The sexiest day on the calendar has been and gone, but need the fun stop there? Romance shouldn’t be confined to ‘special occasions’ or prepackaged, commercialised days. Perhaps, like me, you’re looking for a little extra inspiration to make the Post Valentine’s lull go off with ‘a bang’ again, so to speak!
And, if you’re anything like me – by that I mean you’re also a fussy underwear shopper – you might find looking for those extra special lingerie items a little frustrating. This year, due to various factors, I’ve been undertaking more of my personal shopping online. It’s not something I’ve done much of in the past, mainly because I really like to see and try on items before purchasing them. But with time constraints, the lack of decent clothing retailers in my area and the sheer variety of goods you can obtain from all over the world via the net, I thought it was about time I took the plunge.
I’ve been searching for something a little more luxurious than my normal bra and pants sets, and in my quest I’ve stumbled upon quite a few items I liked, from a wide range of retailers, all of whom trade and ship both nationally and internationally. Check out my suggestions below; perhaps some of them will appeal to you too, or at least provide you with a little extra inspiration on your next shopping trip.
It wouldn’t be a post about sexy undergarments without some vibrant red lingerie. How about this delicate, semi-sheer, lace cup Heidi Klum Intimates Collection Bra which oozes elegance and style. Or, for those looking for a more classic corset style item, take a look at the collections fiery red Committed Love Corset, detailed with sheer mesh lace and detachable suspenders; both of which are perfectly designed for a bit of sexy-time fun.
Give the Perfect Present
For something a little more playful, how about this quirky Ariana Chiffon Bra and Brief Set. It combines style with a raunchy design, and will no doubt have you making an unforgettable statement wearing it. If you like this ‘unwrappable gift’ concept, then you may also enjoy the collections flirtatious All Wrapped Up Body Bow, which will certainly get your partner more excited than any Christmas day morning!
Fuller Figures Needn’t Miss Out
For those blessed with a fuller figure, it can be even more frustrating trying to find items that combine the necessary support with a touch of glamour. This versatile, fuchsia Fauve Aurelia Padded Half Cup Bra, available in sizes DD-GG, combines both delicate net fabric and a cute, multi-coloured, romantic floral embroidered design. Or, for a more classic, sultry style, this Super Boost Black Lace Balcony Bra by Gossard has a feminine lace design and a flattering centre-front shape to enhance your cleavage and give you that extra oomph!
Naughty but Nice
This Nasty Gal Intimates Bustier Bra seamlessly fuses those bang on-trend gorgeous nude tones with an intricate black-lace embellishment to make an exquisitely sultry statement. It is simple yet elegant, and can be teamed with this Lace Is More Thong to complete the look.
Ann Summers always offer an array of lingerie for a variety of occasions. How about this burlesque inspired Georgette Babydoll, which is currently in the sale and still available in all sizes. The maroon satin, long-line bra comes detailed with straps, lace placement, sequins and detachable suspenders. It’s adaptable and can be combined with this Georgette Tie Side Thong.
And finally, for those with slightly more expensive tastes, I absolutely adore this oyster Luna Short Slip by Agent Provocateur. It’s clingy silk fabric and French trim lace detail, make it a perfect luxury item to add to your lingerie collection. It’s available in a range of colours and can be accessorised with these fabulous Elice Boudoir Mules.
So there you have it, my ideas for some post Valentine’s Day online lingerie shopping inspiration. All garments come in a range of sizes and many of these may be available in a high street store near you. But don’t worry if they’re not, all of the featured sites offer a variety of delivery options, provide you with currency converters and size guides, all of which help to make the online shopping experience that little bit easier.
What do you think of the lingerie mentioned?
As always, I’d love to hear from you.
