Romantically Red, Perfectly Purple or Beautifully Blue - The New Lingerie Edit

I walked into a certain store last week to be faced with a sea of black, nude and white lingerie.  Useful?  Everyday?  Wearable?  Ok.  Sexy?  Fun?  Interesting? Bring a smile to your face on any day dull or otherwise?  Most likely not.

The fact that most of these are photographed on beautiful bodied models to make us believe that they’re gorgeous and sexy doesn’t make going for something different any easier, but it’s the colours.  Frankly they’re boring – and anyway who doesn’t already have a drawer full of black, nude and white.  It’s time to have some fun…….

Every girl has black and nude lingerie in her lingerie draw.  You don’t have to think about what you’re putting on.  Yes you need that nude lingerie if you’re wearing something sheer, but otherwise?  And if you’re in a hurry I’ll bet the first thing you pull on is a black bra.

You’re wavering over your waning New Year’s Resolution to get fit and every morning is a hurry.  So now’s the time to do something completely different and go for colour.  Wear it under a black dress and know that no-one else knows.  If a peek of colour shows who cares.  It’s more likely to cheer up your day I promise.

If you’re thinking of splashing out on some gorgeously bright lingerie remember that it’s the colours that go first, as stores tend to buy more volume of the neutrals.  Also I’ve only included bras and chemises here, click through to the pages and on most of them you’ll find other items to go with.
