It was Valentine’s Day when I realised, I have never been given lingerie by a man. And that’s fine by me! Lingerie is the ultimate gift to self. There is nothing better than selecting a gorgeous matching set of bra and briefs.
The feeling of wearing sensual underwear can’t be underestimated, it’s empowering for all the right reasons. Clothes look so much better when you have the right underwear on. You walk with a different confidence when everything remains in place and doesn’t gravitate as you move. And, even if my body isn’t perfect when I get undressed, I know that my lingerie is.
Finding the right lingerie isn’t always easy unless you have some go-to ranges that you know without a doubt are going to work for you. Playtex is one of my go-to brands. I know that their sizing is true, that the quality of the fabric is fantastic and will wash and wear well, and that I will feel confident wearing their bras and briefs.
Each season there is something that takes my eye. This season it’s the Invisible Elegance Full Cup Bra in Black Lace which is part of the Playtex Invisible Elegance range. I prefer bras to be seam-free and normally without too much lace in case it shows through clothes. No need to worry with Invisible Elegance, the lace is stitched so it always lies flat under any garment. The full cup gives the breast a natural roundness and the underwire gives just the right amount of lift us ladies over fifty need.
The briefs have full coverage as well, something that really does appeal to me. There isn’t anything worse than knickers that don’t stay put, I don’t need to go into details, you know what I mean. As I’m sure you already know, I have this slight obsession for matching underwear, I just never feel well dressed unless everything matches. That’s another reason I like Playtex, they always have bras and briefs that match and not at unrealistic prices. The Invisible Elegance Midi Brief is perfect under all your favourite clothes. The soft stretch front lies completely flat and doesn’t add any bulk to your tummy, especially good if you are wearing a tight fitting dress. The back has the matching Flower Elegance design that stops the briefs looking too practical and adds a sexy flattering shape to your bottom.
Playtex is affordable luxury. You can treat yourself to several beautiful lingerie sets without feeling like you are over indulging, and you definitely don’t have to wait until Valentine’s Day to receive them or wear them! As Rebecca Perkins said in her enlightening book – Best Knickers Always!
