London-based Meng specializes in silk printed loungewear — which is really the more comfortable version of lingerie, if you ask us. The brand’s V-neck pleated-front kaftans are so pretty, it’s actually seriously tempting to wear them outside; and the printed satin kimonos, which come in gorgeous shades like rose and cream and jacquard fabrics, make a very chic alternative for traditional lingerie or pajamas.

This environmentally friendly label is full of beautiful prints and the perfect pop of color. Founded by entrepenuer Catarina Girald and actress Gina Rodriguez (of “Jane the Virgin”), Naja seeks to empower women, both through their imagery as well as their committment to employing single mothers and heads of households in their factories. In a world of many lingerie brands, Naja is refreshingly unique.
