In 2021, it might feel tricky to make Valentines Day feel special. Depending on where you are, you may not be able to go out to dinner or go away for the weekend. A romantic walk may not feel so special when going for 5 mile hikes is all you’ve been doing for the past several weeks! This year, it’s all about an at-home Valentine’s Day. And that puts your underwear in the spotlight! If there’s one new thing you can bring to the valentines party, its that. So as we approach this Valentine’s Day, we tackle the big questions about your lingerie.
Is Valentine’s lingerie a cliche?
Maybe. That doesn’t make it any less fabulous though. Beautiful, well made lingerie isn’t just about how it makes you look, it’s about how it makes you feel. And this is the most important thing about Valentine’s Day! This day is a time to celebrate being with the person that you love. And so it’s important to be your authentic self. The key is in finding the best lingerie that brings out the confident and sexy you.
Must it be lacy?
Lingerie comes in so many different styles. Lace is beautiful, and it’s a favourite for a reason. But it’s not the only look out there! Let’s look at lace first. But how else do you achieve a statement style? Panelling is one. Embroidery is another.
Lace has undergone a revolution. No longer is it the itchy, restrictive finish of old. Modern lace finishing in lingerie, and more so shapewear, is elastic and contouring in structure. So you can embrace your femininity while still enhancing your silhouette!
Beautiful panel work in garments like a shaping cami provide a vertical line which is both comfortable and attractive. They’re tactile and sheer, so optimise your shape as well as being alluring!
Similarly, embroidered detailing is a great choice when you want to wear shapewear as lingerie. The delicate femininity will make you feel fabulous, while the structure and support of the garment will give you a smashing silhouette!
Must it be tiny?
Just because it’s Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to go barely there with your lingerie! There are no knicker police checking the percentage area of flesh you have exposed! In fact, some of the sexiest pieces are pretty all encompassing. Check out the amazing range of corset and corselette options out there. These give you a jaw dropping hourglass silhouette with comfortable control. By framing your best features, both you and your valentine will feel at your best.
Can it be comfortable?
The saddest lingerie myth out there is that women should be uncomfortable in order to be sexy. It’s terribly outdated. Of course you should be comfortable! Lingerie garments are there to showcase you, so to best achieve this, you must be comfortable with both the skin and the lingerie you’re in! A confident woman will always present her best self. So your choice of lingerie is all about how you will feel most confident.
The Best Choice
So, what are the best selections for Valentine’s day lingerie? The answer is as unique as you are. If you feel confident by enhancing your assets, then go for a push up corset. If you prefer yourself with a more subtle line, a cami may be your best bet. And for a sleek and feminine vibe, check out a shaping slip to sit under your evening dress.
Once you’ve worked out the underwear that makes you feel at your best, all that’s left is to plan that perfect valentine’s meal… Or maybe just order a takeaway!
