Four New Ways to Wear Lingerie

When you think of wearing lingerie, you most likely see yourself in the bedroom, right? Contrary to popular belief, lingerie isn’t just apparel that was designed to be taken off. More women are wearing glamorous lingerie pieces in public as part of their everyday outfits.

That’s right: lingerie can be subtly incorporated into your ensemble, giving your ordinary clothes a sexy flair as well as giving you an opportunity to enjoy your favorite pieces more often. Here are four new ways to wear lingerie outside of the bedroom.

A corset can give a fierce edge to an otherwise simple ensemble. Lace one up with a pair of straight-cut or flared jeans to balance out the fitted look, and layer with a cardigan or blazer. When styled like this, the corset looks more like a tube top or fitted blouse, but still gives you the benefit of a defined, curvy silhouette. Wear a simple corset for a subtle look, or rock an embellished one as a statement piece. Whichever way you choose, everyone will love the bold twist to your casual ensemble.

Bodysuits are another great way to incorporate lingerie into your outfits and are quickly becoming a very popular item. They’re often sold as closet staples rather than bedroom attire, but can serve as a sexy alternative to a basic top. Bodysuits work well for a clean, “tucked” appearance when worn with a skater skirt or fitted pants. If your bodysuit is sheer, layer a bandeau underneath for coverage. You can wear it casually or dress it up for a night on the town. The array of styles are endless and work for almost any occasion!

Lacy Chemise

Even the laciest of chemises or babydolls can be worn out and about. Layer a plain solid camisole underneath to transform your piece into a charming feminine blouse. While most chemises may be too short to wear as a dress, you can pair one with jeans on a casual day or dress up the look by adding slacks and blazer for the office. A spaghetti-strap chemise can be worn over a plain scoop neck t-shirt for more modest coverage.

Bralettes are one of the hottest items in fashion today. They can easily serve as a stylish crop top or an underlay for an oversized tank. Have you seen how many people wear them at the most popular music festivals? They look great with high-waisted shorts or skirts, or paired with a kimono for a tad more coverage. Bralettes are the perfect item to cool down in on a hot summer day too!


Incorporating your lingerie as part of everyday outfits will allow you show off your luxurious favorites and create a good shift in direction from your typical style habits. Infusing lingerie in your look also adds a hint of sex appeal, as subtle or as bold as you want it to be. Many women say that lingerie gives them added confidence in the bedroom—why not enjoy that benefit in your daily life too? Whether you’re on a date, at the office, or out with the girls, your lingerie doesn’t have to be kept hidden. Now experiment, style, and shop! The world is your runway!
