Are You Making Lingerie Mistakes?

Satinboutique is mainly an online lingerie store, particularly focussing on sexy styles.  We also stock adult toys, bath and body products and sleepwear (as well as dress-up too!) but lingerie is our main offering.  The thing is, when you buy sexy lingerie, you don’t want to make a mistake.  Of course, bras need to fit well, buy the wrong size and you’ll never make the most of your assets!  However, there are other common sexy lingerie errors that you could be making.  Let’s look at the do’s and don’ts so next time you shop with us, you buy the right lingerie and look as gorgeous as you should!

  • You’re Wearing the Wrong Size

OK, be honest with yourself.  Are you really a size 10?  Wearing the wrong size can seriously cause discomfort and you could end up with a visible panty line (VPL) or a muffin top!  When your tummy spills over your panties.  A size too small can also cause urinary infections or yeast infections to wear the right size!  As well as looking better in clothes, it’s healthier too.

  • You’re Wearing the Wrong Item

Thongs are great, in tight-fitting clothing such as leggings, jeggings or skinny jeans but with a dress, you might be better with a more structured undergarment.  A seamless body-short won’t show through or a pair of tight-fitting shorts that hold you in and give your body a better line.  We like the Elegant Moment Shorts, available in black, white, red and pastels – something for every outfit!  Shop yours here:  You could also try a high waisted brief if you want to smooth out your tummy area, wear a low bikini shape pantie with a pair of trousers or a skirt instead.

  • You’re Not Hand-Washing

Read and pay attention to the care instructions of your lingerie.  Delicate lingerie made out of satin, lace or silk needs to be hand-washed because their construction is far more intricate.  Use mild detergents too, if you look after your underwear it will last longer.  No one wants saggy, baggy and gray looking bras and panties!

  • Start Afresh

Don’t ignore those long past their sell-by-date items in your dresser.  While it might be tempting to hold on to comfortable items, if they’re old the chances are they won’t fit you well so clear out and go shopping on for new undies that you can’t wait to wear!

  • Don’t be a Cheapskate

You might think money is better spent on your clothes but actually you’d be wrong.  A nice set of lingerie can enhance your clothes, how they fit and also how you feel. If you know you’re wearing something beautiful, you feel confidence – there’s nothing that can beat it!  Remember, good underwear is the foundation of your outfit, it can make all the difference.  Cheap, low-quality underwear can ruin a good outfit, the fabrics can feel rough and uncomfortable too and your underwear just won’t last unless it’s good quality.  Get yourself something really gorgeous.  We like this Elegant Moments Underwire Bra Set in white lace:

  • Don’t Mix Lights with Darks

Match your underwear to your clothing.  So, don’t wear a white bra under a black top, it will be seen.  You could wear a red or flesh color instead.  You might think it can’t be seen but with numerous Instagram photo-opportunities, you can guarantee that flash will show up more than you bargained for!  Stick with whites for light clothing and darks for dark clothing – then, you won’t make a mistake.  Try our Escante Lace Demi Bra in black, it’s sensual and perfect for under a tight-fitting dark top or blouse:
