So here you are – the confetti’s been swept up, a host of happy wedding guests are probably waking up with very sore heads and the horrific dad dancing demonstrated by crazy Uncle Mike is already going viral amongst the wedding party. You’re in receipt of a happy mountain of congratulations cards and gifts, as you sit and fantasise about your new life as a married woman.
These days, some canny brides postpone their traditional honeymoon until a few weeks, or months, after their big day (why not eek out the fun?). Others still favour the tin cans on the car, rattling straight to the airport, or perhaps heading down the proverbial highway for a week (two, three – a month?) of newly married bliss.
One thing’s for certain – in a ‘tale as old as time’, that wedding dress/going away outfit/travel comfies will be coming off at some point as you prepare to celebrate with some good old fashioned conjugal fun. You put a lot of thought into the perfect underwear for your big day, but what about the ‘down to business’ honeymoon lingerie selection that your new ‘other half’ will be gazing at with hot-blooded glee as you reveal all during your honeymoon adventures?
So, what to pack? What message are you giving out here? Do you want to start as you mean to go on or will you reveal the greying smalls that you kind of forgot about updating as you obsessed over seating plans, cake tiers, matching rings and groomsmen’s ties?
Here’s how not to go wrong, no matter what kind of partner or wifey category you fall into…
At the very least, a knock ‘em dead lingerie set for that magical first night of honeymoon bliss is certainly worth the investment. Whatever the setting for your honeymoon, you really should be pushing the boat out at least once. If your lucky other half knows they’ve married a va va voom vixen, then go for something hot and exciting.
Nothing says ‘new bride’ like a bit of lovely, sensuous, come-hither lace. It’s a fun and sexy way to look back to your recent big day, but with a big helping of steamy sultriness. A lace bustier or floral babydoll would do the job nicely – an outfit in itself, underneath your gorgeous going out clothes. A crotchless lace teddy would certainly put everyone in the mood for amorous adventures and would look simply gorgeous on your fabulous form. Or maybe you can set the sexy scene with a fabulous robe and cute panties (requiring a quick change in the en-suite, but worth the two-minute turnaround. A beautiful lace bra and panty set may be the thing for you – sometimes simplicity is all you need.
Of course there’s more to life in the honeymoon suite than lace and with a whole world of modern and traditional fabrics to gently caress your body, your options are almost endless. Fishnet is always cheeky and fun and you could push the boat out with a daring fishnet body stocking that really does signal ‘hot hot hot’. Satin is another traditional fabric that looks classy and gorgeous. A beautiful satin corset or chemise would certainly remind your other half that they’ve ‘picked a fruit from the top of the tree’, or how about a mixture of fabrics, like satin and sheer – with a few cheeky reveals of your assets?
Of course, your average honeymoon last longer than a day, so you have ample opportunity to really show off a whole suitcase full of sensual and seductive lingerie items if you so wish. As the week, or weeks fly by, you might like to play with a few different styles. Remember to be yourself. There is lingerie to suit everyone, from the most complex items to simple and classic designs. Feeling comfortable in your honeymoon lingerie, as you celebrate your wonderful new partnership, is an absolute must. So you could…
a) Keep it sweet and simple: A gorgeous lace bra set – available in a rainbow of colours – is always guaranteed to knock ‘em dead. Or how about a gorgeous teddy (colours and materials galore are available, enabling you to retain a cheeky demure look if you so wish.) A beautiful babydoll, with matching robe would make a stunning statement on the bridal bed. Or you could perhaps go for a retro lingerie set – maybe featuring some curvy high-waisted panties.
b) Come on baby light my fire: Want to go all out red hot? Then the world is really your oyster. Have you considered a strappy or fishnet chemise – perhaps in fiery red – or an out of this world wet look bra set? Maybe a satin bra and suspender combo to channel that inner siren, or maybe you want to see the jaw-dropping effect of a sizzling cut-out bodystocking, perhaps in fishnet, sheer material or lace?
c) Who’s a naughty girl then?: It is your honeymoon after all, so why not throw in a little something to throw some hot and heavy dynamite into a passionate night you’ll never forget? You may have travelled to your destination on a plane, so how about some sexy air hostess roleplay or maybe celebrate your seaside location with a sexy sailor girl creation? If you’ve worn you spouse out by this time then you could even provide some extra care and attention in a naughty nurse outfit! Sparkling Strawberry have a fun-filled selection of role-play and other erotic outfits to fit the bill and your fantasy outfit really wouldn’t take up too much extra room in that all important honeymoon suitcase. Why not peruse Sparkling Strawberry’s “Naughty Girls Only” section for a bit of bondage-inspired frolicking? Leather or wet-look lingerie outfits simply scream ‘naughty’, as do metallic designs like cut-out rompers or strappy crotchless thongs.
If you’re after spice, or sultry, demure or dangerous – make sure your honeymoon is also a lingerie adventure. You are having the time of your life and – along with all those wedding photos that you’ll get to pore over on your return – why not have a honeymoon experience that really makes you look back and (cheekily) smile?
