Lingerie colours Autumn/Winter 2013: Teal

An enduring favourite in the Autumn/Winter lingerie collections for a few years now, teal is a wonderful colour for bras. Flattering against both pale and darker skin tones, it’s a luxurious jewel tone that somehow manages to be both fresh and sultry at the same time. We’ve spotted a number of lovely teal collections due out this season, including the gorgeous D plus Dreamcatcher range from Curvy Kate (available from September), but if you want a touch of teal in your life right now, check out these brands.

Calvin Klein Stretch Lace Push Up Bra

Calvin Klein Stretch Lace Push Up Bra

Many people associate Calvin Klein with underwear basics, which they do really well, but the brand also has an extensive range of sexier lingerie, and this bra has an amazing shape, with underwired padded cups overlaid with stretch lace for a great push up effect. It’s comfortable and practical as well as pretty, and is on our wish-list.

Buy the bra in sizes 32-36 A-D for £50 from Harvey Nichols.

The stunning Jade Bra by Lascivious

Lascivious Jade Cut Out Bra

Lascivious is a designer brand famous for its sexy, provocative style, and the Jade Bra is no exception. It’s a luxury buy at more than £150,  but it has a bold, sculptural feel that is contemporary and flattering with mesh elements and cheeky front cut outs – the perfect buy if you want to treat yourself to some seductive underwear, and it would also make the perfect gift (hint hint, boys).

Passionata's Glamorous T-Shirt Bra in Vert Orient

Passionata Glamorous T-Shirt Bra

We love this bra from Passionata because it is a great, practical T-shirt bra that comes with really stunning embroidery on the cups and the wings – reminiscent of a peacock’s tail in full display – and it’s super flattering for A to D cup sizes. It also has a nice push-up effect for a little extra boost. This is one bra we need to own!

Topshop's Tonal Satin Balcony Bra

Topshop Tonal Satin Balcony Bra

This striking padded balcony bra from Topshop contrasts blue and green satin and lace overlay for a bright, fun sea-green effect. It’s also a great value bra and therefore perfect for buying into the teal trend on a budget.

Intimissimi's Claudio Pizzo Elegante Coppa B Bra

Intimissimi Claudio Pizzo Elegante Coppa B Bra

This is a great versatile bra from Intimissimi. With moulded cups and detachable straps for wearing with strapless tops, the style is all practicality while the colour is all fashion. Try popping into one of the retailer’s stores if you fancy this bra as there isn’t a huge size range available on the website.

Buy the bra in size 32-38 B-C for £29.99 from Initmissimi.
