8 Lingerie Commandments For Every 20-Something Girl!


For a woman who is in the prime of her youth, lingerie is an everyday concern. And there are certain unsaid rules we know now that we wish we knew earlier. Here are 8 lingerie rules, which are more like commandments for every twenty-something woman! You must remember them and you must share them!

1. Sexy Lingerie Is Not Just For Sexual Matters!

How many of you have seen a sexy babydoll or a corset and thought that you might buy that when you get married or when you want to surprise your boyfriend? That’s the attitude that needs to change. Yes, you can dress sexy for the man, but better than that, you can dress sexy for yourself. Lacy bras, sexy panties or even satin teddies can and should be worn when you are on your own too! It’s like an instant boost for your mood and keeps you connected to your sensuality!

2. The Hunt For The Perfect Bra Needs To End At Some Point!

Bras are that one clothing item that always contour and hug your body like a second skin. So it’s but natural that you feel like there is nothing that fits flawlessly – unless it’s custom made, but nobody has time for that. While this may be true for some, it doesn’t mean you can’t find something close to perfect. There are many brand options available and different cup sizes that might fit you. Just make sure to try them out though!

3. Do Not Be Embarrassed About The Type You Choose To Wear!

Tastes are different, preferences are different. Some like to keep it simple by wearing basic cuts in neutrals colours. Yet, there are many who have bras and panties that belong to every spectrum of the colour wheel. You might be someone who only likes wired bras and then there are women out there who prefer bralettes. It’s your choice, pick what you want but keep in mind that different bra styles serve different purposes too. Like some don’t let your nipples show through.
