I was putting away my laundry yesterday and I came across my old lingerie. I bought it about 4 years ago, when I was feeling the opposite of sexy, in an attempt to feel better about myself for the sake of my marriage. I haven't worn it in about as long, but only because when I put it on after I got it, I felt the opposite of sexy. I was so deeply unhappy with my body that I couldn't feel sexy in anything, let alone the $100 or so of lingerie I had just bought. So to the back of the sock drawer it went, to be moved many many times, but never worn again.
So when I was putting away my socks, I grabbed it and thought I would try it on. My body is different than it was the last time I wore it, and my mind is DEFINITELY different than the last time I wore it, so I figured what do I have to lose. And the awesome thing was- I felt sexy! I was kinda shocked how what once highlighted all of my flaws was now highlighting my curves. Which gave me the idea for this post.
I believe that every woman of every size deserves to feel sexy. But feeling sexy isn't just about the clothes (or lack there of) you have on. It is about how you feel about yourself. I can't help you with that one, thats between you and your mirror, but I can show you my favorite pieces and places to find good quality, well fitting, sexy (and normal) underwear.
I own pieces from all of these places, so I feel pretty good speaking to their quality. I wouldn't ever recommend something I haven't tried, and clearly these people don't know who I am, I just want to show you my favorites.
#1- Lane Bryant. This habit dies hard when it comes to underwear. While I revel in the fact that I don't have to buy all my clothes here anymore, I can't seem to find a good day to day bra and underwear I love like theirs. Now its important to get fitted and try on different styles, because some styles I love and some I hate. I found one style that fits me and is comfortable, so I stick to it. I am pretty lame.
The Smooth T-shirt bra is where its at for me. I am a no frills kind girl, so I like that it doesn't have lace or anything fancy. It goes well under clothes, and is supportive and still cute.
They also have a nice selection of sexy stuff, so you have options.
#2- Torrid. Can I just talk about how much I love Torrid? I feel like its the hip and young version of Lane Bryant. They have really stepped up their underwear game recently. And since I have my day to day stuff covered (literally, I wear the t-shirt bra and hipster panties every day) I like to look at Torrid for sexy stuff.
The Lace Unlined Demi Bra is pretty. Its like a date night bra.

And lastly #3- Hips and Curves. As far as I know they are exclusively online, but I have been impressed with their quality.
I won't give you recommendations.... That feels weird. Go. Have fun. They have some really pretty stuff :D
I hope that helped for those of you asking where I get my underwear. And if you are still wearing those $3 for 10 Walmart panties and you aren't feeling very sexy, maybe taking a trip to one of these places can help.
Where is your favorite place to buy underwear?
