Beat the heat with our edit of white lingerie, perfect for Summer. We're here to show you what type of lingerie to wear to help you keep cool during the warmer months. A lot of women struggle with the heat and tend not to change their lingerie with the seasons, but it is crucial that you adapt your lingerie to suit the changing weather just as you do your clothing. This will help in choosing lingerie which is comfortable and helps you go about your daily lives with complete confidence and ease.
When choosing lingerie for the Summer months Firstly, choose fabrics that are thin, wearing heavily moulded or super padded styles under clothing adds layers and can make you feel hotter. So, you need to ensure you choose a bra with thin and breathable fabric to help you regulate the heat. Secondly, you need to choose light colours, as dark coloured lingerie will absorb heat alternatively light colours such as white will help to cool you down as they reflect heat.
Here's a few of our favourite white lingerie ranges >>
Freya Rose Tapestry – Ok it's not all white but the base is and it's one of our favourite new arrivals! A gorgeous range by Freya, the Rose Tapestry is perfect for Summer. The Freya Rose Tapestry features a white base with tapestry style floral print in a rainbow of bright colours. The range is available in a classic Underwired Side Support Bra with matching thong and brief. This range is great to beat the heat as it features a lot of mesh around the cups and power net fabric at the back which not only gives optimum support but allows you to keep cooler as the fabric is lighter. The Freya Rose Tapestry range boasts 4-section cups and side support for ultimate forward projection and uplift, available in sizes 30E – 38J! We love that this range actually has the same style of bra but one designed for up to G cup and the other GG+ as bigger busts need additional support and have different needs Freya caters to this specifically without a 'one bra fits all' ideology.

Our next pick is the new Fantasie Fusion range which we recently blogged about here. The Fantasie Fusion is also a great choice for D+ Cups as it’s a lightweight range with no-padding. The range includes two styles of bras the Average Coverage and Side Support, both great choices depending on what your needs are. The great thing about the Fantasie Fusion is its simplicity – designed for every day wear the range has a clean and modern design made to look 'invisible' under clothing. The range is available in sizes 30D – 40FF with two styles of matching briefs – high waisted and a standard brief and it's also available in Sand. Shop the full range here.
If you don't mind going wire-free – bralettes are also a great option for warmer weather. Many of our bralettes are light and lacy. Bralettes are usually wire free and have minimal to no padding making them good under all types of clothing and good to keep you cool. Bralettes are a style usually favoured for smaller busts though as they generally offer less support and the size range is typically under D cup with smaller back sizes. That being said we have some fabulous options for you to try the Obsessive 3-Piece set is a seductive range in all white lace. Designed with lightly padded cups, no underwire and a soft fabric it's a great feminine range which would look great under a summer dress.
