Since we’re talking lingerie this week, we thought you might like to try our ‘What Bra are you?’ Facebook quiz! Just answer a couple of quick questions and we’ll tell you what bra you’d be and why. Plus, we’ll pick out a selection of gorgeous plus size lingerie that we think will be so you!
We’re doing something a little different this week. Instead of looking at the trends or following the latest celebrity look, we’re going undercover and looking at your lingerie! Because lingerie is the plus-size woman’s secret weapon!
Who says support can’t be pretty?
There’s a nasty rumour going round that full-figured women can’t get pretty lingerie. Well we’re here to tell you that’s a lie! If you’ve ever dipped into our plus-size lingerie collection, you’ll know it covers every woman’s wish! Cute, pretty, sassy or sexy – you can do it all with Simply Be’s lingerie collection!
Just look at the picture above. We’ve got bright colours, subtle blacks and every style you could want, including figure-fixing cheats… oh, yes, your lingerie is a tool and you can use it to your fashion advantage! From cinching waists to firming bums, pushing up boobs to keeping them under control – there’s always a sneaky lingerie piece to help you get the desired effect.
And of course, with Simply Be’s plus size lingerie collection, you won’t have any trouble finding the right size. Our range runs from a 30 to a 50 back and an A to a JJ cup, so you really can get the latest lingerie styles in your size. And there’s a handy fitting guide online to help you get a perfect fit. Oh, and it’s well worth watching our ‘measuring guide’ and ‘common problems’ videos to make sure you really do have the right fit.
A gorgeous starting point
So, you know you’ve got loads of gorgeous options in your size – now let’s put it all in perspective. Your lingerie is the starting point of every outfit. In fact, we’d go as far as to say that it can make or break an outfit. After all, there’s nothing worse than wearing a low cut dress and finding that your bra keeps popping into view.
So our advice is get a collection of plus size lingerie… plunge bras, balconette bras, t-shirt bras and maybe even a couple of figure fixing options for those special occasions (or indeed, your everyday looks, because you’ll be surprised just how comfortable they are). Multiway bras are important too. If you’re a busty woman, you may not get the support you need from a strapless bra but you can always attach clear straps to a multiway one!
Then once you’ve got a collection in place, match your bra to your outfit. Pick a colour and style that will complement what you’re wearing – you’ll be surprised just what a difference it’ll make. And though it’s tempting to wear those pretty or flirty bras everyday, try to resist – detailed bras will often show through light Summer layers, so save them for the right outfit!
And finally, remember that bras wear out just like every other piece in your wardrobe – but it’s not always blatantly obvious. Test your bras regularly to make sure they still fit. The back band will stretch over time, so move to a tighter hook if you feel you’re not getting the same support you did when you first bought it.
Ah, Queen Latifah! This curvy star sings, dances and acts… she’s definitely got talent! And we really wouldn’t expect her style to be anything short of immaculate. From all out red carpet glam to cool r ‘n b chic, she’s done it all and looked gorgeous every time – jealous much? We definitely are!
So who better to steal style from than this plus-size pop princess (oh sorry, queen)! Now, we know you probably won’t have much call for a ball dress, especially in these warm Summer months, so we’ve gone with one of her cool-casual looks. Sequinned jacket, plain white vest, jeans and stand-out trainers! Well, with your Simply Be collection, that’s an easy combination to make!
From the bottom up then… these Ecko Red Jitterbug Trainers are just perfect. Black with pink patterning will give you that standout style. But if you really want to big up the look, invest in some coloured laces – red, blue, yellow, the lot!
Next come our Joe Browns Slim Fit Jeans. Simply but sassy with detailing on the pockets, so you won’t feel like a plain Jane! They’ll look great with a cute white vest top. Ours come in a pack of 2, so you’ll have a black one to mix ‘n match with the rest of your wardrobe!
And finally finish with an attention-grabbing jacket, something like our sequinned Joanna Hope number. It’s the perfect way to glam up any look and works just as well with a dress as will with jeans and a t-shirt. Now this one is your investment piece, it’s £80 but definitely worth every penny, especially in the Summer time you’re going to need a light-bling jacket to finish those night out looks!
Oh, and if you’re really want to steal Queen Latifah’s style – don’t forget your red lippy!
