Just a couple of days away, one of my favourite days of the year! Time to celebrate the love! V-Day. Like I said in my last blog, valentines is more about just the cards, the flowers and chocolates. And I’ve talked about sharing the love, with your partner, with your girls, with family! But one thing I haven’t mentioned is self love.
This valentines I’m celebrating me. One of the biggest parts of my journey to self love, was falling in love with underwear. Falling in love with the way it made me feel, the empowerment of treating my body. Self love is the hardest, but one of the strongest loves. It’s a long road that has its ups and downs like any relationship but on the good days it’s so good.
So when the lovely babes from Brastop gifted me some sets for this blog I couldn’t wait to share! Share the way they made me feel.
First up, the beautiful dragonfly baby doll from Curvy Kate. I’ve actually got the bra and brief set for this already and I love the fit! So when this babydoll set came to me I knew it would be a winner. When it comes to baby dolls, it felt like forever to find one with a good fit, one that actually existed in cup sizes not clothes sizing! And Curvy Kate know best. I love their baby dolls and this one doesn’t let me down at all. The sheer tulle, the deep wine colour. Sexy yet sophisticated and perfect if your having a day where you’re not feeling yourself. The floating coverage of material, a cheeky cleavage, with a cheeky brief to match! I received my set in a 36H and the fit was fabulous, the briefs I received in a size 18. With this set I think sizing up in the briefs would make it more comfortable. This set currently runs from a size 32D to a 44G.
The next set I was sent was the so pretty Pour Moi Opulence. As soon as I opened it I was so excited by the gorgeous pink, the lace detail and the balconette style. I’m still quite new to Pour Moi and each time I’m surprised with not only the fit but the value for money. This set is only £28 for the bra and £14 for the briefs and is so comfortable. This is what I’d call my sassy set. The set you wear under work wear, perfect for day to day but making you feel like a queen underneath! The set you put on when you want to read a book, have a cuppa and a cuddle in a duvet and still feel like a model in a catalogue! This set runs from a size 30E to a 44G, and the briefs a size 8 to 30 so a great range! And the hot pink bow details, super cute.
The last set is 100% my all time favourite Scantilly set to date. The way this set made me feel is how I want to feel every day. Like a goddess. The leatherette look, the sheer briefs, the high waist, the buckle detail. Every part of it is so thought out, with curves in mind. I love a high waist brief, on those bloated days, the days where you just need that extra bit of comfort in your pants! And the half cup bra. So sexy. Honestly I felt incredible. This set is currently available in a 30D to a 38H and the high waist briefs in a small to extra large. I received mine in a 36H and the briefs and extra large. This set is currently in the sale at just £35! Which if you know Scantilly is an absolute bargain. So if you want it, head over quickly as it’s selling out fast!
So there we have it. This year I’m treating me! I’m putting self love first this Valentines. When I put on a properly fitted, matching set of pretty underwear, and I take a look in the mirror, I think yes girl! That’s when I know it’s going to be a good day. This valentines I’m treating myself to a yes girl moment. Are you? 💋
