We’re well into the Christmas party season now, perhaps you’ve even attended one or two. When considering your Christmas outfit’s how much of that thought was about the underwear? Not a lot? Don’t worry we anticipated that!
When we talk about underwear, we think about bras—how we’re wearing the wrong size, how they should really fit. Underwear, however, is often overlooked,” Choosing the right type of underwear truly sets the foundation for your entire day. Taking more time to be aware of what you’re wearing can go a long way in helping you look great.
We have worked with five of our biggest suppliers and models from the lingerie industry to bring you the do’s and don’ts. So let’s get to work and correct—the eight most common underwear mistakes you’re probably making, but had no clue.
1. You’re wearing a size too small.
Now is the time to put vanity aside and go a size up in your clothes with your underwear! If they are too tight they can pinch and give you the dreaded muffin top or VPL (visible panty line), not to mention increase your chances of nether-region unpleasantness like a UTI or yeast infection.
2. You’re wearing the wrong underwear with your outfit.
A string may prevent V.P.L, but it’s not always the best underwear for your body-con clothes. If it’s made from textured material, for example, it will still show through a tight, lightweight dress. A more appropriate choice, in this case, might be a seamless boyshort, maybe one with slightly longer “legs” to prevent ride-up. Wearing a high-waisted skirt? Try a high-waisted brief vs. a low-rise bikini to help smooth out the tummy area.
3. Not trying before buying.
Fit is essential when it comes to undergarments. Even the most swoon-worthy bra can lose its “lustre” when the sizing is off. Bra shopping, in many ways, is very similar to shopping for a pair of jeans — every pair fits differently, especially across brands, so trying them on is key. We offer free shipping on orders over ?100. and returns on garments, we’re always available to answer your questions too, as we have knowledge regarding the brands.
4. Not following the care instructions properly
Always read the care instructions. Lace, silk and satin underwear and bras need a little extra love when it comes to washing, and shouldn’t be treated in the same way as their cotton counterparts. Delicate fabrics and constructions often require the use of cold water, hand-washing techniques, mild soap and air drying to maintain their like-new appearance.
5. Not getting rid of worn out pieces
Yes, it can be hard to part with your favourite pieces of clothing, but there comes a time when you just have to “let go”. Bras and underwear that are wearing thin or sporting holes should be ditched and upgraded.
6. You’re not spending enough on your lingerie.
It’s tempting to save money on your lingerie and spend it on that pair of jeans instead—after all, that’s what everyone will see. But even if you are the only one who ever sees your underwear, remember that this is the foundation to your entire look. The right underwear has the power to make or break how you walk, talk, look and feel throughout any given day. A ?5.00 pair of underwear may seem like a great deal to start with but probably won’t stand the test of comfort, or time. The cheaper the underwear, the lower the quality—expect materials that are rough against your skin, exposed seams that dig-in as well as show through clothes, underwear that’s not lined properly, or ill-fit that can cause ride-up. Good quality underwear, on the other hand, will be made with first-rate materials for comfortable, all-day wear, superior attention to fit and will hold both its appearance and fit after numerous washings.
7. You’re wearing light underwear with your dark-colored clothing.
Most people (we hope!) know not to wear dark underwear through light-colored clothing, but did you know you can also see light underwear through dark-colored clothing? Especially if a camera flash is involved. So if you’re wearing a black dress, it’s best to stick to black lingerie.
8. You’re wearing mesh underwear in the summer.
It may seem like mesh underwear is more breathable, but you may be surprised to hear that it’s not. Synthetic materials such as polyester hold and trap heat, moisture and bacteria—putting you at greater risk for yeast infections and UTIs, or just feeling uncomfortable all day. In the summer, it’s best to wear underwear made with natural, breathable materials such as cotton or bamboo that absorb and/or wick moisture away from the skin.
Wearing a specialized garment designed to support a woman’s breasts may date back to ancient Greece. Women wore an apodesmos (Greek: ?????????), later st?thodesm? (Gr: ??????????), mastodesmos (Gr: ???????????) and mastodeton (Gr: ??????????), all meaning “breast-band”, a band of wool or linen that was wrapped across the breasts and tied or pinned at the back.
In 2008, archaeologists working at the Lengberg Castle in Eastern Tyrol, Austria discovered 2700 fragments of textile, among them four bras. Two of them were modern-looking bras; the other two were undershirts with incorporated cups. All of the bras were made from linen. The two modern-looking bras were somewhat similar to a modern longline brassiere; the cups were made from two pieces of linen sewn with fabric that extended down to the bottom of the torso with a row of six eyelets for fastening with a lace or string. The brassiere also had two shoulder straps and was decorated with lace between the cleavage, one of them possessing needle lace. The radiocarbon dating results showed that the four bras stemmed from the period between 1440 and 1485.
An award-winning ad for R & G Corset Company from the back cover of the October 1898 Ladies’ Home Journal depicted a proper foundation garment for women.
From the 16th century onwards, the undergarments of wealthier women in the Western world were dominated by the corset, which pushed the breasts upwards. In the later part of the 19th century, clothing designers began experimenting with various alternatives to the corset, trying things like splitting the corset into multiple parts: a girdle-like restraining device for the lower torso, and devices that suspended the breasts from the shoulder to the upper torso.
The German Christine Hardt patented the first modern brassiere in 1889. Sigmund Lindauer from Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt, Germany, developed a brassiere for mass production in 1912 and patented it in 1913. It was mass-produced by Mechanischen Trikotweberei Ludwig Maier und Cie. in Böblingen, Germany. In the United States, Mary Phelps Jacob received a patent in 1914 for the first bra design that is recognized as the basis for modern brassieres. Mass production of bras in the early 20th Century made the garment widely available to women in the United States, England, Western Europe, and other countries influenced by western fashion. With metal shortages, World War I encouraged the end of the corset.
Like other clothing, brassieres were initially sewn by small production companies and supplied to various retailers. The term “cup” was not used to describe bras until 1916, and manufacturers relied on stretchable cups to accommodate different sized breasts.:73 Women with larger or pendulous breasts had the choice of long-line bras, built-up backs, wedge-shaped inserts between the cups, wider straps, power Lastex, firm bands under the cup, and even light boning.
In October 1932, the S.H. Camp and Company correlated the size and pendulousness of a woman’s breasts to letters of the alphabet, A through D. Camp’s advertising featured letter-labeled profiles of breasts in the February 1933 issue of Corset and Underwear Review. In 1937, Warner began to feature cup sizing in its products. Adjustable bands were introduced using multiple hook and eye closures in the 1930s.:101
Although in popular culture the invention of the bra is frequently attributed to men, women have played a large part in bra design and manufacture, accounting for half of the patents filed. There is an urban legend that the brassiere was invented by a man named Otto Titzling (“tit sling”) who lost a lawsuit with Phillip de Brassiere (“fill up the brassiere”). This originated with the 1971 book Bust-Up: The Uplifting Tale of Otto Titzling and the Development of the Bra and was propagated in a comedic song from the movie Beaches.
By the time World War II ended, most fashion-conscious women in Europe and North America were wearing brassieres. From that point forward, women in Asia, Africa, and Latin America adopted the brassiere.

