Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and it’s never too early to start thinking about what you are going to wear on the most romantic day of the year! For those intimate moments with your lover (or with yourself) this V-Day, might we suggest wearing a lingerie dress?

Lingerie dresses are one of our favorite styles of lingerie. They are elegant and timeless pieces that will make you feel like the irresistible goddess you are. Here’s why you need to give your wardrobe a much-needed boost with a lingerie dress. 

What is a lingerie dress?

Lingerie dresses were very popular in the 1920s throughout Europe and North America.

They were called lingerie dresses because of the light white and neutral cotton and laces that were used to make them. These pieces were primarily used for daytime wear but were also acceptable for informal events during the summer.

Lingerie dresses back then were much different than the lingerie dresses we know today!

Today, lingerie dresses come in many shapes, lengths, colors, and fabrics. They show a lot more skin and are mostly worn inside the bedroom, but every now and then you’ll stumble into a style you can wear just about everywhere.

When to wear a lingerie dress?

Let’s be honest—sexy lingerie is always a good idea, and lingerie dresses are no exception.

These gorgeous gowns are comfortable and increase your confidence like crazy! When you wear a lingerie dress, it’s totally normal to feel like Aphrodite, the goddess of love, beauty and pleasure—so don’t be shy about ruling your domain. 😉

Here are some instances where you may want to slip on a lingerie dress: 

  • Honeymoon and Wedding Night
  • After having one of the biggest days of your life, you need something special to remember these moments forever. Every aspect should be as perfect as you are! A classic look always works, but there are styles for all tastes.

  • Your birthday
  • Your birthday is the only day that you get each year to celebrate being you! It’s also a great excuse to splurge on something new because you deserve it—go bold and fun with this occasion.
  • Valentine's Day
  • Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year and also the perfect time to be adventurous and try out different types of lingerie. Red and pinks are traditional colors for this holiday but black is always a great choice too!
  • Anniversary 
  • No matter how long you’ve been together, trying something new and keeping your relationship exciting can mean a lot to your partner. Lingerie is one of the best ways to show you care!
  • A night-in alone 
  • Wearing lingerie isn’t always about looking good for someone else. If you’re having a night-in alone, pull out your favorite lingerie dress and sip on a glass of wine on the couch. It is a very relaxing (and fabulous!) way to wind down after a long week.

  • The holidays
  • Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to get all of the lingerie love. Snag a new piece for St. Patrick’s Day to make your partner feel lucky. Grab something for the Fourth of July to celebrate with a bang!
