What lingerie to wear under your summer clothes?


How to choose your colour of plus size lingerie?How to choose your colour of plus size lingerie?

Chic or basic, in bold colours or never-out-of-style white, summer is when we want to wear light-weight garments and show off more skin. Choosing the right underwear is a must: invisible lingerie is like a second skin, giving you the confidence to wear all your clothes, even the tightest-fitting and most transparent.

Sans Complexe lingerie shares tips on how to wear your comfortable under-essentials discretely with 5 summer looks!

How to choose your invisible lingerie?

  • Finding your lingerie size

First things first, you need to find the right bra or underwear size for your invisible lingerie. If your lingerie is too loose, folds and bumps will show through your clothes. If your lingerie is too tight, you’ll feel uncomfortable, and your lingerie will leave marks on your skin.

  • Invisible fabrics: microfibre and lace

Microfibre is the secret behind invisible underwear; it’s fluid and stretches. Microfibre is your perfect ally; it clings to your skin and is wrinkle-free. And microfibre is very soft, so it’s nice to wear.

Lace is also a favourite for its finesse and because it can be worn with everything. Go for a sensual look and let your lace peek out from a top.

  • Seams

Invisible undergarments are usually seamless, leaving your skin free of marks. Some pieces have extra flat finishing to stay in place and ensure true discretion.

  • What lingerie should I wear with a top ?

Summer means tops, the perfect feminine and casual look with jeans. The strapless bra lets you play with all styles, thanks to the removeable or multi-position straps. Ideal for bareback tops, asymmetric tops and off the shoulder looks.


Your questions from our live events: should voluptuous women prefer traditional or transparent bra straps?
As an expert in helping plus-size cup women, at Sans Complexe we prefer traditional bra straps, removeable or elastic to ensure your comfort. Transparent straps don’t provide larger-cup women with the needed maintenance, and their abrasive material may mark and irritate your skin. And transparent straps don’t age well as they yellow with time.

Top up your set with bottoms from the invisible Lift Up line, a blend of microfibre and tulle with extra-flat seams, ideal under pants or close-fitting jeans.

  • What lingerie should your wear under a crew or V-neck t-shirt?

If you’re aiming for a basic chic look, you’ve probably worn a t-shirt with a crayon skirt. Subliming your cleavage when you wear a t-shirt means wearing light invisible lingerie suited for the neckline.

  • The total white look: what colours should I choose for my lingerie?

To look fashionably elegant in the city or on the beach, white is the perfect companion to highlight your complexion, and bring out your tan. Avoid wearing white underwear with white clothes. Here’s what you should prefer:

• Pastels: these soft hues won’t show under light-coloured clothes.

• Nudes: depending on your skin colouring, from beige to brown.

Dark reds: it’s no myth, they’ll be completely invisible.

Wear lingerie separates to highlight your outfit and ensure invisibility: if you’re wearing a beige top, opt for navy blue or black below to elongate your silhouette.

  • How to adopt the underwear as outerwear trend?

A true self confidence builder, underwear is now outerwear. Wear your ultra-desirable underwear as outerwear, giving your looks that sun-kissed sensuality. Don’t stop short of having fun, show off your lace and your lacings.
