Choosing the right lingerie for your body size and shape is really important because when it fits perfectly, lingerie always looks fantastic. Sexy, stylish and irresistible, lingerie can help to boost your confidence. It can also enhance your figure and spice things up in the bedroom. In order to ensure your lingerie looks as good as possible, you need to select the right pieces and the correct sizes for your body shape.
Choose something that’s too small, and it will pinch, cause your body to bulge and feel pretty uncomfortable. On the other side of the scale, if you choose lingerie too large it will hang off you, which is not going to look very flattering.
To help you get it just right, and find the pieces that are perfect for you, we’ve put together a quick guide to finding the right lingerie for your body.
Finding The Right Size
Before you start shopping for lingerie online, you need to find out your real dress size. A lot of women aren’t really sure what their exact dress size is. Often they like to try on something they like the look of, rather than choosing something that flaunts their figure.
While this may work when browsing on the high street, online shopping doesn’t give you the chance to try things on. This means you need to get it right the first time. If you’re not sure of your size, take some key measurements. Most good quality online stores will provide you with size charts which will give you a good idea of the fit.
For lingerie, the most important measurements will probably be bust, cup size, waist and hips. As well as looking at size charts it is also a good idea to see what measurements the model is wearing, if they have a similar figure to you.
Try to choose lingerie that enhances and emphasises your best features. If you’re naturally slim, you’ll probably want something that shows off your petite waist and long, elegant legs.
Lingerie that is open around the stomach is a great choice as it draws attention to your waist. Two-piece sets will also show off your flat stomach, while a revealing teddy will leave little to the imagination.
If you have a fuller figure, choosing the right size is even more important. After all, no one wants their lingerie pinching at their hips or cutting into their thighs, so make sure you select the size that’s right for you.
If you have an hourglass body type, you’ll probably want to show off your bust and curvy hips. Bras, suspenders, corsets and lingerie sets that enhance and draw attention to these parts of your body will help you to look great and feel fantastic.
Last but definitely not least, choosing the right lingerie for your body size is a great way to boost your confidence. Knowing you look great will make you feel great. The more positive you act, the more attractive you’ll feel. This will automatically make you look even more glamorous in your lingerie.
