Only black and white? What’s the right type? There is a lot to know to build your lingerie wardrobe the right way. Read on to score right on your intimates…
1. Quality matters
When you’re buying lingerie, quality matters more than anything else, especially when it comes to bras. Bras do more than just look good. They provide the right support and lift to your bust to keep you comfortable too. Triumph is one the lingerie brands that provide high-quality lingerie in pretty designs and colours.
2. When to wear a padded bra
Padded bras are not just for smaller sizes. Sure, when you want to add to your curves, opt for the solid padded bra. But a thinly padded bra is great for the bigger bodies too as it provides good support. Check out the pretty Floral Lace-padded Multiway Bra from Triumph. Detachable shoulder straps and non-wired seams add to comfort.
3. You need more than one type of bra
One size does not fit all. Neither does style. Your outfits and lifestyle call for different types. A T-shirt bra, for instance, is seamless and comes with a smooth cup – so no revealing bra lines even under that body-hugging T-shirt. A sports bra on the other hand is a must when engaging in any kind of physical activity – it supports and protects. The Triumph Colourblock Sports Bra with a zip closure is so cool that you may want to leave out your track tops when exercising in it – totally feels good.
4. When to opt for a minimiser bra
Minimiser bras are not suffocating (Yes, this is a common myth). They are constructed to help those struggling with bulges at the side or back. Women with a larger bust should check this out. The Triumph Solid Minimiser Bra has non padding detail and guarantees strong support.
5. Go for colour in lingerie
It’s a guaranteed feel good. The Triumph Solid Non-Padded Bra is practical and snug but so pretty in a deep navy blue. How about different colours for each day of the week? Your little ‘inner’ secret.
6. Underwear for the summer
If you tend to perspire or are most comfortable with cotton in the summer, opt for cotton underwear. Triumph has a variety, ranging from the High Cover Maxi Brief to the Lace Detailed Hipster Panty.
7. Lacy underwear, always in fashion
Lacy smalls have never gone out of fashion down the decades. Check these: Triumph Floral Lace Tonga and the Lace Detailed Elasticated Panty. If you like them, take your pick from the wide array of lacy ‘littles’ from TRIUMPH.
8. How to store lingerie
Always store your intimates folded properly. This ensures long life and maintains bra-fits.
9. Opt for matching underwear
One way to ensure you have matching sets of bras and panties is to work out your colour palette – that way you are more likely to always have a similar coloured pair handy.
10. When to wear white and black bras
White under white and black under black – this is the rule of thumb with lingerie. A black bra is fine under dark colours as well. A nude bra is best under coloured ensembles and prints – especially if your garments are even somewhat sheer.
