When you update your wardrobe for the new season you should also renew your lingerie, certainly take some time to go through your lingerie drawer and check what needs to be replaced. After a while, bras and knickers do tend to lose their shape and support so it is important to try everything on, much the same as you would do your clothes each season to check fit and shape.
If you have some bras which have seen you through a few seasons it is probably time to discard them and get your bust fitted. The first thing to do is plan a visit to a reputable Lingerie retailer or specialist shop. Getting fitted regularly will not only help to flatter your figure beneath clothes but also prevent aches and pains. Ill-fitting bras can leave unsightly marks in your skin if they are not the correct size, they can also cause back pain and lack of good support can make your skin sag! Breasts change, while you may have been a 34D in your twenties, you might find you’re a different size and shape by the time you reach your thirties and so on, other factors which can bring on change include pregnancy and menopause. So when thinking about new lingerie get yourself measured at the same time.
Our latest designer collections include a wide variety of shapes, styles colours and fit. New collections from Ambra, Madame Supertrash, Empreinte, Lise Charmel and Huit all arriving in the next month. We believe we have something for everyone, from flirty little feminine sets to co-ordinates for the femme fatale! We also have supportive but extremely attractive lingerie for larger cup sizes and plenty of shapewear or corsetry, not to mention hold ups, stockings, tights, suspender belts and garters.
The latest products from Curvy Kate include the Portia collection, romantic, sensual and oh so delicate, consisting of a shorty, balconette bra and thong. Portia is a white lattice style lacy design trimmed with pastel pink ribbon with dainty bows perfect for updating your wardrobe this Autumn and designed with larger cup sizes in mind therefore giving excellent support and wonderfully flattering curves.
Empreinte has a new neutral coloured set for the Autumn; called Caramel it consists of a brief and demi-bra. With the Autumn fashion this year being higher waisted jeans it’s time to embrace high cut briefs, and this neutral shade (which is a good shade for the Autumn) works well under clothes as it does not show through as much as white. The Caramel range has a daisy print and little cream bow to finish it off.
Also ideal for the cooler months is Empreinte’s Melody Rose thong and seamless bra – the café coloured collection is a chic and sophisticated ensemble designed for comfort as well as its obviously stunning looks. It is made out of Chantilly lace and comes with invisible panty lines so if you are a lover of slim fitting jeans or trousers this set will work beautifully.
Fleur of England has a gorgeous set of lingerie in Blush which comes with a balcony bra, suspender, brief and thong. Just perfect to update your wardrobe, it is made out of the finest guipure embroidery stitched onto Italian fine tulle on blush silk satin. It is a comfortable set and so light you might forget you are wearing it yet it gives excellent support and is extremely comfortable around the back. Fleur also offers the Forever balcony bra and brief, these are beautiful everyday designer pieces as they offer superb support to the wearer yet are delectably light, so much so you, rather like Blush, you will forget they are there. The design is made up of panels of spectacular embroidery stitched to Italian tulle, feather-light and soft, the bra is finished with silk and for complete comfort the wings of the bra are lined with what is known as a power mesh – excellent for back support.
Greys and trusty black are popular colours for Autumn 2014 so if these are your preferred clothing shades, you will love Huit’s Fremch Kiss Moonlight range featuring a half cup bra, brief, shorts and Tanga brief. Effortlessly sexy, delightfully feminine and definitely elegant, this collection is lace trimmed with embroidery and delicate bow. So beautiful you will hate to hide it away!
While you are browsing Je Te Veux don’t forget to stock up on our range of excellent quality tights and hold ups, Autumn means legs are no longer on show but you can still show them off in luxury legwear such as Gerbe’s Fatal Stockings or Stay ups, perhaps the 20 denier Gerbe Mousse Altesse 20 denier stockings, so fine and soft you won’t notice them. For a real treat try our Gerbe Sun Satin Stockings which are 15 denier and are trimmed in floral lace at the top. The toe is reinforced too so they are a good match for office wear as well as under a sophisticated cocktail dress.
