With Valentine's Day only a couple of short weeks away, many of us are scrambling to find those perfect Valentine's Day gifts for our significant other. It can be difficult, since men in general aren't into flowers or big teddy bears holding a heart. As a matter of fact, men aren't very concerned with sentimental knick-knacks as a whole. (At least not any men that I personally know!) This makes men rather tricky to shop for. To a guy, nothing says "I love you" better than a cold beer and a shiny new tool of some kind. But that's not very romantic, therefore it defeats the whole purpose of the occasion.
For my husband, chocolate is always a safe bet, but it lasts all of 2 seconds and then it's gone forever. One year I got him a 5lb Hershey's Bar, and he ate the whole darn thing in a matter of hours. I foolishly thought that he's savor the treat over the period of a couple of weeks, but that didn't happen. My hubby is the biggest chocoholic I have ever met. You could stick him in a room full of pregnant and PMS-ing women, and he would still put away more chocolate than the rest of them combined. Hopefully, they wouldn't maul him to death as he hogged the chocolate and he'd live to tell about it! Obviously, while he loves chocolate, I am not going there this year, since it tends to disappear far too quickly.
So this year, after a lot of head-scratching and deliberation,I intend to give him the gift that keeps on giving: Valentine's Day lingerie! No, hubby isn't a cross-dresser. It might be amusing to see him in a teddy, but he would never go for it, since he is a "manly man". I will be giving him ME, wearing some new enticing lingerie. Hey, what guy doesn't love to see his wife in something sexy? With 3 kids in the house, 2 of which are active toddlers, I don't dress up for him as often as I should. I usually wear PJ pants and a t-shirt or my so-not-sexy footie pajamas. (Hey, they're super comfy!) So when I greet him at the door in that cute little number you see above, I know that his jaw will hit the floor!
I recently received the cute little dress you see pictured above from my favorite place for sexy lingerie: Yandy.com. Yandy is an online retailer that offers hundreds...no, thousands of the best lingerie styles that are sure to get his blood pumping and make you feel like the sexy vixen you are underneath all of the spilt milk stains and baby food splatters! Trust me, she's in there somewhere! Motherhood does not mean we're not the same beautiful women our guys fell in love with. He just may need a little reminder! Yandy can help do just that! They have everything, from mild and demure to wild and totally kinky, as well as everything in-between. They also feature some of the best brands out there, such as Coquette, Dreamgirl, and Leg Avenue, just to mention a few.
One of my favorite things about shopping with Yandy, other than their ginormous selection, is the fact that many of their products feature videos that show how a garment looks on a person as they move. It's often hard to tell that from just a stock photo. Of course many photos feature what I like to call "lollipop ladies." You know what I mean...Impossibly beautiful models whose bodies have never seem the havoc that pregnancy and childbirth can often cause. They have no "wobbly bits" and their tatas are always pointing skyward. Sure, Yandy has these models, too. After all, they are selling lingerie, and these items look best on these models. But being able to see video of a product does help an average woman decipher how a product will look on her own body, how it will fall, and if it will be flattering or not. Nothing is worse than getting some frilly little garment, putting it on, and feeling like a stuffed sausage waiting to be thrown onto a grill. With their video options, this traumatic experience can likely be avoided.
I have also found that Yandy's size charts are very accurate, so you can be sure to get the right size with little guess-work. This is extremely helpful, since most brands' sizes tend to run a little differently. Yandy even carries some awesome plus size lingerie for the curvier gals out there! While I am a size 6 now, I did spent most of my teen and adult life between a 14-16, so I can definitely appreciate the fact that Yandy also caters to more voluptuous body types!
Check out some of my favorite Valentine's Day offerings from this fantastic shop!
So I'm sure you can see why I love Yandy so much! Not only are they a pleasure to work with, they offer the biggest selection of lingerie and sexy dresses I have found to date. Their customer service is amazing, and they ship lightning fast. I have a Yandy wish list about a mile long, and since they add new products regularly, it seems to be growing by the week! Yandy is definitely my retailer of choice when it comes to "bedroom attire." My husband likes them, too, obviously. He'll like them even more on Valentine's Day when he sees me in the Scalloped Lace and Lycra Dress I received to review. Giving him the gift of ME, wrapped up in a pretty lace dress complete with red satin bow, is so much better than a teddy bear or box of chocolates he'll devour in one sitting. This is a gift he can enjoy over and over again!
So ladies, if you're stumped about what you can do for your man this Valentine's Day, definitely consider checking out Yandy. Men are visual and sexual creatures, and they will definitely appreciate seeing their wives in something sexy this Valentine's Day! Whether it be soft, feminine and demure, or something a little more risque, Yandy has something for every taste and every budget. You definitely won't be disappointed! It might even get you a little something-something that's been lacking in the bedroom, wink, wink!
