With the popularity of Valentines Lingerie boutiques in shopping malls across America the stigma of buying and wearing Valentines Lingerie is now a thing of the past. However for women who’ve never bought Valentines Lingerie before or are still a little shy about visiting a store here’s our guide for styles you are likely to encounter. Baby Doll Set A baby doll set encompasses a large category of Valentines Lingerie items. Basically it’s a two piece set, consisting of a robe or loose billowy top and matching bottom. The top is always loose fitting and comes in just below the bust line, like an empire bodice.
The top is very loose fitting and short, ending at or just below your rear. Baby doll sets are available in wide variety of fabrics from silk and satin to sheer lace. Chemise A chemise is a short flowing Aline gown that’s longer than a baby doll. The top usually has spaghetti or halter straps. The angular shape of a chemise looks good on almost every figure type. If you are concerned about your midsection look for a style that has built in figure control. Sometimes a chemise comes with a matching bottom, but this varies from style to style.
The fabric choices range from patterned and solid silks to very revealing lace, so there is something for everyone’s taste. Camisole A camisole is female undershirt. It is loose fitting and has thin spaghetti straps that go over the shoulder. It’s usually paired with a matching bottom. Camisoles are now also available as outwear. While they are not usually worn as formal office attire, they can be worn for casual occasions. Pyjamas is the opposite of a camisole.
It’s a structured garment that has bones or ribs to force your body into certain proportions. The effects of a corset can be very dramatic, and can create a very enticing curvy shape. Some corsets are more difficult to wear than others, depending on how much shaping they are doing. If you’ve never worn one before choose something that’s not so difficult to get into. Corsets are also now being made as outwear. While not something you would wear to the office, they are perfect for a dinner party, club or night on the town.
