Investing in some gorgeous lingerie shouldn’t just be about what he’ll think. It should be about making you feel sexy, confident, and comfortable. Yes, comfortable – as much as possible anyway. Here are my 5 tips for better fitting lingerie:
2. When it comes to bra fit, the most common mistake women make is increasing the band size instead of the cup size. For example, if you try on a 34C and it feels tight, the mistake is moving to a 36C instead of a 34D. See the difference? Try increasing the cup size before the band size. Don’t change band size unless you are unable to get a few fingers under the band of your bra.
3. If you’d like more control from your shapewear, don’t decrease the size! Instead, look for the option that offers a higher level of control such as light control, moderate control, firm control and extra firm control. Going down to a smaller size will mean it won’t fit properly and may be painful and uncomfortable.
4. Color: The majority of women can wear red, white and black. This is why almost all sexy lingerie comes in these three colors. Blondes look beautiful in pastels; brunettes need the stronger colors like sapphire blue or emerald green, while fiery redheads look fantastic in green, blues and earth tones.
5. Body Shape can affect how you look (and feel!) in lingerie. Use these tips choose the best styles for your body shape.
Pear or Triangle: A Pear shape is smaller on top then tapers out. (This does not mean small busted.) Go with a plunging neckline
Pear or Triangle with small breasts and are sensitive about this area, choose something that does not emphasize this part of the body. A sexy babydoll may be a good choice.
Upside Down Pear or Inverted Triangle: This body type has wider shoulders and smaller hips. If you have a slim waist, go with a babydoll. Or go with another flattering style but add an accessory like a wrap, robe, kimono, or a feather boa to “reduce” the appearance of wider shoulders.
Hour Glass: This body type is equally proportioned on both the top and bottom with a smaller waist. Almost everything worked well for this body type. But if you’re shorter and want to seem taller, go with a short skirt style of lingerie.
