Astrology is trending hard, both in lingerie styles and in social phenomenon. If you’re looking to mix up your lingerie wardrobe but aren’t sure where to start, why not look to the stars? There’s a lingerie style perfect for every astrological sign, and it might be completely different from what you expect.
As a disclaimer, I’m not an astrologer, but I am a lingerie expert. I’m also a Sagittarius who thinks she knows everything, so you’re welcome in advance! Here are the lingerie styles you should try out, based on your zodiac sign. (P.S. - all of the original watercolor illustrations here are available for purchase on Etsy.)
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Determined, ambitious, and practical, the ideal lingerie for a Capricorn is as hard-working as it is beautiful. Therefore, a carefully-crafted corset is the perfect purchase. Whether you try a waist-cinching waspie or a gartered over-bust corset, make sure it’s properly fitted to satisfy your practical nature.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Aquarians are the free spirit of the zodiac, and their lingerie reflects that. Express yourself with crystals, chains, feathers, bold colors, and other outlandish embellishments. And since social justice and other humanitarian issues are important to you, shopping with ethically-made indie brands might be on your to-do list.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
These compassionate, sensitive dreamers might be drawn to lingerie that’s as gentle and ethereal as they are. Look for sheer layers and soft ruffles in fabrics like cotton voile and silk chiffon, along with romantic shapes like side-tie knickers and low-back slips.
Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19)
Individuals born under this fire sign are bold, bossy, and energetic, and their lingerie can be equally assertive. Pieces that are structured but still in-your-face sexy, like a thong bodysuit in a bold shade of red or a high-waist knicker with a quarter cup bra, are always good bets.
Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)
Two of the most important things to a Taurus and enjoying the finer things in life, and snuggling up at home. What better way to satisfy both of those needs than beautiful silk loungewear? Pair a gorgeous printed satin robe with a matching bralette and knicker set for a fabulously fancy nesting ensemble.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun. 20)
With their dynamic, clever energy and a personality full of peaks and valleys, Gemini might be the sign most likely to wear the most extravagant items that cover the least amount of skin. Match some rhinestone-covered pasties to a pair of statement panties, then add a sheer feathered robe for a lingerie set that feels the most free and reflects your quick-witted personality.
Cancer (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22)
Like their namesake animal, the crabs of the zodiac are soft and squishy on the inside. Reflect your nurturing, sentimental nature with something nostalgic. A full-coverage bra with a pointed silhouette is perfect beneath a dreamy, vintage-inspired negligee.
Leo (Jul. 23 – Aug. 22)
Leos wear their hearts on their sleeves—and maybe their nipples. Revel in the spotlight with a pair of tasseled pasties and some matching statement lingerie in a bold color. Add a dramatic headpiece to pull everything together without covering yourself up.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Nothing is out of place when a Virgo puts on their lingerie. Your attention to detail means everything is perfectly matched, right down to the design of the lace on your stockings. Look for brands that create full ensembles, from head to literal toe, as well as lingerie in natural fibers for effortless comfort all day.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
People born under this sign feel best when everything in their lives is harmonious, and hopefully a little luxe, too. Fill your boudoir with matching sets from luxury brands and you can’t go wrong. Plus, Libra is ruled by Venus, which is the perfect excuse to decorate yourself in romantic florals and lace.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Known for their intensity, Scorpios are often magnetic and love being in control. Invest in unconventional pieces that can be worn as outerwear, like latex dresses or bold bodysuits, or try revealing leather styles with unique details to capture hearts in an instant.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
These worldly adventurers love to expand their horizons and gain knowledge of the world through travel. Look for easy-to-wear lingerie like sport-inspired bralettes and seamless knickers, with details that are as colorful and varied as your vacations.
