We are without doubt, multifaceted women with multifaceted wants and desires at different times in our lives, and sometimes, with different wants within days or hours (hurrah for the joy of changing our minds).
We are also, naturally, picky about our underwear and lingerie. Sometimes we may want to be held firmly in place and feel what it is to wear sensuous ‘grown up’ lingerie, other times, as we’ve firmly established; we want to be comfortable and there is no room in our lives for pinching wires, digging in straps and inadequate support – however beautiful, special or expensive the lingerie.
Thankfully the market is providing – here is a round up of some gorgeous bras, bralettes and the odd knicker or two that are beautiful, supportive (mainly), elegant, and comfy.
Next Daisy Forever Padded non wire £16
So pretty, so light… M&S Floral Tattoo Bralette £12.60
I’m somewhat obsessed by & Other Stories lingerie, so refined, considered, pretty and different.
Supportive – ah well, perhaps not so much but… mere details in this case of such frothy delight.
& Other Stories Floral Crepe Bandeau £23
With matching & Other Stories Floral Crepe Ruched Briefs £15
In trying to encourage spring and warmer times… let’s stay with yellow.
Aerie LOVE! Lace Padded bralette £23.97
A little while back Triumph launched a revolutionary bra called Fit Smart, doing away with ‘normal’ sizing of cup and back sizes for bras, they developed fabrics and foam with suppliers that would enable just 4 sizes being needed to cover cup and back sizes from 32A to 42DD/48B – there are no wires, but fabric and padded cups that mould to your body and ‘hug you’, offering support and an uplifting shape.
Triumph Fit Smart Padded Bra £40 – there are six colours available and co-ordinating briefs.
And with slightly higher coverage…
Triumph Fit Smart £40 – this has eight colourways… some are on sale.
On a similar one size fits all type garment, Oysho have recently launched this within their range – available in five neutral tones.
Oysho One Size Seamless top £15.99
Perfect for everyday…
Next Daisy Forever £20
With a mix of plain and lace…
Next Forever Daisy Longline £20
Higher in price than any of the above, but beautiful – again with every detail so considered…
Stella McCartney Polly Prancing Soft cup bra £95
Finally, a French brand that I absolutely love… not sure what import duties might be levied now… but… where there’s a will…
