All of mine is crap, and although i have more important things to be thinking about, i fancy treating myself to some new stuff.

So does nice underwear really make you feel good ????

Nailpolish, don't like it, feels odd. Might have to try it again though

Only if it's sufficiently slapperish, none of this matching white cotton pants'n'bra stuff.

MI, my dh has a thing for virginal white, slapperish for me is for when i go out with the girls!

Yes it does for me.

Obviously it's not a cure for big stuff but it certainly helps to lift my spirits. These days you don't have to spend a fortune to get nice, tasteful but still sexy undies in nice fabrics.

Right will start looking

I like La Senza for good choice, nice prices and great fit. They do a hugggggggggge array of sizes too, which is fab for us odd-sized peeps.

won't it make dp think you've got another man - or is that the idea?

nutcracker Mon 11-Apr-05 14:56:55

He already thinks that Iota.

Thanks for that link NDP have never looked there before.

Much easier to swallow than the prices on figleaves et al, where £30 is the norm for a bra.

It makes me feel good IF I've done a load of pampering too, like a long bath or shower from which I emerge with smooth legs, clean hair, decent eyebrows, body lotioned etc. And then putting on nice underwear adds to the whole feeling great thing. But nice pants alone might not make you happy!

I would prefer a nice lunch
or a nice sleep tbh

nutcracker Mon 11-Apr-05 15:01:55

Think i'll have to be measured first, although different shops seem to fit different anyway.
