A Beginner's Guide to Lingerie: Tips for First-Time Buyers
How to Choose Your First Lingerie
Here are some tips and advice for first-time lingerie buyers:
Choosing comfortable lingerie for your first purchase
Don't feel pressured to buy a lacy, padded, push-up bra or a barely there thong if you're not comfortable with those styles. Start with comfortable, everyday styles like a soft teddy or a classic bustier bodysuit. You'll feel more confident and at ease in lingerie that fits and flatters your body.
Finding the right lingerie for your body type
Lingerie is not one-size-fits-all. Think about your body type and what styles will flatter your figure. If you're busty, look for bras with underwire and thicker straps for support. Shop our full bust collection here. Tip: Styles with an elastic or boned waist help highlight our curves!
Lingerie sizing guide for beginners
Fit is the most important factor when it comes to lingerie. Make sure to measure yourself and check the sizing chart before making a purchase. Keep in mind that different brands may have different sizing, so it's always a good idea to double-check. The size guides are available for each product in a link under the size selection buttons.
Don't worry about your weight
I always hear, "That's so beautiful, I am going to wait until I lose 10 more pounds before I try it though." Lingerie is for everyone, regardless of size. Don't let the number on the scale dictate what you wear. Focus on finding styles that make you feel confident and comfortable in your own skin. Shop styles available up to 6X.
Experiment with different lingerie styles
If you don't love your first purchase, it's important to remember that it's not you that doesn't look good in the lingerie. If you've never tried lingerie before, you should experiment with different styles before giving up! There are so many different silhouettes, fabrics, colors and styles - there is something out there perfect for you!
