Okay, so in the summer you are bound to be showing more skin than you would do in the winter which poses a problem for your lingerie. It seems to be a summer staple that in the summer evenings we tend to go to more barbeques, more nights out with our friends (as we don’t have to brave going there or coming home in the freezing cold in a dress and tights) and more weddings than normal.
All of these occasions mean that we are showing more skin than we normally would and therefore we have to reconsider our lingerie. So I thought I would go through the summer events you are likely going to and what to wear with what underwear.
1.) The summer BBQ
The summer BBQ is an English classic. As soon as the sun comes out we think of burgers, hotdogs and anything else we can burn black and wait 3 hours for! So if you are finishing work and going to a summer BBQ or if you are going to one at the weekend what do you wear?
Well considering the amount we will be eating, something like a strappy dress or summer dress that is loose around the waist and comes to above the knee is perfect. It means you can get the sun to your lower legs and also your shoulders (safely of course) whilst being cool and flattering to most figures. If you want something with short sleeves this too is a great look for a summer BBQ. So in terms of lingerie what do you need to go for? The great thing about this look is we don’t need any shapewear, we need some shorts rather than knickers just in case there is a gust of wind and if you have a smaller chest a great push up bra.
2.) Summer night out
Summer nights out to a club or for dinner with friends are the perfect opportunity to show off that bit of colour you got in the day. We like maxi dresses with intricate straps such as crossover straps at the back and shorts or a skirt and a top that shows your back.
So what lingerie to wear with this look? Well considering you are most likely showing off your shoulders and we don’t want to see any unsightly straps a strapless bra is a great idea along with some great firming knickers that tone your stomach to make you feel super gorgeous in whatever you are wearing.
3.) Summer wedding
The summer wedding is the one I always panic about. First of all don’t wear white, but after that it’s up to you. Choose a dress that is the shape you like in a great pastel colour or bright colour. It’s important to feel comfortable with all the photos that will most likely be taken.
If you are the bride then go for some great bridal lingerie. If you are attending a summer wedding then you want some great shapewear that will give you the perfect figure in your dress. We like smoothing all in ones we can wear under our dresses that suck you but also look fabulous by themselves, a real investment piece.
So we hope we have helped you with you summer lingerie. If you need any more advice you know where to contact us. This is just a guide the main thing is to be happy in what you wear, be careful in the sun and have a great time!
