Santa Baby, slip a little something under the tree for me … but you’d better make sure it’s lingerie! After all, a little Christmas lingerie parcel can go a very long way.
Well December is here and with it comes fairy lights, Christmas parties, and (of course) a little something under the tree! Now I will be honest, my husband and I don’t do Christmas presents for each other. We share money and tend to have everything we really want/need. That said, I do like to treat myself around Christmas time with a little lingerie gift.
There is just something about some new Christmas lingerie that makes me feel better about the season. Regular readers will know that I’m all about the foundations – I strongly believe that what lies beneath makes an outfit. And when down? I’m mostly likely to lift my spirits by dressing in my fancy new lingerie, reading a good book, and indulging in my favourite tipple. So whether you’re shopping for yourself or a loved one to feel that little bit special this Christmas, take a look at my indulgent picks from the fuller bust lingerie market.
Nothing says Christmas like sparkles. The streets are decked with fairy lights and your lounge is probably draped in tinsel. Christmas party dresses are dripping in sequins and sales of body shimmer are through the roof. So why not bring the sparkle to your lingerie too?
Shop Sparkly Lingerie
This Ivory Rose Black and Gold Glitter High Apex bra definitely ticks the sparkles box. It twinkles under the fairy lights whilst maintaining a classic style that makes the set versatile enough to wear under a plethora of Christmas outfits. The high waisted briefs are perfect for wearing beneath more fitted items to reduce VPL and the deep plunge of the bra means it works well beneath plunging necklines. You can see this set worn beneath my the maxi body con dress in my recent Christmas Party Wear Look Book.
Naughty or Nice?
We all know I adore a body – especially now that I’m pregnant as I feel they support that ever-growing baby bump that bit more than traditional briefs. They also make for great Christmas lingerie – especially when they can also be worn as outerwear.
Shop Lingerie as Outerwear
Imagine this beautiful Tutti Rouge Eva Body in Garnet paired with a leather-look trousers and a sharp blazer. It would certainly be Christmas party ready. Or, with a full skirt for a more formal look – you’d be a the sexiest belle of the ball. Or, of course, you could just lounge about the house in it, drinking a Chai latte and listening to Buble … my Christmas dream!
Lingerie is for life, not just for Christmas. So choosing a beautiful set with just a nod to the festive season is a great option. Think red lace, embroidery or appliqués on classic lingerie shapes – a balconette, a plunge, or a bralette.
Shop Festive Bras
This Sculptresse Logan bra has a real holiday feel with the red floral appliqué and mesh details. The classic full cup shape offers subtle uplift and a rounded shape to the breast tissue that can be worn all year round and would look great beneath turtle necked Christmas party dresses. It also looks pretty great worn with a snuggly, hand knitted cardigan.
Golden Screen Starlet
Christmas is a time for indulgence. It is a time to delight in all those tasty treats and morsels of heaven. Christmas lingerie is no different. With long nights in sipping mulled wine and watching corny Christmas movies or a lazy Christmas morning eating smoked salmon and sipping prosecco whilst opening presents – luxurious loungewear will make your holiday season that little bit more magical.
Shop Indulgent Loungewear
The Playful Promise velvet pyjamas, worn over a Felicity Hayward x Playful Promises body, are the ultimate in luxury. They make me feel like a golden screen starlet – especially when worn with a splash of red lipstick. They PJs are comfortable, with an elasticated waist to allow for the post-chocolate binge bloating. They are also warm, encasing you in the cosiest velvet hug you could imagine.
So, with so many beautiful items to unwrap beneath the Christmas tree this year, which would you choose?
