The Benefits of Wearing Lingerie
Why Every Woman Should Wear Lingerie

We can't deny it: coming home after a long day and changing into your PJs and sloppy T-shirt has a certain calming effect. It's comforting. Yes. But also, not that great for your self-esteem. Hear us out here: you make an effort for your boss, your friends, your partner. Why don't you put as much effort into impressing yourself? Good question, right? Lingerie can make you feel really good about yourself. Learn more, here!

Increase Your Confidence & Self-Esteem

Lingerie has many benefits. A proper fitting bra is way more comfortable and makes clothes hang better on your body. If you're in a relationship, your partner will probably love seeing you in sexy underthings. It puts you in touch with your femininity, and makes you feel lovely and pretty.

However, the biggest plus to wearing lingerie? It improves your confidence ten-fold. In an article published by Cosmopolitan Magazine, a woman explains how wearing lingerie to bed for seven consecutive nights changed her life.  

On the first night, she exchanged her usual PJs for a "forgiving" silk chemise. She writes:

The silk made me feel sexier than the cotton I usually wore — and much more grown-up, which is exactly how I should feel as a 28-year-old living with my 30-plus boyfriend in New York City. After breaking our dry spell and blowing out the candle, I fell asleep wearing the outfit, which made me feel like I was wrapped in a silk sheet. 

Obviously, wearing lingerie to bed for seven nights in a row had a wonderful effect on her sex life, but our writer found a more meaningful benefit to the exercise: 

 "While I'd begun the challenge with (my partner) in mind, it was becoming clear that I was the one who'd reaped the greatest rewards. Just six nights of skimpier sleepwear made me feel immeasurably more comfortable in my skin and my bed.

Yep, investing in some delicious lingerie means you are investing in yourself. You're showing yourself that you think you are worth dressing up for.

An article by Your Tango points out that your clothing choices directly impact how you feel about yourself. Experts found that people who wore a Superman T-shirt under their clothing made wearers feel more confident, which in turn made them behave in a more confident manner. The same rule applies to lingerie. 

Ladies, the bottom line is that lingerie is not just for enticing men. No - it's beautiful clothing that you should wear all day to make you feel good about yourself. Thought Catalogue writes a great piece on how lingerie can empower women. 

According to the article, research has actually proven that wearing coordinating panties and bras can increase your self esteem. 

When you spend the time and effort to wear beautiful lingerie, you're basically affirming your self-worth and boosting your self-confidence.

It ignites feminine creativity and when you think about it, it helps in taking yourself seriously, because let’s be real, do you even take yourself serious when you’re lounging in PJ’s all day?

Good point, right? So the moral of our oral - try wearing some lingerie under your clothes tomorrow and see how it makes you feel. Then do it again the next day. Soon, you'll be feeling more confident, more valuable and more loving of yourself.
