SimonePérѐlebodysuit

Is it crazy that I want to run around the house in this? 

It's almost the perfect time of year to reach for your lingerie. No one will expect it. Besides, with the weather changing, muggy mixed with cooler temps makes it manageable. How easy would it be to throw a cashmere wrap around this anyway?

Loving this Simone Pérèle bodysuit. Curve-hugging, devastatingly sexy and easy to wear, this deco graphic embroidery on sheer tulle creates a tattoo-like effect. You can even wear this under a blouse.  

You don't have to wait for a special occasion to wear gorgeous lingerie. In fact, it's even better worn on an ordinary day.

After all, it's how it makes you feel. 

 

Go ahead, call me obsessed. It's for good reason.

Every year, I seek out new lingerie designers in hopes to achieve both form and functionality. However, it is so difficult to find a good fitting bra. Why? It seems like it should be a snap, but it's not. I measure less than 30 inches around my rib cage, which makes my brand selection limited. Especially, due to my cup size. I am not saying I am huge (because I'm not). However, when you factor in the combination, it's a challenge.

Until I met Simone Pérèle.

Well, not the designer herself. The brand.

Madame Simone Pérèle, an expert corset maker in Paris, had a vision to liberate women and design lingerie that embraced a woman’s natural shape. She quickly gained a reputation for breaking tradition, creating lingerie dedicated to women’s desire to look beautiful, yet also feel comfortable. Passion and precision combined, she achieve her ultimate goal — superior fit, ultimate comfort and sophisticated styling. Since 1948, the Simone Pérèle brand has created a cult following. And I am definitely on board.

My favorites — Caressence 3D Plunge for the breathable 3D spacer fabric and Aloe Vera-infused lace and the Inspiration Memory Foam.

Why did it take me so long to discover this fabulous brand? Hmmm, maybe because it's not offered in the usual places. Now that I know my size, I can order away online. And I will.

For some reason, my rib cage keeps shrinking. You'd think that would be a great thing. However, as a result, my legs and rear are paying for it visually. I decided it was time to pick up a few new bras. And in my search, this Natori Feathers Contour Bra was so fabulous, I bought it in black and nude. I might just add a few colors, too. This beautiful bra is surprisingly flattering, comfortable, sexy and practical.

dgbraletteIf I could fit into this, I would so wear this bra. All. The. Time.

It's beautiful. Feminine. And I would show it off. At least around the house.

This lightweight chiffon and lace soft-cup bra is as lovely as underwear as it is as outerwear. It would look great with these knickers, too!

Girly goodness.
