Tips for Buying Sexy Lingerie for the First Time

Tips for Buying Sexy Lingerie for the First Time

Hey first-timer, we’re so glad you found us! If you’re wondering about the enchanting world of sexy lingerie, you’ve come to the right place…

Buying lingerie for the first time can be pretty overwhelming – with so many styles, materials, and sizing options to choose from, how are you supposed to know where to start? But don’t panic! With Scarlett’s guide to buying sexy lingerie by your side, you’ll be able to turn your first lingerie-buying experience into something utterly amazing. 

Top Tips for a Successful First-Time Lingerie Shopping Experience

The best place to start is with understanding your motivations for buying sexy lingerie. Are you branching out to be more adventurous, planning a steamy night in, or simply searching for a confidence boost? Figuring out “the why” will help to refine your search and make your first-time lingerie shopping experience a breeze. 

It’s also important to remember that when it comes to wearing sexy lingerie confidence is key, so have a think about your comfort levels and preferences. Do you want something daring and provocative, or do you lean more towards modest and elegant styles? Your lingerie should resonate with your personality and help you to feel your best sexy self. 

The next thing to do is consider your budget. Luxurious lingerie doesn't have to come with a luxurious price tag, but having a budget in mind will help to guide your search so that you can make the most out of your lingerie shopping experience. 

Finally, do your research! Seek out a lingerie boutique or online store that offers exceptional quality and great customer service. Researching your options will lead you to the perfect starting point in your lingerie journey, and from there you can start to explore the tantalising styles and luxurious materials that await…

Choosing Your Lingerie Style

The lingerie you choose is a silent yet powerful statement of self-expression. Let’s explore the styles and materials available so that you can find pieces that really speak to you…


If you're looking to enhance your curves or spotlight an hourglass figure, a body-sculpting corset is perfect for you! Corsets are a timeless choice with a rich history, distinguished by their boning and lace-up qualities. They’re perfect for special occasions or for adding a little intrigue to an outfit… 

Bra and Knicker Sets

Bra and knicker sets are at the heart of every lingerie collection. Crafted with soft fabrics or delicate lace, they typically offer the perfect blend of support and sophistication, and are ideal for both daily wear and intimate moments. Have you just found the perfect way to feel irresistibly sexy?

Suspenders and Stockings

For an extra touch of sex appeal, consider a suspender belt and stockings. This classic combination can elevate your lingerie look to new heights and leave you feeling utterly confident and totally captivating! 

Always remember, lingerie is deeply personal. Go for what makes you feel sexy and let your choice empower you!

Choosing Your Lingerie Material

When it comes to lingerie materials, there's much more to it than simple aesthetics; they also impact the comfort and fit.

Lace, for example, is delicate, intricate, and irresistibly romantic. It adds a touch of timeless femininity and is perfect for those seeking a classic yet seductive look. Silk, on the other hand, is cherished for its natural sheen and smooth texture. It feels incredibly gentle against the skin and is ideal for those who crave both comfort and elegance in their lingerie. Satin is another timeless choice – it feels like a dream against the skin and drapes beautifully over curves. 

The “right fabric” is different for everyone – choose whatever makes you feel confident and sexy! Other popular lingerie materials include Italian mesh, French tulle, embroidery, and even faux fur, so shop around until you find exactly what you’re looking for.

Materials to Avoid When Buying Lingerie 

If you have sensitive skin, we recommend choosing lingerie with high-quality materials and soft, seamless finishes. These options will help you to stay comfortable and irritation-free throughout the day and night – there's no need to sacrifice your well-being for beauty when you can have both! 

Sexy Colours and Provocative Patterns

According to colour psychology, different colours evoke different emotions, so have a think about the emotions you’d like to evoke and let it guide your decision. 

Classic shades like black and red radiate confidence and passion, whereas pastel colours like blush pink or sorbet yellow create an atmosphere of tenderness and intimacy. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, consider bold and vibrant hues like emerald green or electric blue!

Patterns can also add a playful dimension to your lingerie. Polka dots, stripes, and floral prints add whimsy and charm, whereas intricate lace patterns, embroidered designs, and lace-up features can bring more of a sultry edge. Ultimately, opt for whatever speaks to you and makes you feel good.

Understanding Lingerie Sizing

The last thing to wrap your head around when it comes to buying lingerie for the first time is the complicated world of lingerie sizing…

Making sure your lingerie fits properly is essential for your comfort and confidence. Learn how to measure your bust, band, waist, and hips and, when you try on sexy lingerie for the first-time, pay attention to how it feels, not just how it looks. Lingerie should fit snugly but never feel too tight or restrictive. 

You can check out Scarlett’s size and care guide for tips on how to measure yourself. And remember, always check the return policy of the lingerie retailer you’re buying from to ensure you can exchange or return items if they don’t fit perfectly.
The secret to sexy lingerie is how you wear it…

Now, armed with Scarlett’s tips and tricks for buying sexy lingerie for the first time, you’re perfectly prepared to shop styles, materials, colours, patterns, and sizes to find the perfect lingerie set to make you feel amazing.

The adventure starts now, and it's all about you!
