This summer is more exciting than any summer before. We can finally come together again and celebrate all the time we have spent apart! As with any season change, it's always a good idea to look at your lingerie collection each year to see if it is still getting the job done properly. As we always say, a bra should never have a birthday!

We have compiled a collection of all the lingerie we believe should have a spot in your summer wardrobe and why! Read along to hear Hourglass Lingerie's tips and tricks on how to stay cool (looking AND feeling) this summer!

Summer of Bralettes

Bralettes have been growing in popularity and versatility year after year. They started as loungewear, but have grown into one of the most popular bra styles for any occasion. Most bralettes come with light lining for breathability, no underwire for comfort, and lots of beautiful lace or embroidery.

We are dying over the Be Wicked Lana Bralette BW1711 Candy Pink Soft Cup's dainty color and intricate lace. Hourglass Lingerie also adores the Parfait Dalis P5641 Black Wirefree Seamed Bralette because of how soft and breathable the material is. This summer trend is hot, so be on top of it!

Lingerie on Top

One of the biggest trends we see rising up this summer is a Longline Bra being paired with jeans and heels. Or even being paired with a skirt. The versatility of longline bras is one of the many reasons we love them! Their natural shape wear effect looks wonderful under clothes or as a top on their own.

The more revealing Parfait Sandrine P5351 Racing Red Plunge Longline Bra is perfect for a steamy night on the town. The more retro Freya Pin Up AA5093 Black Underwire Padded Strapless Bustier Bra will be sure to look and feel amazing all day and night. The look and feel of longline bras make them the perfect choice for a summery look.

Let Your Body Breathe!

The most frequently requested style of bra we are asked to find during fittings are bras that are breathable and light. Something good for working outside in the garden or on a boat for hours. At Hourglass Lingerie, we realize how restricting, sweaty, and uncomfortable certain bras can be in the heat of summer.

For customers like these, we recommend a Soft Cup or Sports Bra to handle this issue. Soft cup bras like the Anita Rosa Faia Twin Firm 5694 Skin Maximum Support Underwire Bra allow free breathability and comfort without sacrificing support. Alternatively, sports bras such as the Anita 5544 Black Neon Air Controlled Wire Free Sports Bra are designed for breathable activity no matter what you choose to do. Don't let the summer heat prevent you from cooling off!

So Long, Straps

Summer and warm weather mean the clothes get smaller, more practical, and covering less skin. At Hourglass Lingerie we rejoice in showing such much-needed sun to the body, so why ruin a cute outfit with bra straps? We believe each and every woman needs a Strapless Bra in their collection to grab in those times of emergency or strapless dresses!

With many women also coming in to find strapless bras, we have expanded our inventory to include lots of different variety and style. The Freya Deco AA4233 Nude Underwire Molded Strapless Bra is a simple but sweet bra that will disappear beneath any piece of clothing. The Parfait Elissa P5011 Black Contour Strapless Bra is a little more ornate and sultry, without losing functionality. The beauty about these strapless bras is that the straps click back in, just in case you need them!

Cover Up.... or Don't!

Many women think cover-ups only have a place on the beach. Boy, could they not be more wrong! Cover-Ups are becoming very popular not only for beach and pool lounging, but even in the bedroom or a more revealing outfit. We love the sexiness of a cover-up being worn on a lazy afternoon around the house.

The Be Wicked BW1525 White Satin Kimono Short Robe Solid is a perfect from-the-beach-to-the-sheets piece that looks great no matter where you are headed. It is also soft and silky. Alternatively, the Elomi Indie ES7531 Black High Neck Cover Up Swim has a classic cover-up look but can still be worn during the day, too! Don't overlook these cover-up and swimwear pieces as only being cute in the water.

Be Yourself This Summer

In conclusion, this summer is all about embracing your uniquely-perfect self. Show as much or as little skin as you desire; as long as you are confident, you are doing it right! We are so excited to help you find the perfect look, whether it be through an In-Store Fitting or on our Online Store!
