Forward-looking yet timeless, this Charlotte bra and briefs set by Fantasie has a subtle ivory base beautifully complemented by an elegant leafy floral print. Your lady will look and feel lovely in it on Valentine’s Day.
Charlie Austin, Head of Fantasie Design, told us: “For SS18 some of Fantasie’s collections were inspired by modern purity – a graphic and geometric trend featuring clean, structured and refined silhouettes. Soft muted colours and pastel shades have been blended with brighter accents of colour. We wanted the pieces to look completely effortless.” The Charlotte Side Support Bra (30D- 38J) is £35 and the High Waist Brief (XS-XXL) is £27. Fantasie is available in hundreds of stores nationwide.
