"Lingerie has slowly evolved from just a necessity to fantasy."
For years, Asian brides often shied away from honeymoon lingerie shopping.
The idea of figuring out what to wear for your first night as a married woman was considered embarrassing or taboo.
In recent years however, stores such as Victoria’s Secret and other high street outlets have made it more acceptable for British Asian women to buy that special honeymoon lingerie set.
It isn’t just about buying something aesthetically pleasing that flatters your figure. Other elements play a key part, such as comfort, price, and how it makes you feel as a woman.
So whether you’re buying a lingerie set as a present, or if you yourself are looking for that perfect honeymoon attire, make sure you pick out the right pieces to make it a night to remember!
British Asian women are becoming more accustomed to wearing lingerie based on their erotic effects.
Corsets, garters and stockings are perfect for adding spice into your outfit. Corsets give you with that enticing hourglass figure and fuller breasts, whilst stockings and garters elongate your legs and range in shades and deniers, so you have the ultimate selection.
If venturing into a high street store to do your lingerie shopping isn’t for you, don’t fret! Online outlets provide women with the freedom and discretion to experiment with sexier attires.
Suchi Mukherjee, CEO and founder of LimeRoad.com comments: “Women now can venture out to a vast selection of kinkier and sexier items within the comfort of their own homes.
“For our shoppers, lingerie has slowly evolved from just a necessity to fantasy.”

As well as having the right bra, slips and teddy pieces are ideal for their unstructured, soft materials. This silk and lace piece by Victoria’s Secret will have you feeling sexy and snug all at once.

For those who aren’t completely comfortable flashing the flesh, babydoll lingerie gives you the cover-up you desire, but with a flirty touch.
The light material leaves you feeling like you’re gliding across the bedroom. Most babydoll pieces have a mesh material for the body which will give your partner a glimpse of what lies underneath.
You can choose between flirty, frilly babydolls in light pink and whites, or sultry baby-dolls in blacks and reds.
If you are conscious about your stomach area, go for babydolls that have a full body material, as this will conceal your midriff and place all focus on your legs and bust.
The great thing about babydolls is that they flatter all body types, so whether you’re petite or curvaceous, you will be spoilt for choice with these lingerie items.
