You’re Not Alone

When you’re starting out in the world of lingerie, knowing what to wear can be more than a little intimidating. There are so many styles, shapes, and options to choose from. You may be worried about what is going to look best on you, but that’s okay. You’re not alone! Keep on reading to find out about various lingerie options that will boost your confidence!

Find Your Perfect Fit

Whether you’re getting ready for a photoshoot, or just planning on having some fun, knowing the best lingerie options for your body type is the first step to rocking them. The best part is you might be surprised by how many unique and beautiful ways you can wear these fun and fabulous lingerie styles.

4 Styles of Lingerie

Bras and Panty Sets

Let’s start things off with a more traditional option but add a little zest. Try finding some bra and panty sets in pastel, muted, matte or jewel toned colors to bring out your natural glow. Still not sure? You can never go wrong with black! Black is classic and timeless. If your midsection is an area you feel a little self-conscious about, try to avoid low-rise panties, and reach for the mid-rise, instead. If you want a little extra excitement try finding options with lace and textures!


Corsets might be one of the best-known lingerie options, but the key is to keep them classy. Try finding one with a sweetheart neckline, to accentuate your curves. Corsets that have a straight bust area can flatten your girls, and nobody wants that!

Body Suits/Shapewear

If you’re feeling a little self-conscious about your midsection, try a sexy body suit. Not only is this style of lingerie perfect for showing off your curves, but shape wear can be more flattering, while leaving a bit more to the imagination.


Like every great outfit, your lingerie should be paired with the right accessories. The great thing about these accessories is that they don’t have to be expensive! Try a pair of thigh highs and a garter belt (only about $8-$10 on Amazon) and watch your outfit jump to a whole new level.

*Pro TipWhen looking for the perfect lingerie, stay away from G-strings and baby doll outfits. They tend to be unflattering on pretty much everyone.
