Lace lingerie and underwear is considered very sensuous by most, it's light, pretty, flowing and yet very suggestive by being lightly revealing in some designs. It's a personal favourite, I find it very feminine and usually associate it with special occasions, such as dinner dates, nights out and for adding a touch of romance into the mix.
I always associate lace underwear with weddings and honeymoon lingerie, especially white lace underwear brings with it its' own sense of innocence and purity traditionally connected with wedding lingerie. Lace chemises are very popular for honeymoon lingerie as they are great at showing off the figure as well as the tan!
For the more adventurous ladies who wish to accentuate their figures and show off their curvy hips and midriff then a lace teddy, especially in black is one of the ultimates in sexy lingerie items for the top drawer! Although not thought of as the most practical of ladies underwear to be wearing out, the teddy is great fun for the bedroom and go just perfectly beneath a long nightgown at the end of an evening.
If it's extra shape and definition that you're looking for without the expense of a heavy boned corset then a bustier will bring support to your breasts while at the same time adding some shape and definition to your waistline.
The beauty with a lace bustier is that it goes well with dresses and blouses and bring added confidence with the support it gives to your figure. Do be wary about wearing a lace bustier beneath light chiffon dresses as the lace can easily show through, not too bad if it's a lace overlay. It's amazing how much more confident a bustier can make you feel.
Finally, the addition of lace to a bra set can easily put it into your favourites drawer, the downside being that you wear it all the time! Why shouldn't you? If you like how it looks and the way it makes you feel about yourself then why be constrained by plain, non-patterned bras that just hold and support?
Don't forget when you're getting a new bra to get measured or measure yourself to see if your size has changed. I often find it better to work with my own measurements in inches as bras from different manufacturers even though maybe a 34B might measure slightly differently.
I know what I'm about to say sounds like a bit of a sales pitch, but I'm not the only woman who does this when they absolutely fall in love with a bra set, I buy a second pair of briefs or thong to go with it. It never feels quite right when your underwear doesn't match, especially if you're not the only one who'll be seeing it!
The addition of a pair of black lace hold ups can often add that extra bit of heat to your lingerie ensemble, and if you can find them to match your new sexy lace bra set then you're sure to create the right impression!
