An ode to the babydoll
It’s January. I am still eating mince fucking pies. I’ve had enough wine to make me fall into a bush (this actually happened) and there are Quality Street wrappers covering the house like a glittery glutenous carpet. It’s safe to say, I don’t feel my best.
I’m not sure there’s another time of the year where we all feel like we’re in permanent state of hungoverness. My size six friends are struggling to fit into their teeny jeans after a few too many pigs in blankets, my size 14 friends are throwing on oversized cardigans to hide their little turkey tummy and my plus size friends are vowing to look hot in a mini dress this time next year
So this leads me to a bit of an ode- a declaration of love, if you will. To the babydoll. Floaty, cute, girly and sexy, it’s the ultimate way to feel confident in the bedroom over January (and probably into Feb too if you’re still not ready to say goodbye to the Bailey’s).
Being plus size probably means I’ve become more attached to the babydoll than slimmer people. For me, strappy Agent Provocateur cropped bras and string like thongs do nothing to cover my little tummy and cellulite. For me, the tight red vest and cheeky stockings I dressed up in for Mr Sexy over Christmas just doesn’t feel as sexy when I’m feeling bloated from the extra 5lb I’ve piled on.
So my babydolls come out. All lace, chiffon and twirly. They enhance my cleavage, cover my hips, hide my bloat in a darling cover of semi-see through material. The babydoll can be worn as a sexy alternative to PJs, it can be kept on when you’re riding him so your tits don’t bounce from one side to the other and it can entice your man into the biggest erection of his life. Or perhaps that’s just Mr Sexy.
If you’re feeling more confident, you can get babydolls with sexy splits running up the front to give a little peek of soft skin underneath. You can get ones to cover your (no doubt fit-as-fuck) arse, you can get them in every colour, for every shape. And they’re perfect!
Maybe I sound crazy but I am yet to think of a naughty little bit of material that I feel sexier and more confident in.
