It’s a little less than a month away until Valentines day, which only means one thing for those paired off girls out there … it’s time to find those amazingly sexy lingerie pieces to make your man weak at the knees (because we really need an excuse to drape ourselves in lace and silk!).
|The Nell Dress Slip by Betty Blues Loungerie|
Bored of the old cliche of red being the only appropriate colour to wear for the big V, I have decided to steer away from my usual scarlet this year and go rather darker – I’m thinking vintage style leather and lace with accents of the BDSM scene.
The devastatingly sensual Nell Dress slip is exactly what I have in mind … the moment I saw it I more than swooned (I may even have squealed with delight). However, with a price tag of £150 (and my husbands insistence that we start saving for a house) I simply can’t justify the spend.
Instead, I’ve sought elsewhere …

|Illicite Basque by Figleaves Boudoir|
If you prefer more support in your lingerie, then the Illicite Basque by Figleaves Boudoir may be just for you! The peeping mesh inserts have a real burlesque performance feel that makes me just want to shimmy about my bedroom in impossibly high heels whilst Louis Armstrong serenades me from the corner.
I cannot promise to the sizing of this, I have often found Figleave’s own range smaller than advertised, and the back only goes to a measly 36 which rules most of us out. It does, however, go to a generous G cup which is unusual for their Erotique range.
I promise to let you know more on the sizing if I can convince my darling husband to buy me this. The basque is priced at £65 with the briefs costing an extra £26.

The sheer lace effect of the embroidered basque by Debenhams is a much more affordable and wearable alternative – and its still as luscious as affordable underwear can be!
