Women’s lingerie has a hard job to do. We want it to be sexy, comfy, functional and hard-working; quite a tall order for such a small pieces of fabric. And yet the wrong underwear can ruin an outfit causing a fashion malfunction of the worse kind. Sometimes it seems like a whole lot of money and effort for very little reward. But Dirty Pretty Things new SS13 collection is right on the money.
Luxury lingerie brand Dirty Pretty Things has been around since 2010, treating us to gorgeous collections of beautiful underwear that seem a shame to cover up. This season is no different; designed for sexy, confident women the collection caters for each aspect of her personality.
If even your underwear must be on trend you will love the Show Pony Neon range. This bold collection features mesh babydolls and loungewear knickers in neon brights, bringing a vintage look right up to date. Neon has also been worked into their classic Eloise range this season with pink fluorescent binding.
Despite the overt sexiness of the range you get the impression that the collection has been designed with women in mind, understanding that sexy is not always about trying to impress a man. The padded corset has been designed to hug and sculpt the female form to give the perfect silhouette with a splash of old school glamour.
Whether you want to embrace the neon trend or let out your wild side with the animal prints there is something to get everyone’s heart racing. Whilst the price tag means M&S lingerie department won’t be losing your custom just yet, don’t forget that your underwear drawer is entitled to a little bit of luxury too.
