To find the best lingerie style for you... First ask yourself... Are you bashful or proud of your body? Are you embarrassed showing your bare skin? or are you comfortable on the beach in a skimpy bikini? Make sure you take some time to think about the way you feel about your body before choosing a piece of lingerie. It's good to be bold, but if modesty can't be easily forgotten, you may find that a sexy outfit makes you more inhibited, not less. On the other hand, some women find that lingerie is like a costume. It gives you a chance to dress up and be more wild than you usually are. If you're not sure, choose two pieces of lingerie, one more modest than the other. You can make a last-minute switch if you need to. Never forget that the purpose of lingerie is to have fun by adding spice to your life. You can certainly dress up to please a partner, but make sure it's something you like, too.
Buy lingerie that will play up your best features. Hiding your legs? Choose a long nightgown with spaghetti straps and a deep v neckline. Babydolls and teddies show a lot more leg and bust. Add some gloves or stockings to dress it up a bit. Empire waisted babydolls are useful for hiding your tummy if you feel self-conscious about it, while still showing plenty of leg. And if you want to wear something sexy without revealing too much, there are plenty of elegant lingerie fashions you can wear even to host late night cocktail parties.
