Plunging neckline: making the statement this season. A statement whose cut draws the eye down the body, the plunging neckline remains on trend for spring / summer 2015, however finding the right bra can be tricky – this will ultimately depend on how deep the plunge is!
T-shirt bra’s should be a lingerie draw staple – when you find the right fit this sort of bra is invisible under tight fitting tops and dresses! Necklines will vary, but most are ideal under square, scoop or high!
We all love the look of a strapless dress or one with dainty straps, but when it comes to getting the look and lift of a bra with straps, we often fail! Here are 3 of our best and most supportive strapless bras…
We stock a fantastic multi-way bra, the Chantelle ‘Vous & Moi’ up to an F cup… Ultra-comfortable memory foam T-shirt bra that gives the bust an uplift effect, with an invisible and refined cut due to see-through detailing on the straps. This bra also has detachable straps that can be utilised a number of ways or replaced with a clear strap! Perfect for someone who wants the benefit of strapless but with straps!
Say no to ‘visible panty lines’!!
A thong or string would be the obvious choice but not everyone finds these comfortable! Sloggi Invisible’s would be perfect in this situation! The range does offer a thong, however there is also the option of a deep short… The scalloped edge sits perfectly flat and as the shorts are seam free, they cannot be seen under most garments!
Miracle Suit offer various different shapes and are a must have for keeping a smooth silhouette under any outfit! All styles available in sizes 12-18 and are available in black and nude.
Waist Cincher – you’ll be amazed as your figure is transformed! Designed with seams to create the perfect hour glass shape, inner double panel construction and side release panels, the garment offers extra firm control and removes inches from your waist!
Not a lot of people will realise this, but you can see someone’s lingerie through their outfit 80% of the time due to the colour!
If your outfit is a light colour, opt for nude or flesh coloured lingerie – NOT WHITE!! If you are dark skinned go for a coffee colour, if you are very pale, opt for a more milky hue. Basically the key here is to try and match your lingerie to the colour of your skin. Matching your underwear to your outfit might seem like a good idea (and a cute one) however, unless the fabric of your outfit is quite heavy, such as a cotton or wool, you will more than likely see an outline through.
For darker coloured enssambles, there is obviously a bit more leeway. You might get away with matching colours! However, the safest and most practical option is to opt for black or again, nude (as you are likely to get more wear out of the bra again!)
As mentioned earlier, for some outfits and necklines, there just isn’t a bra that will do, which is why we stock Ra Ra Room accessories! From double sided tape, to ‘Happy Straps’ and stick on cups – we are sure to have a solution for you!
