Even with the immense popularity of intimate apparel, there are still a lot of women out there who are not comfortable with wearing it. Whether you don’t feel comfortable enough with your partner to introduce intimate apparel or you aren’t comfortable enough with yourself, there is an air of intimidation to it for some. More often than not, however, it is self image that pushes women away from intimate apparel.
Usually it is self esteem that makes it most difficult to introduce such items into a relationship. Don’t fret about it, however. Intimate apparel is meant to be special and different. Introduce it so you can enjoy it, not because you feel like you should.
When you know the time is arriving for the introduction of intimate apparel from your top dresser drawer or closet, there are some things you can do to be ready. For one, have your special item ready so that, when that time comes and the moment strikes, you are prepared. Shop around at retail locations and speak with sales associates to get an idea of what is right for you.
Another way of preparing for intimate apparel use in your love life is to keep it varied. When you buy your items don’t just buy one style or fabric. Give yourself a chance to try different types and see how they make you feel.
A third way to bring in intimate apparel is to go slowly. Maybe at first, the extent of your introduction could be a sexy bra and panty set. Next, you could try a sensuous nightgown or teddy. Give yourself time to adjust before moving on to “sexier” styles.
Yet a fourth way you can take action is to find a reason to bring in intimate apparel. Remember that you don’t have to wait for a birthday or Valentines Day to wear this type of sleepwear. Wearing it on a Thursday night can make that night special. Don’t wait for a special occasion to bring out the intimate apparel, let it create a special occasion.
Lastly, communicate with your partner about how each of you feel about the subject. Ask him what types of lingerie he would like to see you wear. Then, in turn, listen to your partner, and find styles that will stimulate him. If he is stimulated, you will be too.
No matter what, though, the thought of intimate apparel goes a long way. That is, just by wearing or offering to buy the lingerie your partner likes to see, you are sending a message. With your actions you are telling your partner that you care about the physical needs and desires in your relationship. The intimate apparel, then, is a symbol of that desire and caring. So even if that first night it doesn’t work out exactly how you had hoped, you will still have made an impression on your partner.
No matter what your size, shape, or color, intimate apparel can be a valuable part of your life if you let it. Sensuous lingerie can take your love life to new places, and at the same time, help you to overcome self-image and esteem problems by allowing you to allow yourself to look and feel sexy. Intimate apparel is not just about lust, but also very much about romance. By taking chances with this and other aspects of your relationship you can strengthen it. This strength comes merely from the gesture that intimate apparel and other things represent. It is about romance, and romance is about gestures.
