8 Different Types Of Lingerie For All Body Types.

Lingerie is incredibly versatile and comes in a beautiful variety of cuts, fabrics, and designs. Here are different kinds of lingerie that can suit any body type.

Supermodel Heidi Klum once said, “You should spend your money on some nice lingerie. Big wool cotton pants, that just doesn’t work. You have to feel sexy.” 
We couldn’t agree more. All body types are beautiful and worth celebrating and, women of all shapes deserve to feel sexy and gorgeous. Lingerie is an easy way to invoke that feeling.

Whether worn as innerwear or outerwear, slipping into some lingerie can instantly transform your mood for the better, on an ordinary or special day. Lingerie can give you the confident feeling you need to either conquer the day or to get a rejuvenating sleep at night. 
The idea of lingerie, to the unfamiliar, may seem like just sexy bras and panties. But it’s so much more than that. This piece of intimate wear is available in a beautiful array of cuts, shapes, fabrics, and designs that can be worn by many and for many occasions.

Let’s take a closer look!

1. Camisoles and chemises

Camisoles, you could say, are like the tank tops of lingerie. It’s a loose top usually with spaghetti straps, made up of fabrics such as silk, satin with lace embellishments. They usually come with matching lingerie shorts or tap shorts, or with a panty or thong. A chemise, on the other hand, is like a longer, dress-like version of the camisole, which ends around mid-thigh height. Although loose like camisoles, these tend to be snug at the hips, subtly accentuating your bust and figure. Camisoles and chemises are incredibly comfy to wear, which makes them amazing to sleep in. The camise can also work as outerwear, tucked in a pair of pants with a blazer for a fem chic power look.

2. Babydoll

Babydoll lingerie is like a chemise in the sense that it’s like a dress, but flares out a bit. It’s also looser and shorter in length, with a defined waist and built-in cups for breast support. A lot of babydolls open at the front and come with a matching panty, resulting in an ultra-playful, flirty look.

3. Bodysuits and teddies

Bodysuits are like the one-piece swimsuits of lingerie. When worn, they provide coverage from the shoulders to the crotch. Because of their swimsuit-like design, they accentuate your curves, smooth out any bulges, and lift the bust with an underwire. They can come with a variety of necklines, such as halter, plunging, and high-neck. Because their designs and fabrics are so diverse, they can also be worn as tops paired with a skirt or jeans.
It can be easy to confuse bodysuits with teddies because look very similar. But, you can think of teddies as the racier versions of bodysuits. Because they tend to be more revealing and provide less coverage. They’re typically made with delicate fabrics such as lace, designed to move and flow with the body. Both these types of lingerie work great in showing a bit of skin without sacrificing support and structure.

4. Bralette

The bralette is like a relaxed version of the bra. It doesn’t come with any underwire or lined cups, meaning it doesn’t offer as much support for the breasts. Because they’re not as structured, they tend to be comfier to wear. Some come with spaghetti straps, others with v-neck or halter necklines. While some bralettes open or close with a clasp, others have to be slipped over the head to be worn. There are different types of lingerie that can work with a bralette. For innerwear, you could wear it with a thong or a garter belt. For outerwear, let it peek through under a low-cut blouse or a sleeveless top with a huge armhole.

5. Bustiers and corsets

Bustiers are form-fitting garments engineered to lift the breasts and tighten against the torso. It reaches up to the waist or ribcage. Corsets, on the other hand, are designed to significantly make the waist smaller through cinching. It also supports the breasts through boning. Corsets are typically tightened through lacing at the back. The key difference between bustiers and corsets is that bustiers tend to be a less structured, more comfortable version of corsets. Both make sexy outerwear options with their striking, intricate, and fashionable designs. You can wear these types of lingerie with shorts, skirts, or jeans.

6. Garters and garter/suspender belts

Historically, garters were used to help hold stockings up as far back as the 18th century. Garter or suspender belts were later on invented so that women could clip the suspenders to their stockings. These are worn at the waist or a little below the waist so it doesn’t slide down when pulled by the stockings. For an edgy look, try wearing garter belts with short shorts or skirts, stockings, or even on its own.

7. Lingerie costumes

If you want to add some spice, playfulness, and creativity to your bedroom activities, wear different types of lingerie costumes. They can come in bodysuits, teddy, or multiple-piece lingerie sets. Choose from a variety of designs, featuring animals and cartoon characters. Become a sexy nurse, cowboy, student, or whatever tickles your fancy.

8. Thong

Last but definitely not least are thongs. From the front, thongs look like bikini bottoms. At the back, the fabric is reduced to a sliver, just enough to cover the genital area. Because thongs leave your bottom exposed, it’s super sexy lingerie. Thongs can go with a lot of other lingerie, from babydolls, teddies, bralettes, bustiers, and corsets. You can also pair it with garter or suspender belts, too.

Not to mention they are multifunctional, with the ability to be worn in a variety of ways, both inside and outside.
