How to Choose the Right Lingerie for Your Figure
Every girl wants to look her best in lingerie, but not all lingerie is made for everyone. I personally hate to see the lingerie that comes in a package that says one size fits all. That couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to intimate apparel. This article will explain how to choose the right lingerie to make you look and feel great!
The first step is to determine what shape your body is. Are you a pear, a ruler or an apple?
A pear is a figure that is curvy. It’s larger in the hips than in the tummy and has a smaller top than the bottom. “Pears” generally have large thighs and rears as well.
A ruler is a figure that is fairly balanced with a little curve. Most “rules” are very slim women.
An apple figure is one that is much larger in the chest than in the hips and thighs. A woman who is apple shaped usually has a bit thicker middle but slim, toned legs.
So figure out which figure you have first in order to determine which lingerie style will flatter your body the most.
Once you’ve determined your shape, the next step is to explore the different styles of lingerie that work with your shape. You should have a good idea of what styles of lingerie you are looking for before you go shopping. Also be sure to shop at a nice lingerie boutique for the greatest selection and quality.
Here are examples of the most figure flattering styles for each of the three body types:
Pear Shaped Figure
Pear shaped women should look for clothing styles that show off their body’s curve and that play down larger thighs. Flirty little gowns that hide the thigh area are a great choice. Also look for sexy pieces that wrap or have to crouch in the middle. This will break up your bust and hips and draw attention to your waist giving you a very sexy pin up girl figure. Or you could choose a two piece that has a lacy bra and a matching miniskirt or boy-shorts.
Ruler Shaped Figure
Women who have a ruler figure should find styles that add curves to their figure and break up the straight line. Go with corsets and bustiers to push up your breasts and pull in your waist. This will give the illusion of dramatic curves. You could also try a sexy push-up bra and ruffled panties. This will add bulk to your chest and hips while at the same time showcasing your cute little tummy.
Apple Shaped Figure
Apple shaped ladies need to find styles that show off their breasts and minimize or distract from their middle. Babydolls look fabulous on apple shaped women. Choose a baby doll with a low plunge front and lots of detail over the bust area to enhance your great cleavage. This style will accentuate your breasts and the sheer fabric that covers the tummy will minimize any thickness in that area. Corsets are a good choice for apple shaped women as well. Just be sure to pick a long line corset, as one that is too short will make your middle appear wider.
The last thing to keep in mind is to be sure you choose a lingerie style that you feel comfortable and sexy in. If you don’t feel sexy, you can’t be sexy. Attitude has a lot to do with your overall look in lingerie. Don’t buy anything unless you feel like a sex kitten while wearing it! If you feel self-conscious in a piece of lingerie, you’re either not going to wear it or you’re going to be too busy trying to “suck in” or hide under the covers for your partner to enjoy the view.
