Canadian lingerie brand La Senza is offering its annual sale. Currently, promotion is at seven pieces of intimate apparel for $27. I thought it is a good deal and given their riot prints, my lingerie drawer could use new, playful members.
I had to pick seven – and yes it took me a couple of minutes to decide which style. I was tempted to pick all things lacy. But If I am to bring along my new purchase for a three-week-travel, I will need something more breathable and comfortable – yet I do not wish to sacrifice that alluring feel. You know, if you wish to look seductive, start with your lingerie. No matter how bad you think your day is going to be, dressing up and starting with what you know and feel sexy can make a huge difference.
Anyway, the staff came to my rescue and I took it also as a chance to ask, what a Brazilian underwear looks like teehee.
I learned a lot that morning and coupled with more online research, I share with you 10 types of underwear I believe every woman should own. ((^_^))
1. Bikini Panty
*This style has a thin waistband that sits on the hip. It’s perfect for everyday wear as they are comfortable, and functional yet with a subtle sexy feel.
2. Brief Panty
*The classic intimate apparel that provides ample cover. Nowadays, they are made of lace, cotton, and microfiber.
3. Control Brief
*This style is characterized by high waistline to provide instant slimming look.
4. Brazilian Panty
*They are super low cut that offers less coverage. They have a frilly lace running around the waistband and has a full crotch has a full crotch, but the back is cut to follow the shape of your cheeks in a curved or arched shape.
5. Boy Shorts
*Taking its cue from ‘hot pants,’ boy shorts are a style of panties cut in a way that resembles boys underwear; straight across the top, and straight across the legs/rear, but very high. They can be in romantic lace or pure cotton.
*They are more common silhouette in Europe, tanga is also a great way to make a transition from regular panty to thong. They are high cut, with full crotch but the back is as narrow as a thong.
*Perhaps the most exciting style of undies and they are great for any body shape giving you that sexy feel, anytime anywhere. It is a panty with a narrow piece of fabric in the back that begins as a “v” shape at the waistband and then tapers to a thin strip by the time it reaches the crotch. The cheeks of your bottom are very exposed.
*Also called as low-rise brief, a hipster is a perfect solution for wearing under low cut jeans, which is what it is designed to do. Comfort wise, it feels almost exactly the same as a regular brief. However, this can also give you visible panty lines.
9. G-String Panty
*They are daring and if you opt for the micro fiber material, they are some of the most comfortable style to wear not to mention that g-string gives you no visible panty line. Similar to a thong in front, a g-string leaves your cheeks exposed. The back has either a simple string coming off a thin waistband or a small triangle with the string coming out of the lower point.
10. Rio Thong
*This thong has the most rear coverage of the thong family. Generally, about 1/3 of your rear is covered by material and a similar amount of coverage in the front. Thong styles vary, but they all have a steep angle to the rear material.
I took as many comfortable style and just had to take two itsy bitsy lacy white. Tip on how to make your intimate apparel last longer: have a separate drawer for active and everyday wear and one purposely for those special nights. This way, you can keep track of your favorite lingerie piece.
