Why is Sexy Red Lingerie So Popular?

Red  is a hot and strong colour that draws passion into the mind. This makes it a great choice for ladies and gents alike who like their sexy underwear adventurous and expressive.  This striking shade  is a colour of power. In the case of naughty lingerie it most definitely conveys a strong power of seduction and charm.  When women slide into a bright crimson basque and suspenders they rejoice in the vampish sensual look. They  feel powerful and in control making this a great choice for ladies who like to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to style (and passion!)

During Chinese New Year, people often exchange gifts of red underwear for luck.  There are so many shades  in the palette of this amazing colour. It’s completely unsurprising that it is so popular with people shopping for undergarments – particularly at Christmas when the colour takes on a festive feel.   Sexy scarlet, cute crimson, vampish vermillion, crazy carmine, marvellous maroon, beautiful burgundy, rose, ruby, rouge, cinnabar, rust, russet and flame are just a few shades of this colour in which you can buy some gorgeous underwear such as corsets, bras, chemise, babydolls, tights, stockings, and all manner of sexy red lingerie.

It’s not for nothing that the description of a wild night out is painting the town red – so go wild ladies and treat yourself to some truly wild undies fashioned in this hot, fiery and adventurous shade.

How To Choose A Sexy Red Lingerie Set

You know you’d like to seduce your lover in a saucy red item of underwear but how do you choose the set that’s right for you? You don’t want something uncomfortable or unflattering so how do you get it right? The secret is knowing your body shape and what cuts work best for you.

For example, some women adore the look and feel of red Babydolls because they glide over the body. Others prefer to show off every single curve by going for a red basque, or a corset and some stockings. It’s all about being happy in your skin because ladies – confidence oozes sexiness. If you feel good then chances are you look fantastic and no lover will be able to resist your sassy red ways.

Strapless, halterneck, spaghetti straps, deep plunge, high neck – there is a huge choice available in the women’s underewar market. There is something for everyone from petite to plus size, from tall to short and highly erotic to much tamer. The great thing about red is that it’s such a sensual colour that even the basic nighties scream romance and passion.

Who Suits Red Underwear?

Are you worried you don’t look great in shades of red and have avoided it thus far for that reason? Let’s look into the colour a little more and discover just who can wear red without it clashing with their eyes or hair.

Best Skin Tones To Match Red Lingerie

The great news when it comes to skin tone is that all pretty much skin tones can get away with some shades of red.

Dark skin looks great with the colour red in all its boldness, the brighter then better here for skin that will glow when you wear red.

If you have lighter skin then a darker shade of red might be more your thing. Dark reds will emphasise your skin tone without giving you a washed-out look.

Olive skin tones are also complemented beautifully when draped in red.

Matching Hair & Eyes To Red Lingerie Shades


Light blondes should try and avoid bright red lingerie and instead stick to pastel colours. However warm blond colouring resonates with darker shades of red and will give you a stunning appearance. Brunettes and redheads can embrace red lingerie with gusto and will carry the look off just wonderfully.

Brown and hazel eyes suit red nightwear and this colour will make your eyes shout come to me. You can find some shades of red for blue eyes but it’s not the most flattering colour choice here. Green eyes will suit burgundy red and other dark shades.

Types Of Sexy Red Underwear To Consider

If you’re convinced that this popular shade of love is for you, there’s so many different types of sexy underwear to consider. Here’s our handy guide to lingerie that is literally red hot.

Red Underwear Cuts

Stockings and Suspenders

Stockings and suspenders are a winner to any lingerie outfit because they elongate your pins, especially when accompanied with heels. Red stockings will leave you looking smoking hot and are the perfect accessory for many women. Whether you are on the shorter side or perhaps more pear-shaped, wearing red stockings can make you look beautiful and give your body that added X factor.

Red Basques

A red basque looks stunning whether you are a brunette, redhead or blonde so there are no limits when it comes to this red piece of lingerie. Basques are there with the sole purpose of accentuating your womanly curves while giving you an incredibly sexy appearance. Usually consisting of a deep plunge and no straps means your boobs are the centre of attention and set to be a show stopper.


Red Babydolls are a very popular choice when it comes to choosing a sexy item of nightwear. You can purchase them in a range of styles and cuts ranging from understated yet beautiful to barely there and erotic. Bring out your deep brown or hazel eyes in one of the stunning babydoll sets, or show off your blonde hair with a red babydoll to match. Babydolls can be loose-fitting or figure-hugging so your body type will be well catered for either way.


Teddies are a more fitted garment much like a swimming costume and choosing a red teddy will definitely spice up those bedroom antics.  With a typically high cut, teddies will add height to your appearance and being adorned in lace or satin takes the colour red to new levels. Nothing says come and get me quite like a red cupless and Crotchless teddy.


Bodystockings offer full-body coverage and being covered head to toe in red is ultimately very sexy. You can add in some extra naughtiness such as choosing Crotchless which means you don’t need to take it off during those more intimate moments. Wearing red lace which is partially see-through over every inch of your body is incredibly seductive.


You can’t go far wrong in a red chemise and you have the flexibility to go for a more floaty look or choosing a figure tight chemise. The red fabric of the chemise will flatter and accentuate your body leaving your lover not knowing where to look first. Red is a colour full of passion which is sure to bring pleasure to the bedroom.


There is a great choice when it comes to red bodysuits so your only problem will be selecting which is right for you. However, they are flattering and the red colour will showcase your body just perfectly. Take it to the next level by going crotchless, or maybe one with an open front is more your thing. You could match this up with some red accessories too such as stockings or even a red wig.

Red Underwear Fabric Types


You’ll never go wrong with red lace, it’s the most popular fabric as a lingerie choice. And it’s easy to see why with it’s delicate, see-through look offering gorgeous peeks of the body underneath. It feels super soft and lace is such a forgiving fabric – great for those who are not so body confident.


Nothing says seduction quite like satin fabric with it’s luscious, soft touch and the way it shimmers and shines. Red satin will leave you looking and feeling like a Goddess and your lover will bow to your every command. Whether you choose a satin nightie or a satin teddy, your body will look hotter than ever before.

See Through

Red is hot but coupled with see through fabric, the heat is quite frankly off the scale. Just how see-through you want the sexy red lingerie to be is completely your choice. You could, for example, choose a bodystocking in red that is see-through from top to bottom. If you want something a little tamer you could choose a semi see-through red babydoll with mesh in places.
