As we head into the new season, we’re dreaming of a fresh spring wardrobe - so where better to start than with the basics, and a brand new set of lingerie? We know how tricky shopping for intimates can be, so we have enlisted the help of our experienced lingerie buyers for their top tips on the styles to wear this season.
Every woman should experience the feeling of a brand new set of well-fitting lingerie. Here at Fenwick, we pride ourselves in helping you find the perfect fit - from our experienced lingerie buyers through to our helpful experts offering complimentary bra fitting services in-store.
The new season's styles come in a range of cuts and designs depending on your outfit and occasion, and will easily slot into your existing collection. Whether you need a plunging shape from brands such as Elle Macpherson and Calvin Klein or Lepel's comfortable t-shirt bras and lace details from DKNY, plus silhouette-skimming solutions from Sloggi.
We spoke to a selection of our lingerie buyers to find out which styles they're favouring and why.
###### PLUNGE NECKLINES
Lingerie Buyer at Fenwick Brent Cross Angela Bryanton explains: ''I love this season's deep plunge bra, it's perfect for spring's deep v-neck tops and dresses.” Wear with wrap dresses to create a plunging cleavage that still offers support in all the right places. Jo Sutton, the Lingerie Buyer at Bracknell and Kingston, is a fan of Wonderbra's latest Refined Glamour set, which "creates an enhanced cleavage effect with a structured lace design in a rich arabesque."
