Hi there lovebirds, it’s finally time to be cheesy when Valentine’s Day arrives and fills us all with whole lotta love. I know there are some last-minute-shoppers out there so here is something you might get your hands on quite easily, especially if you’re living in UK or anywhere else with a decent lingerie shop. If not, promise to buy your loved-one something really special next time you hit a lingerie boutique and remember to buy at least some flowers! (And not those boring red roses, use your imagination.) And for you, sirens, it’s the last call to buy something a bit more sexy, daring or cute to impress your homeboy. And don’t you go calling me sexist, I’m a feminist but I believe in feeling amazing about yourself and for me that means sexy lingerie.
1. Curvy Kate Romance
The name tells it all! You don’t have to wear hot pink to be appropriately (un)dressed. This is a classy yet sexy set with a lot of different colourways to go for. My pick would probably be the black/purple or the black/red one. With a pair of stockings this will look great! (Psst, I’ll be reviewing this bra soon so stay tuned, gals!)
2. Freya Arabella
Now here’s the pink you’ve all been eagerly waiting for! Just kidding, I’m sure most of you’re not such Barbie girls as me. I have had this one in a black/pink colourway and I’d definitely say it’s affective. I think all the Arabella shades are amazing so give it try! There’s also a cute matching suspender belt to make the set extra sexy.
3. Bravissimo Darling Heart
Ahh, can’t wait to try this one on! I haven’t tried any of Bravissimo’s own bras yet so it’s time to lose my virginity on that matter (Any tips on sizing, anyone?). This colourway is superduper cute and I might say suprising as well. I have never been a big fan of purple but here it just works. Plus I have never seen such a unique styling, this is a great example of a pattern that could have gone horribly wrong with the all the cute colours and hearts in a same bra. Bravo Bravissimo!
4. Gossard Ooh la la Corselette
Please someone help me, I can’t breath! So now everyone knows where my next paycheck’s gonna go? This amazing corselette is available also in black/blush but I think this one just takes your breath away. I’m so gonna keep my fingers and toes crossed that this one looks great in my size too cause I’ve had bad experiences of DD+ corselettes and basques. They just don’t look the same as in the pictures. (Did you note the models lipstick hue? Just perfect!)
5. Cleo Marcie
Last but not the least, it’s my favourite girl Marcie! For a girl with upper fullness this is probably the best shape you can get. I know it’s not a “OMG, your cleavage is huge!” -bra but the style of Marcie speaks for itself. Plus the ruffle knickers are supercute. AND did I mention the new turquoise shade coming in stores this spring?! And the pink one in autumn?!! Nevertheless, just get your hands on this bra asap whether you’re going to wear it on Valentine’s or not.
+ Something to wrap your gift in:
This can be something really cheap just to cover yourself up in a sexy way. I once bought a H&M robe for five euros and it has served me well. This is something that can make you feel luxurious without breaking the bank. Just buy an expensive-looking robe and a pair of stockings to match your old lingerie and tadah, you have brought your old set to another level.
Have a great Valentine’s Day sweethearts and see you soon when my Figleaves order reaches our flat!
