Velvet Lingerie: ‘Cause Baby It’s Cold Outside

  |   By Elisabeth Dale

Velvet lingerie is everywhere right now. It’s the perfect Winter fabric thanks to its smooth and thicker texture. Just looking at velvet makes me feel all warm inside.

It’s not just showing up on bras, either. You’ll find it on bralettes, bodysuits, chemises, slips, briefs, lounge shorts, and robes. It’s often used as a trim, or crushed and burned out—adding an exotic touch to more ordinary intimate apparel.

Several brands feature the traditional holiday hues of burgundy, red, and green. But you can also pick from bright teals, dark blues, hot fuschias, pale silvers, basic blacks, and creamy whites.

As with all lingerie, construction and quality of materials differ widely. But these differences also make it possible for anyone to get in on this fashion trend.

You might shy away from buying velvet lingerie because you’re afraid it’s harder to clean and maintain. But just like other pieces of lingerie, it is easy to hand wash (do check the manufacturer’s recommendations first, though). The biggest no-no is never to iron and instead steam out wrinkles.

Here’s are 15 beautiful velvet lingerie pieces representing a range of styles, budgets, and sizes, which you might want to try. Let me know your favorites in the comments below!
