The Best Sexy Lingerie For Your Body

What each of us considers sexy is a matter of personal preference. For some, lace-trimmed boyshorts and triangle bralettes offer just the right amount of allure; for others, the art of seduction is best achieved in bustiers and window briefs (look them up). The versatility of lingerie is part of its charm; it can be tailored to your lifestyle, personality, shape, mood, and more.

You may prefer your basic, nude T-shirt bras and bikinis for everyday, but extra-sexy essentials, like suspender belts, halter-necks bra, and bodysuits, await you off the clock. To bring your underwear drawer up to snuff, we broke down 11 common shapes and outlined tips for finding lingerie that feels tailored to yours — pairing apple-like bodies with scintillating one-pieces and carrot figures with flirty chemises, for starters. Many of the items ahead flatter more than one type, so go into the slideshow with an open mind (and lingerie drawer).
