5 playful lingerie picks for Valentines Day


Whilst the love of your life (or someone of that sort) is busy sweating it out over how to impress you on Valentine’s Day this year, you too can do a little prep work. Investing in good quality lingerie is a must at any time of the year, but the effects of good underwear go a long way come February 14.

London-based lingerie brand, Playful Promises, offers an array of fabulous-but-flirty options to choose from, ensuring your underwear is more glam than gran!

Brainchild of lingerie designer Emma Parker, who set about establishing Playful Promises in 2004; this ‘dream dress up boudoir’ offers more than just the expected corset, bras and panties. Expect to find everything from luxe satin waspies mingling with dainty, retro-inspired bodysuits to fingerless latex gloves and naughty-but-nice fascinators perfect for a bedroom party…!

Keeping it playful (well, the clue’s in the name) and pretty all at once, here are our top 5 picks to snap up for Valentine’s Day:


Dominique bra:  the perfect mix of fantasy meets femme fatale, we love the sumptuous black satin and saucy strap detailing. A sure-fire Valentine winner!


 Bound Cupped Corset: black and nude satin fashioned with whisker-like chunky cord straps almost give this piece a feline quality. P(urr)fect for the sexy cat woman who doesn’t fancy a Halle Berry-esque getup.


Beauty Queen Pin Up Briefs: the ribbon tie detail and sugary pink hue make these briefs in a tin featuring a cute, hand drawn illustration pin up perfection. Not just for Valentines Day, but you can collect one for every month of the year.


Absinthe Green Eyelash Lace Bra and Briefs: prim-yet-playful; we love the unusual green backdrop, adorned to perfection with black eyelash lace. Perfect for V Day or as a special addition to your bulging ‘fancy’ underwear collection!


Ghost Retro Bodysuit: this piece exudes sensuous, retro glamour. The ultimate boudoir wear item, we love the soft lilac colour and dreamy cherry blossom print. A must-add to every discerning lingerie lovers wardrobe.
