It finally feels like Spring has sprung on the east coast after a long, cold gray winter. The warmer temperatures turn a lingerie expert’s to thoughts of the next season. Here are some products that have come across my desk that are particularly good for the Summer to come.
Knock Out outerwear
Solutions garments come to workout wear with Knock Out Panties“Workout Warriors” line. The yoga pants are made from the company’s wicking and odor absorbing fabric. The gusset is lined with their patented liner material, which means no undies required. In addition to the function, the yoga pants offer some fashion details via seaming and a ruffled hemline.
Other items in the Workout Warriors line include a yoga bra, sport thong, and a reversible t-shirt, with a V-neck on one side and scoop neck on the other. All items sport the wicking and odor control properties – always a bonus during the sticky, sweaty months of summer.
Curvy Kate Swim
Curvy Kate, has entered the swim market with a range of offerings that are both on trend and consistent with the Curvy Kate brand personality — fun, flirty and flattering. The bra-style swim tops are supportive, enabling full-busted women a wide range of options in sizes up to a K-cup.
The sample I tried offers a short bottom with an adjustable drawstring side that allows for a customizable, flattering fit.
Warmer weather seems to go hand-in-hand with exposed bra straps – but it doesn’t have to be. Some brands have begun offering J-hooks in some bras (Chantelle and Panache are just a couple) but for everyone else, there’s Tweakerz.
Tweakerz is hypoallergenic, customizable – designed to enable the wearer to decide the amount of adjustment in the back. The more the straps are brought to the center, the more the breasts can be lifted for enhanced cleavage, or simply altered to convert to a racerback style. Each item offers a 3.5 inch range of variation and adjustability.
