But what are you going to wear under that dress?

Perhaps the Red Delicious Silk Bra, by Elegantly Scant (above left) – a gently padded 100% silk bra with a playful red silk ruffle trim? Now £25.

Or this beautiful set from Miss La La (above right) – made from soft, pale pink silk with a stylish red and white bow print, with red ruffle trims and oversized bows? La Magia are currently offering this set at half price! (Bra now £45, Tap Pant now £30, Matching chemise now £75)

The Lulu range from What Katie Did is still incredibly popular – we love it in luscious Valentine red!

The Lulu Corselette (above left) is made from double layer powermesh for some serious control beneath your clothes, and is panelled with red satin and black lace overlay. Smooth enough to be worn beneath the slinkiest of outfits (and low-back dresses too thanks to a fabulously low back). £65

Above Right: Underwired Bra £39.50, Deep Knickers £25, Suspender Belt £30 (Also available at La Magia)

Last but not least – why not be pretty in pink?

This corset comes down low over the hips, giving more control and coverage. Made from strawberry pink silk and adorned with contrasting red lace applique. Steel boned and with lacing to the back, this corset is handmade in London. With extra curvature around the hips and ribs it creates a perfect hourglass shape, remaining comfortable while defining and enhancing any woman’s natural shape. [Image ©La Magia]
