Sheer lingerie is beautiful, elegant and sexy, but it does take a bit of confidence to wear! Whether it’s sheer chiffon, delicate lace or a sexier fishnet get-up you’re wearing, here’s how to choose sheer lingerie and wear it with style…
A nightdress is typically loose and floaty, so it’s the perfect place to start with sheer fabrics. A semi-sheer nightdress is both seductive and sophisticated – think Bond Ladies and Hollywood style glamour!
Sheer nightdresses are perfect for covering up any lumps or bumps you’d like to hide, such as your tummy or hips, without resorting to uncomfortable, tight-fitting shapewear. The semi-sheer fabric gives a teasing hint as what lies beneath, whilst still leaving a lot to the imagination.
Plus, sheer fabrics such as a lace or silk chiffon allow the skin to breathe more than solid, opaque fabrics do so they’re perfect for staying cool and comfortable when sleeping at night!
Fishnet has a bad rep for being tacky, but as the Agent Provocateur Bubbles set proves it can be one of the most deluxe fabrics for a luxury bra if chosen well!
A fishnet bra is a very unique piece of lingerie, and you’ve got to be pretty confident to wear it! To keep the look on the right side of classy, opt for classic black or perhaps ice white – steer clear of red or anything ‘neon’!
For pure Hollywood style glamour, nothing looks more elegant than a floor-sweeping robe in swathes of beautiful, sheer chiffon. It’s the perfect topping to a luxury lingerie set as the sheer robe will give a teasing hint of the set you’re wearing underneath – perfect for those special occasions!
Any shape or size looks great in a sheer robe, and a floor length one will elongate petite figures – especially if teamed with heels!
A sexy, sheer mesh camisole is another excellent piece of sheer lingerie, helping you to feel both gorgeous and sexy. Striking colours such as black and red are great for mesh camisoles to give it a dramatic and attention-grabbing look.
If you’re not confident wearing a fully-sheer mesh camisole, look for one with sexy sheer panels down the sides or the centre-front, teamed with opaque silk or satin panels for a very unique and no less sexy finish.
