Teddy lingerie is a type of underwear which covers both the upper body and the crotch in a similar style to one-piece swimming costumes. However, unlike swimming costumes, they are looser in style and some of them open at the crotch. Usually made from sheer fabric teddies are a popular bedroom choice due to the way they enhance a woman’s shape and how flexible they are. You put them on in the same way as you would a swimming costume any many women choose them because they cover up any lumps and bumps you aren’t comfortable with.

What is Teddy Underwear?
Similar to a one-piece swimming costume a teddy covers the top half of the body and the crotch. Flexible and available in many different cuts and designs make it a popular bedroom outfit. It is pulled on in the same way as you would a costume, some have a hook and eye fastening on the back and some are just pulled on. You can get backless ones, crotchless ones and strapless ones.
Teddy lingerie acquired its name through its inventor, a man called Theodore Bare. He was German and later moved to Chicago where he set up a clothing business covering infants, children and ladies clothing. Teddy bear lingerie appeared on the market for the first time in 1913 and it became an overnight sensation.
Do you wear underwear under a teddy?
The simple answer here is to tell you to wear what you are comfortable with. If you are happier with underwear underneath then go for it. (think of yourselves as a beautiful present and each layer needs to be unwrapped – phwoar)! However, it’s not necessary and most women don’t. Teddies can come with cups for breasts support and often they come in a thong cut so you don’t need anything extra as it won’t be as comfortable.
