Finding the Best Lingerie for Your Body Type

Finding the Best Lingerie for Your Body Type

Women come in a variety of shapes and sizes, making each woman unique in her own way. Many body shapes for women fall into one of five key categories: apple, rectangle, triangle, inverted triangle, and the hourglass figure. 

These categories simply refer to the different proportions of a woman’s shoulders, waist, and hips. Weight is never a factor.

With so many categories, it can be difficult to find the best lingerie for your shape. When we wear lingerie, we want to feel sexy, confident, and powerful in our own skin. So, today we will discover how to find the best lingerie for our body type.

Hourglass Body Type

If you have an hourglass body type or a “36-24-36” figure, you just want to emphasize what you already have. Your shoulders and hips are the same width, and you have a slender waistline. We recommend garter belts, teddies, and corsets as the best lingerie for this particular body type. 

While a garter belt looks incredibly complicated, it really isn’t. Every woman should try one on at least once in their life. They can be worn under skirts and dresses and is a great starter piece for anyone dipping their toes in the world of lingerie for the first time.

Triangle Body Type

With this body type, your hips are slightly bigger and are wider than your shoulders. So, you want to make sure that you make your body looks balanced and more proportionate. Lace is always a winner on this body type, and a bustier can be used to draw more attention to the chest area. Matching bra and panty sets are also good at leveling out your shoulders and hips.

Lace is comfortable and sexy at the same time. It is also incredibly sheer and can provide a bit of mystery when worn, which makes it even more exciting.

Rectangle Body Type

This is described as more of an athletic figure with minimal curves. For this reason, you want something that cinches the waist. A corset is perfect for this body type. Longer torsos can also mesh well with a garter belt and push up bra. 

Inverted Triangle Body Type

Broad shoulders characterize this body type. A bandette with a lace panty would look amazing on this body type, along with camisoles. They all provide a tame look but go a long way in defining this body shape. A camisole can be practical and functional but is never bland when paired the right way. They are a staple for every woman’s wardrobe.

The Ins and Outs of Color Blocking

The Ins and Outs of Color Blocking

If you are looking for a fun and stylish way to make a fashion statement, then color blocking is something you may want to consider. It is a very versatile approach, making new strides with your current wardrobe. Today we will look at what color blocking is exactly and how you can take hold of this trend.

What Is Color Blocking?

Color blocking is when you take colors that are different from each other and then pair them together to create new combinations that both contrast and complement each other in all the right ways. Many have used the color wheel as their inspiration and guide in color blocking, but don’t be afraid to step outside of the box and choose the colors you want.

Colored opaque tights, for example, are becoming increasingly popular for this particular style. 

The Look of Color Blocking

When you color block, it can take your outfit from drab to fab in a heartbeat. You will soon find that the color combinations you can choose from are virtually endless. When choosing your colors, just make sure that the contrast between them is sharp and makes a statement. You don’t want to mix pastels and shades that are the same color.

Color Blocking with Tights

When you want to add some color to your outfit, the tights are a great place to start, especially if you want to try out color blocking. You can match the tight color to your shoes, and this combination can go a long way in lengthening your legs. 

You can also play around with different textures for an even bolder look. Ribbed and cable knits can be found in colored opaque tight varieties. Or you can choose more traditional patterns like plaid or a classic black or white. 

A black skirt, plaid tights, and black shoes, for example, is a great look that you can use for everyday wear. When choosing your tights, just make sure that you are getting the contrast you need to make your color blocking that much more effective.

Avoid Snagging Your New Tights with These Tips

Avoid Snagging Your New Tights with These Tips

So, you just got your new pair of tights, and you were so excited to wear them for the first time. And then it happens. Your brand new pair of tights have a snag, and they are ruined. Well, here are a few ways you can avoid snagging your tights and ensuring that they will last for more than one night out.

Hosiery Gloves

If you are a fan of tights, then the best investment you can make is in a pair of high-quality hosiery gloves. They are reasonably priced and can be washed and worn several times before they need to be replaced.

They are a simple pair of white gloves that keep your fingernails and other rough patches of skin away from your tights. If you wear them while putting on your tights, you can avoid damaging the fabric of the tights.

Use a Good Moisturizer

You can also use a good moisturizer on your hands and feet to prevent dry skin from happening. It is so easy for dry and rough patches or rogue fingernails to snag your tights. This could actually turn out to be a great excuse to get that manicure and pedicure you have wanted, too!

Trim Your Nails

Another way to help prevent snagging is by keeping your fingernails and toenails trimmed down and filed. You should also wait to accessorize until after you put on your tights to avoid a ring or other jewelry from accidentally grabbing the material and causing a snag.

Air Dry

When you put your tights in the dryer, the hot air can significantly damage the tights’ elasticity, which then weakens the fibers in the fabric that could have prevented runs from happening. So, to avoid this unnecessary damage, air dry your tights.

Size Up

Snags and runs will also happen more often if the tights you have are a bit on the small side. It doesn’t hurt to size up a bit. They will be more comfortable and easier to put on, meaning you can avoid snags from trying to pull up tights that are, well, too tight.

Post Snag

So, you took precautions and still find yourself with a snag in your tights. What now? Many of us have heard of the clear nail polish trick, right? While dabbing some clear nail polish on the snag or run won’t necessarily repair it, it will stop the snag from getting any bigger. This is a good trick for when you are out of the house. You can also spray a small amount of hair spray on the snag to harden the area surrounding the hole.

