Have you been thinking about dabbling in the world of sexy lingerie but don’t know where to start?
If you’re just starting out or want to change things up, why not consider a teddy? A one-piece lingerie item that can cover the spectrum - from super-hot and sultry to sweet and demure. Think of it as starting with something that resembles a one-piece swimsuit or bodysuit – just way more sexy and with plenty of options.
The teddy first appeared in the late 1910s as a one-piece undergarment which combined camisole and knickers to wear under the shorter dresses which came into fashion around the same time. Their popularity as an undergarment grew during World War II as started to wear more trousers – but they have definitely evolved into something a lot sexier in modern times.
Teddy lingerie is one of the most flattering lingerie styles that you can opt for if you're tummy conscious but still want to spice things up in the lingerie department.
There are a range of styles to choose from, so there is bound to be one that tickles your fancy.
Deep V-necks offers gorgeous cleavage, a halter-style will be perfect for those worried about a longer torso and if you are looking for show off a narrow waist? Cut-out details are your friend.
If you want a bit more coverage, teddies in a vintage style are slightly more modest than their modern counterparts, with a looser fit and short-style bottoms instead of a revealing thong or high cut up to your waist.
Teddies can be made from plenty of different materials, think sheer lace, satin, silk, and mesh so you can tailor it to match your outfit or really make a statement.
A little bit of colour and lace can go a long way.
Whatever lingerie you choose, it is important that it makes you feel sexy, comfortable and confident.
As a bonus, some teddies can go from day to night. Fashion bloggers are tucking them into high-waisted shorts or jeans and celebs are flashing them on the red carpet – you get two outfits for the price of one!
