We’ve rounded up the best 2019 lingerie trends to shop now: 

1 Ultra Femme

Beautiful, delicate lace is an all-time favourite and a timeless look you will never get bored of. These are the kinds of pieces that make you fall in love with yourself when you look in the mirror. We’re talking delicate sheer garments with feminine details in sugary pastels that leave just enough to the imagination.

Shop this trend:

2 New Nudes

Nude lingerie, in a spectrum of shades, is a big one to watch. This trend goes hand-in-hand with the inclusive range of nudes that brands are increasingly coming out with, after the realisation that not everyone can match the standard three ‘nude’ shades. Gugu Intimates is a great example of a local brand that caters to a wider audience.

Shop this trend:

R730, Wonderbra

3 Modern Sports

Sports-inspired lingerie has made a huge comeback and is here to stay. The ’90s revival of streetwear encouraged women into an era of confidence and comfort. Think melange fabrics, elasticated bands, mesh details and logo-mania details. We are all about that comfortable loungewear life.

Shop this trend:

R229, JT One at Woolworths

4. Matrix Mania

When you’re looking to elevate things in the lingerie department, lust-worthy pieces will perfectly serve your sassy dominatrix alter ego. The best thing about this trend? You can add a little something to your #OOTD by playing peekaboo with strappy bras worn alongside sheer or low-cut tops.
