Lingerie is the base for any outfit. If you want to look perfect, picking the correct lingerie is important, as it plays a major role in defining your figure. In India we’re still awkward to go out and ask for a well-fitted bra or a nice pair of lacy lingerie.
Well, if you’re one of those ladies who hasn’t taken lingerie shopping seriously or feel any bra can do the job, let me guide you through these amazing types of lingerie styles that you have to own:
Everyday Cotton Bra
I know summers in India are very awful. And all that sweat, irritation makes you feel even more awful. To have that poke free, comfortable experience an everyday cotton bra is all you need. It is non-padded, non-wired which ensure you stay comfortable throughout the day. Crafted from cotton which is known for its breathable and moisture-absorbent nature makes it a great pick for Indian climates. So get ready for the summers and beat the heat with amazing cotton bras!
Want to slay that deep neck blouse? Worried about the bra showing up? Don’t you worry girl we got your back, or should I say front? One of the more obvious benefits of plunge bras is that they have demi coverage cups that provide low coverage and help you flaunt your low neckline. Be it an evening gown or a saree blouse a plunge bra would work great for both western and ethnic outfits.
A lot of Indian women are naturally blessed with a great pair of breasts but little others understand the troubles of having a big bust size. For women you understand what we are talking about, you need to try a minimizer bra. It visually makes you look 2 sizes smaller and helps you wear those button-down shirts without the gaping issue.
Want a push-up effect without wearing a push-up bra, then get a balconette bra. This bra can do the job for very well if you have a breast shape that is bottom-heavy and are side-setted ones. With half coverage cups and underwires, it creates a visible cleavage which makes your breasts look fuller and rounder under low/square necklines.
Tops & tees are have becomes the very basics of every Indian woman’s wardrobe. An everyday bra under a fitted tee might look very ugly with stitches and seams showing or worse nipples showing. What you need for such clothes is a seamless T-shirt bra. They are padded -lightly or heavily based on your preference to conceal nipple show while adding a little volume to your breasts. They are often crafted from seamless fabric to give a clean and neat appearance under body-hugging outfits. You could pick underwired styles if you desire a gentle lift or for non-wired ones if you don’t.
Say hi to hipsters. These are also called hip huggers, this hipster brief style got its name because it has broad coverage on the side of hips and prevents side bulges. The waist could be a mid-rise or high rise. The later helps in avoiding muffin top and gives a toned look under high waist jeans and fitted dresses.
Tired of feeling embarrassed when the panty lines show up? Such a nightmare right? Whether you want something sexy or functional that eliminates visible panty lines, thongs are a perfect choice. It offers modest coverage at the front but no rear coverage, hence no chances at all for your panty lines to show up.
