We’re ever hopeful at Fashion Bust that the weather is going to surprise us, and any day now a glorious spring will dawn. And it seems we’re not the only ones. The spring/summer 2013 lingerie collections are as bright as can be, with every colour you can think of available from one brand or another, not to mention the hugely popular neon trend. So gorgeous are this season’s colours, in fact, that we have been inspired to put together a week in lingerie based on the colours of the rainbow. We hope you love it as much as we do!
