When you feel like you could use a little confidence boost, the best way to cheer yourself up is to dress yourself down. That’s right, baby, we’re talking underwear. Undergarments of any variety are a great way to help you feel like your best, sexiest self. Whether you’re single and ready to mingle or have a boo of your own, here are five gender-neutral lingerie looks to celebrate your amazing bod.
1. Sexy Dungeon Dom
Regardless of what you’re wearing, being a Dom is a state of mind. And if you want to dip into that headspace, try dressing the part! You can tap into your kinkier side by wearing blacks and reds, leather and latex, spiked and chains, and all things buckles.
Accessing your inner Dom can be a super sexy way to incorporate some power play between the sheets. Maybe you opt for a leather collar or harness, or complete your look with some accessories like paddles and whips. Everyone looks hot when they’re feeling themselves, and being a Dom is ALL about that.
2. Angel/Devil Vibes
Sometimes it feels good to get a little bad. Playing with the angel and devil narrative can be a super sexy way to spice it up between the sheets. Tapping into your inner angel may set you up for screaming “oh my GOD” as you reach the big O later in the night. To really nail a hot angel look, try to find an all-white outfit. Though you don’t have to wear a set of wings or a little halo, adding some props can really send it over the edge. Angel means flowing, sheer, and breathable. Try to find capes or looser-fitting garments.
Or perhaps, you’re a fallen angel, with touches of black and leather. Being creative with your storyline can help you find the perfect look. As for the devil, wearing tighter red things will really set the message. You can reach for horns or pretend that your paddle is a pitchfork.
3. “Just Had Sex” Shirt Switch
This trope, where a character wears their partner’s dress shirt or any of their clothing, was a sneaky way to signify two tv characters had sex (or are going to) while omitting the scene–gotta keep it PG for daytime television! For a classic look that stands the test of time, grab an oversized button-up shirt and simply wear it over your favorite pair of underwear. The “Risky Business” look is a super sexy way to incorporate business and pleasure.
You can easily turn this look into a sexy teacher, a hot CEO, or any other work/school fantasy. The shirt and underwear combo is great for doing a little sexy striptease dance and can be perfect for teasing your lover with a little peep show on a hot summer night.
4. Sexy School Uniform
Is your school uniform still in the back of your closet? And does it fit a younger you? This can be the perfect fit to be a sexy student! If your skirt would have you sent to the principal’s office in the past, not to worry, there will be a better punishment in store. This sexy lingerie outfit is all about creating the expectation of what’s underneath. Lose a few buttons to expose sexy undies or give a hot peek of your chest, and maybe add some lingerie stockings, too. It totally complements the dress shirt vibe if you go for a sexy student and your partner is the hot teacher offering extra credit.
5. Classic and Comfy
Let’s be real: often we feel the most confident in the comfiest garb. Feel yourself with sleek cotton undies, or breezy briefs that hug your hips the right way. You can never go wrong with new underwear, bonus points if you get a matching set!
