Going on a honeymoon with your partner to a faraway land is probably one of the most amazing parts about getting hitched. Of course, the drum roll leading to the ‘my wedding is coming’ is awesome, but getting a break from the overwhelming rituals and the heavy jewellery and slipping into some naughty honeymoon lingerie instead could be a huge sigh of relief.
Honeymoon for every new bride is the time to relax and spend some quality time with the new husband. Unfortunately, even though we daydream about how fantastic and romantic our honeymoon would be, many brides put off the very essential honeymoon shopping until the last minute.
But to look your sexiest on the honeymoon and treat yourself with some amazingly sexy garments it’s important to plan ahead. Here are 10 essential lingerie pieces that you should pack for the honeymoon to woo your man in bed and yourself, in the mirror.
How To Shop For Honeymoon Lingerie?
There’s a lot of pressure around looking your best or sexiest for your honeymoon and this pressure might give some brides the jitters. However, we need to remember that yes, looking sexy is important but being comfortable and confident in your own skin is more important.
Sexy is as sexy does! So when you’re out shopping make sure you buy honeymoon lingerie that you feel comfortable and confident in. Something that highlights your best parts according to you.
A lot of brides tell us that they tend to have awkward experiences if they are first-time lingerie shoppers. This hesitation is normal however, it’s good to note that there is nothing to be awkward about. If you’re shopping in a brick-and-mortar store, a lot of times the staff will want to help you out, see the fit and help you measure your bust size correctly.
It can be a little awkward at first but most of them will put you at ease and make you comfortable and make your shopping experience worthwhile. But if you still think this is too much for you, don’t be afraid to do some shopping online.
Ensure that you have done adequate research regarding your honeymoon lingerie/bridal intimates and know your size well before ordering online.

5. Stockings for spice
Stockings are sexy, flattering and make you feel confident like no other piece of lingerie. Slip into one at night to turn up the heat in your honeymoon suite.
Especially if you’re going to a colder place for a honeymoon, these can also act as good insulation.
6. A fancy, lacy negligee for nights
Leave your pyjamas and old nightshirts back home and pack the most sensuous night dress before going to bed. Hence, the negligee. Choose a fancy, lacy one to have a memorable night together with your new husband.
Negligee is all about seductive back styles, so choose a style that flaunts your curves well. Choose a material that looks luxurious and feminine. When it comes to prints, you can go for classic black and animal prints, or pastel colours like mauve, peach and off-white as per your personal style.
