By definition, Underwear focuses more on functionality and comfort, whilst Lingerie handles the aesthetics and design side of things.
But in this day and age, we’re starting to see the lines blur a little. With fashionistas such as Kendall Jenner and Katy Perry wearing their lingerie as everyday wear, do we have to keep the lingerie for the bedroom and can we begin to combine the terms Lingerie and Underwear?
During these current times, many of us have found ourselves at home wearing pyjamas all day. Not exactly what we think of when we hear the word sexy. But a quick and easy fix is to throw on a romantic lace bralette under that sweater, and your confidence will be through the roof in no time. Bralettes can be functional and beautiful and a perfect starter item for dipping your toe into the waters of Lingerie.
Most importantly, buying something special doesn’t have to be for anyone other than you. It’s all about you and your confidence, and how comfortable you feel at the end of the day. You should never feel pressured into buying something that doesn’t suit your life. Go at your own pace, girl. Have some fun!
We’re beginning to see more and more brands starting to branch out into the sexier side of things by upgrading the everyday essentials with a pop of colour or a little lace detailing. But if Lingerie isn’t your thing and you’d prefer to save the lace for the bedroom we’ve got you covered.
So if you’re interested in updating your essentials drawer, or you like the idea of saving the sexy for special occasions, keep on reading. We’ve got something for everyone!
