Why cage bras and daring lingerie is your hidden superhero power.
Turn back a few years and if you opened my lingerie drawer, you’d see a mountain of sports bras, beige bras and stuff that wouldn’t exactly turn heads.
For me, lingerie had two purposes – to cover and support your bits.
It didn’t help either that I wasn’t exactly happy with my chest. I didn’t feel feminine and I thought by having a breast augmentation, my thoughts on this would change. After my operation, I was back in boring beige bras. I now had a figure that by society was deemed ‘feminine’ – but I still didn’t feel it.
I browsed the department stores for sets that felt a little sexier. Yet half my battle was finding stuff in my size that I actually liked – the downside when you’re bigger than a DD cup. The shop assistants handed me stuff covered in pink bows when I said I wanted sexy, and although they fitted and looked good, they didn’t really make me feel how I wanted to feel – sexy & confident.
My opinion on lingerie really changed when I ended up buying my first cage bra and I noticed how I stood up a little taller, felt more confident and comfortable in myself. I loved how it made me feel. That was the gateway bra to buying more daring pieces like leather harnesses.
Although I wear lingerie for myself, it has become like a fashion statement that I allow to peek out to the world.
It was that moment that I noticed first-hand the effect that a great fitting lingerie set has on your confidence and your mood. You might be the only one who sees it, but great fitting lingerie is your hidden superhero power.
On days when I’m feeling like I could do with a little confidence and power, I’ll throw on a daring set. And although it isn’t about the other person seeing it, it’s about the power it gives you – that’s the power of a great fitting set of knickers!
We all grew up wanting to have some form of superhero power. Well, I’m here to tell you that a daring set of lingerie can be your power.
An excuse to go shopping perhaps?
