Go on babe, try something new.  

But first, what makes lingerie sexy?

Sexy lingerie has changed a lot throughout history, from big underskirts to girdles, and who can forget bloomers! While what’s fashionable and considered sexy may have changed, the purpose has remained the same, feeling confident and sexy. 

The key thing to remember is there is no one definition of what makes ‘sexy lingerie’, it’s all defined by you, the wearer. It’s all about what makes you feel good and gives you that confidence boost after you’ve checked yourself out in the mirror. Sexy is a state of mind, and lingerie can help you get there. 

Lingerie is also sexy for other reasons, it can help you explore new things in the bedroom. Whether you’re putting the tease in striptease, roleplaying your fetish fantasy, or slipping into something silky and sensual that flatters and flaunts your best assets, sexy lingerie will give you a new level of confidence to bring that extra little bit of spice. 

So forgo those fears, and take yourself on a sexy lingerie journey. Here are our favorite sexy styles that are perfect for anyone looking to take their sexy lingerie game to the next level.


The ultimate combination to tease and delight, curve-hugging, and figure-loving Chemises are the first step in leveling up your sexy lingerie supply. They flatter your form and soon become your new best friend. The chemise is the perfect piece to build up your confidence. Show your lover a little more while wearing a little less. 

Featuring plunging necklines for more exposed cleavage, chemises come in a variety of materials such as lace, mesh, silk, and vegan-friendly leather (a.k.a. pleather)! It’s time to put aside your trusted nightgown and show your partner who’s the boss in the bedroom.


Designed to be worn in the sheets, or if you’re super confident, with your favorite pair of jeans out in the streets! Teddies are guaranteed to entice all day and all night long. Teddies are very similar to a bodysuit, with an all-in-one design that cuts high around the leg, and is flattering on any size and shape. If you are a little self-conscious about your tummy, a Teddy will cover your midriff, while highlighting those gorgeous legs of yours.
