Ooh La La Lingerie
If there was ever a challenge (before City Chic) more difficult than finding a fabulous & fashion forward outfit, it would be finding sexy Lingerie in larger sizes suitable for a curvy body shape! This is no longer a problem. As always City Chic have come to our rescue and OH MY! I am having a total love affair with the new sexy & supportive (YES you heard correctly…SEXY & SUPPORTIVE) Lingerie collection. The quality of the fabrics is fantastic, there is a great selection and a lot of thought has gone into the fit and style of the range to give us exactly what we want from Lingerie.
There are 2 types of City Chic Lingerie with sizes ranging from 16B to 22G. Bra extenders are also available, suitable for the entire range to help with sizing and comfort concerns. Here is a breakdown of the collection to help you lovely ladies find what you are looking for.
Smooth & Chic Range:
These are items I would consider as your essentials. Finally, bras that can do it all plus look good and feel great.
Love T Shirt Bra – moulded cups for great shape and support. Detachable straps to convert to halter or cross over.
Adore Strapless Bra – back has 4 hooks for extra support, moulded contour cups for a great rounded look with support from boning in the side and back seams. Straps are fully removable or can be worn as a 1 shoulder, halter or cross over.
Love Briefs & Shapewear – you can mix and match both of these with any of the Love & Adore bras. Briefs have raw edging on leg & waist which is non fraying and smooth for comfort. Briefs also contain over 20% elastin for a super comfy fit that will move when you move. The shapewear is comfortable with good control. It has power net lining to help with a smooth tummy and gives stretch in both length and width.
This is a regular City Chic Range and comes mainly in shades of Black & Latte.
These items are fashion lingerie. Everything is seriously seductive but comfortable & supportive. Good for that special occasion or just because!.
Fifi – The black & nude combination with the stripe mesh and lace trims definitely gives Fifi the OOH LA LA factor.
• Control briefs sit high on waist
• Bra is a flattering balconette style
• Lace trims are all made from stretch lace so there is no cutting into the skin
• High waist control briefs have wide silicon elastic on the waist for a secure fit and to prevent rolling down.
• Waist cincher is boned, has hook & eye closure and detachable suspenders.
Paris – Nothing says bright and bold like hot pink with polka dots.
• Balconette style bra with power net lining
• High waist briefs with cute keyhole detail at the back
• A combination of micro fibre and black satin bows for comfort and sassy style
Diva – For those who aren’t afraid of the sheer and sexy. A gorgeous collection in stretch lace
• Contour bra has moulded cups and is lined with power net for smooth support
• Boy leg underwear has a satin waist band
• Suspender skirt to match (everybody wants one of those)
Coco – A classic range with a City Chic twist. Alluring in black and lace or playfully fun in black and white polka dot with hot pink bows.
• Stretch lace for comfort
• Under wire bra with soft cups
• Polka dot Boy leg or high waist briefs
• Black lace suspender skirt or high waist briefs
These are Limited Edition items and come in various styles, colours, & patterns.
*** Stay up stockings are on the way. Keep an eye out for them in stores, there will be sheer lace top and fishnet lace top styles ***
We have all at some point worn the wrong bra size. Some of you may still be wearing the wrong size and have no idea. We have all heard or said “with the right bra on this will sit better”, and it’s the truth. The right bra can help define your body shape, and will ultimately determine how your outfit looks. Getting it right underneath is just as important as selecting flattering clothing.
Those of you who have tried these items on have given great feedback saying it's true to size, fit is comfy and the cups give you good shape as well as good lift. If you haven’t had a chance to try any of it on, pleeeeeease, I encourage you all to get into your local stores. Check out the styles, feel the fabrics & try the collection on I guarantee you will not be disappointed! The new sleepwear looks fantastic too and goes perfectly with the Lingerie. Don’t be afraid to ask any of the City Chic team to measure you to help find you the perfect fitting bra.
My favourite is the Fifi collection whats yours? E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any Lingerie feedback you have and I will pass it on to the Lingerie team J.