It helps you to feel good about yourself and also look great. Here at Lustre we don’t just have sets that are just bra’s and knickers, we have sets including babydoll’s and chemises.I have picked out four of my favourite sets from staying safe to being slightly more daring.

Feeling good about yourself is something that we believe in at Lustre. If you feel good about yourself and your body then you will be happier in yourself. The set is sexy but is not too over the top.

This is one of my favourite lingerie sets at Lustre. The Gracya Cindy is a set that you can wear for everyday. The delicate use of the mesh over the pink satin design and the pink bows allows the set to be sexy and innocent. The bra is a push up so gives you the chance to enhance your assets. This set is sold separately but is not expensive at all. Keep it innocent but intriguing.
Avanua Arya Cami Lingerie Set in Black is a perfect set to wear at night. The silky material makes it a perfect item to sleep in and be comfortable whilst also looking sexy. This set is really good value for money. The set allows you to look good and feel good by providing you with support and also comfort.
We love this sexy Beauty Night Claudia Floral Lace Top and Thong Lingerie Set. This set is available in black and white. Feel sexy in this gorgeous set made with floral lace. The top and thong are both included in the price making it a must have. The black lace makes it more daring than some of our other pieces but still classy.

If you want to perceive your best possible image image – a bad bra can ruin a great look! So here are our top tips on effectively investing in your chest:
1. Measure Your Own Bra Size
Getting a professional to determine your accurate bra size can be expensive whilst being an essential to your everyday lingerie. This can prove to be a real hassle. How do I to measure yourself free at home with no expense spared with just a tape measure?
To determine the underbust size, measure around top of waist where underwire would usually be placed. Then add 4 inches to this figure. If this is an odd number round up as appose to down a size.
For overbust area measure the biggest/fullest part of your breast. this will tell you your cup size. If the bust measurement is: same as your bra size, your Cup size is A. 1in. more gives Cup size B 2in. more gives Cup size C 3in. more gives Cup size D 4in. more gives Cup size DD 5in. more gives Cup size E and so on.
2. Prioritise Quality
Many people find it tempting to pick up the first bra they see that has a cheap price tag. However, sparing the expense in your lingerie can boast a number of advantages. There are many factors that are important when choosing a bra, especially the bra size, comfort and quality.
You generally get what you pay for with bras so invest in something that will last you. After all one bra that you’ll treasure and cling to is of more value than three bad quality non-wearable ones!
3. Band Size
It is important to get the correct band size by not tightening it too much. The band should comfortably fit of the loosest adjustments. Bras are designed like this so that when the elastic begins to loosen, you are able to tighten them to your usual size. The correct band size is the smallest you can comfortably wear. If this doesn’t feel right, reassess your bra measurements.
