There are things in life that will never become obsolete, like receiving presents for your birthday, watching the sunset on a white sandy beach or having a large cup of coffee in the morning. Yes, I love all those. Just keep them coming. And yet, if you ask me, I would throw one sweet cherry on top of that list, just to show you how great it feels to be a woman: wearing lingerie, fine and sexy.
Lingerie is great, and wearing it is even greater. It can make you glow with confidence, and we all know self-confidence is one gracious weapon women hold. When should you have this weapon in hand? Well, let’s see…
1. At The Office
We’re all gorgeous women with high sensitivity to beauty, but we do have to work, don’t we ladies? And we all know what that means: insufferable bosses, impossible contracts and, sometimes, broken air conditioners. Sounds bad, and occasionally it is, but this is where lingerie comes in. Picture yourself in the conference room, responsible for mission impossible of getting that contract signed and things just don’t seem to go the right way. Now picture yourself wearing a silky lingerie underneath that office suit, a lingerie that embraces your shapes and makes you feel the most powerful and irresistible woman alive. Yep, I believe that contract signing shouldn’t feel that difficult now, don’t you?

2. At The Oscars
Sometimes, when work becomes such a drag, there’s a thought that makes you feel better: what will you be wearing to your next party? That party can be the Oscars, or a simple office party. It doesn’t really matter. We all have to look our best when the night falls because one can never be too prepared. So you will need to back yourself up with a stunning dress, dazzling shoes, some eye-catching jewelry, but most and foremost, a fine lingerie to build your beauty from inside out.

3. On A Romantic Date
Back on Earth, where the Academy Awards may be too far to reach, there is something that will never get old, and that is romance. Dating is great, butterflies in your stomach and everything. But the one thing that counts more than anything is that you look like the sexiest woman alive, which can only happen if you feel like the sexiest woman alive, which can only happen if you indulge yourself in fine and ravishing underwear. Your date will notice too, if you know what I mean.

4. For Your Boudoir Photo Shoot
Considering all of the above, where does a woman feel like queen bee? In the boudoir, and especially if you’re the model of your own boudoir photo shoot. Yes, fantastic fine lingerie is mandatory on this occasion.

5. On New Year’s Eve
The New Year’s Eve party. Think about it, one year ends, another is just starting. What best way to greet the rest of your life other than feeling powerful and confident in your most intimate secret, your newly bought satin bra and crazy sexy briefs?
If you’re getting married, here is one other indisputable reason why you should think in advance about the lingerie you’ll be wearing on your wedding night, and day. Because this will be the most remarkable day of your life. You’re the queen, you’re the princess, you’re the duchess, all in 1 day. So, you see, it goes without saying that you have to choose the finest of the finest lingerie out there.

7. On Your Birthday
Beauty doesn’t last forever? I beg to differ. As long as we have silk and lace and great designers to put them together, than beauty does last forever. It’s not in the looks, but it is in the attitude. So if you’re turning 30 something tomorrow and fear you’re growing old, which you are not, all you have to do is put on the sassiest lingerie set you own and have the greatest time of your life. That’s where the magic is.

8. For A Pajama Party
If you’re heading to a pajama party with your girlfriends, what says “sexy” better than a silky slip to slip into? It’s like returning to your innocence, only now you’re well aware of what being a red-blooded woman actually means.
Pregnancy is one tricky subject. What’s more beautiful than being pregnant? But then again, what is more non-beautiful than gaining weight and oversized feet? Those 9 months will bring some ups and some downs, but you know, you can make all the distress go away by putting on a nice lingerie especially designed for future mommies. It will make you feel so good about yourself, that all those mood swings may be easier to overcome.

10. When you’re in the mood for some relaxation by yourself
You know what? Today seems like a nice day to pamper ourselves with some spare time and a fine silk slip. Let’s dress up, pour ourselves a nice glass of wine and just feel how smooth it feels on our skin. It’s a worthwhile way of spending time on our own.
As you can see, the perfect day to wear your finest lingerie is every day. Keep that in mind tomorrow morning, before the toughest meeting of your life.
