Body Shape Guide for Lingerie

Sexy lingerie is just like any clothing – if it fits perfectly, you will look and feel amazing. Get it wrong and you end up looking like a pricked sausage - no matter how sexy and stunning your figure may be!

With so many different styles and designs in corsets, chemises, bodysuits and many more, it can be quite difficult to know what’s what and where to start. Hopefully our style guide has given you some ideas, but the real trick to getting lingerie right is finding the styles that are best suited to your body shape and make the most of your assets.

You’ve got it so flaunt it! We are beautifully unique and come in different shapes and sizes, but most of us will fall into a ‘body shape type’. Knowing your shape means you can show off your best bits with confidence in the sexiest of erotic lingerie. Decide which body type best matches your shape and OWN IT!

Pear: Full and curvy around the bum, hips and thighs with a small bust and shoulders

Apple: Fuller figure up top and around the middle with slim legs 

Curves / Hourglass: Curvy top to bottom, bust, hips, thighs and bum 

Athletic / Rectangle: Slim all over without curves 

Still not sure which shape you are? Check your shape on the shape calculator.

Now let’s take a look at the styles that best flatter your beautiful bod!

Pear - Baby got back! Full knickers will flatter your bootylicious shape – wear with a bralette that will draw attention to your small waist going down into that curvy bottom. Your shape rocks the underwear as outerwear look, with a bralette paired with tight high waist jeans you’ll give Khloe Kardashian a run for her money! Keep thongs and g-strings for underneath a sheer chemise or babydoll.

Apple - Go big or go home! Show off your slim pins with sexy hold-ups and a short floaty babydoll that will skim over your shape to give a seductive but comfortable style. Feel a bit more comfortable with your curves? Go for it with a stylish and erotic bodysuit with a plunging back or neck line.

Curves / Hourglass - You’ve got that Marilyn Monroe vibe going on! Embrace that Hollywood shape that even Beyonce would be proud of with sexy, classic pieces such as corsets and basques. Draw attention to your va-va-voom bottom with a short, tight chemise with suspenders or suspender belt that will lengthen your legs and draw attention to your sexy silhouette. The one question will be…. Can he handle your curves?

Athletic / Rectangle - Sexy and slender from top to bottom with subtle curves! Lucky you - you can virtually take your pick when it comes to sexy lingerie. Bodystockings are your friend as you can pull off the skin-tight head to toe look perfectly. Open cup bras or bralettes with G-strings look effortlessly sexy and a pretty babydoll will sit just right on you if you want to go for that romantic vibe.

Confidence is Key

When you’re killing it in hot lingerie, stockings and heels, the bits you’re not quite happy with will melt away. Show off your assets and give off an air of confidence, feel good about you and you will look fierce!
