Since we are little we become familiar with the concept of “underwear”, but it is not until we are more mature that we know the word “lingerie”.
By mistake, we often use these terms as synonyms, but the truth is that they have a great difference between them: in the material, the composition and, most importantly, the color. Here we tell you what the color of your lingerie says about you.
What is lingerie and how is lingerie different from underwear?
Lingerie and underwear have a mission: to cover our private parts. The difference lies in how they do it. The underwear does it in a functional way, while the goal of the second is to do it in a special way.
Lingerie is made up of delicate garments that show sensuality, which is why they are made with fabrics such as lace, tulle or transparencies. Given their particularity, they are not used on a daily basis (as underwear is), but on special occasions.
On the contrary, underwear has a mainly hygienic function and not so much an aesthetic one, which is why it is made with resistant materials such as cotton or lycra, which guarantee the durability of the garments.
Does the color of your lingerie define you?
When we want to renew our wardrobe, our eyes are mainly focused on the color of the garments, and within the chromatic range, we prefer some colors over others, do you know why? Because it seems that the color we choose says a lot about us.
Not only in terms of our tastes and preferences, but also about our personality and values, our character or our state of mind.
When it comes to lingerie, some colors are sexier than others. Do you want to know what the secret of each color is?
White lingerie, the color of purity
White is one of the most accepted colors in the world, with a symbolism common to all cultures. The white color represents purity, transmits peace and calm, elements that are sought by those who opt for white lingerie.
People who choose this color are looking for a calm and leisurely lifestyle. Although it seems like a very simple color, in lingerie it is considered elegant and refined, which is why it is the color of bridal lingerie. In combination with transparencies and lace, it can be really sexy and delicate.
Pink and fuchsia lingerie: say goodbye to innocence
Pink and fuscia are very similar colors, with shared characteristics. Fuscia is related to feminine coquetry and is worn by daring and modern women who want to stand out.
For its part, pink is associated with childhood and innocence, but in lingerie it is very flirty and playful.
Black lingerie, a basic in your wardrobe!

Red lingerie, for passionate women
If only because of the Spanish tradition of wearing red underwear on New Year's, surely you have the occasional outfit of this color in your wardrobe.

As with black lingerie, red lingerie is a wardrobe staple for any woman.
Blue lingerie: do you dare?
Blue symbolizes two of the most immense and incomprehensible elements in the world: the sky and the sea. It is a very discreet color, but also very comforting.
As for blue lingerie, you don't have to choose basic designs, as it combines perfectly with lace and transparencies, transmitting security and elegance.
Green lingerie, ideal for all women
Along with blue, green is the other basic color that conveys great emotions. Green symbolizes energy and positivity.

Lingerie in shades of lavender and violet, synonymous with sensuality

This color symbolizes joy and vitality, and is perfect for brown and tanned skin, as it will make your skin stand out even more.
Dare with prints
