Score Some Gorgeous Lingerie

This Sensuous Wife has discovered that what I wear under makes me feel good all over. Even at the office. Even in the grocery store. Even with a van full of children on my way to a soccer game. Yep, even then.

Wearing beautiful lingerie reminds me that underneath all my roles...mother, manager, writer, friend, employer, vendor...underneath all those roles, my core identity is woman. While I enjoy sharing all the dimensions of my personality with my husband (he is sure glad that I am the family accountant instead of him!) the most precious and fun part of my personality I can offer my husband is woman. Beautiful woman. But I work hard at my job. And it's easy to lose your self in the details of work and laundry and classes and..... I need a tangible reminder, that underneath it all, I am a queen. So I threw out all the sensible beige underwear and bought pretty stuff like this. At prices like these I could afford to look like a queen on a lady-in-waiting budget. JC Penney has rolled out this new line of lingerie that is as pretty and sensuous as Victoria's, at about half the price.

I'll give you an example:
Ambrielle Mystique Lace Balconet Bra $19 It's so gorgeous! Look at the sweet little lace flowers blooming up the shoulder strap. This is lingerie so pretty your husband will only leave it on you for 5 minutes! But unlike other wear-five-minute lingerie (usually a filmy chemise), this is sexy five-minute-lingerie that you can actually wear under your outside world clothes. Imagine how sensuous you feel wearing gorgeous stuff like this under your shorts-and-t-shirt soccer mom uniform. The world may see a soccer mom but YOU know what's inside, dontcha? Meow. -SW

Wow, thanks, e-mom. Intimate Issues is one grrrreat book. Those girls have got it goin' on.

Well, tricia goyer, let's see if we can do anything about that. I've posted an ENCOURAGING comment to your mister goyer over on your blog.

(grin) katie, your grin is contagious. thank you.

paula neal mooney I'm glad you found me too. Feeling found is one of my favorite feelings. Great idea for the subscription thing. I'll visit those links you gave me and I'll ask blogger if they have some subscription tool I haven't enabled yet. May take me a few days. :O)

Beautiful! And what a price, too! Good for Penney's...VS's stuff doesn't seem to fit actual hourglass ladies anymore anyhow.

It's very true, what you have written about how something this simple can remind us of what we are...maybe it's time to clean out the closet and tell Hubby we need to go shopping. :)
