Event season has arrived and we’ve found the best lingerie for special occasions! It’s the little things that count; like a supportive silicone bra or a fab tummy tucker to help you look and feel confident for that cocktail party. Follow our top tips and shop right here for the best lingerie pieces this season has to offer!
Our best lingerie to help you look and feel fabulous:
Best suited for: Strapless dresses
This silicone bra is perfect to wear with strapless or backless dresses, as well as any look which shows off your lower back.
R249, A-B to C-D, H&M. Available in store.
Best suited for: Plunge necklines
It’s difficult to find the perfect bra that’s comfortable and right for your top, but this beautiful low neckline lace bra is perfect because it’s super comfortable, yet subtle enough to hide beneath those hard-to-wear dresses that fall super low.
Best suited for: Any blouse or dress
This multiway, adjustable bra is one of our favourites because it’s so versatile, you can wear it with just about any outfit. It can be worn three ways; strapless, cross-back, or standard, so take your pick!
R249, 70A to 85D, H&M. Available in store.
Best suited for: Smaller busts
Love the idea of showing a little lace? Then, look no further than this beautiful bralette. Similar to sports bras, but prettier, bralettes are ideal for small to medium busts as they don’t offer the full support of a padded cup or underwired bra, but they’re simple and fun! Pair this one with a soft blouse or cami for a causal, yet stylish look.
Best suited for: Bigger busts
Need a lift? We’ve found this full coverage bra at Mr Price. This 2-pack bra set offers great support and is super stylish to. Wear it under a T.shirt, tank top or halter dress.
Best suited for: Lacey tops and chiffon dresses
Keep everything covered with these gel petal nude covers.
Best suited for: Tighter clothing
Shapewear is always welcome, and this seamless bodysuit gets a thumbs up from us because it nips and tucks in all the right places.
Best suited for: Fitting skirts and pants
Underwear with no visible panty line? Yes please! In fact, seamless underwear should be a necessity in every woman’s wardrobe.
Best suited for: High-wasted skirts, shorts and pants
If you need to smooth out your tummy and thighs and hold everything in, these high-waist shapewear tights certainly get the job done. And an even better bonus? They’re super comfy and allow you to breathe!
Best suited for: Sheer clothing
If you’re sporting something slightly sheer, you can’t go wrong with invisible underwear. A tan shade is a good option for most styles of clothing.
R249, XS to XL, H&M. Available in store.
The ultimate, stylish hoisery
Best suited for: Dresses with slits
Thigh highs are convenient because full stockings are sometimes uncomfortable and difficult to wear. The added bonus here? These have a pretty lace trim.
Best suited for: Extra support under anything!
Although this suspender belt has a functional purpose (to keep your stockings in place), it’s a super sexy piece of undewear too, and will give you an extra boost of confidence!
R229, XS to XL, H&M
Best suited for: heels, sandals and wedges
Resist burning feet with these fabulous gel cushions. You could be dancing in your heels the entire night!
