Valentine’s lingerie is so often overtly sexual. Retailers buy in the most daring and provocative lingerie – the type inspired by 50 shades; leather, strapping, harnesses, cut out panels.
We all know these items are favourites of mine. But there is a softer side to me. I’m definitely drawn to lace as much, if not more, than leather. And lately, I’ve been drawn to simplicity; classic styles. Soft. Romantic. Whimsical.
And romance for me is intimacy.
When it comes to lingerie, it is inky florals, sheer materials, and lace. It is softly structured items that gently caress your body; that lift and support without cinching or pinching or contouring.
Romantic lingerie is soft cups paired with floaty kimonos and easy breezy hair. It is natural, carefree, relaxed.
And, of course, Valentine’s lingerie needs to make you feel amazing. Whether you’re celebrating with the girls or having a steamy night in with the other half, you want to feel your at your very best, no matter what your mood. So I’ve included three little tricks I use to keep my confidence up when prancing about in lingerie.
But romance isn’t for everyone, so if you’re looking for something a little more daring I would suggest trying the Lovedrop subscription box that I reviewed last week. If you’re after something a little more enchanting for your Valentine’s lingerie, scroll on.
