To many women and girls buying new underwear can often be seen as a dreaded task. You don't want to get hot and flustered whilst trying to find the right bra for you, whilst being restricted in a tiny changing room where any minute you feel the curtain may fly open and expose you to everyone. I understand I did not like it either especially during my younger teenage years when going bra shopping with your mum was the worst thing ever.
However it now seems to me that having nice underwear is just as important as having the right outfit and with so many shops now having affordable lingerie sections there really should not be all this hassle it should be something to love! In the last month two of my major "girl crushes" have announced their collaborations with high street shops, the first being the painfully Gorgeous Rose Huntington-Whiteley who is collaborating with M&S. The second being the beautiful Kelly Brook (who is debuting her second range for New Look.) Both of these ladies I am proud to say are English and are showing us that you can still feel amazing in underwear without having to pay a crazy amount at the tills!
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's collection for M&S helps update the brand slight "mumsy" reputation and has a mixture of gorgeous soft pastel colours, silk, lace detailing, twenties shapes and styling.
Rosie says in her promotional video for the brand 'We’ve struck a good balance between being young and modern while still being classic and sexy but it’s feminine. I hope people enjoy it in that way.’ With regards to help designing the collection she says to have been very hands on when picking out the materials and how she wanted the collection to look as a whole, as one of the flawless Victoria's secret girls I am sure she is no stranger to knowing what fits and works well. With an impressive 33 pieces in the collection there is bound to be something for everyone. By the look of it she's done an amazing job and this collection is sure to be a sell out, the collection will be available from selected stores from the 30th August and online from September.
Kelly Brook's second collection for New Look promises to be just as successful as her first. With pieces which contain details such as cute polka dots, lace and the 50's as her inspiration, it seems the collection is bound to be a success. With an amazing figure like hers Brook probably has her fair share of not being able to find bra's that fit and support her properly so this collection is available from a wide range from size a 34B to 36F. The collection has also been designed to help flatter all sizes and shapes so the vintage style pieces help to do so. Kelly Brook says "I am so excited about my second lingerie collection. It’s gorgeous and feminine with a few sexy pieces thrown into the mix. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do." Selected pieces are already available to buy from the New Look website and will hit the stores soon.
