Let’s agree, buying new lingerie is always a great idea! Wear the right lingerie and it can give you the confidence to conquer the world. From sexy Brazilian cuts to cheeky shorts, push-up bras to triangle tops, what is the most flattering lingerie for you? Just like any other clothing, different styles of lingerie suit different body types better.
The best lingerie for your body shape
Before you buy anything, remember that comfortable lingerie is key. You can wear beautiful knickers, but if they pinch your hips, they’re not going to feel or look very flattering. If you’re not sure about sizing, read our advice on how to measure your bra size and try these tricks.
Triangle Shape (Wider lower body)
Balance out your smaller upper body by wearing a fuller, padded bra that provides more volume at the top. Try knickers that will cover your bum with a low cut, like briefs or shorts.
Inverted Triangle Shape (Wider upper body)
Find a bra that offers full support, or try the balconette which won’t add to your size. High-waisted knickers are ideal for more support around your middle, otherwise the sexy Brazilian is your cut.
Hourglass Shape (Balanced lower and upper body)
Go for good support and show off your curves with the plunge or balconette bras. High-waisted bottoms are very flattering for bigger hips, while high-legged briefs can look really attractive.
Add some volume to your bust with a push-up bra or try something playful with colour and frills to give a fuller illusion. The sexy Brazilian cut, thongs and cheeky shorts knickers are all great options for the athletic shape.
