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

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!

How to Dress Your Killer Curves

With Christmas fast approaching it can mean only one thing, party dress season has arrived! It’s time to glam up and let the world know you’ve got it and you’re going to flaunt it!

But just in case you’re a little stuck on how to make the most out of your body and you’re struggling to find the perfect lingerie to wear under your fabulous outfit, we’ve put together some top tips and advice to help you know how to dress your killer curves this Christmas!

It’s all in the Shape

To create perfect harmony between your lingerie and your party dress, pay close attention to the style of the neckline!

For sweetheart or V-shaped necklines, wear a plunge bra to avoid any accidental bra spotting’s (we don’t want that now, do we?) A padded plunge will give you that extra oomph! While side support will create a natural uplifted look. The Fantasie Abigail and Elodi are firm favourites of ours. For fuller figures, Lexi by Elomi is a fantastic choice for a plunge with extra support!

Going the full mile with a super sexy low cut neckline? Then you need Rochelle by Gossard for its sensual deep plunge.

But for higher necklines go for a smooth finish; no lumps or bumps wanted here thank you. The ever so popular Deco range by Freya is the ideal solution due to its moulded seamless cups. But if you find the Deco’s plunge too low for your shape, then try Eclispe by Fantasie for a better fit.

Look at that Body

Make a statement with a bold body con or dazzling cocktail dress and highlight your assets with stunning shapewear.

The Panache Envy Body is a great alternative to your everyday humdrum control pants. It’s a little bit sexy, which makes it perfect for dressing up and still comes with all the support and control that you need. This piece is a guaranteed confident booster.

For those of you looking to simply enhance your waist line for some classic feminine glamour, then our waist clincher will be perfect for you!

Stay away from the Straps

When wearing flirty strapless styles or chic dresses with lace yokes please keep those bra straps hidden (even the ‘invisible’ ones – come on, you know everyone can see them!) and get yourself a strapless bra! The Panache Evie is an elegant option and because it’s nude it will go with everything!

Multiway bras like Curvy Kate’s Desire Plunge Bra, come with adjustable straps which makes them perfect for sexy racer backs and halter neck styles.

Say goodbye to the VPL

We’ve all experienced that moment when we take one last look in the mirror just before heading out the door and to our horror…uh oh. The dreaded VPL.

Avoid spending all night trying to hide your visible panty line and show off that butt in all its glory by opting for styles with a delicate lace edging that will lie flat upon your skin. We love the Ivana deep thong by Fantasie and as a bonus, these knickers make your bum look incredible!

Alternatively, if thong’s aint your thang. Try seamless edged briefs in super soft fabrics like Lepel’s Lyla.

But the most important rule of all is….make sure your undies fit correctly! Trust us when we say, it’s your secret weapon to confidence!
