Loving Lately, Lingerie Edition (2/19/2015)

Sassy title! I couldn’t resist. We’re getting intimate today and talking about…our intimates!

bralettes

I have a love-hate relationship with bras and am super picky when choosing my undergarments. For this reason alone I absolutely despise lingerie shopping! But I can’t deny the automatic boost of confidence that a pretty bra gives me. Enter the bralette.

(my favorite pink bralette – love this one too)

I’m probably late to the game but I recently discovered my love for these lacy lightweight wonders. Maybe it has something to do with their straightforward sizing (small, medium, large), or maybe it’s simply the fact that they’re so comfortable you barely notice you’re wearing anything at all. I snagged all of mine during great sales at various stores including Victoria’s Secret, Madewell, and Urban Outfitters.

With no wires or padding, bralettes are perfect to wear around the house or while running quick errands. But bustier ladies never fear…there are even bralettes with underwire for those who may want some extra support.

Personally, I absolutely love the sheer quality of bralettes. Some of them are lightly lined but many are completely see-through, oh la la! Even though I don’t exactly have a special boytoy to showcase my bralette collection to, I still love feeling just a tad bit sexier knowing what’s hiding underneath my clothes. And what’s sexier than a little bit of lace peeking out for some eye candy?

Pardon the TMI post, but I couldn’t resist sharing my most recent obsession!

Ladies, let’s chat about lingerie! Love it, hate it, or are indifferent to it?

    I think I would have many more positive feelings about lingerie if it weren’t so effing expensive. I mean, obviously you can get good deals and whatnot, but MAN those prices can be tough to swallow. That said, Nordstrom Rack, forever and ever amen. I’ve gotten some pretty nice name brand bras there for awfully cheap.

      Oh I totally agree! I actually despise lingerie shopping for so many reasons, and price is one of them. I think the only time I actually lingerie shop is during the VS Semi-Annual sale…I snagged these bralettes for $5 each! I mean, you can’t beat that. T.J Maxx, Nordstrom Rack, and Marshall’s are great bargain stores too!

    I live in bralettes and sports bras! Haha…actually, more of the latter since they’re just so much easier to deal with (sizing, washing, etc.). Bralettes also do come in handy when it comes to layering!

      Yay another bralette lover! I don’t think I’ve ever worn a sports bra outside of working out but bralettes are the BEST, especially for layering as you mentioned!
