February’s Lingerie Lust List has stepped away from anything bespoke or luxury, with labels available on the UK high street grabbing my attention more than anything else this month. As I mentioned in January’s post, this series is for anything underwear-related that’s caught my eye and so not everything will necessarily be in my size, price range or country. Hopefully some of it will be on your your list now too!
1) Gossard ‘super smooth’ plunge bra
I love a good plunge bra, especially if its moulded for added fullness, and the wire-free super smooth from Gossard has a lovely design. As it’s not a wired bra, it’s also potentially super comfy. Definitely something I will be looking to try out soon, especially in the lacy fabric.
2) ‘Reger’ by Janet Reger black embroidered set
Having done a bit of research into the history of the Janet Reger brand last year, I have since been keeping a bit more of an eye on the current ‘Reger’ range at Debenhams that is designed by Jane’s daughter Alizia. I love the non-padded bra, thong and deep suspender belt pictured above, in black mesh with pale pink embroidery. Classic glamour without a crazy price tag.
3) Triumph dark pink ‘Amourette 300’ wired bra
The colour and stretch lace fabric of this Amourette bra are beautiful, but it’s out of stock in pretty much every size now so I think I’ll have to console myself with one of the other colours that they make it in. I tried this bra on when I visited the Triumph pop up shop in Covent Garden a couple of years ago and I can see why the style’s been around for a while as it’s comfortable as well as flattering.
4) John Lewis lace cup full slip
This pretty slip from John Lewis is what I wear underneath my Wolf & Whistle tea dresses to stop static cling and it’s so lovely that I really wish they made it in more colours. The stretch lace is comfortable and flattering – plus it looks great over a bright coloured plunge bra – and the jersey fabric is beautifully soft. If you need a full slip that finishes around the knee, it’s definitely worth a look.
5) M&S Light Control Flatter-Me™ Floral Lace Armwear Crop Top
I’m all about the lace this month, aren’t I? While perusing shapewear on the Marks & Spencer website earlier this month, I came across this amazing piece of underwear/outerwear which is ideal for those of us who are not keen on sleeveless tops and dresses. The control sleeve crop top can also be worn as underwear to help those of us with large upper arms fit into snug sleeved garments. If I try it, I’ll let you know whether it works!
