Choosing the Perfect Lingerie for your Summer Wardrobe

  • 3 min read

Summer has arrived, bringing long, hot days, balmy nights and the long-awaited summer break. However, summer can also pose fashion challenges that even the most seasoned stylists find confusing. Unlike the forgiving nature of winter layers and chunky knits, lighter summer attire demands careful consideration when it comes to selecting the right lingerie.  

Looking for the perfect bra under your white t-shirt? Low back dress? Strapless top? This is where Fine Lines Lingerie excels - providing smooth solutions for any outfit. Discover the ideal lingerie options tailored toseventricky summer outfits. 

1. Slip Dress 

Silky slip dresses have been a summer staple for decades. They're elegant, versatile and comfortable, making them perfect for any occasion. When pairing them with the right bra it's important to choose a bra that won't show through the dress. Our top pick is the Refined 6-way Low Cut Strapless Bra (RL030A), the plunge strapless is perfect for v-necklines and the smooth 3D hemmed cups create a seamless finish. Plus, it also comes with an additional low-back strap that is perfect for low-back dresses.  

2. Deep-V Necklines

A plunge bra is key for summer's deep necklines. Our Refined Strapless Plunge Bustier (RL029A) is the perfect choice if you're looking for an extreme low-cut, strapless bra. The wide U-front design is ideal for plunging necklines and removable padding offers an additional boost. Plus it comes with removable padding for optional boost!  

3. Strapless Tops and Dresses

Strapless bras are the MVPs for wearing strapless tops and dresses (or spaghetti strap outfits) as they provide the necessary support without interfering with the strapless look. When choosing a strapless bra, it’s important to look for a bra with a wide band and good grip to ensure it stays in place throughout the day. The Memory Strapless Bra (MM014) is our best-selling strapless bandeau for everyday wear. The light, non-crease memory foam cups are designed to mould to the shape of your bust, creating the perfect fit. 

4. Sheer Blouse

Hot summer weather lends perfectly to lightweight fabrics, but what bra should you wear under a sheer top? What could be considered a bit of a wild card, we recommend a lacy bralette! They give a daring peek of lingerie to your look while adding a small shot of mystery to it. The Mystery Wire Free bra (MY017) is designed to make you feel both sophisticated and supported. The triangle-shaped, darted cups provide a gentle lift while the delicate edge lace adds a touch of glamour. 

5. Halter-Neck Styles

Halter neck tops are a great choice for women who love an elegant look but want to reveal a hint of skin. High, narrow necklines call for convertible bras with a halter-style option. Our recommendation is the multi Refined 5 Way Convertible Push Up Bra (RL023A). Smooth and sophisticated, this medium boost, adjustable push-up has 3D hemmed cups for a smooth fine plunge neckline, removable straps and, as the name suggests, offers five ways to wear making it the ultimate multitasker.  

6. Figure-Hugging Knit Fabrics

Clingy knit fabrics demand a classic moulded T-shirt bra for a smooth look on top. Tshirt bras feature cups that are smooth and seamless, ensuring they won't leave any noticeable impressions when worn beneath body-hugging outfits. For a clean and smooth silhouette under fitted outfits our top pick is the Memories Balconette Contour Bra (ME011). It’s lightweight and has non-crease, high-stretch memory foam cup as well as a narrow laminated edge trim on the neckline and underarm to create a no-show finish under your clothing. Pair it with the Invisibles Thong (IV031) to avoid visible panty lines.  

7. White T-Shirt

A white t-shirt is undoubtably a summer wardrobe staple, making an everyday tshirt bra a wardrobe essential.  A great t-shirt bra is one that is invisible when you wear it. It should have a limited number of seams (or be seam free) and have limited to no embroidery or embellishments. Our best-selling Memory Full Coverage Bra (MM032) is a perfect choice to wear underneath your favourites tee. It has smooth, non-crease memory foam cups, soft fabric with a hint of stretch and fully-supported smooth wings for shaping, creating the perfect fit.
