Quick Guide to Lingerie

Quick Guide to Lingerie

You walk into a store and you see racks of lingerie. You may start to feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of styles, colors, material, there is just so much to choose from. I am here to break down the basics of lingerie!

Babydoll

Babydoll dresses are a light and flowing nightdress that is normally cut off just above your thigh. It tends to have delicate straps over the shoulders that lead down to just above the breasts. One common element to most babydoll's is the beautiful flowing material, sometimes sheer that give it a really flirty and girlie look.

Chemise

Chemises are quite similar to the babydoll dress but it's not as flowing and is more straight and body hugging. It's a mid thigh design made from light materials. Generally it's more conservative, reveals less and finishes just around the knee area. The chemises neckline tends to differ from one chemise to another but they are all straight and and simple. They tent to have ornate embroidery around the neckline that gives it a very feminine feel.  You'll see there are ones with sequins, some with ribbons and some even sheer material.

Two Pieces

Lingerie isn't just matching a sexy bra and panty together. It's so much more than that, it's the art of style and opulence. Lingerie sets can be bought as separates or as full sets. Typically, a lingerie set will include a matching bra and brief or thong. It's not as simple though, there are many types of bras, such as balconette, push up, soft cup strapless etc.

Teddy/Bodysuit

Even though a bodysuit offers more coverage than two separate pieces, it's somehow sexier. Probably because it's got "special occasion" written all over it, making it wedding night (or Valentine's Day, or your anniversary—you get the idea) perfection.

Bodystocking

It's all in the name! Bodystocking are made of fine stretchy materials that hug every inch of your body, from top to toe. There are many different designs ranging from crotchless bodystockings, low cut necklines, fishnet bodystockings and lace bodystockings with full arms and decorated on the edges.
