How To Dress For Body Confidence: The InStyle Guide

Dress from your underwear out for the ultimate in Bravissimo body confidence. InStyle's Shopping Editor, Robyn Kotze shares her top tips...

As InStyle's resident shopping editor, fashion stylist and lingerie enthusiast, Robyn Kotze understands the power of good underwear. What you're wearing underneath your clothes can not only transform the way you look, but also affect the way you feel.

'Wearing a matching set of lingerie always makes me feel glamorous,' says Robyn. 'Wear under a navy or black vest for a pop of colour'.

From fit and form to comfort and shape, having the right lingerie is key to walking tall and feeling good. Dress from your underwear out with Robyn's top tips for body confidence…

1. Look for a seam-free T-shirt bra so that it doesn't show through the fabric.
2. A well fitting bra that lifts and supports you can make you feel like you've dropped a dress size.
3. Choose a bra that fits well, but also make sure its one you really love, as it will give your confidence a boost
4. A well-fitting bra will lift your boobs for a great shape under your top
