Some of the friends I eventually meet in the campus tell me they like my blog because “they never took the time to think about lingerie and they don’t understand a lot about it”. So, I thought I could make a small guide to the ones who would like to get introduced to a whole new world of loving what you wear under your clothing.
Yes, it’s a small list of items you might want to search for if you feel like you should love yourself and your underwear drawer a little more. After all, what’s not to love about it? Lingerie can make you feel good even on your worst days, it can work like the ultimate fantasy to yourself. And, even though this is not the main purpose of the pieces in my opinion, it can make you confident enough to be even more special to someone else.
But enough talking, let’s get to the unders. Here’s what you need if you actually never thought about undergarments.
Plain bras and panties.
We all have those clothes that are a little see-through, and sometimes we just don’t want anyone to notice that we are wearing something great underneath them. Even the most glamorous women have plain -usually nude, but you might want to have it in black, blue, red…- bra and panties (apart from Dita von Teese, I guess, as she is the godess of glamour).
A perfect-fitting bra means the underwire lies on your ribs, the back doesn’t run up or goes loose and the cup is totally filled. This will certainly get you comfortable during the whole day, making you feel nicely dresses. There is nothing worse than that feeling you get when something is not correctly fitted. Oh, and I guess you all can tell when your panties fit or not. They must be lying comfortably against your hips, not too tight!
Everyone has it’s on concept of fun, that’s for sure. But, in my opinion, every woman should have that pair of undergarments which make her laugh -or at least smile a lot- when in front of the mirror.
Bright colors are a good option for those who might feel that prints like the comic book one are not their style. But having something to smile for is essential to a happy existence. Well, at least that’s my motto.
Lace is classic. Lace is innovating. Lace is for everyday. Lace is for a special occasion. Anyway you want your lingerie set to be, you can put some lace in it. And you should! It feels good on the skin, it makes you feel wrapped up in something beautiful and it can be worn everyday. I never got tired of lace, that I can guarantee you.
Besides, if you take the time to really look into what you are about to buy, you can find different types of lace. Every single one seem to have a different pattern and each better than the last! Of course, you can find laces like the chantilly one -very fine and delicate- or the guipure one -heavy, without a net-.
Sleeping can be fun, I’m pretty sure you know that. But waking up in a nice gown or comfortable pijamas is an amazing feeling, and maybe by getting a beautiful piece you can make that monday morning better. Notice I didn’t say you’d make the monday morning good, but being wrapped in silk can be good even when you are hating the alarm clock!
Just be sure not to get too cold or too hot clothes, because you must be very relaxed to have a good night! Having pijamas for winter and camisoles for summer can be a good option!
You wear it, everyone wears it. But choosing some good tights, hold ups or stockings can be very important for an outfit, as they are going to be shown. Remember to never wear torn up hosiery! It makes you look poorly dressed even if you are wearing haute couture.
Maybe you like the ones with patterns, or maybe you prefer thigh-highs with garter belts. That you will figure out by trying them on, and looking at yourself. And it’s an amazing thing to do: observe! See what fits you best and what makes you look even better.
After bath, or just before sleep. Maybe on that lazy sunday when waking up. In every occasion, having a robe or two can be a nice way to be dressed without being dressed.
I just love chilling in my robes, specially the satin ones. They feel beautiful on the mirror and soft on the skin. Lovely!
Now, that’s hard because it’s very personal. In my opinion, you should have in your closet something that makes you feel like a sex godess just by putting it on. Even if you don’t like wearing it under common clothes, even if you don’t have a partner. The whole aspect of “prohibited” that sex has is good, in some way, because the thrill of doing something you are not allowed to, or being a bad girl is positive (just in some cases, let’s please not go breaking any laws).
So, it’s a psychological exercise, this one. Think about what piece of lingerie you would put and instantly be sexual. No, not sensual, really sexual. Maybe it’s just a bright red set, maybe it’s something with restrains, or leather. Anything you want, just let yourself admire the naughty from inside.
What do you think of my suggestions? Would you add something else? What are your must have lingerie pieces?
