Every year, we are inundated with messages about Valentine’s Day and the many ways to celebrate it. As always, most of the rhetoric is about romantic entanglements. What gets lost amongst all the noise about candlelit dinners and diamond necklaces is that Valentine’s Day, and its celebration of love, encompasses a whole lot more than amorous relationships. Here are some suggestions from our lingerie store to make your heart race.
New Year, New You?
This year, widen your scope a little and spread the love a little farther than you usually would. There are a lot more ways to love and just as many ways to shop for or gift lingerie along those lines. So here are seven different ways you can be a lover this Valentine’s Day.
Sexy lingerie isn’t just for special occasions, and neither are declarations of love limited to just one day. No matter what stage your relationship is in, you can always make an effort to infuse it with a little spark now and then. These sensual numbers will spice up playtime, creating moments you and your lover will not soon forget.
Friendship bracelets aren’t the only way to be all matchy-matchy with your bestie. Give your friends the gift of beautiful lace and a mode of self-expression. Friends don’t let friends go through life without good lingerie right? While you’re at it, don’t forget to talk to your buddies about the importance of getting a professional bra fitting. You could make a girls day out of it, with the boutique as one of the stops on your Adams Morgan itinerary.
A lot of people don’t consider lingerie when it comes to giving gifts to family members because most of the imagery and messaging around it is about sex and couples. That shouldn’t be the case because lingerie IS fundamental and can be self-affirming. So think about giving lingerie to your sister who just had a baby and is having trouble seeing herself as desirable, to your cousin who has a wedding coming up, or to your mum, to remind her that she’s strong and beautiful.
Christmas isn’t the only time of the year when you can practice goodwill. This Valentine’s Day, share the life-changing magic of well-fitting bras and gorgeous lingerie with someone else. Introduce them to the best place to do some lingerie shopping in Washington DC, give them a Le Bustiere gift card, or do both!
Here’s to all the #NetflixAndChill-ers, the no-strings baes and the role-play lovers. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about the smolder, it can be flirty and playful too. Whether you’re playing an elaborate game of “strangers at a hotel bar” or trying new things in the bedroom, this ruby-red body of delicate lace in curve-accentuating cuts, is sure to dial the romance up to an eleven.
Fact – lingerie is a foundational garment. It can be an extravagance, but at its core, it is absolutely essential. While some pieces are optional depending on body type and personal preference, once can’t exactly go full-body commando beneath one’s clothes 24/7. It’s as good a time as any to invest in lingerie that is not only made well, and provides the support you need, but is also gorgeous and makes you the star of your own show every day.
Take time to seduce yourself and bask in the belief that you have a body worthy of beautiful things. Slip into something that makes you look and feel like the Goddess you are, and indulge in your favorite things and activities. Whenever you need a boost of confidence, just think about how good you look under your clothes.
Lingerie is so much more than a tool to attract a lover, and we hope that this Valentine’s Day, you discover just how versatile and symbolic it can be. Stop into our boutique in Adams Morgan or give us a call.
