In daylight, Spanx are a girl’s best friend. But when you slip off that pencil skirt and turn in for the evening, you’ll want something comfortable and alluring—that means lingerie that plays to your assets, and hides the less-than-perfect. You don’t have to wait to lose weight or tone up to look and feel great in lingerie. We’ve got some suggestions for your body type below.
Even Out a Pear Shape
To camouflage a larger bottom half, we love short robes and A-line chemises; a robe’s playful silhouette flows over hips and thighs, but you can keep the hemline well above the knee for a flirty feel.
When shopping for sexy chemises, look for designs that have a seam just below the bust, and that flow out—don’t cling—from there. They’ll glide over your bottom, but will highlight your shoulders and decolletage beautifully.
Hide a Tummy
For the ultimate in comfortable-sexy, don’t underestimate the power of a tee that hides your tummy, paired with a cute pair of boy shorts.
The same sort of chemise that works to balance a pear shape can also work with a larger middle—better yet, look for a miniskirt length, and a bodice with no seams at all, that hangs straight down from the neckline.
Flatter a Large Bust
It’s tough to find the best bras for big breasts. For sexy options that you’ll actually want to show off, we recommend three fantastic brands: Freya, Fantasie, and Le Mystere, all of which carry cup sizes up to F (some styles go up to H).
For a bra you can wear under dresses and sweaters, too, look for a thick strap for support, and a balcony cup with thicker fabric on the bottom half, to supplement a lacy or more gossamer upper cup.
