Ahh, Valentine’s Day. That special time of year when you either celebrate your undying love for another, or say ‘stuff this’ and gather up your friends for a little gal-entine’s party all of your own.
But whether you’re all loved-up or just loving the single life, this year Valentine’s Day is going to be a little different for all of us. Fancy restaurants and cool cocktail bars may be out of bounds, but that doesn’t mean we should forgo the day of love altogether. There’s still beautiful flowers, decadent chocolates and indulgent meals at home to enjoy (even if that’s a meal for one in front of Bridgerton).
So let’s make this Valentine’s Day all about pleasure… your own. And your indulgent day of self-care all starts with showing your body some extra love, by encasing it in a little flirtatious luxury.
No matter what your Facebook relationship status says, there’s nothing like well-fitting lingerie in sexy, supportive styles to make you feel empowered on Valentine’s Day. Not sure where to start? Just call on your style cupids. We’ve got all the key Valentine’s trends you need to really spoil yourself.
Black lace looks to lust after
Black is edgy, lace is feminine. Put the two together and you get a match made in lingerie heaven - and a look you can wear well beyond February 14.
Our Confession lingerie set of Padded Underwired Bra and Brazilian Brief has caged strapping and a delicate pink underlay that will help you celebrate your body in every way possible. Or give your black lace a bright colour pop with the cobalt blue of Sensation or the fiery red of Instinct.
Feeling playful? Valentine’s is a day of fun, so enjoy the teasing ties, peek-a-boo details and cute bows of the black lace All Tied Up Underwired Bra. Stay cheeky from top to toe by matching with the equally sassy All Tied Up Brief with its double tie motif to the rear.
Love all-black everything? Statement will be your new lingerie crush as it lets you hit three hot trends in one - mesh, strapping and lace. Want just a hint of black lace? The India Padded Demi Bra has a gorgeous scalloped lace edging that looks flirty peeking out under your clothes and although you could go for the matching Thong, it’ll literally go with every pair of black knickers you own!
Say it with red
Buying yourself red lingerie is a perfect way to celebrate your body this Valentine’s Day. Not just because it’s the colour of hearts and roses, but because it’s the shade we most associate with passion, strength and confidence - something Pour Moi babes have in abundance.
We dare you not to feel fierce in the Confession Bralette and matching Brazilian Brief. The red hot colour and sexy straps will bring out your inner temptress, while the soft lace showcases your feminine side. Want something with even more oomph up-top? The delicate Flora has luxe red lace and cute bows, but also comes with light padding so you’ll love what it does for your shape.
If you can’t be decadent on February 14, when can you be? Our Decadence set is a must for lovers of luxe lingerie. Supportive and sensual, it’s an extravagant mix of delicate lace and soft microfibre, with a black and scarlet colour contrast to help you undress to impress yourself.
But if traditional red lace really isn’t for you, we still have options. The soft cotton of the Logo Padded Bra and matching Briefs looks both sexy and understated. Or how about dipping your toe into the mesh trend? The India Front Fastening Bralette has luxe gold hardware, panelling details and a eye-watering deep plunge, all wrapped up in an on-point muted red shade.
Breathtaking basques and bodies
Two-piece lingerie sets always look stunning. But when you need an instant hit of body confidence there’s nothing like a basque or body. Curve-hugging, supportive and streamlining, you’ll love the way they make you feel. But you can also wear them with jeans or a mini for a daring going-out look made to be Instagrammed.
The Allure and Imagine basques and the Amour Body will give your look a hint of romantic red peeking out from under soft, feminine black lace. Or go for the Opulence Basque in black and slate grey. With its waist-cinching belt and side mesh panels, it gives an hourglass figure that’ll really take your breath away.
The strapping detail on the Statement basque looks stunning under a sheer blouse - although you may find it’s far too pretty to hide under your clothes. Or try the Rebel when you want to feel pretty in pink. The coral shade gives a fresh take on the body trend that’s perfect for spring.
Dressing up for the bedroom
When it comes to bedroom confidence, it’s what underneath that counts. You won’t feel empowered if you’re not comfortable and supported, so we’ve made sure even our sexiest styles are cut to fit and flatter.
Take All Wrapped Up, for example. Although its cheeky bow is designed to be playful, the set is still beautifully made in sumptuous satin, with an inner plunge boost pad that gives maximum cleavage.
And there’s nothing like the feeling of having some designer style in your sexiest pieces. High-shine PU material has been strutting its stuff down the fashion catwalks lately, and it’s something the Glow and Scandal lingerie set, plus the Scandal Basque and Scandal Cami Suspender dress have in abundance! All four are underwired too, to help you feel comfortable and uplifted.
Love the look of the Scandal Cami Suspender dress but want the non-PU version? Try the brand new Bling It On. The beautiful piece has edgy strapping across the bust, but be quick! This just-landed style is so fierce and figure-flattering it won’t hang around for long.
Sweet dreams were made of this
After a whole day of decadence, it’s time for bed. But what’s a girl to wear? We dare you not to feel vampish as Elizabeth Taylor in slinky satin chemise, but should you go for the cute pink and red Opulence, the sexy black and red Decadence or the fiery strapped red Sensation? They all have soft microfibre skirts designed to skim over your curves.
The slinky black satin of the Dusk Cami and Shorts was made for sensual snoozing, while the delicate criss-cross strapping gives a luxe lounging look, too. Want to feel like a movie star? The floor-sweeping Dusk Satin Maxi has an elegant side split and strapping detail that ramps the vintage Hollywood glamour up to 11.
Remember this year it’s all about you, so be your own Valentine and choose whatever makes you feel most fabulous!
