lingerie party

Whether it’s part of a bridal shower or simply a girls night sleepover, these get-togethers can be a really fun strategy for gal bonding, not to mention a phenomenal opportunity to celebrate your body and flaunt it in a safe environment.

One of the first thoughts you have upon receiving an event invitation revolves around what you’re going to wear. While it may be easy to pick out your favorite cocktail dress or formal top for a typical soiree, selecting an ensemble for a lingerie party is a whole different story altogether.

Choosing what pieces to sport can be an overwhelming task. Still, finding an ensemble that suits your own personal style is definitely possible. So, need a little guidance? Here’s some foolproof advice on what to wear to a lingerie party depending on the vibe you’re going for.


If you’re seeking a look that’s on the fun, playful side of sexy, consider a comfy romper. There are so many to choose from — including styles that are strapless, sleeveless, silk, satin, cotton and more. A solid one in a rich hue like burgundy, navy or eggplant has a more seductive feel, while one with a floral, striped or geometric print is a little bit spunkier.

You can easily throw a leather jacket or another layer over the romper until you feel comfortable enough to take it off. Pair it with some delicate necklaces or bangles for a hint of glimmer and throw your hair in a topknot for an effortlessly chic finish.


We love the combo of a pretty bustier or corset with black leggings, pants, or a fitted midi skirt. There’s something about showing a little skin up top while having a little coverage on the bottom that strikes a confident note.

Pro tip: Toss a jacket over your top of choice and wear this on the way to the party without anyone knowing you’re en route to a lingerie soiree. You could also go with an unbuttoned silk pajama shirt over a molded plunge bra that shows off a little cleavage, and wear silky leggings on the bottom. Go bold on your jewelry with this look — chandelier earrings or even a statement necklace.

Retro romance

If you’re the kind of gal who likes to rock vintage apparel, why not incorporate your personal style into your lingerie party look? Consider a retro-inspired padded bra with contrasting matte and satin and a dainty bow in a punchy red or dusty rose. You can wear it with a high-waisted pencil skirt for a vintage pin-up vibe, or even high-waisted jeans and an open cardigan if you’re seeking additional coverage.


Looking for a more modest outfit option? Try a classic black padded demi bra with decorative floral lace — it’ll look stunning peeking out from underneath a cute button-down shirt. Another option is to pair a simple white tank with black silky pajama shorts or pants and a silky robe. This look is super cute and comfortable to boot. All you need for either of these ensembles are some pointy flats or pumps and simple pearl or crystal earrings to tie it all together.

Feminine and flirty

A chemise or babydoll is a chic choice that also offers decent coverage, but is still a little sexier than your average nightie — and they come in a range of lengths and fabrics depending on your level of modesty or the look you’re trying to achieve.

plunge longline bra with delicate floral lace in a romantic hue like French blue or cameo rose pink looks pretty under an open blouse. Pair with a flouncy lace-trimmed skirt or your favorite jeans for an effortlessly elegant appeal.

There’s no rule that attending a lingerie party requires you solely wear a bra and panties — in fact, there are a range of different options to choose from depending on your own unique style as well as your comfort level. Hopefully, these ideas have instilled a little fashion inspiration — now it’s time to get excited for what’s bound to be a memorable night with your best girlfriends.
