2 Soma Intimates

Just in time for V-Day, Soma Intimates has rolled out its Soma Kisses collection, offering a selection of super-soft and lacy bras, panties, chemises, camis and more (or less, depending on how you want to look at it). We're fans of their extra-long and lacy sleep shirts and gowns, which are just as figure-flattering as they are comfortable. And the brand does well to always carry a mix of classics, both in style and colors, and trendier lingerie featuring bold prints and unique lines. But every piece of apparel was made with a beautiful, feminine silhouette in mind, so find what you like, then let Soma do the rest to leave you looking and feeling fabulous.
