Everyone makes a huge deal out of Valentine's Day, when we all know that Valentine's Night is when the real celebration takes place. It's the one night a year where it's OK to drop a pretty penny on lingerie that will spend more time on the floor than on your bod. Whether you're going for subtle sex appeal or no-holds-barred naughtiness, we've found the bras, panties, bustiers, and teddies that will get you revved up for romance.
You're Going For: Sophisticated Chic
Your Best Bet: Wacoal's Lost in Lace Underwire Bra ($44) and Matching Tanga Panties ($28) recall old Hollywood glamour with their chic, sheer black lace over nude. They work beautifully even beyond Valentine's Day.
You're Going For: Wild and Animalistic
Your Best Bet: Ready to show your savage side in the sack? Opt for Dolce & Gabbana's Orchidea Maculata demi bra ($145) and thong ($75). The luxe tiger tells your man that you're one kitty who's up for anything. Pair 'em with blood red lipstick for ultimate impact.
You're Going For: Sweet and Demure
Your Best Bet: Freya's Arabella plunge bra ($58)and thong ($34) combine the sweet — delicate scalloping, precious bows and baby blue ribbon detailing — with the sexy. In this blush-pink set, you're not putting all your cards on the table right away, and we all know there's something so seductive about a little coyness and mystery.
Your Best Bet: Fire up your hot rollers, break out your highest patent leather stilettos and vamp it up in Victoria's Secret's saucy polka-dot bustier set ($58). Show your sexiest spots in black and white, and make sure to practice your most provocative Vargas-inspired poses. Pair this set with Leg Avenue's racy red and black thigh-highs ($23) for the campiest come-on your guy's ever seen.
Your Best Bet: Long after your lingerie of choice has come off and been duly strewn about your bedroom, you still need to get your beauty sleep. Catch a few sexy Z's and let your mood be known with Mary Green's Hot Tonight sleep mask ($24). One side of the frilly satin mask reads "Hot Tonight," the other reads "Not Tonight." Hopefully you won't be flipping to the latter side on Valentines night, but we understand if you need to use it to get your forty winks in for the rest of the week.
