Chantelle Lingerie Mini-Lookbook | Festive Party Dress Solutions

Chantelle Lingerie Champs Elysees Sapphire December has arrived and along with it, comes more food, festive songs, fairy lights and general cheeriness than we can ask for!  Also included in the list of many things that make this time of year so special, is the events.  The parties, get-togethers and other reasons to pick up the most embellished special occasion dresses you can find.  This is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times to be shopping - both as gifts for others, and for your own wardrobe!  So, with festive party dresses on the mind, how can we ensure we do that 'ridiculously perfect, drop dead gorgeous' dress justice?  Besides a killer red lip, stilettos on your feet and an hour spent styling hair... lingerie!  I've teamed up with French lingerie company, Chantelle Lingerie (a longstanding go-to and fave of mine when it comes to luxurious underwear!) to showcase three gorgeous designs that will work perfectly underneath festive party looks for a flawless fit this Christmas.  Because hey, it's what's underneath that counts...

Be still my beating heart.  We'll start with the most intricate of the three designs by Chantelle, the Champs Elysees Balconette Bra.  Right now, blue is my favourite colour and so this balconette bra absolutely steals first place.  Having said that, the ivory version is equally as beautiful.  The red embroidery and attention to detail over the entire bra make it a total treat to wear and the briefs to match are equally as lovely (yes to the v-shaped front).  Oh and sure, I'll admit the name alone makes me want to hop on a plane to Paris!

If you also find balconette bras to be hugely comfortable, this is one to add to your lingerie drawer  for those long nights this Christmas.  The half cup design would work beautifully underneath a low-cut dress, or equally a more demure dress that you're wanting to feel a bit more 'sparkly' underneath.  So if you're not sure about the dress code and want to play it safe, you can.  Just not underneath.  Alternatively, the intricate lace design wouldn't mess with an overly embellished, busy festive party look.  Party on the outside and underneath!  If it's confidence you want, it's confidence you'll get...

An essential in any wardrobe, Chantelle Lingerie's Festivité Bra!  The sheer lace layered over the soft cups is such a beautiful and unexpected combination; it reminds me a little of the Passionata Brooklyn Bra (another favourite plunge of mine), thanks to the super comfortable fit and underwired and flattering silhouette.  Surprise surprise, Festivité has become one of my go-to pieces of lingerie, along with the matching sexy tanga briefs.

Plunging necklines have been way off my winter styling lately.  However, we're now knee-deep in the season where we forget how to dress for the weather, and opt instead for embellished mini dresses with spaghetti straps and plunging necklines, because... Christmas! Festivité is one of those super dreamy plunge bras that work just as well underneath plunging party dress necklines, as they do cosy, casual jumpers on any given day of the week.

I've lost count of how many times I've worn a gorgeous dress, only to find afterwards (via photos, ugh) that a visible bra line could be seen through the material.  It kills the look, for sure.  Simple solution?  Chantelle Lingerie's Irresistible T-shirt Bra and matching briefs. The design is lined with an ultra-soft knit, and this black version has a beautifully thin and delicate blush satin piping running around the contours.  Love.  And don't even get me started on the push-up effect.  For all my smaller-chest girls reading this  (high five), believe me when I say this works miracles.  Probably the only time you'll see me with a cleavage...

I mean, where do I even start?  It's perfect!  Because of this, it's ideal for teaming underneath figure-hugging dresses as well as those that could look that little bit more special with a boost up front.  Oh, and if you're not keen on strapless bras, Irresistible's super slim straps lend themselves to party dresses with skimpier straps to their designs.

  5. They are such pretty pieces! :) I had to donate a bunch of old bras (There's a charity here called uplift movement that collects them and gives to people who don't have access to them) after breastfeeding finished as things aren't quite the same, haha! So new undies are definitely on my need to buy list! :)

    Hope you had a great weekend! We did a lot of Christmassy things like putting our tree up which was good. They predicted wild weather but thankfully it stayed away all weekend.

  10. The first bra has the most beautiful details but I love the second one! I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of it.

  11. The first one is so beautiful and romantic, I love the close picture that shows the lace detail, so pretty. I love t-shirt bras that are comfortable and after a few 'accidents' I had in the past, bra showing under a formal dress etc these are the best for me.


  12. I like the festivite. It is so beautiful with the lace and red details

  13. Ohhh I love the first one. It just looks the most romantic and sexy to me.
    The photos are all so feminine and done with a lovely touch. Great work!

  14. Oh my gosh Gabrielle, these are so pretty. I think like you I like the first one the most, that navy blue shade is so pretty, and one I always go for as well, but the pattern is so lovely too. There's something to be said for really nice lingerie, even if no one else sees it but you, it just somehow makes me feel a lot better and comfortable, so I definitely need to invest in a nice new set for the year ahead. Lovely photos as always too! - Tasha

  15. All of the bras are so so pretty! Love the second one, gorgeous with the details of lace. Shopping for lingerie for the holidays is the best combo, makes everything feel more festive. Have a lovely week Gabrielle! Xx

  16. Gorgeous imagery as always Gabrielle! Chantelle is a beautiful brand and all these bras are lovely. I think the second is my favourite.
