I never really give New Year’s resolutions, never the ones I can’t keep anyway. However, something I should get better at, and really need to, is buying more and better underwear so that will be my New Year’s resolution for 2016. This is something I always say I should do, ever time I buy a new bra, but I never continue to. Hopefully 2016 can change that!
I don’t understand why I happily spend £20 on clothes I don’t wear more often than once a month (if lucky) but think it’s too much to spend on underwear, which I wear daily. Sometimes it scares me that simple maths and logic like this doesn’t add up in my own head.
I know, why would you want to spend money on things no one will actually see? But realistically, if what’s underneath makes you feel sexy, strong or whatever other uplifting feeling, it doesn’t matter if people can actually see the underwear, they’ll see your confidence and how the rest of the clothes sit on your body, and that’s more important. When I wear the right underwear, I feel a lot better, less self conscious and more at ease.
Simply Be Underwear
Simply Be has a lot of nice underwear, for all different shapes and sizes. I’ve never bought underwear from them before but I’ve heard good things. They’ve also put together a simple guide on how underwear has changed over the years, too suit different usage. I like the idea of a a minimising bra (not always happy with my massive boobs) but my favourite is the Maidenform.
Here’s my new sets of underwear* to bring into the new year. I never buy white or nude underwear, mostly black, patterned or reed. I’ve heard that wearing red close to your heart makes you a warmer and more loving person… Black suits all clothing so it’s a safe bet and something I never get bored of, The patterned underwear set feels very romantic, and that’s what underwear is for, even if I’m the only one who gets to see it.
A little tip for you – unfortunately Simply Be’s bras aren’t true to size, I found them a bit too big for me. To be fair, that’s a good thing, I wouldn’t want it the other way around. The bottoms on the other hand suits perfectly.
How do you feel about buying underwear? Have you got any New Year’s Resolutions?
