January 16, 2020

lace lingerie

Lace lingerie is so beautiful, dainty, and timeless (in our humble opinion).

Lace fabrics have been around since the sixteenth century and originated in Europe. Lace fabrics used to be handmade, but the lace lingerie made today by sewing machines is just as breathtaking!

From bras to teddies, there are pieces available for every shape, size, and personal style. If you are looking to add something lacy to your closet, we’re here to help you do so with confidence. We’ve gathered a list of some of our favorite pieces and included some tips on how to take care of them. 


Different types of lace lingerie

Let’s be honest, shopping for lingerie can be overwhelming.

There’s so much more to the world of undergarments than bras and panties. However, sometimes finding something that encompasses your style isn’t easy, and it can take the fun out of looking for a new piece. Trust us: We’ve been there, girl.

Over the years, our Lingerie Blog editors have created several guides to buying lingerie, but this one is special. Here’s a guide for ladies who love lace. 

Lacy Babydolls

Babydolls are the perfect piece of lingerie to be sexy and sultry behind closed doors.

One of the best parts about this type of lingerie is that it looks good on everyone.The piece pictured above, in particular, is very classy with cut-outs on the side to show just enough skin. The v-neck and strappy features ramp up the flirty factor.

Lacy Bra Sets

Every girl loves a good bra-and-panty set—especially when it fits like a glove and makes you feel unstoppable. On-trend yet unique, the set pictured above is a bold and strappy look with a peek-a-boo high-waisted panty that will hug your curves in all the right places.

We love that the bra does not have underwire—extra points for comfort! You could pair this sexy set with a low-cut top for a night out as well.

Lacy Bralettes

Mainly defined by its lack of underwire, a bralette is a staple for any woman. It doesn’t dig and pinch into the skin like some bras can—this comfy piece was made for all-day wear. Bralettes are another piece of lingerie that you can wear for a night out.

With so many uses, this sexy bra works overtime, and we love that about it.

Despite their lack of underwire, bralettes still provide support, shaping the breast line perfectly like the one shown above. The gray is a very simple and versatile choice, while the included lace underwear is fun and flirty with a surprise on the backside.😉

Lacy Bodysuits

Bodysuits are lovely for any occasion and have become a wardrobe staple for the modern woman. They come in many different styles—tanks, camis, long- and short-sleeves—so finding a favorite (or three) isn’t hard.

One of our current favorites is the Jasmine bodysuit (above). It features a deep- neckline for an extra-flattering figure, plus lace cutouts on the sides and back.

Lacy Chemises

A chemise is an elegant piece, known for its delicate lace details. This piece shown above is one of our favorites because it is paired with matching thigh high stockings—va-va-voom! The super stretchy material hugging every curve doesn’t hurt, either.

Let’s be honest: Whodoesn’t love a black, lacy piece of lingerie?

Lacy Gowns
