#MicroblogMondays: Knickers!



My guests will arrive in an hour, and I still have to do some cooking and cleaning, but it is Monday, and my mind has gone blank for #MicroblogMondays ... so when in doubt, repost!

Those of us who go through loss, infertility, or end up living without children often end up feeling less like a woman, and decidedly unattractive. When I was going through my second ectopic, an internet friend suggested I go out and buy myself some sexy underwear. At the time, sexy was the last thing I felt like - it was feeling sexy that had caused all this trouble, after all!



But one day I did as she suggested, and although I might not have felt particularly sexy, I did feel

  • younger, more pert
  • more feminine (which was particularly important at the time)
  • more beautiful, and
  • a wee bit naughty.

Whatever size you are, whatever you might be doing, don’t underestimate the rejuvenating power of some new underwear, or a sexy new bra. They lift your spirits as well as those cheeks and boobs!

PS. Based on the comments I received first time around, feel free to replace underwear with shoes - they have similar beneficial results.

  1. This made me smile. Guilty of buying new shoes here! My DP always says he doesn't care for sexy stuff, and it has taken me a long time to realise that I still do, and it does make me feel different indeed.

  3. I can attest to the benefits of stepping out of your comfort zone in the undergarments department!

  5. I have been having a kind of blah last few days and this made me smile! It also made me think I need to go by some lingerie or shoes :)

  6. Grinning on this end. I love this advice! Though initially it seems strange, there is something about wearing lingerie.

  7. Or lipstick! A bit more obvious to to others, but still lifts the spirits!

  8. Very good suggestion! It is a way to express yourself and reconnect with yourself. It reminds you of who you are and how you see yourself in the world.

  9. I do love a new bra, but nothing really beats shoes for making me feel pretty.

  10. Oh, rock on! I second everything, especially the wee bit naughty part.

    As I was going through treatments I took an immature, obnoxious satisfaction in any way I could manage to feel and look sexy. What the heck, I still do. I feel I've earned very bit of it, for as unevolved and superficial as my adolescent gloating may be.

  11. For me, a new lipstick or lip gloss always does the trick. ;)
