Tips on choosing right teddy
Teddy is a body-hugging undergarment that usually comes in one piece. Sexy and appealing teddy can also serve as an everyday underwear providing support where it’s needed. Sheer or leather, sleek or loose teddy is both sexy lingerie and sleepwear. There are many teddy styles and designs so we prepared some tips on choosing right teddy.
Going a little back in history we see teddy worn as an undergarment in 1920s (called camiknickers back then) then losing its popularity by the end of 1940s. However, since 1990s teddy is a great part of lingerie industry. Teddy has also become an independent fashion outerwear.
Types of teddies. Teddies can be sleek and body-hugging as well as they can be loose, which is great for concealing a small tummy. Sleek teddy can elongate your legs, paired with stockings and heels teddy will help your dream of long sexy legs come true.
Loose teddies are great as sleepwear, they don’t ride up and the loose fit doesn’t constrain movements while you’re sleeping. Full-figured women can opt for a two-piece teddy camisole style. It consists of the top and high cut panties for tummy control.
Peek-a-boo teddies vary. Such teddies can have side cut outs to accentuate the waistline, or breast cut-outs to show the nipples. Crotchless teddies are also pretty common, though look carefully at the quality of performance and fabrics, overall design not to choose a tacky teddy.
There are also bare-back teddies, which provide a little support to the breasts. Teddies may also have removable suspender straps. Teddies can be strapless but when choosing a teddy that has straps remember that adjustable straps are very helpful in further fitting your teddy so try buying teddies that have those.
Detailing. Detailing is really up to you. There are plenty of designs that can suit even the peckish ones. Lace, bows and ribbons, ruffles and frill trimming, fringe and even chains. Though be careful with all those spicy sequins and rhinestones and chains not to scratch yourself or your partner.
Fabrics. There are teddies made of lots of different fabrics sheer and opaque, shiny and solid. If you want a soft pleasant feel in your sleep choose silk and satin loose teddies. As for a special night opt for semi-sheer, lace, or chiffon teddies.
If teddy suits your individuality and style then go for it, experiment with teddy types, fabrics and detailing.
