Ah, amour–it’s February, and love is in the air. While the calendar says that it’s time to strip down and create some body heat, two years of working from home have created an expectation of comfort, intimates included. If you’re feeling more casual sensuality and less high-stress (and strap) lingerie, Kansas City’s boutiques have great options for flirty, fun, feel-good options for your wintertime snog-fest.
Love is Natural
Let the forces of nature take over with these silky viscose pajamas from Colombian designer Ellipse. These shorty pajamas feature a tiered ruffle back and deep pockets on the shorts, all in a beautiful print exclusive to Ellipse, made using zero water. Printed pajamas by Ellipse, $170, available at Birdies Panties and Swim in the Crossroads.
Hearts on Your—Sleeve?
For a fun take on a matching set, try a stretchy, wire-free bralette, like this one from Xirena, matched with a low hipster panty. Playful hearts keep it on theme, while the buttery soft poly-cotton blend makes it ultra-comfortable. Pair with red lipstick and a rom-com—partner optional. Gisele bra in I Heart U, $87, Paloma panty in I Heart U, $53, available at Clairvaux in Fairway.
For a more traditional take on lingerie, go with a classic—black lace never fails. The lacy Molly bralette with scalloped edges is comfortable and gorgeous. Choose between a cheeky Brazilian-cut panty and a wide banded thong. Plus, this set is cut and sewn in Kansas City, with a panty donated to a woman in need for every item purchased. Panty set in black, $88, available at Madi Apparel in Westside.
