Five lingerie snips in the sales

The sales are the perfect opportunity to get your hands on high-quality timeless classics. Think trench coat, trouser suit, leather jacket… but don’t forget your lingerie drawer. Marie Jo ticks off the five classics no lingerie drawer can be without!

  1. Strapless bra

 

The bra to wear when you want to bare your shoulders. A must, certainly with spring and summer on the way. It provides all the support you need under a strapless (party) dress or summer bandeau top.

 

  1. Shapewear

 

Don’t feel offended! Because shapewear in the form of a dress, a body or a pair of shorts is recommended even if you’re blessed with the perfect figure . Shapewear smooths away any lumps, bumps and other imperfections, including visible knicker and bra lines under a tight dress.

 

  1. Red-letter day…

 

It’s true to say that white, black and nude are all classics that no lingerie drawer can really do without. But if there’s one colour you should target in the sales, it’s surely red. There’s a shade of this trendy colour to suit every skin type. And red lingerie is invisible under white clothing.

 

  1. Smooth cups

Smooth preformed cups are a discrete must under tight t-shirts and figure-hugging dresses. If your breasts are slightly lacking in firmness or a little less full, a Spacer bra or a foam-filled style creates attractive curves.

  1. Bra with sexy cleavage

 

It doesn’t always have to be functional and simple… A dress or t-shirt with a low V, round or square neck demands a sexy bra that creates gorgeous cleavage. One seductive classic is the balconnet. If you have less to work with, go for a sensual push-up!
