Make Room for Lingerie that Loves You Back

We are pleased to have an article featured in this week's Valley Living section of the Comox Valley Record. You'll find our article, Make Room for Lingerie that Loves You Back on page eight.

An excerpt from the article:
In Feng Shui the closet represents secrets: the Manolo Blahnik fetish you’re hiding; the coat you paid way-too-much for and never wore; the muff made of real fur, even though you tell everyone it’s faux. And nowhere are there more secrets than in an underwear drawer.

We women do love to keep secrets. The two sanctuaries are the purse and the underwear drawer. No one dare go into either without an engraved invitation. Why all the secrecy around the skivvies? Well, it’s hard to say exactly, but in general, we don’t want people to know we’re living in the past...
Read the article to learn the three cardinal sins of the underwear drawer and how fixing them can make you look and feel more beautiful.

Felina Bridgette: Seamlessly Add-A-Cup

Many women are on the lookout for a new, sexy bra that will give their cleavage a lift and look great under their light and breezy t-shirts. The Felina Bridgette might be just what the summer ordered.

Available in this season's neutral colour, oyster, the Bridgette creates seamless lines without looking plain. In addition to the bows seen at the center and on the straps of the bra, there is gentle lacework on inner cup that is truly pretty.

The Bridgette is designed with the smaller-busted woman in mind. This Felina line is known as "Add-a-Cup" as it has built-in enhancement for cleavage and curves.

And to complete this feminine look, a matching Felina Bridgette low-rise thong is available. Both pieces contain floral spray lacework and ultra smooth microfiber.

How Do I Enhance My Curves?

We all want what we don't have. Women with a larger bosom want to minimize their bustlines while our clients with subtler curves are often looking for enhancement.

Some think the only way to manage this is with the number of a plastic surgeon, but before you put silicone into your breasts we recommend trying silicone outside your breasts with Flirt's cleavage enhancers.

When women think of adding to their bustline, awful foam padding or maybe even a tissue box comes to mind. Flirt is completely different. Flirt makes a supple, silicone pad that fits in the bottom of your bra cup, pushing your breast up creating dramatic curves and cleavage.

Flirt's breast enhancers are different because they mold to your body and heat to your body temperature. They are curved and tapered to blend seamlessly with your natural lines so no one outside your lingerie drawer need know why that plunging neckline looks so great.

Bring your date night outfit or your favorite t-shirt and try a pair to see if a good Flirt works for you.

How Do I Hide My Nipples?

Last week we talked about How to Avoid a Wardrobe Malfunction and this week we're continuing to answer your fashion questions: How Do I Hide My Nipples?

At Secret Drawers Lingerie we have daily proof breasts come in all shapes and sizes. This means each woman has a unique set of challenges when adorning her curves. And some women are very self-conscious about their nipples. Luckily, there's a very simple product designed just for such a concern - nipple covers.

The above are reusable, silicone nipple covers by Flirt. 

They couldn't be easier to use. Just place them over your nipples - they're self-adhesive. You can wear these nipple covers with or without a bra. They are perfect for anyone concerned about showing a bump under a sheer, thin or tight top. They are flesh-tone and virtually invisible.

To care, just wipe clean with a damp cloth. These nipple covers are good for 25 wearings.

Have a fashion quandary? Just come into Secret Drawers Lingerie in person or leave us a comment here. We're happy to help because we understand underwear matters.
