Forget What You Heard: You Don't Need a Huge Budget to Have Beautiful Lingerie

Your lingerie might be hidden underneath your clothes, but it's still important to get the fit right. After all, your undergarments have a huge impact on how your clothes look (lest we forget about the dreaded VPL). Although, upgrading your underwear drawer can be expensive, especially when you can easily spend quite a few pounds on a new bra. But you don't need a huge budget to have beautiful lingerie. For example, Marks and Spencer is a high-street brand with an excellent underwear department. Another affordable retailer is & Other Stories, which creates beautiful matching sets that are almost always under £40. Want to see some lovely options?

If you love lacy soft-cup bras and bralettes, then & Other Stories is for you. The brand's bras never look low-budget.

There is a reason most British women buy their underwear from M&S. The brand's lingerie team understand that no two women's bodies are the same, therefore creating an impressive lingerie selection.

There's a reason M&S bras are so loved.


H&M is the cheapest of the bunch, but the quality is still strong for the price. Who can argue with a £25 shaping bodysuit?
