Picking the Perfect Lingerie for Your Valentine's Date
on 23 Jan 2018
What you wear depends entirely on what your plans are for the rest of the day or night – you might not want to be squeezing yourself into a steel-boned corset before going out for a three-course meal!
So, to help you avoid wriggling whilst you sit through a play in a crotchless G-string, or hoiking up your stockings during an extended shopping trip, we've got some top tips for the best lingerie to wear, whatever your date situation.
(Unless you're going white water rafting or something. In which case, a change of outfit later in the game might be in order…)
Just keep reading to see our top lingerie tips, whatever your plans this February 14th.
Date Scenario 1: Dinner and a Movie
If you know that you're going for a slap-up meal before your alone time later on, then the key thing here is to make sure that the lingerie you choose is not too restrictive.
Two-piece styles (such as a sexy bra and knicker set) are a perfect choice as they don't cover your tummy, and can be worn under pretty much any clothing without detection. Alternatively, soft, stretchy chemises work like shapewear if you'd prefer a little more coverage.
The fact that you'll be sitting for a long time means that these are also the perfect dates on which to wear stockings, as you won't have to worry about schlepping for miles from bar to bar with them wrinkling or falling down. Not so sexy.
Lovehoney Treasure Me Purple Push-Up Bra Set ([[productprice:productid=40921]])
Perfect to wear under dresses and tops, this satin and lace set features moulded cups for a smooth silhouette, a longline shape and adjustable hook-and-eyes for a comfy fit. Wear with the matching suspender thong, and reveal all at the end of your date.
Lovehoney Seduce Me Push-Up Chemise Set ([[productprice:productid=37236]])
Sleek, comfy, and supremely sexy, this gorgeous chemise isn’t fitted with any bones or underwires so it’s comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time. The soft microfibre smooths over your tummy for a flattering shape (no matter how big your meal).
Lovehoney Heart Patterned Nude Stockings ([[productprice:productid=38937]])
The perfect finishing touch for a fun and flirty date night look, these stockings feature a pretty heart pattern, leading the object of your affection's eye irresistibly upwards. Pair with a sexy scarlet suspender belt and heels.
Date Scenario 2: Netflix and Chill
If your Valentine’s plans are home-based, then the world is your lace-trimmed oyster. A comfortable, familiar environment means that you and your partner may feel comfortable enough to experiment with something a little different, like a spot of role play, bondage, or even a sexy striptease.

Date Scenario 3: Dirty Weekend
If you and your SO are planning on a long weekend break somewhere to celebrate Valentine's Day, then it may be time to get a little luxurious. After all, a special occasion deserves a special outfit!
Look for lingerie that can double up as sleepwear to cut down on packing, such as babydolls, chemises, and robes. Plus, if you wake up in sexy lingerie, then your morning session will be off to a fantastic start from the minute they open their eyes.
Lovehoney Barely There Wine Sheer Crotchless Teddy ([[productprice:productid=40698]])

Lovehoney Flaunt Me Floral Lace Robe ([[productprice:productid=34436]])
No sexy lingerie collection would be complete without a lacy robe, and this beautifully sheer number is ideal for popping into your hand luggage. Wear it over a revealing bra set, or just on its own to tantalisingly mask your bare body.
Date Scenario 4: (Nearly) First Date
If you're in a new relationship, it can sometimes be tricky to know when to whip out the killer lingerie. Some people aren't happy dressing up until they've been together years, whereas others crack out the catsuits on date 2 or 3.
So that you're both comfortable, make sure you go for something cute and stylish that's not too intimidating, or too dissimilar to what you would normally wear.
Lovehoney Parisienne Wine Plunge Longline Bra and Thong Set ([[productprice:productid=39340]])
Classic definitely doesn't have to mean dull, as this sexy little set proves. With a wine-coloured deep plunge bra and flirty, flattering shorts, it's everything you need for a passionately playful Valentine's.
Lovehoney Unwrap Me Red Lace Babydoll ([[productprice:productid=34026]])
A racy red number that shouts sex appeal from the rooftops, the Unwrap Me babydoll features sheer lace cups, a floaty flyaway skirt and halterneck ties to give your boobs a boost. What's not to love?
Lovehoney Seduce Me Red Push-Up Basque Set ([[productprice:productid=37234]])
Keep it sultry but sweet with this basque. Striking, slimming and seductive, the boned shape hugs your waist and emphasises your cleavage for pure feminine definition, while the ruffled hem adds a flirty touch.
Date Scenario 5: 500th Date
If you've been with your partner for some time, it can be difficult to know where to go next with your lingerie choices. Chances are, you've tried the old satin and lace classics at some point before, but now you want to give something else a go.
Try looking for new takes on classic styles, such as different materials or cuts that you haven't opted for before. Does your partner love you in a sexy bra and knicker set? Try a quarter or open cup bra instead. Sick of babydolls? Look for figure-hugging mini dresses.
The good thing about being in a long-term relationship is that you have the freedom and confidence to try something out without fear. So go for it!
