Who could resist a gift of silky, satin-edged lingerie? Gone are the days when modesty decreed that women hang their laundry on the clothes line with their small clothes, their corset covers and lace-trimmed knickers, concealed inside pillow cases.
Today, there are entire clothing stores devoted to women's undergarments. Whether your fancy is for something sheer and sexy, or for a dainty and demure lace ensemble, ever since Madonna wore her "undies" as outer-wear, it seems that almost anything goes. No longer the sole domain of naughty ladies, fancy "frilly-dillies" have become the undergarments of choice for any well-turned out woman.
St. Valentine's Day, paradoxically known for being both the date of a bloody massacre as well as for being one of the most romantic dates on the calendar, is the perfect time to cast off your inhibitions and head off in search of the perfect gift of intimate apparel for that special someone.

These stylish long peignoirs and sets from stylehive.com could be an alluring beginning to an intimate evening.
Though not traditional Valentine's colors, nor any shade of pink, rose, or red, these four elegant gowns in either sensational black lace and tulle, or seductive white silks would be a wonderful addition to your love's lingerie drawer.
Lace has always been considered a romantic fabric.
The delicacy of the loom-work, combined with the softness of the finished fabric creates a soft and dainty yet sophisticated look.
Silk and tulle are natural choices for intimate apparel.
The lush sheen of the silks and delicate cobwebs of tulle make a divine duo, the sheer, gathered layers of the soft netting add a richness and fullness to the finished silky garment.
These beautiful baby doll sets in shades of deep rose or Valentine red are not only lovely to look at they are most delightful to the touch.
Fashioned of 75% Polyester and 25% nylon Charmeuse, these sets are hand wash and drip dry for easy care.
Robe sets also feature a matching thong.
Available in a variety of sizes from small to 3X, the soft fabric of these delightful sets lends itself beautifully to figure-flattering, romantic draping.

Sorry - we can't show you any garter belt sets, but they are available on Amazon
What lingerie collection would be complete without the addition of several lovely garter belt and stocking sets?
Available in regular and plus sizes, these dainty lace and Lycra undergarments would never have appeared on my granny's clothes line, even discreetly shielded inside a modesty-saving pillow case.
If memory serves though, she did have some very beautifully embroidered corset covers.
A delightful black set would be so lovely to wear under just about anything, and just knowing they're there can add a bit of a strut to the most outwardly buttoned-down appearing lady.
A girl can never have too many pretty panties - and that goes for beautiful brassieres as well...and shoes, too, actually, but that's another topic altogether.
Whether they are silk, satin, cotton, or beribboned confections of diaphanous lace, undergarments are as personal a choice as the selection of scent. There are so many from which to choose, and the array of colors and fabrics can be almost bewildering.
Certain styles offer more comfort to various figure types. One of my sisters is a big fan of boy-cut panties, while the other swears by a thong for the no-pantie-line look, though she will occasionally buy bikini style if she likes the fabric.
One of my friends recently discovered a brand of low-rise with stretch lace tops that are so soft and comfortable, and she swears they make her jeans slide on incredibly easily - "as if she had buttered her butt" was the expression she used.

Romance need not be confined to only one day out of the year. Any day can be turned into a special time, whether for a weekend get-away or an intimate evening together.
Try scattering some rose petals on freshly scented sheets. Then turn on some soft music, turn down the lights and let the soft glow of a dozen candles set the mood.
Chocolates and champagne make a wonderful first course to the evening's entertainment.
If time and finances permit, you might consider a tropical getaway.
Nothing creates a romantic atmosphere like sipping a few tall cool ones poolside before retiring to a private cabana for an afternoon tête-a tête...and be sure to pack some dainty new undies for your rendezvous by the beach.
