I love lingerie… Just for me.
There is nothing more sexy and playful than to wear a sinfully romantic lacy balconette bras and undies that is feminine and sexy. Wearing it under your jeans or suit, that fine lace next to your skin will uplift your mood and no one will know why. Lingerie becomes a real weapon of seduction.
By being raise in France, from an early age we start wearing cute little sets. I mean teenager budget here. And yet you can still buy that sexy little bras panty set that is all for you. Colors. Lots of colors and lots of cute patterns. Your head spins to all of it.
My fist fitting was at this quaint little store around the corner from where I used to live, actually it is still there. The owner asked me if my bras was fitted correctly and as I was answering her, she proceeded into my dressing room and made some adjustments. Once you are fitted properly, then the fun begins.
So you can only imagine my surprise when I moved to the States and things were not the same. Actually, no sales person would ever dare touch you or come into your dressing room. A very puritan approach to the whole thing. Lingerie it is used to seduce a man not for one self. Thus, as you peruse our department stores the only styles, utilitarian, and colors, beige / nude and black, are displayed. If you want some lace you must visit different stores, and all of the sudden it goes from sexy to vulgar, of course in my opinion.
I love lingerie. Let me share some with you.
From affordable styles to couture you can truly build a wonderful intimates drawer. Here are some of my favorites.
As flattering as it is pretty, Chanterelle’s has underwired cups lifts and contour you. One of my favorite. They offer many cup sizes, up to an H and the bottoms reach 16/18. Simple to laciest there is something for everyone.
Function and form makes Simone Perele one of “best fitting bras in France”. Soft detail and soft lace make the quintessential Parisian style anywhere in the world.
Easy style and something for everyone: classic, sporty and even daring.
I must admit I have a weakness for Aubade as it was my first purchase and it continues to be most favorite brand. I love every piece of lingerie they have. No longer bound by the requirement to provide physical support, Aubade offers sensual and glamorous products.
Lace all in the right places. Whether it is extra trim, allover lace cup which is very comfortable, cotton band, or romantic accents, you will found something for you.
Le Petit Trou
Some of the most gorgeous lingerie sets from Le Petit Trou. Lots of bodysuits with lots of charm.
I hope you too will love lingerie and that some of those pieces will stimulate you to consider starting your own lingerie collection.
