As the saying goes………..
“Give a girl the right lingerie, and she can conquer the world”
And what better time to start ‘conquering the world’ these days….as a woman…..with the hint of Valentines Day around the corner…….it’s the perfect time to treat yourself (or let your partner do it) and add an extra bit of prettiness, sassiness, sexiness and feel-good-factor into your lingerie drawer. I’m of the thinking that……if I like my outfit…….I’m a nicer person (that day!) and I just feel good. Couple that with nice (preferably matching) underwear – and you’ve got me on a very good day!
As mentioned above ↑ Valentines Day ♥ is around the corner so I’ve teamed up with Dubai and Bahrain based ‘one-stop shop’ lingerie destination TKD (The Knicker Drawer) to bring you my top picks from their store for the most ‘romantic’ day of the year (every day should be romantic though….no? yes?). Reflecting back on my last blog post – see here – I promised myself 2018 I would only work with brands I truly believe in, respect and admire and TKD fits that bill 100%. I’ll be bringing you more insights from TKD over the next few months but to give you a quick synopsis – TKD is the first lingerie store in the UAE and the Kingdom of Bahrain exclusively for women with a bigger bust. They cater for sizes D to K from award winning designers including Freya, Panache, Curvy Kate and Cake and they believe that looking and feeling good starts with your underwear. This is something I strongly believe in too because good fitting underwear can make your clothes look and feel amazing. Quality underwear should be seen as investment but more on this later (upcoming blog post) including their renowned complimentary ‘bra fitting’ service which I’ve just had….and has changed the way I think about underwear going forward.
My Top Valentines Day (presents) Picks
Ok lets get straight into it with a chat about what I’m loving in the store right now. Top Tip: You may want to subtlety send the link of this blog post to your partner – you know – for some valuable ideas – sometimes our ‘other halves’ need a push in the right
(As seen in the flat-lay photo – top ↑ and up there as one of my fav’s). The Panache ‘Clara’ which comes in a taupe and black colour and a full cup bra, adds a touch of luxury to any outfit with a beautiful intricate lace detailing for ultimate day to night elegance. The effortlessly stylish full cup bra is made in 4 sections with a stretch lace top for comfortable support and an enhanced fit. Can I add, I’m also a big fan of ‘big granny knickers – think Bridget Jones’ but a more prettier, sexier and luxurious looking option…..like above!
Is it even Valentines Day if ‘red-sexy’ lingerie isn’t mentioned? This has a ‘cheeky bum’ feature which is not everyones cup of tea but….for those who like their lingerie bordering on the more sexier risqué side, this set is definitely worth checking out! I love the fit of the bra with the peek-a-boo feature.
This Scantilly ‘Peek-a-Boo’ set in red with a balcony bra is made up of a sultry, satin ensemble combining unapologetic cut-out’s with sophisticated styling. The ‘Peek-a-Boo’ range is designed for vivid imaginations with the provocative briefs making this perfect for hidden sins! This is one for all you ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ fans out there!!
Of course, there is so much to choose from in the store itself – it was hard to even narrow it down to the above picks to be honest. The choice and range of styles, colours (as well as swimwear and sports bras) is huge with something suiting everyone. If you do fancy treating yourself to something for Valentines Day – pop down to the store if you’re in Dubai in the Jumeirah Town Centre or even better – send the husband fully armed with this blog post and the TKD girls will be more than happy to help.
Also, FYI and very importantly, TKD is offering a ‘Buy 2 and get the 3rd FREE’ up until February the 14th – Valentines Day – so music to everyone’s ears especially the men in our lives!
Wanna know the importance of wearing the correct bra-size? Well watch this space for an up-coming in-depth chat into that very topic and how TKD offer probably the best ‘bra-fitting’ service in the UAE.
