1. Research before heading to the store
Navigate on the net to see what styles and colors are available on the market. This will also help understanding what is “in style” this year. Below is a short description of the most commonly found styles of sensual lingerie.
Corset: Garment designed to slim the waist and create cleavage, usually lacing or clipping in the back.
Bustier: Form fitting top that looks like a long bra and covers the torso. Usually strapless but can also come with detachable garters.
Baby Doll: Short (often see-through) gown comprised of a bra top that flares down just under the bust and comes with a matching panty. Often comes with lace trim, ruffles, ribbons and bows. Innocent, but playful.
Chemise: Slightly flared or straight gown that follows the contour of the body.
Gown: Long loose flowing garment.
Teddy: Bodysuit-like that includes a camisole and panty in one piece.
Boy Cut/Boy Shorts/Brazilian: Panty that sits low on the hips and covers most (usually half) of the buttocks area. Extremely comfortable, boy shorts/Brazilian panties are also of the favorite picks by both men and women.
Thong: Underwear style with a thin fabric back that rests between the buttocks. This is your best option when wearing tight pants as they eliminate the panty line.
G-String: Similar to a thong, but with simply a string instead of fabric at the back.
2. Choose something that will make you look at your best!
You need to understand the pros/cons of the different styles out there, and how they can either be suitable, or not, for you. The goal here is to accentuate your best assets, while drawing attention away from your flaws. You need to feel at your best…like the goddess you truly are.
3. Pick the right size
Make sure you buy the right size. Don’t try fitting into something too tight, as you will feel, and probably also look uncomfortable. Wearing something too loose is also to be avoided as it will affect the way the lingerie item falls on you. Be honest with yourself, and don’t buy if it is not the right size just because it is on sale. Chances are you won’t wear it if it doesn’t fit you well. If the item includes a bra, keep in mind that you should normally use the middle clasp of the back-enclosure. This allows flexibility in case you ever put on/loose a bit of weight.
4. Select the right color(s) for you
While the style and the size are important, one other crucial ingredient is the color. Most women know what colors make them look fabulous. Matching the colors to your hair and eye color will ensure a great fit. When in doubt, try it out. You will quickly be able to tell if this color is for you or not.
5. Choose fabrics soft to the touch
Try to go for fabrics that are luxurious on your skin. You are always safe when buying lingerie made out of silk, satin or velvet, but that doesn’t mean other fabrics should be ignored. Just ensure the fabric used in the nipples area is not too rough, and that you feel comfortable in it.
6. Accessorize your outfit
For the hottest look in town, don’t neglect the accessories when shopping for your newest sexy lingerie outfit. Stockings and high heels can give you a look to die for. Fishnets stays-ups and French seamed stockings are men’s favorites, and they never go out of style. Not only do they give you your legs a nice polished finish, they seem to be a turn on most men.
7. Take Your Time and Have Fun!
Lingerie shopping should be a fun experience. Remain open minded and dare trying on new things. There are tons of sexy options out there… who knows! You may even enjoy a bit of role-playing. Also try putting on a bit of lipstick when trying on some lingerie. This should give a little plus to your look.
Lingerie shopping should not be done when you are rushed. Take your time, try on all the items that you think you may like, and don’t rush into buying something if you’re not sure. You wouldn’t want to invest into an item that will remain at the bottom of your drawer.
