Iconic French fashion designer, Christian Dior once said: “Without foundation there can be no fashion.” Dior also stated that “Lovely lingerie is the basis of good dressing.” We couldn’t agree more.

It’s time to get your top drawer in top form, get synonymous with the “s word,” and shop comfortably and confidently when buying lingerie. Just as you exercise caution when picking the right style of jeans for your shape, the same is needed for your undergarments. Choosing the right style of lingerie is essential if you want to achieve the perfect fit and uplift, be comfortable – and feel as good as you look!

If You’ve Got It, Flaunt It

No matter your body shape, stray from buying lingerie that’s going to highlight your “problem” areas. Instead, flaunt your assets! If you’re pear shaped and bottom heavy like most women, draw attention to your bust with a lacy underwire bra, and bring sexy back with a full brief to slim those hips and thighs. Not too endowed in the bust department? Opt for some extra oomph with an underwire push-up bra with padded cups.

If you are genetically blessed with that Marilyn Monroe hourglass figure (and with a hint of jealousy, we salute you!), strut your stuff in a smoking two-piece set. Make sure both pieces fit your figure properly, and accentuate your curves in all the right places.

Alas, not everyone is lucky enough to possess an hourglass figure (sigh). Thankfully, if we don’t have it, we can fake it! Got a boyish frame? Add feminine curves to your shape with frilly silhouettes. These girly touches will add volume to a straight figure so that it appears more curvaceous.

Last but not least. Legs for days? Emphasise those sleek stems with a high cut thong – your fashionably-fitted pants will thank you.
