The only event more romantic than your upcoming nuptials is spending your first Valentine's Day together as an engaged couple. And what better way to celebrate this special occasion than treating yourself to some stunning new lingerie?

Valentine's Day lingerie runs the gamut from super sexy to simple and sweet and offers a colorful palette to play with. For bold brides-to-be, fiery numbers in racy red accented with sheer paneling and daring cut-outs are the way to go. Prefer something more bridal-inspired? The options for white lace bodysuits, gauzy chemises, and honeymoon-ready slips are endless. And for those drawn to feminine details, a lace bra and panty set coupled with a soft pink robe always makes for a flawless pairing.

"Choose pieces that accentuate your best features and invest in high-quality pieces," says Sapna Palep, CEO of Journelle. "When it comes to sexy lingerie and feeling confident, you need to wear it often and get used to seeing yourself in gorgeous lingerie. Look at yourself in the mirror and see how beautiful you look and feel, and remove any doubts and self-judgments. Before you know it, you’ll be buying more lingerie and the confidence will follow."

What to Look for in Valentine's Day Lingerie

Fit and Comfort

Whether you're looking for something sexy and sweet or bridal-inspired and feminine, there are so many romantic options to choose from when it comes to Valentine's Day lingerie. "When shopping for lingerie there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure you’re wearing the right size," Palep advises. "It’s important to get fitted by a professional bra fit specialist. This will make a world of difference."

From lacy bras and panty sets to elegant silk chemises, you'll want to find a piece that fits you perfectly, makes you feel confident, and reflects your style. "You’ll also want to look for high-quality fabrics that will not only feel good against your skin but will look amazing, too."

Style

"Choose colors and textures that you love. There are so many choices and it’s very personal for each person. It might be satin and lace, rich jeweled tones, or maybe pale pinks and nudes," says Palep. "If you’re new to lingerie, start with a set. A bra and panty set is a great way to build your lingerie wardrobe. Pick what you love. Remember, you’re the one wearing it. When the fit is right, the colors and textures will not only look good but feel good."

If your tastes lean classic, consider a lingerie set or a timeless slip made from sumptuous white or blush silk. More of a statement-making bride-to-be? Go for lingerie in bright reds with daring details like sheer paneling and bold and whimsical patterns. And don't forget the accessories! Garter belts, robes, and even a pair of pretty slippers can make for the perfect finishing touch to a Valentine's Day look.

FAQ
  • What are the different types of lingerie?

    Lingerie comes in many different styles and silhouettes: some of the most common types of intimates are bra and panty sets, bodysuits, teddys, chemises, and slips. Accessories like garter belts and suspenders are also considered part of the lingerie category.

  • What lingerie styles are best for accentuating different body parts?

    "Lingerie can make you look great and feel confident by accentuating your curves in all the right places. If you want to accentuate a small waist, a garter belt will do the trick. A garter belt is fitted around your waist and adds that extra detail and beauty when you wear it with a coordinating bra and panty," Palep advises. "You may want to accentuate your long legs. Bodysuits are the perfect piece of lingerie to bring attention to your long legs...If you want to accentuate your backside, look for a cheeky boy short."

    When it comes down to it, picking your lingerie is all about wearing styles that make you feel confident, comfortable, and sexy in your own skin.

  • Can I wear Valentine's Day lingerie under my clothing?

    "Yes, you can wear Valentine’s Day lingerie under clothing. In fact, you can make it part of your outfit," Palep says. "If you are wearing a jacket or blazer, show off your sexy bodysuit under the jacket...Another great piece of lingerie that can be worn under clothing or even as clothing is a camisole. It’s the perfect sleeveless top and goes with everything." She continues, "Wear a sexy lace bralette under a sheer blouse that will take you from day to night...A strapless bustier is super sexy and looks great on its own or under a jacket or button-down top or sweater."

  • How can I accessorize my lingerie?

    "You can accessorize your lingerie in so many fun ways," says Palep. "The first thing that comes to mind is hosiery. A sexy pair of thigh highs is a great accessory to add with your garter belt and thong. Also, the classic fishnet hosiery is a great choice. Another fun accessory that is also functional, is Nippies. They come in many colors and styles; some are fun and festive and others are perfect to wear under fitted tops for smooth coverage. Sleep masks are also a fun accessory to have, you can get one that matches your lingerie set."
