Beginner's Guide To Buying Sexy Lingerie In India
There are many different kinds of lingerie available in the market. However, not everyone would look good wearing the same thing. For this reason, we have come up with a guide to help you find the perfect bedroom wear that will help make you feel confident and sexy in no time.
To make things easier, this guide will be split into structured and unstructured lingerie. The different types of knickers and stockings will also be included in this article.
Lingerie for Different Body Types
Each and every one of us has a unique body type, which means that a garment that looks good on one person won’t necessarily look as ravishing on another. For this reason, it is important to pinpoint these different body types and what types of garments look good on them. Of course these are just guide lines, not to be taken too strictly because it can’t be stated that certain types of wear would only look good at certain types of bodies.
Pear shaped - This body type is composed of a small top and a big bottom, much like a pear. These bodies would look particularly good in chemises, babydolls, or robes.
Upside Down Pear - These are the people who have wide upper bodies but small lower ones. They would look lovely wearing camisoles, cami sets, or bustiers.
Hourglass - These proportionally equal body styles would look good on any lingerie style.
Camouflaging Problematic Areas
Not everyone is as blessed as the supermodels on TV. You will always find a flaw in your body, and that’s okay. But sometimes it would be nice if you knew how to mask it a little.
Hips - If you think you have big hips, purchase garments that are loose on the hips such as chemises, babydolls, or robes.
Buttocks - If your buttocks are the problem for you, choose nightwear that doesn’t cling to them, such as long gowns, cami sets, or chemises.
Stomach - To hide a bigger stomach, purchase flowing garments such as babydolls.
Choosing the Lingerie According To Your Personality
Once you’ve gone over the basics of body types and sizes, the next most important factor to consider is your personality. You want to buy underwear that suits you and makes you feel confident. To do this, you must think about what kind of personality you have. Are you feminine? Sporty? Flirty? Each of these corresponds to a certain type of wear, and it is up to you to find out which work best for you.
These are usually body-sculpting and figure-hugging, which makes them perfect for a classic seductive look. They can enhance your body shape, which will not only make you feel confident, but sexy at the same time.
Basque – This kind of wear is similar to the corset or bustier but has cups that are made from lacier materials, which actually makes it look more like an extended bra. These are meant to enhance your waist, and some even have plastic boning to enhance your shape.
Bustier – Bustiers are very similar to corsets but are not waist reducing. These are actually the best bet for people who like the corset’s appeal but don’t want to change their shape.
Corset – Corsets are generally designed to boost your bust and make your waist look smaller. They usually cover the bust but there are others, called underbust corsets, that don’t.
Corselette – Corselettes are also very similar to corsets in the sense that they enhance your bust while smoothing your stomach to your bum. These are made possible by the plastic boning or elastics that comes with the garment.
Girdle – Girdles are classic garments that smoothen and shape both the waist and the hips for a fuller effect. Some girdles come with suspender straps so that you can attach them to your stockings.
Merry Widow – Merry widows are similar to basques, except that they are cupless and have built-in suspenders. These are great for those who have fetishes and are more risky in their lingerie.
These are usually playful and floaty, which makes them more flirtatious but less restrictive options for garments.
Babydoll – Babydolls, such as our 2 Piece Lace baby are nightwear with cups and a skirt that flares out from under them. These do not only enhance your bust and show your legs but also draws attention away from your stomach.
Flyaway – Flyaways are a lot like babydolls except that they are more revealing. If you are confident with showing off your tummy, then this garment, which usually has a split in the front or the back, might be just for you.
Chemise – Chemises are great for all body shapes because they are loose fitting but with gentle tailoring. These can even be used as night or loungewear.
Cami Sets – Cami sets are simply camisoles sold with matching shorts or knickers, which usually emphasize both the bust and the bottom. Remember that a floating cami will feel different from a figure-hugging one, so choose wisely.
Teddy – Teddies, also known as playsuits, are one-piece lingerie that combines both vest tops and shorts. These are best used for athletic or curvy figures, and can range from fairly covering to extremely exposing.
Body – Bodies are like the traditional one-piece swimsuits, which combine a vest top and bikini style briefs. These are best for those who want to show off their legs and curves but in a one-piece garment.
Knickers are essentially the easiest and cheapest way to feel sexy. Like lingerie, they range from full coverage to not-so-covered.
Briefs & Shorts – The most basic piece of knickers, these cover both your front and rear parts fully.
G-String – A G-String is like a thong except the width of the fabric on your rear is barely there—usually just a thin strip of fabric, which gives it a very revealing bedroom look.
Thong – Thongs are like G-strings with wider strips of fabrics on the rear. Instead of showing your whole bum, the thong only shows your butt cheeks, which is not only erotic for the onlooker but also the wearer.
Lingerie: Hoisery & Stockings
Pantyhose & Stockings make every lingerie look sexy. Here are some types and how they work:
Hold-Ups – As suggested by their names, these thigh-high stockings have elastic or gripping silicone tops, which allow them to stay in place. These tops are usually trimmed with ribbon, lace, or PVC.
Suspender Stockings – Unlike hold-ups, suspender stockings need to be strapped onto a corset to stay up. When buying these, make sure that they match your corset, or you will end up looking all wrong.
Suspender Belt – Also called garter belts, suspender belts are belts where suspender stockings are attached when you don’t have a corset.
Bodystocking – These stretchy one-piece garments are made from the same fabric as tights. They usually cover up most parts of the body but the fabric, and sometimes, the crotchless types, make it all the more sexier.
