Finding The Honey In Honeymoon Lingerie
Imagine the scene: Your bedroom is illuminated with the smoldering glow of a hundred scented candles, you have soft music playing in the background, the champagne is chilling, and you've covered the bed in rose petals and teensy-weensy heart shaped chocolates (OK, cut the chocolates, they may get messy
unless you eat them first!)
Feeling luxuriously languid in your silk negligee, you lounge against the bedroom door, caressing the door jamb like it's a small fluffy puppy. A gentle intake of breath... Yes, you've attracted his attention and he turns slowly to eye you from top to toe. "Could you turn the music down, love? I can't hear the game."
Now if this was your honeymoon, I'd be checking out the pre-nup by now. But thankfully (or hopefully, whichever is the case) this scenario may well be what you'll come to expect down the track if you don't keep your own on the ball (so to speak!)
Because unfortunately gals, unless you are one of the infinitesimal number of lucky women who finds herself with a really-truly romantic kinda guy, it's up to us to keep the spice in the hot pot we call romance. And certainly the time to put those ingredients on to boil is during your honeymoon.
Whoever said "If love is blind, then why is lingerie so popular?" certainly knew what he (or she) was talking about. Your honeymoon is that strange hiatus between the fairytale of your wedding day and the soap-opera that will become real married life. It's a time to get to know each other - intimately.
And that, my friends, is why honeymoon lingerie is one of the most successful and popular items currently bought on the Internet. And I said "bought', not "ogled at"!
Young women in their droves are searching online honeymoon lingerie sites looking for that one special item (or maybe more if your heart and wallet desires) that may get your man to take his hands off the remote control and on to you.
The secret to buying the perfect honeymoon lingerie is to compromise (and isn't that what marriage is all about?) between what makes you feel fabulous, flirty, sexy and ready for anything and what your man loves to see you in - besides nothing at all! There's simply not much point in organza and French Chantilly lace if you rock your new hubby's socks when you are wearing his Y-fronts with his 20-year-old Rangers T-shirt. A suitable compromise might be a perky DKNY cotton cami and boy-leg shorts set.
Similarly, you don't want to permanently damage the delicate psyche of your romantic-at-heart if you appear on Day 2 of your honeymoon in your pilled and tattered trakky. He's going to wonder if he married his Juliet or a grunge-band junkie. Honeymoon lingerie has come out of the closet (so to speak!) and gone uptown in an array of colors and styles that would suit even the most coy of new brides. If the whole white lacy suspender-and-stockings-number makes you want to run to the nearest divorce lawyer, you'll be thrilled with the latest range of honeymoon lingerie available online. "New brides are becoming color conscious - purchasing lingerie in a rainbow of colors is the trend. We are seeing honeymooners purchase sexy, classic and gorgeous lingerie for their "big day" and "afterwards", not restricting themselves to the traditional white or black any more," says Jeanine Brown from the funky and fashionable online lingerie store www.cheekyedge.com." Aqua and red were the most popular colors this past season and pale greens, lilacs and soft baby pinks are currently popular."
So, there you have it. From sexy, sporty cropped tops and boy-leg shorts, to the glamour of a silk peignoir; from cheeky, flirty baby-dolls to the sultry seductiveness of black teddies, honeymoon lingerie offers you so many choices, it would take a strong woman to stop at one. But then you did choose just one marriage partner, so now all you have to tackle is that remote. . .

Your wedding day is one you won't forget. Similarly, you want your wedding night to be equally memorable. Wedding lingerie can go a long way toward making both of these things happen. It is just as important to your wedding as your dress, your makeup, or the flowers. Your wedding lingerie marks the beginning of your intimate life with your husband. It is also the foundation for your dress and your overall look.
More now than ever, wedding dresses are designed to be sensual and revealing, albeit in a classy manner that reflects the mood of the day. Wedding lingerie should be selected as a reflection of this look. If your dress fits tight to your body, the proper wedding lingerie can prevent the showing of lines and creases.
A white thong, for instance is an item that is sexy, comfortable, and can hide from your guests so that your dress wears as it was designed. Your bra is another important part of wedding lingerie. You want supportive a supportive bra under your dress, and you don't want it to show over the top or out the sides of your dress. Strapless bras, again, are a form of wedding lingerie that can be sexy for the night, but reflect your dress in a perfect line during the ceremony and reception. The important thing is balance. Find wedding lingerie that will be functional for the wedding, comfortable for the reception, and still translate into a sexy mood in the honeymoon suite with your new groom. Some brides find that the best wedding lingerie to hit on all three characteristics is the one piece body shaper or corset. It certainly assures no panty lines, is flattering for the torso, comfortable (if fit properly), and most men find them sexy.
In terms of practicality, another very important piece of wedding lingerie is your slip. What style of slip will be needed is dependent on your dress, so obviously you will need to choose that first. When selecting any wedding lingerie be sure to have pictures of your dress with you for reference. For instance, a very full skirt, bouffant style, will need extra lift to keep the weight of the dress form pulling down on the fabrics. In this case, the proper wedding lingerie in terms of the slip is a crinoline slip with many layers. For an A-line type wedding dress, crinoline with only one or two layers is your best bet. No matter what, you need to select your slip based on practicality. This is wedding lingerie that will set the foundation for your wedding dress and your look.
Traditionally, the most important piece of wedding lingerie will be your garter. Since it will be given away, it is the one piece you won't likely want to spend too much to get. Find a fun novelty store that carries lingerie to get your garter without spending too much on it. Since everyone at the reception will see it, cut loose. That is a time to use your wedding lingerie for fun outside the bedroom. Find a fun color, a silly style, or something to moderately embarrass your groom in front of the family.
Wedding lingerie is as important as a wedding dress. It is the foundation for your dress and will help it look its best. It is also the foundation for your first night as a married woman. Your wedding lingerie should be silent and hidden during the ceremony, but be able to speak loudly to your new groom on you wedding night.
