Cuddle Up With a Teddy
We know you already know what women’s lingerie is, but we also know that there’s a possibility you aren’t an expert. That’s totally fine. There’s so much to know and learn about shopping for lingerie, that it’s just not possible to know EVERYTHING. However, buying lingerie doesn’t have to be overwhelming. With a little info and a few pointers to keep in mind, you’ll have your salacious selection in no time.
What are Women's Teddies?
For starters, there are many types of lingerie. Chemises, babydolls, bodysuits… it’s possible to get confused. However, most people are familiar with the phrase teddy lingerie, or simply, teddies. A women’s teddy is technically a bodysuit, but more specifically, it’s looser and uses more sheer fabric. It traditionally serves as an undergarment and is a combination of a camisole and panties. Most likely, you understand women’s teddies to be sexy lingerie and we do, too! Whether you are lounging around at home in your burlesque best or zhuzhing it up for the next time you see your partner, we can help you choose a teddy that suits your body, style, and personality!
Shopping teddy lingerie for yourself
There are a few things to consider when buying women's teddies, but the most important thing to remember is that lingerie is about YOU. It doesn’t matter what your partner thinks. If YOU don’t feel sexy and confident, if you aren’t able to move around easily, or if the fabric rubs you the wrong way, then the teddy has lost its power. Think about it like this. If you feel uncomfortable, then your partner will see you shifting and tugging, rather than strutting your sexy sultry stuff. If you are buying women's teddies for yourself, then why even consider something that doesn’t make you feel like a star?
Shopping for your body shape

First, consider what type of women’s teddy would be best for your body shape. The goal is to accentuate your best assets. For example, high-cut teddies will make your legs look longer, while V teddies like the Daring Deep V highlight your probably already awesome cleavage. Been hitting the gym and now you have a sexy back that you want to show off? The Deep V Open Back puts your rear view front and center. If you have body parts you would prefer to keep covered, a sexy satin teddy might be your perfect choice.
Look fit in your fit
There are some other things to think about when picking out women’s teddies. How they will fit matters. You don’t want anything too snug or too loose. One way to figure out the best fit is to get an accurate measure of your bra size. First measure your chest circumference, then your cup size. From there, you should have a pretty good idea of what size teddy you’ll need, but don’t get hung up on what size you think you’re supposed to wear. Your best choice will be the teddy with a fit that makes you feel confident and sexy.
You should also consider the practical side of garment shopping. The construction, complexity, material, and detail are huge factors in how women’s teddies fit. For example, if you are looking for a plus-sized teddy, it may be best to go with one that has a more structured design so you feel supported. Lace teddies like the Floral Lace Plunge are perfect for a stunning peek-a-boo visual. Sexy strappy teddies add a WOW factor, leaving very little to the imagination – in the best of ways. If you really want a bold detail, consider a crotchless teddy. The Rene Rofé Bare It All is mesh, crotchless, backless, high-cut, and comes in three different colors to accentuate any skin tone – and bare it all, it certainly does!

Set the tone
Many people think that a black teddy is the only way to go, but red women's teddies and white women's teddies can be sexy for a themed session with your partner. You may even consider choosing a color that compliments your natural skin tone. For example, if you have an olive skin tone, you would look great with purples and dark blues. If you have reddish undertones, think about green jewel tones. For yellow undertones, go for creams, tans, browns, and royal colors.
Washing and caring for your teddy lingerie
Caring for women’s teddies is a lot easier than you might think. It depends on the fabric, but a general rule of thumb is to hand wash your teddy in soapy water, making sure to let it soak for at least thirty minutes. Rinse thoroughly and gently squeeze out as much excess water as possible, taking care not to stretch the garment. If you’re washing a lace teddy, be as gentle as you can following these steps. Lay your teddy flat to dry.
With a keen eye and a sense of adventure, choosing your new teddy lingerie can be fun… and you can show off your skills in the mirror!
