Sexy Lingerie: How To Harness The Allure And Sexiness Of Lace



Lace is probably the most recognizable material for sexy lingerie, but what makes it so sexy? Perhaps it’s that it’s a very traditional material that’s beloved of both men and women and is always bound to bring back memories? Maybe it’s the ultra-feminine look of lace?

No matter how you feel about lace, this examination of why it’s so sexy and how to harness its full potential is sure to give you some great ideas about which lacy sexy lingerie to choose.

Everyone loves lace

Lace is used in all kinds of garments, from wedding gowns to lingerie. The reason is that it’s one of the best looking materials and both men and women love its amazing look. You only need to remember the huge impact that Kate Middleton’s lace wedding dress caused world-wide, to see why getting the amazing impression that lace can give in your lingerie collection is well worthwhile.

Is lace comfortable?

Certainly where lingerie is concerned comfort is a big factor as it’s so close to your skin, but is lace even comfortable? The answer is that it depends, because there are different types of lace. In general lace is a rather stiff fabric which can be a little scratchy against your skin, so when you are shopping for sexy lingerie you should by all means choose types with lace, but just be careful about where it’s going to be in contact with your body. It would be better to have satin lingerie with lace overlaid.

Think of lace more as decoration, rather than something you want a lot of touching your skin. The only exclusion from this would be silk lace which is very soft and comfortable like all kinds of silk, but also like all kinds of silk it’s expensive so lingerie made with it will have a premium price tag!

Which items of lace lingerie are nice?

They all have their appeal, but typically you can find teddies, chemises and negligees which are made with a lot of lace. These will be partially sheer, which gives a lot of excitement and titillation to whoever sees you in them, as there are holes in the lace (as that’s what lace has). Just make sure that those items have satin cups or panels for your bust, then you can avoid any nipple chafing!

The great thing about these three items is that they aren’t necessarily too revealing, so they’re great for building tension in the bedroom while still being able to offer you some coverage which can boost confidence.

Garter belts and stockings also need a mention here, as these are the typically lacy sexy lingerie and you can see the garter belt has a lace border and the garters (like a bride wears) are made from lace. If you team these up with lacy panties and stockings with lace tops then you will be harnessing the most iconic and wonderful look that any lingerie can offer! Quite frankly this ensemble will make jaws drop and is a must in the bedroom for lace-lovers!

As long as you have done your research there’s no need for your lace sexy lingerie to irritate you. Just be sure to choose items where there isn’t too much lace directly coming into contact with your skin (unless it’s silk lace).

A great place to start looking is online, where you can pull up many images to get an idea in your mind before you hit the lingerie stores.
