Lingerie  is the number one item that can decide how pretty you feel today, so what you wear next to your skin has to feel and look good. What’s the modern criteria for smashing smalls? Comfort and fit are a given, technology today has helped create a better bra (and panties) for all, so go ahead and choose your luxury and everyday items with a focus on colour, style and the je ne sais quois of something less ordinary. You don’t have to search far for special – have a look at these lovely brands from around the world. You may not know them – but they seem to know us.
