Mis-matched lingerie

By Elaine Scully Styling

Admit it girls, for the most part we don't wear matching lingerie............good news - in the bedroom this can work to your advantage. Just like balancing your shape with figure flattering clothing, you can also balance your figure when your clothes are off. Achieve this by deciding which of your curves get the most attention by either choosing to wear; an eye catching bra teamed with plain thong/panties; or plain no fuss bra with stop and stare knickers. In other words if you love your boobs, enhance them with print, frills and colour. Prefer your bootie then that's where you place the print.

Check out the fabulous curvy Plus-size model Kate Geraghty in a recent shoot I styled for photographer Maria McGrail, makeup my Alana Witter. All clothes and accessories from Penneys Ireland.
