Thigh high boots, oversized coats, oxblood lips: all the things we love about winter. But what about the things we don’t love so much? When the weather turns cold we pile on the layers, which can often double as a way to hide the evidence of overindulging in comfort foods. If you find it hard to feel sexy during the cooler months, we have some tips to help you shake off those cold weather blues so you can be fierce and fabulous once again. After all, you want to feel confident when all those layers come off...

First up, get your booty into gear! It can be all too easy to let your workout regime slip. Not only does regular exercise keep you in top condition, it also improves your mood and self-image, which are huge contributors to feeling irresistible. Nights can be the toughest as we tend to curl up on the couch and favour hot chocolate over hot yoga, so sign up for some evening workout classes to avoid the temptation of a couch binge altogether.
It’s also important to eat well. No one feels sensual with a cold, and no, we don’t need to produce our own insulation layer by eating doughnuts on the regular! You can easily find healthy, delicious winter recipes to keep your body strong and energised for those big days...and nights!

Self-love is the ultimate way to feel good naked in winter. Embrace your curves. Play with the glam winter ensembles you own, or add a bit of cheekiness to an everyday outfit for added confidence. Don’t go for boring underneath all of those layers; wear some luxurious matching lingerie under your warmest clothes and be amazed by how bold and sexy you suddenly feel. Plus, you won’t get into a steamy moment and suddenly panic about your laddered stockings or worn out bra!

Ladies, never again will we hide under the covers! If it’s freezing outside but heating up inside the bedroom, proudly own your fabulous figure. After all, we all know one of the best ways to keep warm on a chilly night...
