How to Look Good in Lingerie: Helena Christensen’s Sexiest Tips
Anyone can look good in lingerie. Helena Christensen tells us how to do it!
Anyone can look good in lingerie—and who better to teach us how to do it than model Helena Christensen? At 44, this Danish stunner still has it, and lucky for us, she’s imparting her wisdom to the Internet. In a recent column she wrote for the Telegraph, Helena revealed her best tips and tricks for how to look good in lingerie—no matter what your style is. Read on for all the deets!
1. If it’s not comfortable, don’t wear it.
This is true of pretty much any item of clothing, but it’s ESPECIALLY true when it comes to underthings. Writes Helena, “You never want to feel as if you’re wearing restrictive lingerie; it should just feel nice and give you a good silhouette.” Trying bras on in the shop before you buy them is key.
2. Go for the gold…
…Or red, or blue, or pink, or any other color you can think of. “Many women hold themselves back from colors beyond black and nude as they don’t think they’ll look good on them,” says Helena—but seriously, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Besides, one of life’s little pleasures is knowing that you’ve got a fire engine red bra on and nobody knows it but you.
Speaking of colors…
3. Mix and match!
The days of matching lingerie sets are behind us. Helena finds it “inspiring” to mix and match what you’ve got—and practical, too, since “nothing is ever clean at the same time, anyway.” Having a wardrobe full of separates that can be worn a whole bunch of different ways is liberating, and the same goes for lingerie. Have fun!
4. Have confidence.
Helena likes to go for “sensual” rather than “sexy,” which is why her personal tastes tend towards vintage-inspired lingerie with soft, faded colors and pretty shapes—but whether you like wear-them-everywhere t-shirt bras or racy red lingerie, the key is wearing your picks with confidence. You’ll always look dynamite—no matter what you’ve got on!
