Boxer shorts in football prints and innerwear with net inserts are some of the designs that the underwear// and lingerie designers are experimenting with.
Overall, the trend in lingerie this year is tending toward discreet colors and forms with a hint of romance. The seductive undergarments require a little bit of self-restraint.
"There's a lot being tried with embroidery. The garments aren't so opulent, rather more discreet," said Alexandra von Richthofen, an underwear expert quoted in the German trade magazine Textilwirtschaft. Discreet is an important trend for the ladies.
The embroidery creates "coverage" over body parts that can't be seen through on the bras, which are otherwise well ventilated for the warm half of the year. The décolletage is emphasized throughout, but it's not pressed as much as it has been in the past, von Richthofen said.
"The push-up bra is no longer as common," said Anita Mueller, spokeswoman for the lingerie maker Triumph in Munich. Multifunctional bras are now in style. They offer women numerous possibilities with their removable and multi-use straps. They can be worn to fit the woman's mood and desire. With four different varieties - strapless, outerwear, halter neck and cross-strapped - the Triumph models are like the variable décolletage bra.
A change is starting to appear in the design of panties as well.
"The string is clearly on the decline," von Richthofen said. The tendency is moving toward panties and briefs that cover the hips and are cut wider. The greater amount of material needed for this design means the price is higher.
"A panty starts in a higher price class than string underwear," said von Richthofen.
The garments feature small details that give the lingerie a fashionable touch for spring and summer. The designers at Bruno Banani in Chemnitz have decorated their Amour line with light blue and rose-colored hearts. Silver jewellery and rubies besPage: 1 2 Related medicine news :1
