The Perfect Housewarming Gift
When it comes to a housewarming gift, you can’t go past a highly-coveted home fragrance. Elevate their new space and add a little cosiness to their home with a scented candle, available in a variety of fragrances and personalities. Try to match the scent to the energy of the new home or the giftees—wanderlust personalities will love exotic fragrances and travel-inspired scents, while those with a green thumb might find inspiration in a fresh, floral-scent candle. Why not also include a matching room spray, diffuser or essential oil to help take the aromatic experience to another level?
T-shirt bras for everyday support
The best T-shirt bras are comfortable, sit smoothly and give just a little lift. For a weekday bra, Natalia suggests Wacoal’s feminine style. The underwire, contour cups and lilac stretch lace create support that moulds to you, while the bra’s creamy colour and detailing work well underneath blouses, shirts and tees for the working week. If you prefer fuller coverage, try Elomi’s underwire bra. Its deep cups, side support and thicker straps make it adaptable to every bust – and it’s available in extended sizing. Another classic is Calvin Klein’s T-shirt bra. The medium-coverage style features lightweight foam cups and convertible straps, and it’s available in a range of skin tones and seasonal shades.
To carry this comfort from day to night, Natalia suggests adding a SKIMS robe to your wind-down routine, saying “it’s super soft, gives just enough warmth and drapes in all the right places”.
Lingerie and date-night bralettes
When shopping for lingerie, Natalia says you don’t need to sacrifice fit for beautiful details. “Lingerie shouldn’t just look great on, it should make you feel great, too,” she says.
If your date-night look is a classic little black dress and a bralette to match, look to Simone Pérèle – an icon of French lingerie. The low-cut style of this bralette will enhance your natural shape for plunging necklines.
Combining the support of a traditional fit with flirtier styles, Fayreform’s underwire and foam-lined cups create cleavage, and this midnight lace style offers a fresh, elegant take on classic lingerie. Dark hues and deep taupe shades are also trending at Fantasie, Triumph and Me. by Bendon this season. “Play into this colour palette with lace, embroidery and plenty of support,” says Natalia.
Wire-free bras for weekend comfort
When keeping cosy and lounging at home, Natalia loves a wire-free option. This seamless Berlei bra is incredibly soft and available in a range of sizes, or Bendon’s Comfit bonding technology creates powerful support if you’re after a little more lift and shaping. Another throw-on-and-go option – and an Australian classic – is Bonds’ stretchy crop tops.
Whichever style you choose, these wire-free staples are perfect to wear under T-shirts, sweaters and knitwear over the weekend. And as Natalia says, “There’s no better bra than one that makes you forget you’re wearing one.”
High-performance sports bras
“Sports bras are notorious for being rigid to wear and tricky to put on,” says Natalia. So the Triumph sports range has adopted traditional hook-and-eye clasps for an easy and adjustable fit. Plus, it’s available in a racerback style to help keep you in place during high-intensity workouts.
If you like to mix up your exercise routine, Berlei’s sports bra is made with breathable mesh and has customisable cross-back straps, so it’s a perfect multi-tasker for relaxed yoga, afternoon jogs and gym sessions.
Another problem-solving pick of Natalia’s is a pair of smooth-edge, seamless briefs from Chantelle. The one-size-fits-most style is available in a range of different cuts (including a thong, brief and full brief), and made with a non-transparent, elastic fabric that forms to your body. You won’t ever have to check for a line in your leggings again.
