Look your best this festive season with luxury, shaping lingerie!

The festive period is a great time to socialise with friends and family and if you have a big occasion coming up, you will want to look and feel your best.  

Of course, for most of us it takes more than a lovely dress to be party ready! For those big occasions, you may want to visit your hairdresser beforehand and treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure (essential if you are donning strappy heels!).  

You will also need the right accessories, depending on the cut and style of your party wear this may include a statement necklace (chunky designs are still big news in the style stakes), bracelet, earrings and a statement clutch.

Another key accessory that can often make or break your entire look is your underwear. A well-fitted and supportive bra will not only offer you the support you need, but depending on style, can offer the required amount of cleavage, shaping and slim your figure.

While you need practical underwear that will support you, feel comfortable and help shape your body, you need not compromise on style or luxury. We have rounded-up some of our top picks for the perfect party dress underwear, each designed to offer the optimum in terms of fit, cut and support while also looking and feeling luxurious and alluring! Check them out…
