Lingerie is part of a woman’s daily essentials. It makes every woman feel powerful, sexy, and confident about her body. Women may be considered as the experts when it comes to lingerie, but that does not necessarily mean they know everything about it. Here are some facts about lingerie you may not be aware of:
1. Lingerie isn’t necessarily worn for seduction purposes.
Yes, sexy lingerie can be a major turn on for any man, but lingerie designers did not make them just to boost your sex life. Lingerie is the first layer of clothing you wear right next to your skin and its basic function is to cover and protect your intimate body parts. Its job is to make you feel comfortable and confident all day. The fact that it can make you feel sexy and helps you pull off the art of seduction is just a supporting function.
2. Lingerie must be comfortable to wear.
When you purchase lingerie, you should always consider comfort over fashion. Remember that your lingerie rubs against your skin all day, which is why it has to be comfortable. Why should you make yourself suffer by wearing something that can irritate your skin or make you feel uncomfortable? Unless you’re in the habit of showing your undergarments to other people, no one will really know you’re wearing designer lingerie, so what’s the point of sacrificing your own comfort just so you can wear the latest trends?
3. Lingerie must fit properly.
Ill-fitting lingerie isn’t all that pretty to look at; it isn’t all that comfortable, either. When you buy a lingerie set, make sure it fits you perfectly. Women sometimes have a hard time admitting that they’ve grown a size bigger, and continue buying lingerie in their old size. Wearing lingerie that doesn’t fit well can actually make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. Wearing lingerie that’s too small can also leave unsightly marks in your bikini area.
4. A lingerie sale does not always lead to a good deal.
Aside from lingerie, women also love a sale and when you combine these two, it’s not unusual to see us drool. When we hear the word “sale,” we usually get excited thinking every single item being sold there is cheap. Note, however, that a sale does not always mean that you’ve got yourself a good deal. Oftentimes, lingerie is only put on “sale” to encourage consumers to hoard it. A smart buyer always reminds herself that just because it is on sale does not mean you have to buy it. Before buying anything, ask yourself first if you really need it.
5. Lingerie should be purchased with your style in mind.
Who cares if it is the latest trend in lingerie style? If you don’t feel like wearing it, don’t buy it! Aside from comfort, your preference in terms of style should also be considered when buying lingerie. Remember you are buying lingerie primarily for your own pleasure, not someone else’s. Don’t buy lingerie just because someone tells you to do so, as it is the latest trend. Buy lingerie in a style that reflects your personality and makes you feel good.
