Got a date night dilemma? Our lingerie experts answer your top queries when it comes to choosing lingerie for Valentine’s Day that fits and flatters, without a hint of tackiness…
There are no set rules when it comes to your choice of date night lingerie, but it’s all about making sure that you feel glamorous and confident about what’s underneath your date night outfit. When making your decision, it’s far more important to think about what will make you feel good on the night, rather than what a stereotypical Valentine’s Day lingerie set should look like. You know yourself better than anyone, so think about your favourite fits and which colours complement your skin tone, hair and eye colour.
Also consider what you’ll be doing on date night too, so that you choose the lingerie that’s going to be appropriate for the activity. For example, if you’re planning a cinema and dinner date, you may not want to feel restricted by control pants if you’re looking forward to watching a film followed by a cosy candlelit meal. However, if you’re looking forward to a fun galentine’s night out with some friends, then some shape-enhancing lingerie will be perfect below your little black dress. Our retro-inspired high waist shape control pants are ideal for making sure you’re feeling comfortable and confident on any glamorous date night.
The go-to colour palette for Valentine’s Day is typically soft and romantic, so think pink with lingerie sets or printed bras and knickers in this shade. The soft tones, flattering fits and pretty prints on our new ladies’ matching underwear sets are perfect for date night. Our matching underwear sets come in a range of prints, including floral and animal print bras to suit your style. Pretty lace underwear is also ideal for date night and we’ve got plenty of lace lingerie sets or lace trim bras and pants to choose from.
Feeling confident in underwear is all about finding your fit, so make sure you know your measurements before you go shopping for date night underwear. Use our lingerie style guide and bra fit guide to find your perfect fit before you start browsing our range of bra styles and remember that you can take advantage of our free in-store bra fitting service too.
When deciding on your date night underwear, choose a shape or style that enhances the parts of your body you love. Consider a strapless bra to show off your shoulders or a pair of high waisted pants to emphasise your waist. Feel fabulous in printed shapewear that enhances those curves or choose a pretty underwear set in your favourite colour to give you a confidence boost.
With so many styles to choose from it can be overwhelming choosing a new bra or lingerie set that’s right for you. As we alluded to earlier, our lingerie fit guide explains all about the various bra styles you can choose from and our bra fit guide shows how to measure yourself accurately to find your bra size.
Matching underwear sets are not only ideal for date night but can make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Once you find the fit that is most suitable for your size and shape, you can choose a bra that has matching briefs available in the style that suits you best, including high waisted, high leg or bikini style bottoms. If you prefer to clash your colours and prints, our range of lingerie separates has pretty bras, including padded bras, plunge bras and underwired bras for some added support, as well as non-padded bras and T-shirt bras for relaxed, everyday wear. Our ladies’ knickers and pants come in a range of styles and fits too, including lace thongs, high leg briefs and high waist control briefs in sizes 8-24.
