As is traditional at this time of year, this month we’re focusing on pretty underthings.
The older I get, the more I realise how important it is to get the foundations of your outfit right first. A staggering 85% of women are reportedly wearing the wrong size bra. Not only is it important that your bra is comfortable and the correct size, but ladies can often underestimate the importance of a well-fitting bra to the appearance of their clothes.
Women are all shapes and sizes and different brands can fit differently, therefore it is important to go to a specialist lingerie retailer where the staff have been fully trained and have the knowledge and expertise to advise. We’re lucky to have lots of independent lingerie shops in Cheshire who can help, including Award winning lingerie, swimwear and nightwear boutique, See-Saw Lingerie in Hale; Betty & Belle in Altrincham; and Bare Necessities in Knutsford.
Not only does a correctly sized bra make your clothes fit better, but lingerie is the closest thing we wear to our skin, so choosing something beautiful can also make you feel great.
Underwear is subject to fads and fashions, just like outerwear, so what can we expect to see for Spring Summer 2019?
Each season the team at the Pantone Colour Institute creates the Pantone Fashion Colour trend report; a colour overview highlighting the top colours fashion designers will be featuring in their collections for the upcoming season. In December 2018 they announced Living Coral as the Pantone® Colour of the Year 2019, an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone.
“Living Coral emits the desired, familiar and energising aspects of colour found in nature.”
This trend has filtered down to the lingerie industry and this season you can choose from powdery and sugary pinks, cool corals and elegant neutrals; Pink is a calming colour associated with love, kindness and femininity, pair it with coral, a hint of vibrant neon (a key fashion trend for next season) and lashings of white for a super chic and modern yet fun look.
These cheerful colours will prove exciting additions to any warm-weather wardrobe, and they’re the perfect antidote to moody wintry hues (and weather!).
So whatever the reason treat yourself to some really sexy lingerie this month and feel GORGEOUS all year round.
