Teddies are a versatile and popular type of lingerie. They can range from the incredibly modest to the scandalously sexy. If you’re a first-time lingerie shopper, the teddy is a great piece with which to start your lingerie collection. But with the wide variety of teddies out there, finding the right one for you can seem daunting. This shopping guide will help navigate you through the sea of sexy teddies so that you can find the perfect one for your wardrobe.

What Is a Teddy?

If you’re new to buying lingerie, you might not be entirely sure what a teddy is or how it differs from other types of lingerie. Essentially, a teddy is the lingerie version of a one-piece swimsuit or bodysuit. They’re typically made from lace or satin, and are fitted to emphasize your gorgeous curves. They can have various other features, including cutouts, sheer materials, or a thong cut, to show more skin and change the overall appearance of the piece. This allows women with a variety of tastes to find teddies that suit their style.

Types of Teddies

As we’ve already mentioned, there is a veritable ocean of options when it comes to teddies. Here’s a quick overview of some of the most common types to help you better understand which type you might be looking for:

  • Teddy sleepwear: Typically, teddies (and any other type of lingerie) are not designed for sleeping. However, if you feel uncomfortable in a traditional teddy, this option tends to be much softer and has a slightly looser fit. This makes them easier to sleep in and makes first-time lingerie wearers feel more comfortable in their lingerie.
  • High-cut teddy: Want to show off your legs a bit more? A high-cut teddy has leg holes that rise to the hips, making your waist look smaller and giving the illusion of longer legs. This is also a good option for women who want to create the illusion of more curves.
  • V teddy: V teddies have deep V-shaped necklines that draw all the focus to your cleavage. The depth of the V can vary, with some reaching down to your waist. This creates a sexy, almost scandalous look and is popular among women who want to highlight their bust.
  • Mesh teddy: These teddies are very popular, as they give the illusion of coverage while giving your partner a jaw-dropping glimpse of the skin beneath.
  • Lace teddy: Lace teddies perfectly blend delicate femininity with bold sexuality. The beautiful lace designs are soft and feminine but sheer enough to give a scandalous glimpse at the body beneath the garment. If you want to feel sweet and delicate while still feeling sexy, lace might be the way to go for you.


Strappy High Rise Teddy

These are just a few of the more popular styles, and of course, each of these styles can have additional features, like garters, cutouts, or a crotchless design. But if you have a basic understanding of the techniques and the terminology, shopping for your first piece of lingerie will be a lot easier.
