Before getting married, I used to sleep in oversized tee shirts and flannel pajama pants. But one of the tips I received at my bridal shower was to wear lingerie regularly, so I’ve upped my nighttime game with a few different pieces. Here are the four types of lingerie I think every new wife needs.
Babydolls are hands down my favorite type of lingerie. They are comfortable, romantic, and flirty because they just graze over your backside. This one is absolute fave – it’s trimmed in lace and can be tied as a halter for an open back or criss cross for a low back. I have it in purple but am now eying the blush color for summer time.
Now every once in awhile, you need a piece that is va va voom, and corsets (or bustiers) are the answer. They are usually padded and cinched at the waist, sucking you in while lifting you up. They’re not the most comfortable, but they won’t be on for long so it’s well worth it ?. This one is in my collection and it magically gives me the illusion of boobs while making my tummy disappear.
Barely There Teddy
I’m obsessed with one-piece everything (rompers, jumpsuits, swimwear, etc) so it’s no surprise that I turn to teddys when I’m really trying to turn it up. I’ve got a few in black like this lacy number (which also comes in plus sizes!), and the husbae approves because it covers the bare minimum.
To be honest, you probably won’t want to wear lingerie every single night, but a silky cami and shorts set can be even more alluring than the above options. The soft fabric and cheeky bottoms give off a not trying to be sexy but I still am vibe. I’ve even started wearing this one while on my period and I swear my cramps respect themselves and leave me alone. They’re also great for Saturday morning lounging!
