Benefits of Wearing Lingerie: It is Valuable for More Reasons Than You Think

Wearing lingerie, is often something that is looked at as something beneficial for one’s partner. But today we are going to look at how it can be your secret weapon that you carry around in your back pocket. Even better, under your shirt. While we won’t take away from the fun and flirty role lingerie can play in the bedroom, we want to shed a new light on it today. One where the benefits are for you and how wearing it makes YOU feel.

We want to look at the list of reasons why wearing lingerie can be a powerful tool for you in your everyday life and not just something worn on special occasions.

Boosting Self-Confidence

Wearing lingerie can significantly boost self-confidence. The intricate lace, luxurious fabrics, and flattering designs are crafted to accentuate the wearer’s natural curves, creating a sense of confidence and self-assurance. Even just knowing that you are wearing lingerie can make you feel a little extra fancy. If you are anything like us here at BraSpace, you’ve definitely had that extra pep in your step from simply wearing your favorite pair of underwear.

Lingerie can also be a form of self-expression, allowing individuals to showcase their personal style and preferences. Wearing lingerie doesn’t always mean wearing something pink and frilly. Maybe black and red are more your vibe. Or bright teal with neon pink flowers. Bright yellow polka dots anyone? Bottom line is, if you feel good in it, that’s what you should be wearing.

Body Positivity

Hear us loud and clear on this one ladies, lingerie is NOT only for women of a certain size. Just because you don’t see someone your size walking the Victoria’s Secret runway does not mean that you are excluded from all of the fun that comes with wearing something a little more fun under your clothes.

Lingerie celebrates bodies of all shapes and sizes, and is sold in a variety of stores, both online and in person. And yes, these include plus size stores such as Torrid and Lane Bryant. The inclusive nature of the lingerie industry has evolved to cater to a diverse range of body types, challenging traditional beauty standards. Embracing your body through the choice of lingerie can lead to increased body confidence and a more positive relationship with yourself.

Empowerment Through Wearing Lingerie

A common misconception is that wearing lingerie is very uncomfortable and is solely for your partner. But what if I told you there is lingerie that is comfortable to wear, yes there are even supportive options, that leave you feeling physically comfortable, which leads to a sense of empowerment that makes you feel that you can take on the world.

It has been proven over and over again that when we FEEL good about ourselves we interact differently with the world. That when we feel unstoppable we require people treat us better, produce better work, and smile more. While of course we never will tell you that a bra will make all of that happen by itself, we can speak from experience when saying there is something magical that happens when you feel good about yourself.


As a whole, the benefits of wearing lingerie extend far beyond the surface, encompassing elements of self-confidence, self-expression, body positivity, and empowerment. Wearing lingerie isn’t just for your partner to enjoy, it can be for you to! Whether it is a bra that are the colors of your favorite football team, or undies that have a little red bow on the hip, find something that makes you feel like the strongest and best version of yourself. And once you do, you’ll get to walk around with a little secret boost of confidence that only you know about.
