The holiday of love is nearly upon us, which traditionally signals a flurry of chocolates, flowers, champagne and novelty card buying. One of my favourite aspects about Valentine's day is that it is the perfect excuse to treat a loved one (or yourself!) to a gift that can be appreciated for many occasions to come.
Buying lingerie for somebody else is no mean feat, so factoring in size and personal tastes is a 'must', along with considering the purpose of your gift - will the lingerie be wearable/practical/versatile or will the lingerie be confined solely to the bedroom?
Finding the perfect Valentine's lingerie gift for a fuller bust once seemed like an impossible task, but the D+ market is fast-expanding, bringing with it a wide range of fashionable and supportive bras, slips and babydolls to tickle your fancy!
