Wearing sexy lingerie can boost your confidence and empower you

P.S Wearing lingerie isn't just for your partner

Being in a long-term relationship can cause intimacy to burn out. Creating space for a sexy evening can be a good way to turn up the heat. It could be an out of the ordinary date, reading poetry, taking a bath, or even wearing sexy lingerie. Lingerie can be pleasurable for both partners because not only does it look good, but it can make you feel good too. But why should those who are single miss out on all the fun?

If you’ve always wanted to try wearing a little lace, you don’t need to wait until you have a partner to please. Not only can it be a confidence booster but it can be a way to encourage a little self-love. If you’re feeling nervous or are overwhelmed by the choices, you could start with something simple like some nice underwear or a pretty bra.

Lingerie can help you reclaim your sexuality. Masturbation is frequently discussed when to comes to cis males.  There seems to be this fog of shame and secretiveness that hangs over the world of female and nonbinary masturbation. You can blame that one on our patriarchal society’s intense focus on pleasing men and their desires. Enjoying your own sexuality is healthy and normal. Sexuality doesn’t always have to revolve around pleasing people during the act of sex. Lingerie can be an excellent way to titillate and excite in more ways than one.

Just wearing lacy duds under your regular clothing can be a novelty. Imagine heading off to work just wearing a t-shirt and jeans or office clothing, all the while wearing underwear that makes you look very sexy without anyone knowing. It’s almost like an inner confidence booster that’s your own little secret.

Lingerie can boost people’s self-esteem through boudoir photo shoots, a growing trend that involves being photographed in underwear. It’s a great way to try something new, make you feel beautiful and just have fun. There are many photographers that specialize in boudoir that offer a safe and comfortable environment. If you don’t view yourself as a model or don’t like being photographed, it can still be an enjoyable experience.

Photographers will often offer guidance and will work with you to find the most flattering images. If you want to get a little risque, you can do that, but if you just want some mildly sexy poses, you can also do that too. Yes, you’re putting yourself out there but it can be an intimate experience that helps you love your body more. It can also be a surprising and very romantic gift to share with your boo. Do your research and find out what works best for you.

If you’re not feeling a professional photo shoot, grab a camera and a friend or set up a self-timer and have your own!

Lingerie is about having fun so make sure you’re happy, comfortable, and feel good. Try something new on and see how it makes you feel. You might be surprised by how much you like it.
