Colour & Texture: The Cute Side of Dopamine Dressing
The world has gone Barbie mad and it looks like the hot pink Barbiecore trend is here to stay! This welcome mood booster is all about embracing vibrant hues, but why stop at hot pink? This year, designers are throwing caution to the wind, adding a bright pallet to their collections to move us away from the traditional whites, blacks and nudes that so often take over our lingerie drawers.
On the subject of dopamine dressing, don’t underestimate the power of textures too. If you want to elevate your lingerie game, designs featuring lace, silk and tencel mean your underwear is super soft against the skin and would give cashmere a run for its money. Look out for textured collections at Uplifted Lingerie to start feeling super sleek as you go about your day.

Comfortable Underwiring: Bridging Fashion and Function
Wireless loungewear had its moment during the slouchy days of lockdowns, but let's face it—some of us miss the old-world charm and hold of wired bras. Especially now that we've ditched our sweatpants and reintegrated into, you know, society. Our collection of wired bras is designed to blend comfort and style seamlessly. From everyday wear to stylish evenings, there is a whole selection of wired bras that have got your back (and front!)

With centre-pull straps to prevent slippage and a padded hook and eye closure, it's the ultimate blend of comfort and chic.
Pretty Styles That Say: "Hey, Look at Me!"
You don't have to keep your lingerie a secret anymore. The bras are coming out from under the shadows and taking centre stage in full limelight. Bralettes and bodies are not just to be worn but to be shown—under blazers, unbuttoned shirts, and just about any outerwear you fancy. After all, if you're strutting in eye-catching lingerie, it would be a fashion crime to keep it under wraps.

Its three-section cup with side support doesn't just offer robust support and shape but elevates your style with a sheer top cup and an inviting V-neck plunge that's as flattering as it is flirty.
Let's not forget the limited-stretch straps and adjustable hook-and-eye closure that ensure a custom, comfy fit. With plenty of colours to choose from, you can make a pretty powerful statement every day of the week!
Lingerie Shows: The Catwalk Underneath
If icons of high fashion like Fendi and Bally are putting bras and lingerie sets centre stage, it's high time we acknowledge that lingerie isn't just an undergarment—it's high fashion hidden in plain sight. Imagine slipping into a matching set so exquisite, it feels like it just strutted off the runway at Milan Fashion Week.
That's the power of good lingerie. It gives you a confidence boost and the feeling that you're not just walking to work, you're sashaying your way through the day. Elevate your wardrobe with gorgeous designs like the secret garden print from Fantasie, that wouldn't be out of place in the front rows of fashion month.

But beauty and sustainability aren't the only stars of the show here; the Adelle offers unparalleled comfort and support with its three-piece cups and side support. With wide wiring and lined top cups for bigger sizes, you get that extra cushion and assurance you need.
Designed for great uplift and forward projection, it transforms you into the epitome of catwalk-worthy glam. Available in sizes 30D-40FF and in sleek shades of Black, Natural, and White in addition to blossom, the Adelle is a must-try, must-love, must-show-off piece for 2023.
Loungewear Ideas: Goodbye Sweatpants, Hello Comfort Chic!

Invest in loungewear-inspired lingerie from Uplifted Lingerie, and you'll be wondering why you didn't make the switch sooner.

The Royce Blossom Support Bra not only offers a choice of necklines, but it is also ideal if you are looking for a comfortable and supportive bra that doesn’t quite fit ‘loungewear’ and doesn’t come with wires.
This bra offers exceptional softness and gentle support and is made from high-quality materials. The breathable fabric keeps you cool and the wireless design means you can avoid the discomfort of underwires whilst you relax and lounge around.
One of the best things about this bra is that it can also be worn as a crop top meaning it's both perfect to sleep in, relax, or wear ruched down for a plunging neckline to give you a different style during the day!
