Lingerie is more than just something we have to wear, or at least, we’re supposed to wear.

Lingerie can be an extension of who you are and your own personal essence. It can flatter and support and make you feel amazing.

That’s what we hope you feel, anyways! But we know the journey of embracing lingerie and your body isn’t an easy one. However, we think that a shift in perspective can help!

So if you don’t know how lingerie can help you rediscover your body, here are some things to consider.

Lingerie Has To Fit, So You Have To Get Fitted

Bras are always going to feel hard and uncomfortable until they fit, and you play with some styles to know what you really love. When you get measured, or measure yourself, you have the tools to narrow down what bras will work for you.

A good bra can help you feel a boost of confidence and glamour, and it feels pretty good too.

Underwear Has Come A Long Way

Thongs and granny panties aren’t the only option anymore (they are option we love too, though).

If you want your tummy to be structured and tucked in, you’ve got high waisted options. If you love your butt, or want to add some curve to your butt, a cheeky or brazilian will work wonders. If you want comfortable thighs that aren’t squished, you have seamless options.

Essentially, you can find comfortable underwear that flatters your shape and figure. A good pair of underwear that fits well, like a bra, can really transform your look, but also how you feel about your lower half.

Stop Thinking Size Matters

We don’t mean the measurements of your bra and panty – you do want to know it.

What we mean is lingerie is changing; it’s not one size that can bask in the glory of some sexy and modern intimates. You are allowed to love yourself and embrace the body you have now in lingerie that appeals to you.

Explore different styles of lingerie outside of the necessities. You have chemises or bodysuits that you can style just for your own pleasure, or even for a fun, fashionable night. You also have new things, like bralettes and longline styles, that add some flair to what you wear every day.

The point is that lingerie is not meant to be a burden, or be something that only one body type can enjoy. You want to start thinking about yourself. What makes you feel good in the skin you’re in.
