Pretty Underwear

There is something truly sexy about a matching set of underwear……..especially when teamed with stockings and a garter belt. I once got told that wearing that stuff is conforming to non-feminist beliefs, that I was dressing up for men. But I have to be honest wearing that stuff makes ME feel sexy, it has nothing to do with anyone else, male or otherwise. It is all about making me feel good about me, making me feel sexy. And a good matching set does that. Do I wear matching underwear all the time? No I don’t. My everyday underwear is all about comfort, black cotton Sloggi hi-legs, and a nice (but plain) bra. Don’t get me wrong I would love to wear matching sets all the time but at Β£45 a set, it’s way out of my budget. Maybe one day.

I did a general ask on twitter about pretty underwear, and after some discussion the general consensus was that most people like to see photos of women in pretty underwear, as opposed to completely naked. Only one person said “As nice and pretty as your bras are, I would still rather you be naked!” Β Which surprised me I expected a lot more people would prefer naked.




*If you get an urge to buy me pretty underwear (or want to contribute to my pretty underwear fund), you can email me Bravissimo vouchers to or check out my wishlist (you need to put my email in the search box).

  1. Pretty underwear is totally feminist if you’re wearing it because you want to (ie, not being hassled into it) and it makes you feel good.
    My thoughts are that a lot of guys don’t appreciate pretty underwear enough.
    Men, if you’re reading this, don’t be in a rush to pull those gorgeous bras and knickers off. Us girls put a lot of time and effort into sourcing them, so they need to be appreciated, not yanked off and flung on the floor (flattering as that is in its own way)! πŸ˜‰

    • I’ve had some terrifying conversations with some ladies who made me feel bad for lots of things. Apparently they felt I had been brainwashed and wasn’t making my own decisions because I disagreed with them.

      Lots of the guys on twitter (well the ones who follow me) did say they liked and appreciated nice underwear on a lady. πŸ™‚

  2. Years ago, I read two books on body image, The Beauty Trap and The Beauty Myth, and they revolutionised my life. I read them till they fell apart.
    At the time, me and my friends valued ourselves solely by the way we looked (or wanted to look) and were hideously self critical about the minutest aspects of our appearance. It’s wrong and toxic.
    I can totally see where certain feminists are coming from, in terms of encouraging girls and women to recognise their value beyond their appearance.
    However, those two books made it clear the gaping chasm between buying, wearing and enjoying ‘superficial’ things like make-up, clothes, shoes, jewellery, lingerie, and defining your worth solely in relation to these things.
    We’re so lucky, living in the West, and in the 21st century – women can enjoy pretty things and still gain the education and credibility to kick ass in the boardroom and on the sports fields etc.
    Feminism is about girls and women having the freedom and education to make informed, empowered choices. It’s not up to other people to decide those choices for them.
    Those lasses are tying themselves into knots over nothing. It’s a shame they can’t lighten up!
    ***RANT OVER!***

    • Soooo. I’ve decided to be a bit cheeky. If you ever fancy doing me a guest post on feminism and beauty and sex blogging (basically what you’ve said above) I would love that. Did try to DM you on twitter but couldn’t.

      Do realise I am being cheeky so please feel free to tell me to sod off. *blush*

      • Hey, I’d love to, thanks for asking. πŸ™‚
        You’ve read my mind actually, when I finished the rant, I thought ‘There’s a blog post in there somewhere’ and now I have the perfect platform.
        Do you have any word count or stylistic requirements?
