Before heading on a mission to find the perfect and most flattering lingerie, we want you to be equipped with the best tips out there so that you will feel sexy and confident. Let’s roll up
- Comfort is Key
No 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.

- Know Your Body Type
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 beautiful lingerie! 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 more like 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.

- Show Off Your Best Features
The 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 criss-crossed designed straps will highlight your best feature. It’s a party in the back.
If you want to show off your bust, explore deep-necks to draw attention and focus the eye on your best asset. The Pink Deep V Neck Lace Tulle Babydoll will do just that.
One of the most fun assets to show off is your booty! You’re not afraid to show it off. Something sheer and short is sure to do the trick.
- Suit Your Style
If you are angelic and romantic, try a soft pink chemise or a delicate lace bra and panty set. Your closet is filled with pastel tones, lace, and embroidery detailed lingerie which embodies your sweet and ladylike personality.
You closet is the classic “back to basics” wardrobe. You want your lingerie to be functional, neutral toned, and no frills. You believe in less is more and look for quality over quantity.
People turn heads as you walk down the streets and into the office. There is no such thing as over the top and you pride yourself in your sophisticated exterior. Silk and lace are the only textures you will wear in lingerie, as it makes you feel like the luxurious Queen you are.
You are a trend-setter and not afraid to sport loud prints. You are the life of the party at every event and everyone gravitates towards your fun-loving personality. This is shown through lingerie that is body-conscious, bright tones, and a tad revealing so that the eye wanders…
You are not afraid to show off what you got. Confidence radiates from you and it is truly empowering -especially expressed in your lingerie choices. Your lingerie drawer reveals cut out pieces, sheer material, and lingerie that leaves little to the imagination in the best way possible.
- Size Matters
This 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.
- Know Your Textures
There are so many options when it comes to choosing a texture. Never settle for anything less than top quality when lingerie is the closest material to your body. We’ve narrowed it down and shared the key information you need to know before making a decision:
Silk is incredibly luxurious, comfortable, and light weight. It is a little trickier to wash, but it absorbs moisture well and does not stick to the body in warm weather.
Latex is durable, flexible, and temperate neutral. The downside is that it is pricey and does not relieve pressure.
Micro fiber provides many benefits such as being soft, comfortable, breathable and dries quickly. The yarns used to weave the fabric allows for good airflow.
Nylon is a fabric that is ideal for lingerie as it is elastic, non-absorbent, dries quickly and retains its shape. It is also simple to clean making it a good choice for the busy on the go woman.
Cotton is known for being extremely soft and comfortable. It is a natural fiber making it breathable and reduces the risk of bacterial infection.
- Colour Choice
Choosing a colour can be a daunting task. First and foremost, select the colour tones that will complement your skin tone best. If your hair colour is a darker brown or blonde and skin has a greenish or a yellowish undertone then go for oranges, reds, golden yellow, amber, and honey gold in the warm colour family. Your go-to-colours in the cool colour family are warmer greens and blues, and red-purples.
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.
Second, think about the occasion. Is the occasion a sweet and romantic one, a night of passion, or streetwear appropriate? Our recommendation is to own a neutral palette set for daily wear; however, don’t forget about those bright colours and patterns for when you’re feeling extra adventurous. Choose wisely and dress to impress.
- Right Occasion, Right Lingerie
What 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.
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.
