Wardrobe essentials
every stylish girl must have

A girl can never have too much of anything, be it clothes, shoes or bags. It’s familiar when a woman stands in front of her closet and says “Oh my god, I have nothing to wear.” But there are some classic items that will make up the foundation of your wardrobe and can be just worn anytime. Check out these staples that are essential for every fashionista.

Sexy Lingerie: What’s on the inside reflects outside. Good fitting lingerie is essential as it affects your body shape, posture and confidence. Invest in some basics such as a T-shirt bra for your regular T-shirts/ tops, a lacy push up bra for those parties and night-outs and seamless panties to hide visible lines under your denims and dresses.

Plain white tee: A basic white tee is easy to wear and really versatile. You can wear it tucked under a pair of skinny jeans, a blazer or a skirt. They go really well with all printed pants too. Add on some accessories or even a scarf and you are ready!

Skinny Denims: A pair of skinny blue jeans are essential for every stylish girl and can just go about with anything and can be worn anywhere. Be sure to find the right size and fit.

Little Black Dress: A staple in every woman’s wardrobe, the little black dress was popularized by Coco Chanel in the 1920s. Since then the dress has remained timeless, chic and fun and can be worn on any occasion, casual or formal. Make sure to choose a silhouette that flatters your body. Pair it with the right accessory such as a string of pearls or strappy red sandals or even a fresh hairstyle and you are good to go.

Lounge wear: Every girl needs a pair of soft, fun and comfy lounge wear for the evening after a day of hard work. Choose a pair of lightweight pajamas and top and do experiment with different prints.

Oversized Sunglasses: When size matters, nothing is more glamorous than a pair of oversized sunglasses. They are great to protect your eyes from the harsh rays of the sun and add that extra oomph to your face. Choose a style and shape that suits your face.

A big handbag: A nice handbag is a great reflection of your personality. It is very fashionable and is great to fit in anything such as phone, wallet, keys, iPad, hair brush, lip balm and other daily essentials. A good quality neutral or black leather bag will match with any outfit.

Statement Jewelry: Jewelry is a girl’s best friend. Any jewellery such as a neckpiece, bold cuffs or delicate earrings add a feminine touch and are apt to go with any look.

Red ballet flats: They are casual, comfortable and can be worn with anything. But how about a pair of red flats instead of black? They are striking and can be worn with any dress, shorts or even a good pair of denims.

Strappy Heels: Black, silver or gold…a pair of strappy heels make your legs look taller, sexier and can be perfectly paired with any cocktail dress.

3 fun ways to show off your bra

Make a style statement!

Gone are the days when showing your bra was considered trashy. Revolutionize your lingerie drawer as now, there is a lot more that you can do with it. Showing off your bra is a new fashion statement. If your bra shows off your outfit, it becomes a really important part of your look. Here are some fun and sexy ways to rock those visible bras and bra straps. Go for it!

Add a colour contrast: Pull out those sheer chiffon and lace tops from your wardrobe and pair them with pop coloured bras. Try and stay away from basic coloured bras such as white and nude. Be experimental! Wearing bright coloured lingerie can really help liven your day. For an everyday casual look, you can also wear a basic tank with a contrast bra. If your bra is going to show, make it look deliberate.

colour contrast

Show off those trims: Your lacy and embroidered bras can be perfectly paired with loose boyfriend shirts and cut out tank tops. You can also add a delicate look and pair these lace bras with your cute V-neck or oversized tanks and let the lace peek out of the neckline. Sometimes, showing a bit of lace is sexier than showing the entire bra. Team it with a pair of jeans and high heels.

Button down: Wearing a nude or white coloured bra with a white shirt might not seem very exciting. Play with colours and prints and add a contrast with a bright coloured bra. For printed shirts, pair them with plain colours. Unbutton the top two or three buttons and show off your bra or bandeau with style. Team it with jeans, tights or shorts.

Do’s and Don’ts of showing off your bra outdoors:

  • Make sure that your bra fits well. This is really important if you want people looking at your bra. Moreover, the fitting will affect your posture and the way your clothes fit.
  • Don’t show off your everyday dirty torn bras. Avoid colours such as flesh coloured tones or nudes as they just look odd.
  • Do style it well. Try and match your bra to your top or outfit so that it looks well coordinated. If you are a beginner, start with a basic white/black bra or black lace bra before you go on to experiment with different colours.
  • Don’t wear a bra as a top. Unless, you are lazing at the beach, your bra is not a shirt or a top.
  • Sport the look with confidence. Don’t appear uncomfortable or fidget with it.
  • Wear a proper bra. Opt for full coverage bras for your sheer and lace tops. For strapless dresses and tanks, you can wear multi-way bras with embellished or fancy straps.

Push-Ups: Lie down on your stomach on the floor or a yoga mat. Now push your body upwards with your palms and toes touching the floor. Then come down and try to touch your chest as close to the floor as possible and then push up again. Do 20 reps.

