It is 2022 and I have noticed that plain, comfortable undergarments are becoming increasingly popular. Instead of reaching for underwire bras and extravagant panties, women are getting behind plain, nude colored cotton undergarments. I am all for comfort, but I definitely think women should still be investing in beautiful lingerie. Today I’m sharing 5 empowering reasons to wear lingerie more often.
A *brief* history of sexy lingerie
Women have been wearing elaborate undergarments since the 1700s. Stays/corsets were designed to create a tiny waist and lifting the breasts. Stays were bulkier and more complex than what they are like today. In my opinion, they looked hot and uncomfortable. Nevertheless, they were an essential during that time.
In the 1800s during the Victorian era, corsets were less bulky and more colorful. They were still designed to lift the breasts. The designs became much more elaborate as well.
Fast forward to the 1950’s and women are now wearing underwear for photo shoots. Pin-up girls were taking the country by storm and now it was becoming an increasingly popular trend.
Victoria’s Secret changed the way people looked at lingerie. They created beautiful lingerie that was affordable for most people. Lots of lingerie is extremely expensive. Victoria’s Secret made lingerie more of an every day thing for women to wear.
I want to make myself very clear before I continue on with these important talking points. I believe that you should invest in lingerie and wear it for yourself, not for anybody else. Of course if you have someone in your life that will benefit from it, that is great. But I think you should wear lingerie to empower yourself.
Now that we know a little bit about lingerie, let’s talk about the reasons why you should wear it more often.

Wearing lingerie more often will build your confidence
I don’t know exactly what it is but there is something hot and sexy about wearing lingerie. I think it’s because you can wear whatever you want, no matter how sexy it is, knowing that nobody else is going to know what you are wearing. It’s your own sexy little secret and it helps you see your body in a really attractive light.
It’s a way to honor your body
Many women struggle with body image. In today’s world it is completely understandable. If you are struggling with your body image and you don’t normally wear bikinis at the beach or smaller clothes in general, wearing lingerie is a way to look and feel sexy knowing your body looks amazing underneath your clothes. Additionally, proper fitting lingerie will help accentuate your curves and make your body look stunning.

Unlock your feminine energy and power
Lingerie is extremely feminine. By wearing sexy lingerie you are unlocking your feminine energy and your power. You are unleashing your inner goddess and worshipping your body. Your undergarments are the first layer of clothing that you put on, why not wear something that is going to honor your incredible figure?
Express your creativity
Just like regular clothes are a way to express yourself, lingerie is too. Lingerie comes in many different silhouettes, colors and textures. High end lingerie is extremely good quality and is quite literally a work of art. By shopping for lingerie more often you are exploring another layer of your creativity and slowly turning yourself into a work of art. This is one of the best reasons to wear lingerie in my opinion.
Tips on shopping for lingerie
Lingerie can be expensive sometimes. It is definitely going to become an investment in yourself. Victoria’s Secret is my go-to brand when it comes to lingerie because I am used to their sizing and I am satisfied with the quality. I also have their credit card so I am able to get a lot of discounts and deals.
Victoria’s Secret now carries other brands like For Love and Lemons, which is a popular lingerie brand.
As for shopping with new brands, make sure you read the reviews, check for their return policies as some stores do not accept returns for lingerie. It is also important to know your current body measurements so that you won’t have trouble finding your size.
Don’t be afraid to try something that you normally wouldn’t wear. That is what makes lingerie so fun and exciting. Also make sure you are following the care instructions. Some lingerie has to be hand washed because it is so delicate. It will require a bit more care but it is worth it.
