As the holidays roll back around and we start to stockpile things we hope will surprise and delight our loved ones, it’s worth remembering to add ourselves to the list. In fact, last year, nearly 60 percent of people picked up something for themselves while holiday shopping, according to the National Retail Federation. Because no one but you can find yourself a perfect-fitting bra that makes you feel unstoppable, and that’s the kind of gift that keeps on giving.
Check out our curated bra and sleepwear gift guide, featuring 9 perfect presents that our amBRAssadors (above, from left: Melissa, Cristal, Mette and Candace) personally swear by.
Hanky Panky Holiday Original Rise Thong 5-Pack
I couldn’t agree more with Hanky Panky’s claim to fame: “the world’s most comfortable thong.” I’ve been a fan for over 15 years and can’t imagine wearing anything else. Hanky Panky garments are made from the best materials—the components are chosen for their specific stretch qualities, softness and fit. Better still: 100 percent of the fabrics and trims used to make their Signature Lace styles are knitted in the USA. I’ve tried the competitor’s brands but nothing compares. That’s why I’ll be gifting myself this beautiful multipack for the holiday season.
Chantelle Rive Gauche Bra
As a rule, I adore Chantelle. They have such a great fit and give a really nice shape. I love that this particular bra has some extra side support and provides a good amount of coverage yet is still really pretty and lacy. The crimson is a great color for the holidays.
There’s not much more I love than curling up at home in a big, soft, comfortable robe! This is the perfect length for the cold days of winter. It’s a total “treat yourself” item.
Empreinte Erin Demi Bra
The saying is true: You get what you pay for. This bra may have a higher price tag, but it’s truly an investment piece. The bra fits as though it was custom-made for me, and the materials are unmatched in quality and luxury. I particularly love the Erin Demi because I am shallow at the top of my breasts with a shorter upper torso, and the cup fits me perfectly without any gapping or puckering at the top. In either black or nude, this is a beautiful, sexy bra that can actually be worn every day and, with the right care, last for years.
Ashley Graham Provocative Harness Bodysuit
Finding plus-size lingerie that makes you look and feel sexy can be a challenge, but this piece is well up to the task. I love this bodysuit not only for its playful versatility, but because it’s constructed in a way to flatter the figure in all the right places. The sheer, geometric print paneling is placed just so to emphasize my curves while still giving a slim, sexy silhouette. The keyhole cutouts and convertible strappy back are very on-trend and add something special to this anything-but-basic teddy.
Calvin Klein Essential Modal Sleep Top and Pajama Pants
The stretch modal cotton that these separates are made of is so soft and comfortable. The satin trim is subtle and so pretty. It’s enough to make you never want to get out of your pajamas—as if I needed an excuse!
Ugg Amie Boots
I love these boots! With frigid Northeastern winters, warm, comfortable boots are key. I also really love that this particular pair has a cute, small wedge. I’m short, so any added height is a good thing as far as I’m concerned. I happen to have really high arches, and this pair has additional arch support, which feels amazing.
Prima Donna Deauville Full Cup Bra
Prima Donna bras fit full busts extremely well and are very comfortable. I would love to treat myself to such a beautiful, sexy and supportive piece that’s equally perfect for a long day at work or running errands. The Ruby Gold color reminds me of autumn leaves—so perfect for the holiday season. As a bonus, the ornate straps would help brighten the whole day.
Flora by Flora Nikrooz Stella Charmeuse Gown
This beautiful nightgown would make me feel like a princess as I lay under my covers, snuggle on my couch watching a movie or relax in front of the fireplace—what could be nicer than feeling like royalty and still being wildly comfortable? This piece is an absolute perfect treat to myself for the holidays that I could enjoy all year long.
