Bridal Lingerie, Wedding Lingerie

Bridal Lingerie

When choosing your bridal lingerie you need to ask yourself, is it to be worn during the day or is it for the wedding night?

In the evening you'll want to slip into something sexier for your new husband when the gown comes off. This lingerie will have more detail such as lace trimmings and ribbons and possibly be made out of a more sheer material.

Corsets, Basques, Waist Clinchers

Corsets

Corsets have been worn to shape the upper body into a particular form. Recently, corsets are being used as tops and not as shaping garments. Corsets slim the body and it's outline, exaggerating the women's breasts, hips and bottom. There are two variants of corset, an underbust which starts under the breasts and continues down towards the hips and then overbust which extends from just beneath the arms toward the hips. Some varieties of corsets also include garters to attach stockings for the complete look. Find yours here >>

Erotic Lingerie

Erotic Lingerie is lingerie that reveals more of your beautiful private areas. Generally there are two styles. Cupless bras and crotchless panties. Cupless bras are also referred to as half-bras, quatercup-bras and open cup bras. They all have one thing in common, they offer minimal great coverage revealing the nipple and areola. The second style of erotic lingerie is the crotchless panty, a normal panty or thong that exposes the most intimate areas, heightening sensitivity and making these a very erotic option to go for. Find yours here >>

Women wear bras for both comfort and for appearance and the panties are broken down into briefs with good coverage around the rear or thongs that reveal more over the buttocks. Suspenders have slings attached each side that allow stocking to be attached. Lingerie sets can be worn underneath more formal clothing such as work dress, making them feel sexy and empower them. Find yours here >>

A bodystocking is a single piece of skin tight material covering the body, legs and occasionally the women's arms. They are mostly made out of see through, opaque or even a lace material revealing every curve and contour of the womens body.

The teddy can also been known as a body or camiknicker. They cover the main body and crotch in one garment and are similar to a bodysuit or one-piece but are more sheer.
