Hailing from the 50s amid pin-up inspired silhouettes and a new found love for lingerie, underwired bras have long been a quintessential underwear staple. Now they can be found within everything from plunge bras and balconettes to strapless bras and full cups, giving you shape, support, and plenty of style.
If it's classic, everyday support you're after, underwired bras are a wardrobe essential, and the t-shirt bra is a casual favourite. Seamless and fancy-free, these simple designs are created to sit subtly underneath everything from form-fitting pencil dresses to stretchy tees. Neutral shades are the classic take on the design, elegant and understated when worn with a matching thong or seamless knickers. For an alternative interpretation of the underwired bras, look to bright colours, as well as lace detailing and contrasting straps. 90s style slip dresses and cold shoulder tops call for strapless bras to make the most of their simplicity, and underwired bras will give you all the support you need. Match yours with french knickers to complete the sultry set.
If you're all about making an impact, get your plunge bras and balconettes at the ready. A push-up, plunge style underwired bras will give you an enviable shape that is perfect for v-necks and round necks, whether on tees, dresses or sweaters. Scalloped edges, lacy fringing and sheer panels all add some further sultry appeal to this style, exquisite for bedtime with matching knickers and stockings. Balconette underwired bras are this season's perfect partner in the underwear as outerwear trend. Their bralet style shape is ideal for flashing beneath open shirts and blouses.
