With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I just realized my lingerie drawer is long, long overdue for a makeover. The usual nude bras and everyday undies abound, but there's almost nothing in the way of sexy pieces that actually flatter. So I looked around for some intimates that are very Valentine's Day-in a good way.
Start off with something intended specifically for V-Day (and don't spend too much on it) with these Bow-Back Cheeky Panties ($16) from Victoria's Secret.
An all-out heart-covered bra ($30) that you can wear under sweaters year-round is a good compromise between Valentine's Day frivolity and practical lingerie spending.
For a sexy lingerie set you can wear every day, too, keep it simple, sexy, and still practical with designer lingerie by Elle Macpherson ($94 for the set). You'll wear the bra and panty separates under everything.
Too self-conscious to show it all off? This VS Silk Ruffle-Trim Babydoll ($42) is cute and flirty, but relatively covered-up.