Jump Squats: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower and push your hips backwards keeping your back straight as if you are sitting on a chair. Then jump as high as you can and when you land, lower your body in a squat position. Repeat and do 20 reps.

Plank: Get into a push up position on the floor. Now bend your elbows and rest your weight on your forearms. Your body should be in a straight line and the elbows should be beneath your shoulders. Hold on for about 30 seconds. Repeat thrice.

High Knees: Stand in one position and bring your knees high up to your chest as fast as you can. Switch legs and use your abs while doing this workout. Repeat and do 30 reps.

Burpees: Burpees are great as they don’t need any equipment and work your entire body. Start in a standing position with your feet a bit apart. Now, lower your body by squatting and placing your hands in front of you on the floor. Kick your legs back and come to a push up position. Then, raise your chest and kick your legs back to the original position. Stand up with your hands raised and jump to clap. Do about 15-20 reps.

To start with, do these exercises slowly. It is important to practice the right form and maintain a good posture. You can always increase the intensity of the workout by gradually increasing the number of repetitions. Make sure to wear comfortable and supportive activewear, especially a good fitting sport bra.

How to buy Bridal lingerie
Special day of your life

It is the most special day of your life, we want to help make it just perfect for you…

Imagine the morning of your big day, you’ve just put on your wedding dress, you take a look in the mirror and realise oh no!!

“I can see my bra straps!”

“Gosh these knickers are smaller than I thought!”

Here are some tips prettysecrets would like to share for all you would be brides.

  • Shop for your wedding lingerie with the same amount of scheduling and time that you did for your wedding dress.
  • Go shopping with a person who you share a great comfort level with, who knows your personality and understands your style.
  • Always remember your shopping partner plays an important role in choosing your bridal lingerie.
  • Try the lingerie on with your wedding dress. Just because it fits and looks good on your body does not mean it will fit or look good with your wedding dress.
  • Always go for comfort, satin and silk they are all time favourites for bridal lingerie as they are comfortable. Avoid going for any bra with annoying wires that might cut into your side on the wedding day.
  • Choose the right colour according to your wedding dress. Bridal lingerie is more than just red. Just like the shades of love, passion, lust, and devotion vary, so should the mood and color palette of your lingerie. The new hues that are ruling the roost, include shades of lavender, maroon, rose, purple, and plum.
  • If you have a big bust, avoid styles like push up, cross back, halter neck and strapless.
  • Buy an extra pair of what you plan to wear on your wedding day. Accidents happen ! You can leave the tags on and return them after the wedding if you don’t end up using them.

Bras under blouses

  • Low neckline – If you have decided on a sexy low neckline, you must opt for a strapless bra. Often, brides are unhappy with the kind of support provided by strapless bras. If you fall under this category, go for plunge bras. They provide adequate support and at the same time can be concealed easily.
  • Backless Blouses – Backless blouses are really popular among brides. After all they add an oomph factor to your overall look ! You can pair your backless blouse with an adhesive or stick on bra.
  • Heavy Blouses – Many brides complain about flat bust look when they wear blouses with a lot of stone and bead work. Opt for padded bras, if this problem sounds familiar to you. These bras provide you better shape and add definition to your chest area.
  • Figure Hugging Lehengas – Many brides wear normal underwear only to realise that their panty lines are visible. It is essential to buy good quality seamless underwear which will not show up.

Nightwear

This is your chance to show off your sexy bride side, be it on your first night or your honeymoon. Not sure of what to wear? That’s what we’re here for !

What fabric is more bridal than lace or satin ? It’s sexy yet innocent at the same time.

Honeymoon

A beautiful beach, clear azure sea and a sizzling sunshine. Welcome to your honeymoon! Your honeymoon is all about, luxury, pleasure and romance! So relax and enjoy in style.

Check our Swim & Beach collection

Bridal lingerie should be a reflection of your personal style. Considering that you’ll be on your feet and around cameras all day it’s absolutely essential that you choose lingerie you’re comfortable in.

Beach Holiday
keeps a doctor away!

Yes, it is true. We give you few health reasons to get yourself to the beach pronto.

  • SUN

Yeah, you heard us right. Exposure to the sun causes our brain to increase production of serotonin – which is the hormone that controls our feelings of happiness and wakefulness. Dont overdo it ! Too much exposure is not good.

  • SOUL

Just lie down and hear the rhythmic and gentle rumble of rolling sea waves, and a cool ocean breeze. Doesn’t it sound destressing?

  • SAND

Walking barefoot in the sand is great for stimulating the muscles in your feet as well as working your calf muscles. The sand also massages the soles of your feet, which improves circulation.

  • SLEEP

Yes, that worn-out feeling after visiting the beach is actually a good thing! The exercise can help you fall asleep faster, as well as remain in a deeper sleep for longer.

TIME TO SHOP FOR THE PERFECT SWIMWEAR

It’s often quite difficult to find the perfect swimwear because we usually face difficulties like where to shop? What to shop? What would flatter your figure and yet keep it stylish. But at prettysecrets.com you will always find a huge variety of swimwear that will take care of all your problems.

