Any woman with fashion sense knows she's supposed to wear matching underwear - and the vast majority of UK women do exactly that and wear matching sets!
To mark the launch of this seasons new ranges surveys have revealed that a massive 85% of UK women love to coordinate their lingerie.
Its commonly accepted that wearing matching lingerie is a fantastic way to start the day, boosting your confidence and making you feel super sexy. I never leave the house unless I'm completely coordinated.
The new Adore Moi collection launches today
Mastering the art of matching your lingerie every day can be a challenge, but if you follow these three easy steps it should prove a whole lot easier:
- STOCK UP: The general rule is that you should get 2-3 wears out of your bra before washing. This means that you need a minimum of 3 matching briefs to see you through, so make sure you always stock up and buy your underwear with a 3-1 bra/brief ratio.
- BE WISE WHEN WASHING: when it comes to lingerie, there's nothing more annoying than opening your underwear drawer to find a selection of mismatched bras and briefs. It's my pet hate. So, always wash your sets together and hand wash them rather than machine wash. Not only will this ensure they are treated with extra care and attention, but it will prevent any straying thongs.
- COLOUR CO-ORDINATE: A very simple and effective approach to lingerie is to colour coordinate, allowing you to interchange your briefs and bras. My advice is to pick two or three colours that you wear most, and stick with those - for example, black, white and leopard print. Of course, with patterns and print you might not always get the perfect match, but if it's close enough it counts.
Talking about the launch of her new collection, Michelle said: "The new Adore Moi collection perfectly captures everything that French lingerie stands for - the best fabrics, exquisite attention to detail and a complete understanding of the female form - with a little bit of the je ne sais quoi factor too!"
Do you prefer to wear matching sets?
She added: "French women would never be seen dead in mismatched lingerie, so it's great to see women in the UK catching up!"
