15 lingerie items you should totally buy for yourself
It’s 2020, and we are no longer behind the idea that wearing lingerie is only for the pleasure of your partner. This year, we’re vowing to take back our sexuality, and that includes the clothing (or lack thereof) that makes us feel good. We believe that wearing sexy, silky lingerie is an empowering way to define our own femininity and boost our self-esteem when it comes to looking and feeling good in our bodies, and in our skin. It’s a form of self-love that shows we’re worthy of being and feeling sexy, with or without a partner.
Even if you’re the only one who will see these pieces from the best lingerie brands, we challenge you to treat yourself, do some self-exploration, and see how the pieces make you feel. Take some time to admire and get to know your body and treat yourself to cozy cotton nightgowns, fierce bodysuits, and lace teddies. Find a piece that speaks to you and your style—you deserve it.
Now excuse us while we slip into something a little more comfortable…
