There are many misconceptions surrounding lingerie and the purpose it should serve in our lives. While we have, for the most part, societally squashed the notion that lingerie is to be worn for someone other than yourself, many people are still on the fence when it comes to incorporating “fancier” lingerie into their everyday negligee drawer. The word fancy in relation to lingerie instantly makes me assume that wearing said pieces will make me uncomfortable, but that is actually not the case at all. Sometimes, “fancy” lingerie can simply mean choosing undergarments in a more intentional way versus digging through your drawer and grabbing the first thing that your hand touches. Don’t lie—we’re all guilty of that.
