Gemini journalist Regina Brett advises, “Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.”
Indeed, every day and any day can become an occasion if you’re wearing the right underthings. Lingerie is the final frontier between suggestive and full frontal, the erotic liminal between imagination and experience, and an art form that can and should be worn and enjoyed by all.
National Lingerie Day is observed on April 25, and appropriately enough, it falls in the nude is natural heart of look good, feel good Taurus season.You can celebrate by buying yourself a ridiculously sexy piece of lingerie and/or staging your own boudoir themed photo shoot. Take it off, get it on and celebrate the simple joy of being a warm blooded and wholly embodied animal.
To help you narrow down your choices, we’ve selected a piece of lingerie in line with each and every zodiac sign.
Read on to learn more and make sure to read (and buy) for your sun, moon and Venus signs respectively.
Victoria’s Secret Floral Embroidery Strappy Crotchless Teddy
The average Aries is not one to beat around the bush, or cover it, making this red hot crotchless teddy the very epitome of cardinal fire sign energy. Nothing subtle and certainly not for the faint of heart. Add to the mix that this shade of red is the power color for Aries and the official hue of sports cars and chili peppers.
Fleur du Mal So Money Mini Slip
Taurus rules the second house of values and possessions, wealth and worth. Bull folk prefer the finer things in life; flattering light, soft fabrics, eating well, feeling rich and looking good. This slip from Fleur de Mal pays appropriate homage. The brand’s name is an ode to Charles Baudelaire’s seminal work of poetry and though an Aries by birth, I deem the dandy Baudelaire an honorary Taurus, not least of all because he squandered the bulk of his inheritance on velvet clothing.
For Love and Lemons Sunset Butterfly Teddy
Gemini is the hyper verbal social butterfly of the zodiac, ever flitting between conversations, mixed company and commitments. This butterfly inspired pastel piece by For Love and Lemons, a brand started by two best friends, honors the breezy energy of mutable air with plenty of bare skin and useless buttons.
Intimissimi Fearless Femininity Tulle and Lace Babydoll
Cancer is ruled by the moon, the lunar home of the divine feminine and this lace babydoll is inspired by the unabashed celebration of that archetype. This number has a light bondage/harness inspired, moonlit, bridal feeling to it that these committal kinksters can really appreciate.
Dolls Kill Invest In Yourself Lingerie Set
Represented by the mane shaking, prey eating lion, Leos are fierce and proud. In refusing to dull their shine they give the rest of us permission to stand tall, wear animal print and never back down or play back up to anyone or anything. This body stocking set comes complete with gloves (theatrical Leos love an accessory) and the item title, “Invest In Yourself” is a lion’s mantra ever I’ve heard one.
Savage X Fenty Shadowplay Lace Teddy
As mutable earth, Virgos are aces at making things grow, from tulip bulbs and root vegetables to emotional maturity. This beautiful bodysuit calls to mind autumn moss, cut grass, farmer’s markets and wood nymph role play, all things that get Virgos hot and bothered.
La Perla Lace Bodysuit in Onyx
Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, luxury, seduction, earthly delights, sugar babies and savings accounts. In kind, this stunning bodysuit by La Perla is “meticulously crafted from lace that creates a beautiful trail of winding florals across the skin.” Looking rich and reading like a poem? A power combo Libra will appreciate.
Thistle and Spire Medusa Bodysuit
Scorpio rules the eight house of sex, death and transformation. Their symbol is of course, the stinger at the ready scorpion but the snake, who habitually sheds skins and lives between the terrestrial and the subterranean is also an apt animal. This bodysuit by unabashedly goth brand Thistle and Spire is also an homage to mythical Medusa who, like the average Scorpio, dealt in withering death stares.

Sagittarius folk are shiny penny optimists that love to party. At their best, they are something like the human equivalent of a disco ball. This corset from Agent Provocateur perfectly channels that glow stick necklace, dancing off the dust at sunrise, making out with strangers in a parking lot energy.
Belle-et-BonBon Limited Edition Swarovski Crystal Black Bisoux Bodysuit
Capricorns like control, capital gains and luxury items that are built to last and inspire financial insecurity in others. This limited edition number cooly proclaims, ‘you can look but you probably can’t afford me.’ It’s the Maybach of undergarments, the caviar of lingerie. Top dollar for the always topping sea goats.
Skimms Moto Contour Mock Neck
Aquarius folk can’t help but stand apart from the crowd. This bodysuit from Skimms marries the energy of the two planets that govern the sign, the zipped up, turtleneck structure of Saturn and the a– out, let’s have a sex party on a space ship while the world burns vibe of Uranus.
Savage X Fenty Psychedelic Vinyl Slip
Pisces are dreamy and prefer their kink pastel with top notes of bubble guns, MDMA and shiny things, making the Psychedelic Vinyl Slip from Savage X Fenty a company helmed by fellow Pisces Rihanna, a perfect pick. Bonus: this piece easily transitions from night on the town to getting down.
