Everything you need to know about the Babydoll

The babydoll remains a must-have garment for anyone that loves their lingerie. Suitable for everything from seduction to sleeping, babydoll's are the perfect addition to your lingerie collection, offering something that is comfortable yet still sexy. It is also suitable for virtually any body and with so many gorgeous garments available, it is easy to find the perfect babydoll for your needs.

Boasting a versatile design that caters to all body types, this naughty negligee has a storied history dating back decades, and while improvements have been made over the years, the core concept of the babydoll remains mostly unchanged.

This highlights just how timeless the babydoll is. Made from lightweight fabrics, the sleeveless nightgown is typically short in length and loose-fitting - a result of the lack of fabrics available during World War II when it was first manufactured.

Popularised by glamorous Hollywood icons of the 1950s, the babydoll soon became a mainstay in lingerie collections across the world, something that continues to this day! Better still, there are no shortages of fabrics to make this type of lingerie, with luxurious textiles like silk and chiffon offering the perfect balance between style and comfort. 


Why we love the women's babydoll

Perhaps the best reason we love babydoll's is their versatility. Simply put, you won’t find much lingerie that is both comfortable and sexy. As a nightgown, the loose-fitting form, short length, and lack of sleeves offers ample comfort for those hotter nights.

Of course, as a negligee it remains a seductive garment that can be used to set the perfect mood for a night of love and romance. Whether you want to seduce your partner, celebrate a special occasion in style, or just feel sexy for yourself, a babydoll ticks all the boxes.

With various fabrics used, babydoll's take on various styles. For example, bridal babydolls are soft and sensual while maintaining that seductive edge, making it ideal for post-wedding celebrations. There are styles that focus more so on comfort, these being great for sleepwear, and most are simply beautiful when worn, offering an elegant and luxurious feel that you expect from sexy lingerie.

Additionally, the babydoll is suitable for any body shape. No matter your weight, height, or build, a babydoll will accentuate your body in all the right ways. There are styles for highlighting certain areas while concealing others, making it possible to find a garment that fits you perfectly while leaving you looking gorgeous.


Choosing the Right Babydoll

Not sure what to look for when buying a sexy babydoll? Here are some things to consider: 

What is its Purpose?

Think about why you are buying the garment. Is it for sexy sleepwear, something to seduce a lover, or celebrating a special occasion? Identifying the purpose makes it much easier to find the perfect babydoll for your needs! 

What Do You Want to Show off?

We all have parts of our body that we love and want to show off. Conversely, we also have parts we hate and would prefer not to highlight. Think about each of these and use it to help find a style of babydoll that you feel confident wearing - babydolls are amazing for hiding certain areas while highlighting others! 

Don’t Focus Too Much on Size

Babydoll sizes are not the same as other types of lingerie. Rather than traditional sizing, many babydolls come in small, medium, and large size options, while certain garments only come in a one size option.

The style of the garment tends to impact its fit more than anything else, with some designed to be loose fitting and others more figure hugging. So, don’t focus too much on the sizes of the item, rather looking for styles that accentuate your figure.


Types of Babydolls

As mentioned, there are countless styles of babydoll's available. These typically fall into a few distinct categories, each one creating a unique aesthetic for the wearer while maintaining the main design of the night dress.


The Romantic Babydoll Dress

Romantic babydoll dresses cover a wide range of products, although we typically think of sensual and luxurious designs using romantic colours and fabrics. Think classic sexy lingerie colours like black or red, while modern designs often incorporate rich and elegant purples and turquoises.

These are equal parts sexy and comfortable, although they often tend to focus on a night of passion and romance in the bedroom. As with any babydoll, you can use it for seduction or sleeping, although we like to recommend the former with our romantic babydoll range.

Here are a few examples of romantic babydolls:






The Naughty Babydoll

While you can certainly seduce with a romantic babydoll, the naughty babydoll is intended for those that want to leave little to the imagination. These garments are often lower cut than others, making great use of sheer materials, pairing them with other fabrics to create an insanely seductive look.

These garments are for the kinkier people out. Sometimes there are lots of see-through portions to the dress, while other times portions like the cups are missing entirely - we even have a few strappy numbers that are as skimpy as a babydoll gets.

While soft and sensual materials can be used for a naughty babydoll, we prefer naughtier fabrics that leave you too tempting to resist. Think black wet look, mesh, and strappy garments such as these below!

Here are a few examples of naughty babydolls:







Bridal Babydoll's

Yes, the dress is one of the most important aspects of any wedding day, yet don’t forget the importance of bridal lingerie! Celebrating your first evening as a married couple should be an unforgettable experience, and there are fewer garments better suited for this than a slinky bridal babydoll.

As you can imagine, these negligees make good use of white, with various hues paired together with beautiful trims and detailing to create a soft, delicate appearance. That said, you will still look your seductive best for a night of wedding celebrations, with various styles available to let you achieve the desired aesthetic.

Some brides want their lingerie to look sensual while others prefer a naughtier, more seductive appearance, so bridal baby-dolls come in a variety of designs to suit all preferences.

Valentine’s Day - Look no further, it's all here.

Buying gifts for Valentine’s Day does not need to be the chore many make it to be. Yes, it can be stressful trying to scramble together an idea for a romantic gift, with most going for the safe bet of chocolates, flowers, and possibly a cute love-themed teddy.

