The Big Reveal1 of 12
By Tiffany Tse
Wearing revealing lingerie can make you self-conscious about your body, at a time when you most want to feel confident and look sexy. Whether you want to enhance your cleavage or flatter your rear, shop these 11 sultry, stylish sets and check out tips from Aerie's style-and-fit expert Jenny Altman.
Spill Proof2 of 12
Cleavage is sexy, but spilling out of your bra isn't. "Forget a tiny bralette when you need real support," says Altman. "Pick a bra that maximizes in functionality while looking delicate." Try Naked Princess's full-coverage bra, which offers support for bigger busts, but is still feminine and sexy.

Extra Padding3 of 12
Need a little lift? Opt for padded demi cups, like L'Agent by Agent Provocateur's set, which will enhance your chest by exposing the upper part of your bust and pushing up your cleavage. "Look for a bra with a bump in the bottom of the cup," says Altman. "This gives you a more natural lift than all-over padding."

To Dye For4 of 12
"An all-over print draws your eye to the waist area, hiding your hips and giving you a killer waistline," says Altman. Bonus? Thanks to sheer lace trim, a low back and flouncy shorts, Blu Moon's pretty romper is just as seductive as a bra and panty set too.

Thin Mint5 of 12
If you want to conceal your stomach, wear True & Co.'s blousy bodysuit. The suit masks your middle area, while its plunging neckline draws attention to your other assets. You can even wear this as a going-out top tucked into jeans.

Lace Case6 of 12
If you want to shorten a long torso, "Bring it down to size with a long-line bra and high-rise panty," says Altman. This combination covers up just the right amount of midsection. Our pick? Skivvies by For Love & Lemons' matching lacy set.

Think Pink7 of 12
To create the illusion of more curves, look for lace and frills, which can make a straight figure appear more voluptuous. "Less is not more here," says Altman. This IntiMint by Cosabella set has both, and the bra comes with an elastic band under the bust for a customized fit.

It's a Cinch8 of 12
"Nothing makes you look more curvaceous than a corset," says Altman. For an hourglass figure, find one with a cinched waist, like Von Follies by Dita Von Teese's bustier. While the corset whittles your midsection, the underwire bra pushes up your cleavage, creating a glamorous pin-up girl figure.

On the Rise9 of 12
Instantly flatten your tummy and smooth out muffin top by wearing high-rise underwear, such as Naja's retro pair. Additionally, the sheer side panels will help minimize your hips.

A Leg Up10 of 12
Want the illusion of supermodel legs? "Go for high-cut underwear styles," says Altman. "Styles that cut up, like a V-shape, at the top of the leg create a longer line than boy shorts would." Aerie makes a lace-trimmed bra and low-rise, high-cut thong perfect for making legs look lean and long.

Rear View11 of 12
"Give your tush a cute shape by wearing a flattering boy short silhouette," says Altman. "This shape visually lifts the rear for perkiness and shows just enough skin." Try Le Mystere's sheer mesh set for the right amount of coverage.
SHOP NOW: Le Mystere Isabella bra, $86, and boyshort, $38, lemystere.com
Thigh High12 of 12
"Chemises or babydolls that skim the thighs are flattering, and don't read as though you're covering yourself up," says Altman. We suggest Eberjey's super-soft chemise—the punchy blue hue and lacy trim will also distract from problem areas.
