Whether you’re looking for lingerie or sleepwear for yourself for Valentine’s Day – or any day, for that matter, we’ve got just the pieces designed to fit and flatter every body. The Singapore Women’s Weekly’s Editor-in-Chief Barbara Koh had an exclusive peek into Marks & Spencer’s Valentine’s Day collection and we’re revealing the irresistible looks to you.
Barbara met Soozie Jenkinson, Head of Design & Product Direction, Lingerie, Swim & Active, at Marks & Spencer UK, who unveiled the beautiful collection of lingerie and sleepwear at a special press showing at the Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel in London in January.
Feminine floral prints and elegant, delicate lace give the collection that luxurious touch, and clever construction in bras make them seamless yet with great support even for up to DD+ cup sizes.
Fun and flirty or sophisticated and sexy, there’s something to suit your fancy. For instant body confidence, there are the gorgeous coordinating sets from the Rosie for Autograph designs with a stunning mix of silk and French-designed lace.
Marks & Spencer’s knickers are designed to fit and flatter, and besides the much-loved floral lace thongs, criss-cross Brazilian styles and the low-rise short knicker, there’s a new style coming. Soozie shares, “I love holidaying in Miami. And I couldn’t help but notice that the women were wearing this amazing bikini bottom style that was so figure flattering. It’s a high cut style that instantly lengthens the legs! Naturally, this new style is called the Miami.” This style will be available in Singapore from April, but believe us, the wait will be worth it!
Another fab style women will love is the bralet. Well, it’s M&S’s take on the popular lingerie style that’s usually best carried off by A-to-B cuppers. Anything larger and the problem will be boob spillage and the lack of support. Seeing the demand and the gap, Soozie and her team worked on designing a bralet style that C-to-D cuppers could wear with confidence.
The result is a pretty bralet style that provides good coverage and support. Being a D-cupper herself, Editor-in-Chief Barbara appreciated that the bralet has been built with back hooks. She says, “This means I don’t have to struggle with pulling the bralet over my head and over my chest, sports bra style. It’s a simple switch, yet so useful and thoughtful for women who are bustier.” It’s this aim to give women the best confidence-giving underwear that’s made Marks & Spencer the leading brand for lingerie and underwear in the UK.
