*Disclaimer: Eden Fantasys, people. You know what this review is going to be alluding to, right? Please check to make sure your little one isn't reading over your shoulder before continuing.
Is there an age that I'll reach when I'll start actually feeling like an adult? In my early twenties I was still young and carefree and even when I was out of college, I didn't feel like I was really "grown up." After I got married I remember thinking "That man is my husband. My husband," every time I looked at him, but it didn't really change how I felt about myself.
Now that I have children of my own... well, there are still those moments when I wonder what these kids are doing in my house. I'm somebody's mother. Two somebodies, actually, and as much as I love them fully and completely, one of the few things that has changed about me since they arrived is how I feel when I look at myself in the mirror.
Let's face it, the way you feel about your body is almost as important as the way your significant other feels about you. With the exception of a small group of women, what do a whole lot of moms see when we look at ourselves? Our battle scars of giving birth: stretch marks or loose skin or c-section scars or the pooch that won't go away... all lovely reminders of what our bodies went through to bring our children into the world.
I'm not at all saying that it wasn't worth it, because of course it was. However, seeing it all sure doesn't make a mom feel very sexy, does it? So, whether it is Valentine's Day or any day throughout the year, when it comes time for romance, it's nice to have something to put on so that you can feel a little alluring and step away from being just Mom for a while.
But where do you go to fine lingerie that will have a wide selection of styles and sizes but you won't feel completely awkward walking in the door or making a purchase? Look no further than Eden Fantasys, where every variety and type of lingerie is clearly displayed and easy to browse and you won't ever have to make eye contact with a salesperson (and the box will arrive completely nondescript).
If you are going for a softer, sweeter look, check out the gowns, chemises or babydolls that Eden Fantasys offers in all colors and lengths. Maybe a little something more provocative? How about their sexy panties, corsets or bustiers? Or, if you're really looking to add a little fun in the bedroom, there are 105 different costumes that can have you dressed as a sexy maid, sheriff or Little Miss Muffet in no time at all.
When I removed Eden Fantasys' sexy satin corset and g-string (shown centered above) from the box, I was immediately impressed with all of the small details that go into making this a quality set. The fuchsia satin includes boning up the front to add support and shape and the lace highlights the vertical lines and your curves. The ruffled mesh trim and lace-up back (which allows it to be completely adjustable to your figure) give this corset a sassy edge to it... and there's nothing wrong with a little sass now and again.
Putting on this satin corset is easy with the busk closure (the studs on one side slide into a series of clasps on the other side) on the front and it automatically gives a feeling of lift and highlights your waist. Immediate self-confidence and poise by doing something as simple as slipping this on? Now that's sexy.
If lingerie isn't on your shopping list this Valentine's Day, Eden Fantasys has thousands of other options to choose from. Whether you're looking to enjoy a quiet, intimate evening or really spice things up with your partner, this is the website that will help you do just that.
Even though Valentine's Day will have passed when this giveaway ends, one person will get to have a fun shopping spree at Eden Fantasys to keep the romance alive all year long, because...
