How To Define Your Lingerie Style
Do you have a definitive lingerie style? You may never have given it any thought before now, but perhaps you should. Figuring out what suits you can make you feel completely revitalized and glamorous. So, without further ado, here’s how you can choose a style that suits every single inch of you.
Start by going through your drawers
Before you do anything else, you have to go through your drawers. No, seriously. You likely have a whole bunch of old bras, briefs, and who-knows-what’s in there that you should throw out. The sooner you tackle this chore, the easier things will be. The very last thing that you want to do is go ahead and buy new lingerie before you get rid of the stuff that you’re making absolutely no use of right now.
Here’s an uncomfortable truth about us all. We tend to hold onto things – such as lingerie and clothes – that we have no intention of using or, in fact, wearing. We may tell ourselves that we will need them one day, but nothing could be further from the truth. For once, be brutal when it comes to getting rid of the things you don’t use. Trust me, you will feel a whole lot better for doing so.
Let your personality shine through
Next, let’s talk about how you can define your style and choose lingerie pieces that just scream you all over. Believe it or not, your personality actually plays a rather major role in this very thing. The pieces that you end up choosing need to be an expression of who you are on the inside and how you want the world to see you.
So, for example, if you’re sassy and confident, you may choose a daring piece, such as the Casey Plunge Molded Bra. If on the other hand, though, you happen to be cute and feminine, you could get the same style of bra with a gorgeous floral print. If you’re not sure where to start with this task, it could help to write down some words that you associate with yourself. You never know, doing so could reveal a whole lot more than you expect.
Figure out what feels comfortable
When you’re comfortable, you’re confident. It’s that simple. Wearing something that makes you feel awkward and a tad out of sorts will only make you shrink into yourself. That’s not what you need at all. So, for that highly important reason, you absolutely need to make sure that you figure out what feels right for you. Every woman out there is unique, which means that we each have a different style that complements us.
Of course, the first step in this is making sure that you have the right measurements before you begin. Once you’ve figured that out, though, it’s all about finding a style that makes you feel on top of the world. For example, if you feel your best with a little extra umph in the breast area, a padded bra may be the answer to your lingerie prayers.
Equally, some women may find that high waisted briefs make them feel cozy and confident while others may like a lower set alternative. Don’t just go with what you’ve always known; find out what’s just right for your body shape.
Browse the internet for inspiration
Do you know what’s out there in terms of lingerie? It may seem like a silly question, but take the time to stop and think about it. The world of underwear has come a seriously long way in recent years and there are tons of fabulous new styles that you may want to try on for size. But, the bad news is, that if you don’t even know that they exist, you will never get a chance to take a look at them and maybe fall in love with them too!
So, where should you start? Well, the Parfait blog (right here!) has a load of helpful information on fashion choices and new styles out there. Oh, and you can also use social media platforms, such as Pinterest and Instagram, to check out some sets too. Easy!
Don’t be afraid to try new things
The unknown can be a scary place, at the best of times. Still, that does not mean that you should avoid a little healthy experimentation. If you’ve always stuck to the same old ‘tried and tested’ style of lingerie, now could be a great time to change things up a tad. Finding the style that suits you means trying a whole load of different types of bras and briefs and seeing what makes you feel like the goddess you truly are.
When you’ve taken a little inspiration from what there is online, it’s time to start shopping. Go ahead — get a few choice pieces that you would never normally go for. Yes, it’s risky, but you could well find that they suit you in a way that you could never have imagined. The point is that you will never know unless you give it a try.
Remember, you don’t have to ‘define your style’ and stick to it forever. It can be an ever-changing thing. The point is that you get to decide and no one else does. Spending a little while to figure out what it is you like is not only fun, but it can be seriously empowering too. So, why not give it a go?
