Before heading on a mission to find the perfect and most flattering lingerie, we want you to be equipped with the best tips so that you will feel sexy and confident when wearing the pieces. Let us be your confidante. Read our advice for finding the best lingerie for your body below.
1. Comfort is KeyNo matter how sexy your lingerie looks, there is no way you will want to wear it for a long period of time if it doesn’t fit properly. Chances are you will wear it once and it will sit in the back of your closet never to see the light of day again.
You should become familiar with the term “bust support,” as it delivers maximum comfort. Features such as soft brushed elastic under the bust and elastic contouring the neckline have never been more sought after till now.
Our blog post “Why Wear Bust-Support Sleepwear?” gives you more details.
2. Know Your Body TypeKnowledge is power. Knowing your body type is essential when searching for the perfect lingerie piece. If you are a pear shape, you share your beautiful curves with Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez - lucky you! You will want to pick a flared bias-cut skirt and contrasting colour stretch lace to flatter your curves and balance out your shape on top. A deep neckline and defined waist will dramatize the effect. If you are built more like Ariana Grande, who is petite and compact, look for spaghetti straps and deep V-necks to elongate those never-ending legs. If you are the Kim Kardashian’s of the world, your classic pin-up girl with a nipped waist and full curves are the envy of them all. Feel like a queen in flowing kimono sleeves and a wrapped front neckline to highlight your cleavage. Highlight your best features and show them off girl!
With all the various body shapes in the world, it’s hard to know what looks the best on you. We’ve created a post detailing the best lingerie for your body type to help guide you through our extensive selection.
3. Show Off Your Best FeaturesThe whole point of wearing lingerie besides feeling good about yourself is highlighting your best features. Learn to play to your strengths and you will never go wrong. Focus on what you want to accentuate and then execute it.
Let your significant other’s imagination run wild when they see what you’re wearing from behind. An open back with crisscrossed designed straps will highlight your best feature.
It’s a party in the back.
4. Suit Your StyleWhether it is sweet and sensuous or daring and risqué, your signature look should always suit your style.

5. Size MattersThis one is a given and not exactly a secret. Because not wearing the right size can lead to discomfort and that is definitely not a sexy feeling! It should be the perfect fit and show off your curves. Each brand has a different size chart, so you will need to pay attention before buying your lingerie online. Check out our size chart guide here , which features bust support level. Learn more “Why Wear Bust Support Lingerie.”
6. Colour ChoiceChoosing a colour can be a daunting task.
If your hair colour is dark to light blonde and your skin has a bluish undertone (very fair to very dark), your cool colour family consists of bright blue, jewel tone colours, and lavender. Shocking pink, cerise, ruby, bright rose belong in your warm colour family. Cate Blanchett is your celebrity skin tone doppelganger. Use the colour guide below to make this decision even simpler for you.
7. Right Occasion, Right LingerieWhat are your Friday night plans? Maybe it’s time to feel adventurous and bring your lace camisole, pumps, and favourite skinny jeans out to play. Top the look off with a black leather jacket and you’re guaranteed a fun night out on the town with your girlfriends.
Alternatively, you’re out and about enjoying the day. One of the hottest trends is transforming lingerie into streetwear and who doesn’t like to feel good about their multi-purpose wardrobe? Choose your chemise or gown and bring it from the sheets to the streets to elevate your daytime look. Give it an effortless vibe by pairing it with a white-T or laid-back converse sneakers and you’re good to go. Alexa Chung and Pandora fully embraced this trend with our Glamazon Gown.
And of course, who couldn’t forget slipping into lingerie for a romantic night in with your significant other. Remember, your sweetheart wants you to feel comfortable in your own skin, so own your look! Slip into a sexy lingerie set or take things to the next level with a sheer baby doll- they won’t be able to resist.
