The L word (Lingerie)

Any ''fashionista'' (a person who has single-handedly stabilised the fashion economy)  knows the importance of the L word, in other words, lingerie. Choosing the right thing for the right outfit is nearly as important as waxing your legs, doing your hair and applying your make up before a night out. When I was younger, I under-valued the importance of choosing the right bra and the difference it makes to how a dress fits and suits you. Like most people, I am picky about where I buy it from. Certain places just seem right for you. It's not just about comfort. We all feel better when we have pretty underwear on, only me? I don't believe you.

Every week, whilst browsing through shops online, I seem to quickly build up a a wardrobe of things I want/ need... depending on my frame of mind. This week, besides a good pair of espadrilles I am dying to buy some nice underwear. It has been so long since I have splurged and bought myself a proper set. Sadly, money is still low. Saving for this Australia trip is driving me mad! But then I remember that in 4 weeks and 1 day (or 4 weeks and 19 hours, 25 minutes!) I will be boarding the plane and beginning my first big adventure!... Anyway. Back to lingerie. Before I go off on my travels I am going to get myself a nice, pretty set, you know, something to wear out in the evening and leave my boring, generic, white bra at home. For a bit of extra money, I will even cut out my weekly magazine trip (as I said, stabilising the fashion economy) and swap it for a good book.

At the moment I am loving some of K&Co's underwear. I love it because not only does it have straight sizes but also a great Plus Size Lingerie section. I like my blog posts to appeal to all my readers and having both plus size fashion bloggers and straight size fashion bloggers - I am hoping everyone will find some interest in it!? My three favourites at the moment are:







I love them because of the colours, the material and because they are soo pretty! Much more interesting than  plain. white. bras... 

Let me know what you think of the pictures above? and your opinion on lingerie? What's more important, comfort or style? Does a good fitting bra make all the difference? Where do you like to get your underwear from?



P.s Sorry about the lack of posts recently, I have been away on holiday with my family in Brittany, France - pictures to follow!

I like this, very true :) Style over comfort without a doubt haha. I like the second set in the pictures. It definitely makes a difference if it fits well, La Senza! And, surprisingly, Primark :)
