Friday Lingerie Lust: Valentine’s Day Part I

I feel there are different camps one can fall into with regards to Valentine’s Day. The first I call the “believers”, those who go all out with flowers, cards, chocolates and poems. The second are the woeful accepters, the Bridget Jones types who cry into the bottom of their empty wine glass and mourn the ghosts of lovers past.  Others are in denial: ‘Valentine’s Day? Oh I hadn’t noticed…..’  Which one are you?

Valentine’s Day, whether single or in a relationship, is the perfect excuse to show a little self love.  Treating oneself to a fabulous new set of lingerie or piece of loungewear on this day should be mandatory.  If you haven’t yet got the message from my lingerie columns that feeling good, outside and in, is intrinsically linked – the interplay between each affecting one another – please re-read my earlier columns.  Ladies in particular, I hope you use Valentine’s Day as the perfect time to invest in that special something that celebrates all your best womanly bits, no matter if others see or if you are the only person to know what lies underneath.

This week is part one of my two-part Valentine’s Day series.  I’ve chosen some of my favourite lingerie items guaranteed to make you feel fabulous – some are designed specially for this time of the year, others are part of current collections.  I hope you take a little inspiration from this series for yourself, a loved one, or even to treat a friend.

Image top: Myla:  Myla brought out a fabulous Valentine’s Day campaign this year featuring runway model Le Call wearing their devastating sexy red and black boudoir pieces.  I own a few sets from Myla and I think the label is incredibly well made.  Recent designs are playful and practical.  Definitely a label to find some inspiration from this time of year.

Image middle top: Huit: The heart shaped design of this ‘cupcake collection’ from Huit make it a perfect choice as a gift.  Available in a range of bold colours (red, purple) at a great price.

Image middle bottom: the Lascivious Simone set in raspberry.  A special Valentine’s Day design, there is some fantastic accentuation of curves in this collection. The brief with its side ‘fins’ is particularly flattering.

Image, bottom: a delightful piece from the Arabesque range from Between the Sheets.  I love this new luxe collection – and if you’re a fan like me make sure you head to the Between the Sheets sample sale at VMV Hypoallergenics in Union Square on Friday 3rd Feb, noon – 8pm, to pick up some Valentine’s bargains.  (I’m going – see you there!)

Tune in for part two next Friday…. Have a great weekend!

    I’m all for any holiday that involves chocolate – Valentine’s day included :) I generally tend to skip out on most of the festivities in favou of curling up with a box of treats and a good movie. But these offerings are all quite tempting, particularly the raspberry coloured Lascivious Simone set. The bright hue and side fins caught my eye immediately!

    I love the first two particularly, though I think the third would be really flattering on. Myla seems to be everywhere these days – can’t wait to try!
