Festive Costumes – Should You Take the Plunge?

When the festive season approaches, you may be thinking about what to wear to a party. Rather than that favoured little black dress, how about a Christmas themed dress?  Usually in traditional festive red and white, long or short Christmas dresses often come with the addition of Santa hats and/or festive stockings. Alternatively, if you don’t want to blend in with the crowd, how about an elf costume which comes in green as opposed to the usual Christmas mix of red/white.

Christmas Lingerie

If you were thinking that seasonal lingerie is probably not very sexy then you’d be incorrect. Unlike Christmas dresses, which can be made from velvet or have a velvet appearance to them, festive underwear is available in tempting sheer mesh or net allowing your partner to get a tantalising glimpse of what lies beneath.

Christmas Costume Accessories

If you already have a Christmas dress or some festive lingerie and you want to jazz up its appearance a little, then the addition of a simple accessory goes a long way. Christmas costume accessories include ladies Christmas stockings, Santa hats, elbow length red or white gloves, and capes. Popular themes for ladies Christmas stockings include opaque red and white striped stockings (sometimes with the addition of buckles at the top), sheer white stockings with lacy top bands and opaque white stockings with printed red bows. As you’d expect, Santa hats usually come with faux fur trim and a white pompom on the end.

Make Your Own

If you have the time, it can be a great deal of fun making your own Christmas clothing. For example, a relatively easy piece of Christmas lingerie to make is a Christmas present costume. All that you’ll need for this are two large pieces of red satin. You can extend the first piece from your crotch to one of your shoulders and then tie it together behind your back. The second piece goes around the back and is positioned over the bust. Tie this up at the front like a bow to give the appearance of a wrapped up Christmas present. This is a fun way to surprise your partner with your very own unique piece of lingerie without going to a great deal of expense.

Men’s Christmas Costumes

This usually comes with matching red and white trousers and jacket, a black belt, a Santa hat, a pair of gloves and some boot covers, although you can get Santa suits with just the suit and hat and minus the boot covers and gloves. Novelty themed costumes such as inflatable snowmen, Christmas trees and Christmas crackers are also available. However, men’s Christmas costumes are not just confined to Santa suits and novelty outfits. There is also a range of men’s novelty lingerie available including Christmas mankini’s, padded candy cane g-strings, present g-strings, Santa boxer shorts and snowman g-strings which are great fun!

So is it time that you ditched the traditional Christmas jumper in favour of sexy Christmas costumes, lingerie and novelty menswear?
