2017 Lingerie Trends and Buying Tips
Regardless of the type of outfit you are putting together, starting with a good foundation is important. It is all too easy to ruin your look by wearing ill fitting underwear that creates unsightly bulges. Not to mention the fact that wearing the wrong size or type of bra and panties is uncomfortable.
To help you to avoid this situation, we have put together these lingerie trends and buying tips. Read on to find out more about the different styles that are available and how to choose the right type for your outfit.
Plus size lingerie becoming easier to buy
It is particularly nice to see that more retailers have woken up to the fact that women, in most countries, are getting bigger. As a result, more shops are stocking a good range of plus size lingerie. This makes it far easier for you to buy the right size bra and panties so you always look your best.
However, this is only going to happen if you have measured yourself properly in the first place. You can learn how to do this online, there are some really easy to follow videos available on YouTube.
After a few years of brightly colored lingerie, many designers have included blush toned pieces in their collections. This is good news because it makes it easier to make sure that your underwear is not visible under your clothes when you do not want them to be.
Balcony style bras
For 2017, balcony style bras are the main style trend. These offer plenty of lift, which makes it easy for you to create a sexy silhouette. They suit most body shapes, so are a good option. If you are looking for a bra to wear with a summer dress, this is a good starting point.
However, always take the time to try your lingerie on with the type of dress you are planning to wear it with. That way you can double check that they look right together. For example, some half cup bras do not work when worn with a plunge neckline.
Front fastening bras
It is also good to see more retailers offering front fastening bras. These are far easier to put on, and it is nice to see some sexier versions becoming available.
Multi strap lingerie
The multi strap trend has been carried over from 2016 and improved upon. Multi strap bras look delicate and interesting at the same time. Sometimes the extra straps offer more support as well as a better aesthetic.
Most people like sheer lingerie, but it is not for everyone. Some women prefer for certain areas to be covered, but like to show some skin in other areas. For them peek-a-boo sheer lingerie is a great option. It still looks very sexy, but it provides coverage where you want it.
Floral print lingerie
If you are looking for lingerie that is pretty as well as sexy, you are in luck. At the moment, there are some really nice floral print sets available in the shops.
Once you have bought your lingerie, it is important to take care of it. If you launder it properly, it will last longer and provide you with better support. You can find out more about how to do this, on this page.
