Lingerie has become a large part of my life as I not only have a big passion for it, I also want to pursue a career in designing it. I believe that confidence is definitely boosted by a beautiful underwear set and style starts from what’s closest to the skin. This post is going to focus on how to find the perfect underwear for you and why I think investing in underwear is important.
It may come as a surprise that the majority of women in the UK are wearing the wrong bra size, we need to remember that our bodies are constantly growing and changing and your bra size from three years ago probably isn’t your bra size now. Many women find it uncomfortable to go get measured in a shop so here’s a lifesaving explanation on how to find out your bra size from the comfort of your own house.
- Take a measuring tape and wrap it around your ribs, just under your boobs. Make a note of this measurement in inches and add 5. This is the ‘number part’ of your bra size, so if this measurement was 29 inches, for instance, you’d add 5 to get 34. If you’re between sizes (say you got 31 inches for example) always size up, you can use the adjustable hooks on the back of the bra to tailor it to fit you.
- To work out your cup size you need to measure around your boobs; run the measuring tape around the fullest part of your breasts and make a note of this measurement. Work out the difference between the number you got before and this measurement, if the difference is 1 inches you’re an A cup, if it’s 2 inches you’re a B and so on.
There, wasn’t that easy?
So, why do I think lingerie is so important? Lingerie empowers us. It makes us feel sexy, beautiful and powerful (and also a bit naughty as no one else knows the true extent of its beauty but us!). The delicacy and intricacy of lingerie excites me and I think nothing compares to going lingerie shopping. You won’t ever see me leaving a lingerie shop without a big smile on my face!
Try it for a week – wear gorgeous matching underwear sets everyday for an entire week and I promise you you’ll feel more confident and happy. You get an instant boost by putting them on, looking in the mirror and thinking ‘damn, I look good’ and that feeling continues throughout the day.
Lingerie isn’t just there to keep you modest, nor is it just for the enjoyment of your partner, lingerie is there for you. Making yourself feel happy and confident should be your main priority and I think investing in good underwear is the best way to do that.
