Foundation for any Outfit Starts with Lingerie
Now, I realise that we here at Ouh La La might be a tad biased on this topic (we really can’t help ourselves), but we do believe that any good outfit starts with the right lingerie. I’m sure that my fellow lingerie addicts out there can relate to that moment where, after having putting on a beautiful new lingerie set, or perhaps an old favourite, you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror, and feel absolutely incredible.
There’s just something about the combination of lacy underwear; stockings and suspenders; and at times a good waspie, that looks incredible on any body type. Beautiful lingerie always has a way of accentuating all your best features, while drawing attention away from those areas you might not be so thrilled about at the time. A waspie can do wonders on days when you’re feeling a bit bloated. The Lise Charmel Soir De Venise Waspie is just stunning too.
Wearing the perfect lingerie for different occasions
Aside from just looking good, each piece of lingerie has its own place in the set - and can be an invaluable addition to your outfit depending on the occasion.
It’s estimated that roughly 80% of women wear the wrong bra size, when in reality, taking time to find the perfect fit can make all the difference in giving you the right support, as well as streamlining your shape and making sure that your clothes hang just right.
On hot days or on special occasions, a strapless bra proves absolutely vital for pulling off certain outfits - and the right one can make all the difference in giving you the confidence you need to just focus on the day, without worrying about constant adjustments. The Marie Jo Jane Strapless Bra (the straps are removable) is a stunning bra.
Thongs can avoid unsightly pantie lines in tight dress & skirts, while stockings can give legs an effortlessly airbrushed look. Suspenders avoid the irritation of needing to constantly adjust tights that seem intent on creeping to your ankles, allowing you to move throughout your day with confidence.
Finally, on those days when a little extra tuck & pull is necessary - waspies & other body controlling lingerie can prove the unspoken heroes of your outfit, contouring & streamlining your curves to create a sensational base for whatever you choose to wear that day.
Wearing the perfect lingerie boosts confidence
Marilyn Monroe is quoted as saying that a smile is the best makeup a girl could wear, and frankly I couldn’t agree with her more: the best foundation for looking good is feeling great.
My favourite sets have a way of making me feel good about myself before I’ve even set foot out the bedroom door, and let’s face it, some days we need that kind of boost.
By setting the tone for the day in this way, with gorgeous lingerie and a lift in confidence, I find I tend to put more effort into my hair and makeup, and I usually end up picking out a better outfit than I might have done otherwise. That said, even when I do decide to play down my outfit for the day, there’s something so energizing about knowing that I’m wearing something beautiful underneath it all. On those days, it’s my own little secret, and that in its own merit puts me in a better mood.
