Bows, ruffles and hearts! I think this lingerie look, inspired by Bettie Page, is perfect for Valentine’s Day. But, you know, in a classy way. Not an “I-barely-escaped-an-explosion-in-a-ruffle-factory” way.
This striking satin Miss La La brief takes its inspiration from heart shaped chocolate boxes and it speaks of old school Hollywood glamour.
I’ve seen a lot of cute ruffley pin-up girl lingerie but this is the sexiest! Why? Because those aren’t ruffles on the high-waisted panties. I’m just not a fan of those. They make your butt look bigger and who needs that!? Under clothes, you look like you’re wearing a diaper, even if it’s a loose-fitting skirt. The frilly ruching on these panties is done in a much more modern way. High-waisted heart briefs: Miss La La Boite Du Chocolat Deep Pleated Brief. Available at Amazon
I do like flirty ruffles on bras because your bust will always look more voluminous.
But for those who aren’t into the ruffle cup bras, like this one (pictured left) by Miss Courtesan, there’s also the matching Miss La La Boite Du Chocolat retro padded bra. It’s actually pleated by hand in sultry red Italian satin. The moulded underwired cups of the bra are satin lined in contrasting baby pink like the wings. Also found on Amazon
