Available in utmost comfortable fabrics such as cotton and satin, a camisole or top is perfect for hot summer nights and sleepovers. Pair it with a pair of soft cotton shorts or pajamas for a good night’s sleep. You can also pair your cami with a thong or your underwear bottoms if you’d like to show a little more skin.

3. BabyDoll Chemise

4. Thongs

ThongsFrom eliminating panty lines to acting as the perfect accessory on sexy nights – thongs are a must-have piece of lingerie in your wardrobe. It only has a small strip of fabric in the back, revealing the maximum of your backside. You can wear your thongs under tight-fitted outfits when stepping out or wear them with your camisoles, teddies, and corsets when staying in.

5. Matching Sets

Matching SetsA matching set as the name suggests involves a matching bra and panty of the same print or color. Whether you wear matching sets on a special occasion or for regular wear, it is bound to make you feel special. Plus, you can always wear these as standalone too. Matching sets suit all body types as they focus on the body as a whole and not a singular feature. However, it’s important to find a bra and panty that fit you well and flatter your body type.
