Well, the big Kiss Me Deadly lingerie giveaway is over, and I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting not only this blog but my sponsor with your incredible comments, retweets, and follows! This might surprise you, but I only host giveaways for lingerie brands that I really and truly love. Most of the offers I get in my inbox are rejected because the quality simply isn’t up to standard. Kiss Me Deadly is a brand I’m passionate about, and I know that whoever wins this giveaway will absolutely fall in love with their prizes.
A week ago, I featured some of my favorite entries, and I’d like to do the same right now. I love hearing about why you all love lingerie; a big part of why I started writing this blog was to connect to fellow addicts after all! If don’t feel like the comments section was quite long enough to express your lingerie love, why not e-mail me to talk about writing a guest post? I’m really excited about featuring other perspectives on lingerie in the upcoming months.
Enough of my babbling…let’s look at a few more of my fave contest entries. Do any of these really speak to you? Let me know in the comments!
“Growing up in my household, lingerie was dirty. Panties in a bag and Wal-mart bra in a box was all you needed. Then a friend of mine got me a La Huit bra and panty set for a birthday. Oh My God. Now I love lingerie. I love the way it doesn’t hide my body it accentuates it in the best ways humanly possible. I’m not pudgy or dopey, I’m voluptuous and sexy and delicious. If I’m wearing good lingerie, it doesn’t matter if I’m in sweats and sneakers, I walk like I’m in a curve loving dress and 4 inch stilettos. My shoulders are back, my breasts and butt look fantastic, and I will be the first to admit I am completely, and totally full of myself.
Every once in awhile I need that, and lingerie is there to give it to me.”
From Bra Queen:
“I LOVE lingerie because it’s a small thing you can do to make you feel a million dollars. It puts pepper in your step, even if you’re doing the housework it still makes you feel great.”
From Sweet Sue:
“I love how lingerie makes me feel like an old time movie star. I always feel like smoking a cigarette and talking in a throaty voice when I wear it.”
“I love lingerie because of how it has helped me embrace myself just the way I am. I have a very pear-shaped figure, with an A cup bust but 38 inch hips. Not exactly the image you see in lingerie ads.(almost the exact opposite, in fact :) ) For a long, long time I thought there was something wrong with me, that my body was disproportionate. Buying beautiful, sexy lingerie is a way for me to claim my beauty and not let my self-worth be dictated to me by advertising that says I should be wearing a push-up bra and pretending to have a body that I don’t. Or worse, languishing in functional, asensual underwear because somehow I don’t deserve to wear sexy pretties because my body isn’t the ideal.I choose to own a drawer full of lacy bras and boyshorts that flatter my figure and make me feel beautiful. It reminds me that I am just as sexy and beautiful as a woman with more bust or less butt than I have. That my body is the way it is supposed to be, and ought to be celebrated. Lingerie is a celebration of being me, everyday. That’s why I love lingerie.”
“What I love about lingerie is the confidence and the self-control. It is like a secret that only you know. It gives you that extra boost of strength to face the world while others just stare, wondering why you look extra special.”
“I love knowing that underneath my dress I have on something so pretty and sexy that only the privileged get to see. I enjoy the look of surprise and that smile when the dress comes off. I also love the way 100% non-stretch nylon stockings feel on my legs.”
“I love *everything* about lingerie: the texture, the colors, the powerful way I feel inside when wearing the perfect ensemble! I even like the way it looks in the drawer, and I love to arrange my collection. Lingerie is the best part of being a woman as far as I’m concerned!”
“I have such a love for the past, especially the romanticized image of the pin-ups from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. I absolutely love “complicated” lingerie inspired by these eras, so it’s my way of connecting to that image. Or should I have just said I love the beauty of it? :)”
From Tethered Mommy:
“I love just knowing that I took a little extra time to look special FOR MYSELF. Lingerie is like a little indulgence for ourselves.”
“I love how it gives me a little extra something to smile about. Even if I am wearing jeans and a tshirt, knowing I have something cute and lacy on underneath just makes me happy, and feel a little sexier.”
“I love lingerie because it makes me feel sexy and allows me to express my personality in a way that I can’t always with outerwear. I love that it is just for me, to make me feel special…unless I choose to share it with someone and then their reaction makes it feel even more special.”
From Michelle S.:
“Life’s craziness may not always make us “feel” beautiful, but lingerie does. I love the look of surprise on Hub’s face when he finds that I have on a little special something..”
“I don’t have any nice lingerie most of the time, so I guess what I love about it is that is so special to me, it’s a luxury for me to own something so extravagant.”
“I like wearing a secret. I love all the fiddly little snaps and straps and such, too. It’s like getting dressed up for a very scandalous battle! Weird, but true. It really makes me more aware of myself than regular underthings, and that can be a helpful distraction on occassion.”
“I like lingerie because it makes me feel like I am somebody else – which is fun and exciting, because I’m normally a very modest person.”
From Food According to Karen:
“I love how sexy lingerie feels under my clothing. When I wear something decadent, I feel confident, erotic and oh so bad. When I tell hubby exactly what I have on under my clothing, watching his reaction is fabulous for the ego.”
“I love lingerie because it is the most exhilarating thing you can put on. It’s seemingly simple, but actually oh so complex. The way the right lingerie feels on your skin is almost indescribable. Sometimes cool and smooth like water, or warm and soft like you’re glowing. Most importantly it’s the way it makes you feel; sexy, sensual, feminine, mysterious, even a bit dangerous; an overall confidence in me. As much as my man loves the sight (or even thought!) of me in lingerie, it does much, much, more for me!”
“I love how put-together lingerie makes me feel. Even if I feel like my outfit is stylish and interesting, lingerie just makes it better. I feel like I’m fashionable on every level when I wear great lingerie! It’s a little secret boost to my confidence whenever I wear an especially nice piece. :)”
“I love lingerie because of the way it can take an ordinary woman, and transform her into a goddess. The peek of a garter top, the feel of the nylon on her legs, a sexy négligée, hiding as much as it reveals… Yea. Its not just for women.”
