The Ultimate Guide to Women's Lingerie & Underwear

Welcome to your one-stop shop for all things lingerie and underwear! Whether you're searching for everyday comfort, a touch of sexy lingerie for a special occasion, or simply want to navigate the world of ladies underwear with confidence, Rackhams has you covered. We understand that finding the perfect fit and style can feel overwhelming, so this guide is here to empower you with all the knowledge you need to make informed choices.

Let's break down the most popular lingerie and underwear types:

Lingerie Sets:

These coordinated sets, featuring a bra and matching knickers, offer a streamlined and effortlessly sexy look. Perfect for everyday wear or creating a cohesive outfit under clothing.

Bras:

The foundation of any lingerie wardrobe, bras come in a variety of styles to flatter different body types and offer varying levels of support. Popular options include:

  • Balconette Bra: Offers a plunging neckline and lifts the bust for a cleavage-enhancing effect. Great for fuller busts and outfits with lower necklines.
  • Full Cup Bra: Provides maximum support and coverage, ideal for larger busts or those seeking all-day comfort.
  • Sports Bra: Designed for high-impact activities with supportive encapsulation to minimize bounce.
  • Push-Up Bra: Creates a lifted and fuller bust appearance, perfect for special occasions or cleavage-enhancing outfits.

Knickers:

Also known as briefs or panties, these come in a range of cuts – from high-waisted briefs for full tummy coverage to Brazilian cuts for a cheeky look. Consider your outfit and desired level of comfort when choosing.

Nightwear:

This encompasses sleepwear for ultimate comfort and relaxation. Popular options include:

  • Pyjamas: A classic choice, with separates like shirts and trousers or shorts for a relaxed fit.
  • Nightshirts: Loose-fitting and perfect for warmer weather, offering comfort and breathability.
  • Chemises: A luxurious option, often made from silky fabrics, offering a touch of elegance for bedtime.

Shapewear:

Designed to smooth out curves and create a sleeker silhouette under clothing. Popular options include:

  • Body Shapers: Firming garments that target specific areas like the tummy, thighs, and hips.
  • Waist Cincher: Creates a defined waistline for a more hourglass figure.

Nightdresses:

These one-piece garments offer a comfortable and stylish way to lounge or sleep. Available in a variety of lengths and materials to suit your preference.

Bodysuits & Basques:

Bodysuits are close-fitting garments with a snap closure at the crotch. Basques are similar but often feature boning for a more structured, shaping effect. Both offer a smooth silhouette and can be worn alone or layered under clothing.

Camisoles & Slips:

These layering essentials offer added coverage and a smooth silhouette under clothing. Camisoles are sleeveless and provide light shaping, while slips are full-length garments that offer a smooth line under dresses or skirts.

Suspenders & Garters:

These sexy lingerie pieces hold stockings or tights up, adding a touch of glamour and intrigue. Suspenders attach to stockings at the waist, while garters attach to stockings at the thigh for a more secure hold.

Chemises:

These lightweight garments are similar to slips but often shorter and made from sheer or delicate fabrics. They can be worn as sleepwear or as a layering piece under sheer clothing.

Choosing the Right Lingerie for Your Body:

The key to comfortable and flattering lingerie is finding the right fit! Here are some tips:

  • Measure Yourself: A well-fitting bra is essential for support and comfort. Use a measuring tape to find your band size and cup size for the best fit.
  • Consider Your Body Type: Different styles flatter various figures. Full-figured women might find comfort in full cup bras and high-waisted knickers, while petite women might prefer balconette bras and lower-cut bottoms.
  • Think About Comfort: Choose fabrics that feel soft and breathable against your skin. Cotton is a popular choice for everyday wear, while silk or satin might be more suitable for special occasions.
