|Serenade Black with matching brief|
Every year I have a major wardrobe purge. Knowing that the clothes in my wardrobe are all things that I like to wear and that make me feel put together alleviates the stress of putting something on that makes me feel negative about my body. Since I started doing this five years ago I have found my body hang-ups have diminished significantly. I have a lot less clothing than I suspect many women have (about 15-20 items total) but they're all things I love to wear.
When it comes to lingerie I have to wear a bra everyday (as most busty women do) so rather than feel like my bras are just functional I have chosen to make them part of what makes me feel good. I own practical beige bras but I always buy ones that give me a shape I love or have pretty details. When I can buy matching underwear I do because I love that I have the option to be co-ordinated since the expansion of the D-K market.
There's no lingerie in the world that's going to miraculously make your life easier but we can choose to be happier. Choosing to feel beautiful and dress you body in a way that YOU find beautiful (there are no wrong decisions here) means you can start your day with confidence and happiness.
I challenge you to opt to wear your best underwear (matching knicks too wherever possible) for a week and see whether feeling beautiful just for you makes a difference. Life's too short to keep things for 'best'; let's make every day a reason for feeling beautiful. xx
