10 brilliantly bold lingerie sets for summer

Figleaves Pulse Bra Lingerie set orange and blue lace high street neon colourful underwear summer style

Summer is (apparently) coming, and with it comes festivals, holidays, warm weather and slightly more skin on show than usual. All in all, it’s the perfect time to fill your underwear drawer with sunshine, too.

The spring summer ‘19 catwalks were a rainbow of highlighter shades and playful printed separates. And this vision of sunshine hasn’t just inspired us to invest in these key pieces: it’s also prompted us to find the perfect underwear for underneath too.

What could be better than an acid bright bra under one of Rejina Pyo’s short-sleeved crinkle silk lime or lilac shirts? Or a matching orange strap peeping through under one of Tibi’s sleeveless tangerine knits? Or a pastel blue bikini style bra under a Michael Kors Hawaiian shirt?

With or without these key items, we find it far more comfortable peeling off the layers on the tube or in a beer garden knowing there’s potential only to reveal a flash of saturated colour rather than something reminiscent of old bandages. Vibrant orange and pink hues feel fresh for summer, while deeper navy and red will work through to autumn. Trust us, if you needed any encouragement to retire some old favourites, this is it. 

Here are our favourite sets that are available to buy now.

  • Tu Tangerine Eyelash Lace Bra

    Tu DD+ Tangerine Eyelash Lace Full Cup Bra

    Canary yellow looks great under khaki as well as black, navy and white. This set from Tu is making us happy before we’ve even added it to our baskets.
