By now, we all know the magic powers of shapewear, and how, as we always say, getting that ‘wow’ factor with any outfit begins with the underwear.
Kim Kardashian is the proud owner of perhaps the planet’s most notorious curves and she has famously confessed her love of shapewear, even parading them on her TV show.
She’s not alone, it would seem the secret to Hollywood glamour is a firm foundation of well-engineered underwear. But with some outfits, it just doesn’t always look as flattering as it makes you feel.

And let’s be honest, sometimes we want the support, but we also want that secret seductress feel underneath and that is often hard to achieve with clever technical focused underwear. It’s that classic Bridget Jones dilemma.
The Hollywood Feel
Aside from the sucking and squeezing of our bottom halves, a bountiful bosom also needs some good support, and that’s not easy to find – especially if you’re looking for style and comfort.
However, plus size bras don’t need to be only about the engineering; sure that’s important, but it doesn't have to sacrifice style. Just take a look at this stunningly delicate plus size lingerie set by Curvy Kate.
With summer on its way and the sun already coming out to play, finding a great bra has never been more important. Not just for practical reasons either, when we’re putting so much effort into our summer style with pretty sundresses and strappy tops, the last thing we want is an unsightly bra strap ruining our look.
You could always make a statement with your straps and opt for something like this Fantasie Belle large size bra from Fantasie. The lace detailing on the top of the full cups and straps give it an elegant finish to ensure you feel supported yet sexy.
Alternatively, strapless bras are the perfect companion for summer tops, but are often hard to find in bigger bra sizes. This Panache Porcelain Bra ticks all the right boxes though and is perfect for any summer outfit. Its smooth t-shirt bra finish keeps clean lines under even the softest of fabrics and the low plunge cut makes it versatile for any neckline.
For something a little bit more special for those long summer nights, the Fantasie Samantha strapless bra is exactly what you need to look and feel fabulous.
So be uplifted this season with the strong support of some sensational underwear.
