I’ve been back in Nigeria for about 7 years now, and I’ve never bought intimate-wear here. I always wait till I travel or someone I know is traveling and then I feast my heart out in Victoria’s Secret goodies. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like there are no intimate wear stores in the entire country, it’s just that I’ve never found a brand that matched up in fit, comfort, quality and was affordable.
This year, I noticed a store called Lulu Lingerie in Jabi Lake Mall, Abuja. Sometimes, I like to just walk around the mall and window shop (my way of exercising lol), and so I eventually arrived at Lulu. From the moment I walked in, I loved the fact that there were so many options in terms of color, style, and size, and the fact that it’s a family store.
My first test was to check whether they have my size. Even though many stores tend to have variety, they always seem to exclude very small sizes. To my surprise, I found my size in most of the styles and immediately I was partially sold. I didn’t buy anything the first time around, because I’ve been working on curbing my impulsive shopping habit, but I eventually went back to the store this week.
If you’re like me when it comes to intimate wear, I have ONE favorite bra. The one I love to wear the most even though I have a dozen others. Undies are a bit different but I definitely have a few favorites that I find myself rotating even though I have many more options. So now when I shop, I try to get key pieces that are comfortable and will fit into my ‘favs’ rotation.
This time, I shopped for Aisha and I and got a few things. I’m really small, so I like things that show off my figure. With that said, I got the smooth black seamless hipster (which you can wear with any outfit) and the black women’s comfort devotion natural boost strapless multiway bra. Aisha wanted something bright and sexy, so I got her a red lace trim bra with matching lace trim panties. I also got myself black leggings, which you can never have enough of, and got Aisha a one piece tummy control shapewear.
Needless to say, it’s been about 5 days and my new ‘it’ bra is now from Lulu Lingerie. The undies were SO comfortable that I’m ordering them in different colors. Aisha feels the exact same way about her sexy pieces and we’ve been raving to each other about what a great brand Lulu is.
If I were you, I would head to www.lululingerie.ng and start shopping now! However, if you are in Abuja, head of to Jabi Lake mall, tell them HAYATI sent you, and get 5% off your first purchase.
