Who Said Lingerie Was Just For Him?

When it comes to underwear, usually down to comfort and laziness, I’ll be found wearing a bra that I’ve had for a good couple of years – one of those that feels like a second skin rather than a pretty, lifting/enhancing/plunging number. On a day to day basis, I combine this with grabbing the most accessible pair of knickers which usually don’t match – and I’m good to go a Mismatched Missy. Shameful, I know.

If I got knocked over by a bus, I’d be pretty red faced.

It can be a little bit of a nightmare being a) plus size and b) having moderately sized mammary glands to find pretty underwear – the selection is usually limited to scary old lady looking bras rather than delicate and pretty.


In time for Valentines, the love Simply Beach wanted to send me something to put a smile on my face.

As well as swimwear, the site stocks some gorgeous lingerie, including ranges from Wonderbra, After Eve and Curvy Kate covering an array of styles – girly and flirty, bright and playful and sexy and seductive. Sticking with the Valentines theme, I went for the latter and picked this classic set from Gossard.

I personally think there’s nothing sexier than slipping into a matching set of underwear, even if you know that nobody is going to see it but you. It’s part of a “going out” (or staying in ;) x) routine that I love, picking a pretty set of lingerie just makes you feel completely put together….
…and it looks damn good on.

  • Thanks for this post! I find it really difficult to get bras that are pretty because I have such a small back with a large cup (28GG/30G). I’m off to check out the site now. Love the set you got! xxx

  • LUSH.
