Here's What Happened When I Wore a Pearl Thong
Pearls are known for being sophisticated and elegant – think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's or that famous painting of the Girl with a Pearl Earring.
But pearls can also be super sexy. Not convinced? Check out this gorgeous crotchless pearl thong.
I'd had my eye on it for a while, so after working through some body image issues, I decided to treat myself to some lingerie to improve my confidence.
I used to think that you needed a 10/10 body with no jiggly bits or cellulite to wear lingerie, but when my discreetly packaged box from Lovehoney arrived, I forgot all my inhibitions and ran upstairs to try it on.
Here's what happened when I wore my pearl panties for the first time.
Major Confidence Boost
I felt amazing in my new thong. The soft black lace flattered my hips and the crotchless material made me feel like a sex goddess. The string of pearls nestled intimately between my legs, adding a certain sophistication to the look.
The lingerie gave me the confidence boost I really needed, making me feel sexy again. All day I was oozing confidence, and I loved having a secret reason to smile to myself. My friends even remarked that I seemed happier than usual!
My partner loved my new panties, and he loved how good I felt while wearing them.
Slipping them on under a skirt drove him wild, and he's been asking for me to wear them more often than I can wash them.
Even if your partner hasn't expressed interest in lingerie before, you can't go wrong with crotchless panties. They're extremely flattering and allow easy access for your partner – what more could you want?
The pearls weren't at all uncomfortable like I'd worried; in fact, their subtle rubbing against my intimate areas kept me really turned on all day. By the time foreplay began, I was already raring to go.
The crotchless material was easy to slip to one side so I didn't even need to take off my new favourite undies for sex. This makes the thong perfect for quickies or risky sex when you're worried one of your housemates might knock on the bedroom door.
I was really impressed by the high quality of the pearl thong, especially because it was so inexpensive. Plus, it looks amazing with a black lace push up bra like this.
I'll definitely be buying myself more lingerie in the future. As well as being sexy, it's a form of self-care: reminding myself that I'm sexy and I deserve to feel confident in my own skin.
Plus, it's a treat for my partner as well. Win-win!
