Remember when Posh and Becks did that ultra-sexy W Magazine feature in only their skivvies? Well I do, and it was insanely hot. I’m all for over-sharey celebrity couples that strip down on camera, see, and even wrote the copy for this public display of affection.
But when it comes to the Posh and Becks shoot, my favorite bit is the bras. Posh totally put me on to VPL’s utilitarian-inspired bras and I’ve been wearing them ever since. Most lingerie’s inherent goal of making the wearer look sexy has always struck me as the stark opposite, much in the way that trying too hard is never cool. Free from overly feminine embellishment, VPL’s under-things look confident and modern, never desperate for approval.
And they’re seriously comfortable! Honestly, try going back to under-wires after wearing one of these. You won’t be able to do it. My fave is the Insertion bra topped with a loose tank, but the Bisectional Bra is great for when you want something less visible.
Am I totally wrong to be turned off by "sexy" lingerie? Go on, tell me what you think in the comments!
