With so many things continually changing and not being able to control any of it, the things you can control is how you view yourself - body, mind and soul. With women becoming increasingly celebrated in all areas of society, many females are embracing the best self-esteem and self-love possible. This Christmas giving yourself and other female friends and family members, special pampering presents is more important than ever because we’ve all made it through 2020. But how exactly does buying yourself gorgeous lingerie make you feel good about yourself?
Exquisite lingerie makes you feel good inside and out
Getting into the mindset, this Christmas and other Yuletides moving forwards, of including yourself on your present agenda is the way to go. While this special holiday is about being with, and giving to your loved ones, remembering yourself should also be non-negotiable. No one is saying to buy yourself an expensive car, but to wrap up a few sets of your favourite lovely lingerie is the best act of self-love.
Popular lingerie blogger Morning Madonna, in one of her reviews, talks about engaging with the idea of wearing beautiful lingerie as an act of self-love and not purely sex. Another well-known blogger, Lingerie Raven, describes how wearing the right lingerie makes her feel excited and full of life and energy. For Lingerie Raven well designed underwear makes her feel uplifted and playful. A writer on top lingerie blog, The Lingerie Addict, uses these words when describing how lingerie makes them feel: ‘there’s something uniquely gratifying and self-awareness raising about navigating your way through the difficulties of actualizing self-identity while wearing a hand-crafted, custom-made bra and panty set. The empowerment derived from the silk ribbons…’ Basically, wherever you read about lingerie on the net, the messages of self-love and empowerment are coming out loud and clear.
Many modern brands including our own Dear Eve Lingerie are also choosing to go with the bold message of ‘empowerment’ by displaying their collections on their websites and look books with stunningly styled photographs of females wearing the pieces for nothing more than pure self-enjoyment. Owner of the gorgeous brand, Kathy Jia likes to convey ‘self-love’ by styling her model shoots as freshly and naturally as possible. She conveys the feeling of lingerie empowering women by using imagery showing movement. Her models look happy, open and carefree, either dancing or relaxing in her collections. Simply looking at the Dear Eve website makes you want to buy the lingerie because the images are relatable and sincere.
