Lingerie 101: The Guide to Buy The Perfect Lingerie

Shopping for lingerie can be overwhelming and intimidating if you are unsure of what you are looking for. It does not matter if this is your first time buying lingerie, most women feel the same as you do.

Nonetheless, that should not be the reason why you should not treat yourself to a piece of pretty lingerie. After all, there is nothing like sexy lingerie to make us feel extra special. So, we have prepared a buying guide for you (especially for first-timers!)

The Guide to Buy The Perfect Lingerie

There are a few main things you need to consider before shopping for the perfect lingerie.

  1. Size and body type
  2. Types of lingerie styles
  3. Shop for occasion
  4. Budget

Size and body type

It is crucial that you get the lingerie that fits your size well. It is just like buying a dress, you do not want a dress that is too big or too small for you. Plus, nobody feels pretty in ill-fitting lingerie.

The size can vary so that is why it important for you to know your size before buying. Moreover, remember to consider your body type as well as there is no one body type in this world. Different women have different body types.

If you are on the curvier side, buy a piece that can emphasize your beautiful curves. For those who have a lean or athletic body, a lace bralette is the most suitable for a flirty, feminine look.

Types of sexy lingerie styles

There is a lot of styles you can choose from, even the types you have never even heard of before. Before you start shopping, you need to know the types of styles available. Some of the most popular styles are:

  • Babydoll -  A short nightdress, typically at knee length with a loose fit, shorter hemline, and often comes with cups for extra chest support
  • Chemise - A short slip dress that typically reaches around mid-thigh. It usually fits snugly especially around the hips and skims the body
  • Bodysuit - A one-piece set that includes a bra and underwear.
  • Corset - A corset clings to the body and accentuates the figure, creating an hourglass silhouette

Personal style

Now that you know the types of styles available, you may dislike some of them and that is okay. You do not have to like every style. The key to feeling beautiful and confident in lingerie is to wear the style that you feel the most comfortable with and one that suits your personal style.

Even if you buy it to surprise your partner, your comfort comes first before anything else. Nevertheless, feel free to explore different options. Who knows, you might find new styles you like.

Shop for occasion

Just like there are different outfits for different occasions, the same applies to lingerie.

For nights when you just want to relax and unwind, a simple bodysuit or chemise is enough as they require little to no effort while still looking great.

However, for special nights such as Valentines or anniversaries, you want to wear something more special. There is no harm in going the extra mile for special nights. We suggest you invest in something that is out of your usual casual style.

Budget for Seductive Lingerie

Lingerie can be expensive for some but there are a lot of stores out there that offer affordable lingerie but high in quality including Wonder 18. Your choice does not always have to be expensive for you to feel comfortable and sexy. The only thing that matters is that you like it.

Pro tip: You can choose to buy matching sets such as matching bra-and-panty set to save a few bucks.
