Winter is finally on its way out and we couldn’t be happier! If you’re anything like me, you’ll have found yourself wearing cosy knitted jumpers and leggings all winter but now that spring is just around the corner, it’s time to break out the t-shirts and dresses again. With any wardrobe change-over, you need to think about your lingerie too. Your old faithful black and beige options may have kept you going through winter, but injecting a pop of colour into your lingerie really brings those spring and summer outfits to life and the new SS18 range from Curvy Kate is aaalll about the bright and beautiful! Here’s a quick round up of what’s on offer, so you can pick the right style for you:
The T-Shirt Bra – Smoothie Soul Navy
A staple style for summer and warm weather, t-shirt bras offer a smooth and seam-free finish for an invisible look under clothes. Curvy Kate’s Smoothie Soul range is an ideal choice, and the SS18 Navy shade is just gorgeous! The navy blue comes from a lightweight geometric mesh overlaying a bright aqua blue base, giving it a two-tone effect. There are no seams in sight as the cup is fully moulded, with a plunging shape that’s perfect for under those v-necks this season! The straps are fully adjustable and there’s also a handy little j-clip that lets you convert it to a racerback – ideal for hiding pesky straps under your racerback tops, plus it adds even more support. If you’re not into the navy, it’s also available in your basic black and nude, and with limited sizes left in the AW17 mulberry colour. Matching brazilian brief available.
The ‘Worn to be Seen’ Bra – Jinx Black/Almond
Combining strapping detail with everyday wearability, the Jinx plunge bra is a new addition to the Curvy Kate family. Embracing the sports luxe trend with clean lines and thick banding detail, the over bust strapping is made to be seen peeking over the top of your summer dresses. The cups are lined with a thin, lightweight foam that helps to shape and define your bust, with a low centre gore and plunging neckline to really boost your cleavage. The thick elastic around the band of the bra adds style and stability for a perfectly supportive fit. Available up to a 40J and with fully adjustable straps, it’s at the top of our must-have list for this season! Matching short available.
The Stretch Lace Bra – Ellace Hot Pink
A stretch lace bra is a game changer for anyone with boobs, but especially so those who have asymmetrical boobs, top heavy boobs, or boobs that fluctuate in size throughout the month (hello period boobs)! Curvy Kate’s Ellace bra is loved by many already, but the bubblegum pink colour for SS18 has us doing some major heart eyes! The lace design is fun and feminine, with an incredible stretch power that moulds to your unique bust shape. The bottom cups are opaque and ensure there’s no loss of support, fashioned in a classic three section balconette cup that gives you a subtle lift. In sizes up to a 40K and 42-44G, it’s a must have for every lingerie drawer this season. If you’re not convinced by the bright pink, there’s a whole load of other colours available including your staple black, white and nude. Matching brazilian brief available.
The Everyday Solution Bra – Daily Dream Pink Mix
A padded balconette bra is a great option for anyone. Don’t let the term ‘padded’ put you off – Daily Dream has been designed to not add any volume or bulk to your bust, and the foam lining is there to help your bust stay supported and provide lift! Known amongst Curvy Kate fans as the ‘cloud bra’, it really is like a cloud for your boobs thanks to the soft fabrics and mega comfortable fit. This season sees a bold pink colour introduced, with an added lace trim to the top edge of the cup. It isn’t a t-shirt bra so it won’t be completely smooth under clothes, but it will provide maximum support and some serious oomph making it a perfect every day option. The size range covers up to a 40K, with 42-44 D-G as well. Also available in nude and black and with limited sizes still available in past season shades indigo and aqua. Matching brazilian brief available.
The Sheer and Sultry Bra – Sheer Joy Black Print
If you prefer a sheer cup, then the Curvy Kate Sheer Joy balconette bra is the one for you. Don’t let the sheer cups fool you, the structure of this bra ensures that there’s no loss of support and it’s available through D-K cups. The blue floral print is just perfect for spring, and the lightweight structure means it’s easy and comfortable to wear when the weather gets warmer. Finished with fully adjustable straps, it’s an ideal way to add some sassiness to your everyday sets this season! Matching brazilian brief available.
