‘The new lingerie is all about body confidence, comfort, versatility, and performance.
As the demand for functional fabrics continues to increase, we can also see this trend in lingerie. The innovative, “ready for real life” fabrics are creating flowing garments with a feminine touch, transforming women into body positivity activists. The natural and body-shaping lingerie is poised between a harmonious silhouette and functional comfort. The fabrics move with you, every which way. The multi-tasking garments are fulfilling multiple purposes, delivering comfort, performance and simple yet unique design. The seamless technology makes the new lingerie items more comfortable. The lingerie is more about the wearer and less about who might be looking at her. The elevated essentials for 2019 include a super comfortable wire free bra, a flattering bodysuit, a versatile tank with a built-in bra, and, of course, the leak-proof underwear.
According to David Shah, trend forecaster, editor of Textile New and coordinator of MarediModa Trend Board, the apparel sector is undergoing a total reconstruction. Following in the footsteps of athleisure movement, leisurée is making its way into the wardrobe as the new underwear trend that combines the best of athleisure with lingerie, resulting in beautiful but comfortable designs. The brands are embracing different female experiences and bodies, focusing on inclusivity and designing genderless clothes that are purposeful.
“All the creativity right now is coming from the activewear brands, who can offer a clear, impactful and motivational story, combining heritage, classical references and recognisable style and simplicity with new values, new role models and ideas. Nothing like this is coming from ordinary apparel companies,” said David. “Hip hop stars and skaters are the new royalty, streetwear is the new luxury, and the pop-up culture is changing the way we as consumers are reached out to by the brands – we are now offered more than just clothes, we are now part of something meaningful.”
Here is the perfect assortment of must-haves with the right compromise between innovation and aesthetic look.
