Choosing the Perfect Lingerie for Your Bodyshape

Small, large, petite, broad and just downright curvy. No woman is exactly the same and so choosing lingerie to suit your unique bodyshape is somewhat of a fine art. But, does it really have to be? Lingerie is designed to make you feel good about yourself, attractive and ultimately sensual.

So, here are some great lingerie styles that can cater to your bodyshape; whatever it might be.

The Suspender Belt Look

Have you been meaning to try something new lately? For many women, the suspender belt looks far-fetched and little bit too complicated to attempt. But, in actual fact, it is fairly simple and can provide you with the ultimate luxurious look. Usually paired with a number of other garments in this blog – such as the corset and bustier – it feels and looks great.

A fabulous example of this is the Amaya Rose Strap Suspender from Bordelle. Feminine, luxurious and embroidered with Swiss Tulle is paired with the brands signature silk elastic strapping. This has been redeveloped for both strength and practicality, with great adjustability for any bodyshape.

A Classic Corset

The corset is a classic. For a number of reasons it’s great for any bodyshape, not least of all because it can help to reduce your waist size and camouflage the unwanted bulge. Ties and lace can also help to enhance the natural hourglass figure.

A good way to try the styling of the corset is through the Dolci Follie Isetan Long Line Top. This silky satin piece features the flattering sweetheart neckline, with ruched black straps and jewelled details on the fastening clasps. It can be worn both strapless or as a halter top for that little bit of added support.

A Bustier Garment

Similar to the lingerie design, the focus of the bustier is to uplift and enhance the bust area. It adds curviness with firmness to the breasts, working in a similar way to the push-up bra. This type of lingerie is perfect for accentuating any bodyshape.

If you love the idea of a bustier and it’s potential benefit to your overall look, then this Chite Sassy Bustier Bra. The gold velvet and plisse fabric are both precious and elegant, adding a sophisticated touch to the benefit of the padded bra cups. The beauty of this bustier means that it is perfect both underneath your clothes or as a festive outfit for a night out in itself. The tie behind the neck means that it fits the bodyshape of any woman.

Spotlight On: Yes Master

Here at Dolci Follie, we love keeping our eye out for the next big thing in luxury lingerie. And so this week we bring you Yes Master, a brand with nearly a decade of excellence in the luxury lingerie scene under their belt. The brand is focussed upon ultra high-end couture looks, made exquisite by the use of Parisian lace and Solstiss lace in many of their creations.

London based, Yes Master have their finger on the pulse of all things current and use this to explore the intimate world with their unique collection. For a feminine touch with a wild side that references nature this is the collection for you.

So, without further ado, here are a couple of the best reasons to check out this brand today:

Show Stopping Gown

For many, the idea of wearing a gown in the bedroom is pure extravagance. Ignore these naysayers. There is nothing better than a touch of extravagance in your luxury lingerie and so adding a show-stopping gown to your wardrobe should be an easy decision to make.

So, why not take the leap with this sheer embroidered night dress from Yes Master? This Full-Length Show Stopping Gown is a breathtaking delight, sure to make a splash whenever you choose to wear it. With a beautiful bodice and flowing, sheer, skirt this is a piece which you won’t want to get out of any time soon. It’s a look worth investing in, especially if you are looking for something a little different to add to your boudoir looks.

Strappy Bird Embroidery

For a dress with something new to offer, look no further than the Strappy T-Shirt Bird Embroidery Dress from Yes Master.

The real standout feature of this dress, without a doubt, is the stunning embroidery. From the intricate flowers to the birds that seem ready to fly off into the sunset, it is truly a dress that is alive thanks to the detail. No expense has been spared and it is obvious through the beautiful craftsmanship. If you want a piece that is one of a kind – truly, there is nothing else quite like it in luxury lingerie – then this is the dress for you.

So, whether your style is sheerer rather than embroidered or vice versa, these dresses are a picture-perfect addition to any lingerie drawer. Of course, you can also shop the full range of Dolci Follie lingerie or our gowns in particular if these two don’t quite tick the right boxes.

Making Lingerie Part of Your Everyday Wardrobe

Lingerie makes us feel beautiful. It makes us feel empowered. It helps us to love ourselves just that little bit more. With such powers held within it’s a wonder that more of us don’t wear lingerie every single day, even outside the bedroom. And why shouldn’t we?

With that in mind, what can you do to make lingerie a truly decadent part of your day to day wardrobe?

Bodysuit Outerwear

If you are looking to make a daring statement at work or at drinks, then there is no doubt that wearing a bodysuit as outerwear is the move to make. Of course, you wouldn’t wear it on its own! A beautiful lace bodysuit paired with either high-waisted pants or skirts can look absolutely gorgeous. As well as being a powerful statement that shows your unmistakable confidence for the whole world to see.

For this look, we recommend the Serafina Body from Belle et Bonbon. Delicate and absolutely a joy to behold, the lace and design is sure to wow anyone that gets a glimpse. This is an ideal piece to wear (with the necessary covers underneath) for a semi-formal evening with a pair of smart, high-waisted, trousers.

Collar Up

Popular in the 90s, the collar is something which has definitely been making a comeback in 2018. This emerging style means that there is plenty of opportunities to introduce something which is usually only reserved for the bedroom into your everyday wardrobe.

Bordelle’s Amaya Red Strap Collar is a cheeky little way to unleash the devil in you on a day to day basis. And it can be perfectly paired – in secret, of course! – with other pieces such as the Amaya Rose Balconette Bra and Amaya Rose Thong. The vibrant red is luscious and will certainly complement a range of outfit choices, whilst still going under the radar. This can be the ever so subtle way to wear your lingerie as outerwear, so to speak.

Casual Wear

Not everything that we consider to be luxury lingerie is necessarily sexy. For example, there are plenty of kaftans and other types of loungewear that we often associate with the backdrop of a sunny holiday. But are in actual fact very versatile and perfect for a number of occasions.

One of our new arrivals is the Cuba Mid Kaftan from Holland Street. Beautiful, stunning, simply outstanding are a few words that can be used to describe this piece. Handmade in London, it is typically designed for lounging on the beach and relaxing whilst on holiday. However, the beauty of the piece means that it can absolutely be worn for an evening of fun and laughter as well.

All in all, there’s nothing to say that lingerie shouldn’t be a part of your everyday wardrobe. In fact, here at Dolci Follie, you can find a number of great pieces in our full range to do just that. So, what are you waiting for? Add a little bit of extra luxury into your wardrobe today.