Using Sheer Tights to Your Advantage

Using Sheer Tights to Your Advantage

Once the warmer weather comes back around, we will be ditching our typical winter legwear and replacing it with bare legs to combat the heat. 

However, who really wants to go out bare-legged anyway? If you have less than flawless legs, you may want a way to cover up tiny blemishes that bother you. Well, sheer tights can definitely be used to your advantage.

Disguise Imperfections

What we notice isn’t necessarily noticed by others but how we feel when we go out has a lot to do with our self-confidence. So, if you would rather not go out bare-legged, then go with a great pair of tights.

When choosing tights, find a shade that is closest to your natural skin tone. The best tights are a low denier and are almost whisper-like on your legs. Many consider tights great makeup for your legs. They are like a primer for the legs.

No Pale Legs

After months of winter hibernation, our bare legs may be pale and not ready for a public debut. This is where the right tights can step in and save the day. Tights fit well, can be worn with open-toed shoes, hide your pale skin, and won’t sag. 

Depending on the shade you choose, you can make your legs look amazing. Sheer nude tights are great for every skin tone, including fair or dark skin. 

Glam Up Your Outfit

Tights are also a great way to glam up any outfit you may be wearing. They can be worn with a dress or skirt in cooler weather or even under shorts in warmer weather. You can choose a pair of patterned or fashion tights and pair them with your favorite jean shorts for a bold look. 

For the winter, you can protect your bare legs from the cold with tights and pair them with an over-the-knee boot.

With so many different ways to wear your tights during any season, you want to start building your collection now. Visit us at hosieree.com to choose some new tights and build your wardrobe.

3 Reasons Why Leggings Make Great Loungewear

How many pairs of leggings do you own? They are great legwear to have in any wardrobe because they are incredibly versatile and comfortable. However, you don’t even have to find ways to dress your leggings up for a day out; you can also enjoy your leggings at home as all-day loungewear.

Not Restricting

When lounging around at home, we want to be comfortable and feel unrestricted, right? That isn’t easy to do in a pair of stiff jeans. Yes, we can throw on some pajama bottoms, but sometimes we want to also feel a bit more put together than that  even while just lounging at home. This is where leggings step in and save the day.

Leggings won’t dig into your skin, cause any chafing, or prove to be uncomfortable at all. You will also find it incredibly satisfying pulling them up compared to fighting with a pair of jeans.

They Always Fit

Quarantine life leave you with a few extra pounds? Well, leggings don’t take notice. While your other pants might feel a bit tight these days, you will always smile when putting on a great pair of leggings. They won’t be too tight, and they will prove to be comfortable no matter what.

Natural Range of Motion

Another reason leggings make great loungewear is because they allow you to maintain a natural range of motion. You can stretch out on the couch, do a few yoga poses, or break out into dance. The movement possibilities are endless.

As you can see, leggings really are the new loungewear  when you want them to be. We also can’t forget that they are also totally acceptable as part of our going out ensemble as well, especially when we want to show off that new loose-fitting top we bought online while lounging on the couch in our leggings.

The Controversial Side of Leggings

The Controversial Side of Leggings

We have all probably heard legging and tight horror stories over the years. Maybe someone was wearing leggings that were just too see-through, or they paired their legwear with the wrong top. When wearing leggings and other legwear, the key is knowing when and when not to rock this style.

Today we will look at the more controversial side of leggings and tell you how to properly wear your favorite legwear.

Know the Difference

The first step in wearing your legwear correctly is knowing the difference between the different types. 

Tights: This is a piece of clothing that is often made of a thicker material compared to pantyhose and fits closely over the feet, legs, and waist. 

Holdups: These are stockings or tights held up by sticky material, elastic at the top, or straps. It allows you to achieve the look of tights without having a tight band around your hips. They are comfortable to wear.

Leggings: These are often considered tight and form-fitting and extend from the waist to the ankles. They can be made from various materials, including Lycra, nylon, cotton, or a polyester-cotton blend. 

Stockings: These are often made from a more translucent material and often refer to thigh highs and nylon stockings. They fit closely over the foot and are often held up by garters or a strip at the upper thigh. Holdups are closely related to the stocking. 

How to Wear

Each of these legwear types is certainly a staple for our closet. Leggings are often touted as the most comfortable, but many don’t qualify them as pants. So, we need to be careful about how and where we wear this wardrobe staple.

Leggings

When choosing to wear leggings to work, for example, be sure to pair them with a great top. Leggings are form-fitting, so balance that out with a loose-fitting shirt and cover your behind while hitting your lower thigh area.

Tights

Tights are a great way to show off your legs and look great with a dress or skirt. Match your tights to your skirt or dress or even match them to your shoes. For a classy and elegant look, pair your plain tights with a black dress and heels. 

Holdups

These can be worn when you want to glamorize an everyday outfit. However, keep in mind the length of the dress or skirt you are wearing with them. It needs to be long enough to cover the holdups’ top when you are sitting and standing.

Stockings

Stockings are good for tummy trimming, making a fashion statement, dressing up, or showing off the legs. However, the same kind of rules apply here as they do with holdups. Make sure what you wear covers the top part of the stockings while sitting or standing.
