Honorable Underthings

With my newly inspired attempt to turn myself back into a woman when I enter my bed at night, I have stumbled across some fantastic lingerie. There are tons of options out there from Target and TJMaxx to Nordstrom and fancy boutiques if you look you are bound to find something to suit your style and your budget. I have highlighted some great places and pieces that I found worth mentioning. Enjoy the journey, the feeling of fabrics other than fleece, and most of all enjoy the slumber!

Zovo Lingerie Boutique:
A beautiful collection of brands and designs to start your journey with feminine silhouettes, fantastic fabrics, and sleep friendly accessories that should make your bed a place of peace and romance. My Favs: Zovo Cotton/Sateen Pajama Top, Pants and Bermuda Shorts in White, Zovo Supima Cotton Lycra Tank in Ink, and Cadolle New Belem Babydoll in White
My favorite site for nursing bras and maternity intimates has turned into a must have resource for fuss-free basic and fancy but, always beautiful underthings!! Check out the new Baby Bumbum collection too! My Favs: The Flutterby Nightdress in Blue, The Lotus Nightdress in Black/Pearl, The Mata Hari Cami and Loungepant in Amethyst, and The Fleur Lace Triangle Cami and Girlshort in Grape. For Maternity and Nursing try the Lotus Basics and Loungewear line! Just Divine!
For it's East-into-West spirit and it's luxurious fabrics, Natori is an old favorite. It's a nice place to find something unique like Kimono style robes, caftans, or elegant gowns. These pieces will surely make you feel like a woman! Plus, inspire yourself and read Josie Cruz Natori's story. Anything is possible!
My Favs: The Chrystie Chemise by Josie, The Julep Cami PJ by Cruz, The Basho Gown by Natori, and The Ikat Print Robe with Kimono sleeves by Natori
This designer offers us a beautifully affordable and casual collection that deserves some attention. From playful ruffles to scalloped trims, these intimates are reminiscent of what you wore when you were a little girl but of course much more grown up!!! Don't be discouraged that this is a woman's underwear brand from Abercrombie and Fitch Co. These pieces will remind you why you used to sleep in your panties and excite you to do so once more! My Favs: The Edgecliff Cami and pantie in Light Grey and the HayMarket Sleep dress in Navy
A great place to find all your sleepwear must haves. Nordstrom offers a nice variety of designer and in house brands that surely will entice the woman out of any sleep deprived mom! Check out the in house brand "Make + Model" for cute, cozy, affordable sets, "Josie" from Natori, "PJ Salvage", and for more fancy feelings enjoy "Huit", "Vera Wang", and "Cosabella".
My Favs: Make + Model Rib Knit Henley in Peacoat Stripe; Josie "Karma" Pajamas in Buttercup; and PJ Salvage French Cut Chemise in White
The old standby that mainstreamed lingerie into America's public circle has added new and surprisingly sassy yet comfortable pieces for woman outside the "Pink" age limit. The place I used to reference for sexy night things and cotton "comma" panties has lured me back with it's nice collection of chemises, tank and pantie sets, and cute silhouettes that even make cotton seem like silk! If you need to feel like an Angel again check out their latest looks!
My Favs: VS Soft Maxi Nightgown in Heather Chocolate, VS Soft Silk and Cotton Cami and Tap pant in Aqua Floral, and the Silk and Cotton Nightie in Mini Stripe
