Self Love & Lingerie - Our Top 5 Tips

Often now we hear about self love and the importance of it, here at Dream & Drive we're all about it - specifically when it comes to lingerie these absolutely go hand in hand (so to speak - hear us out okay). It's about embracing every curve, every flaw, and every aspect that makes you uniquely you. And while self-love can be practices of long baths, mindfulness and the like - honestly the act of wearing lingerie is no different. 

The kind of lingerie that promises
comfort and confidence? That’s
our style.

But self-love isn't just about how you look; it's about how you feel. And the right lingerie has the power to make you feel like the best version of yourself. Imagine yourself not having the best day, maybe things aren't going right, you woke up late, unorganised, you should have left the house 10 minutes ago - however stop for a moment what makes you feel better? Taking your best lingerie set out of your drawer (or if you've run out of room like us hanging in the wardrobe!), quickly putting together an outfit and out that door. Suddenly we're more 'put together' now underneath even the most unassuming outfit - you know the one - casual yet unremarkable. This put together feeling is a form of self love, we took care of ourselves in the moment when we aren't feeling at our peak. Because lingerie does that - elevates the confidence like no other. 

The act of choosing lingerie for yourself, and yourself alone, is an act of self-love in itself. It's a declaration that you are prioritising your own desires and pleasures, free from the influence of external expectations. It's about reclaiming ownership of your body and your sexuality, on your own terms.

In a world that often dictates how we should look and feel, embracing self-love through lingerie is a radical act of rebellion. It's about defying societal norms and embracing your authentic self, unapologetically and wholeheartedly. It's about recognising that your worth isn't defined by the size of your waist or the shape of your curves, but by the love and respect you have for yourself.

Or to put it simply here's all you need to remember...

  1. Pieces That Make You Feel Empowered: Select lingerie that resonates with your personal style and makes you feel confident and powerful. Whether it's a bold, strappy set or a soft, delicate lace ensemble, prioritise pieces that ignite your self-assurance and embrace your unique beauty.

  2. Celebrate Your Body: Embrace lingerie as a tool for celebrating your body in all its glory. Instead of focusing on perceived flaws, celebrate every curve, every scar, and every stretch mark as a testament to your journey. Choose lingerie that accentuates your favourite features and makes you feel comfortable and proud of the skin you're in.

  3. Prioritise Comfort: Self-love is about honouring your body and prioritising your comfort and well-being. Opt for lingerie that feels comfortable against your skin and allows you to move freely throughout your day. Choosing the right sizing is your best friend - remember if it isn't comfortable it's not the right size. Whether it's a bralette or a supportive yet breathable bodysuit, prioritise comfort without compromising on style. Latest collection is perfect for this one!

  4. Practice Mindful Dressing: Approach the act of choosing lingerie as a form of mindfulness. Take the time to connect with your body and your emotions, and choose pieces that align with how you want to feel. Whether you're seeking sensuality, playfulness, or empowerment, let your lingerie serve as a reflection of your innermost desires and intentions.

  5. Create Rituals of Self-Care: Incorporate lingerie into your self-care routine as a ritual of self-love. Set aside time to indulge in the process of selecting and wearing lingerie that makes you uplifted. Whether it's slipping into your favourite set before bed or wearing a special piece to boost your confidence for a night out, use lingerie as a tool for nurturing your relationship with yourself.

    Now slip into that lingerie and embrace that self love!
