The classic Valentine’s Day gift is lingerie. Not everyday stuff that ticks the “practical” and “comfy” boxes, but lingerie that inspires romance and stimulates under-the-covers assignations. But finding titillating lingerie when you’re an AAA-cup or AA-cup bra size isn’t easy — which makes it all the more difficult for your other half to come up trumps when searching for a Valentine’s gift.
To make it easier, I’ve tracked down some of the AAA-cup and AA-cup lingerie that I love — the pieces that surpass the “everyday” and could add a frisson to your Valentine’s Day celebrations.
