Lingerie shopping is not something a lot of women enjoy. It is a bit of a hassle and can make you feel a little down. None of us have the perfect body. At least we don’t think we have. We tend to be very critical about the way we look. So, the last thing we want is to strip naked, try on various pieces of lingerie and have to look at ourselves in the mirror. But, every now and again, it’s got to be done.
If you want to look good in your clothes you need a good foundation. That means wearing a bra and briefs that fit properly, support your body and do not cut in and create ugly bulges.
Fortunately, there is an easy answer, which is to go online and order what you need from somewhere like Fashion World. Everyone feels more comfortable trying on underwear in the privacy of their own home. So, you would be silly not to at least try buying your lingerie online. I promise you it is far easier than you think.
But, to have any success at shopping for lingerie in this way there are a few things you must do. The first is to measure yourself properly. We all put on and lose weight regularly. Plus, having babies, changing our contraception, taking more or less exercise and the aging process all have an impact on the shape of our bodies. So, it is not wise to believe that you know your size.
Using the method outlined here, it only takes a few minutes to get the accurate measurements you need. When you are buying online this is crucial. You don’t want the hassle of having to send everything back because you have ordered the wrong style.
When your lingerie arrives, try it on as quickly as possible. That way you will be able to spot any issues and return or exchange the items.
In the UK, most online retailers are very good about accepting returns. The law is on the side of the consumer, but you should always check their returns policy before ordering from them. My advice is to look for and use those companies that are prepared to pay the postage or courier charge.
Wear your lingerie with confidence
When you find that perfect bra and briefs set, I promise you your confidence levels will soar. I was a bit worried when one of the UK’s biggest fashion retailers asked me to style some of their lingerie. But, I said yes and things worked out really well. I ended up having a lot of fun doing it and was really pleased with the resulting photos, which you can see here. Knowing how to buy the right lingerie for you will make a huge difference to how good you look and your confidence levels will soar.
A reminder about breast cancer awareness month
By the way I hope that some of you will be wearing pink for breast cancer awareness month. This is an important campaign that really does make a big difference to the lives of women across the world, so it really is well worth supporting. This year, the 19th of October is the date that has been chosen to get everyone to wear pink. But, if you can’t do it on that day, do not worry because here are “wear it pink” events planned throughout the entire month of October.
