Pretty lingerie is often mentioned in tandem with Valentine's Day or date night, but we believe you don't need an excuse to treat yourself to something sexy. (But if do you spot something here for V-Day? Don't resist.) If you feel like picking that $200 two-piece silk satin lace set for yourself, do it. No judgment. Putting on some sexy lingerie and pouring yourself a glass of red wine is the perfect way to destress from a long workday and indulge in some self-care come Feb. 14. Since we're all about just that, we found the best lingerie pieces on the market right now.
The idea of lingerie might immediately conjure up leather, lace, and ruffles. If you want to opt for something completely different, here's a velvet jacquard set. The bralette and high-waisted briefs are both still wearable silhouettes but come in a cool textured abstract giraffe print to appeal to your sense of touch.
What's the secret sauce to being Rihanna? It starts with dressing like her. This lips motif bra from her Savage x Fenty line is flirty and sweet. (Get the matching ribbon tie underwear too for a complete set.) The best part? You can rock these pieces under winter sweaters and jeans long after the Valentine's Day chocolates have cleared the shelves.
This faux leather and floral lace teddy shows you're in charge for the night. It's just the right piece to add some drama to the bedroom and take you and your partner's connection to the next level.
This polka dot bustier comes with a matching cheeky underwear for a full feminine feel. This sweet and sexy set is for the lady who is testing the lingerie waters to see what she likes and doesn't like. Personally, I love.
For a piece you can wear just for yourself on Feb. 14 and beyond, slip into this lightweight, non-stretch charmeuse romper. The one-piece is not as "linger-y" as some of the other options on here, which is great because you're looking for something comfy that can work for a regular weeknight.
This is called the "naked breast bra," and it lives up to its name. The piece features an attached lace choker and floral straps, which add a bit of delicateness to an otherwise intimidating-looking bra. Wear with 100 percent confidence. I believe in you.
You're looking for a truly unique piece to surprise bae with on V-Day. This rust pink silk bra from Loveday London is one of a kind because of the cutout details and leather trim. It'll add that extra something-something to your lingerie drawer.
You'll need something to cover up your lingerie with, and this silk robe allows you to lounge in style without exposing too much skin. Wear it over any of the sets mentioned here or go commando underneath to feel a complete sense of freedom.
Your college sweatshirts and sorority tees are fine to sleep in, but if you're looking to step up your lingerie game, you'll need this nightie. It's like a slip dress meets a sheer bralette. The piece is breezy, not constricting, and allows you to show off your favorite pair of panties.
No lingerie collection is complete without a bodysuit, and this one happens to work for night (when layered under a blazer). The lace style comes in two different colors and despite the bodysuit's thin design, it'll hold up even with rough play.
If you like to hang out in your bra and underwear, kick it up a notch with this silk blend charmeuse top and matching pajama shorts set. It has no underwires or hardware that dig into your skin and comes with slim, adjustable straps for maximum comfort. I will gladly spend Friday night indoors just to lounge in this two piece.
When it's all over, shrug off your wedding gown and straight into this silky lace number. The lace highlights the chest and sides for a sweet and sexy look. Finish setting the mood with some champagne and strawberries.
This bondage bra leaves little to the imagination. The bands are made of smooth silk for a comfortable fit and a front clasp closure makes this piece easy to put on...or take off.
You can be comfortable, covered, but still sexy in this gorgeous pale pink set. The camisole can be worn with the matching shorts or paired with jeans and a blazer for a daytime outfit. It's made from a silk-blend satin, so it drapes languidly over your frame in an effortless sort of way.
Brides who want to set the mood will love this alluring and romantic lace chemise. The partially sheer body is strategically covered with florals while thin spaghetti straps give a delicate and sweet vibe to the overall piece.
Pamper yourself on a weeknight by slipping on this luxuriously silky Chantilly lace nightgown. Other things you'll need to complete your self-care ritual: a face mask, some tea, and a good book.
