Fuller Coverage Underwear with All of the Oomph

Forget grey, worn and snapped elastic underwear, we've enlisted the help of the wonderful Louise O'Reilly from Style Me Curvy to help us get our drawers of smalls in order. She's selected some of her favourite pieces that give coverage, oomph and a feeling of luxury.

With Valentines Day on our doorstep, I find it’s a great time of the year to update our underwear collection whether it’s simple basics to more feminine pieces. One of the more recent shoots I worked on gave a great variation of styles for all body shapes and busts. There are a number of options for those seeking more coverage on arms or lower tummy areas, but without compromising on femininity from both the comfort to the more luxurious.

Outside of this shoot for those with smaller busts, Rosie for Autograph is a wonderful choice combining a multitude of sophisticated styles that will support and give a fuller look. Bigger busts will feel particularly secure with brands such as Panache and Fantasie available at Arnotts and the DD+ collection at Debenhams.
