Now that we have that out of the way, let’s mention your unmentionables — specifically the sexy little somethings to turn up the heat for your first night as newlyweds or while you’re on your honeymoon. Whether you’ve been thinking about this or putting it off (hey, not all of us are comfortable sporting the lovely and lacy — I certainly wasn’t), I totally recommend ponying up for one or two nice pieces of lingerie to sport for your honey after your nuptials. Even if you don’t get down and dirty on your actual wedding night (guys, being too tired after all the fun is real), you may want to make your official consummation a little extra special when it does happen. And here’s the thing about lingerie: Even though it can be totally intimidating if you’re not used to it, seeing yourself in a well-fitting, flattering ensemble will do crazy good things for your confidence. I remember getting my first matching bra and panty set (because: baby steps) and being like “Holy shit” because it looked so much better than my standard nude-bra-and-patterned-boyshorts combo I usually wore. I highly recommend getting properly fit for a bra by a specialist — and I’m not talking about going to *that* chain store. Head to an independent retailer and have them measure you, then try on a few styles to see what you feel most comfortable in — because you definitely should be comfortable. Our friends over at Hips & Curves have everything from pretty matching sets to racier ensembles, all of which are great for gettin’ it on.
Treat yo-self to a matching set (or two!) so you always have something pretty to surprise your partner with at the end of the night … whether it’s a special occasion or you’re just feeling a little saucy.
Let’s chat about the teddy for a sec: I had always been a little hesitant about these things — they’re kind of like rompers, but um, way sexier. And I was convinced they’d look super weird on me and be awkward to wear … until I tried one on and realized how freaking comfortable they are and pretty they look. And, even though I was living by myself and in a long-distance relationship at the time, I started wearing mine to bed every night. It was like heaven. I totally recommend trying it out.
For those daring to be a little more bare and bold, this set is equal parts romantic and racy. The strappy lines are totally on-trend with current sleek lingerie but the lace adds an uber romantic flair.
Would you sport any of these pretty little underthings on your wedding night? Which style is your fave?
