Underneath the LBD (And a chance to win a £1000 shopping spree with Ann Summers and Love2Shop)

The Fashion Police have always believed that the right (or wrong) lingerie can make or break an outfit: there’s just no point in splashing out on the perfect dress if you’re going to ruin it with the wrong “underpinnings”, so today we’re teaming up with Ann Summers to bring you some of our favourite bras to wear with a little black dress as part of your Christmas party outfit.

We’re also offering the chance to win a £1,000 shopping spree by entering Ann Summers’ blogger competition, so read on for more information…


little black dress outfit

The Dress: 1950s Trudy party dress, £95. 20th Century Foxy

The Bra:Aurelia’ balconette bra, £40, Ann Summers

The cut of this dress makes finding a bra for it a little bit tricky: the wide shoulders require straps set as far apart as possible, like Aurelia’s, plus a cup that will boost cleavage without protruding above the top of the dress. Balconnette styles work really well in this respect as the cups are cut to remain hidden under low necklines. This one also has removable pads, so you can decide exactly how much of a “boost” you want.

The Accessories: Kate Spade ‘Grande’ bow peep toes; Alice Pearl sparkle necklace;Valentino bow clutchMAC ‘Ruby Woo’ red lipstickCiaté Nail Polish in ‘Mistress’

Here are some other little black dresses, with the bras we’d choose to wear with them:
