Whether you’re jetting off overseas to an exotic destination, or hitting the road on a spontaneous road trip to make the most of the British sunshine, summer is the perfect time for a romantic break. Which means, it’s time to plan those outfits! And, if you’re planning a weekend away with your significant other, it’s likely you’ll want to put as much thought into what you’ll be wearing under your clothes too… 

A romantic getaway can be the perfect time to try something new. Something as small as experimenting with new underwear styles can really help boost your confidence, and turn up the heat on your weekend away.

Opting for a different style of bra can be a great way to mix things up. Feel sensual and seductive in delicate lace, or take things up a gear with sheer mesh and leather. Whether you’re buying for someone else or treating yourself, we’ve put together a quick guide to help you explore something new for those romantic nights away.

 

Balconette/Balcony Bra

A balconette, or balcony bra, typically gives you half or three-quarters coverage whilst lifting the top half of your breasts. They create a nice, rounded cleavage without full coverage, creating a playful, sensual look.

Turn up the volume and opt for a leather look to really heat things up on your weekend away. The Art Deco inspired Ava balconette bra exudes elegance: Japanese Plonge leather and delicate soft suede create beautiful, contrasting symmetrical shapes. The curving cup shape is crafted to compliment your every curve, creating a stunning and alluring finish. If you’re looking for even more of an edge, the Montana balconette bra is a real statement piece. Designed to be worn as both underwear and outerwear, the perforated leather creates a textured look which is sure to command attention.

 

Harness Bra

One of this year’s biggest lingerie trends is the harness bra, ideal for revealing your naughty side. These come in a variety of different styles and are perfect if you want to get on board with the underwear as outerwear trend, or opt for something cheeky for those romantic nights in.

Experiment with the layering trend and display the Montana leather harness bra over a simple vest top for an edgy, street style inspired look. The Annabel harness bra is also perfect if you’re looking to experiment with this trend. Show off the top of the bra with its delicate gold hardware detail by wearing it underneath an oversized top, then team it with the gorgeous Annabel suspender belt and thong for a more private moment. 

 

Soft Cup:

Soft cup bras are designed to provide support and coverage without using an underwire, giving you added comfort using soft, sheer materials. They give the structure and support required, and feel as amazing as they look – ideal if you’re heading somewhere in the sun.

The Eve soft cup bra is perfect for those long, hot summer days. Feel comfortable and confident with soft, luxurious material which sits beautifully against the skin, whilst the sheer mesh and cutaway details give a mischievous glimpse of skin. For an elegant yet cheeky look, the Arabella soft cup bra exudes glamour, with a modern edge. With fine, lace eyelashes that sit beautifully against your skin, this bra not only looks amazing but feels great too. The gold plated front clasp opening gives this timeless piece a contemporary twist.

 

Half Cup or Demi Bra

Half cup or demi bras are a partial-cup style bra which cover from half to three-quarters of the breast. Designed to create a slight uplift, this style is perfect for displaying slightly more cleavage, which will leave you feeling confident and flirtatious.  

Turn up the heat in the striking Nina Demi bra and feel bold in beautiful leather. The soft, padded cups give shape and uplift and make this bra a real statement piece. The double leather straps ensure this bra sits perfectly against the skin, so you feel as amazing as you look. Show them off by making the bra a part of your outfit, such as teaming it with a low backed dress for a modern twist on the timeless LBD.  

 

Peep and Peephole Bras

If you’re wanting to take it to the next level on your romantic getaway, this style is perfect. Designed to give a cheeky glimpse of skin using peep hole details, these bras can be worn both under clothes or slightly on show for a real statement look.

Pair the eye-catching Nina peep bra with a loose fitting sheer shirt for a bold and beautiful look, ideal for the evenings. Feel gorgeous in the Annabel peephole bra, framed with luxurious Chantilly lace, with revealing peephole details for added seduction.

 

Multi-Way Bra

A versatile design, the multi-way bra allows you to be flexible with your look. Adjustable straps allow you to opt for a modern look using statement straps, or selecting twin straps for a more classic look.

The unique straps on the Annabel multi-way bra are a simple, yet effective way to upgrade any outfit. Pair with a low fitting shirt or an off the shoulder top to show off your individual style, or switch to the twin straps for a more timeless look.

There are many different styles of bra out there to suit you and your body shape. If you’re looking for more structure, the balcony/balconette bras are underwired and come in specific cup sizes, so you can guarantee the perfect fit. Styles such as the soft cup and harness bras come in sizes XS to XL, and don’t have the cup sizes, so they’re more of a general fit.
