Next Lingerie Set

I admit I keep it pretty simple when I buy underwear, it rarely has a pattern to it at all. But on the other hand I don't have anything very practical, for years I wore all black to work and I wore coloured underwear sets underneath to make myself feel like I wasn't being as dull as I seemed. Although nobody could really notice (apart from the odd neon bra strap here and there) I felt good. I think that's what nice underwear does to you, it's personal, it's for you, it's your own personal secret and it can make you feel great!


My most recent underwear purchase is from Next. I say 'purchase' but I actually won a set during a Twitter chat and when I was asked to pick out something from their range I decided to venture outside of my comfort zone -patterns! 

I picked the Carrie Butterfly print set, the coral and blue print against the pale pink stood out to me and I thought now was the right time to try something different. All of the colours are so pretty and feminine and it is the complete opposite of my bright cobalt blues and neon pinks that take up my underwear drawer!

When it arrived in the post it was even prettier than I thought and I'm glad I picked it, it feels lovely and girly and is very fitting for this time of year.

It is soft without any of those annoying 'sharp bits' that some bras seem to have and it feels really supportive at the same time. For £12-£14 it's a great price, even better as they are currently on offer at 2 for £22. 
The matching pants are pretty too, I love the lace either side and they are part of a 3 for 2 promotion at the moment so it would be rude to not treat yourself! -I'm terrible if there is an offer on!

The great thing is the Carrie Microfibre bras come in a range of colours and designs and from sizes 32AA to 38DD so they cater for a wide range. I've got my eye on a baby blue set.

This is my first underwear set from Next but I don't think it will be my last!

What kind of underwear do you go for? 

*I won this in a competition and although I didn't pay for it I was not obliged to write a review -I just wanted to share my thoughts!

  3. This is so cute! I used to wear matching every day, without fail, but not so much now I'm in a sports bra 6 days a week (sometimes 7)! xx
