Purchasing lingerie, regardless of the occasion, can be both overwhelming and terrifying – especially if this an area you haven’t explored in depth before. Even if you want to choose something beautiful to wear on your honeymoon, the vulnerable feeling that comes along with the process sometimes deters women from indulging on a sexy undergarment for this momentous and special time. If you’re thinking about passing on packing a steamy lingerie set, consider a few important points.
If you choose correctly, lingerie can make you feel sexy. The sexier you feel, the sexier and more adventurous you will be in the bedroom. Lingerie can amp up the excitement, and more importantly, your romantic connection. All it takes is picking the right piece for you.
So how do you choose a piece correctly? You don’t need to go out and buy something horribly uncomfortable (itchy lace and tight boning come to mind) to turn your partner on. You also don’t have to spend a ton. In fact, it’s actually the opposite. Make sure that whatever sleepwear you choose isn’t just silky and sexy, but that you feel like a million bucks in it. You’ll need to fall in love with whatever piece of lingerie you decide on before your spouse can. The more confident you feel, the more that feeling will be evident to your partner. Basically confidence goes further than any amount of revealing lace. Choose a piece that feels like you and brings out that confidence.
If you’re still overwhelmed by the many options available, start by browsing the below list, which has some of the best pieces available at a variety of costs. There’s no need to keep your undergarments white or ivory, so keep in mind that many of the below options are available in alternative colors.
If you don’t think any of these choices will bring out that sexy confidence, you can check out some of the most popular lingerie sets and find one that’s just right for you.
1. Four Piece White Lace Lingerie Set
The highlight of this set is the lace robe and it would undoubtedly be worth the entire cost of the set for that piece alone. All four pieces (the bra, panties, robe, and sash) are made with delicate white lace with a beautiful fringe lining the edges. The fabric is soft and comfortable, a key component when considering any lingerie set. Given the lack of support in the bra and the peek-a-boo slit, this is definitely not a set that would be as practical outside of the bedroom. If this white lace robe isn’t quite your style, consider browsing some other robe options and either assembling your own set or wearing it solo.
Price: $15.99 (56 percent off MSRP)
2. Calvin Klein Seduce Bodysuit
This is probably the image that comes to mind with the mention of honeymoon lingerie. The bodysuit has a number of delicate, feminine details, that are paired with a sexy, seductive and revealing cut. The plunging lace trimmed neckline stops at a more opaque satin bodice, so it shows just the right amount. Both the bodysuit and garter straps are adjustable, giving you a bit more flexibility with sizing depending on the length of your torso and legs. While white is a more traditional bridal color, feel free to stray from that on your honeymoon. This black bodysuit, also by Calvin Klein, is a stunning choice.
Price: $67.99 – $78 depending on size
3. Dreamgirl Satin Chemise & Thong Set
If you’re looking for a piece of white lingerie that’s classy and comfortable, but still sexy, this piece is the answer. While it might not be the first thing your spouse notices, the dropped back is especially sexy, lined with gorgeous scalloped edges. The adjustable straps are extremely convenient, allowing you to play with the coverage around your chest and also the length of the dress until it feels just right. While you can’t sleep comfortably in some lingerie, that’s not the case with this piece. It’s loose enough that you won’t feel the need to change back into your go-to pajamas before falling asleep. Dreamgirl is a leading lingerie retailer with many top rated options to choose from if this piece isn’t for you.
Price: $19.99 – $40
4. Jezebel Rachel Chemise With Thong
Babydoll dresses and chemises tend to be the most popular lingerie choice for several reasons. This cut is extremely approachable, especially if lingerie isn’t something you typically wear. These types of garments typically cover the belly and hips, a comforting fact to many women. This one is made with sheer floral lace and laced ribbon detailing. The contoured cups provide lift and shape. This set also comes with a matching thong, but feel free to sub it out for another option. If you’re looking to get a little bit kitschy, consider this pair of “Mrs.” white lace panties.
5. Hanky Panky Peek-a-Boo Bralette
You don’t need to stray too far from your everyday undergarments to impress your spouse on your honeymoon with something sexy. Sometimes simplicity can go a long way, especially with the right touches. This is one of those pieces that’s designed with the perfect sexy elements. The gorgeous ivory lace offers a bit of warmth, a complementary color for many skin tones. The best part however, is the beautiful delicately thin ribbon, which cascades down the torso, making you look like a present ready to be unwrapped. While listed separately, don’t forget to purchase the matching panties, designed with a full coverage back and the same ribbon detailing along the hips. Looking to spice thing up a little more? Grab this matching white lace eye mask.
6. eberjey Women’s I Do Teddy
If you’d like to purchase something gorgeous enough for very special occasions (like your honeymoon), but that’s also comfortable enough to wear everyday, this takes your standard pajama sets to the next level. This romper is an extremely light blue color, which is subtle enough to still look very bridal. If you’re looking to purchase a lingerie themed bridal shower or bachelorette party gift, this is also a great option without being too suggestive. The soft jersey fabric is trimmed in scalloped white lace around the plunging neckline and swingy shorts. It’s secured with a front button closure and features adjustable straps and an elastic waist. If you like the idea of soft jersey fabric but aren’t so sure about the romper, eberjey also makes a similar item in a babydoll nightgown cut. Known for being comfortable yet attractive, eberjey offers a plethora of options. If neither of these are your style you can check out their top rated garments here.
7. LAPAYA Bridal Lace Dress & Thong
This lingerie set is an excellently executed copy of a similar set sold at Victoria’s Secret for more than three times the cost. You won’t be able to notice a difference in quality between the two, so we recommend this much less expensive option. The babydoll, which is made to be just slightly see through, has a deep neckline with adjustable spaghetti straps. It’s also decorated with a front bow, a beautiful feminine detail. The back dips down low, which is one of the sexiest aspects of the set. A matching thong is included. This is another flattering cut for all body types, which can help with that building of confidence. This similarly designed set has a more ivory hue if that color is more appealing to you.
Price: $15.99 (46 percent off MSRP)
8. Lace Lingerie Gown With Sleeves
There’s no question that you’ll feel like a goddess in this lace gown. The dress offers a lot of coverage, but even with the additional coverage, it does not lack sex appeal. When trying to determine a size, do keep in mind that the gown has quite a bit of stretch, so you may want to size down. The gown comes alone so if you’re looking to layer underneath, consider a black lace bra and panty set. The contrasting colors will really stand out. If you’re interested in other lace gown options, this beautiful one is available in white, black, violet, and red.
Price: $19.99 (13 percent off MSRP)
9. L’Agent Gianna Basque Corset
If you have the budget to splurge on your honeymoon lingerie attire, Agent Provocateur is well known for their incredibly beautiful, high end, luxurious pieces of lingerie. The designer details are made evident through the mesh bodice boning and the beautiful lace bra cups – both which support the price tag of the corset. If you’re spending the extra money, you might as well go the extra mile and purchase a pair of heels to really wow your partner. These blush colored stilettos would certainly do the trick.
10. Betsey Johnson Dot Mesh Babydoll
This little babydoll just screams bridal and honeymoon. It’s a tough call which of the two to use it for, as it would truly work nicely for both. Betsey Johnson has an entire line of bridal and honeymoon specific pieces that are so adorable, fun, and sexy. The varying lace finishes (floral and polka dots), the small blue bow on the chest, and the delicate cap sleeves are all attractive and unique details that will add to your overall look and internal feeling of confidence.
Price: $18.99 (61 percent off MSRP)
