Not all lingerie is meant to please someone else. Sometimes you need a little private pampering. Try this:
Robes are a great addition to any lingerie ensemble. But which robes go with what pieces of lingerie? The best rule of thumb is if the lingerie is form-fitting, such as a teddy, pretty much any robe of any weight can go over it. Heavy silks or satins as well as sheer and lacy robes can accompany almost any nightgown, teddy or peignoir as long as the colors work together. If the garment is already flowing, such as a baby doll or a loose chemise, your best bet is to pick a sheer robe that will not crimp the movements of the lingerie underneath it.
Don't underestimate the power of a robe. Think of robes as curtains that cover a well-dressed stage. Wear your sexiest lingerie and keep it covered with a seductive robe until you're ready to start the show. Once you open that robe and reveal the delicacies that await your audience, you'll both be singing the praises of deferred pleasure!
Women have changing moods. Luckily, so does a woman's plus size robe. Hug your curves in a variety of styles. If you're feeling a little eastern, try a kimono robe or a robe with a mandarin collar. Feeling like a jungle cat? Why not slip into a daring animal print robe? Or for a demure look, try a pretty lace robe. It's great to know you can change your robe as often as you change your mood!
If you're looking for a quick and easy way to glam up your look for an evening in, try a women's robe. Everyone looks good in a robe, whether it's silk or satin, fine cotton or lace. Whatever your personality, there are plenty of robe styles to chose from. So what are you waiting for? Wrap up and cinch that sash. It's time to get glamorous!
