Bellefleur Lingerie Book Club: All You Need to Be Impossibly French by Helena Frith Powell. Discussion Two

We are loving your comments on Discussion One!  Feel free to continue to post on older post as we move on to the next discussion question. 

Chapter Three, The Secret Weapon, brings up a topic we find ourselves discussing in the shop regularly; your underwear can set the tone for the day.  Here are a few of our favorite quotes from different French women in this Chapter:


"If your underwear isn't right, nothing else is."~ Chantal Thomass, French lingerie designer

"If I start with a good base, the I know I will dress well...If I want to seduce, I wear a certain ensemble, if I am filming and have to be comfortable, I wear another."~ Sylvie Tellier, former Miss France and TV personality

"It may not be seduction of someone else...for a French woman this can mean the seduction of herself, to feel good about herself and happy in her skin."~ Odlie Morvan, director of underwear at Galeries Lafayette

Have any of you ever experienced a time when you felt like wearing a matching set or a garter belt changed your mood and made you feel more confident?  What do you think correlation is between a women's self awareness, the way she communicates with her environment, and what lies underneath her clothes?

  2. If I'm wearing underwear that is ugly, it can make me feel that way. If it's not pretty, I would rather just not wear it all. I like my underwear to reflect how I feel as a women: strong, beautiful, and adventerous.

    1. We agree! Having on a matching set can boost your confidence and make you feel more beautiful. We love your self reflection!

  3. You should always be prepared and all feel like a pulled together lady and that starts with the underpinnings!! That's why we come the Belle Fleur right? Because underwear really can make us feel like a million bucks... and its like our awesome little secret!

  4. It is amazing how wonderful the perfect bra or panty can make you feel! Knowing that something so beautiful and comfortable is sitting so close to your body is a constant reminder of how beautiful you are. This confidence can make any day a little bit better- even if no one else sees your secret undergarments, their unique beauty will shine through in the way you present yourself! How cool is it that we have the power to wear something that's physically hidden, yet so actively influential on us and the way we present ourselves from day to day?!
