Time to update your lingerie?

An essential part of your wardrobe; the bra is what we call your foundation garment. But when it comes to fit, many of us are wearing the wrong size. And don't you know it when the girls are not looking their best. Louise Hilsz has the tips and four styles you need now.




Go for a moulded cup. The bra should fit comfortably when fastened on the third hook; if you have spillage (double boob) at the front of the bra riding up at the back it’s the wrong size.

How to buy a bra



Every now and then you need a helping hand and that would be a push-up bra in lingerie circles. From an A-cup to DD-cup most women can benefit from a push-up bra - here's why. A push-up bra provides more support, security, and comfort than traditional bras and perfects the look of your breasts, which flatters an outfit.

The most on-trend undergarment right now is a bralette. We suggest the fit comes down to how you want to wear it. If you wish to have that cami-style fit (or will be wearing a bra underneath), go one size up for a more forgiving fit. If you would like support, go one size down, so it fits snug.

This is the date night look, and the bra every woman needs. Pretty, it gives you that perky look regardless of your cup size. While the temptation to buy black is always there, we love a hint of colour under a silk shirt of that sheer little black dress. Be brave!
