AVI Choosing Lingerie For Your Body Shape
When you purchase lingerie from AVI, make sure it fits you perfectly and flatters your shape, it will make you feel like the sexiest woman in the world. Lingerie should emphasize you best features and gloss over any areas you are not as confident with. Whether you are buying for daily wear, as a lingerie solution or erotic bedroom wear, there are a huge number of styles to choose from. Our expert lingerie guide will help you find the perfect pieces for you.
Bras know your styles
Trust us – there is a bra out there for anyone. For those looking for some lift, choose padded, plunging styles for maximum cleavage exposure. AVI's unique range of cleavage booster’s use a mix of built-in, graduating padding and removable enhancers to boost your boobs by one, two or even three cup sizes.
For those blessed in the boob department, go for uplifting balconette styles that focus on supporting your boobs and holding them in place. Because we know you want a sexy cleavage at any size, a selected range of our plunge bras are available up to a G cup.
Corsets Support and Structure
In need of some support? Our cami suspenders provide some extra structure under tight-fitting outfits. They use flattering powermesh panels for light support, crafting a smooth silhouette that adjusts to your figure with hook and eye fastenings. The cups provide support and uplift, with many using padding for an extra lift. Cannot bear to hide them away? They are popular in the bedroom, too.
Look to our vintage-inspired shapes to help create or enhance your curves. Our gorgeous, bestselling waspies help emphasize your waist while covering your tummy, and our beautiful Basques and Corsets use light boning and lace-up backs to create the illusion of a waist.
Babydolls Sexy Lingerie
When it comes to sexy bedroom wear, there are more options than you might think. Our range of erotic bras are perfect for framing smaller boobs, with naughty quarter and demi cup bras teasing and revealing. Slinky chemises show off toned figures, while the body-confident can reveal all with our sexy bodystockings.
For curvy women, babydolls are perfect for emphasizing your boobs, with sexy chiffon or lace skirts that float over any areas you’re not as confident with. For something skimpier, aprons provide all the appeal of erotic sets with a little extra coverage down your middle, while still showing off your curves.
AVI Lingerie Buying Guide For Men
Want to buy her some sexy lingerie? Lucky girl! It may seem like a minefield, but armed with a few tips and tricks, buying the perfect gift is easy. AVI are dedicated to making every woman feel sexy, confident and fearless, and our gorgeous lingerie just does that. Remember – think about what she’ll like to wear, not just what you’d like to see her in!
Follow our 4 easy steps to getting it right.
Take it from us – when it comes to her bra size, it’s best not to guess. It’s easy to find out her correct size – just have a sneaky peak in her lingerie drawer and have a look at the labels. Some women wear more than one size, so have a look at a few and pick the most common. You’re looking for a number followed by a letter, or two – we do sizes 32A to a 42H.
Red/Black Plunge Bra
Colour and Style
While you’re looking for the size, take note of the colours. It’s best to buy a colour she’ll wear a lot. When in doubt, black is a classic, timeless option that’s always sexy while being wearable, and red feels extra-special. If she’s not into bust-boosters, it’s best not to get her something very padded. Lots of our sexy bras come with removable padding so she can get the best of both worlds.
Bras and Beyond
Confused by corsets? Baffled by basques? Well, if you’re looking to buy something exclusively for the bedroom, you could look at something other than a bra. If she’s not entirely body-confident, a sexy babydoll enhances her best assets and provides a little extra coverage. Skimpy camis and bodies are ideal for confident girls, and all come in normal dress sizes (8-24). Perfect if you’re not sure about her bra size!
Completing the set is a must. Make sure you buy the matching knickers – try to find out if she has a preferred type. Thongs are the skimpiest and can be worn with tight-fitting clothes, shorts provide a little extra coverage and briefs are popular for daily wear. For a thoughtful finishing touch, add a matching suspender belt, stockings or something naughty like a blindfold.
AVI The Perfect Bra Fit Guide
Did you know that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size?
That means the majority of us are walking around with baggy cups, loose straps or the dreaded ‘quad boob’. Not only is this uncomfortable, it’s seriously underselling our best assets. A properly fitting bra can make you feel secure, sexy and even up to two dress sizes slimmer.
Find your sexiest fit:
1. The Band
The band should sit straight the whole way around. It should feel firm but not tight – try running two fingers around the band. If you can fit more than two fingers underneath or the band rides up at the back, try going down a size.
2. The Straps
The straps should sit across your shoulders without sliding off. If they dig in or leave a mark, they’re too tight; try going down a band size. If the band isn’t supportive enough, the straps are left to carry the weight of your boobs.
3. The Centre Front
Located between the cups, the centre front of your bra should sit flat against your body, without digging in. If it’s coming away from your body, try going up a cup size – it’s likely your boobs need some more room.
4. The Wires
When putting on your bra, scoop your boobs from the side and sweep them forward. The underwire should sit along the natural root of your breast, close to your underarm. If the area feels uncomfortable or you spill out at the sides, try going up a cup size.
5. The Cups
Once you done the ‘scoop and sweep’, you boobs should fit comfortably inside the cups. If they’re spilling over into a ‘quad boob’, you need to go up a size. If the cups gape, try sizing down.
