5 Lingerie Buying Tips

Tip#1 – Guys, do you feel just a smidge embarrassed about going into a lingerie store? Try shopping online. For one it’s discreet. For another, it gives you a chance to view an entire line of products before you make a purchase.

Tip #2 – What about buying lingerie if you are full-figured? Full figures can be very attractive. Try to find items that flatter your shape and are comfortable. It’s better to wear lingerie that shows off your curves rather than hiding them away. Emphasize your curves and shape rather than try to cover everything up!

Tip #3 – For the couples, why not buy lingerie together? Lingerie shopping can be fun for both. Especially when a woman sees her partner is really enjoying the show, as she models different items. Make a date of it!

Tip #4 – What’s the best place to buy lingerie? It may seem ideal to shop in a standard store where you can try on items, but that’s not always practical. That’s when online shopping comes in handy. Before you fill up your virtual shopping cart, know your size and to avoid disappointment, be sure to read what materials your garment is made of. Lace thongs are very different than leather ones.

Tip #5 – One more for the guys. Remember fellas the lingerie is for her, not you. Since she’s wearing it, keep her comfort level in mind. Choose pieces that say “I love you,” “I adore you,” “I desire you,” not “I want to freak you up and down.”

Babydolls and Chemise

Babydolls and chemise are similar styles. They are both short and fitted pieces of lingerie that are typically modest. To add a hint of mystery or seduction, you can choose a chiffon babydoll or chemise. They are perfect for a romantic evening, or a night of feeling pampered.

If you feel like flirting, a babydoll is the way to go. Babydolls are fitted in the bust with a full skirt. As a result, it’s important to get the bust size right when purchasing a babydoll. Sometimes babydolls have a stretch bodice that makes it easier to size for full figured women. Babydolls are well suited to women with a pear shape as they hug your curves on top and fall gently on your hips.

Chemise
Chemise, on the other hand, are better suited to a straight figure as they are cut really close. When you want to feel luxurious, a beautiful silk or charmeuse chemise will feel soft on your skin and hug your curves. For more comfort, you can choose a stretch chemise and still be pampered.

Sexy Lingerie Shopping Tips For Men

What you need to know before buying your sweetheart very revealing lingerie…

In case you haven’t realized it – women love to feel sexy. Every woman loves to feel like she’s the most beautiful woman in the world – and you can certainly help. But before you go haring off to buy her some sexy little item like crotchless panties, stop and take a minute to think about whether this is what she really needs to make her feel like a sex goddess. After all, if your woman doesn’t feel sexy wearing what you buy her, she’s not going to feel good about herself or about your gift… and you know how that scenario goes.

Here’s your first tip on what to consider when buying very revealing lingerie for your woman.

It may surprise you to learn that very revealing lingerie is the most popular type of lingerie that women buy for themselves. Many women have discovered the secret confidence that wearing very revealing lingerie under regular clothes can give them. And men have also cottoned on to buying very revealing lingerie as gifts on special occasions. But taking a little care to personalize your gift will go a long way to making sure it evokes the right response.

Do you know her favorite colors? Some women look great in black, but others feel sexier in silky pastel-colored lingerie. Lilac, pink and blue are very popular lingerie colors, but you’ll find a whole range of gorgeous and flattering colors in any good quality lingerie store.

If you’re not sure which colors she prefers, sneak a peak at her current revealing lingerie collection to find out. We’re not talking about her regular bras and panties, which may be in standard colors like black, white or beige, but her ‘special’ items. And if she doesn’t yet have any, here’s your chance to help her get in touch with her inner vixen. White or lilac might be a good choice for a first revealing lingerie gift.

Next, what type of lingerie would she prefer? Not every woman is comfortable wearing lingerie that reveals her entire bottom, so choosing a revealing pair of lacy boy short panties instead of a thong might be just what she needs to feel gorgeous.

Other examples of subtle yet very revealing lingerie are:
* a baby doll nightgown
Flower & leaf tie-up baby doll
* a chemise (which is a light nightgown that clings to the body in all the right places)
Back in stock - VERTICAL STRIPE CHEMISE
* a full or half slip (petticoat)
* a bustier/corset, which looks like a long, strapless bra that provides extra lift to the breasts
Gorgeous Strapless Fire Lady Vinly Bustier
* a teddy (as in the image above)

The key elements to look for are:
1. Comfortable fabric. Silk or satin feels much nicer against the skin than lace, which can scratch.
2. A flattering color. Choose either her favorite color of one you think she’ll look good in.
3. Revealing but not tasteless – unless you already know her preferences lean towards racy.

The important thing is, when it comes to very revealing lingerie, you must really know the woman you’re buying for. Choose something that she can be comfortable wearing, both physically and psychologically, yet will inspire her to feel sexier than she does in everyday circumstances.

Hot trend: Corsets and Bustiers

If you are like me, your knowledge of a corset is some brutal device forced upon women in ye olden days, or a memory of Kate Winslet’s mom in Titanic painfully strapping her into one. Ouch! But in recent years, the corset has slowly lost its death grip on our mid sections and has become the hottest trend. You can find all the hippest stars sporting them, from Jessica Simpson to Beyonce.
It’s quite easy to incorporate it into your style. During the day, layer one under your jacket or favorite v-neck sweater. Or at night wear one with a slim fitting skirt. Don’t forget to jazz it up with some fabulous accessories like jewelry and purse. Think you have what it takes to step out in corset style?
Corsets and bustiers are the darings women’s lingerie. They are very similar in style, as both are boned and fitted on the torso. They have a very slimming effect on your figure. The major difference between a corset and a bustier is that bustier often have built in cups for support whereas corstes do not.

Corsets and bustiers do not size the way clothes do, they size like a bra. You usually have a round the back measurement and a cup measurement, just like a bra but you are recommended to give yourself one size more around the back allowing for extra movement. The size noted for our corsets and bustiers is the band size, so if you where a 40DD, your bustier or corset size would be 40. If you want some extra room, you would order a 42. We also have many corsets and bustiers that are made of stretch satin or lace. These provide extra room without having to go up a size. They are also very comfortable.

Corsets and bustiers
are often fitted with hook and eye catches that run up the back of the garment or sometimes they are laced up. They are often made to sit just above the bust to below the hips so that you can easily attach garters and stockings to them.

In Victorian times corsets were all the rage. They were worn by all women but not in the sense that they are today. In those days you did not leave without looking your best. Your best being your slimmest. Corsets held in every extra pound that you had.

Today, you can choose to wear a corset under a suit or clothing for that extra sensual feel or to provide extra lift. Corsets and bustiers are especially helpful as bridal lingerie under the dress, as they provide the slimming effect and lift that you want for that special occasion. You can also wear this lingerie for a special rendez vous with someone special.
