Classic lingerie, like black, nude or red bras and panties never go out of style. But sometimes you just want to elevate your underwear game to add a little oomph to your look. Enter the sexiest trend in intimates that anybody can pull off - tattoo effect lingerie.
As the term implies, a blend of lace, embroidery and sheer fabric is used to create lingerie that looks like it is printed on the skin, akin to a tattoo. Tattoo-inspired inner things are often designed with minimal push-up padding, which adds to the sexy, natural effect of the overall look. They are comfortable yet sensual and suitable for all skin tones and body types - what’s not to love? Here are our top tattoo print picks to cop to get this look effortlessly.
Back to black
It’s practically impossible to go wrong with black, so if you are just starting to diversify your lingerie wardrobe, start here. Plus, there are plenty of tattoo effect designs in this sexy shade, so you can be assured of finding a style that best suits your personal taste.
Our favourite tattoo-print bras include the Bluebella Asmin bra and Pleasure State’s Kinoko Kinbaku soft cup bra. The plunge top style allows for fuller boob coverage while showcasing the exquisite embroidery and lacing to full effect.
Other unique yet wearable styles include Atelier Amour’s Irresistible Attraction triangle bra and Edge O’ Beyond’s Maria bra. The latter even comes with delicately placed ‘o’ rings so you can attach body jewellery to your bra for an additional touch of glamour.
Those who like a little boost will love the Bluebella Ariella bra which has an underwire and the Bracli Vienna bra, which features adjustable cross straps for a natural lift.
Pure and light
Why not switch things up a little with white lace for an avant garde tattoo effect? The Edge O’ Beyond Tamara bra features an intricate eyelash lace and stunning gold hardware that make it perfect for times when you want to feel extra special. The cutouts on the bra cups make this ultra sexy and like all Edge O’ Beyond pieces, you can even attach body jewellery to the bra.
Spring has sprung and there’s no better way to welcome the season of flowers than by wearing florals. The Edge O’ Beyond Daisy bra is an exquisite piece featuring bespoke embroidery specially crafted in the UK. The sweet pastel florals form an eye-catching pattern across the bust while adjustable strapping at the back ensures an ideal fit. For maximum effect, wear this with the matching suspenders and briefs or thongs.
With multiple styles to experiment with, we predict that tattoo effect lingerie is one trend that’s here to stay. Discover your new favourite pieces, now available at Avec Amour. xx
