We totally should. Because I know you probably wear one a lot of the time (assuming you are female). And everyone can generally appreciate nice lingerie in one way or another.
New Triumph lingerie I received the other day.
I don't know about you all, but I'm ridiculously picky about the kind of bra I wear. It has to be a very soft cup, no padding or moulding of any kind - as relaxed, natural and comfortable as possible. Basically anything that is flimsy and made of lace or mesh and I'm there. I tend to favor Stella McCartney when I can afford it - always particularly nice to be somewhat revealed under a low necked sweater or a loose camisole. And to be honest, I like boobs to look and feel like their natural state. Lonely by Lonely Hearts is also a great lingerie line for that soft, flimsy, natural look.
There is some irony in my preference towards flimsy, non-boosting underwear as it seems to be the opposite course of action to what is usually advertised to women (and men) when it comes to the ideal lingerie. Advertising and media usually repeat the mantra to make push your boobs skywards and pad as much as possible. However I've always found this uncomfortable and unnatural - not to mention hardly appealing under most types of clothes. And I can't stand the incessant obsessions with "SEXY" that Victoria's Secret pushes down everyones throats with their hoisted, padding, contoured and obvious facade of "perfect breasts".
The current Stella McCartney Lingerie campaign
I never thought much about my personal preference until I found myself sitting in a lingerie presentation by Triumph. I'd always taken for granted that I'm relatively small busted - and certainly unfamiliar with the need for extra support or indeed the desire to make anything look bigger than it already is. However seeing the excellent and vast range offered by Triumph it occurred to me that there are a wide variety of preferences and outcomes desired when it comes to the lingerie women buy themselves. Everything from sports bras to push ups to minimizers and t-shirt bras (and this is really all just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the underwear market) are on offer. Everyone obviously lives different lives but also has very different feelings about their own body and aims of how they wish to present themselves. All of which impact on a simple thing like the underwear you buy yourself.
Do you have a preference? Why do you buy the style you buy? Are you as fussy as I am? Do you prefer pushups and molded cups or are you a fan of flimsy nothings? And why?
