The Fascinations Guide to Sexy Valentine's Day Lingerie

Lingerie is a Valentine’s Day staple—right up there with flowers, chocolates, and comically large teddy bears. But despite its popularity, finding affordable sexy lingerie for you or your partner can be a bit tricky. Whether you’re planning on going out or spending Valentine’s Day at home this year, has your back with this lingerie buying guide.

At Fascinations, we offer a wide range of apparel sizes. Check out our Queen Size lingerie collection and consult our helpful size charts to ensure you always get the best fit.

Lingerie Styles

The best lingerie for your body is the kind you feel the sexiest in. There are dozens of types of lingerie to choose from, but the most flattering style is almost always the ensemble that makes you feel the most confident. Knowing some of the most common lingerie cuts and styles can also help you make the right choice. 

Panties and Bras

If you’re new to lingerie and a little overwhelmed by the more complicated contraptions, start small with something as simple as a lace pair of panties. From g-strings to thongs to high-waisted crotchless numbers, all you have to do is slip them on—and all your partner has to do is peel them off. Add a lace cut-out bra, sheer mesh bralette, or a strappy halter bra, and voilà! You have a complete sexy bra and panty set.

Babydolls and Chemises

If you prefer a more conservative look or just want to leave a little more to the imagination, babydolls and chemises are an excellent but still sexy lingerie option. Babydolls are also super comfy, with a nice loose fit. Plus, they give off a soft and sensual vibe, perfect for a slow romantic build-up. For something a little more form-fitting that still covers some skin, you can’t go wrong with a curve-hugging chemise.

Hosiery and Bodystockings

If your legs are your best feature, highlight them by opting for hosiery and bodystockings. This might be as simple as a pair of thigh-high see-through argyle socks, or a full-on shoulder-to-toe bodystocking. Adding a garter can also bring a retro feel to the look, along with a more tactile undressing experience for your partner.

Teddies and Rompers

For something you can easily wear underneath your going out clothes, teddies and rompers can be a subtle and sexy layering option. You can even pair a bodysuit with a skirt or pair of jeans for a tempting out-on-the-town look. Your date won’t be able to get you home fast enough.

Corsets and Bustiers

Body-hugging corsets and bustiers are a great way to enhance your curves in all the right places. This style of lingerie also has a more retro, vintage feel. The corset works by holding your waist tight, also giving you a slimmer, smoother silhouette. Meanwhile, a bustier can gently lift your breasts for enhanced cleavage and give you the perfect waistline. 

Fetish and Kink

Pastel babydolls are cute, but they don’t fit everyone's aesthetic. Don’t be afraid to try something a little more daring when shopping for sexy lingerie. Whether you’re deeply involved in the BDSM community or just kink-curious, you might be surprised at how much you like wearing fetish apparel. Or you can indulge your fantasies by donning a bedroom costume. From sexy student-teacher roleplay to good cop bad cop outfits, there’s something for everyone.

Sexy Underwear for Men

Almost all lingerie is made with women in mind. But what about when you want to see your man in something skimpy? Pouch-style underwear can be a great way to emphasize and enhance your package. From the classic kiss-me boxers to a barely-there animal print thong, sexy men’s underwear should also be on your radar.

Lingerie comes in a variety of different fabric types. Knowing what each fabric will feel like can help you with choosing the right size and ensure that you stay comfy for as long as you’re wearing it. 

Lingerie Fabrics

Lace is one of the most ubiquitous materials when it comes to traditional sexy lingerie. This delicate, weblike fabric is great for showing off your assets due to its sheerness. It is often made from linen, silk, cotton, or synthetic fibers. Most lace has medium give, high breathability, and is not prone to pilling (so long as you stick to hand washing in cold water). Some people with sensitive skin may find all-lace fabric to be itchy, so look for blends if you are prone to skin problems.


Spandex is a synthetic fiber that provides a ton of elasticity. It’s also super lightweight, so while it will cling to your body, you’re not going to feel too weighed down or cinched in. 


Nylon is a type of synthetic polymer fabric that is super stretchy, with a lot of give. While it’s less breathable than lace, it’s also better at moisture-wicking if you live in a more humid environment. It’s often combined with other organic and synthetic fabrics for an all-around comfy feel. 


Polyester can be a natural, synthetic, or blended fabric. This versatile textile is super durable, wrinkle and shrink-resistant, lightweight, and retains its shape very well. It’s also stain-resistant and silky to the touch, making it a popular material for lingerie that will hold up over time.

Lingerie Colors

Lingerie comes in about every color you can imagine. The color and style you choose can set the tone of your encounter, from innocent bridal white to sweet pastels to devious deep reds and blacks. Here are some things to keep in mind as you choose a lingerie color.

First things first, if you have a color in mind that you or your partner love you in, go for it. What really brings a sexy piece of lingerie to life is the confidence and sensuality you bring to it, so if neon orange or polka dots is what puts you in the mood—by all means, go for it.

Another factor you might consider is your skin tone. If your skin is warm-toned, warmer colors may be complementary (think honey, burnt orange, violet-red, or olive). Those with cooler skin tones can often easily pull off colors like blue, lavender, or rose. Of course, it also depends on how bold you want to be. A high-contrast outfit might be just what you want to make a lasting impression.

Lingerie Accessories

Lacy bra and thong? Check. Garter and thigh-highs? Check. But if you’re all about the details, you might feel like something is still missing. You can glam up your look by investing in some lingerie accessories, like a statement necklace, stick-on body jewels, some sexy heels, or a set of colorful pasties.
