In the words of Barney Stinson, it was LEGEN… wait for it… DARY!!!

I truly didn’t imagine that a random conversation on Twitter with Paris B would become the epic event (in Beetrice’s words) that was My Women Stuff Readers Choice Awards.

Lace Petals – Online lingerie shopping

Lingerie sure has come a long way from the days of bloomers and underpants, hasn’t it? Because now you can find lingerie in almost every color and material imaginable and in many different cuts and looks. And while I do love doing my lingerie shopping in the flesh (you get to see, touch and even try on!) there are times when you just can’t or don’t feel like doing so. Like when nothing catches your fancy – that happens to me a lot because I don’t like local lingerie designs. Or if Aunt Flo comes for a visit. Or maybe you’re a guy who wouldn’t be caught dead hanging around the lingerie section in the department store. That’s where Lace Petals comes in.

My first ever indulgent lingerie purchase was from Lace Petals. Why do I say indulgent? Because for the first time ever, I bought myself some lingerie that made me feel sexy and not utilitarian. Talk about bringing out your inner sex kitten! :P

As far as online shopping goes, shopping with Lace Petals is very much a pleasant experience. It’s super easy to browse through the website’s varied selection of babydolls, camisole sets, chemises, bustiers, corsets and teddies. In fact, I spent many minutes going from page to page trying to figure out which type of lingerie I would treat myself to!

After some indecision on my part, I thought I should *ahem* throw caution to the wind and settled on this Stretch Lace Bustier from Elegant Moments. :P

For guys who are thinking of gifting something for their wife, girlfriend, significant other, I like how Lace Petals has come up with a Buying Guide to help make a decision and make the process less stressful and traumatizing. (Just kidding about the traumatizing part!)

Once you’ve selected your lingerie, it’s a breeze to check-out and pay as Lace Petals gives you the option of making payment via several channels – PayPal, MasterCard, Visa or online bank transfers to Maybank or CIMB Bank. Convenience rules because it means I can make my payment without having to move from my home!

There is also the option of gift-wrapping your purchase, but I found the standard Lace Petals packaging to be already very much a present in itself. The purple box discreetly hints at the contents, which is delicately wrapped in soft tissue paper and artfully displayed so that the moment you open up the box, you know exactly what you’ve just gotten.

Oh, and did I mention that shipping is FREE to anywhere in Malaysia? Awesome. :)

If you’re on FaceBook, you can also join the Lace Petals page to receive updates on new lingerie arrivals and promotions.
