After the virginal white or innocent ivory of your wedding day, your honeymoon is a chance to really push the boat out and get something daring, romantic or seductive to surprise your new husband!
For passionate nights away together, flirty, frilly, sheer and see‐through, or even more daring styles will work wonders on your amorous other half. Black or coloured sets will be fun to wear and could ensure you have a honeymoon to remember! If your undies of choice are usually quite functional then you may want to grasp this opportunity to try out some fun styles for a change such as camisoles and French knickers or all‐in‐one bodys. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s comfortable. Hot weather honeymoons call for lighter textures where probably simple bra and knickers sets will be best. If you’re honeymooning in a colder climate then fur accessories could add a thrill. Taking along different lingerie styles will keep him guessing too so consider packing a pale pink 2 piece and a contrasting black lacey one piece for variety.
If you’re going somewhere with a pool, beach or even just a hot tub, you’re going to need some swimwear. Bikinis are best for sunbathing and one‐piece swimsuits are better for swimmers or those who’d rather not show off their tummy. There are various other options, such as the tankini – a cross between a swimsuit and bikini, or the cut‐out swimsuit which is a one piece with large sections literally cut out to reveal more flesh. A pretty sarong or sequinned beach dress will cover you up a little when you decide to come out of the water and into the bar.
You may not be planning to wear anything at night but some sexy sleepwear could be just the thing for those hot summer evenings away. Cute 1960s‐style baby doll night dresses are fun and silky teddys or satin camisoles and shorts are lovely too. Don’t forget to take a long silky robe to preserve your modesty in the hotel though.
