Monochrome is a staple trend that is close to my heart. I wear this trend alot as it is so versatile and chic.The Corded Lace Set with Padded Longline bra is a great take on the monchrome trend. The lace and the gold detailing add interest and the long line shape almost make it wearable for a night out. I am really tempted to wear this under a sheer blouse with high waisted jeans? How'd you think that'll look?
On the other side of the coin, a white blouse is a must in any ladies undies draw. I went for the Ornamental Embroidery Multiway Longline Balcony bra. This is because it is a multi way bra meaning I can remove the straps, for strapless tops and dresses. Also I can adjust the straps for other types of tops, such as a cross back top. Practical and stylish.
Now I am a bit of a Dr jekyll/Mr Hyde when it comes to underwear. I wear really pretty bras, but my undies, most of the time are not that interesting, especially since I wear alot of bodycon dress and skinny jeans. So think plain thongs and high waisted seamless panties. Speaking of seamless panties, these 2 Pack Firm Control Cotton Rich Full Briefs are good are smoothing out the tummy area and removing VPL.
BRIGHTS AND SUMMER FLORALS
It wouldn't be summer without summer florals and brights. Recently, I have been trying to push myself into a more interesting colour palette when it comes to lingerie. That being said, I decided to go full out with the Lucy Lace Underwired Padded Plunge Bra in sunset. I love this bra, it is so comfy and bright, and summer ready.
In true Jess fashion, I had to go with something floral. However, I wanted to step away from the whole padded bra thing, as when it is hot it gets easily uncomfortable. So I chose the Floral Non-Padded Balcony. I can honestly say that this is the first floral bra and unpadded bra, that I have had in a while. Let me tell you, it felt amazing and kinda freeing.
Finally pastels, are more spring but I like them anyway. I wish I had more pastel bras and these are so pretty. The 2 Pack Embroidered Padded Plunge Bras add a good alternative to the typical plunge bras. Not only are they lime and pale lilac, but the embroidery is subtle and pretty.
So these are my summer lingerie essentials from Marks &Spencer. What are yours?
