Baby doll nighties are quite different from teddy nighties, as these are designed more like lingerie with loose skirts falling from bust to mid thigh. The upper section of this garment from bust to waist is usually trimmed with lace, ruffles, bows or fur and it is held up with spaghetti straps or thin lace. A Teddy nightie is designed like a bodysuit and is loose and comfortable. It is generally made of sheer fabrics like chiffon, silk or nylon and can be designed to slip off the shoulder for a more seductive look.
Why Babydoll Negligee?
The term “baby doll” for this garment became popular after it was worn by Carroll Baker in the 1956 movie “Baby Doll”. This garment is short and sleeveless and is sometimes available with matching undergarments as a set. Babydoll lingerie is more suited for romantic activities as it is more contemporary and is trimmed with lace, satin, ruffles and can is typically made of sheer fabrics like silk, nylon and chiffon. These are made out of solid fabrics to cover up the torso region and are also available in sheer lace and see through materials like chiffon and netting.
Why Teddy Lingerie ?
Teddy design combines both camisole and panty into a single garment and is commonly used for both nightwear and swimwear. It can either have spaghetti straps or no straps at all and is held together with eyehole ties or hooks at the back and near the waist. Teddy lingerie is available in all types of material like lace, nylon and even leather with diamante embellishments. Teddy is a more popular choice than baby doll for women as it covers more and can also be visually appealing depending on the type of design selected and your body type.
Teddy lingerie has to be of the right fit to make you look attractive, since a tight one will create bulges, while a loose one will make you look visibly fat. Teddies come in all kinds of shapes like babydoll, bareback, bodystocking, bustier and corset. While baby doll types are ideal for women with pear and apple shaped bodies, the backless and bustier types are for slim women, and corsets are popular among women of all shapes and sizes.
If worn with a bit of thought and sense of adventure, both types of lingerie can make you look sexy and appealing. While some women wear it to please their husbands or boyfriends, others wear it to feel attractive all the time.
