If you’re like me, I used to be pretty clueless about lingerie. I didn’t even own a ‘real’ bra until I was fourteen (I wore sports bras). When I started wearing ‘real’ bras I only bought them at mass retailers until I was about nineteen. When I bought my first good quality bra I remember being really embarrassed that I had been wearing such low quality bras all these years. The support from my new bra was amazing and I went back to the store several times, each time getting fitted by a professional. In one of our earlier articles (Your Bra Questions Answered) we mentioned the importance of getting fitted for a bra every time you buy one. I didn’t realize how important this was until I actually got a fitting and felt the day-to-day difference it made. GET FITTED! It helps! We offer complimentary fitting here at the store.
After you know your bra size you can begin to find the lingerie that fits you and your personality best. To do that you should have a general idea of the types of lingerie out there. The first piece everyone should know about and my personal favorite is of course the Bralette.
While our Cosabella Never Say Never Racerback Bralette isn’t the fanciest of all our lingerie, it is a great piece to have in your wardrobe. I own several myself and wear one almost every day (with a pair of our matching Cosabelle Never Say Never Hottie Lace Hotpant panties of course)!
The next piece everyone should know about are Babydolls. How cute are these?! Babydolls are short, loose fitting nighties that give a sexy look while also being super comfortable. They are also perfect for hiding the tummy since lots of us women aren't comfortable with showing our tummy area, especially after having children. These specific Babydolls are our super cute. Cosabella Juliette Babydoll (on left) and our adorable Dreamgirl Aqua Babydoll (on right).
Bustiers are some of our sexiest lingerie! This Fantasy Rita Bustier & Panty definitely gives off a more daring look. Bustiers are more fitted to your body to define those sexy curves. Our bustiers can even be paired with our Dreamgirl Black Thigh Highs for a polished sexy look.
Corsets, traditionally, are a type of lingerie worn to train waists to be a desired shape and size or even in some cases to support the back. Both bustiers and corsets are more fitted, defining those curves to give you a sexy look that hugs your body. This corset is our most popular Green Lace Corset, and I absolutely love it paired with our Black Floral Lace Choker.
Chemises are luxurious nightgowns that are made from soft silky material, usually paired with lace (and occasionally this drop dead gorgeous Ankle Strap Sandal Heel. Chemises can be form fitting or loose but usually give your body a uniform sexy shape like this adorable Shiny Lycra Chemise.
Teddies are another one of my personal favorites. These super sexy one-piece lingerie are must haves. Teddies, also called bodysuits, are sort of similar to one piece swimsuits. These are usually sheer and made of silk fabric or lace. This two-in-one cutie is a real confidence booster! The Beatrice Teddy is one of our customer favorites. While my personal favorite is our ADORABLE Wet Roses Teddy!
