Whilst at the gym on Sunday I caught a bit of the X Factor repeat (anything to distract myself!). Normally I stop watching X Factor once the hugely entertaining/ hand-chewingly cringe-worthy auditions are over but one glimpse of Ruth Lorenzo giving it her all in a stunning Grecian goddess-type dress nearly knocked me off my treadmill! It’s no wonder Simon Cowell took something of a shine to her. He wasn’t wrong when he described her as ‘all woman’ - what amazing curves! It warmed my heart to see her oozing powerful femininity and confidence belting out her track. She looked so happy in herself.
I don’t know what underwear Ruth was wearing but it certainly did the trick. Gok Wan would definitely approve of those boosted bangers!
If you’d like to achieve her beautifully bosomy look try the Gok Wan Boobylicious Basque. Because it’s a plunge basque it’s perfect for those dramatically deep necklines, like Ruth’s gorgeous dress. If you’re wearing a white dress or top then go for the Gok Wan bra in ‘Naked’ (natural colour). It will be virtually invisible beneath your clothes.
Skintone knickers are also a must if you’re wearing a white dress – try the Gok Wan Super Slicker Knickers shaping shorts.
Ruth Lorenzo wasn’t the only one showcasing some gorgeous curves in the X Factor live show this weekend. The extremely talented Laura White showed off her stunning hourglass figure in a sexy black figure-hugging dress. It looked so smooth and seamless she must have had some great shapewear underneath.
If you want to recreate Laura’s look, try one of our gorgeous Gok Wan shaping slips.
Or if you’d prefer something with a little more retro 50’s styling, you’ll love the Gok Wan Sassy Slip bodyshaper. It’s what used to be called a corselet and is really making something of a comeback, what with all these burlesque beauties performing up and down the country!
And what’s more, because Gok Wan has chosen the finest and most comfortable fabrics for his shapewear, it won’t restrict you or feel like it’s cutting off your circulation like other shapewear lingerie can. Meaning the Gok Wan lingerie would be an ideal choice for any aspiring diva. You can sing your heart out in it and still look well supported and sexy!
I came across this article the other day in which I was delighted to discover that Gok Wan tried on some of his own ladies lingerie range! He roadtested the underwear for a month because he wanted to know how it felt.
Bless Gok! Not wanting to receive criticisms of a ‘you’re a gay man how can you know what you’re doing designing underwear for women’ nature he gave the lingerie a thorough testing himself! I have to say, he kept that one pretty quiet from the lingerie team at Simply Yours.
He (alas) did not go for the Banger Booster bra (it seems his bangers don’t need any boosting) but he did try on the shaping shorts (Slicker Knickers, Super Slicker Knickers, Pull Me in Pants) and, wait for it… the sex kitten corset! Although Gok admits “I looked f****** hideous.”
How I wish I had a photo of Gok Wan in the corset to post up for you! I’m afraid though you’ll just have to use your imaginations…
To celebrate Gok Wan coming into our office last week, my colleague Melissa the cupcake queen made Gok some cute little cakes beautifully decorated with bras and knickers!
Gok was very pleased with the lingerie cakes, as you can see from these pics!
The gorgeous Gok Wan lingerie cakes.
I love the little bra and knickers!
That Gok signature is so good Gok Wan could have done it himself!
Gok Wan, the cakes, and a very big grin indeed.
