I'm SO doing this! How to organize and fold clothing, especially socks and underwear, using the KonMari Method. SO MUCH EASIER and neater than before!

Yup, we’re going there. If you’ve been following along on our KonMari challenge, we just finished up our socks and now it’s time to fold and organize our underwear drawer– bras, underwear, panties, and other lingerie. Storing them properly not only looks great, it makes finding what you need a cinch. Also, properly storing bras allows them to keep their shape which is REALLY important when they’re the foundation of your wardrobe, am I right?!

I’m going to jump right in before I lose my nerve. In my sock and lingerie drawer, I use these plastic hexagon organizers to store my rolled socks and unmentionables.

The hexagon organizer is not needed but I love how it looks and it makes me happy each morning while I reach for my undergarments. Yes, I’m pretending it’s 1942 and they are called unmentionables and undergarments.Β  I’m too modest to demonstrate the way I fold and roll my panties (unlike here where I demonstrated how to fold socks) but here’s how to do it, in words:

  • fold in each side
  • roll
  • place stacked next to each other or in the hexagon organizer as pictured above

I do this with my socks, too. Those big ones are my absolute favorite over-the-knee boot socks (they are currently on sale for 50% off, get all of them!!! I have three pairs!)

I’d share my method for folding boxers but my husband drew the line there. Socks are one thing, his boxers and briefs are another. Here’s my method: I fold them in half and then roll them so their bands are towards the top. Looks much neater and makes things easier to find!

As for bras, they need to be stored flat to keep their shape. I learned this lesson while shopping at Soma and the sales person yelled at me when I went to fold my purchase at the register. She schooled me in bra storage– always store them flat and stacked on one another. Think about how they look in the store, laid out of tables. This way, the cups always stay in shape and nothing gets bent, stretched or puckered. Which means your silhouette when wearing them doesn’t get bent, stretched, or puckered, either. πŸ˜‰

Yes, I paid a stock image service for this photo since I didn’t want to put my bras on the internet. Rolled underwear is one thing, my ridiculously sized bras are another. πŸ˜‰ Still, it demonstrates how to best store your bras. They take up more room but I’ve found it works well to simply stack them on top of one another and tuck the back closure underneath. Remember too that if you’ve properly discarded your old and outdated bras, you probably only have a few great ones left which saves space too. Plus now my dresser drawers feel like a fancy store and my bras last way longer!

Speaking of bras, I highly recommend getting professionally fitted. If you are looking for a sports bra recommendation, as someone with a large chest I HAVE to give a shout-out to the Panache Wireless Sports Bra. These are the only ones that seem to work for me and are well worth the investment to workout comfortably.

There you have it, how to organize panties, bras, and underwear– oh my! I tried to include several ‘pinnable’ images to best match your needs so you can save them and come back if needed. See you next week when we move onto BOOKS (dun, dun, dunnnnnnnnnnn).
