With Valentine's day right around the corner, most retailers are filling their window and advertisements with lingerie to entice the special, romantic day. As wedding season is coming into bloom, now is a time for bridal showers; and at bridal showers, lingerie is a "must give" gift.
In today's world, lingerie does not just stop with a night gown. There are many different styles to choose from. A new company, BHLDN (owned by Anthropology) offers selection. From undergarments, to camisoles to robes. There are only two locations in the US, we will have to do our shopping online. Looking to go shopping locally, check out A Beautiful Touch in Westmont, NJ. As a total wedding accessory boutique, they offer a large selection of lingerie for your wedding night and beyond. Many large retails such as David's Bridal and Macy's also offer great selections of bridal lingerie.

Want to take your lingerie buying a step further and surprise your fiance? Check out "Get Shot Naked". Stationed in Bear, Delaware, Natalie Kita, boudoir and glamour photographer, came into this business a little over five years ago. Prior to that she was model, make-up artist and spent some time in the wedding industry. With her business, clients are photographed in lingerie complete with a make-over before the shoot. According to Natalie, the most popular package offered is the "Diva"; "but once people see just a few of their images on the back of the camera during a shoot, they usually end up upgrading to the Goddess package. Both packages include a makeover, photo shoot, in-person viewing premier, and an album of fully-retouched images, the differences are in the number of images and the length of the shoot (as well as # of set-ups and outfit changes in the shoot)." Click here to view all of the packages offered. Get Shot Naked attracts clients from all over the states, Natalie has even had some California clients plan their vacations to the east coast so they can plan a photo shoot.
Boudoir (sexy lingerie) photos are a popular grooms gift. Natalie also mentioned she has a lot of "first anniversary presents" (the traditional first year gift is paper, so photos fit in nicely with this.)
There are many men who are more interested in what is under the lingerie than what it actually looks like, but buying lingerie is more about making you (the woman) feel special and beautiful and it is for your man. I posted a sexy images on Face Book with a question, what is your spending limit for lingerie. Many men simply "liked" the image and woman stated thay wanted to be comfortable and feel sexy. It does matter!
