Sex appeal. For some people, it oozes out of them naturally. And funny enough, their looks have nothing to do with it. They just have it.
But for the rest of us, we may not exactly “have it.” But harnessing this intangible quality isn’t totally impossible. In fact, there are a few simple ways to boost your sex appeal without feeling like you’re forcing it.
Whether you’re trying to steam things up between you and your partner, or impress a date, here are 7 ways to boost your sex appeal almost naturally.
1. Keep up the eye contact
A single look holds an incredible amount of power. When people say, “it was love at first sight,” it wasn’t because of a physical attraction. It was something far bigger. Something impossible to touch.
Sometimes you can say everything you want with a single look.
Maintain strong eye contact in conversation to show you’re not just interested in what the other person is saying, but that you’re interested in them. And if that eye contact is reciprocated, your work here is done.
2. Flaunt your figure
We know not everyone’s on board with showing off their bodies, but hear us out — you don’t need to wear skin-tight jeans, corsets, or push-up bras to flaunt what you got.
Instead, wear figure-flattering pieces below your clothing to accentuate your unique shape.
Our go-to? A soft, body-hugging lace bodysuit that supports your best assets in all the right ways. And if you’re feeling bold, make this sultry layer the main event.
3. Wear your favorite perfume
If our olfactory sensors tell us anything, it’s that smell holds serious significance. Have you ever smelled your favorite meal and were instantly taken back to the exact moment you took that first bite?
If something smells divine, we’ll remember it for almost a lifetime. And if you’re trying to create a little more sex appeal, your favorite perfume should do the trick — both for you, and your partner.
4. Dress to kill
When we choose what to wear, we’re not just picking out an outfit. We’re choosing how we want to express ourselves. So if you’re trying to amp up the sex appeal, dress accordingly.
Wear what makes you feel your sexiest. Choose accessories that bring the right amount of drama. But most importantly, make sure you’re comfortable in your fire ‘fit.
5. Rock a red lip
The scientists have spoken: a study from the University of Manchester found that red lipstick draws attention to the mouth, most notably from the opposite sex.
And sure, we don’t need to don red lipstick to attract someone to our lips. We can simply wear red lipstick—or any shade for that matter—because it makes us feel good. And that, friends, is the sexiest trait of all: feeling comfortable in your own skin.
6. Confidence is key
It’s been said many times, many ways: when you look good, you feel good. And that’s the thing about confidence. It isn’t about having a bold attitude. It’s about feeling good.
Sure, a red lip or a great outfit can do a lot for your confidence. But what’s underneath? Even more so.
We love layering date night outfits with soft, high-stretch lace lingerie—bras and panties that not only flatter our figures, but fit like a dream. Special occasion or not, you’ll feel an instant rush of confidence the moment you slip into your lingerie.
It’s the little secret to yourself that works wonders for your sex appeal.
7. Stand tall
Ever heard of power-posing? Before a first date or special night with your partner, take a few minutes to stand tall. Stretch out your arms and legs, and take a few deep breaths.
Science shows good posture is another key indicator of confidence. Plus, when you sit or stand straight, more oxygen can easily flow to your brain, helping you think more clearly, and feel calmer and naturally more confident.
