Hello lovely ladies, do you know what has been making me feel really bad about myself of late. Putting on those bras that had gone grey or bobbly! I remember when I finally released myself of those maternity bras after our extended breastfeeding journey had finished. I headed out, by myself, got myself refitted and bought some new bras. It felt amazing. But I realised that was over four years ago. And I was still wearing those bras. They were starting to look pretty decrepit. And it was making me feel like a frump. I realised at that moment why it’s so important that women should invest in new lingerie.
Invest in yourself
When you invest in new lingerie, it’s not a frivolous and selfish indulgent. Think about it – your lingerie is the first thing you put on in the morning. And if you’re not feeling good about the underwear you’re putting on in the morning, how is that going to be setting you up for the day?
No, I have decided that when you invest in new lingerie, it is not some shallow pursuit. It is part of setting yourself up for a miracle morning as far as I’m concerned.
I know this because so sick of putting on those now shabby bras had I become, that I promised myself I would invest in new lingerie. That first started with a me-time shopping trip to the usual suspects. The thing it that lingerie shopping is much like shopping for swimwear. It can either be pretty uninspiring or you can feel totally ridiculous in it!
I had plenty of the both on that outing.
So when UK Lingerie got in touch to ask if I’d like to sample some of their lingerie I was as happy as a monkey with a peanut machine! I promise you now – it’s very hard to go onto their site and walk away with nothing. Your problem will probably be wanting to choose too many gorgeous pieces of lingerie!
Every morning, I put on my brand new shiny lingerie and do you know what? I feel empowered, confident and feminine. Sure I may only be wearing a tee from H&M with a breakfast stain over it. But that act of putting on something I feel good about in the morning, and that looks gorgeous makes all the difference. Yes, I know I am no Victoria’s Secret model, and maybe nobody else will see it that day. But it’s that simple act of putting on some gorgeous lingerie in that mad dash of a morning, which can make all the difference to your day. Or at the very least, cheer you up.
You all know my favourite saying in life is “Fake it ’til you make it”. If we invest in new lingerie and that helps us fake it a bit, then nobody needs to know that’s our little secret do they?
What do you think about the notion women should invest in new lingerie? Can you remember the last time you did so?
