Lingerie shopping guide based on your zodiac sign

Gemini: The fancy one

You've got luxe style and taste and don't eff around when it comes to underwear. You understand that a strong foundation of quality and comfort is essential before all other things. That doesn't mean that you don't love experimenting with different trends and looks though! You're often the first to hop on an emerging trend and all your friends come to you for the ultimate Cool Girl influence.

Your go-to: An unlined underwire bra that's almost too pretty to put away paired with matching hipsters.

If you really wanna amp it up: A modern '90s take on thongs by the ever-classic Cosabella.

Mesh Bra, Cosabella (Available at Net-a-Porter), Rs 4,216 (approx); Mesh Thong, Cosabella, Rs 1,427

Cancer: The girly one

While you define sexy as feeling comfortable and supported, that in no way means you're vanilla. You've got a vulnerability to you that's rare and often draws people in. You prefer frilly things to overtly sexy things. You wanna live in a world filled with pastels and lacy, delicate things.
