I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up, I always felt that Sexy Lingerie wasn’t for me. It took me a while to learn that sexy lingerie is for everyone who wants to enjoy it!
I think a lot of this misconception stems from advice that we from our parents. Read on to discover the biggest lies we were told about lingerie!
- Lingerie is Frivolous
Underwear is practical, sensible and a necessity, but lingerie is frivolous. This is a huge lie, but it is one that I believed for the longest time!
I mean, sure…if it’s a choice between paying rent and buying a new corset, I’m going to pay my rent, but that doesn’t mean that lingerie is frivolous, or a waste of money. It makes me feel good. It makes me feel confident and happy in my own skin. I feel happy, settled and sexy when I wear it.
This is absolutely not a waste of money and I should not feel guilty for buying it. And neither should you!
- Lingerie isn’t for Good Girls
Oh, this is a huge one. Lingerie isn’t for good, upstanding women. I hate this one with a passion. You are allowed to be body positive, confident and sexy without being shamed. It doesn’t make you a bad girl: and even if it did, it doesn’t matter!
As long as you are keeping yourself and others safe, it doesn’t matter what you decide to do. It’s your body, your choice and you shouldn’t feel guilty for enjoying yourself. Lingerie is for everyone who wants to enjoy it, and no one can tell you otherwise.
- Needing Lingerie Means Your Relationship is failing.
If you have to rely on sexy lingerie, that must mean that your relationship is failing, right? Wrong! There is absolutely nothing wrong with spicing up your relationship a bit by wearing something pretty in the bedroom.
Its not shameful or wrong and it certainly doesn’t mean that your relationship is failing! Don’t believe what anyone else tells you. Your relationship can be healthy and happy, and you can enjoy looking beautiful for him.
Additionally, you can enjoy looking good for yourself. You don’t even have to be in a relationship to love lingerie. Enjoy what you love and embrace what makes you who you are. If that means wearing a silk corset, or a pretty matching set, go for it! You’re not failing, you are succeeding in more ways than you could possibly imagine. I promise you!
Were you told any of these things by your parents? Have you ever believed them, or are you in the process of overcoming them? Remember, lingerie is for everyone, and everyone deserves to feel good, feel sexy and enjoy themselves in their own, authentic way. Be proud of who you are and don’t believe the lies about sexy lingerie. You’re worth more than that!
