Underwear is no longer just something for special occasions or something that women hide under their clothes. High-quality lingerie ensures a feel-good factor in everyday life and is sometimes even part of the right outfit, for example when the lace bra stands out in the blazer combination. Which lingerie trends will be available in 2024 and what you need to consider when buying suitable underwear.

As already mentioned above, “bondage with style” is one of the lingerie trends for 2024. Whether transparency, strips, thongs or tight-fitting lingerie: sexy-looking underwear is particularly popular this year. For example, in black and gold or with small rings: the details make the difference in this trend, otherwise it is kept minimalist. Of course, it is particularly attractive when the set of panties or thongs and bra or bralette fits together. Or you can choose a sexy body, which is also one of the trends.
But romantic playfulness is also popular with many customers at the moment, reveals Kattwinkel. "Some of our models can be turned into a halterneck. If you then see the flower straps peeking out, for example in the color 'Electric Pink', it can look great. For example combined with a leather jacket," says the expert. “Our customers then wear it like a piece of jewelry.” In addition to floral decorations, other playful patterns are also popular at the moment: a scalloped hem, sweeping lines or even floral lace. The “pinstripe” print in particular will be popular in 2024.
Lingerie in eye-catching colors can also act as an eye-catcher: for example, a bralette in red that stands out under the otherwise simple blazer look. According to the expert, other popular colors include a trendy kaki, deep dark blue, warm caramel tones, fuchsia and deep red as well as deep violet.
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." This means: The strap should not be tight, but should always fit two finger widths underneath. Instead, it should be tighter under the chest, the bridge should be snug and the back and closure should be straight and hug the body horizontally - otherwise there is a risk that the wearer will slip on the shoulder and, in the worst case, lead to poor posture. “The underwires must completely enclose the breasts, the bridge must lie nicely on the sternum and the cups must fit nicely on the top of the breast,” adds Kattwinkel.
If you don't yet know exactly your own panties and especially your bra size, you can get advice from the local experts in the lingerie shop around the corner. Some stores now also offer measuring using innovative technologies. Rigby, for example, offers a special 3D mirror
