The Right Lingerie – Weekly Wishlist

Valentine’s Day is coming, and that will mean lingerie sales will rocket. But, it’s never the right lingerie, is it? Our other half never seems to get it right. We don’t want nasty, cheap, bright red, peekaboo bras or crotchless knickers! We want pretty, sexy, quality lingerie which will make us look, and feel, fabulous.

So, here’s our handy guide to the right lingerie. Just send this link to your other half, and you might be pleasantly surprised!

We like bodies, sexy and comfortable – we can do both, right? H&M have some fantastic 80s-inspired underwear bodies. The cerise pink lace and mesh version (£19.99) is more of the sexy type, but still with fashion points, agreed? And the lovely nude lace high-neck number (£19.99) is sexy and subtle. What’s not to love?

We love a bit of pale pink/nude lingerie, and yes it is sexy , more than you might think. H&M’s balconette bra (£12.99) and briefs (£6.99) fit the, er, brief…

New Look’s cream patterned longline bra (£14.99) and briefs (£5.99) have a retro feel to them.

Floozie by FrostFrench @ Debenhams’ bra (£18.50) and suspender thong (£12.50) are girlie sexy, right? We love the playful print and lace trim. We also love the ‘Hey Sweetie’ knickers (£7) by The Collection @ Debenhams.

Weekly Wishlist the right lingerieBHS’s blue lace briefs (£5) and matching blue and white bra (£14) are pastel perfection, and one of this year’s two Pantone Colors of the Year, serenity. Also at BHS, we love a cream cami (£12) when you need an extra lingerie layer.

If black is the right lingerie for you, we know you will love this longline bra (£25) and lace briefs (£9) from Gorgeous @ Debenhams. Or maybe you would love your other half to gift you a black chemise from New Look (£19.99).

We’ve chucked a suspender belt in there, in black – a girl’s got to have one at least! This one is from New Look (£9.99).

Finally, some cutesy frilly knickers from White Stuff (£7.50). So, that’s all the right lingerie we’ll need this Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Lingerie

It’s Valentine’s Day this weekend – how nice is it that it falls on a Saturday!? No matter what you are doing this Valentine’s Day – spending it with your loved one, with friends, or alone, make sure you do it in some Valentine’s lingerie.

And no, by Valentine’s lingerie, we don’t mean bright red lace/tacky suspenders-and-a basque-type lingerie. We do love red, and we do love lace, and there is nothing wrong with suspenders or basques, but try to stay classy, right?!

Guys, if you are reading this post and planning a Valentine’s lingerie gift, then here’s what to buy, okay?

Let’s start with grey – well, isn’t 50 Shades of Grey the movie the big Valentine’s event this year? So, throw out the lingerie that is grey because it’s old and worn, and invest in some pretty grey undies! Grey doesn’t have to be dull – look at this gorgeous Reger Noir by Janet Reger set from Debenhams; we love it. (Bra £25, Briefs £15, Suspenders, £20). GAP have a wide selection of gorgeous underwear separates like their lace knickers (£7) and this lovely grey detail bra (£22.95). And over at BHS, lace trimmed jersey looks great in this shorts (£4) and bra (£16) combination.

valentine's lingerie greyValentine’s lingerie should be sexy. But we don’t want to look tacky. So, how do we get it right? Perhaps a cute little baby doll like this red one from Kelly Brook @ New Look (£19.99) works for you? Or, from the same range, a 1980s style black lace body (£16.99). Retro style lingerie is flattering to curves, and comfortable and sexy at the same time. We love Kelly Brook’s cream and black set of bra (£9.99), high waisted briefs (£4.99) and suspenders (£6.99).

valentine's lingerie sexy retroNavy high-waisted lace briefs (£5) and a matching bra (£14) are simple, yet sexy at BHS, and Floozie by FrostFrench @ Debenhams retro heart-print Valentine’s lingerie is playful and fun (bra, £20, high waisted briefs, £12.50, Debenhams)

Bright and colourful, or pale and floral? Lingerie can be pretty and sexy – it’s not the pattern or print, but how you wear it right? There’s nothing more sexy than confidence.

If you love bold colour, you will love neon lingerie like New Look’s lime green and white side string briefs (£5.99) and matching bra (£12.99). Or the bright white and acid coral lace detail bra (£22.50) and briefs (£10) by Gorgeous @ Debenhams. Also at Debenhams by Gorgeous, how about some polka-dots and florals in bright, bold red? Bra, £22.50, briefs, £8.50.valentine's lingerie floral bright

New Look’s delicate white and yellow lace overlay bra (£12.99) and briefs (£5.99) are pretty, as is their floral longline bra  (£17.99) and fuller briefs (£4.99) set.

We love the delicate pale blue and white lace bra (£12) and matching knickers (£5) at BHS, and the bolder navy floral bra (£tbc) and knickers (£tbc) set by Spirit @ Debenhams. Ultimate @ Debenhams lovely orange set is perfect for spring (bra, £22, briefs, £7.50).
