In terms of fabric, satin is usually the most glamorous option because it feels good against the skin, but beware of artificial satins; silk may be better.
Some luxury brands embellish the bodices of their nightgowns and lingerie with beads or beaded lace. Consider this carefully before making a purchase. It looks fantastic and will make you feel great, but will it be comfortable to wear in intimate situations? The same could be said about the less expensive, scratchier laces. Nylon lace may appear attractive, but it is frequently stiff and rough against the skin. Again, not ideal for romantic situations.
There are several factors to consider when selecting a silk nightgown for its sex appeal. Is the color appropriate? Many manufacturers sell a minimal selection; not everyone looks good in black or white; older, more sophisticated women look best in softer colors like peach and grey. Blues, which look great on most women, are largely overlooked by the lingerie industry but are an excellent choice, particularly if you have blue eyes. Soft greens and taupe are often good choices for redheads who want to emphasize their coloring. Unfortunately, the most common colors are black and white, where the details of the garment are usually challenging to see. It is well worth the effort to find just the right color for you to make an impression.
Satin feels lovely against the skin, but silk can be so light that it makes you feel naked. Many women report that this fabric gives them a special ‘naughty’ feeling that no other material does. Chiffon is another popular option, as many men say that the hint of a woman’s body beneath her nightgown is far more exciting than the same woman naked. Chiffon is available in a variety of weights and can be used in multiple layers. Look for a style that hides the parts you don’t like while emphasizing the ones you do. Choose a nightgown that appeals to you and that you feel at ease wearing. Many women report feeling silly in the nightgowns chosen for them by their partners. Buy a silk nightgown that makes you feel glamorous and comfortable but naughty for romantic purposes, and then see where it takes you.
Nightgowns and pajamas are more than just something we wear at night; they are essential garments in which we spend at least a third of our lives. Feeling great in your nightgown allows you to get a good night’s sleep and feel good about yourself. You wake up feeling refreshed, and when you look in the mirror for the first time in the morning, you like what you see.
