Historically the word lingerie is associated with France. Indeed lingerie is a French word and most people would agree that the French language is romantic and sexy. Lingerie comes in many different forms including, teddies corsets panties, negligee and bustiers. There has been a huge development into lingerie, particularly plus size lingerie as the nations waistline broadens and people’s tastes change.
Lingerie is undoubtedly so popular because it shows off a woman’s body in such a way that it is erotic and seductive. Carefully chosen lingerie can really make a woman look beautiful as it plays up her best features and carefully hides those she doesn’t like. A typical example of this is a corset or bustier. This item will pull the lady in at the waist and push up her bust. With high legged panties and hold up lace stockings, most men would agree that this look is extremely sexy and seductive. Most women are unhappy with their stomachs, particularly after pregnancy and likewise their boobs. A corset happily tackles both these problems, leaving the woman feeling like she did when she was eighteen! Hold up stockings hide that unwanted cellulite and high legged knickers will make the legs look longer whilst discreetly covering the ladies behind. A woman who feels beautiful feels confident and her partner is sure to benefit from that!
If on the other hand your shape is more boyish with a flatter chest and no waist then frilly tie side g-string and a lacy push up bra will bring out your feminine side, drawing the eye from the waist to your more intimate areas.
Sexy shapewear is also very popular. Long gone are the days of wearing big “hold me in” pants. Nowadays there are some beautiful lacy corsets that pull in the stomach, hips and love handles but look sensational. No more having to sneak off to the bathroom to change before a night of passion!
No one size of lingerie will fit or suit all women. You really have to pick your style according to your shape. Buy lingerie for the shape you have, not the shape you want to have. Lingerie comes in so many different sizes that you really don’t have to worry about finding something to fit you.
