Spring Clean Your Lingerie Drawer

With the arrival of Spring, thoughts turn to cleansing and regeneration over here at YCB; and one thing most likely to be in need of a detox is your lingerie draw. If taking a good look at your delicates makes you feel more berate than beautiful, it could be time to say goodbye and start afresh.

Understanding the importance of timeless lingerie to match any neckline, Luxury French lingerie house Maison Lejaby launches a NEW Capsule collection for SS17.

Crafted with over 75 years of expertise from a mastery of precious materials to embellish curves and enhance body confidence, the experts behind the brand reveal the top 5 essential items for your lingerie drawer, leaving you feeling as blossoming as a spring daffodil.

1. The T Shirt Bra

Everyone needs a dependable bra that appears almost invisible under a tight jumper, shirt or top. The most important aspect of the t-shirt bra is its smoothness, and thanks to the seamless and endlessly stretchy contoured design of the Spacer Bra, this is a great style to wear under almost every item in your wardrobe.

Maison Lejaby’s TIP! Stick to the rule of three pairs of underwear for each bra. Whether you prefer thongs or styles with full coverage, it makes sense to have some of each.

2. The Colourful Triangle Bra Top

Pretty enough to be glimpsed under a denim shirt or low-cut vest, the coloured bra is a universal spring style essential – even for those not accustomed to flashing their intimates. Available in sunshine yellow, Maison Lejaby’s on-trend triangle design bra will bring a smile to your face on even the greyest morning. Unlined and non-wired, the top features opaque lace seams for light support and a streamlined, sports luxe shape.

Maison Lejaby’s TIP! Wear it with tank tops and pieces that cut low in the shoulders and back to reveal a peep of colour without the risk of looking tacky.

3. Super Sexy Lingerie

Something frivolous and oh-so seductive is worth it, even if you wear it only once. Every woman should have at least one set of lingerie in their drawer that can be packed for a weekend away or when you are in the mood to really wow someone – special or otherwise – so it’s definitely worth a little extra expenditure.

Maison Lejaby’s TIP! Finding lingerie for larger breasts can be a challenge, especially if sexiness matters more to you than supportiveness. Fortunately, Maison Lejaby’s Bohemienne Dickey Bralette can be layered over more tradition styles for a quick and seductive update for any bra size. The stunning bra top features a high apex design creating a halterneck-style cut, ideal for showing off a tempting glimpse of lingerie beneath your clothes.

4. Shape Control

The secret essential hiding in almost every underwear drawer; nothing quite beats the feeling of mannequin-like tautness under every outfit. The best shapewear is both pretty and practical which is why Maison Lejaby’s shape control lingerie is designed with powerful mesh panels and intricate lace and silky lace details; now you can have your shape and sexy too!

Maison Lejaby’s TIP! If you want to flatten your tummy and give your waist some shape then opt for an all in one body style suit. Their new Gaby Bodysuit simply flatters the body without clinging to skin providing fantastic hold – especially around the waist.

5. The Convertible Strapless Bra

This one is a lingerie no brainer – a sensible purchase that can easily switch from regular to strapless, to t-back, and worn with just about anything; simply remove the straps for tops and dresses with deep V-necks, or loop one strap around the back of your neck for support under tricky-to-wear halterneck styles.  In addition to the secrets of Maison Lejaby’s expert technology for perfect support, the Nue Bandeau bra also boasts sexy and playful sheer fabric stripes and a flattering feminine cut so you look great from all angles.

Maison Lejaby’s TIP!  This bra is your eveningwear’s new best friend, so keep the colour simple with black or nude.
