Valentine’s Day is always the perfect excuse to treat yourself or someone special to sexy new lingerie. Besides a beautiful bouquet of roses and a non-negotiable box of chocolates, there’s nothing like a little bit of lace as a romantic gift, whether naughty or nice. Plus, lingerie styles are are trending outside of the bedroom, so whether you’re showering yourself in self-love or shopping for a wife or girlfriend that has a keen eye for style, these adorable Valentine’s Day lingerie pieces double as wardrobe staples.

From silky slip dresses to trendy corset tops, lingerie goes a long way for comfortable styling year-round, and with so many runway trends surrounding airy fabrics and wine-colored lace, there’s boundless inspiration for day to night. The nearly-naked sheer trend continues to flow as angelic frocks across the runways of Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Prada, and Sportmax for spring, while understated bras tops and slips shape silhouettes from Gucci to Versace, Valentino, and Schiaparelli. Major color trends of 2024 happen to play well for Valentine’s day too, whether in rich reds seen on the runways and red carpets, creamy “quiet luxury” beige and eggshell hues, or sweet “peach fuzz” pinks, à la Pantone’s Color of the Year.

However, the true sign of the best lingerie lies is in support and comfort — where it not only feels exceptionally flattering and empowering, but also feels so good on your skin that you’re hesitant to take it off. Think: luxuriously soft cashmere pajamas and effortlessly sexy silk robes. Or, oversized button-down shirt dresses, which were spotlit on the Courrèges Spring 2023 and Louis Vuitton Spring 2024 runways, or the raging hot pants trend from Tom Ford and Miu Miu that allow freshly lotioned legs to shine (to which, is an amazing feeling against luxury bedding sets come nightfall).

“A major lingerie trend I’m seeing is fancier loungewear,” says Cora Harrington, lingerie expert and founder of The Lingerie Addict. “Each year, people are investing in nicer loungewear. Companies are meeting this need with more transitional pieces that can double as outerwear and loungewear with fun prints and interesting colors.” Harrington also notes that more traditional lace and floral lingerie is getting an update, too. “I’m seeing brands invest in pieces with highly tactile and unusual embroideries — snakes instead of flowers, for example.” Dolce & Gabanna, Victoria Beckham, Dion Lee remind us that racey lace is always in style, of course, whether in lifting balconette bras, leggy stockings, or elegant lace frocks.

With so many lingerie styles to choose from, “what matters most is feeling confident,” Harrington says. “For example, I love the hi-cut leg, but others may find it uncomfortable. Instead, I encourage people to splurge on something special within their budget — to look for that dream piece that pushes the envelope but still makes them feel their best. Whether that’s a T-shirt bra, a nightgown, a corset, or a luxurious bathrobe, what matters at the end of the day is that you love it.”

Below, show the best Valentine’s Day lingerie to make her — or yourself — feel like the ultimate present.

What testers say: “LOVE! Bought it in black last year and just got the light blue one on sale. It is stunning. The back zipper makes it edgy and super easy to put on and take off. The cups are lined and fully opaque, so the bustier can function as either a sophisticated top or lingerie. The straps are adjustable and detachable which is also great because you can create different looks. It is good for petites and very comfortable. I totally recommend it!”
