It’s now not unusual to hear the terms ‘sexy’ and ‘shapewear’ together. Whereas shapewear, back in the bad old days just a few years ago, used to be all about the Bridget Jones knickers and plain, constricting and definitely unsexy pieces, now the market is full of pretty, delicate collections.
One such range, and a Fashion Bust favourite, is La Figurelle. It even sounds sexy. Designed to make women feel as confident and sexy on the inside as they look on the outside, according to founder Geraldine Courtney, the brand is feminine and sexy as well as functional.
And it has a celebrity following. Natalie Joel of Made in Chelsea fame models the brand’s Ciel range in this stunning photo, and the popular line is being extended for the upcoming autumn/winter 2013 season with the new high-waisted briefs Natalie is wearing.
Available from September, the briefs offer medium to light tummy shaping and features a cheeky mesh back for support and shaping. Cute little design details include silver ribbon and bows which set off the powder blue perfectly. They will retail for £34 and will look fab with the Ciel balconette bra, £68.
