The biggest lingerie trends in the last decade

Let’s talk about lingerie. Undergarments are no longer just something to throw on under your clothes, lingerie is a way to make you feel sexy, confident and help you to see your body with all its beauty.

There are so many different styles and designs out there. It is hard to know what it ‘on trend’, what’s hot and what’s not. Although trends come and go, it doesn’t mean that you need to change your wardrobe every time a new one comes out. You can and will always have your favourites that stay, no matter what. But, what have the trends been? Let’s check out the biggest lingerie trends in the last decade.


Although bralettes are not a new item, they are one that has gained a lot of popularity over the recent years. They have become a staple in many wardrobes.

A bralette is a soft, unstructured bra that does not contain wire to hold it in place. They are not meant to be a supported item. The design gives them a comfy and stylish look. Many will wear their bralettes with a loose-fitting or open-top underneath to show it off.

Strappy Bondage Detail

Another trend that has taken off in the last decade is the added detail to undergarments that give them a bondage-type look and feel to them. This can include strappy details, tie up features and of course a lot of black and deep colours.

This trend is very popular in the bedroom as it has a way of giving the wearer a new sense of confidence and sex appeal.

Lace and Embroidery

The simple and elegant look has also become very popular. Lacey details or embroidery on both underwear and bras gives the wearer a sense of confidence and class.

There are so many different designs that you can now find on the market that are just simply stunning.

The lace and embroidery also give a textured look and feel to the garment and also helps to give it a 3D look which makes it more appealing to look at and to touch. This can also include lace taking up large sections of the lingerie giving it a see-through effect – which is sexy as hell!

Bodysuits and Teddies

For those who want to cover up a bit more, bodysuits are a popular choice.

There are hundreds of different bodysuits now on the market that can cover up a larger section of your body for you. This can help with confidence but also create a different level of sex appeal.

Bodysuits may be entirely made of fabric coverings or it can include cut-out sections to offer a bondage-style. These ones give the illusion that you are covered up but because it is strappy, it also shows a lot!

Bodysuits are the perfect piece of lingerie for those who are wanting to start wearing sexier undergarments during the day, such as at work – but are not confident enough yet to rock their newest bra and g-string set.

Plus Size Lingerie

One of the biggest trends that have come in recent years – which we absolutely LOVE! Is that there is more availability for those who are wearing larger sizes.

Businesses are starting to realise that everyone deserves to feel sexy and confident and are starting to make their lingerie in plus sizes. This is a huge step forward and it is making everyone feel more included and gives everyone a chance to get involved.

We love that we are able to provide pieces that fit all shapes and sizes. We know how important it is to provide quality for all.

Lingerie is a great way to help boost your confidence and self-esteem. When buying your lingerie, you should be choosing items because you love them. Not because they are on-trend. Not because you think your partner will like them. But because – YOU love them.

Find something that makes you feel magical, that you can look and feel confident in and that you will want to wear day in and day out.

Loving yourself both inside and out will help with mental health, mindset and confidence.

So, now that you know some of the biggest trends – have you picked your favourite? Great! The next step is to take a little peek at what self-love and confidence we can offer you here.
