Underwear is no longer just something for special occasions or something that women hide under their clothes. High-quality lingerie also ensures a feel-good factor in everyday life and sometimes even belongs to the right outfit, for example when the lace bra peeks out in the blazer combination. What lingerie trends will there be in 2023 and what you need to consider when buying the right underwear.

As already mentioned above, “Bondage with style” is one of the lingerie trends for 2023. Whether transparency, strips, thongs or tightly cut lingerie: sexy-looking underwear is particularly popular this year. For example in black and gold or with small rings: With this trend, the details make the difference. Of course, it is particularly attractive when the set consisting of panties or thongs and a bra or bralette goes together. Or you can grab a sexy body, which is also one of the trends.

But romantic playfulness is currently popular with many customers, reveals Kattwinkel. “Some of our models can be turned into a halter neck. If you then see the floral straps flashing, for example in the color ‘Electric Pink’, it can look great. Combined with a leather jacket, for example,” says the expert. “Our customers then wear it like a piece of jewellery.” In addition to floral embellishments, other playful patterns are also popular at the moment: a scalloped hem, sweeping lines or even floral lace.

Lingerie in eye-catching colors can also function as an eye-catching element: for example, a bralette in red that peeks out from under the otherwise rather simple blazer look. Other trendy colors are orange or velvet blue, says the expert. But you can also find shades of green again and again.

In addition to current trends, Nicole Kattwinkel also knows what is important when buying lingerie. “The support of a bra does not come from the strap, but always from the back.” In other words, the strap should not be tight, but should always fit two fingers underneath. Instead, it should be tighter under the breast, the bridge should fit snugly and the back and closure should be straight – otherwise there is a risk that the wearer will slip on the shoulder and, in the worst case, damage your posture.

If you don’t yet know your panty and especially bra size, you can’t just get advice from the lingerie shop around the corner. Some stores now also offer measuring using innovative 3D technology. Rigby, for example, offers a special 3D mirror
