Multiway strapless bra
Next time you’re shopping for a killer party dress, don’t let what’s in your underwear drawer restrict your choices. With a multiway strapless bra in your bra armoury (bramoury?) you’ll be ready for anything. Wear strapless, halterneck, crossover back or asymmetric strap and make it work for your outfit. This bra right here is actually the world’s largest strapless bra, available up to K cup – so please don’t ever think that you can’t go strapless if you’ve a bigger bust.
For head-turning cleavage only one bra will do – it’s got to be a plunge. Plunge bras are low at the front making them perfect for deep, sexy necklines, and higher at the side of the cup, pushing your breasts together slightly for a va-va-voom look!
Depending on your body shape you may prefer pieces of shapewear that target specific areas, but a bodyshaper is a good all-rounder with the added advantage of giving a smooth line all over. A natural coloured one will be much more invisible under pale clothing than a white one.
If you’re reaching for a fab dress in the morning, make sure you aren’t scrabbling around for tights aren’t bobbly and laddered to go with it! High denier plain black tights look chic and classy – and make your legs look fab! If it’s a plain dress, why not add interest with patterned tights instead?

Ah don’t you love it when you can start wearing your summer wardrobe! All those light, bright colours and strapless or strappy tops!
But there’s no point having a gorgeous summery outfit that’s let down by the wrong underwear – a greying bra strap on show just won’t do! Wearing the right bra is key to getting the most out of your summer look.
Here are our top tips to help you get it right.
White is a really big trend this summer, but one of the main mistakes people make is to wear a white bra beneath a white top. This will actually show up quite clearly because white + white = extra white. If you want your bra to blend in then what you really need is a skintone bra, like this one:
For halterneck or asymmetric strap tops and dresses you need a bra that can adapt to suit. This is where the multiway bra comes in!
For more delicate halternecks or strapless tops it’s got to be a strapless bra. Don’t be tempted to just take down the shoulder straps of your normal bra and tuck them in! Not only will you get lumps where you tuck the straps in but you simply won’t get the right shape and support. This strapless bra gives comfortable support up to an H cup:
