Sexy and comfy lingerie


Boyshorts have become increasingly popular in recent years. They are very short shorts - like hot pants. They hug your figure and cover up most of your butt. They are extremely comfortable and come in every fabric. Cotton boyshorts are great for lounging around, while the lace version may heat up your bedroom.


A camisole is a normally silk, satin or lace tank top with thin spaghetti straps. You can usually buy matching panties to go with them. Camisoles are oftentimes worn as undershirts but some of them are appropriate for outerwear, if they aren't too revealing.


A chemise is an A-line style gown that falls to upper or mid-thigh. It's flattering for most body types, as it covers your stomach and rear completely. A chemise has spaghetti straps and looks great on most everyone. Fabric styles vary from silk to lace.
