What should you ask yourself on your satin lingerie shopping trip? Here is some great advice for lingerie shopping.

Lingerie Shopping For Satin Nightgowns

* Decide what the night gown and lingerie is for. If it is for your wedding night, then opt for a style that shows your romantic or seductive side. The same rule applies should you be contemplating a fabulous romantic weekend getaway or a special trip. But, if you are looking to relax and pamper yourself at home, then a classic nightgown with simple lines is a great choice. Consider things like whether you want a slit on the side of the nightgown or not. Or, if you prefer spaghetti shoulder straps or sleeveless styles. A long and plush satin nightgown will make the moment just right every time.

* Accentuate the positive and camouflage the negative. If for instance, you have gorgeous long legs, why not wear a short gown. If you've got a gorgeous bustline, go for a plunging neckline that will emphasize your girls. Or, if you have rounded hips like the pop star Shakira, accentuate that feminine silhouette with a night gown that hugs those curves. Not in love with your legs and want to hide them, then opt for longer nightgowns with a hint of a slit up the side. Satin nightgowns are available in all these and more, so finding one for your shape and body is not a problem.

* Select a color that you like, but also something that makes the occasion more meaningful. Light colors like white and pastels suggest a quiet reprieve from a long, busy day. On the other hand, audacious colors like red, violet, and always sexy black project seduction and risque. These colors make a fearless and feminine lingerie statement. They represent someone who loves seduction and intimacy. Color in ladies sleepwear reflects personality and intent in lingerie and intimate apparel. So, go ahead and select a color that you will enjoy and feel fabulous in and your love of lingerie will flourish.
