Read on to learn how to get the best out of your lingerie collection.
When it comes to lingerie, getting your bits and bobs in order is serious business. But it turns out the nation is a bit baffled when it comes to their undergarments.
80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size!
Here are the 10 lingerie mistakes you could be making and how to fix them without getting your knickers in a twist.
50% of women have complaints about how their brassiere fits. This is often because bra cups are too baggy, leaving you vulnerable to a cheeky nip-slip.
The opposite problem to the baggy bra, is the quad boob. This occurs when bra cups are too tight, causing a muffin-top effect which appears to double your assets.
We’re all guilty of dismissing the adventurous and luxurious lingerie in favour of plain cotton pants.
Less than 20% of women feel brave enough for thongs.
It’s important to have an array of bras to help with various outfits. Here are our top four bra must-haves to complement any outfit.
The essentials kit: T-shirt bra, Plunge bra, Sports bra, Multi-way bra
Times are changing
Also, breasts change size due to weight gain or loss and periods. The average woman will wear six different bra sizes throughout her life.
Another common mistake is that women are clinging to old bras for too long.
The age-old problem of the Visible Panty Line is feared throughout the land. Watch out for the VPL, especially when stepping out in a skin-tight dress.
The dreaded muffin top is again a result of the skin-tight dress, it is simply an unflattering belly bulge over your knickers.
It’s bad for bras if you hook on the tightest clasp immediately after buying. The tighter clasps are there to help when your bra eventually loses elasticity.
Bras stretch 2-3 inches in their lifetime.
As much as we’d hate to admit it, on average the majority of women wash their bras only 6 times a year!
While year-round underwear is a safe investment, there’s nothing like Christmas themed knickers or a special set on Valentine’s Day to get you in the spirit!
We hope this helps you avoid making any slip-ups with your smalls!
