It’s the little things that promise to make Valentine’s Day memorable for you and your special someone. You can have dinner lined up at the best restaurant in town and plans to see that much-buzzed-about flick, but you’ll love the way slipping into some comfortable lingerie makes you feel.
Here are five fabulous picks for Valentine’s lingerie, all of which come in at under $50. Oh, and guys: maybe let her pick out her own intimates. It’s a safer bet for you to focus on more traditional Valentine’s Day gifts for her.
The flirty little babydoll is perfect if you’re feeling adventurous and want to branch out of your comfort zone, and take a baby step up from your usual nightgown.
This number from French Connection ($48) is available in this pretty raspberry-red hue, along with a classic black. It features comfortable criss-cross straps, and a pair of matching panties to complete your look.
If you favor more coverage, opt for a lengthier nightgown that still offers the same slinky silhouette as a mini babydoll.
This Natori Shangri-La Nightgown ($29.97) features all the hallmarks of the most comfortable piece in your closet — sinfully soft jersey fabric, a lightweight texture, and a scoop neckline. The spaghetti straps are also adjustable for your comfort.
The shorts set
Love a cute two-piece? Slip into a silky shorts set like this Love Stories pairing ($49) from Chelsea28.
The satiny touch alone makes it appealing, but a hint of lace elevates the romance factor. The pretty peony pink hue is accented by graphic diamonds that lend it eye-catching allure.
The sexy robe
Everyone should have at least one sexy robe in her wardrobe. It provides you with more options than you might think — you can slip it on over a contrasting nightgown, or wear it with nothing underneath if you want to surprise your significant other on date night.
