Lingerie makes you feel beautiful, sexy, and empowered, and it can really help reignite the spark in your romantic relationship. So, if you’re looking to add some lingerie to your wardrobe, but you’re on a budget, here are a few tips you can follow to find affordable, sexy lingerie.
Invest in Quality
When you’re on a budget, it can seem tempting to buy the cheapest thing you can find. But lingerie should be considered an investment. You want something that fits you properly, flatters your form, and is built to last. So, though it may cost a little more up front, spend what budget you do have on one or two pieces of higher-quality lingerie that will last for months or even years, rather than buying a bunch of cheap lingerie that will rip or fray after only a few uses.
Shop the Sales
Keep an eye on the sales from your favorite stores. Every store is going to have one at some time, so take advantage of these events. January is a common time for shops to have a lingerie sale, after the spike in holiday spending is over. This is a great opportunity to stock up on all of the lingerie you will need for the rest of the year.
For example, right after Christmas, you’re likely to find a lot of sales on holiday-specific lingerie. While the time for a Christmas-inspired teddy has passed, it’ll roll back around. Buy that lingerie on the cheap, and stow it away until next Christmas, when you can break it out as a surprise for your significant other on Christmas Eve.
Online shopping is obviously more of a norm than it was just a few years ago, but many women still hesitate to buy things like lingerie online. This is understandable, as finding the proper fit is extremely important for something like this. But if you’re willing to take the time to measure yourself at home (or have a friend or family member help you measure yourself), then you can typically find an accurate fit by following the store’s online sizing guide.
Ultimately, shopping online is typically a lot cheaper than buying items in the store. Brick-and-mortar stores have a lot more overhead costs that they have to cover, and those costs get passed on to you. Online lingerie stores don’t have to cover the expenses associated with a physical location, so they can typically sell the same quality of lingerie for a much lower price.
And, as a bonus, you don’t have to deal with the awkwardness of having a changing room attendant hovering outside the room as you try on your lingerie.
Mix and Match
Many style experts recommend buying some essentials that can be mixed and matched to create different looks. This gives you more use out of every clothing item, which can save you money. The same idea can be applied to lingerie. Start with some of the basics, like a lacy black bra and matching panties. These can function as sexy lingerie but still, have daily use. When you have the budget to buy another item, add a simple teddy, which can be worn over the bra and panties you already have.
