There’s no doubt that long term relationships offer plenty of benefits but the one thing that tends to fade with time is that initial spark of excitement when you first started dating. Still, it isn’t that difficult to introduce more romance back into your life. For example, simply changing up your bedtime wardrobe is such an effective way to make things more -wink- interesting. Here’s how you can bring sexy back to your private life.
|: Keep it subtle|
Those who are just starting to get back in the game may feel self conscious initially, so keep it simple if you’re feeling shy. Ditch your oversized t-shirt and sweatpants for silk intimates, a sensual fabric that will immediately heighten the senses. This Stella McCartney Clara Whispering Robe is a sweet yet sexy cover-up to wear over a pretty slip or chemise - or you can even wear your robe on it’s own, with nothing underneath.
Or put on an accessory such as hold up stockings or even stockings with suspenders. They will instantly vamp up your look and the thrill of taking them off is sure to get temperatures rising. Hint: Just don’t forget to put on your panties over your suspenders for easier… access.

Take it to the next level with slightly more risque intimates like figure-flattering corsets and bodysuits such as the L’agent by AP Idalia Playsuit or Stella McCartney’s Sophie Surprising Bodysuit. You can even wear these sexy pieces out on a hot date (refer to our blog for more outfit inspo) to build anticipation through the night. Plus, we like how many bodysuits are designed with snap button openings for maximum convenience.
Alternatively, amp up the sex appeal with suggestive intimates such as cut out bras. Avec Amour’s carefully curated selection include the Bluebella Emerson, Nova or Lascivious Kitty which cover up your modesty while showing off a little more skin where it matters.
There’s also Bracli’s famous Pearl Thong which elevates the classic thong to a whole new level of seduction.

When you are ready to go all out, luxury lingerie brand Bordelle has everything you need from open, cupless bras to eye popping ouverts and provocative harnesses. Let your imagination run wild in these sexy little things that are made with quality materials such as customised satin bands and 24 carat gold plated hardware.

Of course, don’t underestimate the power of daring bedroom toys such as handcuffs, crops and whips. We’ll let you decide how you’d like to use them, but here’s a helpful hint - don’t forget to agree on a safe word so you can experiment while still keeping within your limits.
