Every outfit feels better when you know you're wearing fabulous lingerie underneath.
This summer, think luxurious lace, seriously soft silk and mood-boosting brights as colourful styles dominate. And with an increased focus on comfort, feeling and looking great under your clothes has never been so easy.
If you're looking to treat yourself - or a loved-one - now is the perfect time to invest in real quality underwear. We love a great everyday bra, but there's nothing quite as indulgent as slipping on some underwear in luxury fabrics. From french lace to the finest silk, designers are pulling out all the stops to create lingerie that truly does feel like a luxury.And whether you're looking for non-padded soft cup bras, supportive fuller bust styles or some seductive shaping buys, the high street and high end designers have really impressed this season with their covetable collections.
So where to start? Stepping out of your comfort zone can be great, but when it comes to what's underneath your clothes, we say it's best to stick to what you know. If you've discovered that your body shape suits balcony bras and full briefs, then opt for your usual styles in a new fabric that will make you feel gorgeous. This wearable set frm F&F is both affordable and beautiful -
Fancy something more daring? We've seen a huge increase in sheer bralet styles that come without an underwire - a step away from your daily option, perhaps, but surprisingly flattering for those occasions when you really want to impress.
