(Anti?) Valentine’s Day the Linda the Bra Lady Way!

By Linda the Bra Lady on January 31st, 2012

So you’re not in love with the thought of Valentine’s Day? That’s ok! A lot of people use this cupid occasion to pump up the super sweet and sappy messages, eat those terrible candy hearts, or drown in their single status sorrow. But I’m here to tell you that not only is it ok to celebrate this V-day, but it’s more important to celebrate all year long. Here’s how:

Crush on yourself: Have you ever sent yourself a Valentine? Probably not. Most people think that it’s silly, or a waste of $0.44. Honestly, I think whether you have a significant other or not, you should take this time of year to remember the person who loves you the most: you. So why not DIY your own valentine? Or take yourself out for dinner? Or buy yourself a pretty little bra and panty set? (I’m especially keen on that last one, just so you know.) Don’t wait for someone else to read your mind. Pop into the shop and buy yourself those dozen roses and display them proudly at the office or at home, with a special note that reads: “I love you. Love, Me”.

Dress your best: I may not be a fan of wearing snowmen earrings at Christmas or heart socks around Valentine’s day, but I can’t resist wearing a sassy bra and panty set. If you’re not feeling the love this Valentine’s Day, nothing will make you look and feel like a goddess more than wearing a sexy and comfortable bra. I’m telling you, you will walk taller, look thinner, feel more attractive, take over the world! Ok, that last one is just based on my own personal experience but the other three are pretty spot on for all women who wear a great bra in the right size. Don’t keep that sexy bra stashed in the back of your bra drawer just in case Mr. Right comes along. Pull it out and wear it on a day when your spirits need lifting, or any darn day you feel like it!

Red and Pink and White, oh my! I don’t have anything against the colors red, pink or white in general. I think they are lovely! But who says that you have to wear these colors on Valentine’s Day? Not I. Personally, I love black lingerie. But if you like another color (blue? bright green? leopard?) go ahead and wear it. I’m a true believer that wearing what makes you feel good will help you look good. Besides, when it comes to lingerie, it can be your little secret! No one has to know that you have on bright purple undies… unless you decide to show them. Ow!

Start fresh: Sometimes we hold on to things for too long: a grudge, a boyfriend, a bra… you get the idea. So why not use February 14th to start fresh and let go of old things. Revamp that bra drawer and get rid of those old bras that don’t fit, don’t feel good, and are slowing you down. It will feel so thrilling to start fresh again with an organized drawer full of well-fitting bras. Uh-oh. Low on the well-fitting bras? Then treat yourself to a personal bra fitting! Pop into my shop or shop online for fantastic bras that will help you feel and look fantastic, too! Think there isn’t anything sexy in your size? Think again! I carry beautiful and well-fitting bras in every size imaginable. 

Dance around in your underwear: I’m dead serious. Put on your sexiest set or your favorite boyshorts and tank and pump up the volume! May I suggest something fun that makes you feel fabulous: “Young Hearts Run Free” by Candi Staton. You don’t need a partner to dance. Listen to this fun beat and the “self preservation” lyrics and have some fun!


Now, here’s a little secret: I think you should do these things throughout the whole year! That’s right. There’s no reason you can’t love yourself, dress your best, and have a good time – all the time. I think Valentine’s Day should just be a nice reminder if you’ve forgotten to do some of those things recently. So go on, live a little, and don’t let yet another Valentine’s Day drag you down to the dumps. Enjoy your Valentine’s Day the Linda the Bra Lady way!
