Dress: Low Cut V-necks
Bra: Gossard Superboost Padded Plunge in Twilight
Why: Superboost offers a low front centre gore and thin straps for minimal coverage, meaning no unsightly bra flashes!

Dress: Wrap Dresses
Bra: Fantasie Elodie Balcony in Cobalt
Why: Elodie is the one for wrap dresses as it’s balcony style has wide set straps that will sit perfectly underneath. Wrap dresses are great if you require a bra with a higher front for that extra support!

Dress: Plus Size
Bra: Elomi Anushka Plunge 
Why: Elomi is always are go to style for fuller breasts! They offer fantastic support and are absolutely gorgeous. We think Anushka will jingle all the way this Christmas with it’s fiery red colour and pretty lace detailing!

Dresses: Spaghetti Straps & Strapless
Bra: Panache Evie Strapless in Nude
Why: Seems obvious really doesn’t it? Strapless dresses need a strapless bra. But what about those with those teeny tiny thin straps? Best to keep the straps away and opt for strapless there too! We love Evie by Panache as it offers all the support of a normal bra and it’s paneled cups means it has an amazing fit!

Dress: Sheer
Bra: Panache Evie Strapless in Black
Why: There’s nothing more feminine and classic than a sheer or lace panel! So again, lets not ruin the appeal with unpleasant straps, and guess what? Evie also comes in Black.

Dress: Tailored Shifts & Bodycons
Shapewear: Spanx High Waisted Mid-Thigh Shorts
Why: Shapewear is perfect for smoothing out your silhouette and emphasing all your curves! Just what the fitted dress called for.

Dress: High Necklines
Bra: Fantasie Allegra with Side Support in White
Why: High necklines can really show off your shape, so stop your breasts from looking east & west by choosing a bra with an added side support panel in the cups! Side support helps project your shape forward and will keep you looking neat and tidy.

Dress: Cocktail Dress
Bra: Tutti Rouge Jessica Plunge with Tutti Booster
Why: Some dresses really do want that va-va-voom! And Jessica is the only one you need for that. Jessica comes with Tutti Booster pads in 2 different sizes, so you can tailor that oomph from day to night!

Men’s Guide to Buying Lingerie

mentips

Right men, it’s time to know your limits!

So you’re thinking about treating your one and only to a gorgeous collection of lingerie this Christmas, but just don’t know where to begin? It can all seem a little daunting can’t it, well there’s no need to be a Grinch about it anymore. The team at Mish are here to help with our guide to buying lingerie!

If the pressures of underwear shopping are adding up to be too much, then keep it simple!

Buy her a Luxury Fitting Experience, right here, at Mish! Included is £50 worth of lingerie, a style consultation over a glass of bubbly and a relaxed and comfortable bra fitting from one of our professionally trained fitters. To top it all off, we’ll even throw In a goody bag.

Additionally, Mish offers Gift Voucher’s in a range of prices from £10 – £500, which can be brought in-store.

A Gift Voucher doesn’t have to just be a ‘gift voucher’ either, turn it into a sweet sentiment. Wrap it up in a cute box and tie a ribbon around it, but most importantly add a touching note; tell her you love her, but you just knew she would do a better job than you ever could. As you know, we women do like to be right 😉

But if it’s the ultimate surprise you are looking for then just remember these 5 TOP TIPS:

1. It’s all about the size! Especially when it comes to the bra! And this is no guessing game, oh no. When she’s not around find her favourite bra (with hope she’s not wearing it that day!) and make note of her size. Mish stocks from cup sizes B-JJ and band sizes 28-44.

2. Know her style! Take a moment to look at what she likes…yes I’m sure you’ve seen it all before, but take a closer look this time. Is she vibrant? Love feminine prints? Bold colours? Or does she prefer lace in classic tones such as white, black or nude?

3. Once you’ve got the style nailed, it’s time to think about the different shapes bras come in! Some women prefer a full cup, others a balcony, whilst many prefer a plunge. Check the style of shape your partner has more of, and you’re sure to get it right.

4. And lastly, we cannot forget about her knickers! Every women loves to match her undies, Mish recommends 2-3 pairs per bra. But ask yourselves this first… Is she a thong lady? Or does she favour shorts or briefs?

5. Once you’ve found the perfect lingerie…Don’t forget to ask us to Gift Wrap it for you!
