Shopping for lingerie can be tricky, even when it comes to staples such as brassieres and panties. Many women have been buying the same style and size of underthings for years, without realizing that they are actually buying the incorrect size or that they’re buying a style that is unflattering for their body type.
If you think you might be wearing the wrong size bra, it is a good idea to go to your local lingerie store and have yourself sized. Even if you were sized years ago, your body has likely changed since then, which means that your breast size might have increased or decreased. It might even be a good idea to get a second opinion and be sized by more than one person. Measurements can be off, especially if you are sized with your clothes on (e.g., a bulky sweater or sweatshirt on), which can throw off results.
Support and Sex Appeal
Once you have your accurate size, think about what you are looking for in a bra. If you need extra support and lift, you might consider an underwire. Whatever you are looking for, just make sure that the fit is comfortable and that the straps don’t cut into your shoulders or back.
Good Thongs vs. Bad Thongs
Isn't it amazing how panty lines can add a good five pounds to your rear view? That's why thongs are a veritable godsend. They provide sexy back-end smoothness in our favorite hip-hugging pants or skirts in a surprisingly comfortable way that can make us say farewell to VPL's (visible panty lines) forever!
There's a world of difference, though, between good thongs and bad thongs. Thongs that are not worthy of your lingerie collection include those made of synthetic fibers and those with any part resembling a shoestring. Bad thongs chafe your most sensitive parts and can transfer bacteria to where you don't want it. (Think about what happens when you wipe yourself from back to front, instead of from front to back.)
Good thongs are made of breathable, flexible material. They move with you and let air get where it needs to. This reduces the risk of irritation and yeast infections.

There are so many flattering and comfortable brands of lingerie out there, and with such a wide variety of colors and styles, there really is something for every body. It’s about finding the style that suits your body type and makes you feel sexy and seductive in your own skin.
