Ready for your dose of dopamine! Hurray! Welcome back to this special collaboration with Curve’s Revealed Magazine where we’re exploring “Dopamine (Under)dressing”. While “dopamine dressing” was coined during the pandemic, I know that what we wear underneath has just as big (if not bigger) ability to boost our mood and change our day (or night).

In fact, with this fun set we get to explore something with the ability to be worn out and about with jeans and heels, or as a boudoir item. I love it when that happens! However you wear it, the beautiful colors, fun appliqués, and over the top sleeves on this item might have some thinking “it’s too much”. But I disagree. What if our world is meant to be bold, whimsical, and fun. What if joy and dressing for it was the norm? Maybe we’d all be happier, dressing for the mood we want to create in our day. What do you say? Explore with me below with this amazing set and see what I mean!

Psst! This post is sponsored by Empress Mimi. I’m so grateful to share them with you. I always share items that I truly love and can help you say hurray. 

This is part 4 of 7 and features: Empress Mimi! This female founded brand is newer to me, and I couldn’t be more excited to get to know them. Their designs are so fun, vibrant, and sassy – truly a dopamine (under)dressing brand! Plus, all of their bra designs are completely wire-free and every piece features adjustability in its design which means they can adjust to your shape or with your body as it changes. How cool is that? They say “each piece is lovingly made to be wearable art inspiring the wearer to unleash their inner Goddess”. I’m in! 

I’m so thrilled to share this UK based company and now have a treasure trove of fun things from them to wear and share. Choosing just one to share in this editorial was honestly a challenge! That said, this lilac colored bustier and built in bra top and sheer, voluminous sleeves were a stand out among the line. I was truly inspired by the over the top design and can see myself wearing this on a day when I need that extra pick me up and “I’m a goddess, just watch me” energy. Am I right? After all Madame X is their tribute to the beautiful butterfly-winged Goddess, Psyche, the goddess of the soul and married to the god of love. I’m not even a fan of butterflies (long story) and yet I felt so magical in this set. You can, too! Get the details on this sassy set below – and let me know if you wear it with pants or panties!
