After the stress and excitement of the big day, every couple looks forward to a spectacular honeymoon and more so an unforgettable wedding night. This much anticipated occasion marks the start of their life together and sets the tone for their future intimate moments.
To ignite the spark in these special moments, every bride should invest in some sensual honeymoon lingerie. But choosing the right lingerie can be tricky if like many brides, you usually stick to the basics. A few reasons why your wedding night lingerie needs to be a cut above your everyday inner-wear include:
- Confidence: looking good in the bedroom will make you feel confident and sexy
- Sex Appeal: men are visual creatures and your hubby will appreciate the extra effort
- Comfort: slipping into a hot little number can keep you comfy in tropical honeymoon locations
So what are some of the factors you need to keep in mind when shopping for honeymoon lingerie?
Women come in different shapes and sizes and dressing to accentuate your body type is important even for lingerie. Hour glass figures have various options including sexy bra and thong sets that show off their waistlines. Pear shapes require a little boost on the bust so camisoles with padded or wired bras and clingy fabric panties are a great choice.
Athletic body types look good in bustiers and panties with additional detailing such as ruffles for extra curves. There are also less revealing lingerie options for plus sized women including robes and sarongs.
In order to feel more authentic and therefore comfortable in your wedding night lingerie, it is a good idea to find options that match your personality. If you are a flirty bride, risqué pieces like thongs with accessories such as garters and sheer stockings will blow your groom’s mind away.
Sophisticated ladies can opt for retro inspired lingerie such as rompers, baby-doll sets and corsets. For the shy bride, a subtle yet feminine robe, or a lengthy camisole can be used to cover up. Trying a variety of styles gives you an idea of what you would be comfortable in.
Fabrics also play a big role in the overall choice of lingerie. There are many things to consider in regards to fabric. First, fabrics such as lace, silk, satin and tulle are ultra feminine and will increase the overall appeal on any piece. That being said, these fabrics also sit differently on different body types: a clingy satin robe may accentuate a curvy woman’s assets but diminish the silhouette of a slimmer body type. Also, depending on your wedding destination’s weather, you may opt for heavier fabrics to keep warm or flimsy pieces to ward off the heat.
Whatever honeymoon lingerie you opt for, make sure the pieces not only look great but that they are comfortable and of good quality. Also, invest in durable pieces that you can keep and use over time to keep the fire burning in your relationship.
