When you think of lingerie, robes probably aren’t the first thing that comes to mind. You think of teddies, corsets, panties with matching bras, and other sexy pieces to wear in the bedroom. But a lingerie wardrobe can be the perfect way to top off any lingerie set you already own, adding a luxurious layer for your partner to remove. Or, you can slip it on with nothing underneath to feel both sexy and comfortable! But how do you find sexy robes that work for you? Here are some tips.
Fabric Comes First
The first thing you should always look at when choosing a lingerie robe is the fabric. The material your robe will impact both the look and the feel of it, so consider it carefully. Most lingerie robes are made of delicate fabrics like satin, lace, and silk.
Satin and silk drape beautifully and have a luxurious sheen to them while providing full coverage. Lace lends any lingerie piece a delicate, feminine touch. It can be added as trim to another fabric, or the entire robe can be fashioned from it. Depending on the type of lace used, this can provide near-total coverage or barely any at all. You can also find sheer fabrics that are less about coverage and more about adding another layer to your bedroom outfit.
Choose a Cut
Most lingerie robes are similar in their cuts. They typically have sleeves that fall between the elbows and wrists and shorter hemlines that come just below the buttocks. The main difference between them in their cuts will be their closures. While all robes will have a tie around the waist, some will also have snaps inside them to hold the robe closed more effectively. It can also affect how the neckline hangs on you, so give it careful consideration.
Many lingerie robes also feature trimming that mimics a lapel or collar. It gives the robe a slightly more refined style. Others have a flattering trim along the neckline, going for a sleeker, more delicate look.
Pick Your Color
Of course, color is important for any addition you make to your wardrobe. When choosing a color for your lingerie robe, there are a few things to keep in mind. First on the list should always be the colors that flatter you most. You probably already have a good idea of what pellets work best with your skin tone and hair color, so look for robes in that range.
You’ll also want to consider whether you want this robe to match a certain lingerie piece that you already own or if you want it to work with any part of your lingerie wardrobe. If you want something more neutral to work with all your pieces, black or white are always great options. Or, treat yourself to a new set of lingerie that matches the robe you buy perfectly!
Find Your Size
Last but not least, make sure you find the right size. If you’re buying a lingerie robe in store, be sure to try it on while wearing only your underclothes. Better yet, wear some lingerie when you go shopping so that you can see exactly how it will look when you step into the bedroom.
If you’re buying online, don’t assume that the size listings will perfectly match your dress size. Always check the sizing guide we provide to ensure that you find the robe you want in your size. This will ensure it drapes beautifully and flatters your figure.
