Stepping up your Game with Lingeries


Lingeries is a category of women’s clothing including at least undergarments (mainly brassieres), sleepwear and lightweight robes.

They are made up of lightweight, stretchy, smooth, sheer or decorative fabrics such as silk, satin, Lycra, charmeuse, chiffon or lace. These fabrics can be made of natural fibres like silk or cotton or synthetic fibres like polyester or nylon.

  1. Bustiers

If you would love to pop out your boobs, a bustier is perfect for you! It’s strapless and sleeveless and often worn as a standalone sexy top.

It’s similar to a corset; the bustier is a fitting garment that boosts up your bust by tightening around the upper midriff. You tighten a bustier using corset-like ties, which also gives your waist a slightly slimmer shape.

If you want to light up your wedding night or birthday party, wear this lingeries to accentuate your cleavage and flatter your waist. It is an extended bra top that usually covers all or most of the torso, though there are bustier bras that end well above the belly button. For an ultra-bridal look, go white and lacy.

If you’re looking to pump up the sex appeal, go for a strappier style in black or red. Want something extra racy? Try attached garters, so you can add thigh-high stockings.


A chemise hangs straight from the shoulders to give a uniform shape. If you like loose-fitting clothing, a chemise might be that perfect one for you! It’ simple short slips dress that can be paired with a matching bikini or thong. Chemises usually fit snugly and skim the body, hitting around mid-thigh

This loose garment is a great way to make bedtime much sexier, as silk chemises make lovely nightgowns and play up your feminine side. Some chemises are so stylish; they almost look like mini-dresses you can wear out, though some ladies do.

  1. Babydoll

On the other end of the spectrum is the colourful babydoll, which might be one of the least practical pieces of lingeries out there. Babydolls have a looser fit, a shorter hemline and often have cups for extra chest support.

If you’re looking for something comfortable to wear to sleep that’s still got a bit of glamour, go for a bright babydoll. Babydolls have a looser fit, a shorter hemline and often have cups for extra chest support.

  1. Teddy

A teddy is an all-in-one piece that fits like a bodysuit or one-piece swimsuit, but it is typically sheerer than these types of garments. A teddy is a playing type of bodysuit. Depending on how adventurous you are in the bedroom, there are many types of teddies you can choose from.

Teddies often don’t make it outside the bedroom, but you could dress up a more conservative teddy with a skirt for a night out at the club if you wish.

Like bodysuits, teddies are another one-and-done piece of lingerie; unlike bodysuits, they’re meant to stay in the bedroom.

  1. Bodysuit

These bodysuits can certainly be worn alone, but if you’re feeling daring, throw a pair of high-waisted jeans over a bodysuit and wear it out to the bar. Though similar to Teddy, it provides more coverage with thicker fabric. And 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 perfection

Some bodysuits can be paired with pants or skirts as a top that never needs to be tucked in; the racier ones are a fun alternative to lingerie sets with multiple pieces.

Bodysuits offer some shaping and as well its support breast. The material can range from lace to sheer to everything in between, so you’ll be able to find something as cute as it is comfortable.

The Big Question: Do women use lingeries merely to grab men’s attention?
