When switching to my Summer essentials, I also switch my lingerie drawer. With Summertime
comes heat, thus the sweating so out comes lightweight fabrics, white tees, super skinny straps,
sheer fabrics, linens which all mandates different underpinnings. So what lingerie should be worn?
Here are my go-to lingerie must haves:
BRAS ( Bright, Colored, Lace, Pattern ) – For your white tank tops and cotton tees, nude bras are
not the only option. Go for bright colors, rose pattern. leopard prints and stripes, the many options of choice.
TIP: Pair a bright bra with a white tank top or cotton tee
Bright Summery color really pop out from under a sheer top so play up with lingerie in a subtle way.
It’s not about showing it all and being that scandalous girl. Monochrome, neon or candy-colored bras
are brilliant under a light linen or lace top. Also, a white lace bra looks elegant under a crisp white shirt
and bandeau works well with an unbuttoned shirt, cropped tops and deeply cut sleeveless tees.
TIP: Match color of bra with top or any color that works with outfit.
Do you like your bra straps purposefully peeking out? Some do and some don’t but not every place or
occasion is appropriate for your personal peep show. Your workplace, four-star dinners or weddings
are places you wouldn’t want people noticing your under-pinning. Places such as family outings
to water parks, barbeque, summer festivals, the movies and amusement parks are more suitable.
These can be worn with your racer back, strapless and backless tops.
Small chested women can easily get away with a flimsy lace bra but for my larger busted fashionistas
who needs more support can opt for a long line bra. Also, I would advise that you ensure you’re
wearing your correct bra size as this can cause some fashion mishaps and also medical problems. READ HERE
Bra lose their elasticity after a few washes, so ladies treat yourselves and get a new pair.
TIP: For straps that tends to move around, pin with a small safety pin inside of your top.
LONG LINE BRA
UNDER SHORTS – When wearing short dresses, skirts, linen pants, skorts, rompers, and short shorts,
having some under shorts are the perfect little additions to your lingerie drawer. Take a look below:
CORSETS AND BODYSUITS – No one like to be wearing a close-fitting dress and have slight bulges here and there.
This fashion disaster can be helped by adding a delicate corset or bodysuit to your body con dresses. You want to
keep it light and airy, preferably a lace or sheer material to prevent from getting too hot. Also, bodysuits can be
worn with your rompers and maxi-dresses or wherever extra coverage is needed. Take a look at the images below:

Let lingerie be your muse, keeping it bright while still looking good, they are the perfect
little additions to your lingerie drawer.
