5 Tips for Buying Lingerie with Confidence:
MAKE SURE IT FITS YOU NOW: Are you supported and comfortable? Is it the proper size for your body right now?
GO WITH WHAT FEELS GOOD: How does it feel when you have it on? Does it restrict or feel tight or loose? How does the fabric feel on your skin? Does it let you breathe & move?
SHOP FOR LONGEVITY & PURPOSE: Is this piece serving a purpose or would it be a repeat of something you already own? Is it a piece that can be worn to different occasions, or are you buying it for a specific event? Think about where it fits into your wardrobe.
GO FOR WHAT COMPLIMENTS YOUR STYLE: How does the piece go with the clothes & lingerie already in your closet? Consider how you it will fit in with what you already wear & what outfits you can wear it with.
SET AN INTENTION: How do you want to feel when you wear it? Let the piece be a reminder of that feeling every time you put it on.
