Lingerie Suggestions For Different Body Shapes- Part 3

By  | 

In the last part our segment on Lingerie Suggestions for Different Body Shapes Part 3, we take a look at fabulous lingerie suggestions for three more body shapes:


Tall Women: Most tall women usually complain that they have legs which go on forever and moan about their lack of curves. On the other side however, most women would give anything to be tall simply because tall women don’t really have to try hard to get attention! We say that if you are tall, don’t give up on the idea of wearing lingerie just because you may have a lean figure and shuttling from one trial room to the other can be a headache.

Why not go in for the classic brassiere, panties and garter belt look which will make you look incredibly sexy. If you have long legs, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t show them off and look just like a runaway model in them! But of course, all women like having curves and if you want to create the illusion of some, then go for figure hugging lingerie like corsets or bustiers to give you a natural hourglass shape. If you are tall, slim and curvy then play around with different lingerie styles such as horizontal stripes and polka dots or with fabric like a satin corset and a sheer gown with lace trimmings.



Round Petite Women: Indian women are known world over for their petite figures and women who are on the more voluptuous side often choose to layer their figures in salwar-kameez suits or in sarees. Unfortunately, lingerie is again a term that is mostly associated with slim women and hence a lot of Indian women who may have natural curves don’t really think twice about buying some for themselves.

If, you would like to create the illusion of being taller than you actually are, then opt for a nightie or a silk gown which has long slits on the side. Slits add a natural sexiness to the lingerie itself and also allow you to move around more comfortably. It would be advisable to avoid bustiers and corsets but you could give babydolls a try as they hide away any problem areas effortlessly. We suggest opting for babydolls that are made from soft fabric like satin or silk and to avoid going for sheer, pastel or white shades. You may find that dark shades do give the appearance of a slimmer silhouette but that does not mean you have to wear only black. Think sensuous dark shades like peacock blue, wine red, earth brown and royal purple instead.


Plus- sized Women: Women who are full-figured or overweight often face a problem when it comes to getting the right clothes which look great on them. The problem areas may vary from one woman to another although a voluptuous bust, tummy flab and plump thighs are quite common. Whatever your problem areas may be, there is the perfect lingerie for you but yes, it would mean that you also have to try out different styles to see what works best for you.

If you don’t mind showing off your bust, then corsets are definitely a great choice. The best part about wearing one is that it highlights the bust area so well and instantly slims the waist and tummy area simultaneously too. But make sure you go in for a high quality one. On the other hand, if showing off so much skin isn’t your thing, then why not opt for a sexy night-gown or a negligee which will cling to your figure and yet hide any problem areas beautifully? Avoid sheer fabric as that will again draw attention to the areas you want to hide. Side slits will also look great as will a slightly low neckline as well.
