I recently learned about Valentine via one of my girlfriends who was positively fanatical about their lingerie. Like, crazy-fanatical… (we were discussing via g-chat and the conversation took a turn for the caps lock button.) I took a peek at their site and liked their aesthetic (and affordable price points), so I ordered a few pieces. I immediately loved the look of the Runaway Panty (sexy stretch lace in front, comfy jersey in the back) but wasn’t so sure how I’d like the bras… as pretty as they are, flimsy triangle bras don’t tend to do me any favors. Alas, in the name of research (and matching), I ordered a bra too… but was pleasantly surprised when I got it in the mail. Besides the fact that the lace is exquisitely pretty (and looks so much more expensive than it actually cost), it’s quite functional as well. It’s structured like a regular bra in back, with adjustable straps and an adjustable hook, so it ends up actually being quite supportive. (I wouldn’t advocate participating in a triathalon, but for everyday wear, they are quite nice.) I placed my second order over the weekend. A+, Valentine!
