With Valentine’s Day around the corner, perhaps you have suddenly realised you forgot to make plans or buy a gift for your significant other. (Or perhaps you are well organised and have no idea what I’m talking about, in which case, just skip this and check out the cute lingerie below). Making plans is hard, let’s be honest; Feb 14th is a Wednesday, you’ve probably got a load of washing to do, school lunches to make or that second job to get to. So, if you’re looking for a little pick me up, something to both spoil yourself and make him feel like you haven’t forgotten him on Valentine’s day for the 5th year in a row, what is better than a sweet new set of lingerie!!
Lingerie + plus size. It’s a scary thought for many, but my question is why? Why shouldn’t you flaunt your curves? If you are putting lingerie on for someone, that is someone that already loves you and adores you and I bet would love to see your new outfit. There is nothing better than finding some super cute lingerie and watching your man drool a little (no, just me?). When it comes to lingerie (just like swimwear), it’s important that YOU feel comfortable, even sexy; so picking the right set is the hardest part! With that in mind, I find the easiest way to decide on your V-day style is to pick a part of your body that makes you feel un-sexy (this might sound counter productive but we’ve all got something), and then work with that to cover it up or wear something that makes you feel better about it. If you hate your waist, perhaps a soft baby doll style that skims over the top of it is best. If you wish your boobs were bigger, find something with extra padding for that extra oomph! Whether you prefer full coverage, lacy, high waisted or anything in between there is definitely something out there to make you feel fabulous (and that’s the most important bit!) To help out, I’ve picked out some of my favourite Valentines Day themed sets, outfits and lingerie to help you treat yo’self and feel good!
Passions Corset and Stockings – ($99.95) Curvaceously Yours. I love this corset set with the nude lining as it implys lots of nude for him, with extra comfort for you. The bodice of the corset runs bust to pelvis giving a beautiful shape (adjustable with a lace up back), and with underwire support built in it’s great for a bigger bust.
Elomi Flirt Set – (Bra $94.95, Brief $49.95) Big Girls Don’t Cry. For the perfect combinations of ‘Will you be my Valentine’ and ‘I am so comfortable I could nap’, I can’t go past this set. The matching harness detail on the bra and brief paired with the full cup plunge style and high waist is ideal if you’re self conscious about your stomach while still being super fun!
Anika Plunge Set – (Bra $69.95, currently on promotion with a free brief) City Chic. If you are after something a little more romantic this Anika Set has beautiful detailing and gorgeous lace lines (also comes in black if you’re more a 50 Shades of Grey type gal). This soft cup bra features a lace up front for a little extra cleavage and I love the extra strapping on the thong (there’s also a matching brief if you prefer).
Wonderous Baby Doll – ($54.00) Unlucky Lingerie. The baby doll is one of my all time favourite styles! Flattering on nearly all body shapes it’s fitted in the bust and then just glides over everything else. This one has that little bit of extra X factor with the lace cups and sheers dress and comes in Valentine red, sultry black and all year round, no need for a special occasion blue!
That’s it! I hope you have the best Valentine’s day (or any other day for that matter) and cupid is kind to you. xx
