The Ultimate Lingerie Guide for Valentine’s Day
By: Linh Do and Valeria Ramos
With Valentine’s Day approaching, some of us are planning the perfect date. Whether with a significant other, our friends, or ourselves, we tend to focus on the ideal outfit. But what about what’s underneath it all?
Lingerie has always been one of those delightful obsessions we enjoy indulging in. And really, there’s no better time to indulge than Valentine’s Day! The French philosophy captures it best: lingerie is a fabulous tool to enhance the female form and embrace one’s sexuality.
Whether peeking out from under clothing or safely hidden away, there’s undeniable confidence that comes with wearing a sexy set of lingerie. However, shopping for quality undergarments can be daunting, so before purchasing any pieces, we recommend knowing your size and shape to find the most flattering fit.
Lingerie goes beyond just enhancing physical features—it can truly enhance parts of your personality as well. Romantic and sweet? Look for sets with soft colors and embroidery or frills and ruffles. Sultry? Select form-fitting sets with dark-colored satin or lace textures. Keep reading for the ultimate lingerie guide for Valentine’s Day, whatever your plans are!
For the femme fatale
Channel your inner vamp in a romantic, deep-V underwire bustier with rose embroidery and scalloped lace trim. This Valentine’s Day lingerie set pairs best with a glass of cabernet and a candle-lit date.
For the show-stopper
Agent Provocateur, Fleur du Mal, and Edge O’Beyond are some brands that provide sexy lingerie with a “wow” factor. For something extra special, check out Estigmas, a handmade lingerie shop on Etsy that offers jaw-dropping sets like this one.
For the homebody
The relationship a woman has with herself is undoubtedly the most important. Sometimes there’s nothing better than staying in and pampering yourself with a face mask and binge-watching a good Netflix show. To stay comfortable while maintaining some flair, opt for pieces that won’t restrict movements such as silk slips, teddies, or pajama sets. A major upgrade from the normal oversized t-shirt, right?
For the party-goer
A girls’ night out calls for daring choices in lingerie, especially sets that can be shown off as outerwear. The bodysuit has the advantage of being versatile and convenient, a perfect concoction for a night of fun. Despite their popularity, straps and lace on bodysuits remain classic and incredibly flirty.
For women who prefer a two-piece set, a soft cup bralette and matching underwear are foolproof for any occasion. Spice it up with a fun pattern and you’re all set!
