Cupid Pull Back Your Clothes: Lingerie for Valentine's Day!

Looking for the best way to add a little sugar and spice and everything nice to your Valentine’s Day? How about picking up one of Jenna Leigh’s gold satin balconette bras with matching panty and lace trim? Or perhaps a satin red and white polka dot bra and panty set from Agent Provocateur tickles your fancy? Dean Martin may sing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” but lingerie looks from Chantelle, D&G and La Perla will keep you warm on the day of love.

Amazing Lace
Romantic and feminine looks are ideal for the sweetheart in all of us. For this Valentine’s Day try pastels such as sheer pinks and nudes seen on bras and panties by Calvin Klein who has you covered under cover with the Perfectly Fit Bra and coordinating panties. For a dash of soft colour, try this peachy keen bra by Agent Provocateur. Its demi cup adds an extra lift to your breasts while the ornate lace trim is equal parts sweet and sexy. Channeling the Baroque period, a French lace kimono by Agent Provocateur epitomizes sensual elegance with its creamy white colour and satin belted sash.

Will you be my Valentine?
February 14 is the day of love and passion and if you are looking for something with an extra punch for that special evening out (or in! wink, wink), then you must try Agent Provocateur’s red love basque. Made of French Leavers lace, it features a demi cup and satin straps all together creating a look that screams muy caliente! Not feeling red? Young lingerie designer Jenna Leigh has designed a blue silk trimmed lace triangle bra and matching mini skirt with a garter that provides a sexy alternative. In true D&G style, animal prints can be found all over their assortment of baby doll dresses and smooth satin bras and panties, a sure way to unleash your inner sex kitten. Meow!

Borrow from the Boys
So who is purchasing these frilly, ruffle-y things any way? According to Aimée Finlay owner and manager of Beestung Lingerie De Femme, located in Toronto, 80% of lingerie shoppers are male. That’s not surprising considering the masculine meets feminine looks appearing on our intimates. Take for example La Perla’s Black label bustier with panels made of a silky check print and leavers lace adding a peek a boo of what’s underneath. Chantelle has a lovely collection of looks including a sheer nude capelet worn over a black trim sheer pink bra and panty accompanied by a mysterious masquerade mask evoking your inner Parisienne.
