Top 3 Must-Have Valentine’s Day Outfit Details

5-must-have-valentines-day-outfit-details-b

We heart Valentine’s Day here at Hips & Curves, for obvious reasons. And we want to remind you that we’re here to help you put together the perfect outfit for that specific romantic dinner (or day!) that you might be planning. Just talk to one of our consultants for some advice on a great Valentine’s Day look for you.

Here are the top 3 things we always have to remind people of, to get you started:

1. Don’t forget your legs. There’s nothing quite like the feel of a perfect pair of silky stockings. Somehow, even the sound they make as you’re walking is sensual. What better way to highlight than with a set of thigh-high stayups? And don’t forget some graphic detail to add some interest to a little black (or red, or white!) dress. Our signature Lace Top Sheer Thigh High Stay Ups are a staff favorite.

2. Valentine’s Day isn’t just about sexy. Probably the thing we love most about Valentine’s Day is that, if you’re celebrating with someone, that person probably loves you for being you. So: Are you playful? A comfy T-shirt kind of girl? A hopeless romantic? Be true to you, whether you’re planning a day out or your outfit for it–that’s the most attractive thing of all.

3. Engage all the senses. People always forget: It’s not just about the way you look. The olfactory sense is by far the best at evoking memories, and our sense of touch can tip something casual into sexy territory, so make sure to put all of our senses to work this Valentine’s Day with something like our massage lotion, or a special scent.

February’s right around the corner. Have a look at our web site, chat to our consultants; let’s make this Valentine’s Day your most romantic, playful, and sensuous ever.

Better Than Flowers and Chocolate: Great Valentine’s Alternatives

Great Valentine's Alternatives

Ah, Valentine’s Day. A day to show off off your love for the one you love, whether that be dressing up in a gorgeous Valentine’s Day outfit, or letting them unwrap you to find some tart, sexy Valentine’s Day lingerie.

But it is Valentine’s Day, not just Valentine’s dinner, or even Valentine’s-in-the-sack, so we put our brains to work to find some alternatives to the ho-hum Valentine’s Day presents we all have inevitably received and given over the years.

This year, instead of chocolates and flowers, consider:

A little succulent garden. We’ll never get over how lush and long-lasting succulent plants can be. Yes, we know, they’re like the new Pet Rock, or whatever, but still. These little guys charm anyone with their infinite shapes and varieties and colors, and they’ll last a long, long time.

A day out. Yeah. Spend the whole day together. Give yourself carte blanche. Is it binge-watching Supernatural, complete with commentary? Is it meandering aimlessly around town? Or is it a wine-tasting tour? Give it a try. After all, Valentine’s is a day to do what you love with whomever you love.

A better way to chocolate. If your Valentine really loves chocolate, why not give them a tour of a chocolate factory, or, better yet, take a workshop with them on how to make it? A quick search will turn up a number of options in your area. We found quite a few, including this one, with options all the way through spring, 2017.

Okay, one for the bedroom. Have you seen our Fifty Shades of Grey (TM) kit? How about trying something really new with your Valentine? Our Hard Limits Universal Restraint Kit will definitely up the ante.

What was your favorite Valentine’s Day gift ever? And what are you planning for this year?

Donate a bra, celebrate #GivingTuesday

givingtuesday

Imagine not being able to afford a simple necessity, like a bra.  The impact to donating your old bras can be monumental in the lives of women who lack basic undergarments that we take for granted.  Celebrate #GivingTuesday and benefit women and girls in desperate need of a bra!

A simple piece of lingerie, like a bra, is prized by women whose voices and choices have been muted by controlled and uncontrolled circumstances (e.g., human trafficking, cancer, domestic violence, natural disasters).  The majority of us don’t realize we can recycle used and unused textiles, like bras.  With 8 out of 10 women wearing the wrong-sized bra, this means there are thousand upon thousands of bras that can be reused and/or recycled to help women and girls in transition.

In partnership with The Bra Recyclers, we invite you to join thousands of socially and environmentally conscious recyclers around the world to help women in transition while reducing the amount of textiles that end up in landfills.

We’ll send you a 20% coupon code when you send us your gently used bras.
