Everyone’s definition of sexy is different. For some, it means showing as much skin as possible. And for others, it just means feeling confident no matter what you’re wearing (or not). Regardless of your definition, Valentine’s Day lingerie should be whatever you feel your best in.
If you’re looking to invest in some new intimates for the occasion this year, rest assured there are tons of romantic options on the market no matter your style. And really, there’s no better way to celebrate the holiday than treating yourself to something nice — and the best lingerie for Valentine’s Day is the type that makes you feel, well, amazing.
Ahead, find ways to upgrade your lingerie drawer no matter your size, style, budget or relationship status. Want more ideas? Check out our favorite Valentine’s Day gifts for him and gift ideas for her.
