Big Drunk Satanic Massacre

Sculpt your figure, lift wholesale christmas costumes your bust AND boost your confidence: Yes! You can wear sexy lingerie in your 50s

Flick through any lingerie catalogue and you’d be forgiven for thinking only girls in their 20s bought fashionable undies. For anyone older, it’s all too easy to get stuck in a lingerie rut. But when you hit your 50s it’s a crucial time for an underwear update, thanks to hormone changes that can drastically alter not only your body shape, but your bra size, too. While the menopause can cause cup and back size to increase, the fullness of your breasts can often decrease.

So what can you do if you want sexy, supportive, yet age-appropriate lingerie? With a lack of advice for shoppers of a certain age, it can be hard to know where to start and what styles are flattering. We asked experienced bra fitter Kelly Dunmore, from lingerie experts Rigby & Peller, to give her tips for buying underwear that’ll make you feel slim, sexy and supported once you hit your 50s — and beyond . 

 ‘A foam padded bra will look and feel odd as you just won’t fill up the cups. Instead, go for unpadded satin or lace, which will mould to you and make the most of what you have.’  Try a bra like this one, which is designed in a silkier fabric that offers a smooth line without foam. And bright colours like this hot pink aren’t just for twenty-somethings. ‘If you’ve got highlights or your hair’s a darker shade, you can still wear bright colours,’ assures Kelly.

‘You need a firm bust to create a cleavage, as all plunge or push-up bras do is push your breasts together. Instead, if you’re a C cup or below, she recommends a three-quarters cup style, like this one. ‘A half cup can sit too low while a full cup only  really works if you can fill  it properly.’

Made of pretty lace, this bra clings to your natural shape, ensuring a good fit whatever size you are up top.

'If you worry about feeling exposed, go for knickers like these, which give a lengthening effect corset skirts setswithout making you feel like you’re showing too much. A DRESS TO. IMPRESSFirm control waist sculpt slip, £32.50, and T-shirt bra, £22.50, marksand spencer.com

The beauty of an ‘underbust dress’ such as this is that you can get all the benefits of a full body-shaping garment, without having to bin your favourite bra. ‘It’s a fact of life that as we fight gravity over the years, our skin loses its tautness,’ says Kelly.

‘So, if you’ve developed a bit of a tummy or are conscious of your bottom wobbling, this is perfect. And you can wear one of these no matter how tall or short you are. It holds everything in and gives you that extra confidence boost underneath a fitted dress. You can team it with your usual bra and as the dress comes up high, you won’t get any unsightly bulge in between.’
