We’ve all seen that scene in a movie or show were the glamorous female actress makes her way out of her room in what must be the sexiest and yet tamest lingerie known to man. It drapes down her body neither clinging nor fleeing from her, and yet, it manages to highlight how beautiful she looks while also managing to make her look like she is not trying.
Well, that’s the gift of baby dolls for you. Babydoll lingerie is described as a dress with an empire cut and a skirt that stops above the knee. Credited to designer Sylvia Pedlar who created them during world war two, opting for a nightgown that required less material than was the norm at the time. Initially designed as a nightdress, its appeal as one of the more daintier seductive options compared to other one-piece lingerie that was equally making an appearance at the time, found its intent shifting towards the turn of the decade and now is classified as both nightwear and kinky lingerie
Overtime like its one-piece counterpart, the teddy lingerie, Babydolls took on a life of their own as designers began to explore with different kinds of materials and more provocative styles. This, however, hasn’t changed the core outline of what is classified as a babydoll. Since its popularization in the late 40’s, babydolls remain a marker of glamour fashion and sultry appeal. Which is why it’s a great addition for when next you want to buy sexy lingerie.
A few great styles to consider are the conventional top cotton and skirt lace, the full lace, or even the silk and or latex baby dolls. If looking for a more erotic design, consider a sheer lace option with a short skirt. When going for a more neutral or lighter aesthetic consider the color choice, light blues like baby and turquoise or lighter pinks like peach and coral are great for a less erotic look.
