What Lingeries are Made Of

Definitely not dreams! Unfortunately, a number of women, and men, are not quite familiar with the different materials being used for lingerie. Here’s a primer on them.

There are actually three popular materials being used in lingerie since time immemorial. They include silk, satin and synthetic blends. Of these three, it is silk that is the most popular. It feels cool to the skin upon first touch but gradually warms up with your body heat in a matter of minutes. It is considered to be one of the nicest and softest material to touch human skin. Silk is also a very durable material and is oftentimes used in thongs, panties and chemise.

Satin, on the other hand, is very much like silk. The only difference is that satin tends to be more inexpensive than silk. It also has a shiny finish as opposed to the matte finish of silk. Satin is commonly used as the material for trimmings and bows.

The last material, synthetic blends, is usually made of cotton, rayon and latex. They are great materials for panties and bras as well as see-throughs as they prevent chaffing and irritation. They are often used as used in place of lace and can be worn on a regular basis.

Now that you know your different materials, you would be able to make a more informed choice.

Lingerie Me Not

Oftentimes, when people talk about lingerie, the presumption is always that lingerie should be something worn underneath what you would wear on a regular day. Not man people are aware that you can actually wear certain lingerie types as your main piece of clothing.

  1. Your lace camisole can be worn as a primary office wear when partnered with a blazer or a jacket. The same goes for your chemise, bustier, and corset. You just need to make sure that you keep the jacket or blazer buttoned up.
  2. Combining your bra or camisole or chemise with a sheer blouse or jacket can also be sexy and stylish. Keep in mind, however, that your lingerie should not stand out. This can be done by ensuring that your jacket is of the same shade as your lingerie.
  3. If you need to wear very short skirt, partner it with black stockings or tights. This would tone down the look of your skirt without losing the sexy-ness.
  4. Have a sheer blouse that just looks to plain? Spice it up with a corset! Wear the corset on top of your blouse and, voila! You have an office attire that is stylish and not too sexy.
  5. If you’ve got a conservative looking babydoll that ends way past your waist, then you can pair this with a skinny jeans and some high heels.

So, are you ready to flaunt your stuff at the office?

Till next time, flaunt on!

It’s Kristen Stewart’s Birthday!

I think I can safely say that, one of the most enviable young stars today is Kristen Stewart. She officially turns 20 today. And for those who are sooo addicted to Bella’s look, here are some tips on how you can achieve it even if you are on a budget:

  • Bella’s look is an easy one. All you need is to have some V-neck sweatshirt over a loose skinny jeans. Bella is not  sexy wear so you might need to skip that one.
  • Shoes can either be kegs or converse. The simpler, the better.
  • Your make up should include light brown eye shadow, regular mascara on your lashes, light pink blush over your cheekbones, light lipstick with a lighter shade of lip gloss, and natural looking foundation.
  • It is also a good idea to stock up on chemise and boxers as these are Bella’s prefered sleeping time wardrobe.

So till next time, flaunt on!

Sexy Types of Lingerie

When one talks about lingerie, the first thing that comes to mind is bras and panties. In truth, sexy lingerie are more than that and you need to familiarize yourself with the different terms to be sure that you are getting what you want:

  • Baby Doll – a short gown that features a built-in bra-like cups and a flowing skirt that usually ends at the thigh area. It is usually made of sheer materials like silk or nylon.
  • Teddy – looks like a one-piece swimsuit. The difference, however, lies in the fact that teddys are made of lace, are low-cut and often has a thong back.
  • Bustier – a sexy strapless bra that extends up to the waist and features a garter strap. It usually is made of silk or any shiny material.
  • Camisole – a short top that ends at the waist. It can be worn under a sweater or an open jacket.
  • Chemise – as opposed to the camisole, the chemise ends somewhere above the knees. It usually has spaghetti-like straps that can be adjusted to suit your body length.
  • Corset – the unique feature of corsets is their stiffness and tight fit. The main idea behind corsets is to pinch the waist and lift the breasts in order to create the perfect hourglass figure. It can be adjusted by tying the laces at the back tighter or more loosely.

Now that you know the different types of sexy lingerie, you can now shop online safely.

Accentuate!

If finding the right shoe is hard enough, finding the right lingerie is even harder. After all, you cannot just walk into a store and try on every lingerie that they have, look yourself in the mirror, and then settle for the one that makes you look sexiest.

One of the first things that you need to note down before you even go to a lingerie shop is your bust size. Most lingerie would take into your account your bust size, regardless whether it’s a teddy, a camisole or a chemise, so you would need to make sure that you take the measurement across the fullest part of your breast as well as under your bust.

Do not be afraid to play with colors but make sure that you have the basic. You can never go wrong with a black, white and skin-tone lingerie. This can be quite handy when you need to dress up for a formal affair.

If you have full breasts, go for a lingerie that could provide ample support (think brassiere with underwire). If, on the other hand, you have a small one, go for a lingerie that could provide shape to your body.

For those with wide hips, wearing halter tops can create an illusion of wide shoulders thereby setting your hips at the right proportion.

Lastly, make sure that you choose lingerie in material that you are comfortable with.
