I love the coziness of Winter. Iced teas get swapped for hot chocolate and the AC for a crackling fireplace. And in the lingerie world, stores focus less on the thin, silk pieces that abound in summer to make way for more luxurious, warmer fabrics like cashmere and velvet.
Whatever the season, there’s something about velvet that feels oh-so-festive. Practically speaking, the more substantial weight will keep you warmer. But also, the subtle shimmer reminds me of all the glittering party-wear that fills stores in December. In fact, some of the pieces below could even be your party-wear for that New Year’s get-together with a bit of smart layering.
Of course, it goes without saying that if velvet is wintry, then red velvet is the epitome of all things festive. We’ve all seen those cheap ‘sexy Santa’ lingerie costumes with their white fur trims. But the Mrs. Claus that I picture is all opulence and glamour in her red velvet dressing gown. Or perhaps she’s a bit more chill, keeping her toes toasty in some red velvet socks.
To help you add a touch of festive fun and glamour to your lingerie drawer this season, I’ve rounded up 20 red velvet lingerie looks below. Prices run from below $10 through to luxury splurges and sizes from XS to 4X. And with styles from retro to modern and minimalist, hopefully, there is something here to appeal to everyone!
