Our Top Valentine’s Day Ideas and Lingerie Picks for Everyone, from the Sweetheart to the Risque-Taker

An above-average bottle of Champagne. Seventy-percent-minimum dark chocolate. A ridiculously fancy candle. Some treats are timeless, best savored every so often all year long and filed under “self-care.”

Of course, they happen to be extra decadent when experienced altogether. Often the only time all those stars align is on Valentine’s Day.

Sexy lingerie is one of these things, too. Consider V-Day a perfect excuse to indulge or show off some of the more special pieces you’ve collected.

“This time of year, open-cup bras and crotchless panties become the most popular sexy lingerie styles, and teddies are still important,” says boudoir buyer Krista Molinaro. “The high-neck trend is new, coming over to intimates from ready-to-wear.”

“Lingerie is always a great gift because it’s a present for both partners, the giver knows what he or she likes and, since so much of it is one-size-fits-all, it’s easy to shop for,” Krista adds. Here are some of her hottest recommendations right now:

FOR THE SWEETHEART
This category is a love letter to cute, cheeky, sweet pieces—babydolls, sleepwear, printed thongs, heart-strewn separates, chiffon chemises, lace rompers and sophisticated-sexy stuff—you could confidently rock yourself or give to a girlfriend or sister.

FOR THE HEARTBREAKER
Equal parts sweet and saucy, you can show a little more skin with a low plunge bra, straps, cage-bra detail, garters, sequins and bows…maybe even a bedroom costume.

FOR THE RISQUE-TAKER
