FLATTERING UNDERWEAR FOR PEAR-SHAPED BODIES
Pear-shaped or triangle shapes have narrower upper bodies with a wider lower body. To give more shape to your smaller upper half, padded bras can be an excellent choice for providing an added boost to your cleavage.
Or, you could try a multiway bra, this way you can wear the bra straps exactly how you like to complement your narrower shoulders.
The most flattering lingerie for the curvier hips that pear shapes tend to have are high leg knickers. Choosing this style will enhance your bum and be super flattering! Thongs are also always a great choice for pear shapes - flaunt your assets ladies!
THE BEST LINGERIE FOR INVERTED TRIANGLE BODY SHAPES
If you have wide set shoulders, a fuller bust and narrow hips, you have what is known as an ‘inverted triangle’ body shape!
The most flattering lingerie for this body type is a bra that offers full support and has thicker straps, such as a balconette bra – they are so flattering!
When it comes to the best knickers for your body shape, a high waisted knicker style will work perfectly!
FLATTERING LINGERIE FOR HOURGLASS BODY SHAPES
Hourglass body shapes are curvy, but balanced. Think a fuller bust, hips and bum with a sinched waist.
If you have an hourglass shape, the most flattering underwear for your curvy body will be pieces that accentuate your curves and bum!
For your bottom half, the best lingerie for bigger hips is high waisted or high leg knicker styles!
It’s not all just bras and knickers, though! A bodysuit - especially one with dipped front detailing to show off your sinched waist - will be oh so flattering for your figure!
THE BEST UNDERWEAR FOR ATHLETIC BODY TYPES
Those with athletic body shapes have a straighter silhouette and a smaller bust, so you are going to want the most flattering lingerie for your smaller bust shape!
If you want to create more cleavage and give your bust a boost, then a push up bra is always a great shout.
When it comes to the most flattering knickers for your body type, Brazilian knickers are a great option, or you can’t go wrong with a thong - they really are the most flattering knicker style - we even have a whole guide dedicated to thongs!
