Under It

Under It

Je crois que c’est Garance qui l’a le mieux exprimé : « En fin de compte, tout le monde se fiche que nos dessous soient plus fonctionnels que sexy. On le sait tous : les mecs se foutent de la lingerie qu’on porte. Ils nous aiment toutes nues !! »

Pourtant, au Studio, j’ai quand même senti quelques regards converger vers moi quand j’ai reconnu que je ne possédais pas une seule pièce de lingerie.

J’ai des visions de Belle de Jour, d’un univers un peu maso ou j’arborerais de la lingerie sexy (petite culotte et soutien-gorge en dentelle, bas couleur chair et porte-jarretelles) avec un sex-appeal digne de Catherine Deneuve pour séduire mon homme. BON C’EST PEUT-ETRE UN PEU EXTREME. Mais c’est vraiment comme ça que j’imagine les femmes qui portent de la lingerie.

Bref, j’ai décidé d’aller rendre visite à la petite soeur d’Agent Provocateur, L’Agent (on y va petit à petit, Brie) pour choisir ma première parure et faire un test. Genre la porter toute la journée et voir le résultat. Est-ce que le fait d’en porter allait me rendre plus sexy ? Plus coquine ? Est-ce que ça légitimerait enfin le fait que je porte (a) un soutien-gorge (oui, je n’ai pas la chance de G dans ce domaine, et en général je renonce à ladite brassière) et (b) toute la parure pour me convertir aux vertus de la lingerie, au-delà de leur pur pouvoir sexuel ?
… Je ne m’étais jamais sentie aussi proche de Mme Robinson. Les histoires de lingerie sont-elles finalement plus séduisantes que le fait d’en porter ? Je crois que la décision vous appartient… en toute discrétion ;)

  • Particulièrement pour les petits formats comme nous ;-), il y a pleins de solutions hyper confortables, de dentelles syper douces qui ne piquent pas et qui n’ont pas d’armatures solides mais qui font que nos mecs nous voient habillées/désabillées à la monica bellucci

  • I guess about ANY piece of clothing the main thing is: How does it make YOU feel?
    If you feel great your life is great.
    Such a cliche, but I think it’s true.

  • I only have one pair and I do also feel sometimes that maybe I should have more. Even like, sexier underwear in general! But just not high on my priority list right now lmao even with a boyfriend. Am I a bad person?!

  • My lingerie (and swimwear) world turned upside down after I was diagnosed with breast cancer and went thru mastectomy treatment. After that I had gone from being a customer that could get functional and beautiful products from many stores and shops, to not being able to find anything. I got so frustrated that I started from the hardest challenge I faced – swimwear.

    I hope that I don´t come a across to « marketing/promoting » but I hope that my passion for this project translates and hopefully brings joy to women in the same situation as I was. You can also read my own story about handling incurable form of breastcancer here: http://lullebiegga.com/it-all-began-with-breast-cancer/

  • It’s not true that men don’t care, my husband appreciates beautiful lingerie very highly. Then again he also loves me naked :) I myself feel better when dressed up underwearwise, even with casual clothes. Not necessarily sexier, but just more… beautiful, and delicate maybe?! However I do own two granny bras, which I wear too often since they are unfortunately the most comfortable :(

  • Sometimes I think underwear is more about what we want or feel .If underwear makes you feel sexy or confident you exude sexiness and confidence. I think you wear underwear to suit your mood or your day. A bit like the clothes you wear over the top!

  • Is it alright to disagree about the quote for once? Because whilst men can be rather primitive, they do appreciate the extra wrapping and the fantasy behind it. And as for me personally, I really do care about what lies beneath :) It’s like a secret I can only share with a special someone and also an element that makes me feel beautiful. :)
