Summertime… and the livin’ is far from easy! Calendars actually get busier with social occasions and outdoor events. Longer days are full of potential and we tend to cram more in because of this. At the same time, the season’s outfits are more revealing. We might be talking about floaty, clingy fabric, or shorter hemlines, sleeves and strappy tops and dresses. There’s less fabric and what’s there tends to be less forgiving. This is why a summertime wardrobe isn’t complete without the right pair of control briefs. What to wear when, though?
Underwear for a day-into-night wedding has to be budge proof! It has to support you through long periods of standing, eating a meal, and potentially exuberant dancing… These ever popular firm compression control briefs fit the bill here. The high waist design not only shapes your waist and lifts your bum, but it’ll also support your lower back too.
Of course, if you’re the bride then check out these shorts for a cool and sexy knicker option!
Convenience is the most important thing when it comes to festivals. Underwear absolutely must be portaloo friendly! You’ll be dancing, drinking and potentially wading through mud. The best thing is to go for is something that has gentle, high waisted support without active compression. You’ll feel secure, but able to let loose at the same time.
Whether or not it’s in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, a garden party always feels like it requires a certain elegance! You’re probably looking for a foundation for a light sundress or linen tailoring. What works here is shapewear that offers a bit more coverage without too much compression. Look at gently supportive shaping shorts for good coverage around your hips and thighs.
The classic Summer BBQ: the only time of year when we’re required to consume 4 different types of meat and a spoonful of every salad under the sun! This is a casual social event that is ideal for lighter support control briefs. Something like the Uniqua from Wolbar that have a flat seamed finish, is perfect for remaining invisible under those floatier summer fabrics.
Whether you’re on holiday or enjoying a staycation this summer, a theme park may well be on the itinerary. These days are long, active and both exhilarating and exhausting in equal measure. The compression in your underwear on these days is more about security and support than appearance. So these medium compression briefs are ideal, with anti-bac microfibe fabric to keep your skin comfortable all day.
When you’re partying on the beach, underwear should double as swimwear. The temptation to have a dip (yes – even in the UK) is never too far away, especially on balmier afternoons and evenings. Simply Be offer a great range of control swimwear. From high waisted two pieces to flattering crossover styles and even swim dresses, there’s a style for everyone.
This goes for any summer sport spectating really, not just the lucky ones who get to enjoy our favourite annual tennis-fest! Sitting down for long periods of time can cause as much discomfort as rushing around. And when you’ve invested 4 hours into a match, you don’t want to miss the end because your back is aching. So this high waisted girdle is ideal not only to give you a sleek silhouette (you never know when the TV cameras might catch you!) but also to fully support your back.
When you’re dressing for any summer occasion, remember that the most important thing is your comfort. So think about providing support for your body as much as your outward silhouette. The right shapewear can work for both of these things, leaving you feeling and looking fab whatever your favourite summer day out may be!
