Mentioning Unmentionables

unmentionablesJune isn’t a month typically laden with sales.  There are only a few non-food items that get marked down predictably every year.  Dishes go on sale as shoppers hit the stores to fulfill wedding registries.  Tools go on sale to boost Father’s Day Sales. Whether they are tied to Father’s Day or not, certain unmentionables go on sale, too.  This month, women’s bras, panties, shapewear, and sleepwear all see a significant dip in prices thanks to semi-annual sales, making June a great time to stock up.

While you’re likely to see these sales everywhere, here are our top three favorites:


Macy’s is running their Extra Summer Savings Sale, with great opportunities to shop for less.  They are running a BOGO 50% off sale on bras (with the contingency that the second bra must be of equal or lesser value,) and select styles of panties are on sale for 3 for $23.99.  Plus when you open a Macy’s account you get 20% off  your entire purchase.

Macy’s also allows you to order online, banking all the great promo codes and online only sales, and then pick up your items in-store.  While getting your order delivered to your house may be more convenient, it also means paying for shipping.  If you can get to the store within seven days, it can be worth the small trip to dodge those shipping fees while still taking advantage of every last sale.


Soma’s semi-annual sale is no joke.  You can get bras from $19.99 and up.  Panties are 50% off when you buy 6 or more.  To top it all off, sleepwear, dresses, and lounge items are all up to 70% off.  In addition to the semi-annual sale, there is also a 50% off sale on select swimwear items.  If you want to make these deals even sweeter, be sure to grab the code for 20% off your entire purchase storewide.

Want an insider tip?  Buy sleepwear from Soma’s Embraceable Cool Nights line to keep cool on hot, summer nights.  While the line was originally intended for menopausal women suffering from hot flashes, the styles are cute enough for anyone in their twenties to wear. They’re high quality, and they make sleeping without the AC running a lot easier.  Invest in cute PJs, save money on  your electric bill.  They’re a win-win.

Victoria’s Secret

We couldn’t talk about an unmentionables sale without talking about what Victoria’s secret has to offer.  They are currently running their semi-annual swim sale, with over 700 styles 25-50% off.  Three hundred styles of bras are 25-50% off.  Select styles of swimwear and clothing are 50%, and the Love Pink line is featuring the Wear Everywhere bra for $16.99.  Some of the other items in the Love Pink line are discounted up to 50% off, as well.

If you order by tomorrow, you’ll still have time to take advantage of getting 20% off a single clearance item.  Order today, and you can get $10 off one bra, with free shipping and returns.
