The first rule of looking good, is definitely feeling good and lingerie is more about the feeling than the look. Afterall, it is an undergarment mostly seen by you. And because it is more about the feeling, it has the ability to set the tone of the day. Keeping in mind that there are various kinds of lingerie, the right one for you body and occasion/ outfit can give you the confidence and happiness you want, without you giving off the wrong impression.
KINDS OF LINGERIE
If you’ve never worn a lingerie and would like to start, I would recommend the lingerie set for starters. Even if you don’t use the matching plunge with the bra and panties, you own it and can wear it whenever you want, it is definitely a good investment. The color and material are usually the same and you wouldn’t need to worry about how to pair them. Once you find the one that suits your body, the embroidery patterns/ sewn in details are sure to make you feel feminine and youthful.
It looks like a playsuit and can be playful or seductive. It is a one-piece that comes in either mesh, cotton, lace or silk. The style varies and depends on your body/ taste. The material varies as well, making it easy to find something comfortable.
Since ancient times, corsets have been worn and used to accentuate curves. In fact, the idea of waist trainers was derived from corsets. For its ability to manipulate feminine silhouette, it has been modified and can be worn out if you wish to do so. It is also classy and feminine and one of the most popular/ most worn lingerie.
It is also called plunge slip and is made with light material like silk or lace. It is a gown that can vary in length, and can be worn over your lingerie. If you are not so comfortable with wearing just a lingerie, then this is great for you. There are various types you get to choose from based on preference.
This is a fusion of a bra and corset that has a segregated part for the bust unlike a corset. It is designed to create a flattering waistline while giving the bust the perfect lift. If you are looking to create the illusion of a smaller waist and firmer breast, then this is perfect for you.
Babydoll is great for women who are less confident about their hips and waist line. It usually has shaped cups that enhance the bust and flows out from below the shoulder area. It is often made of silk.
It is similar to babydoll but can be made from airy cotton or silk, it is less floaty but straighter and short. Although short, the length varies depending on preference. The neckline also varies to alter the look.
This looks like a one-piece swim wear only that the material is different. The lacey material makes it sexy and classy. These days, it is worn out, paired with a skirt, pant and jacket.
A must have for every woman. For its various fits and purposes, it is definitely a great investment when purchased. A lovely bra can create the right look in an outfit whilst being appealing as the same time. They come in different shapes, sizes and design. There’s always something for every woman.
As the name implies, it is literally like a sock that can be worn by the entire body, like a bodysuit that covers the leg. It is usually made from lycra/ elastic material, so it clings and stretches. Like other lingerie, its neckline varies as well. Because of it revealing nature, it is usually worn beneath other clothes.
