Be ours this Valentine’s Day. Discover how the prettiest underwear can turn your Netflix and chill sesh into something a little more sophisticated, or your at-home date night with a bottle of red and some George Michael vinyl, into something worth being carelessly whispered about.
Whatever you’re doing on 14th February this year, we got you covered – or, rather, we’ll have you ready to get a little uncovered.
Mother Nature has got nothing on you. This intimate set from Lounge has embroidered floral fancies trailing down from your chest to the rest. With its myriad of mesh detailing, the soft scalloped details and gold decals gives this pick a little class, while its sheer, champagne hues is enough to make even Aphrodite blush.
Looking to slip into something a little more comfortable than a whole set? M&S is making it easy for us with this alternative to tattoo embroidery.
With these high-leg knickers, you don’t have to resist tucking into the chocolate-coated strawberries after dinner. This practical pick promises to suit your silhouette sexily with its Swiss design. And black underwear? It’s the best. Make V-Day every day with this sultry wardrobe staple.
Now we love Natalie Portman in Black Swan as much as the next girl, but in this match, it’s no competition between you and any ballerina. Check out this handmade bodysuit for the bedroom, which frames your body with beautiful lace rims, cross-backed – tying you up into a bow just waiting to be unwrapped.
This little piece is unique to With Love Lilly. And with all of these rose petals, who needs a bunch of flowers anyway?
We couldn’t help but dive into the array of pretty black underwear out there, but we have a feeling this is one of the exceptions. Handsewn by an American underwear brand, this beautiful butterfly pick is bound to make a rose-hip garden out of your curves, with wings that cling to your hips and sequins in the wings and dips.
The butterfly is fluttering, hearts are fluttering – what’s Maura’s saying from Love Island, again?
Candy love hearts or underwear? With this pick, you can have both. From a line curated by self-proclaimed bad girl Rihanna, love is surely on the brain in an array of love-core reds, pinks, and heart detailing. With a more affordable price point, this set piece is bound to make more of heart-throb out of you than a whole tub of heart-shaped Haribos.
Now we know the price of this one is a little eye-watering (emphasis on the little), but with an impact as big as this, we reckon it may just be worth the tears.
This ivory gown is so sheer it almost looks like glass, which gives a slick sheen to your body. From well-renowned brand Agent Provocateur, there’s no undercover vibes about this one – putting you on full display this Valentine’s Day to embrace the lace and let your date do the chasing.
Let’s take it downtown to Boux Avenue, with this lovely lacy all-in-one number. Decked in droplet detail, with a structured look around the bust, we love this simplistically luxurious bodysuit, which gives the air of ageless, angelic vibes. Plus, it’s easy enough to match with your favourite pair of stockings.
Our penultimate pick on our list is this smoking-hot push-up bra with matching pants. If you’re feeling fiery this February, this two-piece is the perfect pick. With its gold detailing and stretchy straps, it screams more Girl-Boss vibes than the Netflix hit. And with this fake-leather look, you’ll have plenty stretch room to fit after having the whole box of Ferreros to yourself. (No? Just us?)
And to wrap up our list, we’ve got a little something doing a Timothee Chalamet – because it is absolutely calling our name. With its dainty detailing and sexy straps, this bedroom chemise makes for slipping into something well worth the £45 spend.
