Let’s talk loungewear. Yes, we’ve all been spending a lot of time at home recently, and getting dressed is not top of our priority list these days. So why not (un)dress in style?
If there’s ever a time to turn lingerie into loungewear, it’s now. Read on to find out how to stay home and stay sexy at the same time.
The Lockdown Effect
It’s hardly a surprise that online spending habits have changed with many countries around the globe in lockdown. Demand for small indulgences, such as lingerie, is soaring. Self-care and self-love are both high on people’s agendas, as we look for ways to cheer ourselves up in these trying times.
There is also the rising popularity of ‘lockdown dates’. From at-home cinema set-ups in the garden complete with fairy lights to candlelit meals in the style of your favourite restaurant, couples around the world are getting creative.
We’re looking for ways to ‘dress up’ and make an effort for special nights in (or over a video call) with our partners. It’s a simple way of adding a little spice to otherwise repetitive days in isolation.
However, when you’re lounging around the house all day every day, it can be hard to feel motivated. Whilst your beauty routines and date nights may be getting the love and attention they deserve, getting dressed up everyday can feel pretty pointless.
However, the simple act of putting a little effort into your outfit can do wonders to your mood and productivity levels. The small ‘victory’ of pulling on a matching set or styling your hair can offer some stability and inject some normality back into your day.
Lingerie as loungewear takes this to the next level. It allows you to feel good about yourself, but also (and most importantly) stay comfortable. It’s also the perfect time to try out some new styles and make the most of intimate moments in isolation.
We look into the latest lingerie as loungewear trends below.
Talk about stay at home goals. Kendall shows us exactly why the classic lingerie bodysuit is the perfect loungewear attire. Versatile and comfy, this staple piece is popular for a reason. And the best news? It can be worn as outerwear too, styled with your favourite skinnies and a blazer thrown on top. So that’s your post-isolation night out look sorted too! Win, win.

Give your nights in a serious glow up with a babydoll nightie. From sheer to lace, silky to chiffon, babydolls come in a wide variety of designs and styles. With a supportive bodice and flowing skirt, they’re a flattering lingerie choice for every body type. The perfect look if you want to show a little skin without revealing too much.

The Lounge Set
Co-ords are having their fashion moment; they’re the perfect no-fuss outfit to make you feel like you’ve made a bit of an effort.
So, it’s not surprising the trend has reached underwear. Think athleisure with a sexy twist. Comfort is key here, with high-rise briefs and a matching elasticated bralette. Combined with an oversized shirt or some snug knitwear, this is lingerie loungewear at its cutest.

The Zoom Look
Dressed, but from the waist up. While we won’t exactly recommend video-chatting your boss in this outfit, it’s still the ultimate stay-at-home look. Enjoy having no reason to get dressed, and stay cosy in your favourite sweater paired with a classic silk thong.

The Boxer Short
Finally, why not up your loungewear game with the boxer short? This look is similar to the ‘Zoom’ look above, but with added comfort levels. We don’t think you’ll ever want to get dressed again once you try this look – and we don’t blame you! It’s up to you whether you want to steal your BF’s boxers or go for a sexier lace design, but the boxer short is a look everyone can get on board with!
