As Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, it is time to think of a perfect women’s clothing to commemorate such a special night. Most women wear lingerie for that most romantic night; a night that can spark and rekindle any lost or unheated relationship again.
Most women are looking for a lingerie that will keep her partner drooling all over her. However, buying lingerie for Valentine’s Day doesn’t necessarily mean it is for someone to look. Some women, even if they are single, buy lingerie for themselves.
Lingerie can be a sign of self-love and self-recognition. Moreover, it is not bad to sometimes feel attractive. Such can boost your self-esteem, confidence for yourself and a source of body empowerment. It is important to find as many ways as possible for you to show yourself love, especially those who are single during Valentine’s Day.
Nevertheless, buying lingerie for yourself or for someone you love with Valentine’s Day in mind can be quite exhausting and frustrating. Though there are so many exciting, elegant and beautiful types of lingerie in the market, looking for that perfect match is quite troublesome.
The Perfect Lingerie for Me
There are many types of lingerie you can come up. Some women would want something lacy, silky or wearable. Thinking of all the possible style of underwear can overwhelm you too much and eventually leave you hanging. You can either use a sporty set or a chic kind of underwear depending on your mood.
To start off, one of the all time favorites wore by women during Valentine’s day without being uncomfortable is a soft, cotton, lace lingerie. Use the kind of top without underwires so it won’t poke you while you can use a bottom that features an elastic-free leg hole.
If you are not a fan of lace or silk kind of lingerie, you can use a classic cotton as an alternative. This lingerie is a pullover style with wireless cups, racerback straps, and scoop neck. It also comes in different colors such as red and black.
There is more to Lingerie
Though wearing special lingerie in such a particular and romantic night for the love of your life, there is a deeper meaning to wearing such clothing. Because we live in a society dictated by standards and norms only created by the likes of us, such rules become distorted.
Some women don’t have the guts to wear lingerie because of the indoctrination of body shaming. Body shaming is prevalent in our culture, and often women are pushed to feel shame and remorse towards her body.
Women shouldn’t be judged singularly on aspects of physical appearance because there is more to a woman than just beauty. That is where lingerie comes in. Wearing lingerie gives women the sense of acceptance and confidence about her body. In short, it emanates body empowerment.
If you accept your body entirely to allow yourself the pleasure of looking for and finding the right match of lingerie that fits all in the right places and expresses your original personality, then that would be the right match of lingerie for you.
Single or not, buying and wearing lingerie is a decision only a right woman filled with confidence can do. Women may prefer a lace or silk kind of lingerie or vintage cotton lingerie, however, whatever kind of underwear you wear as long as you feel comfy, attractive and confident with it.
There is more to wearing underwear during Valentine’s Day. It is not just an act of affection to the love of your life, but an act of acceptance and body empowerment for women. Women are mostly judged on aspects of physical appearance and often gets objectify because of it.
However, the act of wearing lingerie is a sign of acceptance of your body and a decline of any act of judgment from people. The important thing is that you can express your style through what you wear and show how confident you are.
There comes, once in a while, an urge to relive certain beautiful, romantic moments. It may be with a current partner and you want to recreate old memories, or with someone new and you are feeling apprehensive. It may be with someone you have just fallen in love with, and you want that first time to be truly special. Whatever the reason for this special night, the most important thing is that you want it to be a night full of romance. Everyone hungers for romance and hardly anyone has enough. But if you can create a truly special night full of love and romantic fire, that spark may just be enough to turn your love and sex life around for good.
The thought of a night to remember, usually brings to mind a woman in super sexy lingerie, the ambiance of a dimly lit room, a bottle of sparkling wine and some exotic fruits on display. But things don’t always work out that beautifully for the majority of women, because most ladies are just too shy to step into the role of the seductive female.
It is a psychological block that prevents her from truly abandoning her ‘real self’ and taking up a more romantic or seductive personality. Unfortunately, this inability of many women to step into a ‘new role’ dampens the male ardor, and the relationship suffers as a result. On the other hand, if a woman could slip into super sexy lingerie, and simply ‘act the part’, then her lover’s desire for her will be uncontrollable, and his ardor, inexhaustible.
The Role of a Super Sexy Lingerie
Some lingerie are just too plain, conservative or simply have no edge to them. This is mostly the result of their design, or mis-design, of not accentuating a woman’s best qualities. Super sexy lingerie highlights parts of a woman’s femininity, while maintaining either a partial or a total veiling of the other parts of her body.
There is a deep seated desire in every man to finish up what he started, and to also see those remaining, veiled parts of her body. This desire is what ignites the flame of male passion. Super sexy lingerie therefore is suggestive and revealing, inviting a man inside and giving him enough space to explore her body. At the same time, the lingerie is also restrictive, forbidding easy visual or physical access to certain ‘taboo’ zones. This is what gets a man’s blood pumping, because it ignites that ancient hunter and conqueror instinct in him.
A Night that Changed History
It is 48 B.C., over 2,000 years ago, the Roman empire is the most powerful empire on earth, and Julius Caesar, the most powerful man in the world. Ptolemy XIV of Egypt has just managed to get rid of his sister and wife, Queen Cleopatra VII. He exiled her and made provisions to prevent her from ever returning to Egypt. Egypt is currently independent, but loyal to Rome, so Julius Caesar came to Alexandria this year to secure this loyalty. While in a meeting in the palace, Caesar receives a gift from a merchant, a rolled-up carpet, which the merchant carried on his shoulders. Expecting this present to be a rug, Caesar orders him to approach. So the merchant enters the court and rolls out the carpet, revealing a half-clothed Cleopatra who was hidden inside. She gently steps up like a goddess and as she started to speak, Julius Caesar fell under her spell and they became lovers that very night.
