Don’t clutch your pearls just yet—we’re talk­ing about good un­der­wear, the kind that you can ac­tu­ally show off yet still look classy in.

SPORTY SPICE A good bustier can take you places. In the case of Este­ban Cor­tazar, it takes you back to the ’90s. Paired with a plaid jump­suit tied around the waist, this laid-back look is any­thing but dated. TIP: Make sure to dou­ble-check your cup and waist size, as the bustier should be snug in all the right places. The cor­rect fit will tuck and flaunt what’s needed. Body­suit, P5650, MAIDENFORM NUDE AWAK­EN­ING A nude en­sem­ble like Den­nis Basso’s em­bel­lished dress is what we imag­ine fairies must wear. The sheer­ness of the fab­ric, mixed with tiny sparkling stones set against the skin, makes for a whim­si­cal sight. TIP: Make sure that your body suit is the same nude hue as your skin tone so as not to dis­tract the eye from the el­e­ments of the dress. THE SWITCH We love a good waist. Gi­ambat­tista Valli shows how curves are cre­ated even in a chunky, tex­tured out­fit by us­ing in­ner­wear as out­er­wear. Who­ever says corsets are meant to be worn un­der clothes clearly hasn’t read this. TIP: Corsets that fas­ten with hooks give a tighter, more se­cure clo­sure, and bon­ing holds you in place. Look for th­ese two el­e­ments when scout­ing for a waist-cincher. In­stant waist nip­per slim­mer, P3650,

BLACK AT IT Black is al­ways a good idea, says Chris­tian Dior’s femme fa­tale in her sheer black maxi dress, leather beret and fish­net stock­ings. Of course, this look skirts in­ap­pro­pri­ate­ness with the cor­rect un­der­gar­ments. TIP: To make this look more provoca­tive than raunchy, make sure your boy shorts are high­waisted enough to cover your belly but­ton. As for your ban­deau, cover any signs of cleav­age for a mod­est yet still fash­ion­able take on sheer.
