I vividly remember opening my mom’s closet and falling in love with her long nightgowns made of silk & lace. She had a particular white night gown that was so beautifully made, it looked like a wedding dress. From that time on, my love for intimate apparel has grown even more.
What I love most about intimate apparel is that it’s exceptionally feminine and sensual. Made mostly with silk, lace and see-through materials, once put on you’ll immediately feel more seductive. There’s even studies showing that wearing sexy underwear underneath your clothes boosts confidence levels!
Even though I might not wear night gowns every night, I tend to throw my kimono style robe over my pajamas that I got while I was in Thailand a few years back. The feel of silk against my skin is just a great feeling.
No matter your shape or size, there’s something for everyone. Always choose pieces that will accentuate your best features, and make you feel & look the best. Opt for more refined styles and cuts and choose colors that are most flattering for your skin tone.
Good intimate apparel doesn’t have to be expensive. Even with a smaller budget you can find something that will make you look like a million bucks. Some of my favorite intimate apparel stores are on the more affordable side, such as La Vie En Rose, Oysho and of course Victoria’s Secret. If you’re budget allows you La Perla, Agent Provocateur and Journelle have exceptional pieces.
What are your thoughts on intimate apparel and lingerie? Do you like wearing them or do you prefer something more laid back?
