Your Guide to Lingerie

Lingerie is beautiful, but shopping for these garments can be a little bit intimidating. For some people, the experience of shopping for lingerie can take them to new exotic places. There are so many types of lingerie including Teddies, Garter belts, Balconettes and Chemises. There is a lot more to consider than just bras and underwear. If you have a special occasion coming up, here are some tips to help you find something classy that will give you confidence. Whether this is your first time buying lingerie or you wear it as a daily routine, this guide will cover some essential tips.

If it’s your first time, it’s a good idea to visit a local boutique for a fitting. At an independent lingerie shop, there will be knowledgeable salespeople who have expertise at fitting. When going through this process, don’t become defensive about your size. You might end up finding out that your correct size is not what you thought, or it might have changed. Lingerie and bra fitting is about finding sizes and styles that look great and fit well. Most of the support of a bra comes from the band, so make sure that there is no gaping around the cup and the band feels snug against the back.

For women who are new to lingerie, it’s best to begin your wardrobe with sets rather than individual bras or panties. Essential choices are a plunge bra, a T-shirt bra and an unlined lace demi. If you’re just starting out, don’t be tempted to go right for the iconic three-piece garter set until you develop a better sense of taste. You will wear these often, so take care when washing and storing them. If you’re more experienced at wearing lingerie, you can choose pieces with more wow factor. It’s exciting to choose a sleek bodysuit, scant bottoms or an elaborate set with suspenders. This favors the unexpected over practicality, and you don’t need to spend a lot to get a dramatic effect.

Another important factor when choosing lingerie is the fabric quality and the construction of the garment. A look of quality goes a long way toward the aesthetic appeal of the clothing, just like a good dress or outfit. In this regard, elaborate designs, beautiful lace patterns and unique details make a piece stand out. If you find something that you instantly fall in love with, buy it. Don’t be afraid to indulge yourself because that’s what lingerie is about.

The best way to take care of lingerie is hand washing. Although this might seem like tiresome work, it’s not. These small pieces don’t take much time and effort to wash by hand, and the effort is well worth it. For best results, find a specialty washing liquid for lingerie. Gently swirl the lingerie and squeeze out the water carefully. Lay the pieces flat to dry. Special lacy pieces should be hung on hangers, while bras can be stored in a dresser drawer. Never place your lingerie in a dryer.
