I love Valentine’s Day; I’m a sucker for all things pink, red and romantic. I remember I always used to dream about the perfect Valentine’s Day when I could be whisked off to wonderful romantic date by Prince Charming and then we’d live happily ever after. Unfortunately my childhood dreams were crushed by the fact that that day never came, not in 21 years. Funny enough, today when I have finally found my Prince Charming I don’t feel upset when I can’t spend Valentine’s Day with him on that exact day. Why, you ask. The answer is simple and pretty cheesy; I don’t need February 14th to show someone how much I love him. He knows it already, which is why we can happily go out a few days before and have our own private Valentine’s Day.
But let’s leave my personal love life goo out of this for a second and focus on the one important thing that always makes me flutter whether it’s Valentine’s Day or not – lingerie. V-day is an excellent excuse to treat yourself as well and show some self-love; buy yourself something you feel sexy/ comfortable in and it will make your day with or without a special someone. Here are some picks to make you feel and look fantastic!
Curvy Kate “Carmen”
Of course I needed to include it. After all it’s the one set I’ve been drooling over since the pics were released. And guess what? This is my personal pick for the V-day adventures since I ALREADY HAVE IT WITH ME. Yes, I bought it, it arrived today and turned out to be perfect. Boyfriend is diggin the set too so it’s a win-win situation. (Review coming next week!) You can buy yours at Brastop or Figleaves for £35 for the bra, £15 for the thong and £18 for the suspender belt. Size range 28D-38J.
I usually don’t go for the white options but this set is just so gorgeous it has to be mentioned. I also love how it’s photographed and shown on different body types which makes this brand and the product even more attractive to consumers.

Mimi Holliday “Raspberry Ripple”
Loving the new Mimi styles! Raspberry Ripple is a perfect V-day choice for someone who appreciates a bit of luxe but still quite clean looks. This set is not overly frilly or complicated but it makes a statement with it’s amazing colour and shiny materials. This style also includes a Maxi bra which is designed for sizes 28-40 D-GG.
Playful Promises “Ruby”
This one I picked for a bit of fun – it’s not very practical nor supportive but makes hell of an impact when worn with a right attitude and whole lotta confidence. I would personally love to see how this kinda thing works for my 30GG bust and would definitely be up for trying it for the heck of it. Also the girdle is amazing and could easily be combined with a full-bust bra if needed. Both of these are sold at Hepburn & Leigh in sizes XS-XL.
Avocado is aesthetically one of my favourite Polish brands; it offers both very romantic detailed designs but also sleek and sophisticated ones, just like Nina. I love the bold red colour here, it’s perfect for the set’s simplicity and would work fantastically for V-day celebrations. You can find Nina on Avocado’s online shop in sizes 60-95 E-K (EU sizing).
Here are my picks for Valentine’s but if anyone of you have other faves or styles appropriate for the most romantic day of the year, let me know in the comments! I would also love to know what your plans are for V-day if you dare to share 😉
