If the contents of your lingerie draw are starting to look a little grey, and the underwire is beginning to lose its shape, then it is time for a spring clean! Why not treat yourself this spring to a few new lust-haves? Here is a guide to the essential pieces you’ll need to liven up your collection
Push up bras and gel bras
If you want to accentuate your natural assets then a push up bra is perfect for you. Such bras needn’t be plain or unstylish; you can find many with intricate designs, lace side panels, filigree patterns, bows or cross over straps. They can be made from all sorts of fabrics, from cotton to silk to satin.
So you’ve seen a dress that you love, but you’re worried about all the chocolate you’ve eaten over Easter. No need to fret, there is a vast array of body shaping underwear to suit your fashion needs this 2013. The words ‘body shaping underwear’ might make you think of Bridget Jones or Gok Wan, but just because they are created to hold you in in all the right places, it doesn’t mean that they lack style too. You can find such pieces in a range of styles, from girly and feminine to sexy and seductive.
An essential piece for every lingerie draw. Don’t let unsightly straps hold you back or prevent you from wearing more revealing outfits. Whether you’re opting for a racer back top, a one shoulder gown or a completely strapless dress, be sure to invest in a strapless bra so that you maintain some support whilst looking fabulous.
There are times when even strapless bras aren’t enough; perhaps you’re planning on wearing a backless dress or a top with large arm holes. For lots of lift, minus the unsightly straps and clasps, there are a number of adhesive cups out there which can add the necessary support and coverage, whilst magically going undetected when it most matters.
You probably have a number of mismatched bras and knickers in your lingerie draw, but it’s a good idea to have a select few matching sets for special occasions. You’d be surprised how different a matching set can make you feel – even if you know that no one is going to see it. It will do wonders for your confidence, especially if you have got the perfect fit.
