Sensual and sexy underwear

When it comes to underwear, women have an endless array of sensual goodies to choose from: garter belts, bras, corsets, and panties… Doctissimo takes a good long look at sexy underwear to help you choose what works for you and your lover.

Women’s sexy lingerie comprises an enormous range of expensive though dangerously seductive items. Lingerie has become increasingly sexy over time, in an effort to accommodate the increasingly insatiable appetite of modern-day couples.

Bras, panties, corsets and fishnet stockings have sneaked their way into the bedroom and for many, have become an integral part of the erotic game. Quality lingerie remains a luxury but is becoming more and more affordable, as an increasing number of brands offer sensual pieces. Sexy lingerie, it seems, will never go out of fashion, so are you following the trend?. 

Beautiful bras

It’s hard to imagine that, for thousands of years, women had to make do with thongs and crop tops to keep their breasts in place. Invented toward the end of the 19th century, the bra didn’t become overwhelmingly popular until after World War I, when it brought real emancipation to women, who could finally leave off wearing tight corsets and thus breathe normally.

There is a huge variety of sexy bras. Even if you are large-breasted, forget about reinforced support bras for the bedroom and choose balcony or push-up bras, whose décolleté will delight any man. Wonderbra is a great option for those with a smaller bosom and come in a wide range of colours and materials, but nearly all lingerie brands now have uplift ranges.

Pretty panties

Matched with bras, panties wield great seduction power and make ladies feel sexy. You might think such subtle details as a little knot would go unnoticed, but they are known to drive men crazy. Lace panties are a classic, but still a tremendous turn-on. For those looking for originality, you may want to try satin, silk or other more noble fabrics to seduce your lover. On the other hand, cotton panties, classic briefs and shapewear are not really the sexiest underwear imaginable so save those for under your office wear.

Foxy fishnets

A lace belt encircling the waist and suspenders holding the stockings in place: fishnet stockings are as simple and effective as they sound. Actress Marlene Dietrich made fishnet stockings popular with The Blue Angel movie poster, until World War II led to privations, which put a stop to their rise. They could have become even more popular, had they not won an unsavoury association with prostitutes that almost brought about their demise. However, fishnets bounced back into fashion in the 70s.

To this day, fishnet stockings have retained a distinctively erotic quality that the more popular tights haven’t quite equalled. Fishnets are feminine, elegant and sophisticated, making them a sexy underwear must-have. Fishnet stockings are not be confused with the daily-wear fishnet tights that you can pick up at many high street clothes stores. The tights are for practical wear under short skirts and the stockings are for private use only.