While they certainly lack originality, these gifts are a good option because they are your typical gifts for Valentine’s Day and are widely available, making it easier for those that are stuck on ideas for what to buy their partner.

However, one gift that too many people overlook for Valentine’s Day is sexy lingerie. This is the perfect gift for the most romantic day of the year, being something that you both get to enjoy, making all the romantic festivities that more enjoyable.

Of course, choosing the right Valentine’s Day lingerie is not always easy, especially when buying it for someone else, so check out our comprehensive guide for all the important info you need to know!


Who would you buy Sexy Lingerie for?

A good place to start is by considering who the gift is for. Obviously, it is someone you are romantically involved with, but it helps to think about where your current relationship is, as this should help influence what products are best suited for your situation.

For example, is this someone that you have just started dating or have been together for a long time? Are you planning a romantic weekend away together or are keeping things simple with a night in?

Those in long-term relationships will probably have a better idea of what styles of lingerie their partner will prefer, while those in newer relationships may need to do some research to determine what they might like.

By thinking carefully about who the lingerie is for, you should have a better idea of what items they will like and what things you may want to avoid. Buying for yourself? Then you probably already know what you like and what turns your partner on, so focus more so on styles and garments you will both enjoy.


Choosing a style of underwear

When choosing sexy Valentine’s Day lingerie it helps to know what styles are available. There is a lot different types of lingerie available in various styles, any of which may be to you or your partners liking.

There are many options available, any of which may be to your or your partners liking, whether it’s classic bra and panty sets or something more unique like a teddy, corset, chemise, or nightdress. If choosing for a partner, think about what type of lingerie items they already own to help find something they might like.

Also, consider what you are doing on Valentine’s Day when choosing a style. While something may look stunningly sexy for a night in the bedroom, it may not be comfortable or practical for an evening dinner date, so plan accordingly when looking at garment styles.


Choosing a Colour

One of the first things to consider when buying lingerie for Valentine’s Day is the colour. Certain colours are more befitting for this occasion, with obvious colours including seductive reds and blacks.

However, don’t assume you need to buy something in red, pink, or black, as there many other gorgeous colours for lingerie that she might like. From rich blues and purples to golds and silvers, there are many non-traditional colours for Valentine’s Day lingerie that will look breath-taking on, so don’t feel pigeon-holed into the usual colours.

Consider what colours she likes - look at her wardrobe and maybe a peek at her underwear drawer (assuming you are at that point in your relationship) to get a better idea of what tones she might feel sexiest in.


Choosing a Fabric

Sexy lingerie is typically made of more sensual materials like satin, silk, lace, and sheer. These not only look great but also feel amazing on the skin, helping the wearer feel much sexier, which is always what you want from lingerie.

Certain fabrics evoke a particular style, however, so you may want to consider what look you want to achieve, whether its for yourself or a partner. For example, silk and lace are often considered more romantic or glamorous, making these a great option for most Valentine’s lingerie.

Those seeking a more daring and risqué look may want to consider other fabrics like sheer and mesh, which leave less to the imagination, evoking a much naughtier look that many love. You can take things a step further with PVCs and leathers for a much kinkier aesthetic that is perfect for a wild night in the bedroom.


Tips for Choosing the Sexiest Valentine’s Day Lingerie


Romantic Lingerie - A Classic That Won’t Disappoint

Most lingerie retailers focus on romantic garments for this time of the year, so will notice some common themes in the various products for sale. For example, most romantic lingerie is made from lace, with the sensual fabric offering the perfect balance of naughty and nice, looking daring but classy at the same time.

These are often sold in reds, whites, and blacks, although purples and blues are becoming more widespread. Look for features that are revealing but also teasing, which is why lace is a good choice of material common on most romantic lingerie.

In terms of garments, most types of lingerie can be found in romantic styles including bra and panties, teddies, chemises and babydoll's.

Undress to Impress

One of the great things about Valentine’s Day lingerie is that it usually does not take long to end up on the floor! So, why not plan for the inevitable... by purchasing lingerie that is perfect for strip teasing?

We recommend combing lingerie items for the ultimate Valentine’s Day striptease, as the more you have to remove the more anticipation you build! Bras and panties often come off last, so consider items that you can wear over these while undressing, with naughty negliges and night robes being especially good for this. You can add accessories like stockings and gloves too - anything you both will enjoy taking off!

Hearts and Bows for Fun Themed Lingerie

You will find a lot of stores are selling lingerie specifically for Valentine’s Day. They are typically red and have themed details such as a love hearts and ribbons. These are available in romantic and raunchy styles alike, with some being more revealing while others are more traditional lingerie items.

If you are unsure what to buy, these are a good option as they are fun and cheeky so can certainly be enjoyed by most couples.

Get Your Kink on with Some Risqué Garments

Looking for some less traditional Valentine’s Day lingerie? Then be sure to consider something more daring like PVC or leather lingerie, with various kinky garments available that are perfect for a wild night in the boudoir.

Remember, the lingerie doesn’t need to look a certain style for it to be appropriate for Valentine’s Day - it doesn’t not matter what it looks like as long as it makes the wearer feel sexy and leads to a passionate night of romance!
