With September just around the corner we’re all feeling those back to school vibes. The summer season is drawing to a close and while we’ve had a fun and fabulous summer of slinky swimwear, sexy night slips and seductively summery lingerie we’re all feeling the draw of the lingerie essentials. Everyday lingerie needn’t be dull; it gives us the feeling of shopping for fresh stationary and school supplies, of getting organised and feeling ready to face the autumn season. There’s nothing like an everyday lingerie overall to make you feel comfortable and look your best so here’s our run down of our favourite pieces from Berlei, Spanx and Hanro for even the toughest days work.
Berlei is a lingerie brand synonymous with excellent fit, comfort and style. The brand has a rich heritage having been established in Australia in 1917 Fred Burley conducted an anatomical study of women's sizing to create the best possible standardised sizing for his lingerie and corsetry, a revolutionary approach for it's time. Berlei UK was launched on regent Street in London in 1929 and was quickly praised by Vogue and became established over the years to come as a staple brand within the UK lingerie market.
Here is one of our favourite everyday essential sets from the new season's collection.
Berlei Comfort Heaven lace black wired bra features extremely soft textured floral lace bra cups with innovative BioForm wire technology to reduce wire movement and therefore less chance of wires poking through to skin. The bra features cotton lining in the lower bra cups for comfort. The brief features a central microfibre panel for light tummy control while soft stretch floral lace adds detail to the front panel and forms a full lace derriere panel. Scalloped lace elastic trim at the legline adds a pretty finish. The perfect way to look and feel fabulous all day; buy yours now.
Spanx was founded by Sarah Blakely after having struggled to find just the right slimming lingerie to wear under her white trousers. Her solution? Cut off the feet of some old shaping tights and voila, Spanx was born. The collection is now a global success helping shape tummies, bottoms and thighs the world over with over 200 styles to suit every figure and budget. We have to admit, there is a reason for Spanx enduring success, they are quite simply the best shapewear brand around.
Our favourite Spanx piece this season?
Spanx Look at me black cotton leggings. They are so practical and so essential yet a complete upgrade on our regular, less than flattering regular leggings. These Look at me black cotton leggings are completely opaque and designed to be seen with clever seamless sides and the fabric that slims the tummy, bottom and thighs for a perfectly sculpted look. The ideal accompaniment to all your favourite t-shirts and tunics. Buy your new favourite leggings today.
Hanro is a Swiss lingerie brand with a very distinctive style that exudes luxury and simplicity. Forgoing fashion trends Hanro products are made on classic, elegant styles from the most luxurious cotton, silk and wool fibres with elements of French lace and satin binding trims creating just a touch of sensuality. Hanro creates lingerie, lounge and sleepwear which feels divine next to the skin and will never go out of style; an everyday luxury you can't afford to be without.
It was hard to choose but we found our favourite from the NEW collection;
Hanro Pure Silk collection is a rare luxury and has many uses as outerwear, lingerie and loungewear. Silk has superb absorbency and the ability to cool or warm the body regulating your temperature as necessary. This is what makes the cream V-neck spaghetti top so special with its luxurious pure 100% silk fine rib fabric which gives ultimate softness and comfort against the skin. The top features a seam free finish for maximum comfort and a discrete look beneath clothes. Silk stretch binding edges the V-neck line adding detail and forms adjustable shoulder straps for a perfect fit. The cream silk leggings are formed from the same 100% stretch knit silk and feature a side-seam free finish for maximum comfort. An elasticated waist also adds comfort. These luxurious leggings can be worn beneath trousers for warmth or as an outer legging. These are everyday luxury lingerie staples you will wonder how you ever lived without. Treat yourself today; buy in black too or purchase with one of the longer sleeve tops.
