Factors To Consider
First and foremost, lingerie is supposed to look good. That’s why you should heavily considered the style of each piece! Choose a style that fits your taste.
The best-designed lingerie isn’t going to flatter your shape if it isn’t sized properly for your body type. A lot of the brands listed above have a wide range of size options.
No matter how sexy a bit of lingerie is, it isn’t worth purchasing if it’s incredibly uncomfortable. Pay close attention to comfort and look for features like silk straps, silk lining, cotton liners, stretchy waistbands, and form-fitting designs to make sure every single item is going to get used fully.
While lingerie is thin and skimpy by design, that doesn’t mean that it needs to be fragile. The best lingerie on the market is tough and well-designed from top-grade materials that will hold up to use long after purchase. Look for quality material selection, top-grade manufacturing within the USA, thick stitching, quality hardware, and just good overall design practices to ensure that a piece of lingerie is going to stand the test of time.
While some lingerie like babydolls probably won’t have too many uses, good lingerie can be used for multiple purposes. A good high-quality slip for instance works as a nightgown and can be worn under some light dresses as well. Versatile options make them even more useful and exciting to own. The more versatile the piece, the more valuable it becomes overall.
