Seven deadly lingerie sins


Here’s a list of lingerie sins you should never commit:

1. Lust

Thinking that if you buy that 32B the gorgeous model in the glossy magazine is wearing because owning that bra is going to make you look just like her… think again sweetie. If you have big breasts you are going to need a supportive bra. Be practical.

Own those babies. They’ll look better in a bra that fits properly rather than one that makes all the extra bits bulge out the sides.

2. Pride

So you used to be a size 8. Congrats to you! Unfortunately for all of us, we grow, have babies, put on weight, breastfeed, retain water and on and on.

If you manage to stay a size 8 your entire life, you should donate your body to science when you die or you could go for a professional bra fitting and get something that actually fits.

The same applies to panties. Buy the right size. Your breasts and bum will benefit and so will your self-image.

3. Sloth

You’ve taken the time to invest in good quality lingerie, now take the time to take care of it. Hand-wash. No dryer. No wringing. Three simple rules and your lingerie will last longer and fit better.

If you want to take it even further, you can get special detergent and cotton hosiery gloves to use while washing. The difference is remarkable.

4. Envy

Coveting thy girlfriend’s negligee (and figure underneath it). Let it go! There is something out there for you that will look stunning! Anyway, it’s all about the attitude.

So find something that fits you comfortably and brings out your Sex Goddess. There are so many choices out there, just look and you shall find.

5. Gluttony

Buying anything and everything…especially if it’s on sale. All together now…it’s not a deal if you never wear it. I don’t care if you retrieved that bra out of the R25 bin at Mr. Price.

If it tears up after 2 hours and leaves bruises on your ribcage, then you wasted your money.

6. Wrath

Hating on other people’s lingerie. So you can’t understand how anyone can wear a camisole. You are solely a bra and panties gal.

That’s no reason to go bad-mouthing the more adventurous lingerie wearer out there. And for all the folks who think they’re getting away with something because they’re “anonymous”…an anonymous a** is still an a**.

7. Greed

Buying outside of your budget even if you’re using your credit at Foschini’s to do it.

Yes, it all looks so pretty and you just know that those hand embroidered panties are going to make your bum look fantastic, but it’s just marketing.

Resist temptation. Set your lingerie budget and stick to it or your man won’t be as chuffed as you’d hoped he’d be when he see’s the bill at the end of the month.
