Lingerie for your little black dresses

The days are getting shorter, the nights are drawing in and winter is on its way, which can mean only one thing; party season is almost upon us. As we scour the shops and online retailers for winter weddings and Christmas parties (and New Year, of course!), we also know that every LBD needs a new underwear solution.

Here at Fashion Bust we’re deeply excited to discover the brand new collection from and have a sneaking suspicion it’s about to become our go-to site for perfect party pieces.

It has just launched its first ever own-label collection of little black dresses (I’ve already made my order for the The Marilyn Dress, due in soon!) , just in time for our favourite time of year, so to lend a helping hand for all your festive party dressing dilemmas, we’ve picked our top five favourites, plus the lingerie you need to go with them to ensure your Christmas parties go with a bang.

Dress: Audrey

Little Black Dress Audrey
For a classic cocktail evening we love the sophisticated splendour of Audrey; named after Miss Hepburn and modelled on the Givenchy number worn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s it looks classy and elegant, whilst the plunging neckline is perfect for flattering a larger bust.
Underwear solution: The wider straps mean there’s no need to sacrifice on your bra either. Pair it with the Jeanie Plunge Moulded Bra from Parfait – smooth and supportive in a sexy purple leopard print.
Dress sizes: 8-16.
Buy: £120,
Bra sizes: Jeanie Plunge Moulded Bra, 30-40 D-G; and Hipster Brief, XS-XXL
Buy: Bra, £26; briefs, £12;


Dress: Charlize

Little Black Dress Charlize

If a bit of sparkle is more your scene as you hit the Christmas dancefloor, take a look at Charlize, a shimmering, dazzling delight of a flapper dress shrouded in jet black beads and sequins that shimmy as you move.
Underwear solution: The mesh yoke means you won’t want straps on show, so plump for a strapless staple like the Allison Strapless Bra from Affinitas Intimates.

Bra sizes: Allison Strapless Bra, 32-38 B-DD; and Hipster Brief, XS-XL

Dress: Jessica

Little Black Dress Jessica

Slinky, sleek and oh so sexy, Jessica’s cowl back, gold collar and draped jersey is perfect for those of you that want your waist cinched in and a statement neckline. Underwear solution: Avoid flashing your bra with the genius Go Bare Ultimate Boost Backless Strapless Bra from Fashion Forms. Made for small busts needing a little shape, this crafty little moulded foam with underwire sticks on to keep everything in place with no straps in sight.

Dress: Kate

Little Black Dress Kate

Make like Moss in the supremely stylish Kate, a form-fitting crepe style trimmed with luxurious feathers – an unusual piece bound to get your compliments.
Underwear solution: A figure-hugging style such as this calls for super smooth lines – VPL is not invited to this party – so check out the Spanx Super Higher Power Tights (£22.40); legwear with the added benefit of shapewear, tummy-taming, bottom-lifting miraclewear for a totally flawless figure!

Dress: Blake

Little BLack Dress Blake

The beauty of Blake is the amazingly flattering structured scuba fabric; the genius material holds you in all the right places whilst being stretchy enough to indulge in a canapé or two…
Underwear solution: Have a little fun with your lingerie for this one. We are little bit in love with the Nicole Contour Racerback Bra (£22.00, 32-38 B-DD) in gorgeous fuchsia rose and hipster brief (£10.00, XS-XL) from Affinitas Intimates, a vibrant colour hit that makes a change from black!
