Valentine’s Day is coming up in a week so I wanted to share my sweet little gifts to my boyfriend because we won’t be able to spend the holiday together since he is away on a work trip. Yes, I know many object to this sexist consumer-driven day but I like to make the best of it and show you how I’m doing it my way!
Sugarfina, a luxury candy boutique famed for their yummy champagne and rosé gummy bears, collaborated with MeUndies for this super sweet collection for Valentine’s Day. I had introduced my boyfriend and his family to Sugarfina over Christmas so I couldn’t resist splurging, even though the women’s Rosé Bears print was sold out in everything except the boyshort. The fabrics are so silky soft, no chafing or rubbing or rolling up during my work outs, and they actually hold up well to washing and drying. I recommend washing in cold water and hang drying to preserve the colors!
As much as the Rosé Bears would be most natural fit for Sugarfina’s signature print, my favorite is the black, white, red and pink Heart Party pattern. It is quite appropriate for Valentine’s Day but I think it’s wearable throughout the year due to the pop art styling with black trim. I only used to wear Hanky Panky, but because of my affinity for leggings I prefer seamless underwear nowadays. My boyfriend is dedicated to the boxer brief, and I wear the thong in size S but I was surprised to find the cheeky brief in XS the most comfortable.
Whether you get to play dress up and go on a date with your loved one or not, even if you’re single and the thought of Valentine’s Day makes you gag, treat yourself to something as seemingly insignificant as underwear. Not much is better than self-love so take time to appreciate yourself, too xo
