As a personal image consultant myself, my very first advice to customers is: make sure you choose well, your lingerie first.
Make sure it fits well, has the right color for you and makes you feel great.
The perfect fit in lingerie is not a trivial problem. Whatever you size and body shape, if the fit is not perfect, you will end up going to your best friend or personal stylist and say… “Hey, I need to stay on a diet as you see… I have these rolls on my hips, on my tummy…”
The very truth is that, probably, you are not wearing the right lingerie piece for your body type.
It might also happen that you need to wear a uniform at work, and lingerie is the only key piece you can play with. Laces, colors, details can really make the difference even when nobody is watching. Those details will make the difference to you: the positive color vibes will penetrate your skin, the satin or laces fabric will caress your skin, the little charm on your underwear or bra will give that precious touch.
Another thing I often tell my customers is: choose the right shaping lingerie. But again, the choices are lots but often not as satisfying and accessible as expected. They might shape the bust and squeeze thighs unaesthetically or shape legs and bust and roll down as you sit.
I know you can add endless sad stories on this matter.
When I first talked to Zazel about the oufits we were going to create for the video, I asked her:
What do you like wearing?
She said: Anything that make me feel good and sexy.
That’s when I put “sexy lingerie” on my list. I wanted something powerful, elegant and perfectly fitting.
When I reached out to Parfait and Amandine Taylor, responded positively to supporting and sponsoring The Bigger Plans Project I was in seventh heaven!
I dream of a day, when I can walk in my favourite lingerie shop here in Milan, and buy the same item on the mannequin (or worn by the model on the giant poster in the window) fitting perfectly on me (or my customers) as well.
Enjoy this virtual conversation with Amandine Taylor , Marketing team leader, Erika Raygoza, Assistant Marketing Coordinator and myself on Parfait and their decision about working with us. Last but not least: now you know where to buy the perfect Confortable, Beautiful and Sexy lingerie Christmas gift for your loved one.
