I'd say a gradient map, with the lightest color set for something darker than white.

Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

Do you have preference on what mode for gradient to set? Thank you

Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

Isn't there a way to do it with selective color layer masked, selecting the whites and then move the sliders? Just a thought...

Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

This is not complicated, just try to play more with the layers blendings.
This bid was done in Freelancer.com and I did/sent the sample but the guy choosed a cheaper one. That's why I do not like to work in the freelancers sites, 90% of the projects owners are just ignorants looking for the low price and no quality; 80% of the freelancers are ready to do the jobs almost for free and do not respect themselves (and the others). The site is great, very good administration, nothing to complain about them.
Here is the solution:
http://www.mediafire.com/i/?593gdwck8dtp3ru
You must use not 1 but 3 blended layers: down in Hard Light, 100% opacity, middle Pin Light 100% opacity, up Multiply at 64% opacity.
I dicovered this making test/error with the layers, that's all.
Enjoy!

Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

Excuse the sloppy masking, I'm pecking with one finger on my trackpad.

I just sampled the purple with the paintbrush, painted it on a layer and set the blend mode to Color, and put a curve under it to control depth and detail.

Lab would be my choice as well.

Nebulaoperator, simply match the swatch values in curves. The highlights can be controlled with a fill layer on colour blend and adjusting the opacity.
