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!
