BalconyThe balcony Bra lifts breasts to enhance and give maximum lift. Sometimes called a shelf bra the straps lift from the bottom of the cup. This one is definitely more of a sexy, sassy style.
PlungeThis is the perfect style for creating the most cleavage. The plunge supports from the centre of the bust and pushes the breasts together. This style is perfect for wearing with a low cut top.
Full CupThis Bra is excellent for great support and shape. As described by its name it covers a larger portion of the breast, these are usually worn by ladies who have a larger cup size.
T-shirtT-shirt bras are named so as they are easily worn under t-shirts without being seen. They are usually made with a smooth material and are seem free. However this style can come in many different colours and varieties.
Full briefThe most coverage is given by the full brief and usually has a higher waist perfect for minimising her tummy. This knicker is known to be the most comfortable and will be available in most sets.
HipsterThe hipster brief is named so as it sits on the hip and usually cuts away at the back. Quite a fashionable style for a younger lady.
French KnickersUsually composed mostly of lace these briefs have a high waist and cut around half way across the buttock.
ThongOne of the more well-known styles this brief exposes the bottom with a high leg. This style is better suited to petite or athletic Women.
BasqueA Basque works like a corset and can sometimes have a built in bra. These come in many different styles and shapes and really emphasise an hour glass shape for your lady. These can sometimes attach to hosiery like a suspender belt.
Suspenders and WaspiesA Suspender belt or Waspie sits above the knickers and acts as a belt to hold up stockings. A suspender is thinner and fits around the hips where as a waspie is thicker and reaches up to the waist. Usually both come with a matching set.
NightwearIf you’re struggling with your lady’s size or style choice you can't go wrong with a lovely piece of Nightwear. Head in the direction of silk chemises and robes.
