Lingerie That Directs Eyes Right Where You Want Them, And Not Where You Don’t
February 9, 2009
There’s zero reason to feel self-conscious in skimpy lingerie or worry that your well-endowed upper body isn’t well outfitted. Flattering lingerie options abound for every body type, and they’re easy to find if you know what to look for. Today on Parents.tv and SheZoom, we show you how to pinpoint the right pieces.
To play down your thighs, simply stick with longer gowns. Pick one with a lower neckline to draw attention upwards, like this satin gown from Jones New York ($26, was $38). If you want to show off your curves but keep them covered, Calvin Klein’s Lace Essentials Gown ($52) is the perfect option, with a body-conscious fit and below-the-knee length.
If you’re trying to hide a tummy, take one of two routes: disguise it in a short, drapey chemise ($110) – it plays up legs and glides past your middle. Or, smooth things over with a pretty piece of light-control shapewear; we like Flexees’ Smooth Back Cami ($38).
We’ve heard from plenty of big-busted women that they can’t find pretty bras in large sizes, but these lingerie brands Felina, Freya and Fantasie do make gorgeous bras in bigger sizes. Felina’s Harlow Full-Busted Demi Bra ($32) is affordable, supportive, and downright sexy. It comes in sizes up to 40DDD. The Freya Arabella Bra ($48) features pretty details like satin bows and embroidery, and goes up to size 38J. Fantasie’s Gabrielle Balcony Bra , also in sizes to 38J, could double as an everyday option under sweaters and dresses.
