It happens every year, red roses, giant teddy bears, and assortments of chocolates pop up at all of your favorite stores. And all of a sudden, you are starting to see more ads for jewelry companies than you ever have in your life. You’re either super hyped for this holiday, or you’re dreading it (is there even such a thing as an in-between feeling?) Yep, I’m talking about Valentine’s Day.
When I sat down to write this post, I began thinking about how little the holiday means to me now, as an adult. When I was younger, there was all this anticipation of finding out who your valentine would be and what they would surprise you with—or the opposite: Planning how you would spend the dreaded day without a valentine. However, upon reflection, I think the holiday actually has a greater meaning to me today than it has in the past. What a 180°…am I right?
Valentine’s Day falls under one of those holidays—like my birthday—where I feel like I can unapologetically indulge in myself—and sadly, that’s only two days out of the year. I’ve usually always had a valentine, but the holiday often has me in a constant shoulder shrug.
So, I’ve decided to turn up the heat this Valentine’s day—SOLO. One of my self-love routines includes dressing up in this Parfait Lingerie Marion Hipster Panty and Unlined Wire Bra in Tango Red when I’m home for no reason other than to feel like a goddess (scroll down). And some days, I’ll slip on a sexy bra or panties under my outfit for a confidence boost. My go-to power moves set is the Marion Hipster Panty and Contour Padded Bra in Lapis Blue. You’d be surprised at how wearing sexy lingerie under your everyday outfit gives you an edge and instant confidence surge. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself!
I was first introduced to Parfait lingerie in November, and I have since fallen in love with the brand because of its inclusivity and sexy styles. Dedicated to fit and innovative styling, Parfait collections are designed in both fit and silhouette to elegantly embrace and enhance the body, from petite to full figure. Styles range from bra and brief sets to babydolls, available in sizing from 30-44 bands, A-K cups, and XS-4XL bottoms. I’m proud to be a part of their most recent campaign, showcasing diversity and promoting feeling sexy in any body!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 42 C in both the Marion Unlined Wire Bra and the Contour Padded Bra, which is my usual size, and they fit perfectly. If you like your bras to have a little bit of a looser fit, I would suggest sizing one or two sizes up on the band size. I am wearing a 2x in both of the Marion Hipster Panties, which is my usual size, and they fit perfectly. Again, if you like a looser fit, I would suggest sizing up one size.
