Babydoll lingerie is an elegant and popular choice of sexy women's underwear for ladies of all shapes and sizes. The style is great for emphasising the bust line, hiding the tummy and depending on the length of the particular lingerie item, the tops of the thighs can also be covered. This can be a very flattering look and is why it is such a popular piece of women's lingerie, in particular the plus size babydoll lingerie catering for the fuller figure lady. At the same time as being extremely sexy, it is also a rather innocent looking garment and certainly has an innocent name!

Ultimately, the babydoll is sleepwear or a nightie, but these days it is used for much more than this, wearing babydoll lingerie can be an excellent romantic way to stir up a little fun in your love life!

The style, not to mention the intended purpose for women's babydoll lingerie has evolved massively since it's drapey bed wear looks from the 30's and 40's. Throughout it's travels, the name 'babydoll' has been utilised in not only lingerie but also clothing, suggesting child-like playful qualities which have proven to be quite intriguing and very cute amongst wearers and onlookers alike. In the 1950's, a film with the 'Babydoll' title sent this sexy style into a tail-spin adding sex appeal and liberation just in time for the free love era of the 60's and 70's.

This beautiful style of women's lingerie continues to dominate preferences in the conservative underwear genre as well as the sexy and erotic lingerie world, and often surpasses the expectations of babydoll seeking shoppers with its ongoing changes, uses and of course versatility.

The babydoll comes in many different lengths, sub-styles, and looks but overall the idea is that it should cover the bust area snuggly in either a tank top style shoulder strap arrangement and bust area, or in a bra style top, or halter style. All babydoll lingerie products have the same theme of flaring immediately below the bustline - what differs is the length. The modern babydoll can be open in the front exposing the stomach, open in the back, closed front and back, long to the thighs, or even short so that it is not really much more than a ruffle under the bust! On top of this, you will find that the interpretations of babydolls from lingerie store to lingerie store sometimes also include other styles of lingerie that have no names of their own or fit just outside of a standard definition of the babydoll lingerie and so has been included in the category.

Here at Express My Lingerie, we have tried to stay as true to the original understanding of this sexy and cute  women's lingerie style as possible.

The babydoll is usually made from either see-through materials like chiffon, mesh, silk and nylon or satins and lycras are often also used. They come in many different patterns and colours, such as pastels, leopard print, plain black, hot pink, polka dots, even fire engine red. This appealing intimate adult's lingerie can be decorated with feathers, bows, lace, faux fur, ruffles and more. It, like a lot of today's  modern lingerie, can range from elegant and classy to cheeky and erotic, and anything in between. The babydoll style is appealing for many reasons, including the often see through fabrics that are used, and how little fabric there actually is in the garment!

Babydoll lingerie often comes in sets, including the babydoll nightgown and matching panties. For a really sexy look, add a pair of thigh high stay up stockings or a garter belt and stockings, dressed like this you'll feel and look like a confident and sexy woman.
