Give me a blessing from Brighid any day, over an empty and commercial valentine's Day gesture. Surely we don't need excuses to be romantic? Or prompts to state our intent as the earth's energy starts to rise?
But just in case you do.... here's a collection of pretty bloomers, for outer wear or underwear, for all shapes, tastes and sizes. These bloomers are unique, never to be repeated. So grab them now. Once they're gone, they're gone.
I've given the maximum measurement at the hip, but it really depends how gathered you want your bloomers to be, as to how small your bottom is in them. A rough guide is 40"- 44" = size 10-12 with room to spare, 46"- 50"= size 14-16 allows for some gathering.
For those lovely fellas out there thinking to buy their beautiful belles a gift, if it helps with measurements (and you're using the excuse of not knowing her size or not having a tape measure to hand), a single square of toilet paper measures just short of 5". So, a bottom that fits a pair of jeans measuring 40" (8 sheets of loo roll), will be snug in bloomers of 40", but will allow gathering in a pair of 44".
