Every woman needs to own some sexy lingerie. It doesn’t matter if she has a boyfriend or a girlfriend or not – wearing cute lingerie just makes you feel confident and good about yourself! The trick, though, is finding out what kind of lingerie is right for your body type. Are you a teddy kind of a girl? Or do you prefer a corset? What about a bralette?
If you’re new to the lingerie game, you might be overwhelmed by all the options available. Sure, you’ve got a bra, but what is a g-string and why is it not on your guitar? If this sounds like you, don’t worry, girl, we’ve got you covered.
Below, we give you five different types of lingerie to choose from with recommendations based on body type and goals (you know, like how long you want to keep the lingerie on before someone takes it off for you, wink wink). No matter which style (or styles!) you choose, we know you’ll feel like a queen.
The Best Lingerie for Every Body Type
If you are well-endowed in the breast department, a lot of women will see you as being blessed. You yourself, though, might feel a bit cursed. Large breasts are an asset, of course, but sometimes they make finding the perfect outfit a pain. Sure, you can get some fantastic cleavage in a nice bra, but what about the bottom half? If you have narrower hips and a thinner waist, you may feel disproportionate. But don’t worry, there is a solution!
While a busty gal can rock almost any bra she wants on the top, she’s going to want to stick with panties that have a higher, thicker waistband for the bottom. This will help to balance out the look, so that all of the focus doesn’t go directly to her upper half. We like the Lalagen Women’s Lace Flower Sexy Cutout Lingerie pictured to the left. The high-waisted panties draw attention to your midsection and bottom, letting it shine without getting overshadowed by the top (which will also be looking hot in this spicy red number!).
For the women with A-cups, I have one word for you: bralettes!
Some may think that ladies with smaller breasts aren’t as blessed as their busty counterparts, but this is simply not true! In fact, it can be even be an asset to have smaller breasts, as it means that you don’t need extra support for them. This is why bralettes are so perfect for women with this body type. Bralettes are pretty and feminine and lacy, but they don’t provide the support of an underwire or any padding. Women with larger breasts might need that support, but not you! You can wear all the gorgeous, soft, lacy bralettes you want without ever worrying about the pain that comes with not getting enough support. We recommend this YIANNA Lace Bralette. It is made of a breathable mesh fabric to keep you cool and comfortable all day and features a deep, plunging neckline that is extremely alluring.
An hourglass figure has historically been one of the most coveted female body types, so if you have one, you’re lucky! With this body type, your hips and breasts have roughly the same measurement, meaning that your waist is the smallest part of your body. To show off the hourglass shape, you should draw attention to that narrower waistline, and you can do this by buying lingerie that comes with a garter belt. The garter belt draws the eye to your waist, which then makes whoever is lucky enough to be looking at you notice the lovely curves of your hourglass.
One of our favorite sets is the sofsy Mesh Garter Belt. It comes in several different colors, and features clips to hold up your stockings (stockings sold separately). The belt is timeless and classic, and is made from material that won’t irritate your skin when you wear it. A garter belt that looks great AND feels great too? Sign us up!
Pear-shaped women are smaller on the top, and curvier at the bottom (like a pear, get it?). For this reason, experts recommend drawing the eye downward, to flaunt those hips and thighs. The best way to do this is a corset with a plunging neckline. The deep V works like an arrow, drawing the eyes downward to the narrow waist, wide hips and full booty. But don’t let the word “corset” scare you! Not all of them are medieval torture devices meant to create an unnaturally narrow waist and keep women from breathing while they wear tight dresses (although you can find those too, if you really want them). Lingerie corsets are not as tight, and they use your natural curves to create an hourglass-esque shape.
We recommend the Tonight Corset Boned Corset. It laces up the back (so you can make it as loose or as tight as you want), and comes in several beautiful, sexy colors. It even comes complete with G-string panties and matching fishnet stockings!
Lingerie That Looks Good on Everybody’s Body
No matter what body type you have, you should embrace it – you are beautiful! And you should feel beautiful as often as possible. One of the best ways to do that is to wear lingerie that makes you feel sexy and confident and just plain gorgeous. The best piece of lingerie for all body types is the baby doll. It might sound like something cutesy or for little girls, but don’t be fooled by the name! Baby doll lingerie can be extremely sexy, in large part because it emphasizes your best parts while hiding any problem areas you may have. The top accentuates your chest and cleavage while the bottom fans out more loosely, making it a great choice for gals who are feeling a bit insecure about their midsection.
One of the best baby dolls we have found on Amazon is the Velvet Kitten Sexy Fever Babydoll. It has padding in the top to push up your breasts and give you cleavage that’s to die for, and it features a delicate ruffled texture that makes it both adorable and provocative. It is just see-through enough to be alluring and it includes a matching G-string to complete the look. Put it on and stand back, your partner will be blown away!
As we conclude our list, remember that these suggestions are just that: suggestions. While bralettes may look amazing on smaller-chested women, for example, that doesn’t mean they can’t look incredible on a woman with larger breasts as well! Don’t feel that you have to only buy the lingerie style recommended for your body type. Try them all and find out which one looks best on you! The most important thing is that you wear something that helps you embrace the goddess that we all know you are.
