Meet Francesca, the blogger behind LaceNoir, your offical guide to lingerie, straight from the British high street. She is going to share with you her favourite pieces, try out new products so you don’t have to and give you an insight into all of the deliciously decadent lingerie that is available to you at totally affordable prices.
Valentine’s day is looming, you have some date night outfits at the ready, makeup ideas, hair inspiration, but what about your lingerie?
Your underwear is the key to your confidence. Although it can’t be seen, the layer you choose to wear on the inside has the biggest impact on how you feel on the outside. So when it comes to lingerie, it’s important that you choose a style that not only reflects your fashion sense, but that also flatters your body shape & makes you feel like a million $$$.
Exclusively for The Chrissy Collective readers, I have chosen 4 beautiful & completely different lingerie styles that are perfect for the romantic weekend ahead. As me & Chrissy are international neighbours, all the products featured in today’s post are not only available on both sides of the Atlantic but they are super affordable, too.
You’re welcome, honey 😘 .
Even if these exact 4 styles are not for you, I hope they will inspire you to try something new or to get really personal with your choice of lace this Valentine’s day.
£28 / $43
Here at LaceNoir I LOVE a body. I always find them so comfortable & flattering on every shape & size; so I couldn’t not feature this beautiful white lace body from Lepel London, available from ASOS.
The contrast of the crochet style lace & the blush satin ribbon are the perfect mix for a dreamy romantic style. The plunging neckline & low back add a hint of sexy while still keeping the style super sweet. I’m pretty sure that if we could take a peek at what Cinderella wore under that beautiful gown it would have been the Sophia body.
£45 / $65 (Set with briefs)
If a bra & knicker set is more your style, then Roxanne will definitely get you feeling festive. In a beautiful shade of pillar box red this set is stylish & modern with some sexy little twists.
I adore the little key hole details on the front & back of the briefs & her unexpected cross over lace racerback on the bra. Roxanne is feisty & cheeky, & I reckon she will give you that inner boost ready for your V-day plans.
£29.99 / $34.99 (currently on sale for $25!!)
Cottelli is here to answer all your prayers for that gorgeous, slinky dress you chose for date night. Not only will she provide you with a killer silhouette, you can team her with your own bra for the perfect, individual base layer.
Her knee length skirt & curvaceous design just screams, confident, sexy, Valentine’s day goddess.… & not to mention how practical this will be the rest of the year round, I’m officially in love… #AddstoCart.
£45 / $57
If you’re looking for something with a little more punch, I have 1 more body for you that is the complete opposite to the sweet disposition of Sophia: The Wallbanger. I have no idea why the name sounds so vicious but the body itself is gorgeous & it will be sure to bring out your inner vixen.
Black lace, mesh & satin panelling make up this dramatic & sexy style. With added cleavage & a thong back, this body is not only a treat for the eyes, but is also a practical choice to wear under your chosen outfit.
I’m not sure what’s happening across the pond right now, but underwear as outerwear is a massive trend here in the UK at the minute; so if you’re brave enough, you could even team this with a pair of high waisted jeans & a cute little jacket & rock it as your V-day style.
What do you guys think of the underwear as outerwear trend? I’d love to hear some opinions on this from the US. I personally haven’t tried it yet… it’s far too cold here for me to leave the house with anything less than a jumper & a coat! Haha.
