The fashion capitols all over the world are heating up their runways in anticipation of Fall and Winter fashion shows. Designers are not sleeping at this point, because they have way too much to do. Models have drastically reduced their already meager diets, and runways are being constructed with eager hopes of successful shows and rave revues. The outward appearance tends to reign in this fashion-frenzied time of year.

However, sometimes the most important thing in a woman’s wardrobe is unseen by the general public. Sure, you’ve put hours of time and consideration, not to mention money, into your new, bright crop jacket. Although stylish and cute, the most substantial piece of your wardrobe is what’s underneath. That’s right; I’m talking about your lingerie!

So many women overlook the details when it comes to this essential element, but those days are drawing to a close. Maybe you aren’t bold enough to strut down the runway in your unmentionables, or even out of your bedroom, but your undergarments have been overlooked long enough. Your lingerie is something you see every day, and it deserves to have as much attention as your new pumps or oversized bag.

If you have a small chest and can get away with less support, opt for a bralette or triangle bra style. They are a sassy way to liven up your every day lingerie. They are normally thinner and can be found in pretty laces and fabrics. Some styles of bralettes can even be worn under suit jackets or camisoles. This is a fun, flirty way to rev up your undergarments, and you will still be comfortable.

If you are looking for some added cleavage, try a push-up demi bra. It will enhance what you have by giving a bit of a lift.

Looking for some styles that flatter your all ready ample girls? Your best friend is underwire. Underwire bras help support what you have by lifting and separating. Many times women wear the wrong size bra and complain of the underwire being uncomfortable. Take the time to be properly fitted, and you will feel like a new woman! Each brand or store should have a specific guideline to ensure a proper fit.

If you want to minimize what you have, select bras that are specifically designed for full coverage and minimizing purposes. The styles are designed to smooth and control.

Now you can’t forget about panties, another very important asset to your lingerie wardrobe! The options are endless. There are so many styles to choose from! If you want the best option for a no-line look, then a thong is the better bet. If you aren’t worried about a line, then have some fun! The lingerie industry has been pushing the envelope with some exciting new styles of panties. They have also been revisiting sexy styles of yesteryear. Check out the 50s-style bloomer panty that adds a touch of drama and a whole lot of sexy.

Most of all, it is important to be comfortable in your lingerie. Pick pieces that make you feel sexy and confident. That way, when it is time to head out your door, you feel as important as you are!
