Over the past year, lingerie has become something I turn to when I am not feeling my best. It's almost like the right bra and panties are magic to me as they can totally change my entire mood. My whole life, I've turned to fashion as a way to boost my confidence, and I guess tapping lingerie to put me in a good mood is no different.

But that doesn't mean that any old bra or pair of panties can do the trick. There are some basic things that each piece of lingerie must have to make me feel my best! Let's start with this Mariela Unlined Wire Bra and bikini set in the color night shadow from Parfait Lingerie. This set has all of the characteristics I look for in a bikini and bra duo: it has sexy, lace peek-a-boos, the color is gorgeous, and the fit is impeccable. Comfort is another thing that I prioritize because I usually wear these pieces when I am lounging around and need a pick me up. If I ever have a day where I don't have plans, you can find me snuggled up in some cute, comfortable lingerie and robe binging my fave Netflix show or writing. Because I am usually the only one who sees my lingerie, I opt for subtle sexiness. There is no need for extra frills or anything too crazy. I like to keep it simple, yet gorgeous!

When I share this little life hack of mine, people ask, "Do you really lounge around in lingerie? That's the last thing I think about wearing when I want to be lazy or comfortable." And to that, I counter with, "How do you feel when you've been wearing baggy sweatpants and a sweatshirt all day?" Unproductive, lazy, dirty, gross...Does that seem familiar? I know that's exactly how I feel when I lay around in clothes that don't make me feel any better about myself. So I always tell people to just try it! Find some lingerie that makes you feel sexy and beautiful, and on your next Netflix and chill day, sport lingerie. I be you will notice your mood and presence change drastically! 

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 44 D, which is one cup size larger than my usual size, and it fits perfectly. I suggest sizing up one cup size for extra comfort and a better fit!