The Best Swimsuits for Your Body Type:

  • Small On Top

If you are small on top: Try frills, ruffles or fringes. Embellishments will pump up the volume and will create that optical illusion.

  • A Bit of a Belly

If you have a bit of a belly: Try one piece in Abstract prints. Abstract prints will distract from other unflattering curves.

  • Bigger Booty

If you have a Bigger Booty: Try bottoms with rings. Not only do rings look cute, but they keep your suit from riding up and exposing that extra junk.

  • Busty

If you are Busty: Try a V-neck with a mesh insert. This style shows just the right amount of cleavage and elongates your figure, minimizing the fullness of your breasts.

Tips

  • If you know you’re going to hit the beach the next day or have a pool party planned apply some self-tanner the night before. You will want to shower in the morning so that you are fresh, but the subtle, extra color will make you more confident.
  • Sarongs: They are versatile enough to use as a cover up for just your bottom or as a little dress for more coverage.
  • Ensure you are packed well in time as there’s nothing worse than showing up to the sand or by the pool realizing you forgot something you really needed.
  • Necessities for your beach bag: Suntan lotion, Lip Balm, Leave In Conditioner, Water Bottle, Cleansing Wipes, Hand Sanitizer, Sun glasses, Hat, Towel, Magazine or your favorite book.

How to Plan a Treasure Hunt for Your Lover

You don’t need a Valentine’s Day, happy anniversary day or your lover’s b’day to plan a sexy, romantic and a lust-filled night. If you’re looking for something to spice up your sex life, just plan a scavenger hunt already. We give you a step by step guide to creating your own love game.

Here’s how to plan a treasure hunt for your lover.

Buy the items

Make a list of items that your partner loves and add in a few that will totally take them by surprise.

For eg:

DRESS – UPS

BABYDOLL

FLOWERS / CHOCOLATES

SATIN ESSENTIALS

THONGS

BIKINIS

Sentimental items that means a lot to your partner

Make up the clues

You can do it the old-fashioned way by getting a scented baby pink paper and writing hand-written clues. Or you can try modern technology and do it via SMS or WhatsApp.

eg: Where did we first meet? Which is my all time favourite restaurant?

The love trail

With the help of the clues make a trail. You can include all the places that are significant to your relationship. Right from the place where you guys first kissed to the place where you had your first real date or even your favourite nightclub.

The finale

The last clue should lead to the biggest surprise of all. It’s the meeting point after a high-octane treasure hunt. The finale place could be a spa where you’ve booked a sensual couple massage session, or it could  be a  restaurant where you’ve organized a candlelight dinner, or it could be your own where you’ve made arrangements for a lust-filled night in bed.

Work Out Fashion Trends

Everyday is a good day to workout. People who workout tend to live healthier, happier lives. Stay fit, and also stay fashionable during those long training sessions. Its essential to use the right sportswear as it increases performance, which results in better gains and an improved workout. However, the wrong gear can have the opposite effect, and cause someone to underperform.

 
PS guide to buying
WORKOUT  wear:

FABRIC

Don’t forget, when choosing workout clothes that fabric matters! You do want clothes that fit you nicely and snugly, but nothing TOO tight or snug! You don’t want to hamper your movement or be uncomfortable. And make sure the fabric your workout clothes are made of is breathable. If you trap sweat against your skin, you increase chances of breakouts, sweaty smells and sweat stains on your clothes. The best fabrics to choose for workout clothes are cotton, spandex or elastic types. You will be much more comfortable in something that allows you to move around!

PICK THE RIGHT BOTTOMS

When choosing good workout clothes, keep in mind the type of exercise you will be doing. For running, jogging, cycling or any other type of exercise that involves a lot of leg usage, you’ll want shorts or capris that fit well and aren’t loose or baggy.

For yoga, stretches, weight lifting or other types of exercise that don’t involve cardio or rapid movement, a pair of gym pants or yoga pants with a slight flare at the bottom would be appropriate.

TOPS THAT GO WELL

The type of top you should choose to work out in, again depends on the workout regimen you have in mind for that day and the weather as well. We recommend that you should go with a sleeveless top. Sleeveless tops are more comfortable since they don’t trap sweat against your body and they are cooler in the hot months, if you absolutely want a sleeve, don’t go for anything heavy or super long. Keep the material light and the sleeve generally short to keep from hindering movement.

GO WITH DARK COLOURS

Dark colors always look the most sophisticated for workout clothes. Another advantage of dark colors is that they keep you looking thin and slender. And black especially is always sexy!

INVEST IN A GOOD SPORTS BRA

I must warn you though; a good quality sports bra is an expensive investment! But, is completely worth it.

Wearing a normal bra doesn’t compress your breasts and means that they are free to move around all over the place whilst you are exercising. This is no good because it means it does not protect the tissue in the breast from stretching. This can lead to back pains after exercise and in the long term … sagging!!
