BUYING LINGERIE CAN BE NERVE-RACKING. WILL HE LOVE IT OR JUST BE SO-SO ABOUT IT? WE ROUNDED UP FIVE TYPES OF SIZZLING ENSEMBLES THAT SUIT DIFFERENT TYPES OF MEN. IDENTIFY YOUR GUY, AND THEN SURPRISE HIM WITH A SIZZLING NIGHT OF DRESS-UP.
The Girly Look
If you’ve got a playful, bubbly personality, and your significant other loves nothing more than to bring out that side of you, then he’d probably love to see you in some flirty, girly lingerie. Think a lace baby doll – which, it bears mentioning, does wonders for your body; it’s just so flowy and forgiving. And if you don a super-short baby doll, you can show off those sexy gams of yours — perhaps in a cute pair of peep-toe pumps!
The Vampy Look
If your hubby likes things mega-hot in the bedroom, indulge his erotic side by dressing up like the sexpot you are! Your best bet: Pull on a formfitting teddy or a corset-and-G-string combo (lacy or satin, it’s up to you), and kick up the seduction factor with — you guessed it — some thigh-high stockings and a pair of garters that he won’t be able to resist. Don’t skimp on the shoes; this look requires a 4-inch heel at least. Trust us, you won’t be walking in them much.
The Sporty Look
Does your man like seeing you in his button-down work shirt? Then he may be turned on by the sporty look. Try this on for size: A pair of cotton or lace boy shorts (bonus points for a kitschy phrase on the back — or his name!) and a white men’s tank-top undershirt. Add knee-high athletic socks — you know, the ones with the stripes on top — and a pair of sneakers. Top it off with some pigtails and you’re bound to hit a home run tonight.
The Sophisticated Look
Does your guy go gaga when he sees you dressed to the nines in an elegant, swanky number? Lingerie doesn’t always have to be super-revealing (it’s all coming off eventually anyway!). Translate his preference for classy eveningwear into the bedroom by wrapping yourself up in a peignoir — a long, silky gown — plus a matching robe. Top it off with some lacy stilettos, and strut your stuff over to the bed like the class act you are.
The Role-Playing Look
If you’ve ever role-played together — and loved every minute of it — then odds are your man would like to see you dressed up in some novelty lingerie. We’re not talking the kitschy kind. Instead, go for one of the tried-and-true male fantasies, like a DIY schoolgirl look (it’s a winner every time). The schoolgirl look is easily accomplished by donning a way-short plaid skirt (this one isn’t making it past the principal’s office!), a tight white button-down tied off to show your midriff, white cotton knee-highs and a pair of Mary Jane-style heels. You’ll enjoy detention more than you ever thought possible.
