Winter is the season that makes us yearn for warmth, love and connection with our loved ones. We fight over a place round the fire, gorge ourselves on lovely pastries, warm snacks and hot drinks, squabble over the television controls and snuggle happily into wonderful knitted jumpers, gloves and hats. We look longingly out of the window waiting for the first signs of snow and eagerly pack up our summer wardrobes and bring down the winter clothes ready to face the colder weather with appropriate style and comfort.
But while you are updating your winter wardrobe this year why not consider your underwear? Light summery colours and pastel shades are probably not the colours of the outer garments you are going to wear through winter so why not add a splash of seasonal colour to your lingerie drawer too.
There are many stunning bras and briefs in wonderful deep rich colours that you can only wear in winter, so allow us to introduce you to some exciting options that will get your winter off to a sizzling start.
Scarlett from Rosa Faia has been a consistent best seller since it was launched and it’s easy to see why with its beautiful lace cups and pretty detailed embroidery. A female journalist from a leading UK paper tried a sample of Scarlett last month and she sent a glowing report back to us saying: “It’s the best bra I’ve ever had for fit and support!”
We were thrilled of course but then we already knew that Anita bras really are second to none when it comes to comfort and fit. This is partly due to the clever use of the C-shaped wires which not only offer stability but also move with the wearer. The underwires lie gently on the skin enclosed in a soft underwire band that is padded on the inside.
Anyway Scarlett is available this winter in a fabulously rich new colourway – Amparo Blue – a vivid bold colour that will really add the wow factor to your bra wardrobe.
Another stunning colour for your winter wardrobe is this fabulous Silver Mint which is one of the latest colours for the popular Josephine bra from Rosa Faia.
This lovely bra comes in an underwired version with an ornate embroidered band in the upper cup as well as a soft bra, as a contour underwire bra and a moulded underwire bra for wearing under t-shirts. The underwired styles go up to an H cup.
Valentina from the Anita Comfort range is an elegant and sophisticated bra offering superb support and comfort with discreet side breast supports and padded comfort straps. Newly available in this lovely Autumnal Mauve it would make a warm addition to your colourful winter wardrobe.
There’s no need to miss out on a colour injection just because you are expecting a baby either. Just feast your eyes on this stunning Berry Red Fleur from Anita Maternity. Pregnancy can be a time when we don’t feel quite as confident about how we look but treating ourselves to a bright splash of colour like this will do loads to improve body image.
If you are looking for brightly coloured mastectomy bras then they don’t come much hotter than Ella here in Cayenne Red. Pocketed on both sides with pretty lace embroidery this is a fab choice to chase winter blues away once and for all.
Winter begins in the UK this year on Saturday December 21 at 12:11pm. Apparently it is based on the Winter Solstice, the moment when the sun’s rays are at their lowest for the year and the days are the shortest in the northern hemisphere. So officially then girls, the time to switch your lingerie into fabulous winter colours is around lunchtime on December 21st !