The Up-and-In Bra – Victory Electric Blue
The Victory bra from Curvy Kate is the brand’s first shape featuring a four-part cup, designed to push your boobs up and in from the sides to get a lifted, rounded shape. Already available in nude and black, the gorgeous electric blue shade is just perfect for SS18. It combines the right amount of opaque and sheer with clever panelling on the cups, and minimalistic details like the dainty ‘v’ charm and cut out to the gore really bring it all together. With an impressive 30D-40K and 42D-44G size range available, it’ll give you the pop of colour you need this season. Matching short available.
The Fun and Flirty Bra – Dottie Violet
Dottie is a new design for Curvy Kate this season, offering an affordable but stylish way to update your undies. The bright violet tone is beautiful with contrasting pink ribbons, but if you’re not feeling the bold tone it’s also available in black. The non-padded balconette shape is constructed from sheer mesh in three parts for a rounded shape and subtle lift, with added support from the polka-dot embroidered overlay to the bottom cups. Keep things young and playful with this beautiful bra, available up to a 40HH. Matching short available.
The Sweet and Innocent Bra – Princess Lemon
There are a couple of moulded and padded plunge bras in Curvy Kate’s SS18 collection, but we’ve also got the non-padded option too! Princess is one of Curvy Kate’s signature styles, and the new lemon colour way just screams summer to us. Available in plunge and balconette shapes, they both feature the same gorgeous lemon tone mesh with the cute raised polka dot flocking and white ribbon detailing. The plunge style is available up to a 40J, with the balconette coming in up to a 40K and 42-44 D-G. There’s an array of other colours available if you’re not into the mellow yellow tone, including your black and white basics and last season’s rose pink. Matching brazilian brief available.
The Colourful Everyday Bra – Blossom Red Print
If you’re looking for something suitable for everyday that’s lightweight and supportive without being sheer or padded, the Curvy Kate Blossom balconette falls right in the middle and is perfect for you. With a classic, three section balconette cup it ensures great support and shape, with laminated bottom cups to reinforce the lift. It’s totally on trend with the bold floral print and sheer red mesh, whilst pink edging detail clashes in the best way and really gives it a twist. It’s very similar to the Vegas and Tropics bras, so if you loved those then you’ll be sure to love this too! It’s available to purchase up to a 40K, with 42-44 D-G too. Matching short available.
The Shelf Lift Bra – Tease Navy/Blush
Sometimes you just want that cakes-on-a-plate look, whether it’s to show off on a night out or under your low neck summer dresses and we’ve got the bra for that – Curvy Kate Tease! The Tease balconette bra has been a staple style in every season so far and always proves popular. It has foam lining in the cups that helps to give that va va voom, while the vertical seams direct your bust up to give that rounded shelf lift. The vintage design of ribbon and lace is charming and playful, and reminiscent of old school pin-up models. SS18 sees a slightly different take on the colourway, with a blush base and navy blue overlay as opposed to the usual black over a bold colour. Available through to a 38J, it’s a must for anyone who wants to add some vintage flair to their lingerie! Pair it with the suspender short (with removable suspender straps) or the skirted thong for a style that suits you.
The Double Trouble Bra – Dragonfly Black/Pink
It’s bold. It’s sexy. It ticks ALL our boxes! The Dragonfly range from Curvy Kate is a new design for SS18, and features super trendy double straps at the shoulders for a fashionable twist. The black mesh showcases strategic applique to conceal your nipples in a stunning bold violet tone, decorated with contrasting hot pink embroidery and edging details. It features a long-line style band that extends further than your typical bra, which helps to provide more support and feels as comfortable as a hug. There’s also a babydoll available which is just as gorgeous, and the range is available up to a 40J, with 42-44 D-G also available. Matching brazilian brief available.
The Sheer Plunge Bra – Lifestyle Red
Love the look of Victory but can’t wear a balconette? Give Lifestyle a go! This sheer cup plunge bra from Curvy Kate offers a great shape, fashioned in supportive yet sheer mesh with clean lines for a modern style. Plunging cups showcase your cleavage and bring the girls in from the side for a great shape. The double ring hardware detail is super chic, and the bold red colour is perfect for this time of year! If you’re looking for minimalistic, the Lifestyle plunge bra is for you. Also available in your lingerie must-have black and nude tones with a matching short for all three colours.
