It’s almost time for that one day of the year when couples feel the pressure of ‘being romantic because someone said so (rumour has it Hallmark ‘invented’ it to sell more greeting cards..) and singletons either feel a) miserable because they haven’t got someone special to share chocolates and champagne with or b) put on their best ‘I really don’t care’ face and get on with their life.
Now for us Valentine’s is not so much about the ‘lovey dovey let’s show the rest of the world that we’re ever so in love’, but the fact that we can splurge on new investments for our lingerie collection. OK we do that whenever we feel like it – coupled up or not – but it’s always great to have an extra excuse for bringing out the plastics. We’re talking cards not PVC – though there’s nothing wrong with the latter…
Lingerie obsessed as we are, we’ve scoured the web to find some of the most delicate, seductive and darn cute underwear options available, so that you can drop hints or click buy in good time for Valentine’s Day. Happy shopping!
