Does the word “lingerie” conjure up images of hard-to-reach garter belts, torturous-looking bodysuits, or ultra-exposed teddies? If so, we’re here to assure you that lingerie for older women — aka the kind that’s comfortable, flattering, and alluring — does exist.

The best lingerie for mature women is not only fun to wear, but is also a great way to put a little passion back into your relationship. According to a 2016 study out of Chapman University, sexually satisfied men and women were more likely than dissatisfied men and women to employ sexy lingerie in their bedroom habits.

Sexy lingerie for older women can also be a great self-esteem booster: Just like a new bra, which according to a 2012 study can“alter the perception of one’s body” and “improve self-confidence,” the right lingerie can give you a shot of self-assurance in the bedroom.

“Many people view lingerie as an important part of foreplay and intimacy,” Adam & Eve sexologist Dr. Jenni Skyler recently told Yahoo. “Whether wearing lingerie makes you feel more sensual, or you choose to wear it for your partner, the act of wearing it and removing it plays an important role for many in the bedroom. I encourage couples to find out if lingerie can be a part of their sexual repertoire.”

If you’re ready to find your perfect match in the lingerie department, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up a selection of negligees, camisoles, panties, and more, that will be both flattering to a more mature body shape and easy and comfortable to put on and wear.

Elastic-free edges keep them from binding or creeping up, and they’re invisible under clothes — no VPL here! (That’s visible panty line, of course.)
