With the most romantic day in the calendar fast approaching, I have a question for you: is your lingerie ready? For the lingerie lovers amongst us, Valentines Day – and particularly night – is the perfect opportunity to try out something steamy, sumptuous and new. But in the wonderful world of underwear, what do you go for? Traditionally red is the colour that is associated with Valentines lingerie – and it’s certainly a colour that works in the world of undergarments. But don’t be constrained by tradition; your lingerie choice is a deeply personal affair. Valentine’s day or not – lingerie is your opportunity to express yourself in an exciting and intimate way. Here’s our handy Sparkling Strawberry guide to five Valentines lingerie looks that will set all pulses racing…
If you really want to knock the socks off your nearest and dearest and give them a Valentines Day to remember, then how about venturing into the va va voom world of bodystockings? Never tried a bodystocking? Well there’s an art to choosing and wearing them (see this handy bodystocking guide for tips). But once you are in, a bodystocking can make you the queen of body confidence, sexy self-expression and nearly too hot to handle. OK, they’re not every lingerie lover’s cup of tea, but if you feel comfortable shimmying into this electrifying garment, the Valentines power is all yours. This red net bodystocking creation strikes the right tone.
Or you could channel your inner rock chick with this black cut out creation:
Sometimes a fantastic bra and panty set is all that’s needed for a romantic encounter to write home about. Go with red, or black with a hint of red, for that traditional Valentines look…
Or maybe re-examine your colour palette and go with a colour that sets off your skin tone beautifully. A hot pink, or even a blue or purple will certainly push some buttons.
If you really want to blast a few cobwebs away, a figure defining basque or bustier set may be the thing for you. You can draw attention to all your wonderful curves and give yourself a nice boost in the boob department at the same time. The Hollywood sirens of old all loved a good basque and it’s something that has simply not gone out of fashion. This lace-up corset in merlot by Coquette is simply smoking hot and hits all the right Valentines notes:
Or, if that’s a little too hot then you could go for a luxurious satin and lace creation that oozes old school glamour:
In the privacy of your Valentines boudoir, or during an intimate dinner for two at home, a sexy babydoll creation can really get the temperature rising. Why not shimmy into the room in a sultry lace creation like this:
A gorgeous babydoll covers up your lovely body in a tantalising fashion and makes you feel like a million dollars as well. This cute pink babydoll with heart cut-out is also a searingly sexy option:
A sexy playsuit or teddy is a pretty perfect garment for a Valentines Day encounter with your nearest and dearest. It’s one of the steamiest items that you can don and will raise more than a wry smile. How about this black lace teddy with metallic red highlighting on the Valentine’s red rose details?
Or perhaps you prefer to go with the more traditional red lace teddy. This one with a strappy back is perfect for Valentine’s day.
Whatever your Valentine’s tipple, why not enhance the fun on February 14th and inject some electricity into your love and sex life? These wonderful creations are great additions to any lingerie drawer and can of course be brought out 365 days a year, as a reminder of a sizzling Valentines day to remember.
