When thinking of spring, the words that come to mind are cleanliness and regeneration.

Cleaning in spring was aptly named spring cleaning for this very reason.

Now take a good look at your lingerie drawer and ask yourself if each piece makes you feel beautiful, and if you'd want someone else to see you wear it.

If not, it's time to say goodbye and start afresh.

Here is our guide to the essential items for your lingerie drawer, from bras that can be worn with any dress, to the invisible control knickers that make you feel as carefree as ever.

Everyday knickers

Having the days of the week on any garment will certainly keep your diary in check and these colourful knickers from Cheek Frills also call to mind that famous When Harry Met Sally scene, which can only be a good thing,

Invisible thong

The concept of a "one-size-fits-all" thong sounds alarming, until you try it out.

Seamless and endlessly stretchy, this lace version is undetectable under even the tightest dress or white jeans. You'll want one in every colour.

Playsuit

Part lingerie, part pyjamas, part beachwear, this Rio playsuit by Asceno By Beautiful Bottoms is inspired by the part of the world where having a beautiful bottom is all important, Brazil.

Sexy but comfortable nightdress

Previously the domain of the Eighties sex siren, the nightdress is making a comeback.

Beautiful enough to wear in front of your beloved, and comfortable enough for nights spent only with Netflix, this dove grey version might even make it to a party teamed with a denim jacket come summer.

Colourful bra top

Pretty enough to be glimpsed under a denim shirt or low-cut vest, the coloured bra is a universal style essential - even for those not accustomed to flashing their intimates.

Hold-up stockings

Their reputation may lean towards the sexy, but hold-ups fight for their place in your lingerie drawer by virtue of their functional value. Wearing a tight dress but not warm enough for bare legs? Hold-ups to the rescue.
