Every now and again I pick up a dress on eBay, or a swap/sell FaceBook group that has been long discontinued by the manufacturer. Sometimes it’s an older style that I’ve never got around to purchasing, other times it’s a style that I didn’t necessarily want until after seeing it styled in real life. This dress certainly falls into the former category.
I’ve always loved lingerie, but over the past few years it has taken a backseat to my need for clothing. Between gaining weight, my body changing shape and changing jobs I’ve had to build my wardrobe from almost nothing. However, now that I’ve finally settled into a job and have plenty of clothes for nights out and burlesque ventures, it’s finally time to start focusing on lingerie!
In the following post, I’ve compiled a number of items that fall into different categories. Each category represents a different kind of lingerie that I’d like to incorporate into my wardrobe. With options ranging from bralettes to corsets, I’m sure you’ll find something you love as well.
I love shapewear, there is nothing better the putting on a sleek piece of lingerie underneath my everyday clothes. It’s like a little secret that flaunts my curves and boots my self esteem. Sure, shapewear had some negative stigmas, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to believe them. Shapewear isn’t just for middle age women who want to hide the extra weight after their pregnancy and it most certainly doesn’t exist in boring basic colors. Here are some of my favorite pieces that are currently available.
