Sometimes you need to keep things simple underneath to give your outfit maximum impact. If you’re wearing a close fitting or clingy dress it’s time to forgo the frillies and go for some super-sleeking shapewear! Watch our video to see the difference it makes.
Now Gina is wearing a gorgeous balconette bra with matching knickers from Masquerade. After all, there’s no reason why you can’t wear lingerie this beautiful everyday!
A balconette is a great alternative to a full cup bra and it perfect for wearing with square neck or scoop neck tops. This set has a lot of embellishment on it though so it’s not ideal for wearing with everything.
Take our next party dress for example…
As this dress has a high neckline, a balconette style bra is not the best choice. What’s more, all those lovely lace details and frill trims stand out through the fabric. Ideally your underwear should be invisible under your outfit.
Let me show you how to achieve this…
Now this may not look like anything special – but sometimes the simplest styles are the best!
I’ve put Gina in a basic t-shirt bra, which gives her a nice seam-free finish. The full coverage style gives her great support and a lovely rounded shape, too. We’ve just gone for simple every day briefs – so you can still be comfy when you’re dancing the night away!
Now here comes my secret weapon. (For an extra figure-sleeking effect I’m going to put Gina in a control body shaper. This one has no underwiring so she can wear it over the top of her bra and pants.
This is such a versatile piece. There’s no need to invest in different shapewear for every outfit – you can wear this over any of the underwear you already own. It’s also ideal if your cup size fluctuates as you can just wear it over a different size bra.
In fact this is such a good control body I have known women to wear this with jeans and just slip a blazer over the top. Underwear as outerwear is so on trend at the moment and it’s a great look for party nights out.
So Gina’s still got her own underwear on (Sarah to show bra and knickers) but the controlwear is giving her boobs even more of a boost and her whole figure has a really smooth outline. If you just slip the dress back on Gina you will see how stunning the overall effect is. It’s such an easy way to give a party outfit the wow factor.
