Work Underwear As Outerwear

The underwear as outerwear trend comes and goes every few seasons. This sexy fashion trend comes in different forms with every reinvention. Sometimes it’s a lace bra on show, a slip dress, or a corset top. But most times the underwear as outerwear trend manifests in the form of statement hosiery or suspenders that are made to be seen. This can be a difficult trend to wear if you suffer from inner thigh chafing. Hosiery or thigh-highs can often irate existing rashes, and garters are known to slip down or cut into thighs. Our thigh bands are the perfect solution, they make a sexy statement when glimpsed under a thigh-high split dress or skirt. If you’re trying a semi-sheer or lace dress but want a little extra modesty, then thigh bands make a sexy solution. Bandelettes are far chicer than traditional shapewear. So skip the Bridget Jones style ‘granny panties’ and cover up your thighs with a lacy leg band instead. Thigh bands make a great statement when worn under an oversized tee-shirt dress with thigh-high boots, a popular celebrity trend seen on the likes of Hailey Baldwin. You can also try them with swimwear and bodywear, as seen at New York Fashion Week where Bandelettes collaborated with Chromat.
