It seems absolutely crazy to me now but I never used to take any pride in my underwear. Up until last year, I was wearing completely the wrong sized bra with bra extenders in the back, they were countless years old, washed out and tinged grey, some with missing wires and I didn’t have any matching sets.
I never thought my body would look or feel great in underwear and I used to get myself down about it. I would wear undies because I felt I had to; it was a means of covering up so that I could then put my clothes on. Through the journey I’ve been on this past year, I’ve realised that’s not the case at all; my body is just as worthy as anyone else’s to feel good in lingerie.
Finding a better fit and style was key and had a huge impact on my confidence.
Now I love wearing gorgeous lingerie, especially matching sets and bikinis too. There are several gorgeous sets in my drawers and I have plenty of coordinating pieces in black, nude and actual white (…rather than washed out!) to wear as basics. I’ve even started dabbling in shape wear and have bought a babydoll recently too!
It feels so lush to take so much care over what I’m wearing underneath my clothes; it’s for me and me alone and gives me a little boost inside. It’s like my own secret when I’m out and about as no one else sees them under my clothes but they make a world of difference to how I feel about myself and that’s what truly matters!
The bra that I’m wearing in this post is the Daisy Lace Plunge Wired Bra from Simply Be which is available in sizes 34B to 48DD. I have it in three of the colourways; Navy/Rose, Blush (nude) and Peach/Pink and they’ve been really valuable to my underwear collection as I’ve worked to find my proper bra size.
The Daisy Plunge Bra is really comfortable to wear and gives the girls a great shape. It is lightly padded and underwired with a fabulously plunging front which enhances my cleavage and looks great under a range of tops from round and V necks to wrap tops that are a little more revealing.
The design is so pretty with the colour variation between the bra and the daisy pattern lace. Theres a cute little bow in the centre of the bra at the front on the breast bone and a picot edge trim which all adds to the girlie aesthetic of the bra. I just wish that there was a matching thong available as I don’t find that the coordinating shorts work for me; these pieces tend to roll down on my shape but nevertheless, the bras are so gorgeous and really really affordable too. I’d definitely recommend checking them out if you’re looking for a low cost, everyday bra!

How much care do you pay to your underwear? How does lingerie make you feel?
Beautiful selection of bras, I have so many black bras but I think soon I really need to get some other colours lol
Definitely, switching it up and adding a pop of colour is great and can make you feel happy and confident, yet only you know why! xxx
Oh I absolutely love your confidence – you look amazing! I struggle to find decent bras, these look lovely. Kaz
Thank you Kaz. I’d definitely recommend giving them a go. I know it can be a struggle but once you find the style and size that works for you, snap up the different colours xxx
I love some decent lingerie, it can really make or break an outfit even if you are the only one that's seeing it – it can just make you feel so much better. These pieces are absolutely gorgeous.
COMPLETELY AGREE!! It changes how you look in your clothes and how the outfit sits but it also boosts you from the inside too! xxx
I like that pink bra as it is really nice and bright
Oh its bright alright! Perfect for summer! xxx
These look lovely and so comfortable too! I was looking for some for myself and now I know where to get a few good pairs from…
Nice one Fatima! Give them a go, not badly priced either. I bought the strapless one from the same range before I went to Jamaica and that’s lush too xxx
When I was young, my mum always you tell me the importance of wearing matching lingerie, since then I have awlays taken pride in my lingerie drawers and what I wear. You’ve got some beautiful pieces here
Thank you Anosa. Its lovely to think about the little style tips we get from our parents! One of my besties only ever wears matching sets and she got me into it! xxx
You look radiant in the photos and I really love the black lace looking bra. Glad you found sometime that makes you feel wonderful and gives support.
Thanks Kirsty! Its so important to have underwear that makes you feel great but is supportive at the same time, best of both worlds xxx
Yes! Own it! I loved this post, you look gorgeous.
Thank you Abigail, what a lovely comment 🙂
I struggle with finding bra’s that fit nicely and as a larger lady, spend a fortune on them when I do find a comfy and pretty one
I know how you feel thats why I loved finding this one at such a bargain! Generally the more you pay the better the fit and quality but its not always the case. Definitely worth spending what you can when you find a style you love xxx
