Determine your bra size
Choosing a bra depends on your figure type
(whether small-chested or well-endowed) and on your wardrobe
needs (from low-cut, clingy knits to high-necked, tailored
wovens). There is a wardrobe of bras to choose from that covers
a wide variety of needs, from smooth satiny styles to wear under
silks and knits to strapless or convertible bras for that
Aside from being one of the most purchased and
necessary items in a woman's lingerie wardrobe, underpants come
in a variety of styles to suit every fashion whim or need. Made
of fabrics such as cotton, nylon, silk or lace, underpants also
come in lightweight, stretchy blends with LYCRA.
The most talked about category in intimate
apparel is shapers - and they're definitely not your
grandmother's girdle! What makes the difference are lightweight
fabrics enhanced for comfortable control that smoothes and
shapes the body. From bottom boosters to thigh trimmers, these
shapers are perfect for today's body-conscious clothes.
A number of lingerie items are designed to be
worn as fashion ready-to-wear, such as lace-trimmed leggings and
camisoles that peek out of jackets. Others are playful and sexy,
like teddies and bralettes; or sporty, like crop tops and
leggings. Fabrics include rich velvets of luxurious
microfiber polyester or knits in cottony soft SUPPLEX® nylon -
each blended with LYCRA® for superior comfort, fit and freedom
A non-clinging slip, half-slip or chemise is an
essential item to create a smooth body line under clothes and
allow clingy knits to skim over the body. In addition to the
slimming slips described in the Shapers section, there are slips
made of fabrics with anti-cling, antistatic properties that
won't wash out, such as DuPont ANTRON III® nylon.
