Every now and again, I like to write something both informative and fun for my readers! Today is one of those days….I thought in honor of Valentine’s Day, I would share a few sexy, groovy lingerie items! If you are new to Back’ngroovemom, you are probably asking “why?” Well – the short and skinny is that Back’ngroovemom was born out of my mompreneurial adventure playing with bras. I am developing a braduct (bra-related product) for release sometime soon. I loved at the end of 2010 when CNBC reported lingerie being one of the top items women are splurging on as we come out of recession. Woo hoo!
Sooooo, I know that many of you women will want to check this Valentine’s lingerie preview out! This week, I spent some time at Cheeks Boutique doing some investigating for you. Cheeks is a little hidden treasure located on Walnut Street in Shadyside, PA. It is a local boutique, and personally one of my favorites! Cheeks carries many unique lingerie items including bras, panties, nighties, fabulous pj’s & robes, lounge wear, sexy socks, and tights. Even my good friend from CALIFORNIA likes to check out Cheeks when she is in town!
Ilene Levy, owner of Cheeks, has been selling bras since 1997. She and I chatted for a bit about one of my favorite subjects – BRAS! Ilene confirmed that the trend in bras is the molded cup. For teenagers and on up, women are wearing the molded cup. Ilene dispelled some myths about the molded cup…A molded cup does not add extra bulk or size to a woman whether you are a B or a DD, but rather provides smoothing, shaping and privacy. Ilene does not see women ever trending away from the molded cup! Great news for Back’ngroovemom and the braduct (don’t worry – reveal will be sooner than later).
I know! You are ready to get to the lingerie part! Whether you are working this Monday on Valentine’s Day, planning a sexy lunch or dinner date, or having a quiet night at home watching romance movies and nibbling on a box of candy – a little bit of lingerie can make you feel fabulous. Here is a sampling of the goodies that I found at Cheeks…..
Josie tiger print molded cup bra (with red straps) and panties are both guaranteed to smooth and shape! Good for V-Day and every other day of the year! This bra feels amazing and is definitely a BacknGroove-Recommended Bra!
Mad Mac boy shorts and cami — Mad Mac is a newer brand (as in — support start-ups) that has a sensational smooth feel along the inside. V-Day lingerie is not only red — hot pink makes a statement, too!AND, ladies – I cannot forget a black bra – nothing sexier than a black bra! You cannot go wrong with this one by Chantelle.
Wishing all my BacknGroove-Gals a luscious Valentine’s Day! I hope that you have a sweet and sexy day – even if you just have an amazing bra under your work clothes on Monday! For me – it will be a cupcake and one of my amazing BacknGroove-Recommended Bras. Tweet me at @backngroovemom and let me know what you are doing/wearing for V-Day!
