Ladies, we can tell how excited you are as soon as you saw the headlines and that’s because this fashion piece is one of the most hideous parts of our style which normally isnt seen on the outside but it actually defines us from the inside, and we can dare say that the confidence of one’s style starts from the type of lingerie’s that one wears which then reflects on the outside. The big moments that women are seen fascinated with the type of lingerie to go for would probably be during weeks to her wedding night, it is believed that the night she is  going to be spending with her newly wedded husband, has to not only be memorable but her look is something that has to prepare and set the mood right.

First things first, though, What is lingerie? To put it simply, lingerie means undergarments or sleepwear and usually, styles that are a little fancier than your typical, everyday essentials. But there’s a whole bunch of other lingo to get to know while you’re shopping. Chemise or camisole? Bustier or corset? What’s the difference, anyhow? We’ve got the lowdown on the most popular types of lingerie, plus how to wear each lingerie style for an unforgettable look.

 

Bikini

 

A sexy pair of underwear can stand solo or be paired with a matching cami or bra for a low-maintenance but high-impact look. A bikini specifically is a classic cut. Its rise is low, but not too low, and it offers coverage in the back while still looking cute and flirty.  Celebrating your first night as newlyweds? Go for a pair of personalized panties customized with your new married name or your monogram.

 

Bodysuit

Think: a bra and underwear in one. Sometimes, you’ll see this called a teddy. Even though a bodysuit offers more coverage than two separate pieces, it’s somehow sexier. Probably because it’s got “special occasion” written all over it, making it wedding night or Valentine’s Day, or your anniversary you get the idea perfection. Looking for lingerie with straps? This bodysuit features strappy harness detailing on the front, as well as a strappy cutout back.

 

Bra

Obviously, you know what a bra is. A delicate bra and underwear set alone can make a sexy statement on the wedding night and every other day of the year. Bras come in a variety of styles: triangle, push-up, demi, balconette and more you can really choose whichever you love most. Look for a bra embellished with embroidery or lace to elevate it to special-occasion status.

 

Bralette

A bralette is a bra without underwire or other structural elements, so it tends to offer less support. For some, that’s a draw, but for others, it’s a deal-breaker try the fit out for yourself. Note that some bralettes don’t have clasp closures and need to be removed over your head.

 

Bustier

Want to add extra va-va-voom to the wedding night? Wear this lingerie style to accentuate your cleavage. A bustier is an extended bra top that usually covers all or most of the torso, though there are bustier bras that end well above the belly button. For an ultra-bridal look, go white and lacy. If you’re looking to pump up the sex appeal, go for a strappier style in black or red. Want something extra extravagant? Try attached garters, so you can add thigh-high stockings.

 

Camisole (and Tap Short)

A camisole aka cami is a lingerie tank top, usually with spaghetti straps. Choose one in a silky or satin fabric with lace accents for a luxe vibe, and pair it with tap shorts, which is the name for lingerie short-shorts. Choose this look if you want something comfy and pajama-esque for the wedding night or beyond. It’s not as over-the-top sexy as some other types of lingerie, but it’ll definitely make you feel pampered. A cami could also be worn with a thong or any other underwear bottoms to show a little more skin.

 

Chemise

A chemise is a short slip dress that’s simple to literally slip into and can be paired with a matching bikini or thong. It’ll make you feel so beautiful and flirty kind of like a wedding dress, only skimpier. The baby-doll shape of this chemise is both sultry and super comfy. It’s semi-sheer and covered in lace, making it totally unforgettable.
