From growing into your curves as an adolescent to keeping up with motherhood and beyond, your body is ever-evolving. And your lingerie should evolve with you, boosting your confidence when you need it, supporting you from within as you conquer your day.
Many of us look at our lingerie purely for day-to-day utility and shy away from certain styles and designs, considering them too risqué and indulgent for something that is worn under your clothes. We believe that your lingerie is deeply tethered to your emotions and confidence, and should pay more careful consideration in your sartorial choices.
We take a look at the reasons why you should pay more importance to your lingerie.
Lingerie in pop culture has a narrow definition. The image of a svelte lady in matching lacy inner wear is one of the first things many of us associate with lingerie. Here at Rawbought, we believe that lingerie should first and foremost be about comfort, which can look different to different people. It’s about how you feel when you put on that set of lingerie – and not just about the physical comfort i.e. the straps, wires and elastics. Do you feel empowered and confident? Does it give you a sense of peace and freedom? We believe that lingerie is not all about sexy lace and uncomfortable straps – it should be about feeling good and comfortable in your second skin. It’s important to explore your tastes in lingerie to find sets that speak to your soul, no matter the occasion or outfit.
As something that you wear every single day, your lingerie should be deeply in tune with your physical health. It’s important to wear lingerie that is well-constructed and provides adequate support. As it sits directly on your skin, you should ensure that your lingerie is made out of good quality materials that do not harm or irritate your skin.
Many of us are guilty of this – wearing old bras and underwear that do not fit anymore, either for sentimental or financial reasons, or just out of plain laziness. Too-tight bras can result in real pain in your neck and back muscles, and even causing breathing issues in the long-term. It is absolutely essential to wear bras that mould well to your chest, to avoid such pain and future health issues such as tissue damage.
“I don’t have anybody to buy and wear lingerie for”, “I’m too old for sexy lingerie” – sound familiar to you? These are excuses that some of us give ourselves for not investing in beautiful lingerie that don’t serve an immediate functional purpose in our daily lives.
You don’t have to have another person or a special occasion to wear cute lingerie, you should wear it for yourself! We often get carried away with devoting so much of our time and energy to our careers and home lives, and neglect to build and retain our own identity. Beautiful lingerie can be a way for you to boost your self-esteem from within, and celebrate your body and sensuality – for yourself, at whatever size and whatever age.
