Every February nzgirl does a lingerie special around Valentine’s Day, featuring all our favourite finds for the romantic season. This time we decided to do something a little bit different…
Instead of focusing on those luxe, sexy, silky numbers that your partner loves, why not pick something that makes you
Find lingerie that makes you feel amazing, and tackles all those areas you aren’t so confident with. This February we want you to be a little kind to yourself when it comes to your underwear!
To complete the package go for all over body glamour with smooth, hair-free skin using the Braun Silk-’epil X’elle Epilator. It removes the most stubborn of hair from legs, underarms and even the bikini area. After all, a silky smooth hair-free body is the perfect accessory for lush lingerie! Read on to find out how you can win one for yourself…
There is a lot of talk on the forums about the struggles of finding lingerie suited to bigger busts – let alone something that fits, is supportive and pretty to boot! The best advice I can give is when it comes to support and a great look, always go for the brands that specialise in this area. It you have a fuller bust, then see the specialists at Fayreform and Zabu - they come well recommended for a reason.

A tummy can sometimes feel a bit like a confidence sapper, and when it comes to taming it, flashes of not-so-hot control underwear spring to mind. Thankfully there are other options! Sometimes all you need is a teeny bit of a higher waist, or maybe a cute corset or flower cami. And if push comes to shove and you do want the control underwear, reach for the flirty and oh so very sexy 50s inspired lines.

When it comes to things higher up, we all know about push up bras. However, some women may not like all the padding, or want curve creation in other areas. This is when things like lace, silk, ruffles, ribbons and mixed patterns are fantastic. And if you really want the impact mix all of the above with padding for sublime curves.

Hips and Thighs
While stockings look amazing on, they also have a great slimming and smoothing effect on legs, which can be enough to give you the confidence to step out in style. Higher up the leg, you’ll find a high cut pantie can do wonders to lengthen and slim. However, if that’s not your style, go for something with sheer panelling (mesh or lace) across the hip line to give the most flattering finish. Sexy silk robes cover the hips and butt, yet leave just enough skin showing. And of course, there’s always the basic chemise - an old favourite and a great confidence booster.
1: Lace Top Denier Stay Ups $15.95 from Bras n Things
2: Pleasure State Mini Brief $85.00 from Zodee
3: Basic Satin Chemise $22.00 from Bras n Things
