Buying New Lingerie is the Definition of Treating Yo' Self | Empress Mimi *


Buying lingerie, or in fact any kind of underwear, feels different to any other purchase. Leaving the store with a bag full of laced undergarments or colourful soft cotton pieces immediately lifts my mood. I consider these purchases 'self care'. They are purchases for me and no one else. There is something satisfying about buying something that no one else will ever see unless you want them to. When we buy a new top or coat or pair of jeans one of the first things we think to ourselves is "what will other people think of this?", our friends, our partners, our mums, etc. Although I don't condone looking good for anyone else but yourself, this is a rational thought to have as these clothes will be covering our skin and our armour against the world. Everyone will see them but with underwear it's different. It is going underneath this armoured exterior and only you will know what pair you're wearing that day, so when you pick out and buy new underwear it really is a purchase for you - the ultimate definition of treat yo' self.
