There is an air of romance around and it’s not just because Valentines Day is around the corner. Feminine, frilly and flirty fashion is slowly creeping back into our lives ever so discreetly. And it has already reclaimed the world of lingerie.

The comeback of the pretty styles from the 1960s and 70s is long overdue. We all love the colour and prints of our Bonds bras and briefs, but it’s about time we embraced our girly side… and I’m sure the boys would agree.

Think high-waisted briefs and balconette bras with frills in all the right places. Salmon and baby pink colours add to the old-world allure, as do subtle hints of black lace.

Remember that women could look damn sexy without the aid of booster bras and t-bar thongs, the real appeal in lingerie is peek-a-boo sheer fabrics.

And for the really adventurous lady, nothing is more sensual than a old-fashioned corset. The hourglass figure is the most coveted shape, by both men and women, and has been the most famous and attractive shape throughout history.

So if you’re looking for girly lingerie to make his eyes pop this Valentines Day, we’re loving luxe lingerie store Nocturnal Designs, in The Stand, Sydney. Pick from gorgeous brands such as Chantal Thomass, Chantelle, Fifi Chachnil, Simone Perele, Lejaby, Leg Avenue, Sally Jones, Jools, Arianne.
