My 10 Lingerie Essentials

After you've had children it's easy to feel a little slummy and not as confident and sexy as before.
There are ways around that, to make yourself feel better. Regularly using a face mask to make your skin feel nice, treating yourself to a decent moisturiser or cosmetics palette. Regularly getting your hair cut, or just putting a little bit of mascara and lipstick.
Lingerie is also a great way of giving yourself a little bit of confidence.

There are so many different varieties of underwear that it's easy to find something which will make you feel good about yourself. It could be the shape it creates, the colour, the fabric. The way it makes you feel, comfortable, sexy, pretty, feminine.

These are my chosen 10 Lingerie Essentials, all chosen from Debenhams.

 
Floozie by Frost French- Black bow balcony bra £20
Matching hipster briefs £8
I love that the details on this set are girly with the bows, the frills and the small lacy details but I think the colours make it suitable for someone who maybe isn't in touch with their girly side so much.
 
Triumph Black Amourette 300 lace balcony bra £34 (although currently on offer at £27.20 at time of this post going live)
This bra is also available in a beautiful Dark Red.
 There are matching briefs available with this bra but I think plain briefs would look just as pretty.
I think the lace is pretty and feminine and the shape is really flattering.

 
Gorgeous- Navy Polka Dot Shorts £6.50 (£5.20 in the current 20% off discount)
Gorgeous Navy Polka Dot Bra £21 (currently down to £16.80)
I adore polka dots, I think there is something quite sexy and flattering about them. I love the details on the shorts, and on the bra...although the bra is for sizes D-H so isn't something I could buy but the shorts definitely are. They would look great with a plain navy tshirt bra too.
 
Von Follies by Dita Von Teese. Red flocked spot bra- £32 (Currently £25.60)
Briefs £20 (currently £16)
Now, if anyone can design something perfect for women it's Dita Von Teese. I love the polka dots (again) and the softness of the colour. 
Debenhams Natural Firm Control Thigh Slimmer £24 (Currently £19.20)
This year I finally got myself a pair of thigh slimmer pants. I now swear by them with particular outfits.
I think the thigh slimmers give a much better shape than the brief versions.
 
Pack of 5 Black Briefs £7.
Ok so these are basic BUT I swear by a decent pair of black briefs. Good for the summer under a dress so you don't flash your bottom and great for the autumn and winter under thick black tights and a dress in case the wind blows up, as again you don't flash your bottom.
 J by Jasper Conran White Floral Lace Balcony Bra £18.50 (Currently £12.95)
Briefs £10.50 (Currently £7.35)
I love how girly this set is but that it also looks really comfortable. 
Playtex Natural 'Tonique Contour' T Shirt bra £31 (Currently £24.80)
Nude bras are essential for, well, everything, as are t shirt bras. They go under any colour top and ensure a nice smooth shape

Another Von Follies Light Blue Floral and Lace bra £35 (Currently 28)
Briefs £20 (currently £16)
I think this set would make any woman feel beautiful and confident. The lace is really feminine and stands out against the light blue of the main fabric.

Floozie by Frost French Bright Pink Lace Balcony Bra £18 (Currently £9)
I adore this bra. I think it's so beautiful, and for someone who doesn't normally like pink I just think that this bright colour would make the wearer feel really pretty. Floozie bras have always been something I've been attracted to because of the detail and this bra is an example of why.
