We’ve said it countless times: lingerie is a powerful medium that can transform the way we feel about ourselves and our bodies. We can find styles that speak to us, who we are, our personalities, and our sense of personal style. Some of us like to wear matching sets, while others just mix and match products that make us feel good or serve a specific purpose. To further inspire lingerie’s positive influence on us, we’ve gathered 7 quotes about lingerie to feel good about.
Lingerie is my next love after clothing; I think it is what is worn underneath that really inspires a woman to feel beautiful in her clothes – that inner, secret glamour.
It is true that the foundation of our outfits can alter how we feel in our clothes. If our bra sits right and gives us the lift we need, then we’ll fill out our tops correctly without bulges that don’t actually exist. If we wear a seamless panty with a slim-fitting skirt, we’ll avoid panty lines that don’t complement our assets. If you’re uncomfortable in what you’re wearing, it’ll show through despite how fabulous your outfit might be.
I think lingerie plays a big part in how you carry yourself. –Nicole Ritchie
When we’re feeling attractive and confident, we tend to take more care in our posture, hold our heads a little higher, and strut a little stronger down the street. Once again, our lingerie choices can have a big impact on this, as the right fit and style will make us feel secure and help our clothes fit us better.
Life is like underwear; change is good. –Unknown
Of course, we all know that changing our underwear is crucial for hygienic purposes. What we gather from this quote, however, is the inspiration to change up what you wear every now and then to experience something different. Do you wear thongs to avoid panty lines? A sweet cheeky panty will do the same, but is a different fit and flatters every bum so nicely. Do you just opt for practical white briefs? Try a lacy panty in a brilliant floral pattern. Changing simple things like this can truly change our lives and give us more excitement.
For me, wearing lingerie isn’t about anyone else but me. If I dressed for others I would be a miserable person. –Ashley Graham
This attitude is one we all need to have. At the end of the day, we are always with ourselves, and so it’s vital for us to do things that make us happy despite what anyone else thinks, regardless of what role they play in our lives. We’ll never be able to please everyone, and embarking on that quest will always lead to disappointment. Whatever makes us feel sexy is the type of lingerie we need to be wearing.
Lingerie is the maximum expression of a woman’s femininity. –Dolce and Gabanna
This quote could be interpreted in many ways, but we take it as an ode to what lingerie designers intend to do when they make lingerie. Lingerie is intended to enhance the beauty of our bodies, protect our bodies from certain elements, and ensure support and comfort. It’s always meant to be flattering. Lingerie can help us embrace our bodies, no matter what they look like.
Wear fabulous lingerie, even if no one is going to see it. –Myla London
We don’t have to wear lacy bras and semi-sheer panties because we’re hoping to get a reaction out of someone. There’s no reason why you can’t dress yourself in sexy lingerie even if you’re single. While we can appreciate why one may want to show off the art of their fabulous lingerie to whomever, that’s not its sole purpose. If it makes you happy and boosts your confident, just wear it for yourself!
Lingerie is not about seducing men; it’s about embracing womanhood. –Dita Von Teese
You all know we LOVE this quote, as it’s displayed on our Bra Doctor Blog front page! We obviously cannot deny that lingerie does hold a power of seduction over men, and using it for that purpose is totally okay. However, once again, that’s not why it exists. When we take pride in the lingerie we wear, we are forced to embrace our womanhood as we have to acknowledge it in order to wear the right stuff. We can be proud of our bodies while wearing lingerie because every woman looks great in it.