Love Lessons From Egypt’s Last Pharaoh
There are a few lessons any woman can learn from Cleopatra, the last active Pharaoh of Egypt and history’s most notorious seducer of great and powerful men:
When the carpet was unrolled before Caesar, she was recorded as being ‘half-clothed’, probably a reference to a super sexy lingerie. Over 2,000 years ago, this 21 year old Queen perfectly understood the lingerie principle of enticement and restriction. A woman should offer a lot romantically, but not everything, and this is the lesson. You have to make him come and get the rest.
As a queen who was unguarded, she took great risks to come to Julius Caesar that way. But that confidence, and her confident attitude towards him, her confident seductive dressing and her famous low-toned, but confident voice, all helped to make Julius Caesar fall madly in love with her that fateful night. A confident woman is a woman who has totally accepted herself as she is, including her vulnerabilities, but remains courageous enough to move on with life.
– Hot & Cold
As with the enticement and restrictiveness of her clothing, Queen Cleopatra also had a hot & cold attitude, otherwise known as coquetry. Although most women use coquetry on men, from time to time, to get what they want, they never really get quite hot. It is more like cold & colder by the majority of ladies. Cleopatra not only dressed provocatively, she also actively courted and excited Caesar, regularly taking the active role in their encounters, before falling back into her feminine self and letting him devour her with all his tempestuous passions.
To assure success on that special night, the super sexy lingerie to wear is something that you can be totally comfortable expressing yourself in. It should be both enticing and revealing, while being restrictive at the ‘hot zones’. Babydolls do come to mind, but you are free to make your own choice. Just make sure that it is subtly sensual and not too overt. Then turn up your self-assurance and give him some heat.
Triumph celebrates 127 years of lingerie and proves they still remain at the forefront of fashion after being named as the official supplier of underwear at London Fashion Week.
To celebrate their second collaboration with the British Fashion Council, Triumph has teamed up with designers including Matthew Williamson and Fyodor Golan who have created their own unique customizations of their underwear.
The designers’ styles will be on display at a special pop up event, Maison Triumph, in Covent Garden, London next week.
The pop up centre will also house an exhibition revealing Triumph’s styles across the decades since they were established in 1886 by merchant Michael Braun and corset-maker Johann Gottfried Spiesshofer.
From humble beginnings with just six sewing machines and six employees at their factory in southern Germany, they have gone on to become the world’s leading lingerie manufacturers with a presence in more than 120 countries and 37,500-plus employees.
In the beginning, Triumph production focused on corsets that emphasized the bust and derriere while tautly shaping the waist and hips in line with what was considered the perfect female shape during the Victorian era.
Triumph celebrates 127 years of lingerie with pop up event at Covent Garden
The company faced a challenge to their business in the 1920s when the corset began to fall out of favor as female fashion began to change radically and boyish shapes and the bra became more popular.
Triumph moved with the times and began developing new ranges of underwear including bras with front fastenings and adjustable straps.
Further developments in line with style tastes, their own innovations and incorporating new fabrics like Lycra, continued through the swinging sixties to the present day – with their signature corsets continually coming in and out of fashion again.
Visitors to the pop event can see this style evolution played out in the exhibition that includes some of the images you can view here.
There will also be a number of other special events at the pop up store including a question and answer sessions with industry experts including model-turned-designer Helena Christensen, who will unveil a sneak peek of her autumn/winter collection for Triumph.
Gossard launches Glossies, a gravity-defying, sheer and minimalist bra which allows well-endowed women to show off their assets with confidence.
The new Gossard Glossies bras have been uniquely moulded to embrace fuller cup sizes, while being as sexy as those available to smaller women.
The product has seamless inner “secret sling” which gives extra lift and projection without using heavyweight material.
It also has a hidden wire for extra support, a double layered wing to provide an anchored position and balanced support system.
Gossard will launch their new range with sizes ranging from D to GG as part of their Autumn Winter collection, along with their standard A-D cup sizes.
The bras were trialed by plus-size women who each wore the bra for 50 hours each.

“For many years bra designers have stumbled when faced with the larger cup sizes, and this has meant less attractive lingerie for ladies with a fuller figure,” says Gossard head designer Stacey Lindsay.
“Historically bigger sizes have been based on the smaller sizes, but have sacrificed style to deliver the much-needed support.
“Our team has worked relentlessly to find a way to make it possible to offer our most minimalist and sheer bra for our bigger-breasted customers.
“It was a huge challenge, and we were pioneering never-tried before techniques. But we’re now 100% satisfied we’ve developed a design that stays true to the core cup sized bra, without compromising on style, comfort or fit.”
The bra manufacturer is famous for its sexy campaigns, which includes a controversial advert featuring model Sophie Anderton which was launched in 1996 with the strapline: “Who said a woman couldn’t get pleasure from something soft?”
Gossard managing director, Tony Jarvis, says he’s delighted that boundaries are being pushed to deliver a pioneering approach to meeting customer demand.
“At Gossard we’re constantly striving to push the boundaries and apply new technologies and techniques to give our customers what they want,” he said.
“Glossies in bigger cup sizes is just the latest evolution, with gravity-defying design.”
The Glossies moulded bra, in cup size DD-G is available in black, white, mocha and nude from www.gossard.com.
