One of the most romantic days of the year is almost here, St. Valentine’s Day. A day to declare new love or to celebrate love and romance with a loved one. Lovers express their love for one another in many ways; a card or gift of flowers or chocolates, a dinner or a more exotic experience. Of course, there are lots of ways to do it and lingerie can play a big part, whether as a gift or as something to enhance the whole experience. Why lingerie? Well think of chocolates without the box, or flowers without the bow, or a gift without the gift-wrap. See what I mean? But “where do I start?” I hear you say. Well look no further, here’s my helpful guide with lots of hints and tips to help you choose the best lingerie for Valentine’s Day – for whatever you have planned.
Firstly, ask yourself some questions: Who are you buying for? A long-term partner, a new love in your life or someone you are trying to impress? What do you (they) find attractive? Is it for an occasion such as a romantic weekend away, a night out, or some bedroom fun? Are you wanting to try something different, perhaps trying some playwear to spice it up? Or are you thinking of popping ‘The’ question this Valentines Day? Once you’ve got that decision made you can then start to think about your choice of Valentine’s lingerie – style, colour, fabric and so on…
This depends mostly on the occasion and the effect you’re looking for. Are you planning a romantic night in or painting the town red? This will be important because if it’s a night out, you’ll want to make sure the garment is comfortable to wear for the entire night. Whereas if it’s for a night in, comfort and longevity won’t necessarily be as important, as I’m guessing the lingerie won’t be on long enough!
It doesn’t have to be red lingerie. Valentine’s day has become all about reds and pinks, but why not try something less traditional such as different shades of blues – pastel blues, aquamarine, sapphire and teal; shades of purple – plums, aubergine, lilac and merlots; or what about creams and golds, the list is endless really, so maybe it’s time to think outside the box?
Well this depends on the look you want to achieve. Sensual satins feel luxurious and smooth against the skin? Enticing see through fabrics such as mesh and delicate romantic lace exude elegance and beauty. Or would you prefer raunchy fishnet or naughty wet look, PVC and leatherette fabrics for a super sexy heated bedroom encounter?
Here’s a few ideas to get you inspired…
Lace and sheer fabrics are regarded by many as the most romantic. Seductive and see through, lacey garments can be such a turn on as they can be so revealing but with just enough hidden to arouse the imagination. Lace is often combined with chiffon, mesh and sheer fabrics so you get the romantic touch while benefitting from features of othe fabrics too. Lace top stockings for example. Sheer can be used on its own to create floaty lingerie – perfect for babydolls. The romantic connotations of lace and sheer are strong enough to invoke a feeling of romance in most styles of lingerie. Why not try a seductive lace or sheer teddy, a lace trimmed sexy sheer chemise, a see-through lace lingerie dress or even a daring lace bodystocking?
