Valentine’s Day comes but once a year, so treat yourself to some romantic clichés with Culture Trip’s guide to the best valentine’s underwear this year.

For Valentine’s Day seduction

Sheer and sexily understated, no one wants to go with the obvious all-red set on the 14th. Pair lace and silk for a more sensitive and original combination. We love New Zealand-based brand Lonely who offer beautiful pieces for all sizes. Alternatively try independent Canadian brand Fortnight who manufacture all of their pieces in-house.

Long-term relationship Valentine’s Day lingerie

Your partner has already seen pretty much everything: your anti-morning breath routine, the way you sellotape-wax your moustache and the extra-large safety pin you used to hold your trousers together when the zip broke. As such, it’s time to seriously up your game with a lively contraption that has the capacity to amuse, bemuse and seduce in equal measure.

‘Looking to get multiple use out of this’ lingerie

Remember when Rachel in Friends tried to seduce ‘Josh-u-ah’in a slip dress and then his parents came home so she had to wear it to dinner? That’s the kind of versatile style we like here at Culture Trip HQ, and you should embrace it too.

For the ‘you never know’ optimist

Well, hey, you don’t have date right now, but you never know, right? Love is just around the corner, and until midnight of the 14th it is still potentially looking for you (!). Dress to impress, just in case.

Valentine’s Day lingerie for the woman who would rather eat her own thumb than own Valentine’s Day lingerie

We know, we know: Valentine’s Day is a social construct designed by capitalist corporations to monetise abstract notions of sex and love. If you’re looking for a luxurious twist on your nightwear though, these are our suggestions.
