‘Whats Under My Yours Clothing Dress?’ Now hows that for a title?
A little tongue in cheek perhaps but when you’re wearing a statement dress such as theLimited Collection Black Floral Print Cold Shoulder Dress, its important to consider what you’ll wear underneath it before purchasing.
When I had a fancy work event and a wedding come up in my calendar for autumn, I knew that this dress would be the perfect outfit to wear. The scuba style jersey fabric is a little heavier than a lot of my other dresses and it makes this dress hang beautifully. Its a really flattering fit with a beautifully feminine shape that makes me feel so pretty and girly when wearing it.
I like to pair it with strappy heels such as these ones from Primark and I love to pop on a shawl across my shoulders and arms for when it gets cold. This dress also looks awesome with tights, little ankle boots and a black waterfall jacket too.
I really love the neckline and the way the frill detail falls over the cut out shoulder but those strappy details definitely make it impossible to wear a normal bra with it.
When wearing a dress or top like this then I’d recommend checking out the shape wear range from Yours Clothing. They have a wide range of lingerie to suit many styles, budgets and concerns. Great shape wear and the right underwear can really work wonders underneath outfits as they can smooth and contour the body, make your clothes look even better, help your posture and give you a confidence boost.
If you’re going strapless to suit a dress like this then you could check out the Black Seamless Surefit Bandeau Bra with Soft Padded Full Cups. This is a great piece to wear with any tops that have straps or cut outs as they’ll not be seen at all. However it is incredibly small fitting so you may find that you’ll need to go up a couple of sizes.
By comparison, the Nude Multiway Lace Bra, or the same but inBlack is a much better option for most as it is a standard strapless bra and offers more support and structure than the bandeau style. Sizing on this piece is on the large side, particularly in the cup in my opinion, so I’d suggest ordering a couple of different sizes just to be on the safe side. With this bra, you’ll have the option of wearing it with straps too as they are included, making it great for wearing with other tops and dresses as well.
When it comes to the bottom half of my body, I absolutely love to wear the Black and Nude Floral Lace High Waist Brief that I discovered quite recently and any opportunity to wear them underneath my dresses, I take.
They’re high waisted and elasticated so they hug my body and they stay in place without rolling down like most other pairs of knickers do on me. They’re supportive, hold me in a little and enhance my shape a little by smoothing everything over and disguising the dip of my belly button which I really like when I’m wearing clothes that are tighter across my tummy.
I’m a huge advocate of body confidence and theres some pieces out there that have really helped me to feel even more confident in the clothes that I wear; high waisted knickers and a great strapless bra are definitely one of them!
