enough to pair with all your favorite workout sets.
