ARE YOU SLIM, ATHLETIC, CURVACEOUS? FIND YOUR PERFECT FIT!
Lingerie is more than just something you wear in the bedroom. It has the ability to give a woman confidence, even when no one else sees it. When you dress well from head to toe, you feel better! You're ready for anything! But the wrong piece of lingerie can ruin a day in one slip of a bra strap or visible bunch in the back.
Why is it that we all wear lingerie, yet so many of us have such a hard time finding the right lingerie for our body type? To avoid these lingerie woes, Bluebella has created a guide to the most flattering lingerie designs to help women choose the perfect lingerie fit for every body shape and figure.
For a curvaceous figure, we cannot deny that full coverage bras offer a lot of support. Now, do not let “full coverage” be a turn off - there are lots of sexy options with this bra type. A bra with lace is a pretty option and offers smoothness where you need it.
If you don’t like the idea of a full coverage bra, a bra with a demi cup is a great alternative! These styles are perfect when you want to wear something with a lower cut. This way you can show off your curves without losing a supportive fit. A couple of rules of thumb when looking for that perfect bra; the thicker the band in the back and the straps, the more sturdy the fit. If there's a bulge above the cup, either the bra's too small or the style may not offer the coverage you need! Refer to our bra fitting guide for more help with this.
When you're looking for lingerie bottoms, try high-waist fits! These styles are really flattering on a curvy figure. Garter belts and suspenders are also great for flattening a stomach. If you don’t want a constricting style, full-coverage briefs are practical and sexy at the same time.
If you have more of a slim build, Bluebella has just the right figure-flattering lingerie for you too! For the girls with fewer curves, we have lingerie examples to draw attention right where you want it. With this shape, you can get away with more frills and less function in lingerie types.
If your lingerie doesn't need to lay seamlessly under clothes, extra detail, such as guipure and ruffles, can really draw attention and enhance. It's also a good idea to go for underwire and push up because these options can really give you the lift that you need, and a bra with side padding can create amazing cleavage!
For the ladies with an “athletic” body type, we recommend lots of details! Lace is always a pretty option. Bralettes are great for this shape because they add a soft shape to a strong build. An athletic figure looks amazing in form fitting bottoms, as they hug your curves and give shape to narrow hips, while suspenders cinch the waist and add a curve.
Finally, for our “pear-shaped” women, we recommend lingerie that draws the eyes up. With this figure, it's helpful to create curves in the right places. Lingerie that highlights your top section and smooths the hips is ideal for a pear-shaped woman. Colour blocking or bra detail can really draw attention. Similar to the “straight” figure, ruffles can also add that extra je ne sais quoi.
If you like a little more support we recommend a structured lingerie set; it'll give you coverage on the bottom and lift in the chest area. Lace briefs are a great option for bottoms, as they give you plenty of coverage without giving up that flirty feel!
There are great lingerie options for every shape. The important thing to remember is that you can dress for your body type. Each figure is beautiful and unique, just like the lingerie that will flatter you most! In addition, we always recommend being professionally fitted for your lingerie. It's so important to have the perfect band and cup size in a bra, and it can make all the difference!
