The Look of Love: Valentine’s Day Lingerie

Most holidays are a major production involving lots of people, planning and prepping. Not Valentine’s Day. It’s meant to be an intimate, low-key affair that doesn’t require a whole lot more than a card written from the heart. Even going “all out” doesn’t really take much effort: maybe you add fresh flowers, a dinner reservation or—this year’s version of getting all dressed up—lingerie and sleepwear.

Bare Necessities is here to help with that last bit. Our buyers have put together the greatest Valentine’s Day gift guide, full of our top-rated, prettiest and most enticing intimates ranging from mild to wild, that will ensure you’ve got Valentine’s Day 2021 handled.

“To thine own self, be true” starts with what you’re wearing. So finish bingewatching Bridgerton and set your own bodice-ripping tone by letting your body do the talking in some Valentine’s Day lingerie…


P.J. Salvage Sealed Kiss

There’s something in this category for absolutely everyone, from cozy-cute lip-print pajamas to sophisticated nightgowns, chic and sleek satin separates to coquettish teddies—all of which you can wear not just on V-Day but basically any night of the year.

If you want to acknowledge the day without going all in, or extra-spicy isn’t your style, you’ll find yourself right at home in:


Oh Là Là Chéri Aria Teddy

Set hearts aflutter and pulses racing in a pick from this list, any of which would send a clear message that you’re in an amorous state of mind while still leaving something to the imagination. In these sultry statement-makers, you won’t be turned down; you will leave a long-lasting mental snapshot.

Go red, go black, or go refreshingly off-script in a jewel tone:


Seven ‘Til Midnight Satin Bow Set

If you’re looking forward to pushing the boundaries on February 14th, forget about subtlety; you’ve got to dress the part. Shake up your world in seriously strappy lingerie, sheer lace, artfully placed bows, ties that gently bind and cutouts that leave no doubt anything goes tonight.

For bedroom eyes only:
