If you’re a pear shaped lady then you have wider hips, smaller shoulders and a waist that is bigger than your shoulders.

Is this your body type? Then the perfect swimsuit for you has a design, embellishment or shirring detail across the tummy. This will help define your and help you balance your figure.

You could also go for a swimsuit with a pattern at the top and a solid colour at the bottom as this will draw the attention to your upper body.

2. Apple Shaped

Women with an apple shape have small hips and broad shoulders. If you are apple shaped you might want to draw the attention to your lower body. In this case you should keep the top half of your swimsuit solid and go for some embellishment on your lower half.

3. Oval Shaped

If this is your shape then you would look wonderful in a deep V neck swimsuit or tankini. If you choose swimwear with a funky print or draping in the bust area you it will create a smaller waist visually.Oval shaped women have rounder and fuller shoulders and bust plus a rounded waist and hips.

Colour of the year 2014 – Radiant Orchid

Once again, the colour gurus have spoken and we say hello to Colour of the Year 2014, radiant orchid.

The shade will surely have great impact on the fashion this year. It isn’t quite lilac, lavender or magenta and according to the Pantone experts it as an “enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones”.

A great thing about this Colour of the Year is that it’s flattering on all kinds of skin tones. Which is great when it comes to lingerie! We feel the colour feels fresh and comes across very feminine and romantic.

Here are some lingerie items we have available in this great new colour of the year4096__3

The Mio Classic Rescued Damsel Purple pieces are perfect if you want to get yourself something that is on trend, comfortable and sexy. Beautiful purple floral lace adorns the bra’s cups with a dainty bow in the centre. It is a definite must to add the matching short and suspender belt.
