4 lingerie personality types, and what your underwear choices say about you.

Did you ever buy a sexy little red lace thong – or something similar – just because you thought it was pretty? You completely ignored that little voice in the back of your mind that was whispering “you’ll never wear it – ever.”

You bought it anyway, because maybe you wanted to give your lingerie drawer – and your life – an upgrade. Maybe buying that red thong revealed part of your personality. Maybe it revealed a need for more excitement.

C’mon, dig deep.

I believe that, like heels make you taller, the right bra and underwear can make you more confident. Matching lacy underwear can boost your confidence. It can do so until you’re literally glowing.

Or maybe that’s just your face turning beet red. It’s because you’re embarrassed to be wearing your skimpy little thong, even though no one else can see it.

It may be making you uncomfortable in more ways than one.

If that’s the case, the style just wasn’t right for you – it doesn’t match your lingerie personality.

If you’re anything like me, maybe you never even wear some of the lingerie styles you buy. Maybe that little – and expensive – red thong quickly made its way to the back corner of the lingerie drawer. It was never to be seen again.

We’ve all made fashion mistakes, and probably have the proof hanging in our closets. Underwear is no different – especially for those of us who love to shop for lingerie.

So here’s why you need to know your lingerie personality. There are lots of sexy and pretty bra and panty styles out there. Find the one that’s right for you, by getting to know yourself a little better first.

And then you’ll be shopping for new underwear that won’t ever be banished to the back of your drawer.

What’s a Lingerie Personality?

First, the basics, in case you’re wondering.

If you didn’t know you had a lingerie personality, you do. Every woman does. Even if you stick to buying white cotton briefs – guess what that says about you?

You’re revealing your practical side.

The style choices we make every day – from our hairstyle right down to our undies – says a lot about who we are. So, isn’t it always fun to get to know ourselves a little better?

I enjoy taking quizzes in magazines like Cosmo. These quizzes reveal if I’m a flirty tease or hopeless romantic. This guide to finding your lingerie personality is unique.

I made these questions to ask yourself. I wanted you to get to know your style better. It just comes down to simple likes and dislikes.

Your answers will reveal the lingerie personality type that fits your style best. But I made each lingerie personality to be a shopping persona. They are a guide to know which styles to buy. This way, you can avoid wasting money on the skimpy little things you’ll never wear. (I apologize if my lingerie personalities aren’t as fun – or outrageously ridiculous – as a Cosmo quiz!)

Just remember – there is no “rule” that says you are just one personality type, so read through all the questions. That’s the worst part of those other types of quizzes. I could easily see myself answering each question differently. It would depend on my mood that day. Don’t think anyone is just one type. We all have many sides to our personalities. It’s fun to reveal them.

This guide will help some of you. It will stop you from wasting money on lacy red thongs if you just want a comfy cotton brief. And it will help the reverse too.
