With summer on its way, it’s the prime time to refresh your warm-weather wardrobe with strappy styles, off-the-shoulder shapes and plunging tops. But when it comes to summertime dressing there’s always one big question: Do you have the perfect bra to go with your tricky summer outfits? Well no need to worry – we’re on hand to help. Here’s what we recommend…

One of the most brilliant basics you’ll ever own, the Fantasie Smoothing Bra (above) is a necessity for almost every lingerie drawer. It’s the perfect classic t-shirt shape with ultra smooth underwired cups to create a super sleek foundation, whilst the nude colourway creates an invisible look under white clothing. Or for a prettier touch, look to the Figleaves Eva Lace T-shirt Bra (below left) with floral lace accents and ribbon bow detailing. The padded, underwired cups create the perfect foundation as well as promising a comfortable feel.
