Choosing The Perfect Lingerie For Your Body Shape

Want to update your lingerie collection but not sure where to start? The best way to choose the right lingerie is to think about your body shape. This will help you to pick a style and shape that will boost your assets, highlight your best features, and help you to feel particularly confident.

If you’re buying for someone else, you can take cues from their current collection to find something that suits their style and taste. And if you’re shopping for yourself, you can use this guide to step outside of your comfort zone and find something that makes you feel special.

How to choose lingerie for your body shape

The first step to choosing lingerie for your body shape is to take a good look at yourself in the mirror. Are you tall or shorter? Do you have long limbs or short limbs? Do you have a larger or average bust? Do you have a well-defined waist? And do you have wide or average hips?

Once you have a realistic view of your body, you can then start to pick designs that will work best with your assets.

Lingerie for an hourglass shape

An hourglass figure is very enviable, with a large bust, wide hips and well-defined waist. Choose styles that cinch you in at the waist, like corsets, basques and long-line bras. With a fuller bust, you’ll want to choose underwire options that will keep you supported. And with larger assets, you’ll also want to avoid cage and bandage designs, as these can cut into you. You can, however, layer these over another bra.

Lingerie for a pear shape

A pear body shape is where your hips and bottom are wider than your upper half, giving you a lovely hourglass silhouette from behind. You might want to try thong styles to elongate your legs or Brazilian brief styles that will highlight your derriere. If you have a fuller bust, choose balconette bras or plunge bras to help give you proper support. If you’re self-conscious about your lower half, try a teddy that will skim over your hips and boost your bust.

Lingerie for an apple shape

Lingerie for an apple shape

An apple body shape is where your shoulders are wider than your hips and you might have a fuller bust and waist. You can try an empire-line bra to help support your bust, while also cinching in at the waist. Or, go for a balconette style that will also give you good coverage. A simple bra set is a great way to highlight your enviable figure.

Lingerie for a petite figure

If you’re petite, you might want to choose designs that will make you appear taller. Try long-line bras or corsets that will give you extra length. Or, go for vertical stripes or patterns down your body. And when it comes to knickers, try high-cut styles to make your legs look even longer. Avoid bodystocking styles as these can swamp your figure.

Lingerie for an athletic shape

If you have a column-shaped figure, you’re in luck. This is a highly desirable shape and there is a lot you can do to create the illusion of curves with your svelte figure. Choose styles that will give you some coverage and structure, like a balconette bra or a long-line bralette. You can also try layering different items to create more interest. And don’t shy away from trying something with lots of straps or detailing, as this will add texture and dimension to your look.

Closing thoughts

There are so many styles and shapes of lingerie to choose from, it can be tricky to know where to start. But by thinking about your body shape, you can narrow down the options and find something that will work best for you. So, take a good look at yourself in the mirror and start exploring the different designs that will help you to feel confident and sexy.
