Lingerie Brands No Matter Your Body Shape | Clozette


There’s a reason why retail therapy is such a confidence booster — there’s nothing like picking a garment off a rack and putting it on to find that it fits like a glove. And that includes what shopping for what's underneath the clothes. We believe that people should feel and look good in what they wear, especially in this age of inclusivity. So ahead, we've listed down lingerie brands in Malaysia that will take your breath away with their gorgeous selection of innerwear made for all body types.

As Asian women tend to have smaller and narrower frames, sometimes you can’t quite relate to models seen wearing lingerie conventional brands. Thankfully for us, the founders of Jujumello realised this as well and made it their mission to create a collection of sexy and super cute lingerie that accentuates the waistline and legs instead of the typical assets.

Dreamscape

This brand has been in the market for some years now and is well-known for its trendy options that are great for both work and play. Dreamscape started their foray into lingerie with adhesive bras as an accompaniment to their clothes, and the rest is history. They have a large range of lingerie sets, sleepwear and loungewear — modelled by Asians so you get a more accurate representation of your body type.


Made of Lace

Sultry and luxurious, Made of Lace made it their business to bring bodysuits and bralettes, which are often suggested as daywear instead of being hidden away as lingerie, to the forefront. The collections, which suit petite to plus-sized ladies, are created with high-quality lace and premium silk to keep you feeling good from day to night.

Inspired by French ateliers, Fumee offers Malaysian women dainty undergarments handmade with silk, satin and French lace. The brand encourages women to enjoy the finer things in life through their designs that feature an assortment of styles — bralette sets, bodysuits, corsets, and even bridal lingerie for the modern woman.

It’s been more than a decade since this iconic series hit our screens — can you believe that? And now, word is that Gossip Girl is returning, thanks to HBO Max. That’s right; your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite will be back thanks to Warner Media’s upcoming streaming service. But don’t expect this to focus on the lives of our favourite Upper East Siders in their 30s because this remake will be a completely re-imagined version. Turns out, Chace Crawford was right in his predictions: this 10-episode Gossip Girl reboot would seem to be turning our attention to a different set of teens.

The original’s showrunner and writer Joshua Safran will be part of the production. Like the original series, this one will also be based on a book written by Cecily von Ziegesar. Since the series first ran back in 2007 when social media was just taking off, the Gossip Girl reboot is expected to be quite different, seeing how social media and the whole of New York has changed since.


Aside from its intriguing storylines, the original became the biggest pop culture sensation for its fashion. With that, we can’t wait to see if this Gossip Girl reboot would be serving us looks that slay. It might be a while before we can witness it for sure, since there’s no release date set yet. So, while waiting, let’s take a look back at our favourite Gossip Girl outfits that graced our TVs years back.

 

Preppy schoolgirl

Who would forget Blair Waldorf and her completely preppy style that brightened up her otherwise boring uniform in the earlier seasons?  Wherever you look, ladies back then sported bow headbands and cute tights inspired by the Queen B’s iconic Gossip Girl outfits.



Laid-back chic

In contrast to B’s charming looks, her best friend Serena was more known for showcasing a more laid-back look throughout the show. Chic streetwear perfect for days off were her signature as she always paired blazers or vests with skinny bottoms and high-heeled boots.

While we love Jenny’s charming outfits in the first parts of the show, she really truly shined when her Gossip Girl outfits underwent a transformation. She no longer was a Blair-wannabe and she owned her personality once she started wearing those emo rocker numbers complemented by her dark vintage sunnies.



Sassy and edgy

She may be Manhattan’s resident bad girl, but Georgina’s looks always slayed whenever she appeared on the screen. She was known for her interesting penchant for dark metallics and leathers, making her edgy style as sassy as her character.



Boho hipster

When we looked for bohemian fashion inspiration, we turned to Vanessa Abrams and her colourfully creative Gossip Girl outfits. Our fave Lower East Side rep’s free-spirited side shone when she donned this colour-blocked boho dress accessorised with an oversized turquoise necklace for an event.



Golden Glamour

Speaking of formalwear, Serena’s party outfits were also something to behold. People would argue that our golden girl’s white party dress was the best, but this golden deep-v ensemble of hers complemented her blonde locks more.

Last but not the least, of course, is Blair’s wedding dress. Who says brides only look good in white? Though the way she and Chuck tied the knot was quite spontaneous, they kept it dreamy and romantic with this bedazzled Ellie Saab gown.

It's a shame that articles like these need to be written nowadays. From the unpredictable weather to air pollution, the world is not the same as it was before. Yes, we have to deal with the changes in a practical way, but there's also something we can do to reduce our carbon footprint and live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Now going back to our topic, if you're living in an urban area, chances are you encounter air pollution on a daily basis. Previously, we talked about anti-pollution skincare lines geared towards protecting and repairing the skin against the detrimental effects of air pollution. This time, let's talk about how to keep light clothes, especially white items, pristine even after a long commute in the city. Ahead, our top tips.


P.S. Here are steps you can take to help reduce air pollution. 


Wear a bold outerwear



The easiest way to keep your white clothes looking pristine is to wear bold outerwear to serve as a cover-up while you go about your commute. Why a bold third piece instead of just a plain one? To jazz up your style, of course! While neutral shades such as beige are the most intuitive choice to pair with white, this ensemble does have a tendency to look boring. But a bold black jacket or even a printed long cardigan can amp up your style in a jiffy. 


Layer on



Another easy trick that you can do is to layer a vest, bustier or sheer clothing under a white top. Not only does it give your look a more interesting detail, but it will also keep your white clothes from getting dirty. All you have to do is mix and match to see what looks right for your personality.


Go for off-white or floral-printed pieces



If wearing crisp white makes you feel too conscious, you can try off-white pieces or white clothes with prints instead. The off-white hue and the little printed details can divert attention from any small smudges or discolouration. Top it off with eye-catching accessories, and you're done.


Get ruffled



Like prints, wearing white items with ruffles, pleats and eyelets are also good options to camouflage any discolourations or stains that you might have gotten during your commute. When wearing these flamboyant clothing designs, always remember to keep everything else simple so you'll still look sleek and elegant. 



Pick light fabrics



Light fabrics like tulles or chiffons are less likely to accumulate dirt from air pollution. And if they did, you will have an easier time washing the dirt off come laundry day. Pair them with other cutesy pieces for a whimsical look.
