Spice up the month of love

First of all, it’s the perfect excuse for us parents to play sweethearts again.  What’s more, it’s definitely the only time that I treat myself to lingerie. I bet that there are a few of you out there like me.

So you might as well be up on what’s hot…

Bodies. They were everywhere before the holidays, ready to wear under a little strappy dress. It’s a worthwhile purchase — it can come in handy on Valentine’s Day and you can also wear it under a buttoned jacket or to bring out the V neck in a big pullover.


Red. This classic reinvents itself every February. Sexy but stylish! Red is THE perfect colour for lingerie. Did you know that it doesn’t show under white? That makes red undergarments very versatile. You can wear them the same way you wear your beige bra/panties combo under light clothing.


Pink. The romantic colour par excellence. This year, it’s taken the place of nude. Powder pink, candy pink or blush pink — you can be sure that there’s a shade of pink that will bring out your skin colour. You just need to have patience and try some…


Strappy. Undergarments for rockers… Is this the Fifty Shades of Grey look? I wonder… One thing’s for sure: Save these flimsy things for those intimate moments, because they are very obvious, indeed, unsightly, under a figure-hugging dress… You’d be gunning for a fashion crime!


Garter belts. I’m trying them this year, and will keep you posted…



Flowers. Not men’s thing. In fact, mine would definitely prefer the garter belt…



Bralettes. Definition: A demi-camisole usually made from stretch lace and without underwire. A joy for small-breasted ladies because they’re super comfortable. As for me, I just wear them to sleep. Wearing one during the day wouldn’t make me feel attractive in the least…


Happy Valentine’s Day!
