How to Pick the Best Lingerie for You

Breaking out some sexy underthings is a great way to get your partner in the mood and really ramp up the passion. But not just any lacy thing will do when you're outfitting yourself for serious romance. If you want to surprise your man with something he'll love and something that will make you feel comfortable, read on to learn how to choose the best lingerie for you. First, if you plan to wear it under your clothing, be sure it doesn't have parts that will make your clothes ill-fitting, like fur trim or a lace-up corset with a bow that will look bumpy under a clingy shirt. Consider the clasps, hooks, snaps and other fasteners - are they too complicated for your partner to figure out and get undone? Nothing kills the mood more than getting stuck in your gorgeous getup while he struggles to get it undone. Perhaps if you're planning to perform a striptease, some complicated clasps could make it that much sexier, as you build anticipation by slowly unfastening your outfit.

Be sure to check out the material of any lingerie you're considering. Again, if you're planning to wear it under clothing, it shouldn't be made of cheap polyester that won't allow for ventilation. Itchy lace will keep you scratching - definitely not sexy. Go with material that makes you comfortable. Finally, consider your body type. Play up your strengths and feel free to keep your trouble spots covered. Whatever you do, don't point out how terrible you think your thighs look or if your tummy hangs over your panties a bit - all it will do is kill his desire because at this point, he's probably so thrilled to see you in something sexy, those little flaws won't even matter. Remember to include some pretty accessories to finish the look, like high heels, stockings and jewelry. If you feel comfortable and sexy in the ensemble, it will show - and turn him on even more!
