How to Buy the Right Lingerie

Very few women are able to fit themselves in the right lingerie. Learn some rules of thumb which will help you to buy the right lingerie and feel beautiful inside.

A woman is always playing different roles in her life like mother, daughter, sister, wife, a boss and a home maker. While playing all these roles, she has very little time for herself. The time spent for taking bath or in a beauty parlour is the only time which she spends for herself. In this way most of the women skip the step to find right lingerie. As a result many women find them self in wrong sizes and uncomfortable lingerie.

Clothing is the very important part of lifestyle for both men and women. In case of women the most important aspect in clothing and the most neglected is the inner wear. Nobody wants to spend extra time on choosing the perfect lingerie except for weddings. But it is a fact that proper lingerie enables women to be more confident and stylish. Read on and find how to buy right lingerie for yourself.

Tips for Buying the Right Lingerie

Have a quick look at the rules of thumb for buying right lingerie. Wearing correct lingerie under any outfit implies your actual dressing sense. Taking care of such small things will help you to carry yourself in a better manner. Looking beautiful is a lot about how you carry your self.


Size is the most important factor for buying right lingerie. You should note down the measurement across your bust at the fullest position and under your bust. Quite often the measurement across the bust is considered while selecting the lingerie. If you want to find the cup sizes take the difference of the sizes across bust and below the bust.


The perfect lingerie for you is the one in which you find yourself comfortable. The comfort level may differ in each case. Some women want maximum support, some may prefer just a lift. Many of the women want to shape up their body and some prefer to use extra padded lingerie.

You can go for cotton straps or elastic ones as per your requirement. You can select your lingerie according to the type of cloth which gives you more comfort. It can be cotton, synthetic or semi-cotton.

It is better if you select your lingerie according to clothes you wear. Along with the comfort factor your lingerie should also compliment the clothes which you are wearing.


Black or white is the basic colour which most of the women opt for. However it is possible to have fun with colours while buying lingerie. Your skin and hair colour plays the vital role for selecting the lingerie colour. You can select a colour which exactly matches your skin. If you are buying lingerie for party wear then you should consider the dress colour.

If you are fair you can try shades of red. Pink and lavender shades will also suit you. If your skin colour is warmer you can try powdery and lighter shades. You can also try contrast colours.


Looking stylish is the desire of every woman. Sometimes women and men too feel awkward to wear stylish clothes. But the matter of lingerie is different. Nobody bothers what kind of lingerie you are wearing. This gives you full freedom to try different styles of lingerie. You can try the ones with lace or a different fabric like silk or satin. You can also go for baby doll lingerie or thongs. Try some thing with animal prints which will bring out the hidden wildness in you.

You should be very careful when you buy bridal lingerie for your wedding dress. You should try your lingerie with you wedding dress and make sure that it goes well with it. It should actually match the style and pattern of your wedding dress. This will help you to find out whether you will be able to carry your self comfortably or not.

These are some ways of deciding how you can find right lingerie for yourself. As lingerie is an important part of your wardrobe you must take out some time to buy the perfect lingerie for yourself. Don't you want to feel beautiful inside out?

A lot of times even after we buy a bra even after trying it on in the shop, we find them to be of the wrong size after reaching home. The main reason behind buying ill fitted bras is because we do not know how to wear them the right way. There is a right way to put on your bras. Wearing them the wrong way can harm your breasts. Follow these few steps to wear your bra the right way.

Put on the bra using the band using the hooks. You can put in on at the back or even put it on in the front and then twist it towards the back.
Lean forward and put the straps onto your shoulders. The straps should not be too loose or tight. You can adjust them accordingly.
The most important step is to fill the cups of the bra with your breasts. Use your hands and push in your breasts not sparing the fat on the sides of your armpit. The flesh of your breasts should fill out the bra cups and not spill out over the top or on the sides.
Make sure the band is resting at the base of your breast line in a straight line.

Stylish lingerie makes you feel confident. It is basically for comfort mixed with style.

I feel black lingerie should be worn only with dark coloured dresses otherwise they create a bad impression.

White or cream is the basic colour in lingerie and one should have these. Other colours are not as common and should be worn with caution
