Although Valentine’s Day gift guides are usually chock full of lingerie, most women actually prefer to buy their own lacy bits (trying to wrangle oneself into an intimidatingly complex yet ill-fitting undergarment being more awkward than arousing). If you’re looking to treat yourself this year, we recommend this satin bralette and lace underwear by Fortnight Lingerie, a Parkdale-based label whose luxurious pieces hit the sweet spot between cotton granny panties and whatever this thing is. They’re highly tailored for a supportive fit and have a vintage sex appeal that will appeal to your partner—not least because you’ll have saved him from making an awkward shopping trip to Victoria’s Secret. Bra, $69; low-rise knicker, $48.
