Intimate Clothing – Choosing a Babydoll

The babydoll lingerie style has been around since the 1950s, but the designs have changed quite a bit over the years. When choosing babydolls, there are a few things you should know to get the best look.

What Babydoll is Right for You?
Color may seem like a simple choice, but in the lingerie world there are several aspects to consider. If you are going for a more elegant look, then deep jewel colors will be the best choice. If you are trying to look innocent and flirty pastels will be the solution. For a completely pure look you would want to choose a white babydoll, and if you are looking for a more dominating color then red or black will do. You can mix up the colors to create your own style, such as a white babydoll lined in red fur for a pure yet sultry flare.

In addition to the color choices there are several different fabrics to consider. You will find velvet, silk, sheer, and even printed babydoll fabrics to choose from. The detailing will vary from each design and can even be lined with fur, beads, or feathers for a more seductive look. Be careful when you are purchasing a babydoll that is adorned with too much detail, you want the nighty to accentuate your beauty not hinder it. You can however use the detailing to your advantage to strategically draw the eye to more desirable areas of the body. This method works great for larger women who want to show off the smaller parts and hide the larger.

The skirt is a great way to play with the different styles. There are so many varieties of lengths it makes it easy to find one to fit any body shape or size. If you are trying to show off your long legs try a babydoll that offers a skirt dropping to the middle of the buttocks, if you would like to shorten the leg drop the skirt to about mid thigh. Be careful if you have short legs, the skirt length being too long can make you look stocky and thick.

The woman’s breast size will determine what type bodice is needed. For large breast you will want to find one with added support or under wiring. For smaller breasts, a padded cup will help contour the shape of the breast and enhance the cleavage. The detailing such as darts in the material will create softer lines around the torso to create the most attractive look for your shape.

When you are choosing babydolls just keep in mind that the styles may all be similar, but the designs are quite different so you need to ensure you find the one that compliments your body type.

The babydoll nighty has been around awhile and will continue to be a favorite among women. The simplicity of the design and the ability to draw the eye to the desired areas and distract from others creates a perfect solution for women who want to look and feel sexy.
