Flatter Your Body with the Right Lingerie

Sep 12, 2008
There are so many ways to flatter your body. Whatever physique you have and whichever size you belong, there is definitely something for everybody. When it comes to lingerie, getting the right size and style will flatter your body in many ways. Not everyone feels comfortable baring it all so putting on a nice pair of lingerie should change your mood in a jiffy.

Lingerie is a glorified term for undergarments. It is a fashionable term for women and mens undergarments where visual appeal is a must. It is often pronounced with a faux French accent, Lonj-er-ee or lonj-er-ay for British. Even during the later part of the nineteenth century, the main purpose of the lingerie is to alter body shape with the use of corsets, later with girdles or bras. Corsets are commonly seen in movies set in nineteenth century where they would risk breaking a rib just to get that hourglass figure.

Comfort was a non issue at that time. During this time underwear became smaller and more form fitting compared to what used to large and bulky pieces commonly termed as grandmother panties. During the 1960s a controversial shift to glamorize lingerie began to develop.

Women today have gotten rid of bulky and oversized undergarments. You would rarely catch someone in their grandmother panties. No one wants to be caught dead in it. Lingerie is available practically anywhere. You can buy them online and in every single department store. There are all sorts of designs that fit every woman in every possible size. Some fashionable underwear can in face be used as outer wear. Some of the big lingerie makers tag their lingerie with ridiculously high prices. Lingerie boutiques are very popular in key fashion cities all over the world. This includes Paris, London, New York, Tokyo, Beijing and even in the Middle East.

Lingerie has also become the perfect Christmas, birthday and wedding gift for women. It is something that will surely be useful and helpful. When buying lingerie for your woman or friend keep in mind that not everyone feels comfortable baring their bottom in revealing thongs or see-through bras.

Put some thought into the kind of lingerie that will complement the user without her feeling to uncomfortable with it. If they are fond of wearing short skirts or micro minis then you can choose to buy them baby doll lace shorts or bra skirts. If you often see them in halter tops, bustier style or corset lingerie will look good on them.

Generally black, red and while look good on almost everyone. For blonds you can pick pastels while brunettes can pull off stronger colors like purple and emerald green. Redheads will look best with greens, blues and earthy tones. The most crucial part in choosing the right lingerie is the size. You can snoop around their closet or ask her little sister to do the dirty job for you of finding out what size she belongs. When you are in doubt be creative and find ways to figure it out.
