Valentine’s Day lingerie can be expensive. The lingerie companies know you’re passionate about looking good for your lover on February 14th, but they want you to pay handsomely to make him happy. Don’t fall for their sly trap. There are plenty of skimpy outfits you can buy for under $20. Imagine that! He’s happy, you’re happy, and your checkbook escapes unscathed. If you’re worried being frugal will mean you have to settle for less, calm down. The $20 lingerie I’m talking about is quality underwear you can be proud of. Spice up your Valentine’s Day with these trendy, sexy fashion pieces.
HEIDI CHIFFON LACE TRIM SHEER TEDDY from BOOHOO
For $14, you can have this silky soft pink slip. The Boohoo description of this chiffon lace product advertises it as sleepwear, but don’t let that fool you. Your partner won’t be thinking about sleeping when he sees you in this. The slip is built to tease rather than reveal, making it more versatile than some lingerie. This can be a comfy nightgown or a playful outfit. You get to choose!
EMMA LACE TRIANGLE IN VINTAGE PINK from ASOS
This is a two-piece outfit with easy-to-use buckles and subtle lace florals. It’s gentle, giving off a vintage vibe without feeling dull or old-fashioned. If you have bronze skin, the pink tint will blend in perfectly. ASOS has a knack for selling ultra-trendy pieces at reasonable prices. You can nab the panties from this outfit for $15. The bra goes over our price limit at $31, but if you think you’ll use it, go for the full ensemble. It’s still under $50, which is better than you’ll do in most places.
BLACK ROSE 2-PIECE CHEMISE PLUS-SIZE LINGERIE from AMI CLUBWEAR
It’s practically a full-fledged skirt and you can have it for $13.50. That’s a bargain! This top has everything you need for your Valentine’s Day evening. It’s a tease, it’s easy to wear, and you can even wear it comfortably around the house. If cooking dinner nude is a little too much for you, cook dinner in this. Hidden under the top but still part of the deal is a matching G-string. Does it get much better than this?
AERIE LONGLINE TRIANGLE BRALETTE from AMERICAN EAGLE
A bralette is a bra that thinks it’s a corset. This probably isn’t the most comfortable piece to wear on Valentine’s Day, but it sure is pretty. The fact that you can get all that lacework for $15 is genuinely exciting. Wear this if you like making an entrance. It might not be easy to take off, but it’s nice to feel pretty in the bedroom on February 14th.
PASTEASE PASTIES HOLOGRAM CROSSES from NASTY GAL
If you want to try on something new for Valentine’s Day, this is the way to do it. These $10 crosses are self-adhesive. Just peel off the back and stick them on for a very minimal Valentine’s look. You’re not going to be able to re-use these, so make sure it’s really the route you want to go before making the investment. Yet, if your partner like this sort of thing or has a fetish for holographic stuff, maybe you’ve hit the mother-load.
INTIMATES by FOREVER 21
The intimates line by Forever 21 has dozens of sexy lingerie options under $20. They come in all different styles too. You can find bodysuits, bras, panties, and bralettes on this site in both solid silk colors and lacy patterns. It’s tempting to stop this list here because the options are so impressive. I mean, some of these pieces only cost $8!
MICROFIBER THONG from H&M
For $4, you could be the owner of this decorative thong. It’s a pretty traditional piece with a nice balance of support and finesse. If your lover likes the tried and true, these will serve you well. You can get the lined gusset in white if you like it simple or red to add some extra pop.
TRIPLE STRAP SUSPENDER from ASOS
If you want to make him work a little, here’s an elaborate way to do it. This triple-strap piece looks incredibly sexy and it appears more complicated to unfasten than it is. In these, you can draw out your Valentine’s Day fun and feel sexy while you do it. Best of all, it will only cost you $20.
Time to stop lamenting the price of lingerie, ladies. If this is the kind of surprise you want to plan for your romantic day, there are plenty of reasonable options. Time to get shopping!
