Putting on your underwear is an integral part of every woman’s day (dare I say women’s greatest commonality even?!) It’s an act of pure necessity that is, on occasion, done with someone else in mind. Yes, the latter referencing those moments when as women, we contemplate strapping on a garter, which by all means is terribly sexy for every participant involved, or some other lacey, under-wired and generally uncomfortable contraption in hopes of feeling and looking as enticing as I imagine a 1920s cabaret singer to have been.
But there is something to be said about simplicity and dressing for yourself, as is evident by today’s images featuring Lexie, a baker by trade and one of my ultimate girl crushes.
Within the confines of our studio, there are very few underwires. Those of us with the luxury of not needing a lot of support often find ourselves partial to the bralettes and the soft, second skin ensembles. We are naturally drawn to a type of comfort and simplicity that doesn’t compromise on sexy femininity.
Ultimately, confidence in one’s self is the sexiest anecdote of them all. I’m constantly reminded of the scene in Eyes Wide Shut where Nicole Kidman is seen wearing a simple white tank and underwear, thinking, “that’s exactly it.” Playful. Sensual. And totally comfortable in every way possible.
Whether you are in a relationship or not, the idea that lingerie is only one thing and for one reason, well that idea just won’t hold any longer. Beautifully made cotton lingerie never looked better.
