1. Perhaps the sexiest piece of lingerie imaginable, the corset gives you an enviable shape and boosts your confidence - a winning combination in the bedroom. However, the world of corsets can be bemusing, but there's nothing to fear.

    This guide will tell you everything you need to know, from how to measure yourself to how to put a corset on and everything in between. Remember, with our easy 1 year returns policy you can try as many corsets as you need to in order to find the perfect fit.

    Definitions for basques, corsets and bustiers vary between companies. Anything with lacing down the back or an hourglass shape can be referred to as a corset and this can cause a lot of confusion when you're trying to decide what to buy and how to measure yourself.

    So what is the difference between these garments and how does that change how you wear them?

    Above: Lovehoney's lingerie expert, Sammi Cole, talks you through the difference in fitted lingerie styles in this video.

    Lingerie needs to be stored, washed and dried with extra care and attention to keep it in tip-top condition. Whether it's made of lace, silk or high quality cotton, you'll find your sexy lingerie lasts much longer if you take proper care of it.

    Here at Lovehoney, we want to ensure that you get the best from your lingerie. That's why we've put together this handy guide to keeping your panties sorted and your lingerie looking lovely!

    Whether you're buying for yourself or a lover, shopping for bras can definitely be confusing. Underwired, non-underwired, cupless, peek-a-boo… What does it all mean?

    Figuring out the correct band size and cup is the first step to success, but choosing a style that suits you or your partner is also essential. Just like how not everyone would choose skinny jeans over bootcut, the coverage, cup style and cut make a huge difference to how you feel about your new bra.

    It's also important to keep your bust size in mind while choosing lingerie. Some styles look wonderful on women with cup sizes of A - C, while other cuts are more flattering on a larger bust. Below, we explain the most popular bra styles, and explain what body shape they're best for.

    Looking to buy some sexy new lingerie but not sure where to start? Don't worry! All you have to do is figure out your body shape and we'll give you the best lingerie suggestions which will flatter and complement your body in the best possible way.

    If you're buying lingerie as a gift for your lover and haven't found many clues in her underwear drawer as to the styles and shapes she likes, then it could be just the right time to spark a well-needed overhaul. This guide will help you to choose something that will look stunning on her, ensuring she feels confident and sexy.

    Above: If you're thinking "forget how to use nipple clamps, why would I want to?!" just watch this video. Our resident bondage expert, Jess Wilde, gives you the low-down on all things nippy, including the lesser-known nipplegasm!


     

    Your nipples are two of the most sensitive and reactive parts of your body and it's well worth lavishing some extra attention on them during foreplay and sex.

    A recent study used an MRI scanner to show that stimulation of the nipples arouses the sensory cortex in a woman’s brain and in turn, arouses the genitals. Pretty cool. It’s also thought that approximately 1% of women can achieve an orgasm through nipple stimulation alone.

    If your nipples aren’t receiving the attention they deserve, then investing in a sex toy designed for use on the nipples will help you experiment with different sensations. From gentle nipple suckers to sturdy nipple clamps which give you a firm but pleasant pinch, there are lots of nipple toys on the market. We’re here to guide you through all the options available.
