Sheer lingerie is one of the most popular lingerie styles simply because of its versatility and beauty. For the woman who is not quite comfortable putting it all out there sheer lingerie gives a little more coverage and allows her to choose the level of exposure. For others, it is the art of seduction and the desire to titillate their partner that is the motivation to collect sheer or transparent lingerie. Or maybe, just the feel of the light, silky soft fabric against the skin is reason enough.
What is Sheer Fabric?
Sheer fabric is one that is transparent to varying degrees. They are elegant, feminine fabrics that are available in many types of fibers and fiber blends. Chiffon is the most widely used sheer material in the design of lingerie and comes in a vast array of colors and degrees of opaqueness. Fine lace, nylon and mesh fabrics are just a few of the other popular materials used in the design of fine sheer and transparent lingerie. Sheer material used in the design of lingerie is soft, silky and very drape able and all have light, airy, see-through characteristics.
Sheer fabrics are most frequently used in lingerie designs that are loose and flowing or have an oversized silhouette. The best sheer lingerie designs show off the beauty of the human body as well as the fullness and softness of the fabric. It’s the combination of these two that make sheer or transparent lingerie so appealing to both men and women
It’s not uncommon to find two different types of sheer material used together to give a multi dimensional look to an elegant piece of lingerie. Bridal lingerie for example, consistently blends fine lace work with flowing chiffon to give it the look of sophistication and elegance. Leather and sheer lace is another sexy blending of material for the more extreme exotic and fetish style designs.
Sheer Lingerie is the perfect choice for women of all shapes and sizes!
Sheer lingerie is designed and marketed to women of all shapes and sizes. It doesn’t matter if you are a size 0 or a 4X there is a lingerie store that will have exactly what you desire. Unlike some styles of lingerie, sheer lingerie is light and flowing and drapes elegantly over all body types and can help minimize or accentuate different areas of a woman’s body.
For women who have trouble finding lingerie in larger sizes, shopping at lingerie stores that cater exclusively to that demographic is most often the best choice. Not only is the selection going to be larger but the designers are focused on designing specifically for a more curvy body type.
