It's what's underneath that counts

1      //      2      //      3      //      4      //      5      //      6      //      7      //      8      //      9      //      10      //      11

First of all, it's technically supposed to be spring, so you expect sun shining; baby lambs being born; chicks hatching, all that jazz, but instead we are buried under snow, wind and rain. This weekend, is going to be spent in my bed, hiding under my blankets!

Okay, onto this post. When, I'm down (and since the weathers bringing me down) I turn to two things, one of them is lipstick, the other is lingerie. Most women, buy shoes...I buy bras. I think it's completely important for a woman to have good underwear, especially bras and since I have a big chest (34E, if you're interested) I need to invest in good good bras. Above are a few that I'm currently coveting  I find for bigger chests, the DD+  section at Wonderbra and Gossard are brilliant. You should constantly be updating your bras to ensure they're giving you enjoy lift and to keep the colour of the material in tact. I love splurging on underwear as it gives me that little bit of luxury and lets me feel good about myself.

What is your "down day" purchase and are you a lingerie fiend like me?

  1. number 9 is so so pretty! I often find it hard bra shopping for my size as they're all ugly plain colours but this post has proved me wrong!

  5. My "down day" purchases are sneakers ;D
    Lovely selection! My faves are nº4 and nº8 :)
    Unfortunately I've heard that the "GFC" is shutting down and will no longer be available after July 1st.... it's really sad :(
    You can read about it "HERE"
    Just in case, it's better you add the "Google+ Followers" gadget! I already did it! It’s on my left side bar! I like "bloglovin" and I have it, but I hate not knowing (and seeing) "who" is following me, so... for me the most important is the GFC and now the "G+ followers" ;)
    So as we are following each other on GFC for some time, I'm now following you on "bloglovin (#221) and "G+", and I'd be very happy if you follow me back on both places too<3
    Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you have a fabulous weekend and a happy spring filled with joy, flowers and sunshine<3<3

  17. I buy a RIDICULOUS amount of underwear, I could spend so much more as well if I had the money. Its mainly bras I enjoy buying, but then because my knickers have to match then I am obliged to buy them too! Even though no one sees my underwear throughout the day I still love wearing it, its just so pretty I genuinely wish it was socially acceptable to wear underwear on the outside of your clothes!!

  21. I love number 3! My down day purchase is definitely lingerie as well, and maybe a red lipstick - I love wearing nice lingerie even if no one else will see it, and I totally get what you mean - I'm a 30G chest wise at my last measuring and it's so difficult to get properly fitting bras - especially ones that don't look like old lady bras! So happy more companies are getting on the bandwaggon and introducing a range of sizes.

  22. I really love numbers 3 and 9. Unfortunately I'm a 36D so most cute bras don't come in my size! Its so nice to see cute bras for us girls with big chests! This is such a unique post! Great job! I'm so glad you commented on my blog. I like when I find the "diamond in the rough" blogs like yours!

  27. I know what you mean, I was a bit scared with the Chanel bronzed at first but it worked fine and I love it (I'm wearing it in this video). It does take a bit of time to get used to the product and know how to apply it, I would never use my fingers with it because It doesn't blend but something like the buffing brush works great. I first use a little bit and build it up because it can look orangey. Also it depends on your skin tone I think? Might not suit everyone. The thing is I haven't found a good highstreet cream bronzer! Have you?

  33. I love your selections, I would feel like a princess wearing them seeing how beautiful they are. This spring is seriously a fraud, tomorrow I will have -2ºc... so I haven't found something to make me feel better about it, I was thinking of stockings, but I'm not in the mood for skirts in this weather. Maybe scarves.. Great post ;)

  40. I love getting good, cute new lingerie. The problem is that it can be really expensive so I don't really buy it too often. I've just recently understood the importance of a good bra though, which was about time. lol
