Sweet Valentine alternatives

From SheKnows Australia
Get cosy with the one you love on Valentine's Day in these cute little lingerie numbers. These pieces are comfortable enough to wear any day of the week.

With Feb. 14 coming up, many ladies might be looking for lingerie to spice up the night.

Forget about silly costumes or feeling ridiculous, look for something classy that makes you comfortable and confident for a titillating Valentine's Day.

The saucy slip

Lingerie isn't all about barely-there strips of fabric. Instead, think about a slinky night dress that glides on (and off) your body, while also keeping your mind free of bad body conscious thoughts.

Silk or satin slips come in a variety of colours and patterns, and are often embellished with splits, lace, tiny bows or dainty diamantes.

This playful slip from Cotton On Body has cute little ruffles over the bust and comes in pink and black — letting you pick between sweet or naughty.

Burlesque baby

If you're up for a playful night then consider getting your sensual groove on with burlesque-style lingerie. This sensual trend focuses on female prowess and is all about classy garments that show off your curves. Think cheeky boy shorts, fishnet stockings, corsets and, of course, feather boas.

Online store, Heaven Costumes, can help you with every burlesque trick from really naughty to really nice (like this saucy corset).

Nothing underneath

Get your wicked side out on Valentine's night and tease your lover. If the thought of scratchy, pokey underwear really makes you want to take it off quicker than he does, maybe a kimono or silky robe is the perfect thing. With your bare legs stepping out and nothing underneath, the temptation will drive him wild.

La Senza has a few beautiful kimonos, including this cherry red one, which also comes in a daring leopard print.

Taut and terrific

If you're thinking of going a little different on the day of love, why not try a fitted lace teddy bodysuit? While it's not to everyone's taste, a teddy is actually a flattering choice for every body as it pulls your tummy in, cinches your waist and pushes your bust out. Bodysuits are definitely the choice of the day, in fact it may make you feel as sassy as Beyonce and Ke$ha who've donned many for their concerts and music clips.

Bras N Things has the ultra "kool" Kardashian lingerie range in stock, including this lacy "Electra" teddy.

Love note

Remember no matter what you wear, the sexiest thing going is your mind and confidence. So, slip into your chosen lingerie but ramp up your ego and drive him wild.
