As this born and bread Cairns baby battles her way through the chilly Winter days and nights, (what even is this single figure degree weather nonsense?!?!) there is one light at the end of the tunnel that keeps me going… SPRING is on it’s way! And what does spring mean to me? That the Racing season will soon be upon us! This is unquestionably my favourite time of the year. The coats come off, the flowers start to bloom and Spring Fashion bursts into stores. It’s a magical time of year.
To mark this welcome change of seasons, Australia will shortly kick into Spring racing mode. All across the country (Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Newcastle, to only name a few), Race days will dominate many of our social calendars. With the promise of good company, sunshine, fabulous fashion and world class equine competitors, whats not to love?!
Fashion is of course a huge part of the Spring Racing experience - yet as fun as it is to get dressed up, it can be quite the ordeal to find the perfect outfit. And once we’ve found that outfit, finding the perfect lingerie to wear UNDER it. There really is nothing worse than seeing a gorgeous look ruined by wrongly fitted/coloured/chosen undergarments. But never fear, Triumph have gone above and beyond to ensure that no matter the style of your frock this season, we have you comfortably and discreetly covered in all the right places!
FOR STRAPLESS DRESSES: Beautiful Silhouette
This beauty is a winner for all your strapless dress needs. Featuring a comfort wire & smooth moulded cups to create optimal support, it’s totally invisible under any fabric. Comfort is key for a Race Day - you have to commit to your outfit for the entire day (and night if you kick on!!) and strapless bras are notorious for digging in and being really uncomfortable. One not to be missed!!
FOR PLUNGE NECKLINES: Amourette Spotlight Wire Padded Bra
A favourite of mine!! We all love lingerie that looks great and makes us feel sexy, but I find this is not always a mutually elusive concept when finding the perfect undergarment. Cue the Amourette Spotlight!! With the plunging low front, wired padding and the finish of the smooth cup this bra ensures it won’t be seen under any material. Comes in a wide size range so is perfect for any bust type.
FOR SMALL BUSTS: Magic Boost Push Up Bra
I am unashamedly a member of the itty bitty club. And although I have made my peace with this, it is nice to feel a little more endowed underneath certain outfits to give more shape.
For this reason, I adore the Magic Boost Push Up bra. As the name suggests, it seriously creates some next level cleavage!! I love the cute little lace details between the cups. As a body type that doesn’t boast much shape, having a bra to boost my bust gives the illusion of curves <3
Once we have the top half sorted, it’s SO important to make sure we have an appropriate brief to complete the outfit. Something that feels supportive yet comfortable, and most importantly - Cannot. Be. Seen. I have a serious problem with visible panty lines these days - with such amazing products out there on the market, it’s a crime to ruin your outfit with the wrong underwear!!
FOR TUMMY CONTROL: Magic Boost Highwaist Pant
We all love a little extra support and shape under slim fit dresses, particularly when we are out for the long haul surrounded by amazing food and beverages! In these cases, you really can’t go past the Magic Boost Highwaist Pant. Super soft with a lace finish, this brief looks as good as it feels! Most importantly, it has a comfortable medium shaping level with a silicone strip at the waistband to make sure they stay firmly in place. No panty lines and comfortable Tummy control? I’ll have one in Nude Beige AND Black please!!
FOR ‘BARELY THERE UNDERWEAR: Amourette Spotlight Hipster String
If you’re someone who prefers to wear a G-string most of the time, then I have the one for you!! I find this particular pair are invisible under just about any fabric. They feature super cute laced edgings with a barely there, low Hipster cut. Sexy, yet incredibly comfortable!
I hope this how-to-dress guide has solved some of your racing dilemmas!! It’s really worth the time to ensure that you've got the perfect fit for your day in the sunshine - I don’t want anything to detract from what is absolutely sure to be a killer Spring Racing season.
To finish, here’s a selection of just some of the times Triumph has saved my Spring Racing dress debacles with supreme class and comfort.
