One enchanted evening, you may discover that lingerie, or intimate apparel, isn’t just for you, but is also for the one you love. What do you think of when you think of lingerie? Do the words sexy, skimpy, and revealing come to mind? Perhaps the words romantic, classy, or chic are the words that you think of first when you think of intimate apparel.
Purchasing lingerie for your sweetheart is a practice well rooted in society. The gift of lingerie or intimate apparel is a special one that clearly states how we feel about our loved one. We create memories that come to life each time we wear one of our special lingerie ensembles. We revitalize the sparks that ignite anew the love we feel for our partner.
Lingerie, the gift of romance or passion, is a gift that says so many things. Taking the time to select a gift of lingerie for the one you love shows how much an individual cares and appreciates someone. If you are purchasing intimate apparel for someone, make sure that you select something carefully. Take the time to consider size, color, and style.
Fashion trends, as with any garment, influence exactly what is available and popular in intimate apparel. Once an extremely necessary item in a woman’s lingerie drawer, the classic teddy has been replaced with two-piece ensembles that flaunt just enough tummy skin to be tempting and provocative. Once a staple garment of models, the thong, designed to avoid panty lines, has earned a place in the forefront of lingerie must haves. Intimate apparel has taken on a whole new existence of its own.
Although holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries are the popular times to purchase intimate apparel, any time is a good time. Lingerie comes in so many styles, colors, sizes, and patterns that it lends itself to year round gift giving. Expensive gifts of intimate apparel are sure to be appreciated.
Holidays, however, are often the easiest time to make a decision on what to buy. Stores and on-line sites offer a special themed selection that limits the choices, but not the quality. Gift giving and selecting becomes a cinch.
Valentine’s Day brings to mind images of large red hearts, gorgeous red roses, and sentimental cards decorated with Cupids and hearts. However, the popular trend is to purchase sweet and delicate lingerie for the one you love. That means soft, pink, and pretty.
Springtime holidays, such as Easter or May Day, suggest delicate pastels and soft, airy fabrics, such as silk or chiffon. Large floral prints give a splash of color without too much busyness. White, as always, remains a classic and offers a sense of innocent beauty.
Winter holidays suggest warm colors like burgundy, plum, forest green, or black. Warmer fabrics are also more popular at this time of year, including, velour and velvet.
Sometimes less is more, whether you are thinking less skin and more imagination or less imagination and more skin. Whatever style it is that you decide to purchase, a beautiful piece of lingerie is almost always appreciated as a gift. Popular styles and colors are constantly changing, but the gift of intimate apparel is a constant.
